There are many benefits to improving our sleep at night. And if you’re thinking about the ways you could improve your quality of sleep, there are some simple upgrades that can make a big difference. Here are some ideas to upgrade your Des Moines' bedrooms for a better night’s sleep:
Your shades and curtains are the first step to ensure you begin your days exactly how you want to. If you like to wake up with the sun, letting in natural light will be best. If you prefer total darkness when the sun comes up, then you can find blackout shades that won’t allow any light in. It’s really all about your personal preference. Once you determine the amount of light-blocking you’ll need, finding the right window treatments will be a breeze.
We’re more sensitive to the colors around us than we might think. And this is particularly true for the bedroom. Bright colors can be energizing and may not be very conducive to quality sleep. When it comes to creating a peaceful space in your bedroom to promote better rest, going with a softer, more neutral paint color is a wise option. You can always add a few pillows or blankets to bring in a pop of color if that’s more your style, but going with a lighter color for the walls is a great place to start.
It can be difficult to relax when surrounded by clutter. It can feel like just glancing around your room forms a to-do list in your head. Investing in some storage and organization systems to help store your belongings can help clear the room of clutter and remove distractions that make it difficult to rest.
Use an Alarm Clock Instead of Your Phone
While most of us are used to using our phones as alarm clocks, there’s some benefit to not having your phone beside you all night. So many of us spend time on our phones just before bed or start the day off checking email before we even set our feet on the floor. Choosing a stylish alarm clock can be a design feature that also encourages better routines around sleep.
Give yourself some options when it comes to lighting. Maybe in the morning you like some natural light to help you wake up, while before bed, warm, softer light can promote better relaxation. Adding a few side-table lamps or even a strand of lights can help you adjust the level and quality of light in your room.
With just a few minor modifications, you can easily improve your quality of sleep.
