There are endless ways to decorate a bedroom, but the room should above all encourage relaxation and sleep. A good night’s sleep is an essential element of a healthy lifestyle.
Follow these 5 tips for an effective way to create a calm and relaxing environment in the bedroom.
1. Window Coverings
We recommend blackout shades for bedroom windows. Your body repairs itself while you sleep, and it needs darkness to do so effectively. There are many options for blackouts that filter enough light so you can wake up in the morning naturally to sunshine yet provide sufficient privacy during the day.
2. Calming Color Palette (Your Room Should Not Be Blood Red)
Many people prefer warm colors over cool ones, when it comes to the bedroom. Cooler hues are the better choice because of their calming effect. Blue, lilac and cool shades of gray promote rest, while warm tones can often be energizing and more likely to keep you up at night.
However, if your room has white, beige and light colors this can also produce a calming effect which makes sleeping a breeze.
3. Minimal Decor
Even though your eyes will be closed when you go to sleep, if you have too many distractions in your bedroom, it may be hard to actually fall asleep. This is has been hard for people working from home with COVID and after COVID. It is also hard for your body to shift from work mode to sleep mode if you have a desk piled up with things to do.
It’s wise to get rid of the clutter around your bed. Keeping your bedroom clear of distractions will help you clear your mind at the end of a long day.
4. Properly Positioned Bed
It’s great to position the bed so that it’s one of the first things you see when you walk into a room. Generally, it’s a great way to invite you into the space. However, if your windows overlook something that warrants it, consider flipping your bed so that it faces the view. Just make sure to purchase those blackout shades.
5. Safe Circulation With Properly Sized Furniture
Please ensure that you leave enough room around your bed so that you aren’t bumping your shins or stubbing your toes when getting in and out of it. Consider the actual dimensions of the bed frame when purchasing a mattress, not just whether it holds a twin, full, queen or king size.
Ensure your tables and all furniture
