1. Get Rid of Clutter

A cluttered bedroom can be a source of stress, making it difficult to relax and get a good night’s sleep. Getting rid of clutter is necessary to turn your bedroom into a true oasis.

  • Start by decluttering your nightstand. Remove any items that don’t serve a purpose or that you don’t love.
  • Take a look at your closet – if it’s overflowing with clothes, it’s time to purge. Donate items you haven’t worn in a while or no longer fit. If you want to make a little money for your room project, you can sell your used items online or at a local consignment shop.
  • Next, look at the tops of your other furniture pieces and under your bed. Remove all unwanted items and make piles to organize or disperse to other rooms.
  • Pay attention to cords – they quickly clutter up a space and are often overlooked.
  • How do your walls look? Do you have too much displayed? Declutter your walls and any high-standing pieces of furniture like bookcases which are often the first things you notice when entering a room.

2. Add Plants or Flowers

“Plants give us oxygen for the lungs and for the soul.”(Terri Guillemets) Adding a plant to a space creates a new ambiance that is tough to get from any other object. Certain varieties of plants, such as lavender and jasmine, are known for their relaxing properties. And placing a few vases of fresh flowers around the room will not only fill the air with a pleasant fragrance but also provide a pop of color. There are a wide variety of house plants that not only are calming to the eye but also provide your room with purified air. Add a spider plant or pothos to your room, and you will not be disappointed! You can transform your bedroom into a blissful oasis with just a few simple changes and add a few health benefits in the process.

3. Use Candles or Aromatherapy

If you want to add a bit of ambiance to your space, candles are always a good choice. There are many different types of candles on the market, so you’re sure to find one that suits your needs. If you’re looking for something with a more relaxing effect, however, aromatherapy may be the way to go. A diffuser can help fill the room with a soothing scent, such as lavender or chamomile. You can find diffusers in all sizes and colors. My favorite diffuser has a timer and I can change the lighting based on the mood I am looking for – win, win!

4. Play Calming Music

Nothing says relaxation like some calming music. Whether you prefer the sound of waves crashing on the shore or classical piano, find a playlist that suits your taste and play it in the background while you’re getting ready for bed or just taking some time to unwind. Music can have a calming effect on the mind and body, so it’s definitely worth giving it a try!

5. Invest in Comfortable Bedding

Your bed should be a haven, so make sure you have comfortable bedding that you love. If your mattress is outdated or uncomfortable, it may be time to upgrade or look into a quality mattress topper. And don’t forget about the pillows! Make sure you have enough pillows to support your head and neck and consider investing in a body pillow if you often wake up with aches and pains. Let’s not forget the high thread-count cotton sheets or add a touch of posh with some satin sheets; either type will help make your bed extra cozy.

6. Add a Comfortable Chair or Lounger

Adding a comfortable chair or lounger to your bedroom can make it feel more like a spa if you have the space. It’s the perfect spot to curl up with a good book, write in your journal, or nap. If you don’t have the space for a large piece of furniture, consider adding a bean bag chair instead. Throw a few pillows and a blanket across the chair or lounger to add comfort.

7. Create the Relaxing Mood with Soft Lighting

The proper lighting can make all the difference in creating a relaxing atmosphere. Take advantage of natural sunlight during the day if your bedroom has windows – adding a set of sheer curtains can make the light that streams in appear softer. At night, use soft lighting to create a calming effect. Adding a dimmer switch can help you make the perfect ambiance by controlling the light levels. Fairy lights added to a dresser can soften the hard edges and give the space a more calming appearance.

8. Keep Electronics Out of the Bedroom

This one may be difficult for some people, but it’s important to keep electronics out of the bedroom to create a truly relaxing space. That means no TV, laptop, or cell phone. If you can’t bear to part with your devices, at least make sure they’re turned off and out of sight while trying to relax. Grab a good book or (gasp!) write a letter to a loved one as you wind down from a tough day.


Spas are great for escaping our hectic lives; however, with a few simple changes, you can make your bedroom into a spa-like sanctuary. From adding calming music to ensuring you keep electronics out of the bedroom, you now have guidelines to make your room a haven you can escape to each evening. The next time you are at the store, grab a plant or a new pillow and begin to feel your room transform!
