Romance In The Bedroom

Keeping romance alive is one of the essential things in any love relationship. 

Romance is vital in these difficult times when circumstances distance millions of people from their loved ones. So, if your top priority is to make romance happen, keep on reading and find out how to create a more intimate bedroom. 

Here are nine useful tips on setting an intimate mood by making your bedroom more romantic and inviting. Check out our guidelines, get down to business, and transform your bedroom into a cozy romantic retreat.

1. First of all, clear away any clutter.

The first step you need to take is to declutter your bedroom

Decluttering is essential because too much unnecessary stuff is distracting - so start the cleaning process and get rid of anything that doesn't belong in your bedroom. 

If you're using your bedroom as a 'floordrobe" then, begin removing clothes piling up on your floor. Please put them in a laundry basket and keep the floor clean and passable. 

Also, be sure to put away all the books and magazines sitting around for a long time. If you have too many decorative pillows, reduce their number, and you won't have to spend a lot of time every morning getting them in place. 

These first steps will start the magic.

2. Add scented candles for a more intimate atmosphere.

Is there anything better than a romantic evening in a candle-lit bedroom? We don't think so, which is why you should get scented candles as soon as possible.

Scented candles contribute to a more intimate atmosphere. For example, a combination of lavender, ginger, and sandalwood is a perfect choice that is vibrant yet so relaxing. You can't make a mistake with them. 

Apart from this combo, you won't go wrong if you choose well-known scents such as vanilla or jasmine. Both of them are very soothing and romance-enticing, plus you can find them everywhere. 

Minty scents are quite popular, as well as lavender and rosemary. They are very stimulating and can boost the mood, which is why you shouldn't skip them.

3. Transform your bed into a romantic retreat.

Creating a more intimate bedroom can never be complete if you fail to transform your bed into a romantic retreat. There are many ways to do it, and the first one is to change up your bedding. 

There's something special about a brand new set of flannelette sheets. So, check them out and get one that perfectly fits into the overall color scheme in your bedroom. 

Trust us when we say that these sheets will provide complete comfort and all the coziness you need. Besides the sheets, make sure to get the softest wool blankets and throws, too. 

Apart from looking amazing, these will keep you warm during the cold winter months and encourage you to cuddle up to your loved one every night. 

Does it get better than that? We don't think so.

4. Install appropriate lighting.

When it comes to lighting in your bedroom, you need to be aware of several things.  

First of all, your bedroom should have a lot of natural light, so that you can feel super energized in the morning. To maximize natural light, choose a bedroom with big windows. 

On the other hand, you'll also need romantic lighting at night. 

Firstly, remember to switch off your overhead light. Aside from being very unflattering, it's often too bright as well. That'll be too much for your romantic activities with your partner, won't it? 

Instead, use bedside lamps that feature a soft glow. The aforementioned scented candles are a fabulous idea, as well as cute tea lights. No matter which option you pick, keep it smooth, and you'll do the right thing.

5. If possible, build a fireplace.

You probably already know this, but let us say it once again – a bedroom with a fireplace will ignite the passion in the blink of an eye. 

There is something extraordinary about a fireplace in a bedroom, so consider this idea, and you won't make a mistake. On average, building a fireplace costs around $2,500, depending on if it runs on gas, electricity, or wood. 

This cost might not be an affordable home improvement option but will reap dividends over the long term. So, find reliable fireplace installers near you and get an estimate. 

However, if you're on a budget and can't afford a real one, you can always come up with a DIY faux fireplace.

A faux fireplace is a fantastic addition to your bedroom that won't break the bank, so go for it, and you won't regret it because it likely will add up to an intimate atmosphere in your bedroom.

6. Hang a romantic canopy.

Hanging a canopy is the next thing you should do to make your bedroom more romantic and inviting. 

Many people don't understand all the hype around canopies, claiming that these are just pieces of sheer fabric. But they do transform your room appealingly and romantically. 

Yes, it's all about the lovely, semi-sheer fabric. A gorgeous canopy will make your bedroom feel like a dreamy wonderland, so give it a try, and you'll see the transformation yourself.

The best thing about a canopy is that you can make it on your own. All you need to get is a hula hoop and lightweight fabric such as gauze or soft tulle. 

When your simple yet effective canopy is all done, you can add string lights for an even better visual effect. It'll instantly make your bedroom more romantic.

7. Opt for a luxurious headboard.

Yes, we know that it seems a bit silly, but the truth is that many people pay extra attention to the design of their headboard. A well-designed headboard can make a sizeable romantic impact in a bedroom. 

First of all, a luxurious headboard made from fabrics such as velvet, faux suede, and brushed linen can take your bedroom interior to a new level.  

Similarly to a romantic canopy, you can transform your headboard all by yourself, too. Just make sure to find your inspiration and choose a soft and luxurious fabric. 

Then, follow the steps of a DIY tutorial to come up with a fabulous headboard.

8. Use fluffy pampas grass as decoration.

In case you didn't know, pampas grass is one of the hottest topics in the interior design industry these days. 

Pampas grass is a type of ornamental grass that is popular in many landscapes. So, be sure to take advantage of it if it's available in your area.

Pampas grass is very soft and fluffy, which makes it perfect for bedroom decoration. Just one stalk of grass can do wonders for your interior, so give it a fair shot as soon as possible. 

Even though it comes in various colors, you can always go for a neutral one that works in all settings. Of course, if you want to add a touch of color to your bedroom, be sure to choose pink or purple pampas grass instead.

Just spray your stalks with hairspray to help them last, and you won't have to replace them for a long time.

9. Keep the mood focused on romance and intimacy.

Last but certainly not least, you must learn how to keep the mood focused on romance and intimacy.

Achieving the right mood is the most crucial aspect of creating a more intimate bedroom, so pay extra attention to it. 

One thing to do is to turn off your TV or remove it from your room. This device can be too distracting, so get rid of it, and everything will instantly be much better.

To spice it up more, sprinkle your bed with beautiful rose petals. It's a grand romantic gesture that'll also show your most intimate intentions.

Music is another excellent way to make the atmosphere more intimate and romantic. However, if this isn't your cup of tea, you can always play one or two memorable songs in the background.

Songs that the two of you love will always increase the mood, no matter what genre.
