Hiiii everyone and welcome to a guest post by my favorite home decor guru, Chloe! Miss Chloe has been featured on my page quite a few times and it is always such a treat to have her. Take a look at her latest post, where she will help you create a perfectly styled and sleep worthy bedroom:
Make Your Bedroom Stylish and Sleep-Friendly:
The quality of your sleep can highly influence your energy levels, mood, and productivity during the day. In that respect, the way you decorate and organize your sleep chamber can be of immense importance when it comes to providing yourself with a good night of rest. If you’re experiencing trouble sleeping, make sure to take a good look at your bedroom. Its design may be the key for your perfect comfort.
1. Is there a lot of clutter?
There has been plenty of research on the negative influence of clutter on the human mind and this can be especially obvious in the bedroom. This is a place where you need to relax and drift off to a dream land and clutter can only cause problems. The first and easiest thing that you can do is to create a chore list so that you can keep your bedroom neat and tidy. That way, you will prevent mental pressure and stress caused by your own personal environment.
Also, is there a cat?
2. Do you have enough space?
This step is linked to the clutter issue. Sometimes, it’s not enough to simply tidy up your bedroom. If you don’t have room for all of your stuff, the first thing that you should do is declutter. This means that apart from putting everything in its respective place, you should also get rid of things that you don’t need.
If you have clothes that you haven’t worn for more than six months, it’s probably wise to give them away. On the other hand, your problem might be related to the lack of storage. Make sure to utilize your wardrobe doors to the fullest. What’s more, wall cabinets can really come in handy in a bedroom and if you take the time to match them to the overall aesthetics, you can create a really pleasant atmosphere.

3. Do you enjoy the color scheme?
You may not even be aware of just how much the choice of colors can influence your ability to relax and fall asleep. In general, you should introduce colors that feel pleasant to you into your bedroom. But, this doesn’t mean that you should go overboard with vibrant shades and intricate patterns.
A stylish and functional bedroom should feature soothing tones and hues. You should also keep things relatively minimal when color combos are concerned. The best way to achieve a nice, calming look is to opt for a soft wall shade, an equally soft, warm shade for furniture, and then spice things up just a little with slightly bolder colors for sheets, covers, and cushions.
4. Do you feel comfortable?
The appearance of your bedroom is not the only thing that has effect on your sleep. There are also some technical questions that need to be dealt with. For example, if your lighting is too bright and strong, you will struggle more to relax and drift off to sleep. This is especially true for those of you who like to read or check your smartphones in bed.
Make sure to use mood lighting and, if possible, install dimmer switches. Air quality is another essential factor ensuring you a proper sleep schedule. If dust bothers you or you suffer from seasonal allergies, you should install a quality air purifier for allergies in your bedroom. Not only will this improve your sleep but the quality of your lifestyle altogether, too.
5. Is the decor pleasing?
The bedroom is the most intimate area of one’s home but that doesn’t mean that you should overload it with personal decor and other sentimental bits and pieces. On the contrary, it is said that you should avoid using photographs of your friends and family and go for soothing scenery paintings, instead. A scented candle, plants, warm rugs, and interesting curtains are perfectly fine, but anything more than that can actually disrupt your sleep schedule and prevent you from dozing off properly.
Remember, you don’t need too much stuff or color for your bedroom to be stylish and cozy. By keeping things relatively minimal yet sticking to your personal taste, you’ll be able to enjoy a good night of rest and wake up motivated for a new day, every day.
