If you’re a busy parent, you’ll know all about the importance of sleep. The more rest that you can get, the better able you are to take on the challenges of the day.
Part of getting enough sleep is making your bedroom super cosy. But how do you do that? Let’s take a look.
Adjust Your Colour Palette
The colours you use in your bedroom have a profound influence on how cosy it feels. Bright, cool colours are really terrible for sleep, while dull, warmer colours are much better. Ideally, you want to provide a peaceful atmosphere that gets you in the mood to sleep the moment you step foot through the door. If you’re worried about neutral colours looking too boring, try mixing various patterns and textures together.
Add Warm Materials
You can also try adding warm and neutral materials in various places to boost the cosy factor even further. Try placing a throw over your bedroom chair or putting down a rug that goes underneath your bed. You can also add soft furnishings to your seating if you have an armchair in your bedroom.
Make It Super Dark
If you really want to make your bedroom suitable for sleeping, you need to make sure that it gets super dark at night. If you live in the middle of a major city, that’s easier said than done. However, getting blackout curtains can really help. Plus they block out some of the sound from the street.
Also, make your bedroom an electronics-free zone. Staring at a TV late at night reduces sleep quality and can make you feel more stressed during the daytime.
Light A Candle
The flickering light from a candle tends to be much more relaxing in the evening than a regular LED bulb. You can also get fragrance oils for candles that create a beautiful scent when you burn them at the same time.
Hang Fairy Lights
Fairy lights are a wonderful way to make your bedroom feel even cosier. They add a soft, gentle light to your rooms that reminds you of twinkling stars. Fairy lights aren’t just for kids either. These days, you can buy sophisticated adult versions that dramatically enhance the appeal of your rooms.
Adjust Your Artwork
You can also make your bedroom more calming by adding the right kind of artwork. Focus mainly on scenes from nature and history. These help to calm your imagination. Also, try focusing on paintings that make use of warm, twilight colours to get you in the mood for sleep.
Hang Doilies On The Wall
Lace doilies are another good way to add softness and texture to your bedroom interiors. Plus, they are a great way to add a personal touch, especially if the doilies are from your grandma.
Adjust The Decor For The Season
Beach Balls don’t feel particularly cosy in the middle of winter, but frosted wreaths on your door do. It’s a good idea, therefore, to adjust your decor throughout the seasons. Make sure that your interiors reflect the weather outside.
