Need to Make Your Bedroom More Restful? Use These 5 Tips

Your bedroom should be the most restful room in your home. It's where you retreat after a long day, escape from the noise and busy-ness of a full house, and catch all your Zs to recharge. When you step into your bedroom, it should feel warm and welcoming. Use these five tips to get the most out of your owner's suite.

Need to Make Your Bedroom More Restful? Use These 5 Tips

Check out these five ways you can make your bedroom more restful:

  1. Use all the right colors
  2. Remember the "fifth wall"
  3. Put the kibosh on phone and computer screens
  4. Choose natural fibers
  5. Use the space under your bed

Here's a closer look at each. 

Bedroom Tip #1: Use all the right colors

Pick a monochromatic color palette for your bedroom, and stay away from bright colors that will kick your brain into high gear. Try colors like blue, green and lavender, which help you feel calm, or choose browns and other earthy tones to help make your space cozier and warmer.

Bedroom Tip #2: Remember the "fifth wall"

The fifth wall in a bedroom (and in every other room) is the ceiling, but most people leave it out when they're designing things. Painting your ceiling can change the entire room's look, so it's often a good idea to pick a color that's a shade or two lighter than your walls.

Bedroom Tip #3: Put the kibosh on phone and computer screens

Research has shown that using your phone before you drift off is bad for sleep, but that goes for televisions and computer screens, too. If you must keep your laptop in your bedroom, close it - and think about foregoing the TV altogether. You can place a large mirror or a beautiful piece of art where the television used to be.

Bedroom Tip #4: Choose natural fibers

Natural fibers, such as cotton, linen and bamboo, can help you get a better night of sleep. These fabrics are breathable, unlike their satiny and silky counterparts, which means you'll most likely get better rest. The best part? You don't have to sacrifice style for comfort; there are plenty of fabulous options available.

Bedroom Tip #5: Use the space under your bed

Storage is at a premium in bedrooms, so don't neglect the space beneath your bed. You can slide storage boxes beneath it, and use them for shoes, off-season clothing and items that clutter your closets and drawers. Add a dust ruffle to the bottom of your bed and it's like the space isn't even there.
