Design for Better Sleep
With all life’s stress and responsibilities, a good quality sleep is usually sacrificed, while this room is your own personal space, is also should be the most soothing and relaxing space in your home, and although it might be holding multi functional purposes, your top priority should be to encourage deep sleep.
Invest in a good quality mattress and pillows.
it is obvious and everyone knows this but it still needs to be said, choose a mattress that is right for you, some stores offer a 60 or less day trial for mattresses don’t be afraid to use it, try it out at the store as if you are at home, If you are a light sleeper and share your bed, make sure it absorbs as much movement as possible.
Use pastel soft colours
bold colours and strong hues bring tension and discomfort, and although they might be wanted in other situations try to avoid them in a bedroom, where it is preferable for everything to be soothing, If you’re painting your room, choose low or zero VOC paints to create a healthier sleeping environment.
Use natural materials and add plants
integrating nature can help benefit from it’s purifying and calming nature, using rough wooden materials and adding plants, if you add plants that add aroma like lavender, bergamot, or chamomile, would enhance your sleep.
Add Dark Curtains
our mind and body’s natural circadian rhythm lean towards following dark-light cycle. Therefore, the amount of light in your bedroom will affect your sleep, our modern lifestyle, city lights, and exposure to screens, can definitely affect deep sleep patterns, so in order to avoid sleep deprivation or enhance the quality of sleep use dark curtains or black out curtain.
there is no question that clear clean empty surfaces can bring relaxing and satisfied feelings in the opposite of cluttered environment where it would cause anxiety, use several storing options in order to be able to clean up easily and don’t use too much decorative items that will only need more dusting and cleaning.
