You shouldn’t have to stay in a luxury hotel to get a good night’s sleep. Here are several ways that you can make your bedroom feel as cosy as a five-star hotel room.
Cut down on clutter
A sense of tidiness is calming. If every surface of your bedroom is covered in clutter, consider sparing some time to sift through these items so that you can get rid of anything you no longer need. Find ways of storing other clutter away, even if it means buying new storage options. By cutting down on visible clutter, your room feel much cosier.
Upgrade your bedding
It could also be worth upgrading your bedding. If you’re able to splash out some serious money, you could consider a hybrid mattress – these contain a layer of memory foam on a hard mattress give you sturdiness and softness. Also consider buying some bright white Egyptian cotton sheets for that inviting hotel bed feel. Don’t be put off white sheets by the fact that they stain easily – there are many guides online that can help you when it comes to how to get sheets white. Also consider other elements of your bedding such as your duvet and pillows. For many people the thickness and material of these is personal preference.
Having a bedroom that’s perfectly prepped for sleep will help you to drop off easier at night, stay asleep, and have a better quality of sleep overall. Maybe you think you’re bedroom is perfectly prepped for sleep, but after reading this, you’ll come to realize that it’s not.
Here are some things you need to consider, think about, and do if you want a bedroom that’s perfect for sleep.
The Right Temperature
Your bedroom needs to be the right temperature for sleep, or you’re going to struggle. You may end up lying awake, or waking up constantly because you’re uncomfortable. Being too hot or too cold can do this. Your bedroom should be between 60-67 degrees for optimal sleep.
A Comfortable Bed
Your bed needs to be tailored to your own individual needs. There’s no one size fits all that suits everybody. It can be even harder to set up the perfect bed if you sleep with another person. The best thing you can do is go and test beds in person. You need something that’s not too firm, but not too soft; usually, this means being able to fit two fingers under your back while lying down. Also focus on having breathable, high quality bedding that will last. The higher the cotton count, the more luxurious the bedding, usually.
When you move into a new property, you’re likely to be more focused on getting everything organized and moved in than picturing how your home may look in five or ten years’ time. But once you’re settled into your new living space, it really is important to consider how you want your property to look down the line. Most people will say that they want their home to appear the same or improved in the future. But unfortunately, the opposite often occurs.
We end up getting used to our properties and neglecting them. As time goes on, we clean them less frequently, allow junk and mess to accumulate, and fall slack on repairs and maintenance. But this doesn’t have to be the case. While major problems can be rectified at any time, they are likely to be time-consuming and costly if ignored for long. Instead, why not set out on the right foot and do everything you can to keep your home in good condition and on a positive progressive path. Here are a few things that you can do to help yourself along the way!
When we think about décor, most of the time we think about how a room looks, and then about how it feels and how comfortable it is. We have more than two senses, however, and they are all important for making our environment feel pleasant to us. Yet many people neglect the importance of one of the most emotionally evocative senses: smell. Here, we’re going to look at why scent is so important in the home, and how to make the most impact on it with just a few tips.
It’s about strategic placement
Bad odors tend to have the habit of hanging around a lot longer than we would like. There are good reasons for that, too. Soft furnishings can make a room feel luxurious and extra-comfortable, but their fibers tend to trap in the things floating around in the air. They hold onto those bad smells, so when you’re trying to give the room a bit of fragrance, they can hold onto good smells, as well.
Pulling a room together can be a lot of fun. While choosing to decorate an entire house in one go can feel like too much work, at the same time, it’s often a great way to make sure that each room flows together. Because that’s often the key to getting your decor right – you have to be able to build it all up so that it just works. From your workspace to your living spaces, you’ll want to create interiors that work well for their function, but look incredible too. One of the best ways to make sure you nail the latter is to work in soft furnishings. They often soften the room and bring the entire look together. So let’s take a look at how you can complement your decor and finish it off with the right soft furnishings.
