However, designing it by yourself is not easy if you are not an architect. I believe that with these simple and practical “golden” rules below, you can have a neat and nice bedroom that will help you to improve the quality of your sleep easily and effectively.

Choose Light Colour Tones

What we receive by vision can have a huge impact on our emotions. Therefore, when designing the bedroom, you should give priority to creating a feeling of relaxation by choosing gentle and smooth tones. You can develop the bedroom design with a neutral color palette like light yellow, light grey, pale blue, pastel pink or white.

Put The Bed In A Suitable Position

The way you arrange the furniture in your bedroom will determine the quality of sleep. With space for the rest, place the bed to achieve a peace of mind and the most comfortable feelings. The bed should lean against the wall and the view covers the room but not opposite the main door or window to avoid disturbance when someone moves. Moreover, the bedroom should have a corner facing the main door, the two remaining corner called “angle of air condenser”, which means where the energy accumulated in the mildest way. You should put a bed in this corner that would be easy for you to have a good and deep sleep. You should not put too much stuff around the bed, please make room for some peaceful space, so you can relax and fall asleep more easily.

Do Not Put Tv In The Bedroom

Watching TV before going to sleep may sound very relaxing, but actually it is a trap that would lead you to the “night owls” life. Scientists have proved that the glare and the continuous noise from the TV can slow down the secretion of the hormone melatonin- a hormone that helps us maintain a deep sleep and the rhythm of the biological clock. Therefore, instead of putting a TV on the wall when designing the bedroom, try hanging pictures and reading books to achieve better quality of sleep. 

Create A Green Space

The appearance of plants will help you regenerate energy efficiently, fell relaxed and more creative. But keep in mind not to put too many plants to avoid the lack of oxygen when sleeping. Another way for you is to have fresh flowers and change the flowers regularly to get more lively, refreshing and dreamy feelings.

Leave The Work Outside The Bedroom

The design idea combining resting space and workplace is almost very popular because it offers a sense of convenience, but actually it just makes you more stressful and even affects your sleep. If possible, create a workplace separate from the bedroom and do not bring electronic devices to the bed to avoid being affected by emails and messages. When entering the bedroom, take the time and the whole mind for the rest to get a good sleep.

Buy Goods And Items In Pairs

Experts suggest that even if you live alone, you should also purchase items in your bedroom in pairs: two bedside cabinets, two pillows, two lamps. In the science of Feng Shui, it can promote good energy and feelings of love in your life.

Reduce The Use Of Electronic Devices

In the bedroom, you should restrict the use of electronic devices such as laptops, desktop computers because they will affect your nervous system and sleep quality due to electromagnetic waves from these devices. Devices like phones, tablets also need to be powered off when you go to bed to ensure a good and deep sleep.
