How To: Make Your Bedroom Comfortable

Avoid sleepless nights with these tips


Do you often find yourself tossing and turning at night? There are many possible reasons why you're finding it hard to get a good night's sleep! Did you drink coffee this afternoon? Are you still thinking about deadlines and things to do? Or maybe clutter is taking over your space.

You may start counting sheep to get to sleep but maybe the solution can be found within the walls of your bedroom. Consider these must-dos:

Set the mood for sleep

Depending on your sleeping habits—whether you sleep with the lights on or lights off, you need to set the mood for a relaxing slumber. You can always place a trusty table lamp for minimal lighting in your room. If light is coming from the outside, you may opt for blackout curtains to keep the room dark. Click here for the complete guide.


The bedroom is a place where you can relax after a long day. You won't be able to rest if your bed is overflowing with clothes, accessories, and other items. Before going to sleep, transfer your gadgets, books, and other essentials on the side table.

Organize your bedroom—including your clothes and shoes, so that you would be able to fully enjoy your sleep.

Keep your mattress in tip-top shape

How can you sleep comfortably if you have a sagging mattress? Remember that a quality piece is a must in every bedroom. Invest in a mattress that can support your back. Proper support maintains the spine's natural curve. Try to flip your mattress over and do it alternately every six months. Don't hesitate to spend on a quality mattress as you will be using it for a long time.

Clean your room regularly

If you have a shelf inside your bedroom, keep it clean to avoid the accumulation of dust. Do you have a pet who loves to stay in your bedroom, too? Make it a habit to clean the room every day as pet hair can trigger allergies and asthma attacks.

Make sure you wash and replace pillow covers and sheets regularly as well.
