Rest + Relaxation – Use Neutral Tones For Your Bedroom

A bedroom is a place for rest and relaxation so choose Neutral Colours.

Bright colours are energising and invigorating. While these feelings are great properties for a living room, dining room, or kitchen, they are not appropriate for the bedroom. In a bedroom environment, it is better to choose neutral colours that help promote feelings of restfulness and relaxation. Beige, pale gray, and pastel colours are all excellent choices.

Your decorating should also reflect this.  Apart from your paint colours, the following home decorating tips can also help create a relaxing atmosphere:

Use Soft Lighting
Bedrooms require several sources of light. As well as an overhead light, a relaxing bedroom also contains bedside lamps, which can be used for reading late at night. When choosing bulbs for bedroom lamps, one should always choose bulbs that produce a warm light that is not too bright. A dimming overhead light is useful for creating different moods at different times of the day.

Banish Technology
Many experts agree that technology is the enemy of good sleep. People who choose to have a TV in the bedroom can reduce its impact on their sleep by installing doors to hide the screen. Instead of using a TV right before bed, people can do something less stimulating, such as reading a book. It is also a good idea to choose bedroom clocks that do not give off too much light or make a noise.

Invest in a Comfortable Bed
Naturally, the bed is the focal point of the bedroom. People should invest ample time and money into making the bed as comfortable as possible. Memory foam mattresses can help to improve comfort while sleeping, as they mould themselves to the shape of the body. Some people love the feeling of sinking into luxurious silk or Egyptian cotton sheets, while others need to have plenty of pillows and cushions to feel comfortable. A bed is a very personal item, so it is important for each individual to make it match their specific preferences.

Making the right choices when decorating the bedroom can greatly improve sleep quality and feelings of restfulness. Well-suited colours, window coverings, flooring, and lighting can help to create a peaceful sanctuary for sleeping and relaxing.
