Then you finish the house chores and by the time you are completely exhausted it is your bedroom that welcomes with you with open arms to relax. How would you feel if this personal retreat of a room was even more relaxing?

Tweaks to a Greener and Healthier Bedroom

The easiest and smartest way to dash up your bedroom more comfortable is to give it a green makeover. So why just get a ‘good night’s sleep’; why not a ‘better night sleep’? Here are a few tweaks to make your bedroom healthier:

Clean Your Mattress

Did you know that about 70 percent of the dust underneath your bed is actually dead skin? So basically we are sleeping in a web of microbes. You sure clean your bedsheet and pillow covers regularly. But the mattress also needs to be cleaned once a year. An easy way to clean it is to sprinkle baking soda then leave it for 15 minutes; suck up with powerful vacuum. Mattresses also wears out easily so spin it 180 degrees every 3 months to ensure an even wear-out.

Choose Subtle Colors

Subtlety is the key to rejuvenation. Since bedroom is the place where you get all the energy to start off the next day, it should be soothing enough to calm your senses. Instead of sharp pinks, go for blue, grey or white. Softer shades are known to get you a sound sleep. You must also consider the Volatile Organic Compound of the paint. Choose the one with low VOC.

Hang Heavier Curtains

Hefty curtains in lighter shades would be good for a bedroom. You would sure like to wake up early in the morning but straight sunlight onto your face would get you irritated. So you should choose hefty curtains that keep all the light away from your eyes and you can wake up with a smile on your face.

Say no to Gadgets in Bed

We are in the habit of talking on the phone, watching movies or just texting when we are snuggled up in the bed. All this is known to interfere with your sleeping cycles, so say no to them. Bed is not about being awake. Keep all your gadgets away and concentrate on a good night’s sleep.

Scent it up

Soothing scents encourage a tranquil sleep. Be creative and choose the favorite scent. Lavender, jasmine and vanilla are some chosen fragrances. Scented candles will also work well to soothe the ambience.

Needless to say, you must keep your bedroom clean and clutter-free. Keep the noises away from the room while sleeping. A good night’s sleep is what you need to get going the next day. So say hello to a green bedroom.
