Sometimes you are just so tired that any old bed will do. Sometimes you just need a place to lay your head. But just any old bed does not make for a good homey experience. We spend almost ⅓ of our lives in bed. Making the bedroom a comfortable place for leisure and sleep is important. Here are a few things that will help your bedroom feel like a place where you want to be.
A Comfortable Bed
A good quality mattress can be expensive, but it is worth every penny, considering it is one of your most used possessions. A bad mattress can make for poor sleep and a good one can be restorative. If you can’t afford to get the best mattress, you may be able to get a memory foam mattress topper, which will improve your quality of sleep without the full cost of a new mattress.
Nice sheets can make your sleeping experience better. Look for quality materials and a high thread count. Good sheets will get softer and more comfortable with age. They will be a good value because they will last longer was well. For winter, consider flannel sheets, which keep warm and are soft and cozy. You can find a good selection at Steinmart.
Personalize your space with art or family photos. Be sure that the art you choose pleases you emotionally, so it helps engender a feeling of calm and restfulness.
Piles of Pillows
Use decorative throw pillows on your beds. You can mix and match styles, textures and colors for visual interest. The extra pillows can be used to prop yourself up to read a book or watch TV. It will make your bed more inviting.
An Air Purifier
Air quality indoors can often be worse than air quality outdoors. Air purifiers can clean the air that you will be breathing for hours every night. Choose one that has HEPA quality filtration to capture the finest particles of dirt and pollen from the air. Breathing better at night will make for more restorative sleep. You may also find you have less allergies during the day. Newer technology in air purifiers makes them fairly quiet, so they won’t disturb your sleep. In fact, the small amount of white noise generated by the machine may help you drift off to sleep more easily.
Follow these tips and you will have a bedroom that invites you in for a restful and very pleasant night sleep.
