Desired by many, yet achieved by few – the ever elusive good night’s sleep! November is National Sleep Comfort Month, a whole month dedicated to the importance of sleep. Everyone has their own tricks and tips when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep – eat this, drink that, do this, try that – but did you ever consider that the secret to good sleep may be as simple as good design?

Design tips for creating a relaxing bedroom

Calming colors
Did you know that colors actually have sound? Pat Verlodt, president of Color Services & Associates, Inc., says the most common calming colors are blues and greens because they remind us of calming sounds in nature – the ocean, rustling grass, a whispering breeze.

Clear the clutter
Mess=Stress. And stress can interfere with sleep. Your bedroom is for sleeping – if an item does not fit this criteria get it out of the room. This includes exercise equipment, computers, TV, and just plain clutter!

Feng Shui for fabulous sleep
Feng shui in the bedroom promotes a harmonious flow of nourishing and sensual energy. Some feng shui tips to help promote restful sleep include:

  • Choose artwork for your bedroom that features images you want to see happening in your life.
  • Avoid placing your bed in line with any of the doors in your bedroom.
  • You always want to have a solid wall behind your bed. When you sleep under the window, your personal energy tends to get weaker over time, as it has neither proper support, nor protection.

Take a seat
It’s the little details that can make the biggest difference in the comfort of your room. For example, having a chair or place to sit down and take off your shoes can help reduce stress and just make your bedroom a more comfortable place to be.
