If you prefer a more neutral living space, try injecting a small amount of colour with your decorating – pillows, throws and ornaments can really transform the way your bedroom looks.Consider using darker colours such as muted greys, or look at the colours of a sunset for inspiration, as these colours will create the sense of night time in your bedroom.
- A comfy bed makes a world of difference
If the thought of climbing into your own bed at the end of a long day doesn’t make you feel happy, maybe it’s time to invest in a new one. A comfy mattress will transform your night’s sleep, but if this is a little bit out of your price range, a mattress topper makes a great alternative.It is also a good idea to invest in good quality bed linens. A scratchy blanket will keep you up all night, so look for bedding with a high thread count and make sure you purchase new bed linens at least every 2 years to keep your bedroom fresh.

The way your bedroom’s layout is designed can affect how well you sleep. Follow the principles of Feng Shui and begin to reorganise your bedroom to create an optimum sleeping environment. Being able to see the door from your bed will help to relax you as you can see what it coming towards you.
