5 Consejos de una Decoradora para descansar mejor por las noches.

5 Tips from a Decorator to rest better at night.

Sleep is one of the fundamental pillars of our health and well-being. We spend approximately a third of our lives sleeping, so having adequate space to rest becomes essential.

The quality of our sleep is directly related to the environment in which we sleep.

In this article, we'll explore why it's important for people to take care of having a good space for better sleep, and how thoughtful design can transform your bedroom into a restful oasis.

Create a calm and relaxing environment.

The environment in which you sleep can have a significant impact on the quality of your sleep. Opt for soft, calming colors on the walls, such as shades of blue, green, or light gray, which promote calm and serenity.

Avoid bright or intense colors that can generate excitement. Also, choose curtains or blinds that block external light and create a clutter-free space to promote a sense of tranquility.

Choose a comfortable bed and quality bedding.

The bed is the central element of a good rest. Be sure to choose a mattress and pillows that suit your preferences and comfort needs.

Invest in quality bedding, soft to the touch and breathable, opt for natural materials such as cotton or linen, which help regulate body temperature during the night.

Control the lighting.

Light plays a fundamental role in sleep regulation. Install dimmer switches or use dimmable lamps to tailor lighting for different times of day.

Before going to bed, avoid exposure to bright lights, such as those from electronic devices, as they can interfere with the production of melatonin, a hormone needed for sleep.

Create a relaxation routine before bed.

Establishing a relaxing routine before going to bed can prepare your mind and body for rest. You can incorporate activities like reading a book, taking a warm bath, practicing breathing techniques, or doing gentle stretching. Also, avoid using electronic devices at least an hour before bed, as the blue light they emit can interfere with your ability to fall asleep.

Add natural elements and plants.

Natural elements, such as plants, can help create a more relaxing environment in your bedroom. Some plants, such as lavender or valerian, have relaxing and aromatic properties that can promote better sleep. Additionally, you can use essential oils with relaxing fragrances in a diffuser. Likewise, incorporate natural materials into the decoration, such as wood or wicker, to create a feeling of connection with nature.

These recommendations will serve as a starting point, but adjust the decoration to your own tastes to create a space that invites you to rest and relax.

A well thought out interior design can make a difference in the quality of our sleep and how we feel when we wake up each morning.

I hope these tips help you sleep better!
