Benefits of having a well-designed bedroom

December 9th, 2020

Bedrooms are the primary place of relaxation, where we all retrieve at night to take a good sleep and refresh away from the world stresses and worries.

It’s so extremely important to provide us with that instant feel of relaxation to help our body restore, making us feel good for the day ahead.

Everyone likes having a beautiful bedroom: But did you know that having a well-designed bedroom has numerous advantages for your health and well-being?

Here is a list of the benefits when having a well-designed bedroom – some of these are going to surprise you!

The way your bed is positioned

Your bed’s placement can have a direct influence on the quality of your sleep. According to Feng Shui principles, a bed should be placed as far from the bedroom door as possible and not directly in line with the door. This allows the sleeper to feel in control of the space, instead of caged, overwhelmed or intimidated. The more you can see of the room and the door, the better.

Blocking and filtering light

Secure a great night’s rest or a power nap with blackout curtains and blinds. Our eyes are equipped with optic nerves that can detect light through our closed eyelids, and once detected, the “wake up” signal is sent to the brain. It’s best to ban light from the bedroom to encourage our bodies’ natural recuperation processes.

Choose your mattress with care

Like with little Goldilocks, a bed has to be perfect for your body to get the most out of your rest. Luckily, you don’t have to tempt fate by enraging a bear, but you do have to do a bit of research and test mattresses before bringing one home. A quality mattress can ease back and neck pain as well as improve posture, which makes the mattress the most important feature in the bedroom.

Calming and Soothing Décor

Create the ultimate relaxation space with calming hues and minimal décor. According to colour psychology, colour has a definitive impact on our moods and can influence physical experiences. There are many differing opinions and studies, but the consensus is that muted colours, especially shades of blue are the most conducive to sleep while bright colours are overstimulating and likely to keep you up at night.

TV & Electronics

Recent studies tell us, yet again, that electronics and television in the bedroom is still a very bad idea. The duration and quality of sleep have been on a steady decline in the past few decades, while the use of electronics has been on a steady incline. Artificial light at night suppresses melatonin; a hormone that prepares the body for sleep and is related to blood pressure and glucose levels.

Music and Sounds

Incorporate soothing nature sounds into the bedroom. Water promotes calm and helps to soothe the mind, so a real water-feature is ideal. However, if that’s not a viable option, you can choose an integrated sound system with soothing music. Even though you should limit the light in your bedroom, the use of a sound system could benefit your sleep.

I Hope these few tips will inspire you to a few changes in your sleeping habits, so you can feel fresh and relaxed when you wake up!
