Styling your bedroom this National Bed Month

Creating a cosy bedroom space is the perfect way to ensure you get a good night’s sleep, which in return will positively impact your overall health and wellbeing.

As March is National Bed Month, we’ve collated some of our top tips to help you create the ideal sleep haven, enabling a space where you’ll enjoy winding down.

Comfort is key

Whether you’re snuggling up in a single, double, king size or super king size bed, it’s important to create a comfortable space to rest your eyes each night. Blissful bedtime moments are made all the better with a soft, bouncy mattress, paired with a cosy quilt with the plumpest of pillows and dreamiest of bed throws! 
Whilst we know that a warm, cosy space is a must during the winter months, you might wish to change things up in the summer, by investing in a cooler and lighter duvet. Most UK retailers have helpful duvet tog guides available on their website to help you find the right option for you depending on the season. Check out Marks & Spencer’s handy guide here

Clean space, clean mind

Decluttering the space in which you rest is so important. Simple changes such as adding a bed side table to one or both sides of your bed can make a huge difference to keeping your space tidy. Bed side tables are handy for adding lamps and night lights to, whilst also offering a storage solution for a book or journal, as well as other features such as candles or diffusers. 
Another way to keep your bedroom space tidy and decluttered is through adding a larger storage solution such as a wardrobe, cupboard or shelving units. With a new Gleeson home, there are so many ways that you can personalise your new home from the moment it starts being built*. Fitted wardrobes are an efficient way to optimise the storage space within your home. With our fitted wardrobes, you can tailor the design to your specific needs!

Bring the outdoors in

Proven to reduce stress and boost creativity, bringing the outdoors inside is a simple and effective way to create a happy, inviting environment. For those of you seeking a lower maintenance solution, faux plants and flowers look just as fabulous as real house plants and will cause less disruption and mess to your evening routine!  
If scents are more your thing, then why not fill your bedroom with the soothing aroma of the natural outdoors by adding diffusers, candles or pillow sprays?

A calming coulour pallette 

While vibrant colours and patterns are a fantastic way to express your emotions and add personality to a room, choosing a natural and calming colour palette will help you relax and unwind. Plus, with a neutral colour tone, you will have plenty of opportunity to layer with statement accessories and patterns in the form of scatter cushions, canvas prints, candles or a blanket.

Let there be light 

Investing in quality bedroom curtains or blinds will not only help with your sleep routine, but also add to the overall design and lighting within the room. If you’re looking for an option that keeps the sunlight out during the summer mornings, you might want to opt for blackout lined curtains. Or, if you’re looking for a solution that adds character but also keeps your room feeling bright throughout the day, faux wood blinds or shutters offer the best of both.
