Choose Dreamy Hues

Did you know that calming paint colors like blue and green can help lower blood pressure and improve sleep? Surprisingly, however, traditionally popular bedroom hues, purple and brown, have been shown to stimulate the brain and decrease sleep by up to two hours! 

Kick Clutter

Cluttered room = cluttered mind. Not only does decluttering make your space look better, it can help you sleep better as well. Follow the melon rule: To prevent a cluttered look, only decorate with items larger than a melon.

Go Tech-Free

Reserve binge-watching for the living room and replace your bedroom TV with a tapestry, decorative mirror or pretty piece of art.

Layer Window Treatments

Control temperature + reduce light and noise by dressing bedroom windows in layered treatments. In this cozy space, a bamboo roman shade is flanked by decorative floor-length curtains that can be pulled close to block light. Hang curtains all the way to the ceiling to ensure maximum coverage.

Set the Mood With Lighting

Swap bright overhead lighting for soft, low-light lamps or shaded pendants. Lavender-scented candles are also great for ultimate zzz’s.

Add a Plant (or Two)

Popular house plants like spider plants, aloe vera and snake plants are more than just pretty. They act as air purifiers, emitting oxygen at night to significantly boost your quality of sleep. More air-purifying houseplants >>

Upsize Your Rug

Even if you have carpet, a bedroom rug can add sleep-inducing warmth and color. For a designer look, choose a large rug that extends 1-1 1/2 feet out from the sides and front of your bed, with the top aligning just below your pillows.
