4 Things that make a perfect bedroom sleep

We all have our idea of the perfect bedroom

Whether you have decided that it is time to give your bedroom a do-over or have recently moved into a new house and want to get started on making the bedroom perfect for you, there are lots of different things to consider when it comes to making sure that your bedroom is perfect for sleep. Ideally, we should spend between seven and nine hours in our bedrooms sleeping at night, and lots of us also use the bedroom to wind down and de-stress before sleeping whether you like reading, listening to music, or talking to your spouse about your day before bed. To create the perfect bedroom for getting an amazing night’s sleep, here are some of the main things you will need.

Supportive mattress

Getting a supportive mattress is probably one of the most important things for your bedroom. The truth is that no matter how nicely decorated your bedroom is or how amazing it looks, you are not going to get a good night of sleep if your mattress isn’t comfortable and doesn’t offer the right level of support. There are several things to consider before choosing a new mattress. Whether you sleep on your back, side, or front will help you determine the right firmness. It’s also important to consider the size of your room or a bedframe that you have to ensure that the mattress fits perfectly. Most mattresses are available in standard sizes such as queen or king bed dimensions.

Darkness

At night, our bodies produce more melatonin. This sleep hormone begins the process of winding down and falling asleep. The darker your room, the more melatonin you will release, which will help you get to sleep faster and enjoy a more restful sleep. If you have light that is sneaking in through the windows, you might not find it as easy to get to sleep. It’s important to make sure that you are easily able to control the light in your bedroom. Blackout curtains are the best way to do this, since they will block all light from the window even if you have streetlights outside.

Calming colors

Calm colours can help a relaxing atmosphere

If you are going to paint or redecorate your bedroom, then there are lots of colors available. However, to make a bedroom more ideal for sleeping, it’s important to consider which colors are going to help you feel calm rather than energized. Even if you love bright colors, they might not be the best option for a bedroom since bright walls are only going to give you more energy. Calming, soft colors are an ideal choice for bedrooms. Pastel pink or blue, sage green, or even a creamy off-white can work well. On the other end of the spectrum, dark colors can also be quite calming in the bedroom, and work very well in large spaces with high ceilings.

Dimmable lights

Finally, put some thought into the lighting that you choose for your bedroom. The main light might be fine for when you’re getting ready in your room in the morning, but you probably don’t want that on when you’re reading before bed at night. Dimmable lights are a great idea since you can control them to fit your needs at the time. Consider a light that you can control remotely so you don’t have to get up out of bed to adjust it. Bedside lights provide excellent soft lighting for when you’re winding down and relaxing before going to sleep.

Final thoughts on making the perfect bedroom

Whether you want a new look for your bedroom or have noticed that your current bedroom isn’t always a great place to sleep, keep these essentials in mind to create a bedroom that is perfect for making every night relaxing and restful.
