How to Build a Bedroom That Will Make You Wake Up Happier?

Unsurprisingly, most of us decorate our bedrooms to suit and appeal to our waking senses. We tend to focus on elements that will fulfil our needs when we’re awake, like sufficient lighting, pretty paintings and decorative furniture.


However, it is equally important to consider how they impact us at night as the most important activity that takes place in the bedroom is none other than sleep. On average, we spend about a third of each day sleeping, and it’s essential to make sure we get a chance to rest and recharge well.


Today, we are sharing with you 6 tips that will help you build a cosy and uplifting bedroom.


#1 Paint Colour

When it comes to choosing a paint colour for our bedroom, personal preference or existing colour scheme may play into the colour selection. However, remember that colours do affect our mood. In other words, we should pick colours that will improve the quality of our sleep.

While certain hues make us feel more energetic, some others would have a soothing effect. For example, pale blue shades like sky blue, aqua blue or ice blue can make your room seem larger and airier, further enhancing a calming mood. Green shades are abundant in nature, so it evokes feelings of renewal and growth. Lighter shades of purple like lilac or lavender will help us relieve tension and encourage relaxation.


#2 Mattress Comfort

We all know how awful it feels to have a bad night’s sleep. It leaves us feeling cranky and irritable, simply putting us in a bad mood for the rest of the day. If this situation is prolonged, we may even end up with duller-looking skin and become prone to health issues such as obesity and mood disorders. Thus, we need to get ourselves a comfortable mattress that suits our individual sleeping positions and improves our sleep health.


#3 Storage Solutions

According to studies, cluttered surroundings are often linked to increased stress, anxiety and depression. When there is much clutter accumulated around you, your mind has more to process and will find it harder to relax.


Perhaps it’s time to start decluttering. Take advantage of storage solutions that will help you maintain a clutter-free space and create a tranquillity-inducing atmosphere in your bedroom.


#4 Curtains/Lightings

Natural light is good for us, no doubt, but it has dramatic effects on sleep. Not only does it disrupt our circadian rhythm, which is our internal body clock, but it also impacts our melatonin production, which is the hormone that facilitates sleep and reinforces a stable sleep-wake schedule.


So, dim the lights inside your room in the evening and get some blackout shades or curtains to block out the natural light during the day. These will help you feel cosier as well as increase your sleep quality.


#5 Plants

Green is the colour of life, nature and energy. So, if you want to wake up to fresh and crisp surroundings, bring some living plants into the bedroom! They will brighten up your space, boost your mood, enhance your creativity, reduce your stress levels and increase your productivity. Physically, they help purify the air and absorb some of the air pollutants present in the air.


#6 Add Personalised Decoration

Your bedroom is your ultimate private and personal space where you can temporarily let go of the weight of the world, unwind, relax and just be you. Be free to express your creativity when decorating your bedroom, whether it’s a photo collage, a souvenir or an artwork. Do what makes you happy and surround yourself with items that bring back good memories.
