4 Wise Ways To Transform Your Bedroom Into A Zen Haven

Tuesday, June 21, 2022

We all need somewhere that we can retreat from the stresses and strains of the world, and for many of us this is our bedroom. Yet, it's all too easy to let clutter and poor design choices interfere with this and end up with a space that’s anything but Zen. The good news is that there are ways you can transform any bedroom into a true Zen haven. Read on to find out what they are.

Choose the right storage

Probably the most important decision you will need to make when creating Zen-like heaven in your bedroom is the storage that you choose. There are two reasons for this. The first is that by having the proper storage you can ensure that every piece of clothing has a proper place, something that will significantly limit clutter, and help to keep your bedroom as organized and feeling as Zen as possible.

Secondly, the aesthetics of the storage furniture you choose will also contribute to the vibe of the room. Indeed, as the Zen look often favors low-profile pieces, something like a modern lowline chest of drawers would work perfectly. The reason is that not only do they provide plenty of space to keep your clothing and accessories organized, but are well crafted in a simple style that will help to keep the feel of the room relaxed.

Invest in a low-profile bed

While we are on the topic of lowline furniture, low-profile beds are also popular in Zen-style bedrooms. The reason for this is that they are based on a more traditional Japanese design and allow plenty of space between the bed and ceiling, giving a much more open and relaxed feel.

One of the most interesting and beautiful things about creating a zen room is that you are likely to want to bring in a lot of wood. Japanese beds are typically understated and stunning, but if you need something a little higher for ease of getting in and out of bed, then an Amish-made bed is ideal. And the craftsmanship and materials are designed to last for hundreds of years - a zenful investment!

Of course, no matter what type of bed you choose, if your room is to truly be a relaxing haven, and for a good night’s sleep you will need to invest in a good quality mattress. Indeed, while this will make little difference to the aesthetics of your space, it will make all the difference when it comes to relaxing and sleeping and will ensure that your bedroom truly is a haven in every sense of the word.

Keep decor to a minimum

For many people there is a fine line between clutter and decor, and this line can so easily be breached by one too many chachkis. With this in mind, it's better to keep things simple and preempt the risk of erring on the side of clutter by limiting decoration in the first place.

Marie Kondo is a good place to start here, in that you should keep any decor only to items that truly spark joy. Where possible pick single pieces that act as a focal point and draw the eye, such as one large framed print above the bed, or a long line vase with a single sculptural bloom.

Work with a neutral color pallet

Lastly, the colors you choose to use in your bedroom will have a significant impact on both how it looks and feels. With that in mind, if it's a peaceful space you are looking to create, a neutral color pallet is always the best option for walls, soft furnishing, carpets, and bedding.
