There is nothing quite as wonderful as the feeling of sleeping under the stars. Being able to gaze up into the heavens, marveling at their wonder…
… then the bad side begins to creep in. For one thing, sleeping outdoors is not all it is cracked up to be. There are bugs to deal with, the fact it feels a little unsafe, and you are going to be waking up with a crick in your neck no matter what you do.
Yet there is no denying that the feeling of being under the stars is wonderful.
Perhaps the obvious solution, then, is to try to bring the stars into your home. It might not be quite as magnificent as the real thing, but it definitely has a few upsides that sleeping outdoors just cannot compare with. Being able to sleep in your own comfortable bed and still be able to have that sense of wonder? That is pretty hard to beat…
Option One: The Big One
The first option requires some renovating, but if you do it right, then it could be delightful.
If you move your bedroom into a converted attic, then that brings with it a possibility of a skylight. If you do this right with pros like the Southside group, then you are going to be able to create a spectacular vista for yourself. You can position your bed beneath the skylight, throw the window open and then gaze out into the night sky – but without the unfortunate side effects.
This might sound like a lot of work just for a peek of the sky, but there are plenty of other reasons to want to create a master bedroom suite in the attic. If you are not afraid of a little hard work and want a benefit that anyone would envy, then it might just be worth considering.
Option Two: The Medium One
Want something smaller without the need for extensive renovations? Then perhaps the best bet is to look into novelty lights that light an image of the night sky on a wall or ceiling. These work particularly well for night lights for kids, but there’s no reason you couldn’t bring one into the main living area and use it as a special feature as well.
With these lights, generally, the more you pay the better they will be in terms of quality. So shop around and see what you can find for the budget you have available; it is always worth having a look on eBay to see if you can score yourself a deal.
Option Three: The Small (But Still Good!) One
Perhaps the simplest option of all, though admittedly the less realistic. You can create an image of the night sky using glow-in-the-dark stickers. You might associate these with kid’s rooms also, but done correctly using quality materials, you can actually create some stunning looks for any room in the house. Pinterest has some great ideas on how to make them work, so you can really send your decor out of this world.
