Why Look at Our Beds for Sale?
The positioning of your bed, the air quality in the room, the light, and the sleep surface all make a difference in how well you sleep. In this article, we will look at the ideal setting for your bedroom to achieve restful sleep and why shopping for mattress and base sets for sale from The Bed Shop can help to tick off the box for the right sleep surface.
According to the Sleep Foundation, your body needs rest and the only way to get full rejuvenation is through quality sleep. Depriving it from this essential can lead to problems ranging from digestive issues to weight gain or loss, depression, headaches, concentration problems, anxiety, and even the risk of a stroke, among many other issues. For you to live, you need sleep, food, water, and air. Deprive your body of one of these, and you may eventually end up with health issues. Let us first consider the ideal setting, inclusive of the bed positioning to achieve a good night’s rest every night.
Position of the Bed in the Room Layout
Where you sleep in the room can affect your comfort level, anxiety, and ability to fall asleep. To create the ideal setting for complete rest, you need to consider where you position the headboard, what will be in your view, and how much light and wind you should allow onto your face. Let us take a closer look at the placement considerations.
- Positioning the Headboard Against the Wall – is it the Best Position?
You will often hear people say that the headboard should be against the wall. Although it is true if the room has a square layout with the bed in the centre of the wall against which the headboard is positioned, it is not always the ideal if it is a rectangular room. According to interior design experts, the right positioning can then be determined by a zone creation approach. Break up the space in zones and allocate one zone for the bed with the other zones or zone allocated to a table, dressing table, chair, or sofa.
If the room is exceptionally spacious, you can go with the island look with the sleep space in the middle of the room or away from the wall in a zone. This approach is only suited to a truly large room.
- Positioning the Bed to Be Visible from The Door – Does It Work?
Many suggest placement of the sleep space in full view of the door entrance, but it can look great with only a part of it visible. The idea is that you would have full view of the door entrance and windows. Having the sleep space away from the door gives you more privacy and a bit of security, helping you to relax in the knowledge that you will notice if anyone enters through the door. Since the sleep space is for rest and relaxation, you do not want to constantly worry that someone will enter or attempt to enter your private space without you noticing.
- Legs to the Door or Not?
This is more of a cultural preference than a practical one. In some cultures, it is considered rude to show the feet as the welcoming sight from the door. In Western cultures, it does not make a huge difference, with many interior designers even preferring it.
- Place the Bed with View of the Outside – Only if the Sun Does Not Shine in Your Eyes
Although the consensus is to always make the best use of views from the bed by placing it so that you can see the woods, landscape, or ocean, it is not the ideal setting if you will be greeted every morning with sun in your eyes. You will get rather hot early morning and will be tempted to keep the curtains closed. If you do not have the full morning sun shine right onto your face, then placement of the bed to make use of an outside view is the right choice.
That said, consider that the window is where a lot of heat is lost. In addition, constant wind blowing on your face can cause you to wake up with a sore throat every day. It can even affect your overall immunity. As such, placing the bed just outside the immediate draft from the window and direct sunlight will help to create a more comfortable space of deep rest, also during the day. If you struggle to sleep, you do not want your bed to face a television or the window as it will cause distraction, making it difficult to fall asleep.
Other Considerations in Creating the Ideal Setting in Your Room for Optimal Sleep Quality
We have touched on the role of the sun and wind with the positioning of the bed, but let us consider aspects like noise, clutter, ambient light, temperature, electronic disruptions, and the comfort of the mattress as well.
Remove Noise from the Room
Placing the sleep surface close to the window does allow for fresh air, but it can also mean having to deal with noises from outside. If your home is located on a busy street, then you will want the bed to be slightly removed from the window area to ensure a low-noise sleep environment. If the outside noise penetration cannot be limited, consider playing white noise music in the background to help relax the body. This is music or sounds like a waterfall, the ocean, forest sounds, and more that help you to relax.
Create a warm ambience in the room with warm or natural light rather than a bright or blue light. Invest in a few nightstands to create a night-time feel before you go to sleep with lights that are soft rather than bright. Switch off all lights when you go to sleep. If you have to sleep during the day, close the curtains and shutters. The darker the room when you try to fall asleep, the better.
Here is why you will want to consider the beds for sale from The Bed Shop. With mattresses available that promote good airflow, you can create a cooler sleep surface. Have a look at our range of mattresses to create optimal airflow. You want to avoid sleeping too hot as this will cause you to twist and turn, sweat, and experience discomfort. Also implement measures to create a pleasant ambient temperature of between 16°C and 22°C.
Remove Electronic Disruptions
As convenient as it might be to have a television in the bedroom, it can affect your ability to fall asleep. If you do want to watch television in bed, switch it off at least an hour before bedtime to give your mind time to wind down. Do not sleep with the television on. The same applies for your computer. The blue light emitted from the screen can hinder your sleep. If possible, put your mobile phone on the table or dresser some distance from the bed. If you need it close for security reasons, make sure the screen is turned to sleep mode.
Choose the Right Mattress for You
When it comes to which mattress is best for you, then it is about body weight, length, your preferred sleeping positions, and whether you sleep with a partner or alone. Have a look at the article on how to choose a mattress that is right for you. The ideal surface should provide adequate support, be long enough to ensure your feet will not dangle off the edge, promote good airflow, and provide support for correct spine alignment.
