If you need to get more sleep, making your bedroom the coziest, most relaxing spot in the house is a good way to start. Check out these slumber-friendly tips for sleeping soundly and waking up refreshed.
Make a Modern Geometric Quilt
Does it get much cozier than a quilt? Making one yourself isn't nearly as challenging as you'd think (really!) and allows you to customize the colors and patterns to fit your space. Pro tip: Don't just leave yours on the bed — hang it on your wall to add warmth and texture to your bedroom.
Make a Marble Serving Tray
Relax in bed with a glass of wine at the end of a long day — or a cup of coffee before your day starts — without worrying about spilling it all over your comforter or duvet. Create a gorgeous marble serving tray to enjoy your beverages while not worrying about creating a mess.
Make Your Own Sleep Mask
If street lamps, personal electronics, or a super moon are invading your bedroom at night, a sleep mask is a worthy investment. Make one that you'll fall in love with by choosing your own fabric and decorative trim.
Build a Nightstand
In just a weekend's worth of time, you can upcycle a vintage crate into a nightstand that will definitely up your bedroom's coziness factor. You now have a place to store your books, display a vase of flowers or set your morning cup of coffee while you lay in bed just a little longer.
DIY Scented Wax Bars
Keep these DIY scented wax bars in your closet to keep your sheets and linens smelling fresh, or place one by your bed to add a hint of calming scents to your bedroom. They also make a wonderful alternative to candles if you can't have them in your home, apartment or dorm room.
