Besides being the place to rest, most people will usually have sex in the bedroom too. Regardless of whether it is the first time or the thousandth you are having intercourse in the bedroom, its atmosphere will either add to or distract from your sexual experience. Therefore, making your bedroom into a space that is comfortable, unique and inviting is one of the easiest and best things you can do to have a great sex life. Here are the ways you can make this happen.
(1) Make it clutter-free
If you want to have this romantic feel for your bedroom, you have to make it spacious. You have to remember that this is your bedroom and not a storeroom. Therefore you should avoid making it stuffy by placing only the things that you need. Keep unused stuff in the cabinet or in the closet. Also, you should not have any exercising equipment around because the bedroom is a place for lovemaking and relaxation and exercising equipment just do not fit in. By keeping your bedroom clutter-free, it will be more inviting, organized and welcoming.
(2) Invest in good quality paint
Low quality paint tends to leave a smell in your bedroom which can be toxic and cancer-causing. Use white or warm colors paint so that it will not be too dark when the lights are off.
(3) Get a comfortable bed
Make sure it is not too big for the room and preferably one that has built-in drawers underneath. Plush comforters and high-quality sheets will make you both feel comfortable in the bed. Depending on how much space you have, use a mixture of pillows: standard-sized, square or decorative ones with coordinated covers. Arrange them in such a way with the biggest ones at the back.
Use relaxing colors such as rich earth tones or calming blues and greens for your bed sheet. Using bed hangings and canopies can add another layer of mystery and privacy to your room. This will make your bed more romantic with those fabrics hanging at the sides. Make sure you choose a fabric that is light and gauzy to make it bear that softness feel.
(4) Add rugs
Aside from having cushy beddings, give your floor a soft feel by placing a soft rug (that is the same length of your bed) on either side of the bed. This can add to the cozy and comfortable feeling, giving your room a romantic ambience with all those softness around you.
(5) Use dim lighting
Lighting should be soft and filtered. Bright and glaring lights such as the overhead fluorescent lamp can detract from the ambience. Opt for those 40 watts lightings to add comfort and serenity. You can also use a table top lantern or a lamp at the side table. You may also make use of natural lights by having transparent curtains. Make sure the curtains compliment the bedding.
(6) Add mirrors
They can also add depth and make your room looks more spacious. You can use as many as you like and they can be any size. But just do not over-do this because you don’t want this to be too overwhelming. Or, you can just use a floor-standing mirror that can be move around the room which certainly adds spice to both the atmosphere and the action.
(7) Make it sexually functional
Everything that you could possibly want when you have sex should be within easy reach of your bed. Some sexual necessities that should be neatly stashed in one of the built-in drawers underneath the bed or near to the bed are: condoms, lubricant, breath mints, long silk scarves, sex toys, love cushion, and a roll of toilet paper or tissues for easy clean up. Have your favorite treats handy, maybe a box of chocolates that will be sure to tease. For a late-night indulgence, place strawberries and whipped cream on a small tray next to the bed.
(8) Add a little music and noise
Keep your favorite love songs at your iPhone. Soft love music is one of the easiest ways to lift up your mood. You can also invest in a bedside sound system to play your favorite mood-inducing music.
If you have a TV in the bedroom, use this only for watching erotic videos. This can be porn, or some romantic or scary movies. There are wide choices of movies that are perfect for getting both of you in the mood. Do not limit yourselves to the obvious ones.
