You feel exhausted, but you can’t shut off your mind. So instead, you toss and turn, trying to find a comfortable position, thinking about tomorrow’s to-do list. It can sometimes be hard enough to try and fall asleep, but your bedroom itself may be part of the problem.
Getting a good night’s sleep is an important factor in a healthy lifestyle, and your bedroom may be disrupting your sleep in ways you hadn’t considered. So in this article will share with you 4 great bedroom design tips for maximizing comfort and sleep.
Put A Few Mattresses To The Test
Crashing on any old surface is something we did in college days, but you tend to regret it the next morning the older you get. A restful sleep starts with a good mattress and bedding. Some people prefer the firmness of traditional box springs, while others enjoy the luxury of a TempurPedic. Even putting down a foam mattress topper can do wonders for your comfort.
There are tons of mattress sets out there and lots of them to choose from, so we really recommend actually visiting a few mattress outlets and laying down on a few models to find your best fit.
Of course, the size of your bed is also a big consideration. If you’re a taller person and your feet dangle off the edge of the bed, or if you enjoy sprawling out your limbs like an octopus, you should definitely consider a larger bed size for a more comfortable sleep.
Hey, Who Turned Out The Lights?
The darker your bedroom, the easier it may be to sleep, and the better your sleep quality. Even when your eyes are closed, you can still perceive traces of light behind your eyelids. Even though it’s dark outside, light may impact the production of the sleeping hormone melatonin and your body’s internal clock.
For a truly restful sleep, try to get your room as dark as possible – like a sensory deprivation tank dark. For example, if you have a room with windows, put a piece of cardboard or another dark surface across them, as street lights can still penetrate your room.
Invest in blackout curtains or blackout shades so that you can sleep in a totally black room with no visual distractions. If you’re afraid of stubbing your toe in the middle of the night, get a dimmable wall light that you can quickly tap on and off.
Go With Earthy, Relaxing Color Schemes
A bedroom color scheme influences your emotions and routine in addition to lighting. It not only sets the environment for furniture and decorations, but it also affects your emotions and routine. However, soothing does not always indicate light; it may also mean vibrant and brilliant, moodier and contrasting, depending on your preferences.
Pink or white colors might serve if you want something simple and adaptable. Dark colors like emerald green, marine, and Soft Black, on the other hand, have a calming effect. If you want anything to give you extra energy in the morning, yellow and even red may work nicely in little doses.
Leave Your Electronics At The Door
You shouldn’t keep mobile phones, tablets, laptops, portable gaming consoles, or e-readers in your room for the same reasons you don’t need a TV or computer.
Your alarm clock’s position and position should be modified. Not only does the light detract from the digital display, but many people are constantly checking the clock and become concerned about losing sleep if it is late. Worrying about sleep loss can lead to worry and, as a result, even greater sleep loss.
Our modern lifestyles may cause us to be disturbed by our dark, calm resting environments. Digital clocks, TVs, cellphones, and laptops are examples of modern technology that may light your bedroom and interrupt REM sleep.
Cabinets for hiding TVs and computers, as well as open-faced vintage alarm clocks against glaring modern warning clocks, are two choices you may use in your bedroom. If you really must have a phone in your room, hide it in a side table drawer.
