We all want to sleep in comfortable surroundings. But for many of us, the bedroom is a room that we ignore. We give the lion’s share of our attention to other spaces in our home, in spite of the amount of time we spend in the sack. It just doesn’t make sense.
Sometimes the problem isn’t a lack of attention, though. Instead, it’s the fact that we simply don’t know how to improve our bedrooms. We’re living in a topsy-turvy world where we think that all we can do is make small changes.
If you’re in this position, don’t worry. This post is here to help. In this article, we run through some of the tried-and-tested ways you can upgrade your bedroom and get way more out of it.
Install Blackout Curtains
Blackout curtains are something of a godsend, particularly for those of us who live in cities with light pollution. They prevent light from coming into your rooms during the night, improving your sleep quality and making you feel so much more refreshed when you wake up in the morning.
Blackout curtains aren’t usually too expensive. And they come in a host of beautiful designs, unlike in the past.
Change Your Mattress
Mattresses are another important component for good sleep. If they are too soft, you’ll feel like you’re slowly being subsumed during the night. Likewise, if they are too firm, it’s like sleeping on wooden boards.
Go to a mattress shop and find a mattress that gets the balance right. If you are of a lighter build, you’ll want to choose a slightly software mattress to provide cushioning and reduce pressure points. If you are heavier, then you’ll need a firmer mattress that will support you more.
Wardrobes That Fit Your Room
Don’t underestimate the power of built in wardrobes to transform your bedroom. Once you fit them to the room, you suddenly find that you have so much more space. And they look stylish too. You can take an unloved corner of the room and utterly transform how it makes you feel by adding fitted, room-specific furniture to it.
Plant Pot Set
Adding plants to your bedroom is a great way to transform how it feels. A little touch of greenery here and there can make it so much more inviting.
If you want something low maintenance, choose succulents and place them on your windows. These require very little attention and will remain green and verdant throughout the year.
For a slightly more dramatic look, you might want to invest in orchids. These beautiful flowers will thrive even in low-light conditions.
Install A Sunlight Alarm
Sunlight alarms pair well with blackout curtains. Just like other alarm clocks, they work on a timer. But instead of emitting some awful buzzing noise in the morning to get you out of bed, they emit natural daylight instead using special LEDs. This way, you can wake up more naturally instead of feeling like you are being jolted out of the sack.
