At Victor Shade, we’re looking forward to the end of winter and welcoming the new spring. Since we have a bit longer to wait yet, let us start preparing now, starting with our bedrooms!
Bedrooms are a safe and cozy space where we can relax, and we spend about one-third of our lives sleeping. So why not make the most of it and keep a bedroom we want to spend time in? Here are a few tips to refresh your bedroom in preparation for spring:
A clean bedroom will go a long way in refreshing both body and mind. When our rooms are cluttered, it creates a much harder space for us to fall asleep in. Then when we wake up in the morning, we’re tired and much more likely not to want to clean, leading to a vicious cycle.
Make a schedule to keep your bedroom free of clutter and have a place for everything. For example, make sure clothes get put away whenever you do your laundry. Instead of knick-knacks scattered haphazardly on your side table, get a little tray for them and think about what you need at your bedside.
Get New Bed Sheets And Rotate Your Mattress
You’d be surprised at how much new bedsheets and a rotated mattress can refresh our bedrooms and help us get a better night’s sleep. Fresh sheets feel nicer than old, worn-out ones and add a desirable pop of color.
Rotating your mattress helps protect it from premature damage and that “you”-shaped sag that can develop over time. This sagging can also put a lot of pressure on your joints, making you feel achy in the morning.
Update Your Window Treatments For A Better Night’s Sleep
When we sleep at night, our rooms should be dark. This helps promote a healthy circadian rhythm and prevents health problems like insomnia. Room darkening shades are a great way to keep your room private and dark at night while improving the aesthetic through various colors and patterns. Room darkening shades come in a wide variety of styles to match your home, like roller shades, roman shades, or honeycomb shades. Some options include:
- Silhouette A Duex®
- Vignette Roman Shades®
- Silhouette Duolite®
Many of these room darkening shades can also be motorized so you can set when they open and close.
