5 bedroom design tips for the sleep deprived

Did you know that man is the only mammal that willingly delays sleep; Why won’t we? Imagine all the things we can do if we didn’t have to sleep, right?

Uh, wrong.

Sleep is a vital part of work productivity. Sleep helps us solidify and consolidate our memories, turning short term memories into long-term, stronger memories. That’s why it helps to sleep after a good amount of studying. The way a bedroom is designed contributes to the amount and the quality of sleep one gets. If you are having trouble with sleeping, maybe it is time for you to do some rearranging to help you get some shut eye.   Here are 5 ways you can have a sleep friendly bedroom.

Shut out drapes

1. Keep the lights out

If you have big windows in your room, invest in curtains that keep the light out. Having light in your bedroom can alter sleeping patterns. There are types of sleepers that don’t fully close their eyes, and even the dimmest of lights can wake them up. Shut out curtains prevents interrupted sleep due to visual distractions.

2. The bedroom is for sleeping

Make your bedroom a space for rest, sleeping and other bed-related things. Bed side reading may be one of them but office work is not. Opt to put your desk in a space away from the bed, where you might be tempted to do some work instead of sleeping. There is no getting away with this– and no, a pile of paperwork on the bed does not count as sleep friendly.

3. Clutter makes a scatterbrain

Don’t be offended; scatterbrains are usually people with big imaginations and a lot of thoughts which is why they get very little sleep. Having that clutter of random things in your room will not do very well in getting you to go to bed. Clean up and keep your room tidy. This will help you from staying up all night to finish a project. Better yet, this will keep you from cleaning your room in the middle of the night because of all that mess.

4. Great Big Bed

You want a mattress that will put you into a nice deep sleep and wake you up without back pain and ache all over. Talk with a mattress expert to discuss about your sleeping habits and what type of bed would fit perfect for your body size and specifications. If the bed that you have right now is more than 10 years old, then its high time you get a new one.

5. Peaceful Paint Color

When painting a bedroom, choose a calm and peaceful color palette. Avoid high energy, bright colors. You might want to go for a neutral, all natural bedroom, a deep ocean blue, hushed grey or even dark shades. Choose artwork and linen that is soothing to the sight and the touch to make you want to sleep.

A good night’s rest does not stop at having a sleep friendly bedroom environment, it also requires good sleeping and pre-sleeping habits. Studies suggest that using a smartphone, watching tv or using any e-reading devices can disrupt sleep. It is suggested that you “Keep the device at least 14 inches from your face and turn down your screen’s brightness to reduce your risk of light-related sleep problems”
