Bedrooms are a place to relax and decompress at the end of each day, so it’s important they’re as comfortable as they are functional. The flooring experts at Unique Flooring in San Diego understand the need for balance in the home and offer these seven must-haves for every bedroom.

  1. Two Bedside Tables
    If you don’t need a place for a glass of water, book, alarm clock and/or glasses at the end of the night, you are one of just a handful. Even if you don’t have a significant other who stays over and might need his or her own space on their side of the bed, having two will help create symmetry and balance in the room.
  2. Seating
    If your bedroom is large enough, it is always a good idea to have somewhere to sit that isn’t on your bed. Having a separate space to sit will help train your brain to think of your bed as a place only for sleep. It also gives any guests in your room a place to sit.
  3. A Good Mattress
    A good mattress is the gift that keeps on giving, and one of those bigger purchases you deserve to make after landing a real grownup job. Make the investment in a good mattress so you can sleep soundly and with fewer aches and pains the next morning. You will thank yourself for it.
  4. Soft Carpets
    First thing in the morning it is always nicer to put your feet down on a soft rug rather than a hard, cold floor. Whether you have hardwood floors throughout your home or carpeting, lay down a nice area rug so your feet have somewhere soft to land in the mornings. If you already have carpet, a rug is a great way to bring extra color into a room.
  5. Calming Art and Colors
    You may be a fan of bold prints and colors, but studies show they can make it difficult to relax. Go for colors and patterns in your art and decor that bring a sense of calm, like white, soft blues, and muted greens.
  6. Plenty of Storage
    It’s hard to relax when you come into a room and see your belongings scattered everywhere. If you have a small space or little closet room, get creative with your storage solutions. Look at furniture with extra storage or low profile containers that can slide beneath the bed.
  7. Cohesiveness
    Like with any room, having a cohesive theme can help make a bedroom feel finished. If you can’t afford a matching bedroom set, try to make sure the items you have look like they belong together. It will bring the room together and make you feel more at ease while you are there. If you are crafty, you can also paint or refinish and stain items to match.
