The bedroom can serve various purposes for one's everyday life. For some, the bedroom also acts as an office, library and laundry room, but in the end, it is still a sanctuary for sleep. While you can't build more hours into your day, you can redesign and style your bedroom to improve your chances of getting a restful night's sleep. Your bedroom should be the most luxurious and personal space in your home – an oasis that conducts relaxation and comfort – so here are some tips on how you can style your bedroom for better sleep.
1. Get a new mattress
A good night's rest may be as simple as getting a new mattress. If your mattress is too lumpy, hard or soft it will keep you up all night trying to get comfortable. There are many types of mattresses in the market, such as pillow, foam, adjustable, airbeds and more. Each type of bed has manufacturers who guarantee comfort and better sleep. Do your research and test out each mattress before deciding which one will suit you best.
2. Repaint in soothing colors
Bright and vibrant colors can be fun, but it's best not to use them in a bedroom. Colors such as blues, green and pastels all provide us with the peaceful, calming atmosphere needed to create your oasis. By using these colors in your bedroom, you can create the environment necessary to feel more relaxed and will, ultimately, provide a better night of rest.
3. Darken your room
Studies have been conducted which prove that our body's natural circadian rhythm follows a dark-light cycle. Therefore, the amount of light in your bedroom will affect your sleep. To reduce the amount of light in your bedroom consider using blackout curtains, putting phones in a drawer, using armoires to hide your bedroom TV and storing away any other light-emitting items you have in your bedroom.
4. Choose proper bedding
You spend a third of your life in your bed, which means it's just as important to pick bedding that best suits you. If you're a hot sleeper, you will want to choose bedding that allows your body to breathe at night. Or, if you find the idea of white bedding relaxing and comforting you might want to choose white bedding to find the relaxation and comfort you crave. Whatever your preferences, take the time to invest in the type of bedding that provides the best night's sleep for you.
