5 Tips for Creating a Serene Bedroom Experience

As they say, you’re either in your bed or in your shoes, so it pays to invest in both. It’s important to have a serene bedroom that’s conducive to sleeping, considering we spend roughly a third of our lives doing it. Sleep is also a time for your body to rest and repair itself, store memories, and rejuvenate your muscles and bones. One way to achieve this is by considering a loft conversion to free up more space for your bedroom. 

If you have an unwelcoming bedroom, you may be putting yourself at risk of adverse health consequences like depression, heart issues, and obesity. To prevent yourself from these risks, you need to revamp your bedroom. That’s where we come in to help. Keep reading to learn about some helpful tips for creating a serene bedroom experience.

Tip #1: Get a Comfortable Bed

The bed should be the focal point of the room. While mattresses can be expensive up front, they can last up to a decade, which is why making the initial investment is worth it. When it comes to choosing the perfect bed, you want to make sure you do your research. This means going to your local mattress store and testing them out. Do you prefer a firm mattress? Or, would you rather sink and float away in a memory foam mattress?

Along with the mattress, you want a sturdy frame that won't squeak and creak with every move. Liberty Furniture is a trusted brand that has great bed frames and bedroom sets to choose from. Other popular brands include Hooker Furniture, American Drew, and Lexington.

Tip #2: Adjust the Lighting

If you don’t know much about sleep, here’s a quick run-down: Your body runs on something called the circadian rhythm, which is a daily sleep-wake cycle of behavioral, physical, and mental changes. It’s largely influenced by the sun’s light, which is why we naturally become tired as nighttime approaches. However, in the modern age we live in today, light can be constant, thanks to fluorescent light bulbs and smartphones. Light emanating from everyday devices can interrupt our circadian rhythm, resulting in poor sleep.

To create a serene bedroom, you need to adjust your lighting. If you have large windows that let the sun creep in every morning, hang up some blackout shades. There are plenty of blackout shades that won’t sacrifice style, so your room will look like it’s straight from a magazine. 

If you have a TV in your room, you may want to consider placing it somewhere else. The same goes for using your cell phone and laptop at night, too. Blue light from these devices inhibits melatonin, which is the chemical responsible for making you tired.

Tip #3: Stay Organized

An unorganized room can lead to disorganized thoughts, which can result in your mind racing a mile a minute. Cleaning your room before bed will help you sort your thoughts and relax, helping you fall asleep quicker. 

Vacuuming and dusting will remove any dust and debris, which will enhance your bedroom’s air quality. This will help improve your breathing and get rid of any allergens that irritate you.

Tip #4: Redecorate

Sometimes all you need is a fresh makeover to create a serene bedroom experience. If your walls are painted a warm color like yellow, red, or orange, consider repainting them to a cooler blue, lavender, or gray. Cooler hues will promote calmness, while warmer colors will energize you.

Redecorating your bed with new linens and a comforter will also create a peaceful bedroom. If you have trouble sleeping at night, throw down some bamboo linens that will keep you cool and refreshed. Then, place a weighted blanket on top that will hug you every night and rid you of anxiety and stress.

Finish off your bedroom by decorating your walls with serene artwork. Some ideas include a landscape image of the beach, forest, or rural pasture. 

Tip #5: Eliminate Distractions

The last tip for creating a serene bedroom experience is eliminating any distractions. Loud noises and bright lights can keep you up all night tossing and turning. Invest in a sleep mask and earplugs if the city noises and lights are too much to handle. A white noise machine, ceiling fan, and standing fan are other options that will drown out outside noises.

Key Takeaways

Creating a serene bedroom experience won’t cost you an arm and a leg. With a few simple changes, such as a fresh coat of paint and a comfortable bed, you’ll have the sleeping sanctuary of your dreams.
