Not only do you spend a ton of time in your bedroom, you want to create a space that invites company too, right? A comfortable, stylish bedroom is instantly going to put your guests at ease and go a long way in setting the mood for a successful evening (and, hopefully, morning). Trust us on this one, it will get noticed and your efforts will be rewarded.
Before we discuss what items you need to have, hopefully, it goes without saying that keeping a neat, clutter-free room is super important. Not only is it better for your own well-being, but a bedroom that’s messy or looks like a mental institution is an instant turnoff for anyone else who may be brave enough to enter.
No matter your age, it’s time to invest in a good sheet set up. They look great, you’ll sleep better, and your company will thank you. There are a ton of great brands out there at all price points so whatever your budget is, there’s something for you. As we mentioned in our home upgrades article, we like Brooklinen and Parachute, two direct-to-consumer brands that are keen on bringing luxury linens direct to you, without ridiculous prices.
A Bluetooth Speaker
No matter what kind of mood you’re trying to set, a solid speaker is a must-have. Keep the tunes simple and unobtrusive by the way. And yeah, play it cool with the music, try some trip hop or low key downtempo electronic music. Usher is great, but maybe a little bit too obvious.
A Proper Mattress
On average, human beings spend 33 percent of our lives sleeping (and uh, doing other things) so why not live it up while you’re on your back. Like sheets, finding a great, affordable mattress has become infinitely easier thanks to the magic of the internet, so start there. We can’t stress enough how important a good mattress is for both sleeping and the aforementioned other things.
A Candle or Reed Diffuser
As we’ve mentioned, having an inviting space for guests hinges on a few major things, one of them being smell. There’s nothing sexy about a rank bedroom and a clean, masculine (but not overpowering) scent goes a long way. Did we say it shouldn’t be overpowering? Make sure it’s not overpowering, we can’t stress that enough.
The Right Pillows
Like your sheets and mattress, having comfortable pillows that are in good shape is part of a whole package that’s hopefully going to increase your chances with your package.
