7 Things to Help Turn Your Bedroom into the Ultimate Sleep Cave
In your condo you have a clutter-free space that’s practically devoted to an affluently soothing nap…
A room where everything from the fragrance in the air to the sheets seems to have been cautiously handpicked to augment feelings of peace and relaxation…
And to top it all up to you also have blackout shades that block out the light from your room…
But something’s still missing. It still feels like you could do a bit more to make your bedroom a little bit more sleep-friendly. Luckily for you, we have rounded up 7 things that’ll help turn your bedroom into the ultimate sleep cave within no time at all.
Make Comfort Your Topic Priority
Forget about all the fussy details and scratchy bedding materials and instead go for more subtle materials that make for a good night slumber. Think crisp cotton and pleasantly tangible materials with a hint of comfort and a cozy cashmere throw.
2. Carpet the Room
Ever stepped out of the bed in the wee hours of the morning and all you could feel was the cold floor practically begging you to go back to sleep? If you have, then you know full well just how bad not carpeting can be. Carpets not only feel lush underfoot but they also make stepping out of bed a little bit more appealing. And, it can also muffle sounds for a more restful mood.
3. Keep the TV Out of the Bedroom
Screens tend to emanate a lot of light not to mention noise when turned on and so they might prove to be a bit of a problem especially when you are trying to get some sleep.
4. Clean the Air
Cleaning the air is something people with allergic reactions such as asthma are all too familiar with. However, that’s not to say that we can’t all try to keep our rooms as clean as possibly can be. On the contrary, it would do us a world of good if we could all strive to keep our rooms healthier and cleaner with an air purifier.
5. Try Out Some Soothing Bedtime Rituals
There are a number of soothing rituals you could try out.
Prepare a hot cup of tea – preferably herbal tea.
Read something uplifting.
Gradually lower the lights minutes before sleep time.
Bath with rose or lavender oil.
6. Declutter your nightstand
Keep your nightstand simple with just a few bedtime items such as a book, a cup of tea or a glass of warm water, a bud vase for fresh flowers and a candle.
7. Make Your Bed Early in the Morning
Bizarre as it sounds; nothing delays a good night’s sleep like an undone bed. You literally have to delay your napping hours by a few minutes so as to straighten out your bed and when you are finally done, it will take you a couple of minutes if not hours to finally get into sleep mode again.
