Living in the modern world is unlike anything humans have ever experienced in the past. The experience of constantly being connected to our electronic devices and having to work beyond the daylight hours cause our stress levels to skyrocket. But work is an aspect of our lives that we can hardly avoid. The best way to mitigate the effects of stress is to try to change our lifestyles to reduce their impact on us.
You might think about regular exercise and meditation when you think of stress reduction methods. But did you know that your interior design can also help reduce stress in your life? It’s important to keep in mind certain interior decor tips when planning your bedroom as this is where you go to unwind at the end of the day. Here’s how you can achieve nighttime nirvana.
Use Light Tones And Natural Colours
Light colours will create an uplifting mood inside your bedroom. Using light shades will have a soothing effect on your mind. Darker colours can have an oppressive effect. When you use darker colours, keep their use to a minimum, and only use them for accenting. You can use a pop of bright colour to introduce an element of interest into an otherwise monotonous room. Having a white bedroom can be conducive to sleep. Try to create contrasts with the colours of your furniture. Natural, earthy tones can complement a white background without making the room look boring.
Keep The Clutter To A Minimum
Cramming your bedroom full of furniture can end up cramming your thoughts. Apply a minimalist decor to your bedroom to reduce stress. The most effective design consists of a bed, a nightstand, and a small sitting area. You can buy bedroom furniture online, where many websites will let you design a demo.
Some people choose to do away with electronics in the bedroom. This can mean replacing your TV with a pile of books. You can also keep sleep inducing tea on your table. Try to separate your spaces based on function. This means that the dressing area should be separate from the sleeping area.
Make Full Use Of Natural Light
Being cut off from natural light can disturb your body’s sleep cycle. It can disrupt melatonin production, which can further raise your stress levels. When designing your bedroom, try to use as much natural light as possible. You can do this by hanging lace curtains, which let in filtered natural light. If you lack adequate windows, putting in windows can create the illusion of roominess by amplifying natural light.
Keep Plants That Purify The Air
Certain plants in the bedroom purify the air by removing toxins from the environment. Some species release oxygen all night long, which can vastly improve the quality of your sleep. Keeping these plants in your bedroom will ensure that you are well-rested, which will in turn reduce your level of stress.
Keeping these tips in mind when decorating your bedroom will let you sleep better at night. You are going to wake up feeling refreshed. You’ll be ready to take on the day and live a life without stress.
Until next time ♡
