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.
Regulate the temperature
In order to keep your bedroom temperature at just the right level, consider switching to smart heating. This could allow you to control the temperature of your room from your phone – this could save you having to get up in the night to reach for the thermostat. Getting a digital thermometer in your room could also allow you to automate your heating to come on when it gets too cold or air conditioning to come on when it gets too hot.
Block out the morning sunlight
Blackout curtains or blinds could be just what you need if you’re tired of being woken up by street lights or the morning sun. On top of blocking out the light, these curtains can help to keep your room cool. You can even get these remote controlled so that you don’t have to get up to open and close them.
Keep your feet warm
If you’ve got wooden floors in your bedroom, it could be time to lay down a carpet or alternatively buy a nice rug. This can help to keep your feet warm first thing in the morning when you get out of bed. Another more expensive option could be underfloor heating.
Wake up to a cup of coffee
Why not put a kettle or coffee machine on your bedside cabinet so that you can wake up an make yourself a nice hot brew without leaving the bed. You could also put a TV in your bedroom and wake up to some morning television, allowing to wake up more gradually. You could even set your TV and kettle to come on at a certain time in the morning – an alarm with a difference.
