How To Design Your Bedroom For Better Sleep
Having trouble snoozing? Thanks to a few simple changes, you can turn your bedroom into a luxurious sanctuary that promotes better sleep.
With our top tips, we’ll show you how to design your sleeping space for ultimate rest and relaxation. Soon your bedroom will be a beautiful, comfortable and high-end haven you won’t want to leave.
Whether you’re a busy professional or just love to lounge, we have an idea for you on how to upgrade your space.
Let’s take a look.
Ramp up the bedding
Your bed needs to be the comfiest place in the bedroom - so what kind of bedding you’re working with matters. If you’re having trouble getting to sleep, it might be time to upgrade your duvet sets.
Investing in high-quality bedding and pillows can make all the difference in your quality of sleep. For bedding, look for high thread count sheets made from natural fibres such as cotton or linen. A high-end pillow made from memory foam or soft down will make the world of difference when it’s time to snooze.
Calming colour scheme
A calming colour scheme in blues, greens and neutrals creates a soothing atmosphere that promotes relaxation and tranquillity. Bright and bold colours can be too stimulating for bedrooms.
Introducing some accessories in calming and muted tones, like decorative cushions and throws, will help to promote rest and relaxation. Pairing these hues with natural materials like wood and wool will add to the serene vibes.
Keep devices hidden away
It’s far too tempting to scroll through TikTok when your phone is right next to the bed. Unfortunately, this can really affect your circadian rhythm if you’re checking your phone before bed.
Invest in a side table with space for wires so you can keep your batteries topped up, but out of sight. Choose side tables with drawers and cupboards that will hide away any unsightly charging stations. Marble, premium wood and gold are all premium finishes that promote relaxation.
The last thing anyone wants before going to sleep is to leave their bedroom messy. Psychologically, this clutter weighs on you and affects your ability to fall asleep. If this is you, it’s time to declutter.
Start off with excess clothes, books and other items, donating or selling anything you haven’t used in six months. Avoid having a lot of furniture in the room, as it can make the space feel cramped and cluttered. Make sure to make your bed each morning, and try to keep the nightstands and surrounding area as clutter-free as possible.
Go for blackout curtains
Blackout curtains are decorative and functional, blocking out more light to promote a restful slumber. They’re particularly useful for light sleepers as they plunge the room into darkness.
Neutral-coloured curtains such as white, beige or grey can also add a touch of elegance and sophistication to the room. If you’re wondering which length to go for, then floor-length curtains can add a touch of luxury and elegance to the room.
Lavender is well-known for its calming and relaxing properties, so investing in some scented products for your bedroom will have you drifting off in no time. This is an easy upgrade to bring into your bedroom that promotes a good night’s sleep.
Sleep masks, sachets and pillow sprays are all low-cost ways to incorporate lavender into your sleeping space. You could also invest in a diffuser and use essential oils to create a spa-like vibe in your bedroom.
Upgrade your bedframe
If you’re having trouble sleeping or staying asleep, then you may need to make some bigger upgrades to your bed. A new mattress made from high-density foam, memory foam or innerspring coils all provides excellent support while you’re sleeping.
If you’re sleeping next to someone, it might be time to invest in a bigger bed. There are loads of options that include storage, luxe headboards and premium materials to give you a great night’s sleep. Our range of luxury beds is the perfect place to find your new favourite relaxation space in the home.
Use soft lighting
Lighting is everything when it comes to making your bedroom into a haven for sleep. Introduce table and floor lamps for softer lighting and do away with the harsh overhead lights once and for all.
Warm-toned lightbulbs make a room feel cosier and more comfortable. Opting for lights with a dimming switch means you can control the mood of your bedroom to create a gorgeous space for relaxation.
Add a seating area
If you have the space, adding an armchair, chaise lounge or sofa to your bedroom will give you a comfy spot to wind down before bed - a must before getting to sleep. Aim for an intimate and cosy feel rather than big and expansive.
Consider your needs before accessorising the seating area, like whether it needs a small side table for holding books or personal items. Pop in some extra cushions and blankets for maximum chilled vibes. Comfortable and functional? Sign us up.
