Designing Your Bedroom For Maximum Slumber Points
The bedroom is the most important part of the home. It’s the place where should be able to get away from all the stresses of modern life and just be able to relax. In this blog, we take a look at some of the ways you can ensure that your bedroom is a calming, relaxing area where you can get your beauty sleep!
It’s the end of a long day and you’re ready to just drop into bed, close your eyes and float away to dreamland. But if you’ve got a messy or cluttered bedroom, then the chances are you’re going to be up all night. Having lots of clutter makes the room look small, messy and above all chaotic which won’t help your mood before bedtime. And the more furniture, clothes, magazines, books or ornaments you have dotted around, then the more dust gets trapped meaning you coughing and spluttering for hours and wake up more tired then when you went to bed.
Tidy away any mess you might have in your bedroom before heading to sleep. If you think you’ve got too much furniture then maybe it’s time for a downsize. Make your bedroom more efficient, and clear away some space to actually move around in and you’ll find going to bed a much more relaxing experience.
Different colours affect our moods. It may sound corny, but having bright reds and oranges in the bedroom can make you feel restless and energetic. Try using more calming, pastel colours. Pale blues and greens and creamy, misty white can have a much more calming effect and will help you to relax.
Use More Soft Furnishings
As humans we often find that touching soft things make us feel more relaxed and happy – stroking a pet for instance. By using soft furnishings in your bedroom you can make the room much more comfortable, and somewhere that you do want to flop down into at the end of the day.
Soft furnishings are also great at soundproofing a room. They soak up the noise that gets created from other rooms in the house or noises from outside. And lets face it, there’s nothing getting then getting cuddled up into bed with a cosy pillow under your head!
Use Subdued Lighting
Bright lights bring to mind a hospital ward, which aren’t usually the first places you think of before a good night’s sleep! Try to soften any harsh lighting with lampshades and smaller, slightly dimmer lights. And if you enjoy reading in bed, then a good side table lamp is a must but try not to make it too glaring.
By following these tips, you can help to make your bedroom a cosy corner of the house that is your perfect chill out space!
