Congratulations! You’ve tied the knot and are ready to move into your new humble abode. It’s one of the most exciting things to look forward to after your wedding day, and rightfully so.
Your home is where you’ll be creating new memories together, sharing the most intimate of moments, and in some cases, adding some new members to the family.
No matter how big or small your space is, here are a few ideas to get you started on making your new bedroom an oasis for the both of you.
1. Add a touch of home
This one is for any spouse that isn’t currently living in their home state. Adding a touch of home throughout the house and in the bedroom won’t necessarily make them feel at home, but it can provide the perfect touch for those homesick moments.
Something as small as state candles to remind them of a certain scent can be sentimental and wistful for your significant other.
A framed picture of a famous landmark from their home state is another great addition to the bedroom that can be placed in the corner of a nightstand or dresser.
Even better is if the picture had the both of you standing in front of that landmark to bring some good ol’ memories of the time spent back home.
2. Use proper bedding
If you’re used to sleeping alone, this one might take some getting used to. Fighting over color schemes, bedding style, and comfort levels isn’t the right way to start off your marriage journey, especially in the bedroom.
When choosing your bedding, Ela Lane sateen sheets are a great place to start looking.
Since they are made with organic cotton, not only do these types of sheets give off a luxurious look, they also provide a good night’s sleep due to the type of material they are made from.
When choosing colors, try to stay neutral. Cooling colors such as whites, ivorys, greys and beige are all colors that either gender can live with.
Not to mention, they are colors that are meant to relax you, which is exactly what you need to keep the cardinal rule of marriage: “Never go to sleep angry”.
3. Add some greenery
If you’re not parents yet, becoming plant parents should give you some sort of practice before you decide to become first-time parents to an actual baby.
There are many benefits to having a plant in the bedroom, the most important being that plants have the ability to make the air quality better.
Plants are known to purify the air and boost moods by relieving stress. Choosing a plant that fits your style is fun, just make sure its needs fit your lifestyle. If you’re looking for decorative pots, click here.
4. Add wedding day memories
Whether it’s your first look, a moment captured at the ceremony, or your first dance as husband and wife, adding these types of pictures to your bedroom are great little reminders of the day you both committed to each other.
To see a picture that brings back memories and emotions is a much needed piece to wake up to every day. Whether you had a big wedding or made a trip to the courthouse, the feeling is still the same.
You should want to relive that memory, and pictures will do just that.
5. Use your space wisely
Because there are now two people that will be sharing your dresser and closet space, you’ll want to use your storage space wisely or you’ll run out quickly. Investing in organizers and decorative storage boxes can help you stay organized with double the stuff.
If your closet doesn’t seem big enough to fit everything in it, it may be a good idea to invest in furniture such a bed that comes with storage drawers, bigger nightstands that also have good size drawers, or a storage bench to put at the foot of your bed.
Now that you’re all settled in, it’s time to snuggle up and enjoy the hard work you’ve put into making the perfect haven for the both of you.
