Redesign Your Bedroom to Sleep Better Than Ever!

Tips to Redesign and Gain More Sleep

 

We spend a third of our lives in bed. We often spend some of this time tossing and turning. Even if we’re getting all eight hours of our beauty rest, that doesn’t mean we’re having the deep sleep our bodies need. If you’re suffering from poor sleep, have you ever thought your bedroom could be the culprit?

 

Proper sleep is one of the most important aspects we consider when designing a bedroom. Believe it or not, bedroom design has the power to make or break a good night’s rest. We’re sharing our best tips on how to design your bedroom in a way that promotes great sleep. Ready to get some shut-eye?

 

Cleanliness is Next to Sleepiness

A messy room can inhibit sleep in a number of ways. Dust collecting around the room can cause allergy flares and cause you to wake in the middle of the night. Clothes spread across the floor can cause anxiety, making it harder to fall asleep. Make sure your room is easy to clean from the start. This means having storage that is easy to get to and keeping items in the room to a minimum. We recently wrote about how to organize your closet to create a better bedroom, which has some helpful tips.

 

Make Your Bed

Nothing beats getting into a well-made bed at the end of the day. In order to make this process easier, you might want to forego a few of those decorative pillows. This is also a time when you should evaluate the quality of your bedding. Scratchy, uncomfortable sheets aren’t going to help you fall asleep. Invest in well-made, high-thread-count sheets and duvets.

Choose Relaxing Hues

Leave the bright colors for the common areas of your home. In the bedroom, we typically recommend going with one of two styles of color palettes. You can go dark and dramatic—think of a matte black or navy accent wall paired with neutral bedding. This will create a nice, dark place to sleep. Or, we can style a room in soft, relaxing neutrals that will make you feel relaxed as you read in bed and wake up in the morning. It’s up to you! For a lighter palette, we’re currently loving lavender and soft blues.

Move the Bed

We see many clients with smaller bedrooms who shove the bed into a corner. This is a major mistake! When placing your bed in the room, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, try to create symmetry. Especially for couples, a nightstand on either side will be necessary, so make sure there is enough room for one on each side of the bed. If you are hanging art, ensure that it is properly centered above the bed.

 

Next, you will need to determine if there are any factors surrounding your bed that could impact your sleep. For example, in a large master suite the bed should be on the opposite side of the room of the en suite bathroom. You don’t want your partner’s midnight flush to wake you!

 

Seek Your Favorite Scents

It may seem simple, but a room that smells like home sets the tone for great sleep. We recommend essential oils, particularly lavender!
