Do you wish you could enjoy a better quality of sleep? If so, tweaking your bedroom decor could yield surprisingly positive results. Read on for 5 simple tips! Get comfy If you like sitting up in bed to have a quick read or to watch TV at night, ensure you have something comfy to lean on. Leather or upholstered beds are perfect for resting your back on before you decide to get some sleep. Calming colours Colours can affect the mood of any room, so choose wisely. If your aim is to create a relaxing sleeping space, use light colours. Soft shades of green, aqua or purple are worth trying. Tidy up! Psychologists would argue that if your room is messy, you’ll have more chaotic thoughts. A tidy, clutter-free bedroom should put your mind at ease and help your body relax. Dim the lights If you have difficulties getting to sleep in the first place, it could be a result of too much light in the bedroom. Strong light, both natural and artificial, can confuse the body clock so try and keep your bedroom dark at bedtime. Freshen it up Make sure your bedroom is nice and fresh – change the bed linen at least once a week. You could even bring some flowers into the room. sleep-well-bedroom
