Your romantic candlelit dinner is booked and your roses and chocolates are on the way. But when it comes to your bedroom, Labexperiment has put together some sensuous suggestions for making your room more inviting for your valentine.

Light the Way
To set the right mood, you'll need the right lighting for some soft ambiance. A glaring overhead light is a big buzz kill, so make sure you have soft light coming from lower points in the room—dimmed bedside lamps or candles are perfect.

Feast for the Senses
Address a variety of senses to make the whole experience more enveloping. Light a single scented candle or incense (not too much!) or spritz a soft room spray, like a Voluspa Candle or our favorite Hinoki Mist. Incorporate different tactile textures by bringing in smooth velvet, soft lambswool or fuzzy mohair...just make sure to stay away from that scratchy wool! Turn on soft music, and keep the visual focus where you want it—on the bed, not on a pile of laundry or a TV.

Mess it Up
Forget your years of practice making that quarter bounce off your tightly made bed. Now is the time to mess it up. The last thing you want to do when tumbling into bed on Valentine's Day is to stop and untuck the sheets and take off all 20 decorative pillows. So leave those accessories off and pull back the covers just enough to show that it's ready for action.

Or are you in a bad relationship with your home? Is your apartment not fulfilling your most fundamental needs? Perhaps it's time to make your next move.
If you've been thinking about buying a home, now could be your time. Spring is the season when inventory is at its peak. Prices are creeping up, and so are interest rates.
