Imagine a perfectly organized room ideal for a luxurious, relaxing slumber; a room where everything from the scent in the room air to the carefully selected bed linen stimulates calm and relaxation. If you already have blackout curtains, check out these 10 useful tips on how to decorate your bedroom and get a better night’s sleep. Have fun!
Opt for bedside tables with drawers or doors
A bedside table with drawers or doors next to your bed reduces the visual clutter in the room. Keep your books, magazines, reading glasses, cosmetics and other accessories there.
Decoration on the bedside table
Keep your bedside table simple and neat. Just leave a few beautiful things on it that please the eye:
A small vase of fresh flowers
The book you are currently reading
Tealight with a calming scent, e.g. lavender
An elegant tea cup or carafe with fresh water
Comfort should be your first priority
Avoid bedding with lots of ornamentation. When choosing your bed linen, make sure that you only buy soft textiles. Maybe you prefer comfortable cotton sheets, right?
Choose the right bedding
You always choose breathable fabrics made from natural fibers. With the synthetic bedding, your skin will not be able to breathe properly and you will sweat all night, which is sure to bother your sheep. Don’t let the price seduce you, just trust your fingers – always touch the textiles before buying.
Try a little ritual of falling asleep
Make yourself a cup of chamomile tea with honey
Read pleasant reading such as poetry or inspiring prose
Dim the lights for at least 1 hour. Before falling asleep, you can light a fragrant candle
Take a soothing bath with lavender or rose oil
Flavor your pillows and bed linen with lavender spray
Listen to nice relaxing music in the evening before you fall asleep
A carpet in the bedroom – yes or no?
Soft carpets are very comfortable for your feet, especially in winter or when you take your first step in the morning. But if you are sensitive or allergic to dust, it is better to avoid the carpet in the bedroom. For a good night’s sleep, you need to breathe calmly instead of experiencing allergic reactions at night.
Think about whether the TV is necessary in the room
Screens emit blue light, which can disturb you as you fall asleep. It is better to do without the television and other electronic devices in the bedroom. And before you go to bed, read a book (a paper book, not an e-book).
Use baskets and wall hooks
Store your laundry, accessories and spare bedding in convenient baskets and bins. The shelves in the bedroom will look very neat if you keep your jewelry and makeup in small boxes. You can hang your necklaces and other jewelry on wall hooks behind the door.
Find the right place for the clothing you are wearing
Try starting today to change the bad habit of throwing your worn clothes on a chair in the bedroom and forgetting there for a while. Designate a shelf in the closet for it or use a basket just for this purpose.
Purify the air in the room
Regardless of whether you have allergies or none, it is always better to have clean air in the bedroom
Put one or two houseplants in the bedroom (the rubber tree purifies the air particularly effectively)
Designate the bedroom as a shoe-free zone
Clean your bedroom once a week or more often if you have allergies
Ventilate the room for at least 30 minutes in the morning
