To sleep well it is important to have a bedroom that strengthens this cause. To do so there are a few simple guidelines to improve your bedroom and thus improve your night’s rest. Follow these 7 steps:
1. Make your bedroom a single-purpose space.
A bedroom is not meant to be a multitasking room. They are solely for sleeping, resting, curling up with a good book and lovemaking. Stop using your boudoir as a home office space or workout area. Exclude these items to another part of your home and create a peaceful calm place in your bedroom.
2. Banish clutter.
This might be a more known bedroom problem and most of all sleep improver but make sure your bedroom is neat and clean. A buys cluttered bedroom creates a feeling of restlessness and this in turn makes it harder for people to relax and sleep well. If your room is clean and looks calm and tidy, you’ll be able to clear your head and relax! Still need a lot of stuff to be stored in the bedroom? There are enough storage boxes that help an uncluttered look such as under-bed storage for example.
3. Remove dust.
Dust can be a real problem when it comes to resting, it can trigger all kinds of allergies and can prevent you from sleeping. Make sure you regularly clean your bedroom to prevent dust to settle and make sure you breathe in clean and healthy air at night.
4. Use the right curtains
Every presence of light in your bedroom can alter your natural sleep patterns. By creating a complete dark bedroom you’ll notice your sleep will be deeper and more rejuvenating when you wake up!
5. Not unimportant – Find the right mattress.
Make sure to do your research when buying a new mattress. The ideal mattress should suit your personal needs. You should consider preferred sleeping positions, sleep habits, weight etc. when buying a new mattress. Everyone is different and therefor every person has different needs when it comes to a new mattress. When you go mattress shopping make sure you dress comfortably and wear easy-to-slip-off footwear so you can spend time sprawling out and testing the mattresses
6. Get the right pillow
Might seem like a small adjustment but a pillow can change a lot about your sleep. As stated about the mattress the pillow also can greatly improve your night’s rest and eliminate midnight tossing and turning. You sleep the best when the muscles in your head and neck are most relaxed. When sleeping on your sides your neck needs more support for example from a high pillow. But when you’re a stomach sleeper you’ll prefer a low pillow.
7. Set the mood.
When all the clutter is banished and your mattress and pillows are perfect you can turn the focus on decorating the bedroom. You can change the color of the walls for example, but make sure you choose a relaxing color palette. Do not choose bright or busy patterns!
