Your bedroom is where you spend a significant part of your time, so you need to create a space that's peaceful, calm, and attractive. From the most soothing paint colors to lighting, bedding, temperature, and aromatherapy, there are many things you can do to build up your sleep environment. Here we have for you some ideas to make your bedroom a relaxing oasis.

Clean it up

The first step and one of the most important ones to encourage relaxation and calm is for you to make sure your space is clean. This helps your senses not to be overwhelmed by a mess of laundry and dust.

Make sure your dressers, nightstands, ceiling fan blades, and every other surface is clean, so you're not breathing in dust. Clear the cobwebs and clean the floor. Keep your bed sheets and blankets clean.

Declutter

Decluttering your bedroom is the perfect way to make sure you're not visually distracted from relaxing in your bedroom. Remember, chaos in your home can create chaos in your mind, which doesn't lead to a good night's sleep.

Sort through all of your room's items and consider which ones are of actual value and which items are just taking up valuable space in your home. Find a new place for the stuff you didn't find useful. Your goal here is to have a minimal number of possessions in your view and your space.

Clear your dresser top and bedside table and leave only the essentials and a few sentimental or decorative items. Sort through your closet and drawers, and donate all the clothes, shoes, and accessories that no longer fit, or you haven't used in a while, and are in good shape.

Don't clutter your walls with pictures or ornaments but hang a few pieces of art or photos that bring back good memories.

Cool colors

Paint your bedroom walls in calm, soothing colors, which are known for helping you relax.

Pick up a color wheel from a store, or you can also find a color wheel online. This wheel will help you identify primary, tertiary and other colors and their relationships with one another. It's an essential tool in picking wall colors and complementing decor colors for furniture, decoration, and accessories or less dominant walls.

When it comes to your bedroom walls, take into consideration cool colors, which promote a calm, peaceful, soothing feeling. Some cool colors include blues, blue-greens, purples, and lavenders.

Blue and green are perfect colors when it comes to creating a relaxing space. Blue is a calming, serene color that helps you re-balance and clear your mind after a long stressful day. Blue also helps you lower your blood pressure and steady your breathing. On the other hand, green hues invite an aura of prosperity and relaxing restoration. Green hues coax mind-clearing, composing, restful feelings. These are significant aspects to help you fall asleep or unwind. You can warm cool colors by adding warm-colored accents like pillows or wall art.

Cooldown

Cooldown the nighttime temperature in your bedroom for a more comfortable and deeper sleep. Overheating is one of the most common complications to have a restful sleep.

According sleep experts, they have concluded through research that the ideal sleeping temperature is somewhere around 65 degrees. If your room is too warm, it can cause you to not have a good night sleep because it doesn't align with your body's natural dip in temperature.

Try testing with the nighttime temperature in your bedroom until you find the perfect match.

You can also try to layer your bedding so you can easily adjust your temperature throughout the night. You don't want to wake up to change the blanket entirely.

Choose a good pillow and keep it smelling fresh

Your pillow plays a really important role in how well you will sleep at night. You need one with support and one will align with your preferred sleep position. Some people prefer a firm pillow while some others sleep best on a softer one. Your pillow might also be far beyond its life expectancy. Experiment to find the perfect pillow for you. 

Choose the right pajamas

Having the perfect pair of pajamas is essential for your relaxation. Find pajamas that let you move freely. Textiles and materials can make a big difference in helping you get a good rest, too.

When it comes to fabrics, some prefer silky nightwear, while others love to snuggle in soft cotton. Cotton is breathable, lightweight, and cozy. It also doesn't irritate your skin. Silk will help you regulate your body temperature, but real silk requires dry-cleaning and slips around while you sleep. Flannel is comfortable and helps you stay toasty on cold nights.  There are other fabrics like bamboo, fleece, and wool. Before taking a decision, try looking into all of them.

Prep your bedside table

Once you're in tucked in, you don't want to be getting out of bed to get something that's not there. Make sure you prep your bedside table to have everything you may need during the night. This may include a variety of things like lip balm, body cream, an alarm, a cell phone charger, a glass of water, or a noise machine to block out noises.

Treat your senses

Try to add some sensory experiences in your bedroom that help you focus on the physical comforts your bedroom has to offer. Focusing on these can help your mind set into the present and make a difference in your mindset and mood.

Add a subtle, pleasant smell to your space. Inhaling the aromas of essential oils or aromatherapy can help improve your feeling of well-being, reducing your anxiety and stress levels. Try these essential oils in a diffuser: lavender, chamomile, jasmine, rose, and vanilla; they promote relaxation.

Add a few battery-operated candles in your bedroom; the flickering can bring you some soothing and relaxation.

Wrap yourself in something soft

Look for soft sheet sets with a high thread count. Remember, the higher the thread count is, the more luxurious feeling you will get. This can really make a difference in your sleeping experience. If your sheets aren't soft on your skin, you won't sleep as well as if they were. Experiment with different materials so you can find what works best for you. Some people love sleeping on satin or silky fabrics, while others find them too slippery.

Look for luxurious soft blankets that match your local weather. If you're in a cold climate, winter nights can be chilly, so choose a down comforter or something that holds your heat well. If you're in warmer weather, seek a lighter but velvety-soft blanket that breathes and doesn't trap air. Try more lightweight blankets – you can cast aside a layer if you become too warm.

Select a good mattress

Look for a good quality mattress as your sleep surface.  Consider that if your body is not supported well, you will toss and turn and wake up with back aches and pains.

Create a playlist

Soft music will help you ease your day's worries and lull you to sleep. Try searching for gentle, soothing music or guided meditation videos.

Reach for a book 

Keep your favorite books nearby. Something is relaxing about reading a good book; it helps your brain no longer spin with your daily activities or challenges.

Create a “no work zone”

Your bedroom is a place where you should be able to disconnect from the outside world. The less you work in your bedroom, the better you will perform the following day. Promise yourself you won't work in your bedroom or look at your electronics when it's time for bed, and at least an hour before. Your goal with this is to calm your brain down and focus on relaxing.

Invite light and nature into your space

Light and nature are essential elements to incorporate into your home and bedroom to encourage relaxation as you prepare for sleep. Until you're ready for bed, let all the natural light possibly come through and look for breathing bedroom plants and flowers to add to your bedroom. They help clean the air of toxins and produce oxygen.

If you need to sleep longer in the mornings, try adding darkening blinds to your windows. Having a darkened room will help you sleep longer and more peacefully.

Crystals and calming stones

Try adding some crystals and calming stones to your decor. Calming stones act as a physical object to create a ritual around to keep your mind focused. Some of the most efficient stones to help you relax are: Some of the most calming, stress-relieving stones are:

  • Amethyst
  • Angelite
  • Black tourmaline 
  • Blue lace agate
  • Celestite 
  • Fluorite
  • Lepidolite
