today I want to talk to you about one of my favorite rooms in the house. The bedroom. A humble room with one purpose. Sleep. Ok there are other things you can do in a bedroom but we don’t want to start going into those details, thank you very much!
Your bedroom is the first thing you see when you open your eyes and the last thing you see before you close them. So it stands to reason this room should be a space you enjoy and love. It needs to both inspire you for the day ahead, and relax you for a perfect night’s sleep. Follow our key steps to turning your bedroom into the perfect balance of inspiration and relaxation.
Ok, let’s start with the bed. This is one area where style over comfort should not be your thing. Sleep is one of the most important things we can do for our bodies. Most of us neglect our beds, taking for granted how important they really are on our mental and physical health. If you haven’t updated your mattress for over seven years then naughty you! They have a lifespan you know!? Memory foam mattresses are incredibly popular both in the medical world and with consumers. Have a look at Memory Foam Mattress Reviews to gauge which one is right for you and give your body the respect it deserves! You’ll thank us in the morning.
Make your room as clutter free as possible. Clutter is not a great thing to work out. You may have heard the saying ‘A messy home leads to a messy mind’ and we are afraid to tell you that scientific evidence makes this a fact. Make sure you have plenty of storage space and lots of clean empty sides. Do not use this room as a place to hide your ever growing mountain of washing. When you walk into the bedroom you should be leaving the housework behind you!
Giving your room a warm cosy glow is a great way of getting comfy at night. For those who like to read before bed, consider a bedside lamp which emits enough light to prevent you from straining your eyes but doesn’t trick your brain into thinking it’s daytime. It’s handy to be able to click one switch without getting out of bed.
Natural light might be the enemy in the evening, but it is your bestfriend in the morning. Consider getting an opaque blind which will give you enough block out to not be blinded by the moon, but will allow a gentle flow of light to help your body wake up naturally. You could also consider a sun lamp. Placed by your bed you can set this on a timer to help bring your body out of a deep sleep and leave you feeling more refreshed in the morning.
Finally, get some art. A few well placed inspiring pieces can lift your mood in the morning and encourage you to think positively. Whether it’s a framed photo of your dog, your children or a Picasso, it really doesn’t matter. As long as it sets you off in a happy frame of mind and gives you a smile.
Don’t neglect your bedroom. Give it the love it deserves.
Lot's of love
