How to Create the Perfect Bedroom to Unwind in

The bedroom is one of the most important rooms in the home; it’s where you recover from a busy day and get the all-important sleep you need to recharge your batteries.

From the colours you choose to decorate this room in to what furniture you have, there are some key things you will want to ensure your room features in order to make it the perfect space.

Remove clutter

Remove any distractions from your room so you can relax easily. To remove clutter, you need smart storage options that let you find a home for something that’s out of sight. So instead of having open shelves, look at getting storage such as a divan bed. With built-in storage, it can help you eliminate distractions – as well as being a comfy place to rest your head. Divan Beds Centre offers a range of styles to suit any room with sliding door and draw options.

Invest in a good mattress

Never underestimate the power of a good mattress. It can prevent back and neck issues meaning you can get the best sleep. There are different mattresses for different needs:

  • Traditional spring or open spring: Provide great value for money with a range of comfort levels, but you may need a foam topper on top of the springs
  • Pocket spring: Offers brilliant support to the whole body to prevent you and your partner rolling in together
  • Hybrid: Offers a blend of spring and memory foam layer for extra support
  • Memory foam: It moulds and contours to your body, offering you the ultimate comfort.

You should look at replacing your mattress when it reaches eight years old, or you start to have poor sleep due to the poor level of comfort.

Remove blue light

Blue light comes from smartphones, tablets, games systems and televisions and can really disturb your sleep and can have negative effects on your health. Your eyes can’t block out blue light, so it travels to the back of your retina. Ever wondered why your eyes are sore in the morning after watching TV late? It’s this. You should reduce how much time you spend on these devices 2-3 hours before you go to bed – and if you usually fall asleep with the TV on, you should think about stopping this altogether.

Love lavender

Lavender is great for relaxation. It has been found to reduce stress and lower your heart rate and blood pressure by filling your room with calming floral aromas. You can add lavender to your room in many ways:

  • Having an indoor lavender plant
  • Using lavender pillow sprays to aid sleep
  • Lavender-scented candles
  • Essential oils.
Get blackout curtains

This small change can make a huge difference. Blackout curtains can block the most intense lights, whether it’s from the sun, a street lamp or car headlights. They’re also great if you’re a shift worker needing to block out the day so you can get some well-earned rest. Blackout curtains can even help block out some noise, making them a great solution to getting an undisturbed rest.

Don’t delay turning your bedroom into the best place to unwind after a busy day with a few little changes.
