Small Interior Changes To Your Bedroom Can Do Wonders For Your Sleep

As you man know, we have been making some big changes in our household and spending the last few months turning our house into a home. Although we have minimal scheme throughout and the majority of the decorating is completed, it still feels as if some rooms lack finishing touches. Our bedroom is the main focus for us at the moment as we both want to create a space that oozes tranquility and calmness, but also create a space that we feel comfortable, relaxed in to help get a good night's sleep. Are you getting enough sleep at night? If you do manage to drift off into a slumber is the quality of that sleep as good as it should be? I don't know about you, but night time is the worst part of the day and getting to sleep has become something that I dread. I always have a good intention when I go to bed, but then as soon as my head hits that pillow I'm wide awake. Small changes in your bedroom can do wonders for your sleep.

1// A Good Mattress is the Essential. 

A good night's rest may be as simple as getting a new mattress. If your mattress is too lumpy, hard, or soft, it will keep you up all night trying to get comfortable. Both my husband and I have different needs when it comes to sleep and a mattress so it can be difficult to get a good balance. There are many different types of mattresses, such as foam, spring, adjustable, waterbeds, and even an airbeds. I have wanted to get a new bed and mattress for some time as ours is far too hard for me, I prefer a softer feel. Have you ever thought about all the things you need to consider when buying a mattress? We spend a third of our lives sleeping and yet the perfect mattress is easily overlooked. Where we sleep determines how we sleep, and not all mattresses are created equal. And I have to say when it comes to choosing a new bed and mattress there is a lot that I haven't consider before. Being the biggest independent retailer in Scotland, Archers Sleep Centre know a thing or two about mattresses and all the different types, materials, fillings and even consider your physical needs too. So for us we would need to get a bed that is long enough for my husband, but is comfortable enough for the both of us.

2// It's a Sheet Thing.

I don't know about you, but the best way to end any day is getting into fresh bed sheets. Have you ever noticed you tend to sleep better? But did you know that buying brand new bed sheets every two years can do amazing things for your sleep. I did not! So I have been making several changes and made lots of new bedding purchases. But as a standard you should be changing your bedding once a week. Besides collecting dust, your bedding also gets a fair share of sweat and dead skin cells. Sorry for too much information, but you really need to know these things. So fresh new bedding improve your personal hygiene and sleep, and who doesn’t love the feeling of climbing into a freshly made bed with clean sheets? When choosing your sheets always go for a cotton material as they are cool and lightweight, with natural fibres making it breathable. It's also machine washable. These are our favourites.  

3// A Colour Can Change An Atmosphere.

Believe it or not but the colour of a room can actually have an effect with sleep. Colour has a powerful effect on our mood, and our mood in turn affects our ability to sleep. And no one wants bad sleep. If you’re trying to create a serene space, opt for a muted blue, which is considered the most calming shade. Keep the colours simple; go dark, go light but never use bright colours. Often colours such a bright red, orange or bright pink can often increase brain activity preventing you from switching off at night. Personally we always go for dusty tones, our room colour is duck egg, silver and cream. The perfect colours for a good night's sleep. 

4// Plants Look Good, But They Are Also Great For Your Health. 

Yes, adding a few plant to your bedroom decor can do wonders for your sleep. I know right? We have a few plants around our home so it does make complete sense to add some into our bedroom. An array of greenery throughout the home gives your home an instant botanical feel and make you think of embracing the outdoors. Plants in the home has become one of the biggest design trends over the past few years. People crave bringing a bit of the outside in, from big statement furn trees to tiny succulents and even arrangements of herbs in a kitchen window sill. In your own home plants can be arranged and clustered or spread out throughout rooms. Not only do they look nice and add a pop of colour, but they also help purify the air and can make you happier. The best plants to put in your room are Jasmine, Snake Plant, Lavender, Peach Lily, and Aloe Vera. 

Relaxing yet functional, the bedroom is our happy place. It’s the place you retire to after a busy day to unwind and relax, and for the parents out there, it may be the one place to have a quiet moment to yourself. So, shouldn’t our bedrooms be the ultimate luxury relax, recuperate and get a good night's sleep. By make a few changes to your bedroom can make all the difference to anyones lifestyle and more importantly their sleeping pattern. Do you have any ways to help you sleep better at night?
