Did you know your external space affects what's happening in your mind? Whether you are able to rest at night is partially determined by the space you are in. Keep your bedroom clean, uncluttered, and full of beauty! There is no doubt that the bedroom is one of the most important rooms in every house. This is the place where you sleep, which means a place to settle down and rest from the rigors of the day past as well as recharge for the next day. Doing both of these tasks well is exceptionally important for your physical and mental health. That is why getting your bedroom “right” should be a top priority for you.
Let’s discuss a few easy ways that you and your interior designer can perfect your ideal bedroom. It is easier than you may fear!
#1 Overall décor theme Your bedroom is all about you! Just because you sleep here doesn’t mean it needs to be bland and boring. In fact, the opposite is true! This is the place where you can unleash your creativity and leave a personal mark when it comes to designing. This is an area where guests usually don’t enter, so you don’t have to worry about their opinions. You can choose colors that soothe you and materials that feel good on your skin. This is a strictly personal choice, so it is perfectly fine if you like things that are currently not very popular. The most important thing is to be satisfied. You want a feeling of peace, serenity, and Zen when you walk into the room. If you achieve this, you’re already getting ready for sleep the moment you walk into the room!
#2 The right bed for you If your bedroom was a car, your bed would be the engine. It’s the most important aspect of your bedroom. If your best isn’t right, the whole room isn’t right. Your bed is more than a stylish addition that fits into your overall decor; this is the place where you will sleep every night. In order to make the right choice, you must think about:
- The linens- Your skin touches your sheets, pillow case, and other linens all night long. If you’re getting enough rest this means about eight hours. That is a lot of direct skin on bedding time! Make sure your chosen luxury linens and other bedding essentials are breathable and soft. Organic cotton, silk, and sateen are all great options.
- The mattress- Without the right mattress, you don’t have the right bed. It’s just that easy! Choosing a high-quality mattress made from top-tier materials is crucial if you want a positive, restful experience. PranaSleep luxury mattresses feature varying densities of our proprietary blend of Talalay latex foam- providing core and comfort layers with firm, yet supple support that are uniquely comforting and conforming to your body’s individual curves. That’s not all. Our mattresses also feature other luxurious materials to enhance every aspect of your sleep experience. For instance, our Om Collection features natural silk, wool, and cashmere, as well as a core and comfort layers composed of this 100% natural Talalay latex.
- The pillows- Your pillow serves a very important purpose. It supports your head and neck throughout the night, ensuring that you can wake up without neck pain or stiffness. There are many different types of pillows, from sizes to materials to shapes. You want a luxury pillow made from the finest materials. Finding one that offers your head and neck support should be your top priority.
- The style of the bed- Here is where you can get a little creative. Make this decision with your bedroom’s overall style in mind. For example, those interested in having a classic bedroom should look for a bed with a wooden frame and headboard. Other trendy options right now include four-poster beds, metal options, and soft fabric headboards.
#3 Other pieces of furniture Your bed is not the only furniture you need in your bedroom. The key for placing other pieces of furniture into the room is keeping spaciousness in mind! A cluttered bedroom is a cluttered mind, and one not ready to ease into a night of restorative bliss. You’ll probably want a dresser, a night stand, and another piece or two. Perhaps a comfortable, oversized chair or a writing desk. When selecting additional furniture, it is crucial to think about the things you use in your bedroom. The point is to avoid clutter in this area because this is the place where you come to relax and sleep. For this reason, it’s also a good idea to look for furniture that can save you some space. There are beds with storage drawers built right into the bedframe. You may choose a tall chest of drawers over a more horizontal dresser that takes up additional square footage on the floor.
#4 Lighting Your bedroom’s lighting should be a key focus. If you are ever able to completely design your own home from the blueprints to construction, you’d want to make sure your bedroom has as much natural lighting as possible. Research has proven that there are real benefits associated with spending time in indoor spaces that offer abundant natural light. Getting your light levels right is key to maintaining a healthy, natural circadian rhythm. Your bedroom should have the perfect balance of natural and artificial light, both able to be used at the right times. Ensure sunlight is able to enter the room through the windows throughout the day. At night, you’ll want to ensure that your room is as dark as possible, so you may want to put up blackout blinds and heavy curtains. In a dark, cool room you’ll be able to drift off with ease. In terms of artificial light, it’s a good idea to get a bedside lamp for reading, pre-bedtime yoga, and other relaxing activities.
Your health and overall wellness should be a top priority. There are few things more important to your health than getting a good night’s sleep! Giving yourself a chance to regenerate and repair is accomplished by getting a solid seven to eight hours a night. It can make all the difference in how you experience the next day, as well as the health you experience for a lifetime.
If you can make yourself feel calm, safe, and relaxed, sleep feels like the logical next step. One of the most common obstacles between you and a restful night is not having the right environment to sleep in. These four tips will help you with that. It really is that easy!
