Good news for all bed lovers – March is National Bed Month – time for a lie in before learning about the importance of a good night’s sleep! Organised by The Sleep Council, the month aims to remind us all of why a sound sleep is good for our health.
Forget the old saying that if “You snooze, you lose.” It’s thought that a good sleep has amazing properties that make you healthier and happier, and can even add years to your life!
So what type of bedroom do you like and how do you use your bedroom? Are you someone who simply regards the bedroom as a place to sleep or is it a retreat?
Do you go for the modern, minimalist look that is completely free of clutter and distractions such as the television and of course from which all gadgets are banned. We are familiar now with research suggesting that using digital devices close to bedtime and the blue light that such devices emit can be harmful to a good night’s sleep. Such a space allows us to calm our minds before we sleep so that we wake refreshed. Features include sleek shapes and minimal furniture with simple lines.
Or do you regard our bedroom as your retreat where you can escape the family and be cocooned? This is a space to snuggle up and relax. It is likely to comprise warm colours, a chair for curling up with a book, table lamps for that soft lighting and lots of throws and cushions in different textures (and dare we say the odd furry animal or two!). It may include a television for watching those boxed sets. The bed is likely to feature a wooden, or maybe iron, bed frame.
Inspired by our love of travel and staycations, the boutique hotel look has become a popular trend. The key to this look is elegance and sophistication. Work in a wow headboard, keep the background neutral but jazz up with an accent colour such as mustard, teal or fuchsia pink, make the most of a bedside table making sure it has at least one drawer to hide the clutter and add a stylish bedside lamp. An ottoman or chaise at the foot of the bed is a key feature of this look. If you have the space fall for a four poster, Perhaps the most important aspect of the boutique hotel look is beautiful quality bedlinen, buy the best you can.
