It is important to have a bedroom that makes you feel comfortable. This will improve your overall health. Here’s how to transform your bedroom from a crashpad into a tranquil haven. Here’s how the experts suggest transforming your bedroom from a crashpad into a tranquil haven.
Invest In A Good Mattress
There’s nothing that feels quite like getting into bed every night and lying down on a comfortable mattress to help lull you to sleep. Nine out of 10 Americans do not feel refreshed in the morning. It can retain heat, making it harder to fall asleep or lack support which will increase night awakenings and morning aches and pains,” says Kristen Olson-Turner, Senior Director of Merchandising at Purple.

Purple is a unique company because its mattresses are engineered a bit differently than traditional mattresses. Purple’s GelFlex Grid is a proprietary grid that uses a geometric pattern to cushion comfort. This grid-shaped mattress supports hips and shoulders while adjusting to pressure points. This structure has been shown to reduce aches and pains and prevent heat retention,” says Olsen-Turner.
Purple’s mattresses don’t use box springs but are incredibly thick for a high-up, hotel-like feel. They’re incredibly luxurious.
Buy The Good Sheets
According to Olson-Turner, sheets can be just as important as finding the perfect mattress. It can make a huge difference in your comfort and temperature regulation throughout the night. Consider factors such as the weave and thread count when choosing bed sheets. If you are a hot sleeper you might want to consider linen, Tencel, or percale sheets. They will keep you cool throughout the night. Cold sleepers may want to look for thick sheets that can act as insulators, such as flannel, satin, and combed cotton sheets.”
Adjust The ThermostatSleeping at the right temperature is also essential. The recommended temperature for sleeping is between 66 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Your ideal body temperature depends on many factors including age, gender and personal preferences. “It’s hard to fall asleep if you are too hot or cold, and it’s difficult to stay asleep if you are too hot or cold.” “It’s hard to fall asleep if you’re too hot or cold, and it’s hard to stay asleep if you’re too hot or cold.”One easy way to ensure the temperature in the room is always ideal for sleeping is to get a programable thermostat that can be integrated into your smart home system.
Install Blackout Curtains
Olson-Turner also suggests installing blackout window treatments. Blackout treatments today are much more sophisticated than the old-fashioned white roller shades. Shade Store offers a variety of blackout window treatments, including Roman Shades and Roman Drapes. These treatments can be a part of your decor and elevate the tranquility of the space.
Use Neutral Colors
Neutrals have been a major design trend in recent years. This is for a reason. Your home can either be your stressor, or it can be your sanctuary. It cannot be both. The bedroom is meant to be a peaceful refuge where you can climb into your soft, comfortable bed and breathe a sigh of relief. Joshua Smith, founder and principal of Joshua Smith Inc., says that you should examine your bedroom’s components to achieve this. Scientists have found that vibrant colors can overstimulate us. So, steering clear of bold colors that will keep you energized is a good place to start,” explains the designer.
However, that doesn’t mean everything has to be white or eggshell. Smith suggests blue, green and light pink shades. “No matter what hue you choose, take some time to experiment with color–make your space personal and discover what truly works for you.”
Accessorize With A Rug
Rugs aren’t just a great way to accessorize a bedroom by adding color and texture into a space–there are other benefits as well. “Carpeting your bedroom or adding a soft area rug helps soften any harsh noises like footsteps.” While wall-to-wall carpeting isn’t ideal for most spaces, it can work incredibly well in a bedroom.
Reevaluate The Lighting Scheme
The right lighting is crucial in all rooms but especially bedrooms. Lighting can have a significant impact on how we experience and perceive a space, according to Lauren Lerner. She is the CEO and founder at Living with Lolo. Layering cans, table lamps, and chandeliers in the bedroom creates a soothing atmosphere. We often have to use a ceiling fan in Arizona because it is so hot. So we will add pendants, but always layer with cans. For bedrooms, we always choose a soft white between 2700 and 3000 Kelvin.”
