Designing Your Bedroom to Get a Better Night’s Sleep

April 30, 2021

Having a hard time getting a good night’s rest? It may be partly due to how your bedroom is designed. There are some simple things you can do right now to change up your bedroom to help you get a better night’s sleep.

Dark Colors

You may prefer brighter paint colors in the living spaces you spend your day in, but your bedroom is the place where you should consider something a bit darker. We aren’t saying you should paint your walls black, but some darker blues might have more of a calming effect on you compared to walls painted white.


The lights we have in our room can play a role in our ability to fall asleep as well. As opposed to bright lights that illuminate the room, opt for warmer colored lights that are softer on the eyes when it’s time to wind down. You can also try using darker lamp shades to decrease the amount of light given off by your lightbulbs.

Window Treatments

Most people close their blinds at night for privacy and to block out any light that could shine through your window. However, when you want to sleep in later than the sunrise, you may want to consider using blackout curtains. This will keep your room darker than conventional blinds or curtains so you can have a sounder sleep without the sun or bright lights waking you up too early.

Remove Clutter

Do you ever have a hard time focusing on tasks when your house is messy? Having a cluttered bedroom can have the same effect on your sleeping habits. By keeping your room clean and having an organized space for each of your items, you won’t be anxious thinking about your cluttered bedroom when it’s time to go to bed.


Last but not least, your room should be comfortable. If you are waking up with back pain or feel like you’re tossing and turning to get cozy, it may be time to invest in a new mattress. While you’re at it, you might as well buy bedding that makes you feel comfortable too. To add to the comfort level in your room, get a rug to lay on the floor so you have a soft surface to walk on.
