Bedroom Revamp Tips For A Good Night's Sleep

Sunday, July 16, 2017


Sleep is very important. At the moment, the evenings are longer and the nights are hotter, making it hard for some to sleep properly.

The bedroom is one of the most important rooms in the home, and it's an essential part of getting a good night's sleep. Revamping and adding your own personal touch is great for a cosy, comfortable and peaceful bedroom.

Here are some top tips for revamping your bedroom for a good night's sleep.

Get rid of technology.
The bedroom is a room that is designated for sleep and not much else. Technology and various gadgets (televisions, mobile phones, tablets, laptops, computers, games consoles, etc) are extremely distracting and can have a detrimental effect on sleep, so get rid of them. First of all, move the TV and desktop computer out of the bedroom. Secondly, switch off all electronic devices two hours before you go to bed. If you're used to using your laptop/mobile phone/tablet in bed before you fall asleep then substitute it for something else (i.e. a physical copy of a book or the music on the radio.)

Add a lamp.
Lighting is important but some types of lighting create a certain sense of ambience within the room, which will help your mind to relax. You can add a lamp or a set of fairy lights to create the desired effect.

(Be aware though: fairy lights are flammable so take extra precaution.)



Set up a study room/workspace area/office space outside of the bedroom.
As I mentioned before, the bedroom should be a place for sleeping and not much else. If possible, then try to create and set up a study area or work space outside of the bedroom. Currently, I work and sleep in the same room, but once I get my own place I will set up my own office space.


Pick a colour scheme.
Pick a colour scheme that is calming and soothing. The best theme to go for is a minimalist theme with pops of colour.

Invest a high quality mattress.
One of the reasons why people struggle to get a good night's sleep is because they have a mattress that is too old and/or is of poor-quality. A fresh new mattress that adjusts to the shape of your body is much better. If you want to purchase a new mattress then order one with Leesa with my discount offer.

Get some new duvet covers.
Sometimes it's good to change things up and it's quite refreshing. Adding new duvet covers along with other bedding can create a really cosy bedroom and can make your room look really nice. I normally buy my duvet covers from Next, Marks and Spencer and Primark, but The Yorkshire Linen and Co. has some pretty duvet covers too, with various colours, prints and patterns to match your style and preferences, and they are of the highest quality too.




Wash your sheets.
For hygiene purposes it's important to wash your bedsheets regularly. It's also a nice way to freshen them up and make them smell nice. Clean sheets means a better mind for sleep. I normally wash my sheets every fortnight. It's a lot of work but it's worth it - I love the smell of fresh sheets and fabric conditioner!

Change the curtains.


Not only are curtains important for privacy, they are also important for keeping light out of a room as this can distract you from your sleep. Plus, they are a decorative feature for your bedroom. Curtains can become quite dated and dirty after some time so make sure you clean them and dust them down regularly, and after a significant period of time make sure you buy some new ones to freshen up the place. Alternatively, you can invest in blinds instead (I prefer blinds over curtains.)

Add some fragrances.
A bedroom should smell nice at all times, including the nighttime. Add scented candles and reed diffusers to add a touch of fragrance and pleasant aromas. Many brands and retailers sell scented candles. I like to buy sweet-smelling and floral-scented reed diffusers from Primark, which sells a variety of scents and they are really affordable.

(When using scented candles proceed with caution. Blow them out before you fall asleep. Also, depending on your housing situation, you may or may not be allowed candles in your place of residence.)



Add decorative pieces.
Add some personality to your bedroom: photographs, wall art, flowers, quirky objects, cushions, inspirational posters, etc.

Spring clean and declutter.
A clean room equals a clean mind. On a regular basis, spring clean and get rid of the items you don't need. Your bedroom is so much better off when it's tidy and free from clutter, and that applied to your state of mind too.

  1. Great points! I thought about most of these last year and committed to keeping the TV and study space outside my room. My room is strictly for rest/sleep and I've designed it that way now. Makes a huge difference!
