The bedroom should be the most relaxing room in the house; it’s where you’ll go to relax, recuperate, and sleep, so it’s important that the environment feels as calm and serene as possible. Family life and kids can cause (happy) chaos in the rest of the home, so, surely it’s time to up your bedroom game a little? It’s the perfect time too; there’s nothing cosier than a dreamy escape during the winter months. The following are some ideas for busy parents who are ready to improve their sleep quality but improving their bedroom (no kids allowed, apart from weekend mornings).
Calming Colours And Cosy Comforts
Bright orange and black stripes might be your preference when it comes to an interior colour palette; however, it might be best to leave to leave the louder shades to your living spaces, and out of your bedroom. To maintain a feeling of relaxation in a room; softer, neutral colours are a calmer addition to the curtains and blinds, walls, floor, and bed linen. Soft pastel shades and earthy neutral hues are serene color choices, and you can’t go wrong with crisp white walls, or lighter shades of blue. You want the surrounding environment to help take away any stresses of the day, like a long warm bath would, and help you to get a good night’s sleep.
Soft and cosy comfort is essential in a bedroom environment, so it’s worth investing in mattresses, beds, and bed linen that will last, and be a joy to relax in. When picking the linen and textiles that will go in your bedroom, bear in mind the colours, as talked about before, and keep them in softer neutral shades; there’s nothing better than falling into crisp, clean sheets at the end of a long day. For mattresses, you want to invest in something that will have longevity, and give you comfort and support each night, there are a variety of options available, and you could look online or in the January sales, for some ideas on what might suit you.
Little Things That Make A Big Difference
If the bedroom is a place you are going to unwind and sleep at the end of each day, then TVs and radios have no place in there. It might be difficult if you’re used to watching movies in bed; however, removing anything that will cause noise and blue light, will prevent unnecessary stimulation to your mind, ensuring your bedroom is the place you can switch off. A large TV screen and all its wires can also ruin the ambience you worked hard to create with your color scheme, so it’s worth getting rid of it, and keep the room soft, calm, and inviting. Just because your bedroom is a quiet and serene place to rest in, doesn’t mean it has to become devoid of your personality and style.
Artwork and memorable photos are a great way to add personal touches, and if they’re enjoyable items to view, they will help you feel happy and relaxed before you sleep. Scented candles can add to the rooms relaxing vibes, and the flicker of candlelight can be a calming addition to any space. Try and keep any lighting as warm as possible, as it can be difficult to wind down in a bright, harsh, and cool light. Bedside lamps that give a warm glow are a smart choice for a tranquil environment.
