Tips for Designing Your Bedroom for Better Sleep

Your bedroom is one of the most important rooms in your home, because it has such a large impact on your daily life.  A bedroom that creates a sensation of peace and harmony when you enter it will contribute to a better night’s sleep, which will help you to face your day feeling fresh and invigorated.  Here are some tips for designing a bedroom that will help you to get a great night’s sleep.

1.     Choose Calming Colors

Colors have a strong impact on our mood.  Some soothe and relax us, while others make us feel excited and awake. 

Designing your bedroom to take advantage of naturally calming colors can make you feel like you are entering an oasis of peace in your own home. 

Blues, greens, pastels, and neutral tones like sand and beige are good choices.

2.     Use Subtle, Diffused Lighting

Bright, harsh lights create exactly the kind of environment that you want to avoid in your bedroom. 

For a more romantic atmosphere, choose diffused up-lighting to brighten your room while reducing glare.  You can even consider accent lights with colored bulbs, or throwing a translucent scarf over a lamp shade to play with colors in your bedroom. 

Use task lighting such as a lamp on your nightstand for activities such as reading, which require more light.

3.     Surround Yourself with Sensual Fabrics

Above all, your bedroom should be a source of comfort and luxury.  When you sink down into your bed, your senses should be delighted with how your sheets and blankets feel against your skin.  To this end, surround yourself with fabrics that feel luxurious and sensual. 

Down comforters, high thread count cotton sheets, or a satin duvet cover can make a remarkable difference on your sleeping patterns.
