5 Interior Design Tips for the Best Night’s Sleep
Did you know the design and even orientation of your bedroom can have a huge effect on how well you sleep at night? Take a look at these 5 interior design tips to make sure you’re getting the best night’s sleep possible!
1. Bedding is Key
This might be the most obvious tip, but it still needs to be said. Having a comfortable mattress and nice bedding is essential for a good night’s sleep! Make sure your mattress supports your back and your pillows support your neck. If you are a light sleeper and share your bed, make sure it absorbs as much movement as possible.
Bonus tip: don’t forget a nice warm blanket at the end of your bed. This is not just for decoration; if you happen to wake up cold in the middle of the night, you won’t have to go far to fix the problem.
2. Keep it Clean
This is easier said than done, but having a clean room allows your mind to rest easy. This doesn’t just mean organized! Having a clean AND clutter free room improves the air quality in your bedroom and helps you relax at the end of the day leading to a much better nights sleep.
3. Dim the Lights
Having bright fluorescent lights in the bedroom makes it hard for your mind and eyes to relax before you go to bed. Choose light bulbs and light fixtures that are warm, mellow and best reflect natural lighting.
4. Control the Temperature
Nothing is worse than restlessness due to your bedroom being too hot or cold. The orientation of your room can actually help with temperature control! For example, if your windows aren’t the most insulating and it gets very cold at night, you shouldn’t put your bed directly underneath that window. If your room is very hot at night and you do not have air conditioning, keep your windows and bedroom door open to create a cross breeze and place your bed in between them so you are in the coolest part of the room.
5. Add Some Greenery
Adding plants to your room has been proven to improve sleep. Plants produce oxygen and filter the air you breath so your body doesn’t have to work as hard. Some plants even emit a calming aroma that can help you fall and stay asleep.
