Sweet Dreams – Creating an Ideal Bedroom

One third of a person's life is spent asleep, so ensuring that the bedroom is a comfortable and relaxing environment is extremely important. When redecorating a house, the bedroom is often forgotten as it's not usually seen by visitors, making a good impression on guests is mistakenly prioritised over comfort. This is daft when it's considered that a lumpy mattress will cause more grief in the long run than a lumpy sofa.

The wrong atmosphere in the bedroom can literally cause sleepless nights, tailoring the most important room in the house so that it's a relaxing haven means that a good night's sleep will be easily aided, and a good night’s sleep means a good day's work. Keeping the bedroom as a separate room for sleep means that it needs to be decorated specifically for the task.

Removing as much technology from a room as possible will create a calmer environment than if there's a TV, Xbox and telephone all plugged in. Try to keep distractions such as these out so that the bedroom is just a place for rest. Rather than sitting in bed watching TV watch it downstairs and then, when you do go up to bed, your subconcious will know time for sleep is approaching and you'll automatically start relaxing long before climbing between the sheets.

Talking of the bedding go for natural fabrics. Cotton is a clear winner, although silk can offer another natural and soft option. Change sheets and bedding regularly, at least once a week, to ensure that lovely clean sheet feeling as often as possible. In winter, go one step further and slip an electric blanket under the bottom sheet and enjoy the delight of a pre-warmed bed.

Obviously though, choosing the best bed is the key factor. Select either a frame or divan style that's at the best height for getting in an out – a littler person doesn't want to be clambering to get in and out and a taller person won't appreciate hoisting themselves up and down. Don't forget that the mattress will affect the finished overall height too. In fact, the mattress is probably the most important thing to consider.

Selecting the firmness of a mattress is easier than ever with the range of spring or memory foam mattresses now available. A winning compromise for most people is a spring mattress with a memory foam topper. The mattress is not the item to cut corners on, visit a specialist dealer such as Cosy Mattress and ensure that the most important third of a person's life is spent in the best way possible: in comfort.
