The main purpose of every bedroom is sleep. A bedroom is often a personal space, particularly for children and teenagers, who use it to show their interests and hobbies. But no matter how personal to you it is, how you choose to decorate your bedroom has a strong influence on how well you sleep. If you are not getting a good night’s sleep, take a look around you and see what you could change.
Your bedroom may be your own personal space, but everything needs its own place. You might want to reconsider some of the things that are making a home in your bedroom. You can still reflect your wonderful interests and personality in the artwork you choose to hang on your wall, but some things might be better kept in a different room. When your room is a mess with an abundance of clutter, it affects your mind too. If you really can’t get rid of anything, or move it elsewhere, try improving your storage system. Choosing furniture with adequate storage room, means that you can organise your belongings and keep your room – and mind – clutter free.
The style and colour of your room is also an important factor on your mood, which can strongly influence your sleep. Studies suggest that the best colour for sleep is blue, but soft greys and neutrals can work too. So, if you ever needed an excuse to re-decorate your bedroom, this is a perfect one. Ultimately, your bedroom should promote feelings of relaxation, calmness and comfort. Sleep is an important part of good health, so you should make an effort to make sure your bedroom is decorated effectively, to ensure you get the best night’s sleep as possible.
The most important piece of furniture in your bedroom, is of course, the bed. A nice coat of pale blue paint on your walls and some good storage solutions to keep away your clutter are a great start, but ultimately, sleep starts with the bed. Most good bed companies offer help in finding you the right mattress, whether that’s a hard one or a soft one, springy or memory foam. If replacing your bed or mattress isn’t affordable right now, try starting with something a little less expensive. Mattress toppers can help add a little more comfort to an old and tired mattress, and mattress protectors also add benefits like allergy protection. A new pillow or duvet can also make a huge difference, as there are so many different kinds to choose from.
An easy way to improve both the design and comfort of your bed, is to get new bedding. Changing your bedding is the easiest way to re-vamp your bedroom, but different types of bedding can also affect sleep because they come in different fabrics, which all have different qualities. Threel offers 100% cotton bedding, as well as cotton sateen and bamboo. Bamboo bedding offers great benefits as it is hypoallergenic and has a silky-soft texture, so it’s practical and comfortable too.
You shouldn’t have to sacrifice style or comfort for a good night’s sleep. In fact, a well-designed bedroom could be the perfect way to getting a wonderful sleep!
