Adding Accessories to Your Bedroom

Your bedroom should be an oasis! Although you might feel like your bedroom is complete once you add in the basics like the bed, dressers, and nightstands — accessories are the only way to truly create a warm and cozy bedroom that provides you with the perfect space to unwind. So here are some of the top accessories that you need for your bedroom:

Rug

One of the first accessories you need for your bedroom (especially if you have wood or tile floors) is a nice area rug. Nothing is worse than getting out of bed on a cold day and stepping in freezing cold floor! An area rug is a great way to soften up your bedroom and provide some extra color and design elements. You should look for a rug that shows at least 18 inches on each side with the bed on top — this usually translates to a 5 by 8 or 8 by 10 rug. 

Curtains

Another accessory that you will definitely need for your bedroom is curtains. Curtains are essential in a bedroom to help block out light and provide you with the ability to get a perfect night’s sleep no matter how early the sun comes up! Some people opt to go with total blackout curtains. This is a great option if you often sleep during the day. For other people, however, it might be a good idea to get curtains with some amount of sheerness just so that your body can wake up more naturally and stay on rhythm along with the sun. 

Lighting 

No bedroom is complete without lighting! Bedroom lighting will look different from lighting in other areas of your house like your kitchen or bathroom. Bedroom lighting needs to be softer so that you can start to relax before going to sleep. If you have nightstands, you should definitely get some small table lamps to place on each table. You also might need to add a floor lamp to brighten up dark corners. Finally, adding a ceiling light whether it’s a traditional ceiling fan or a glam chandelier is a great way to provide your bedroom with enough light. 

Bean Bag Chair

Chairs are always nice to have in bedrooms, but what if I told you that there were giant bean bag chairs that could actually double as an extra bed? And no, we aren’t talking the old pleather bean bag chairs with little foam pellets. There are now high-quality plush bean bag chairs that are the perfect place to lounge out and read a book or scroll through social media before going to bed. Furthermore, these bean bag chairs can unzip and unfold into an actual bed — making this an essential product if you frequently have guests who might not want to sleep on the couch or a cheap air mattress. 

Mirror

Another accessory that you need to add to your bedroom in a mirror. Of course, you need a mirror in your bedroom to check out your outfits as you’re putting them on. We personally love full-length mirrors or even oversized mirrors that way you can get the total picture of your outfit — shoes and all!

Blankets and Pillows

The final accessories that you need to add to your bedroom are throw blankets and pillows to make the space feel more cozy and stylish. Blankets and pillows add more texture to your room and can help you achieve the bed of your dreams! We personally love beds with tons of throw pillows and a nice knotted, knit, or fleece blanket to curl up with after a long day. 

 

So go ahead and take the next step with your bedroom decor and complete your room with style along with these amazing accessories!
