Ah, bedrooms! Bedrooms deserve all your attention. In fact, in many ways, the bedroom is the most important room inside your home. It’s the place where you go to rest so you can wake up ready for a new day. Therefore, homeowners are constantly looking for new ideas to improve the decor and the atmosphere of the bedroom. In a previous article, we already reviewed some of the best changes you can make to create a big difference. Elegant lighting can change the focal point and create a dim ambience before going to bed. Elegant cushions paired with a throw can dress the bed and make it look more appealing. Add a rug by the side of the bed so you can set out of bed in style and with warm feet! The addition of mirrors can add depth and light to the bedroom. Pair photos or artworks with greenery to build a welcoming and soothing atmosphere.
But that’s not all. There’s so much more you can do to improve your night’s sleep.
A special bed for your pet
If you have a dog or a cat, you might be familiar with the struggle of sharing the bed with your beloved pet. Pets want to stay close to you, even at night. So, it’s not unexpected for a pet owner to wake up feeling sore and tired after sharing the bed. If you are not comfortable with keeping your pet out of the bedroom, you can consider the addition of a mattress from Pawpedics or a similar brand for your pet. A dog or cat bed can maintain your bond with your pet without having to share the bed!
Make it screen-free
As tempting as it is to watch a film while lying down in bed, you want to keep the TV out of the bedroom. Screen time makes it hard to sleep. The average person watches over 35 hours of TV in a week. That’s approximately 5 hours of TV each day. When you include working hours, you are likely to go to bed late at night and feel tired. Besides, a screen-free room allows for a better and deeper bond with your partner. You can lie down together, make plans for the future, and talk about your days rather than turn on the TV.
The bedroom contains a lot of allergens and VOCs, ranging from pet dandruff to bedding fabrics. Additionally, mould spores, dust mites, and synthetic materials can also be a source of discomfort. Unfortunately, these issues are invisible to the naked eye, so most people don’t realise how unclean the air is inside the bedroom. A portable air purifier can be crucial to clear the air and preserve your sleep.
Nobody likes to be sweaty at night. The previous heatwave in the UK has made us aware of the essential role of our beddings. Breathable fabrics such as cotton and linen are much better suited for the bedroom. They reduce overheating at night and keep a healthy air circulation around your body. In short, you wake up feeling refreshed.
It’s time to make your bedroom a sleep haven. Increasing comfort level inside the bedroom doesn’t need to break the bank. Sometimes, it’s the little things such as adding a bed for your dog or changing your bedsheets that can make all the difference. Lie down, relax, and catch up on your zzz.
