- Symmetry: The human mind will ease to relax when things are symmetrical. Arrange the furniture in a symmetrical way. However, if you do not want your room to appear too monotonous, try introducing some ingenious changes. For insistence, instead of having matching lamps on each night stand, chose two lamps with the same shape but different colors.
- Less is more: We took a page out of the minimalist style to create the perfect bedrooms for sleep. Lose the distractions in your room (i.e, your TV and computer) and only keep furniture in your bedroom that guarantees enough for relaxing hours of sleep.
- Installing a ceiling fan: It is known that when your core body temperature is cooled down, it will help you fall asleep faster. Keep your bedroom's door open and the window to circulate air flow. You can even install a ceiling fan if needed, or look into the Noria and see if that device will be a better fit for your bedroom.
- Remove Carpeting: Wall-to-wall carpet traps dust, mold, pet dander, and other allergens a vacuum may not be able to remove. Breathing in these allergens will also cause health problems and may cause discomfort preventing you from falling asleep. If needed, add a throw rug.
- Total darkness: Your mind and body’s natural circadian rhythm leans towards following dark-light cycles. This means that the amount of light in your bedroom can affect your sleep. Modern devices, such as digital clocks, televisions, phones, and computers can disrupt us from dark, calm environments we need for sleeping. To solve this solution, use your armoires to hide your television or computer, swipe your digital clock for a vintage one, and hide your phone in your side table drawer.
- Rid the clutter: If your room is too cluttered, it can cause anxiety and prevent you from sleeping. Try to keep your bedroom in order so you are not worried about the mess when you are trying to fall asleep.
