You may be surprised to hear that one third of people in the UK struggle with sleep in some form. Whether it's insomnia, waking up in the night or sleeping too much, we've all suffered from it at one point or another. And did you know that our interior design has a huge part to play in helping us get a better night sleep? So in this post we'll be explaining how to sleep better at home to help you feel the best you.
Introduce Natural Materials
It's been scientifically proven that being surrounded by natural materials like wood, stone, glass, marble etc can relax us. It's the subconscious connection to nature that makes us think calming thoughts & helps us feel at one with nature. Try introducing wooden furniture into your bedroom so the sight of it relaxes you before bed. We love the Wexler Glass Topped Bedside Table which would be the perfect addition to any calming bedroom scheme.
Use Calming Colours
Colour psychology can have a huge impact on our wellbeing & drastically effect how we can get to sleep. In light of this, in the bedroom, use muted hues or neutral tones that don't jar or stimulate the brain. Avoid using energising colours like yellows or oranges as these could have a negative effect on the psyche causing you to feel more awake. We love this Teos Table Lamp as it's neutral tones would fit perfectly into a relaxing bedroom scheme.
Keep A Worry Diary At The Bedside
Psychologists say that many of us suffer with poor sleep or insomnia due to our daily stresses & worries that affect us at the end of the day. In light of his, keep a notepad & pen by your bed. Whenever a worrying thought pops into your head before bed, write it down. It's been proven that this can rid our minds of daily stresses and produce a deeper sleep.
