The Best 10 Tips To Create A More Romantic Bedroom:- The most intimate relationship two people on earth can have is “Marriage”. It is a powerful union, having the ability to bind hearts together like spiritual glue, produce offspring, and even heal the body and soul.
These days, genuine sexual intimacy has a remarkable power to heal, renew, refresh, restore, and sustain the marriage relationship. Yet the one place where marital fidelity is most intimate - the bedroom - is often treated as a storeroom for clutter. Instead, the bedroom should be a place where love and romance are cultivated, encouraged, and celebrated. This is the one room where you and your spouse can enjoy the relationship that God created for you to share, so there should be special attention paid to it.
Women are especially affected by the state of the bedroom because we feel connected to the home in a personal way. We often see the home as an extension of our personalities and style. The colors, wall decorations, furniture, pictures, etc., are all selected based on what we want others to know about us.
You can ask yourself this question: If a friend were to walk into your bedroom today, what would she say about your marriage based on what she found?
If the answer to that question leaves you feeling inadequate, these 10 ideas will help you turn your bedroom into an incubator for romance.
Ideas For A Romantic Bedroom
1. Put Away Clutter
Everyone has them- stacks of bills, coupons, random newsletters that have not been read and the list goes on. Make a stack on the dresser or chest of drawers in your bedroom, if in case you do not want to forget about them or may be you just do not know where to store them.
To the tops of your bedroom furniture, place all those pictures, candlesticks, decorations, and children’s painting. All of this clutter must go somewhere else, if you want a romantic bedroom.
Put large items in a box and store them in the hall closet or under the bed, to help de-clutter. In tall baskets, preferably with lids stack loose papers, that can double as hiding spaces and decor.
By simply straightening up the room, you will be less burdened without the constant reminders of looming projects and feel more relaxed.
2. Do Not Use Your Bedroom As Storage
Much similar to the previous one, but this can be a permanent problem if you use your bedroom as storage.
As much as possible, remove stored items from your room. This requires an investment of time. To sort through the stored items, take a day and decide which need to be put away in their proper place, given away or sold, or moved someplace else for continued storage. Then take advantage of hidden spaces in your house to store the leftover items.
Use places such as:
Space under beds : Spend on storage boxes that are made to fit under the bed and roll for easy access. Utilize this space in children’s rooms, as well, if you are storing toys and children’s clothing.
Trunks : Trunks can double as tables and/or decorations in a bedroom or living area, depending on the size. It gives both an aesthetic value and a practical one.
Baskets : This is another valuable de-cluttering item. Fill the baskets with storage. Put them on a bookshelf or under tables as decorations.
3. Choose Colors That Soothe
The color scheme is as important as the decorations you select for your bedroom. This is because you can connect your emotions with the colors. Decorate your home with the colors you and your family love. It does not matter what the latest trends are or what the fashion gurus think. What does matter is that you love your home and that your choices make sense for you and your family.
If you do not know what colors and styles you like, start looking through home magazines and catalogs. Tear out the pages that have colors and designs you are drawn to. Soon, you can see a pattern develop, and to decorate your own bedroom you can use these ideas.
4. Use Many Of Your Best Decorations
Women often use their best decor for the living room, den, or kitchen, where guests are most likely to frequent, and send the leftovers to the bedroom. The bedroom should be a priority as the heart of your home lies within the relationship between husband and wife. To enhance your romance, your spouse will appreciate the extra attention.
Find several of your best decorations that fit with the color scheme in your bedroom, by going through your house. Then find a place for them. Be careful not to create more clutter, but instead flatter the room. Put as much effort into this room as you would a room with higher traffic.
5. Use Decorations To Remind You Of Special Memories
Frame and display photos from your wedding and honeymoon, or from other special times together. You can frame a copy of your wedding vows even. You will be nostalgic of how your love blossoms and grows over the years by looking at the memories.
6. Invest In Candles And Burn Them Often
Some couples use candles mainly to decorate tables and shelves. But they miss out on the soft lighting and subtle fragrances that candles can offer a room. There is no romantic ambiance than a candlelight. Find various fragrances and colors that you and your spouse love, and make it a habit of burning them.
7. Spray Linens And Clothing With Refreshing Scents
A quick and easy way to keep sheets smelling fresh, and the soothing fragrances can calm a stressed loved one is the linen spray. In the similar manner, body sprays can also keep you smelling fresh and even sweeten your time together.
8. Take Out The Television
Do not make the big mistake of spending time in front of the television, as it keeps the attention off of your lives. And before you realize, your time together before bed slips away through the world of media. You open up free time to reconnect with your spouse in a special way without distractions, just by the simple act of removing TV.
9. Play Romantic Music
There is something in music that can make or break the mood in a room.
Find a way to play music in your bedroom, whether you use a full stereo set with surround sound, or simple iPod speakers. Whether it is a collection of standards, classical, or soft rock, select a variety of music that soothes both you and your spouse. Do not forget to include songs that carry special meanings and memories. Make it a habit of putting on your favorite tunes to both relax and create a loving mood.
10. Wear An Attitude To Match
A beautiful bedroom only provides half the romance. It will not be the warm place of love that it was meant to be, if you give your spouse the cold shoulder, or use the bedroom to manipulate to get what you want.
Work to make your time in the bedroom a time of building up your marriage emotionally and spiritually. Avoid getting into conflicts before bedtime, pray together regularly, and make efforts to communicate in loving ways.
If you practice these things, no matter how your bedroom looks to the eye, the heart will recognize it as a place of true love.
