These Bedroom Designs Promise a Better Night's Sleep
Not getting enough sleep even for just one night can lead to fatigue, trouble focusing, and increased irritability.
While there are many causes of insomnia, which include health issues and stress; your sleep environment i.e. the state of your bedroom could play a significant part as well.

It doesn’t hurt to give your bedroom a sweet, slumber-worthy makeover! Here’s a quick guide to help you redesign your bedroom and get your forty winks:
1. Turn off the lights
Want more restful sleep? Avoid light interruptions. Being exposed to light when you are trying to fall asleep e.g. street lights or sunlight can affect your sleep quality. Bright lights can even disturb your body’s internal clock. In fact, such lighting can delay the release of melatonin, a hormone that helps you sleep.

Consider investing in high-quality blackout drapes or heavy blinds to keep disruptive rays of light out of your bedroom.

2. Keep your bedroom cool
It’s hard to fall asleep in a hot and stuffy room, especially if you are dealing with blocked sinuses or respiratory issues. To sleep better, you need to be able to breathe well, however, sleeping with your windows open at night might not be a good idea as it exposes your to air pollutants, outdoor noises and insects.

For better circulation and cooling, ensure that your room is well-ventilated. You can do this by leaving interior doors opened during the day to allow air to flow through. You should also leave your windows open for a spell, early in the morning. Consider installing a ceiling fan to complement your air conditioner. Run both simultaneously (with the air conditioner at medium temp) as you sleep to keep the space breezy and comfortably cool.

3. Modify the layout
A cramped and crowded bedroom layout can induce visual stress and make it harder for you to fall into a restful sleep. Avoid filling your bedroom with ‘stressful’ items like exercise equipment, computers, television set and etc., especially if your bedroom has a small space. Keep the arrangements simple and clean, with as minimal distractions as possible.

If you have enough space, angle your bed away from the wall and closer to the centre of the room. Keep other bedroom furniture at least three to four feet away from the bed; this will give the room a less-confined appearance. With a smaller space, consider arranging furniture in an L-shape. For instance, anchor the bed against a side wall, and place other furniture against adjacent and parallel walls. And speaking of beds, you’ll also need a good mattress atop one. Do check out our mattress guide for choosing the right one for you.

4. Create a serene space
Induce calm and relaxing vibes to help you sleep better with the right décor elements. Start by setting a restful colour scheme for your walls and soft furnishings. Try soft grey, pale blue, lavender, mauve, sage green, or neutrals like cream or beige. For furniture, opt for pieces made of natural materials like wood with minimal embellishments (e.g. skip bejewelled headboards, etc.) and concealed storage to reduce visual distractions/clutter.

Similarly, do avoid overly ornamented lighting fixtures; choose clean and simple lampshades with light lumens of 230 to 270 in warmer tones. If budget permits, consider installing natural hardwood floors that reflects warmth and cosiness. Alternatively, you can add rugs to improve the overall atmosphere of your bedroom.
