Zen Bedroom Ideas: How to Make your Bedroom Peaceful

Struggling to sleep? Perhaps your bedroom is to blame. Most people would agree that enjoying a good night’s sleep is made all the easier by being in a peaceful, stress-free environment. Thankfully, creating the perfect ambience for slumber is very simple with the right know-how.

Whether you’re looking to overhaul your décor or want a few simple yet modern bedroom design ideas to implement in an instant, we’ve got plenty of ideas here at Neville Johnson.

How to make your room zen

When it comes to how to make your bedroom more peaceful, there’s an endless array of tips and tricks to try.

1. De-clutter

A tidy house can encourage a clear mind. It will come as no surprise that de-cluttering is the first step to making your bedroom zen. Having everything put away, with no clothes, cosmetics or other items strewn across your surfaces or floor, will immediately make the space feel more relaxing. Good storage is the key to this. Why not browse our portfolio of fitted wardrobes for more inspiration?

2. Consider your colours

Specific colour schemes are more peaceful than others. For example, bright shades like sunshine yellow or apple red might seem cheerful at first, but they’re not going to do much to keep your mind restful and calm.

Instead, try to adopt warmer neutral tones in your walls, furnishings and interiors. They’ll help create a feeling of serenity in your bedroom and provide less distraction when you’re trying to drop off to sleep.

3. Let in the light

A dull, dingy room is never an inviting place to be. Instead, ensure your bedroom gets plenty of natural light through windows and skylight if you have the option. You can also create the illusion of brightness with soft lighting solutions, from eye-catching pendant lights to bedside lamps featuring warm bulbs.

Zen bedroom inspiration

Once you’ve cleared away the clutter, solved your storage and adopted a neutral colour scheme, you’ll be well on your way to creating a blissful bedroom.

  • Maximise your space – a room jam-packed with furnishings is bound to feel a little claustrophobic after a while. Space out your furniture where possible and remove anything that’s not necessary
  • Bring nature inside – is there anything more soothing than the natural world? Bringing the outside in with some earthy paint tones or a few lush houseplants
  • Keep your bed centred – ensuring your bed is positioned centrally in your bedroom, with a gap on either side of it, will help balance out the space
  • Choose the perfect headboard – headboards are not only for supporting your back when you’re sitting up in bed, but they’re also an important design feature. A plush fabric option will give your bedroom a luxurious feel. At the same time, a pared-back wooden style plays into bringing the outside in

Give your bedroom a zen makeover by keeping all your belongings tucked away in bespoke fitted furniture. Browse the full range to discover wardrobe designs and dressing room options in a wide range of elegant finishes. You could also request a free design visit from one of our expert consultants.

“I would really recommend Neville Johnson to anyone”

A real easy process, I would really recommend Neville Johnson to anyone. From the first phone call through to a very skilled fitter (who had to go above and beyond with our old house not having one straight line in it) it was all so easy. We couldn’t be happier that we chose to use Neville Johnson.

“Hugely admired by family and friends”

The room is transformed and has been hugely admired by family and friends. I was pleasantly surprised by the attentive and courteous client care – everything went according to plan and nothing seemed too much trouble. They were in regular contact before and after the installation. I would highly recommend Neville Johnson to anyone wanting to transform a room.

Cherry Murdoch, London

“I cannot recommend this company enough”

I cannot recommend this company enough. From first contact we received very high quality service. We were informed as to everything that was going on, which was backed up by the necessary paperwork, plans and phone calls. The fitter was competent and the work he did we can’t fault.

Mrs K Holroyd, Wrexham

“Effortless from start to finish”

From the moment the brochure was delivered, I was optimistic that we were buying quality. I wasn’t disappointed. All contact made was courteous, polite and clear, with phone calls confirmed by email. In short, we’re really thrilled with our library and it was effortless from start to finish.
