How to Upgrade Your Bedroom in 2021

Getting enough quality sleep is essential for staying healthy. Your sleep quality has a massive impact on how you feel, and everything feels better after a great night’s sleep. However, to get a restful night’s sleep, it is crucial to create the right bedroom environment.  If your room no longer suits your needs, you are getting poor sleep due to your sleep environment, or you simply want to update your space, then the new year is the perfect time to upgrade your bedroom.  Upgrading your bedroom is an exciting opportunity to create your ideal sleep environment. Working on both the aesthetic and practical elements of the upgrade will make a room that feels restful and looks fantastic, helping you to achieve impressive and lasting results.  Check out these tips to help you transform your bedroom into the ideal place to relax and sleep.

Refresh Your Walls

The difference that a fresh coat of paint can make to your room is pretty amazing. Simply repainting can completely change the vibe of an entire bedroom. Painting your walls is also an affordable option for redecorating and often far less expensive than using wallpapers.  According to interior design experts, the on-trend colors for 2021 will mainly include neutral shades. This is good news, as neutral shades work perfectly to bring a calming vibe to bedrooms.

Change Your Mattress

Your mattress has a significant influence on many aspects of your sleep. Having a poor quality mattress can lead to disturbed sleep, aches and pains, and could even prevent you from getting any good sleep at all.  Finding a mattress that perfectly suits your needs will help you to avoid these issues. Choosing a custom mattress is the best option to ensure that your mattress meets your exact requirements and provides optimum comfort and support.

New Bedding

Changing your bedding may not have such a dramatic effect on your sleep as a new custom mattress, but it can enhance your bedroom. Choosing a new duvet, and buying new sheets and pillowcases is a great way to revamp your bedroom and increase your comfort. Looking for new bedding that matches your color scheme is an excellent way to get your bedroom looking trendy and updated without spending a fortune.

Switch to New Lighting

Many people forget about the importance of having the right light in their bedrooms. Choosing lighting options that suit your needs helps improve your sleep and make your room a more relaxing space. A harsh, bright ceiling light, is not going to help prepare you for sleep each night, especially if you need to get out of bed to turn it on and off. Why not switch to a bedside lamp which gives off a softer light, and allows you to adjust the light from the comfort of your bed? You could also consider lighting with a dimming switch, or a remote that allows you to adjust the lighting from your bed. With today’s technology, there are even options for voice-controlled lighting that are inexpensive and accessible.

Control the Temperature

If your room is too hot, it can be nearly impossible to get to sleep. Your bedroom needs to be cool enough to allow you to get good quality sleep. The recommended temperature for a bedroom is 65°F (18.3°C), any hotter than this and you could struggle to sleep. If your bedroom gets hot at night, you may want to bring a fan into the room. You can also upgrade your ceiling light to a ceiling fan if your room is still not getting cool enough. Using a fan should help you to enjoy a restful night’s sleep at a comfortable temperature.

Add New Curtains

Getting new curtains will not only help you to upgrade the look of your room, but it could also improve your sleep. Ensuring that your bedroom is dark at nighttime and as the sun rises in the morning can make a vast difference to how easily you fall asleep and stay asleep.  Blackout curtains are an excellent way to keep your room dark and optimal for sleep. Using blackout curtains can also help to keep the room cool if you close them before the hottest part of the day.  If you want to add an extra touch of style to your bedroom, you could use a combination of both sheer curtains and blackout curtains to combine both stylish and practical window coverings. A fresh coat of paint, a new custom luxury mattress, and some new bedding will help you achieve the perfect bedroom upgrade and get your new year off to a comfortable, restful start.
