When decorating their bedroom most people will focus on the elements that reflect their needs when they are awake.
Your bedroom might offer convenience by day, but there is a chance it may have different impact at night. You still spend a third of each day there, so a hot, bright ,cluttered room can and will disrupt your sleep keeping you lying awake for a period of time, which can mean bad news for your waking health.
Creating and maintaining the prefect sleep environment is very important for achieving the best possible quality sleep which is vital for your health and well being.
Here are some useful tips to help you turn your bedroom in to a tranquil, relaxing environment.
