Did you know that the way you decorate your bedroom can affect the quality of your sleep? And yes, there are some ways of arranging your bedroom that would help you sleep better.
What should you include, change, and adapt in your bedroom for optimal sleep? Here are some layout suggestions that will make all the difference!
Paint your room with soft colors
The color doesn’t really matter, as long as it allows you to relax. Avoid bright colors that are too “aggressive” such as red, yellow, and orange.
The scent of lavender has enormous benefits for sleep. It smells like heaven and it’s good for your health. In addition, a diffuser is a magnificent decorative accessory for your bedroom!
Minimize the number of furniture
An overcrowded and messy bedroom will definitely not encourage peaceful sleep. To promote the quality of it, it is important that your decoration is uncluttered.
Start by eliminating unnecessary furniture; say goodbye to unnecessary bookshelves and shelves! Check bedroom essentials at Bedroomeo.com.
Make sure you have two light sources
Lighting in your bedroom is very important, and even if you sleep in the dark, it does impact the quality of your sleep.
Choose two different light sources: one for the whole of your room (like a large open window) and another more subdued near your bed, on a bedside table for example.
Ban electronic devices
I’m sure many of you sleep with your portable device very close to you (me first!). Even worse for restful sleep: watching TV in the bedroom or turning on the computer just before going to sleep.
The less distracted you are by electronic devices, the better you will sleep.
Choose good pillows
It’s important to have the perfect pillows to sleep well. This is an essential aspect that should not be neglected, which will transform the quality of your sleep!
Prioritize dark and opaque curtains
Make sure you have curtains in a dark color to keep out light. There are also opaque veils that can be placed on the curtains in order to plunge the room into total darkness.
Change the arrangement of the furniture
If you’ve tried everything to improve your sleep and nothing works, I strongly advise you to move the furniture around.
Moreover, according to the principles of Feng Shui, one should sleep with the head pointing north or east. And since you don’t always have a compass at home, you have to do several tests to finally find serenity!
Choose a good mattress
A great mattress will drastically improve your sleep and therefore improve your general health. You spend hours every day on your mattress, so buying a quality one needs to be your high priority.
Keep it quiet
Rugs are very good at reducing noise, especially if your partner wakes up at night to go to the bathroom. You should select plush materials such as faux fur, wool, shag, chenille ir silk. If eliminating noise is your priority, get upholstered furniture.
Your bedroom should be a perfect Zen place. You want to relax there, take time for yourself, to rest before the day or at the end of it. Add greenery, free up space, open windows, incorporate soft colors into your calm and zen bedroom.
