A Bedroom Overhaul with Tips For Sweet Dreams

Create a bedroom that promotes a better night’s sleep, every single night!
If it takes you less than five minutes to fall asleep then very likely you are sleep deprived. The ideal amount of time is about 10 minutes, but if it takes longer than 20 minutes to fall asleep, overhauling your bedroom may help you sleep better.

All of us want a good night’s sleep.  It helps us be more energetic and productive but for some people, it’s just not that simple.  If you find yourself tossing and turning through the night, there may actually be a scientific reason for why it seems like it takes forever to fall asleep and why we wake up many times through the night. So check out our tips, and let us know if it works for you!

1.Does colour really matter?11

It just might!  Some experts are saying the colour of your bedroom walls may not matter, but rather the tone,so for example if you pick yellow, you should go with a soft yellow rather than a bright yellow and you should choose matte instead of glossy paint. 
Other experts say colour does make a difference and based on their research, a blue room will give you more hours of sleep than any other colour. 
Other colours topping the list for more hours of sleep include yellow, silver, or green.

Clutter in your room and under your bed could play a role in what’s keeping you up at night.  Look into the many storage solutions available that can help you achieve a clutter-free room.  Remove things like your television set or exercise equipment that can be tempting, distracting or make you feel guilty. Replace them with organisers like bedside tables, shoe cabinets, or even dressing tables, which also keeps your morning routine organised and less stressful, and makes you feel like a princess. Your bedroom is mainly for sleep, so keep that in mind as you begin to transition your room to a peaceful haven for a better night’s sleep.


3.Your surroundings – It’s Smart Invest in You

Be sure to surround yourself with things that make you feel calm.  It’s imperative that you have a bed that is inviting and comfortable, so you can be your very best the next day.  If the one you have is older and needs replaced or you simply want to update, make sure you choose a bed that will make you smile every time you walk into the bedroom, it’s one of the best investments you can make.  And besides, you deserve it! Why not indulge in the luxurious Luxo Niko Italian Design Queen PU Leather Bed Frame?


4.Set the mood

There’s nothing more relaxing than winding down in front of a roaring fire. If you don’t already have one, pick up a vent-free, bio ethanol fireplace, and enjoy the ambience without the hassle of the messy ashes.  When you are choosing one, be sure to consider the size of the room when selecting yours, if it’s a smaller space, a tabletop model or floor model will give you the perfect ambience with a real flame. The Luxo Chalice Bio Ethanol Fireplace could be the perfect choice for you!


7.Good habits to remember

Now that your bedroom is in order, stick to these habits for sweet dreams:    

  • Say no to late-night television.Not only does the light from a television suppress melatonin, but many programs are stimulating rather than relaxing. Try listening to music or audio books instead.
  • Be smart about e-readers. Devices that are back-lit, such as the Kindle Fire or the iPad are more disruptive than e-readers that don’t have their own light source—or good old-fashioned books.
  • When it’s time to sleep, make sure the room is dark. Use heavy curtains or shades to block light from windows, or try a sleep mask.    
  • Keep the lights down if you get up during the night. If you need some light to move around safely, a dim nightlight in the hall or bathroom could be sufficient, or you could simply use a small flashlight. This will make it easier for you to fall back to sleep.    
  • Alarm clocks are a necessity for many people. However, the light from them can be distracting, so try turning yours around so you the room is darker.
  • Allow at least three hours after eating or drinking before you go to bed. You will wake up less frequently and enjoy a better night’s sleep.
