Everything in your bedroom, from the floor tiles to the colour of your bed sheets, makes a huge impact on the way you sleep. Sonam Gupta, Design Head, Tangerine, a boutique designer brand of home accessories, tells you how you can use these easy tips to transform your bedroom into the most comfortable sleep haven.
Choosing bed sheets, quilts, duvet, comforters, bed covers, pillow cases and cushion covers in cotton is highly recommended. Make sure you get bed sheets that are 100% cotton. The material must be soft, skin- friendly, environmentally safe and sweat absorbing. It should let the skin breathe and relax at night. Good quality cotton bedding and other bedroom accessories must be tested for hypoallergenic properties.
White and its shades --cream, off white, ivory white, ghost and floral white are comforting to the eyes and create an ambience of tranquility. It will help bring peace and tranquility in your bedroom.
Wooden, stone, ceramic and marble floor tiles make the room cooler. If you don't want to sleep on bed, you can just spread a mattress on the floor with a crispy white bed sheet or lay on some quilts and mats. Also, throw in some cushions, tube pillows and throws to make your sleep more comfortable.
Have you tried using new-age pillows? When you go shopping for pillows, ask for the ones that are infused with different skin-friendly materials. The most popular ones are copper-infused pillows which help in anti ageing. Pillows infused with aloe vera help to keep the skin soft and fresh.
