Both physicians and mental health practitioners regularly issue cautions about the importance of getting enough rest. It turns out that sleep is important for both physical and mental health, as well as personal safety.
One of the best ways to ensure a good night’s sleep is to create a bedroom that offers comfort and relaxing decor. Here are some of our favorite cozy bedroom ideas:
Choose the Best Bedding
Good bedding is essential for good sleep. Many people opt to have two sets of bedding: Lighter fabrics for warm weather and heavier options for cold nights. Others prefer to simply layer additional comforters and quilts to address weather changes.
Choosing the right bedsheets is often critical to overall comfort. This is because top and bottom sheets come in direct contact with your skin. We love sheets made from moisture wicking bamboo: Soft, luxurious and environmentally sustainable, bamboo sheets offer year-round comfort.
Silk pillowcases are another favorite. They look and feel wonderful, while also offering real benefits to your skin and hair. As you move around at night, the delicate skin on your face and neck glides over silk fabric, minimizing tugs and pulls that, over time, damage your skin. In addition, silk is less drying to your hair and offers protection against breakage.
Create a Beautiful Bedroom
Comfort is important, but so is visual appeal. Whether you prefer colorful bedding or crisp white or pastel linens, take some time to coordinate a beautiful sleep space. Layering your bed with soft throw pillows and even a faux fur throw blanket creates an inviting atmosphere.
Other things to consider are wall decorations as well as lighting and even furniture. Taking the same care and decorating a bedroom as you would a living room or kitchen can have a significant impact on the quality of your sleep.
