I will share with you 9 ''Zen'' bedroom ideas, which will turn your bedroom a real oasis of sleep and rest allowing you to enjoy a better quality night's sleep.

The bedroom is the place where you start and end your day, your bedroom is for rest and tranquility, time - when you need to take care of yourself, and, of course, get the proper sleep. But sometimes it seems that inner peace in the bedroom is completely unattainable. By redesigning the decor in your bedroom, you can bring more peace and increase the quality of sleep. Start thinking of your bedrooms as an oasis of relaxation and reflection that helps you gather strength for the day ahead. So, below are nine “ZEN” steps that will help turn your bedroom into a real sleep and harmony sanctuary.


You can create a cozy environment with the kind of textiles you want to touch. Boldly create a harmonious atmosphere with cushions of various textures and patterns, cozy blankets, ornate linens, or floor mats. Using soft fabrics and a variety of dreamy textures, you will create your own temple where you can rest and relax.


Close your eyes and take your thoughts to a place where you feel easy and harmonious. Maybe it’s the ocean, maybe the mountains, or maybe the tropical oasis? Incorporate this theme into your bedroom. Nature always inspires relaxation. Combining forest details, family portraits, or sea view with the interior can get modern, calm twists and turn your bedroom into a lovely oasis of peace.


At the end of the day - the bed is the best place to relax, but if you want to raise the level of comfort, be sure to consider the cozy and comfortable sitting areas integration ideas into your bedroom. It can become a great place for evening meditation, for time to yourself with a cup of tea, rather than scrolling the phone, or maybe a cozy corner for reading a book. Such a cozy corner can be created just with several pillows and a couple of candles or a hanging hammock. Bench at the ends of bed or set of armchairs will perfectly fit for this, the most important while creating to give a green light to your imagination. Admire your personal wishes and look at your room space with a fresh glance.


To enhance the atmosphere of your bedroom, choose accents of neutral colors. Larger abstract paintings in natural colors hung at eye level are very recommended. They adding a fresh look to the bedroom with their color scheme. The sleeping area is for relaxation, so the artworks should reflect that, so don't overdo it with the bold colors. A few bold accents bring the painting vitality, but the overall look and color gamma should be calmer. The most common place to hang a painting in the bedroom is directly above the bed or on the wall in front of the bed. When choosing a work of art, look for what you really like, I recommend choosing abstract works with soothing colors. The final result should be a fairly quiet space that allows the eyes and soul to rest.


The connection between man and nature is very special and old. It is no secret that the integration of natural elements in the home improves well-being and overall health. The bedroom is a great place to stimulate the brain impulses, and accents from nature are a great tool to do so. Good and calm energy in the bedroom can be created by choosing natural materials. How to do it? Place a big beautiful plant or a few smaller ones. Flowers and plants not only bring some coziness but also clean the air. Integrate wooden details, by choosing wooden furniture or small details like wood incenses, book holders, shelves, and others. A wooden bench at the end of the bed, a beautiful wicker chair, or rough wooden tables next to the bed will bring a sense of naturalness. Take care of the elements of coziness, place natural candles with your favorite scent - for a zen bedroom, I recommend oriental spice candles or Himalayan salt lamp. All these will give the bedroom more harmony and bring a little magic. Now, most importantly open up to creativity and senses.


Sunlight is important for our body and soul, the natural sunlight radiating through the bedroom window not only performs the function of lighting but can also become a natural pleasant alarm clock. If you want a cozy and calm atmosphere in your bedroom space, hang a light retractable curtain or light retractable blinds that will not block the natural daylight and will transmit daylight and heat well. Don't forget after and before sleep let in the fresh air into the bedroom. Fresh oxygen is important for the sleep and positive energy.


Clutter unbalances, makes you feel hurried and even depressing, so be sure to include as many storage solutions as possible in your bedroom. The Japanese suggest "thinking vertically" and place objects on the smallest possible horizontal surface. The less busy the floor area is, the more bedroom space look visually larger. Bed headboard shelves, space under the bed, or a niche with shelves above the bed are great spaces for storage. Look for creative and functional solutions when planning your space.


A monochromatic color gamut is a color scheme based on only one color tone. In such an interior, only shades of one color are used, obtained by changing the saturation and brightness of the main color. Black and white are almost always added because they are the brightest and add accents. A monochromatic bedroom creates harmony, so it is a good choice if you are a little tense - in such an environment, the eyes maneuver in calm tones of one shade, so it works soothingly. Like nowhere else, the texture of furniture and other details is easily highlighted in monochromatic space, so you can experiment with a variety of rough surfaces and other bright textures.


It is fun to have a lot of small and cute stuff in your living space, but in the bedroom leave only well-thought-out details and things, thus clearing the energy of the room. Keep some of your favorite houseplants, framed photos, incense, or a book you’re currently reading, but do so consciously and selectively without overloading your resting oasis with items. So, take a close look again at your bedroom space and the items in it. Leave only meaningful and precious items, thus energetically cleaning your bedroom area and preparing it for a cleaner and better sleep.

I hope that all these ideas will help your bedroom become more Zen and it will become a real oasis of sleep and peace of rest, where you will be able to enjoy a high-quality night's sleep. I wish to you harmonious changes and restful sleep!
