Sleep-Friendly Space: 5 Proven Bedroom Design Tips

A good night’s sleep is a luxury that money cannot buy. The desire for a peaceful slumber for many of us, remains elusive. There are no clear-cut answers to the secret to a good night’s sleep.

From the homeowner’s point of view, the question is rephrased but the core problem remains the same: how do you furnish your bedroom to ensure a good night’s sleep? Our experts at Chattels & More, share five proven bedroom design tips to help you sleep better at night.

Choose Cool Colors

Instead of vibrant colors in the bedroom, we advise choosing lighter shades that create an atmosphere of tranquility. Opt for muted tones such as light blues, soft grays or tranquil greens. Not only are they soothing to the eye, but they also help you relax better as these shades often resemble the colors we find in nature.

This advice also applies to your furniture and bedding. Use side tables and night-stands with lighter colors. Ensure that your bed and linen also feature cooler tones that seamlessly blend in with the rest of the bedroom.

Declutter Your Space

An organized space is a metaphor for an organized mind. Clutter isn’t just an eye-sore, but takes an invisible toll on one’s well-being. To foster a calm sleeping environment, ensure that your bedroom is arranged in a minimalist manner.

Start by sorting out and organizing your belongings. Keep all essential items, but discard anything that takes up space without adding value. To safeguard your cherished items, we recommend smart storage solutions such as our universal storage drawer units.

Remember: the living room is your palace, where extravagance is appropriate. However, the bedroom is your sanctuary. An uncluttered bedroom creates a relaxed mind, which is the precursor to falling asleep easily.

Dim the Lights

Lighting plays a pivotal role in dictating your sleep cycle. Excessive exposure to bright lights before bedtime disrupts your natural circadian rhythm.

To ensure a good night’s sleep, transition to soft, warm lighting in the evening. Choose minimalist floor lamps and table lamps and use energy-efficient LED bulbs that emit ambient, warm light. It’s also a good idea to invest in blackout curtains to block out any light that may wake you up too early.

A cool room

There are plenty of benefits to keeping your bedroom cold. A cooler room encourages your body to produce melatonin, which is both a sleep-promoting and anti-aging hormone.

A cool room also signals your body to relax. It also comes with a range of health benefits, such as decreased risk of insomnia, dementia and stress-related disorders. Aim for a minimum temperature of 22°C in the bedroom to see best results.

Quality bedding

The foundation of a good night’s sleep lies in your choice of mattress, pillow and bedding. Choose breathable fabrics that regulate temperature and prevent you from waking up in a sweat.

If you have allergies, choose a hypoallergenic mattress to ensure undisturbed sleep free of irritations. While aesthetics still do matter, prioritize your comfort and health in the bedroom.
