Sleeping is one of the most important parts of the day for a human being. Rest is vital for us as the body heals and repairs itself while we sleep. During sleep, your body works to maintain healthy brain function and enhance your physical health. How well you sleep also depends on your surroundings and the environment where you choose to sleep. The way we decorate our bedroom plays an important role in determining how well we sleep and how deep of a sleep it is.
Each color is significant in its own way
Blue is proved to be the best color to put you to sleep. Studies have shown that people tend to fall asleep faster and for longer when sleeping in bedrooms decorated in this color. Another color proven to be beneficial for sleeping patterns is yellow. Keep in mind that this isn’t the “bright neon” version we are talking about but the subtler “buttery warm creamy color with tinges of yellow”. Yet another color that helps with sleep is orange; orange represents determination and creativity and once you’ve painted your room this zest color you can expect to get around 7 and a half hours of sleep every night.
Give your bedroom a new look
Decorating simply your bedroom isn’t enough, however; for maximum effects, your bedding has to be designed with this color as well. Now, taking into account the colors given above and their benefits, southwestern bedding comes to mind. Southwestern bedding comes in rustic color schemes and patterns that almost always seem to feature light yellows, both dark and light blues and oranges. This would seem to be a perfect fit for those looking to redecorate their bedrooms and go for something that would facilitate them getting better rest.
The color of the bedding is definitely important but the bedding itself matters too. It is advisable to buy hypoallergenic pillows, silky tree fiber sheets in a soothing color, a natural comforter made of duck or goose feathers or down (however if you’re allergic then there are synthetic options that are equally good) and a silk duvet cover. The scent of your bed plays a small role in helping you sleep as well. It is recommended that you spray your pillow covers with a scent that helps you fall asleep; lavender is always a good choice. Medicated mattresses are always the way to go as they prevent back problems and are sure to provide you with a good night’s sleep.
Your bedroom is a private space where you go to rest and recuperate and hence it should always be decorated to serve that purpose most efficiently.
