Most people nowadays struggle to get the appropriate amount of sleep at night. There are a lot of elements that can cause someone to lose sleep, but there is an easy way to fall and stay asleep. The best part is that can be as easy as changing your home decor. So here are four simple decorating tips that will help you get better sleep!
Paint Soothing Colors
Color has a direct affect on people. That’s why it’s important to paint your bedroom a soothing color. It’s best not to paint your bedroom a bright color that pops because these colors tend to keep you alert and distracted, making it harder for you to fall and stay asleep. Instead, opt for cooler colors like blues, greens, or neutrals. However, don’t feel discouraged from using bright colors as accents in your decor or artwork. Subtle touches won’t overpower the room and make it difficult to sleep.
Create a Sense of Balance
A sense of balance can do wonders for your sleep patterns. Make sure to have the same amount of space on each side of you bed. The equal space creates a soothing sense of spatial balance, making it easier to sleep because you feel safe and comfortable. It’s best not to push your bed up against a wall or else an energy imbalance may disrupt your sleep. Arrange your furniture so that your bedroom has the perfect feng shui to help you sleep better.
Clear the Clutter
Don’t clutter your bedroom with extra papers, bills, and receipts. Clear the clutter and keep your bedroom clean from the chaos of everyday life. Your bedroom is your sanctuary, so you should keep it that way. Too much clutter in a room can cause anxiety and uneasiness, causing you to lose much needed sleep. Instead decorate with items that you absolutely love and find another place for that pesky paperwork, like a home office!
Adjust Bright Lights
Lighting is important, however, if your lights are too bright you should try adjusting them to make them dimmer. A room that is dark or has soft lighting is easier to fall asleep in. There are many steps you can take to make sure that bright lighting won’t affect your sleep pattern in the future. You could always opt to add a dimmer to your light switches so you can adjust the lighting to your liking. You could also add liners to your drapery to prevent outside light from disrupting your sleep. Or you could easily just change the watt of all your light bulbs as well. Just make sure to attain a soothing, ambient soft light so that you get better sleep.
Bonus: Clean Sheets/Linens
Clean sheets are a big help when it comes to sleeping. The freshness and cleanliness of linens will help you fall and stay asleep. Try to change your sheets once a week to keep them clean and you sleeping better!
