Getting a better sleep may be as simple as making a few (fun) decorative changes to your bedroom, although you don't need to be a designer to get good sleep. Here are 3 easy things you can do to make your sleep space better for snoozing:
Cool-tone colours have a more relaxing effect in comparison to warm shades, which can disrupt sleep by increasing heart rate, blood pressure and body temperature.1 One study found that nearly 60% of those with blue bedroom walls reported waking up feeling refreshed and happy on a regular basis.2 You may not be re-painting your bedroom anytime soon, but consider changing up your bedding for a more calming sleep space (and a plus: grey matches with everything!)
Along with being an adorable decorative piece that comes in many varieties, diffusers help support good sleep by providing humidity and the benefits of essential oils. Studies have even shown the positive impact that essential oils have on sleep!3 So add "turning on my diffuser" to your bedtime routine to help you fall asleep faster and wake up feeling more refreshed.
Another important element to your bedroom design is the the amount of light it gets. Although sun shining in is beautiful in the day, light can disturb your melatonin levels, making it difficult to fall asleep.4 Even artificial light can disturb your sleep, so try to sleep in total darkness. Getting blackout curtains can be a lovely design element to add to the bedroom which serve the purpose of decor and darkness!
At least one of these tips will give you better rest (and a better looking bedroom), so we hope you are inspired to try one of them out!
