A good night’s sleep is essential for anybody’s well-being, and if your bedroom décor is giving you sleepless night’s then it is time for a change. The wrong bed, and even the wrong bedroom accessories and colours can prevent you from enjoying what should be the most relaxing room in your home, but with our simple tips, you can be on your way to the land of Nod in no time.
Choose a colour scheme to suit your personal taste
It’s very tempting to follow trends and be swayed by the latest styles and colours, but if you are spending all your time repainting your bedroom walls to keep up with the most recent fashions, you won’t have any time for sleep! You know what colours you like, and you will also be aware if you are the type of person who changes their mind a lot. If you are the latter, stick to neutral tones for the walls and carpets, and use accessories such as cushions and throws to mix it up when you want to change the colour scheme. If, however, you adore bold colours, and you know for a fact that will never change, make a feature wall in your bedroom and paint it, or decorate it in the wildest of schemes.
Invest in the best bed you can afford.
The right bed is essential and you will regret scrimping on this important piece of furniture. The bed is the main event in the bedroom, so choose wisely and invest in the best bed you can afford. This doesn’t mean that there aren’t bargains to be found and companies like Bedstar are a great choice when your bedroom needs a revamp, as they have a fantastic selection of bedframes and mattresses which are both affordable and stylish for. Be aware of what type of mattress you require to sleep well, and if the mattress you have at the moment is too hard, or even too soft, ensure you replace it at the same time you select a brand new bed frame.
Be afraid to be creative
The most adorable pieces of art are the ones created by your family, and what better way to fall asleep than while looking at a wall of framed pictures drawn and painted by your little ones? Turn your children’s scribblings and photos into an exhibit by framing them and hanging them on the bedroom wall. If you want to take things one step further, there are companies that can print your kids’ creations onto duvet covers and pillow cases.
Forget to ask the person who shares your bed!
If you are part of a couple, you may want to ask your partner their views on the décor before putting your personal stamp on the room, as if they don’t like what you have in mind and you go ahead and “surprise” them with a complete overhaul, you may never get a good night’s sleep ever again….
