How To Design Your Bedroom For Better Quality Sleep

ASSALAMUALAIKUM AND SALAM SEJAHTERA 

Living in the city can get quite stressful for some of us. Which is why it is even more important for you to get the best quality sleep you can get. The only way to ensure your energy is replenished after a long day is to get a good night’s sleep. With the hustle and bustle of the city in the background, there is always some ambient noise in the night, even in areas like Bukit Jelutong. This can be detrimental to some. However, worry not, as there are other ways to bring back the balance in ensuring your sleeping space stays as serene as possible.

Often, creating a soothing sleeping space not only requires well-thought out design but also is an exercise in restraint. While there is formula that will guarantee a successful sleeping space, there are certainly some design ideas that will surely help you on your way to achieving a more intimate and serene space. Read on for some tips to help you create the cozy boudoir that will ensure you have the sweetest dreams.



Invest in a good mattress

The quality of sleep that you get is only as good as what you sleep on. A bad mattress can end up keeping you up all night trying to find a comfortable position to fall asleep in. Thus, a good night’s rest can sometimes be achieved as easily as getting a good mattress. Your goal is thus to get a mattress that makes you feel like you are sleeping on a cloud. Keep in mind that there are a variety of mattresses available, including pillow, foam, innerspring, waterbed, airbed, and list goes on and on. Each type of mattress suits different types of sleepers. In order to make sure that you get the best mattress for your body type and sleeping style, you should research extensively, as a mattress is undoubtedly a very important (and also expensive) purchase. Remember to test it out and not to be afraid to try out or lie down on a mattress in stores.

Ensure darkness

One of the most important conditions that usually contributes to better sleep quality is darkness. The amount of light/darkness affects our body’s physiology. In more scientific terms, our mind and our body have a natural circadian rhythm that follows a dark-light cycle. So, if your bedroom is bright all the time, how is your body supposed to know that it’s supposed to go into the sleep cycle? Thus, having a dark and calm environment helps our body program itself to get ready for sleep. In this day and age of technology, however, many modern devices (such as digital clocks, phones and computers) give out ambient light that may end up disrupting your REM sleep. Some solutions include hiding away your digital gadgets behind closed cabinets or hiding them in a side table drawer.

Air temperature is crucial

Like lighting, the temperature of your bedroom can also end up affecting your sleep. A room that is too warm or too cold can disturb you sleeping cycle as much as the amount of light/darkness. A simple solution to this issue is to alter the temperature of your space if you find that you have trouble sleeping. Try sleeping in a temperature that is a bit warmer or cooler, depending on your current room environment. Other options include incorporating a ceiling fan to help regulate the temperature, or add heavier window treatments to keep outside weather conditions from entering your bedroom.

Sample soothing sounds

Sounds can also make or break your sleeping cycle. In areas surrounding big cities, you might find that ambient noise is always present (whether it is from surrounding traffic or higher density neighborhoods). These background noises can sometimes end up disturbing your sleep, especially if you are a light sleeper. If this is the case, soothing sounds can help promote better sleep. Consider investing in a sound machine or sound player that emits soothing sounds such as a babbling brook or soft wind chimes. These sounds can sometimes cover up the background noise and help you on your way to better and more soothing sleep.

Dial down your palette

Sometimes, if you have trouble sleeping in your bedroom, perhaps you need to carefully re-examine your space for the culprits of your bad quality sleep. For example, busy patterns and bright hues in the bedroom can have the opposite effect on a calm and serene evening. While bright and vibrant colours can be fun for design, it’s sometime best to stay away from them within a bedroom. Instead, use calm and serene colors to help bring in the right ambience. Another rule of thumb is to add a combination of d├ęcor ideas (think about comfortable cashmere for throws and simply tailored fabrics for drapes) to really take the room from loud and noisy to calm and serene without needing to give your space a total overhaul.

So, we’ve come to the conclusion that the right environment is needed in order for your bedroom space to be conducive for sleep. Hopefully one (if not all) of these ideas can help you maintain and improve your bedroom space as a sanctuary of rest and relaxation.
