After a long day at work, all we want to do is head home and lie down on soft sheets laid on a comfortable bed. But, ever wondered why most of us tend to sleep better in a hotel room than in our own beds? With a simple upgrade to your home, you can come back from work to a luxurious and warm space, instead of a cluttered living room and an unmade bed.
A comfortable bedroom is a must-have: Your bedroom definitely needs the most attention when you’re thinking of giving your home an upgrade. After all, none of us can be as happy as we are without a goodnight’s rest. Don’t shy away from investing in high-quality cotton (opt for the highest thread count you can afford) sheets and a comforter, as they are sure to last you for years. Make sure to have enough lighting from the bedside lamps for your bedtime reading. You can add a contemporary daybed or a settee by the window if you want to work. Using your bed only to sleep in makes it easier to fall asleep. Pay attention to the curtains in the bedroom and use black-out drapes to ensure the morning the street lights don’t wake you.
Allow ample lighting indoors : We would have all noticed how hotel rooms are never dark, and are rather well-lit with side lamps, art lights and mood lighting in every corner. Proper lighting not only makes the rooms bright, but also gives the home a luxurious warmth, without having to invest too much. Apart from allowing a good amount of natural light to flow into your home during the day through windows, have enough light fixtures in the living room, dining area, bathrooms, vanity tables and study area. Opt for mood lighting that allows you to change the light intensity as per your need and time of the day.
Add a pop of colour: Another simple way to give a chic vibe to your home in an inexpensive way is to add colour through plush cushions, indoor plants or wall paper to accentuate the walls. Rugs, throw blankets, DIY artworks, and mirrors can also help in improving the appearance of the space significantly, while being within your budget.
