Leather Gallery: Design Your Bedroom For Improved Health
Winter is in full swing and we’re experiencing heavy rainfall and drops in temperature in many parts of the country. To ensure that your bedroom is a safe, healthy space this winter, there are a few things that you should consider. As a start, be sure to surround yourself with good quality materials and a good, clean atmosphere.
Your bedroom is where you will rejuvenate your body and mind through the night. If your environment is not clean and healthy your body may suffer. Toxins may come from your furniture, the paint on your walls, synthetic bedding as well as rugs and cleaning materials. These toxins can be absorbed through the air we breathe and even through the skin! Therefore, it is important to do your research on the materials used in your home.
Today we are sharing five easy ways to design your bedroom for improved health and wellbeing.
Choose Cleaner Air
How do we go about creating cleaner air in our bedrooms? There are a number of ways to get the job done well. Firstly, invest in an air purifier to remove toxins and introduce freshness into your space. An essential oil misting diffuser is perfect in the bedroom. This can help to create a space that smells luxurious and inviting, but is also clean and purified. Misting diffusers further add a bit of humidity to the air which is ideal for winter bedrooms where we all need more humidity in our heated-dry-air-winter-homes. To get a good night’s rest, add a few drops of lavender essential oil to your essential oil misting diffuser – lavender is great to calm the nervous system and prepare the body for better rest.
You can also add air purifying plants to your bedroom for a burst of greenery and freshness. Plants absorb Co2 in the air and can help to keep your air cleaner for longer.
5 Top Air-Purifying Plants include:
1 Devil’s Ivy (Epipremnum aureum)
2 Dwarf Date Palm (Phoenix Roebelenii)
3 Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum)
5 Spider Plant (Chlorophytum comosum)
Create A Cosier, Organic Bedroom
Organic materials on the bed can actually promote better rest and improved health. While you may not be able to swap your whole mattress, you can swap out your bedding and materials to make the transition easier. Organic cotton or hemp bedding are much healthier to sleep in. We therefore suggest that you invest in good quality, organic bedding that will lead to a healthier way of life.
Declutter Your Room
An organized, tidy and clean room can totally shift your mood. If your room is cluttered and untidy, it can therefore help to clutter your mind and affect your thought life, even if this is subconscious.
Try to remove anything that is not necessary or related to the bedroom. You may be working from home at the moment, but ensure that your bedroom remains a sacred space. This means no paperwork, electronics, children’s toys or anything else that you may have lying around.
Another good habit is to put your laundry away immediately. Don’t let things pile up and add to a cluttered look.
Create a Designated Space For Everything
Storage is crucial in the bedroom. You’ll need space to store your belongings, keep things orderly and create a streamlined aesthetic.
Our tip is to ensure that you have ample bedroom storage in various forms… whether it is a woven basket, nightstand, dresser or kist, bedroom storage is a must.
Create a Calm and Comfortable Bedroom
Choose a calming colour palette for your bedroom. Neutrals and lighter tones are often the best options here as these help to establish a fresh, bright and welcoming space. This will also help you fall asleep better at night. For an inspired winter room, consider layering different textiles. Comfy cushions and thick, fluffy throws are perfect for colder nights.
A large area rug will also help to warm up your floors. This can also help to ground the overall look of your bedroom, as well as act as insulation to help keep the warmth indoors during colder months.
