Sleep is vital to our health and wellbeing, and the effects of not having enough sleep can be catastrophic for our mental and physical fitness. Many people struggle to get enough sleep in their daily lives, and this is often because they go to bed too late or are disturbed throughout the night. However, there are several steps you can take to make your bedroom a better environment for good sleep.
Here at Direct Blinds, we know that the blinds and window dressings you choose can have a direct effect on the comfort and practicality of your home. We can help you to choose the right window solutions for every room, and we have a wide range of styles and designs so that you can match your window coverings to the style of your home.
Create A Bedroom That Helps You To Sleep
1. Block out the light. It is much easier to sleep in a room that is dark, because this naturally lets your body know that it is time to rest. Blackout blinds, such as our BlocOut roller blinds are designed to block out the light so that your bedroom becomes a relaxing space for sleep, and you can choose from a variety of attractive colours and designs.
2. Keep the temperature constant. Your room should be cool, but not cold, in order to promote good sleep. A blind that blocks the sunlight from the room during the day but prevents too much heat loss when it is cold outside will be ideal for maintaining a constant temperature within your bedroom and avoiding extremes of hot or cold that could keep you awake in the night.
3. Consider colour. Think about how the decor in your bedroom affects your mood. Some colours, such as bright reds and yellows, are associated with activity and upbeat moods, but shades of blue or green tend to create a more relaxing space that is conducive to relaxation and sleep.
4. Banish technology. The way in which you use your bedroom can change the way it feels dramatically. Studies show that electronic devices in the bedroom can be very disruptive to sleep, especially if the bedroom is a space associated with working. Moving all electronic devices to another room and introducing rugs and blankets to create a peaceful, tranquil space can set you up for a much better night.
