Home, Décor: Simple Bedroom Improvements to Enhance Sleep

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

A home's bedroom should be reserved primarily for sleep, but there are several changes that can improve the quality of one's sleep. Learn more about some simple ways to improve your bedroom for better sleep below.

Keep It Cool

A major way to improve sleep is by keeping the bedroom cool. There are many ways this can be done, the easiest of which is to add a quality fan. A fan can block any outside noise that might disrupt sleep as well. Another option is to keep the room as dark as possible. This prevents sunlight from heating up the space, which is especially helpful during the summertime.

Maintain Electronics Free Zone

Many bedrooms tend to have televisions in them, but this can also be harmful to quality sleep. The main reason is that the blue light from a television affects one's circadian rhythm. The same can be said for all devices, which is why you should keep them out of the bedroom.

Unplugging devices for use (not necessarily for charging) and returning to the past time of reading before sleep will do wonders to improve sleep patterns.

Check the Furniture

Another reason why many tend to suffer from poor sleep is due to the furniture in the bedroom. Be sure to check and see if there is any deterioration within the bed frame and replace it with higher-quality furniture. A mattress should be replaced every eight to ten years as well.

Get a Humidifier

Dry air during the winter can often cause a sore throat, which can also disrupt sleep. One way around this is by simply getting a humidifier for a bedroom.

This will add moisture to the air, making it easier to sleep. Humidifiers only need warm water and salt to work properly.

Add Some Fragrances

The last enhancement to improve your bedroom for better sleep is to add fragrance. Certain scents such as lavender, vanilla, and many others can put you in a relaxed state before going to bed. Candles and scent plug-ins are also easy upgrades to make a room smell wonderful and put the mind at ease before bed.
