Written by Our Home


Posted on May 10 2024

Moms are the tireless superheroes of our lives. And this Mother’s Day, one way to express your love and appreciation is by transforming her bedroom into a cozy retreat, where she can unwind, relax and recharge. Designing a space that reflects her personality and meets her comfort needs is a thoughtful gesture she’ll cherish every day. 


At OUR HOME, we believe in designing beautiful spaces that nurture well-being.  Here are some tips and inspirations to help you create a bedroom for the special moms in your life.

Planning Mom's Dream Retreat

As a mom leading a busy life, having a well-designed bedroom to unwind after a long day can do wonders in relaxation, mood elevation, and taking a break from household chores and work. Here’s how you can start planning your mom’s dream retreat:

Take note of mom's preferences

Take some time to understand your mom's specific needs and preferences. Does she prefer a bright, airy, intimate, cozy bedroom? What activities does she enjoy doing in her bedroom (reading, journaling, meditating)? Consider any physical limitations requiring specific bedroom furniture arrangement or accessibility features.

Know the bedroom layout and size

This will dictate the bedroom furniture placement and design elements you can incorporate. Measure the room first for a comfortable bedroom floor plan with enough space for movement and storage. When considering bedroom furniture, keep in mind the size of the room—choose a wooden bed frame or platform bed that won't overwhelm the space.


Bedroom Design Tips to Follow

Embrace relaxing bedroom colors

Opt for soft, soothing colors that promote relaxation. Consider bedroom color ideas like light blue, lavender, pale green, or neutrals like beige and cream. If Mom loves a pop of color, use it lightly with decorative bed pillows or wall artwork. Explore different bed sheet designs and bed sheet materials in these calming color palettes to create a cohesive look.

Optimize furniture placement for flow and relaxation

Arrange furniture to promote a sense of flow in the bedroom and avoid crowding the space. Place the bed frame away from the door and in the center of the room. Create a comfortable reading nook at the side with a recliner or armchair with a side table. 

Utilize vertical space with cabinets or shelves for storage. Consider a bed frame with a headboard for added comfort and style.


Create a clutter-free sanctuary with smart storage solutions

A cluttered space can feel overwhelming. Invest in storage solutions that blend seamlessly with the design. Consider bed frames with under-bed storage, stylish baskets, or wall-mounted shelves. Utilize space-saving bedroom furniture like ottomans with storage compartments.

Choose the perfect bed mattress for ultimate comfort

Selecting the right mattress is crucial for a good night's sleep. Choose a mattress with the right firmness level that suits Mom's sleeping position and preference. 

A foam bed mattress contours to the body, providing support and pressure relief, while a memory foam mattress is a great option for light sleepers. Don't forget to pair the mattress with comfortable pillows for added comfort.


Opt for a comfortable bedding for a restful sleep

Soft sheets in natural fabrics invite restful sleep. Explore different bed sheet materials like cotton or linen. Consider layering bed sheets and comforters with throws and blankets for added comfort, especially during cooler months. Choose a set of cozy bed sheets and pillowcases in a calming color scheme to complete the look.

Opt for warm, dimmable lights for a relaxing atmosphere and brighter task lighting for reading or dressing. Table lamps beside the bed add a cozy touch.


Add decorative touches to personalize the space

Personalize mom’s bedroom with meaningful decorations. Frame family photos, hang calming artwork, or display her favorite quote. A flower bouquet or a scented candle can add a touch of nature and fragrance. 

Creating a serene bedroom sanctuary for Mom is a thoughtful and meaningful project. With a little planning and design inspiration, you can transform her space into a relaxing haven!
