For many pregnant women out there, getting a great night’s sleep seems to be one of those things that is difficult to achieve. But if this is you, and even if you’re not pregnant, do you still struggle to get the required 8 hours? Does your bedroom feel more like a storage place and not a relaxation zone?
If so, there could be a variety of factors, not least if your bedroom isn’t conducive to relaxation. Getting inspiration from luxury hotels around the world, here are our top tips for making your snooze zone feel like a stay in a five star hotel.
1A Good Quality Mattress
If you’ve been using the same mattress for years on end, this may very well be the one thing to turn around your sleep quality.
You can view Mattress-Guides.net for a guide on the different types of mattresses out there, especially if budget is a problem. But, even if you don’t think you’re in the market for a new mattress, it’s still worth considering, because if you have been using the same old mattress for a long time, it’s going to force you to sleep in uncomfortable positions, which can impact you over the years.
Second most important thing that will make a huge difference in your bedroom is quality bedding. Egyptian cotton might sound fancy and expensive, but if you add in the costs of your worn off bedding that you need to replace every few years, it might not seem that bad idea in the end.
Adding different style of bedding is also an easy and quick way to change the look of your bedroom.
It’s far more difficult to get right then you realize. It depends on who you’re sharing the bed with, and if they’re terribly warm-blooded, but a cool bedroom is the best way to get a good night’s sleep. If you have struggles getting to sleep because it’s too warm, especially in the summer months, taking the very simple approach of wetting your hair before going to sleep will keep you cool.
If you’re feeling brave enough, having a cold shower a couple of hours before bedtime is a simple way to bring your body temperature down, so you can easily relax into slumber. Heat is something we place an over-reliance on, but it’s finding that sweet spot between warm and cool that gives us the benefits in life. If we are too hot, we’re not going to be able to slip into a good quality deep sleep.
Nothing makes your bedroom feel as luxurious as wisely chosen color pallet. Starting with the walls – go for something bold to add that hotel feeling to your bedroom. Beautiful color pallets are available in Pinterest with lots of inspiration and envy-worthy bedrooms to check.
You don’t have to spend thousands on a headboard – these days they can be easily done as a DIY project. Headboards are one of the main focal points of your bedroom and you can make a grand impact using the right type of headboard for your bedroom.
6Plants oh Plants
Adding a few plants to your bedroom has not only visual benefits, but also health benefits. Certain type of plants are proven to improve the quality of the air and help you sleep better.
Switch from a standard night lamp to something more moody and relaxing. Strings of fairy lights will immediately make you feel like you’re staying in a little cocoon.
