Asking parents for more sleep is a common response. Most parents feel they don’t get enough sleep. Especially when their children are small if they are juggling jobs and family. While we can’t add extra hours to the day, we can make our bedrooms the perfect spot to unwind.

Our rooms are often disregarded. We invest a lot of effort and money in our family rooms. So are our kitchens, and our lounges are pleasant and child-safe. The kids’ rooms are bright and inviting, ideal for play and imagination. But our bedrooms appear trivial. We just sleep in them, and guests rarely peek inside. A mistake, however.

Contrary to popular belief, décor can help you achieve a good night’s sleep. Uncomfortable and cluttered rooms can keep you awake at night. So you may wake up feeling uneasy, weary, and achy. Instead, create a space where you may relax, unwind, and drift off to sleep. While busy parents can’t always get the quantity of sleep they desire, they may take steps to ensure that the sleep they do get is restful and rejuvenating.

The Bed 

The bed is the focal point of your bedroom, so start there when designing a tranquil space. Divan bases are great for comfort and storage. Then a firm mattress that supports your back and neck. Finish your bed with luxurious bedding in soothing shades of blue and purple. Avoid bold prints and patterns, as they may keep you awake.

While the comfort of your bed is important, so is its position. Unbelievably, your bed should be the focal point of the room. Place it in front of your bedroom door, so it greets you as you enter and puts you in the mood to sleep and rest. As well as using a chest of drawers, your bed can also double up as storage. 

De-Muddle

A messy and untidy room will never help you sleep. A cluttered mind might result from a messy room. Clutter can also make a room feel smaller and create tripping hazards while going around at night.

So, before changing your décor, clear your room. Your bedroom should have a bed, clothing storage, a dressing table, and sometimes a reading or relaxing chair. You don’t need more. So, remove everything else, then make sure what’s left has a nice home.

Stylish Flooring

Remember your flooring; they are more vital than you realize. Your flooring should be soft and cozy. This can help you relax and wind down. Walking on a cold, hard floor before bedtime might wake you up and make it difficult to relax. If you prefer a wooden floor, add some soft rugs near your bed and think about underfloor heating for extra comfort.

Lighting

The same goes with lighting. You can feel alert and bright if you enter a bright room before bedtime. This is fantastic for the morning, but not for sleep. A comfortable bedroom needs options. Enjoy reading or relaxing in your room without turning on the glaring overhead lights. Lighting can set the ambiance for a room, from bright and energetic to calm and romantic. A dimmer switch on your main light might help you wake up or sleep gradually. You can also use candles or lanterns.

Better sleep can help you feel more alert and focused the next day, keep you healthier, and improve your mood. So, a few little tweaks are worthwhile.
