40% of American adults say they don’t get enough sleep. There may be any number of reasons for this, but one thing’s for certain: having a well-designed bedroom can help encourage and improve sleep quality. Your home’s master bedroom should be your peaceful haven and a place where you can take a cat nap or hunker down for some serious beauty sleep.
Waking up in a bedroom that’s quiet, lets in just the right amount of light, and is aesthetically pleasing can definitely help you start the day on the right foot. Here are some ways you can ensure your bedroom is doing everything it can to enable you to sleep well.
Consider Sound Proofing
Outside noises, whether from inside our home or on the exterior, can easily disrupt sleep. Consider looking into soundproofing design options for your bedroom that will help dampen noise levels. An interior decorator can make recommendations on everything from specially designed wall panels and doors to accessories that can help make the room more peaceful.
Lighting Makes a Difference
It’s important that your bedroom lets in light at the right times to gently rouse you from sleep. It also shields it from exterior light to help you fall asleep at night. Your interior decorator can work with you on choosing window treatments. Room darkening curtains and shades will ensure no bright light can seep into your bedroom to wake you. Blackout blinds are one way to create a calm and relaxing bedroom.
You may also want to add custom window treatments to enhance the level of light the room receives. And even though you don’t want any outside light invading the room at night, you do want interior lighting for reading or getting dressed.
Choose a Quality Mattress and Bedding
One thing you should splurge on when redesigning your bedroom is a good mattress and bedding that feels comfortable to sleep in. These two necessities are just as important as the bed itself. A quality mattress can transform how your body feels upon waking in the morning. Check out this mattress buying guide for help choosing a mattress that’s a match for your needs.
Remove Unnecessary Clutter
Your bedroom should be devoid of electronics and mobile devices that can emit blue light, making it more difficult to fall asleep. You may want your bedroom to be a personal space that is separate from entertainment; thus, you may want to consider removing your TV set from the room to make it feel more romantic.
The bedroom should contain minimal furniture such as nightstands, a cozy chair, mirror, and wardrobe in addition to your bed.
