If you can only decorate one bedroom in the house, what would it be? Your answer should be your bedroom because this is the room most responsible for your sanity. Your bedroom should be your sanctuary. It’s the one room in the house where you should be able to relax and destress.
But if your bedroom is cluttered and messy and does not have the right vibe, you aren’t going to get the most productive sleep. And as a result, you’ll wake up tired and cranky. These are not the best attitudes in the morning when you’re about to take on another stressful day at work.
The thing about the bedroom is that it’s a personal space that you can decorate according to your whim. You only need staining rags and a few other materials to repaint or restain the walls in a darker color, for example. Changing the light bulbs will give your room a warmer glow that’s perfect for a good night’s sleep. These are some basic things you can do, but here’s how to get that relaxing space you’re aiming for:
Blackout Curtains and Drapes
How much light is entering your bedroom in the morning? If it often wakes you up, you should install a blackout curtain or drape. This is a simple and cost-effective method to block the sun from streaming on your face in the morning. You can keep the room as dark as you want it to be when you’re sleeping.
Get a warm white light for the bedroom. In the morning, you’ll want bright lights to perk you up for the day ahead. But in the evening, after working straight for 10 hours, you just want to lie down and relax. This isn’t possible with the same bright light you used while dressing up for work. In the evening, use warm lights for that spa-like vibe in your bedroom. You can even get a device that will allow you to control the lights through an app on your phone.
There are at least six types of mattresses: pillow, innerspring, airbed, foam, waterbeds, and adjustable. Find the best one for you by testing it or simply lying down on it at the showroom. Most mattresses have a 30-day moneyback guarantee, so you can try it out for a month before deciding if it is for you. Sometimes, a good mattress is the key to a good night’s sleep. If you can’t be comfortable in your bed, you’re going to have a restless night.
A bedroom that’s great for sleeping has a darker hue for its walls. You can either paint the walls or plaster on the wallpaper. This will help create a calming atmosphere for the bedroom. Have you tried to sleep in a bedroom with dark walls? It has a cocoon-like warmth that will contribute to your good night’s sleep.
Anyone who suffers from stress, anxiety, and insomnia needs to reassess how the bedroom could be contributing to their sleep problems. Although medication and a change in lifestyle might be required, a change in the bedroom’s decoration will also be beneficial. So take a look at your bedroom and start imagining what you need to redecorate.
