When redecorating your bedroom, consider good storage with decent-sized drawers and wardrobes, and use boxes that can be stored away easily so that your room is free of clutter – this will allow your brain to feel at peace when you enter the bedroom. A good quality bed and pillows will look after your back and neck whilst bedding with a high thread count is softer and will help you sleep better. Illumination is very important so it is advisable to go for adjustable lighting to provide the right ambience for the time of day, with softly-dimmed lights during the evening and brighter lights in the daytime. Rugs, wallpapers and pictures can bring together a room, making it more personal and cosy with beautiful wellproportioned furniture. Colour schemes create the overall ambience to the bedroom and muted tones are ideal for a relaxing feel. Bright colours make you feel livelier so use them with caution in your bedroom. Large bold patterns can make a real impact in a room – if you want your bedroom to be a restful place, go for smaller patterns that are not so brazen.
