Design a Bedroom For Better Sleep

We all need our beauty sleep! Getting enough shut-eye each night is essential for your health. Redesign your bedroom to help you relax and sleep soundly through the night.

How Vital is a Good Night’s Sleep?

Did you know that more than one-third of American adults don’t receive enough sleep? When your body lacks rest, the effects are more serious than just letting out a few yawns throughout the day.

Sleep deprivation can:

  • Cause mood changes
  • Lead to memory issues, forgetfulness, and trouble concentrating
  • Increase your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes
  • Cause you to gain weight

Design a Room For Better Sleep

When you designed your bedroom, did you consider its impact on your sleep? If you’re having trouble sleeping, a bedroom remodel can add charm, comfort, and increase your chances of sleeping tight all through the night.

Hang Blackout Curtains

You may not realize it, but even the smallest bit of light trickling into your room can wake you up. While we love bright and big windows during the day, we need to keep extra light out when it’s time to hit the hay.

Window treatments and blackout curtains control the amount of light you allow into your room. Shutters, shades, blinds, and curtains can all help you keep out extra light, noise, and prevent any temperature fluctuations throughout the night.

Install a Ceiling Fan

A big ceiling fan directly above your bed is perfect for a good night’s sleep. A ceiling fan is an excellent appliance during any season. In the summer, ceiling fans provide a wonderful breeze to help you stay cool while they push down warm air so you can stay warm and cozy all winter long.

As a bonus, ceiling fans sometimes create a light noise, which can help you when you’re trying to fall asleep. Staring at a fan can help you relax, making you fall asleep quicker. And with so many different styles and designs, picking out a new ceiling fan is more exciting than ever before.

Repaint Your Room

Is your room’s paint a bit loud for sleeping? Bright colors are nice to look at, but they can make you feel awake and energized (which is the opposite of how you want to feel in your bedroom).

Consider switching out your brightly colored walls for cool and soft tones. We recommend whites, greys, and soft blues, purples, and greens.

Declutter and Unplug

Is a messy room keeping you up at night? If you’re all-too-familiar with laying in bed and mentally noting all of the things you need to clean up around your room, then it’s time to declutter. Cleaning and organizing is a great way to release stress and help you feel more at ease, making for a great night’s sleep.

While we love our electronics, they have a time and a place. Keep them away from your bed so you don’t get caught on them in the late hours of the night. Blue light from iPads, phones, and laptops can keep you from falling asleep, so keep electronics as far away from your bed as possible.
