How to Create a Romantic Bedroom Setting

Feb 7, 2022 | Bedroom Environment

Love it or loathe it, Valentine’s Day is the one day a year so many of us unashamedly go all out with kind gestures, soppy words and thoughtful gifts for our loved ones.

To help you set the mood – because if not for Valentine’s Day, then it might come in handy one day – we’re sharing our top tips for creating a romantic bedroom setting.

Lighting

Light and dark are strong cues in telling your body when it’s time to wake up or go to sleep. Lighting choices are also ideal in helping to set an intimate mood. Pull across the curtains or blinds, turn off the big lights and switch to low lighting. If the bulbs in your bedside lamps are partially exposed, turn the lamps to face away from the bed so they can still provide a soft glow without the harshness of direct light. Alternatively, warm-toned fairy lights will add that special touch of magic.

If you are thinking about lighting candles, keep them on a heat resistant surface well away from any curtains and fabrics and never leave them unattended. Remember to extinguish them later! Read candle safety advice from the UK Fire Service.

Sound

Silence is golden for most people to sleep well. To create a romantic atmosphere, however, you could play some soft music in the background.

If you find yourself being disturbed by noise when it comes to bedtime, one of the best ways to combat this is having double glazing, as it muffles sounds from outside. You can also use foam earplugs to counter noise pollution. If you live in a busy household with hard floors, why not add soft rugs or even swap to carpet to help absorb sound, which will also help to boost the cosiness of the room.

Bedding

Think soft, sumptuous cottons or gentle silky textures. You should regularly rotate your mattress to improve its durability and lifespan, but if you have one that also needs to be turned, also known as flipped, (end to end and side to side), now is a good time to do it too. Read more advice on caring for your bed and mattress. Consider adding blankets, throws and cushions to add comfort and warmth if needed.

Temperature 

The temperature of your bedroom plays a role in creating the perfect sleep environment and romantic setting, affecting how well and how long you sleep. Achieving the best possible quality sleep is vital for your health and wellbeing, so make sure your bedroom temperature is around 16-18°C (60-65°F). Using your partner as a heat source – optional!

One last thing

Did you know that a double bed only gives you and your partner the same space to sleep in as a cot? If you find yourselves rolling towards each other in the night or are easily disturbed by your partner’s restless sleep, it might be time to replace your mattress. The average person tosses and turns up to 60 times a night, so you’re bound to be disturbed by a restless sleeper. Not only is it an investment in your sleep, but it is also an investment in your relationship. 

We recommend getting as big a bed as you can afford to be in with the chance of getting the best night’s sleep you can.
