How You Can Design Your Bedroom for Better Sleep*

Your bedroom can serve many purposes as it works as a pretty multifunctional room. It could double up as a nursery, an office, playroom, or laundry room. But in the end, what it really gets most use is from being a place where you sleep. And as a result, because getting a good night’s sleep is so important, it makes sense to have a bedroom that is calming, relaxing, luxurious, and cosy, so that you can really use it for the intended purpose and sleep well in it.

There is more to life than just getting a comfy bed in order to get a good night’s sleep in your bedroom, though. There are several different factors that all play a part in it. So here are some tips and ideas to help you to create a space where you’ll find it easier to relax, unwind, and above all, sleep.




Temperature

Being able to sleep well can be a result of the room being the right temperature. Do you remember in the summer when there was a massive heat wave and it was warm for weeks on end? That just isn’t comfortable for many of us and as a result, many of us would have broken sleep. So make sure that the room is the right temperature for your needs. People will prefer different things, so just make sure that you’ve got layers if the weather is cold outside, or that you’ve got a fan or think sheets if the weather is warm outside.

Mattress Perfect For You

You could have a large sleigh-style bed with rattan headboards and still not be able to sleep all that well. That is because the mattress is the pièce de résistance when it comes to your bedroom and sleeping. For starters, when was the last time that you got a new mattress? Really, unless something happens to it, you should replace it around every seven years. So if you can’t even remember when you bought it, then it could be time for a new one. Then the important thing to check is that you are getting the right sized mattress for what you need, and that you are able to try the mattress out. Check that it is comfortable for you and not too firm or equally, not too soft.

Dim the Lights

When you’re in the bedroom for other reasons, you will need to have some lighting to see, especially if you’re there at night. But when it comes to sleep, you really need to embrace the dark side! The amount of light that we have in a room can impact our sleep as our bodies adapt to the amount of light that we see. If the room is lit up or a tablet screen is shining in our eyes, then it can negatively impact us and our sleep. So instead, think about things like black out blinds and removing devices from the room. When the room is dark and calm we will sleep better.
