Is your bedroom filled with clutter? Do you have a chair or surface that’s covered in unfolded clothes? Is your dressing table covered with bits of old makeup? Are there empty water glasses on your bedside tables? Or are there uncared for plants on the window sill? You’re not alone. Many of us have messy and cluttered bedrooms. It’s where we sleep and get dressed in the morning. That’s it. We don’t invite guests into our bedrooms. It’s a private place that no one else gets to see so we don’t give it as much attention and care as some of the more public rooms in our home.
But, that’s precisely why you should give it some TLC. Your bedroom is your space. It’s the one area of your home that’s just yours. Your space to relax and unwind at the end of the day. Where you get a good night’s sleep and start your day on the right foot. Turning your bedroom into a peaceful paradise can help you to de-stress, to sleep better, to begin your days feeling refreshed and alert and most importantly, with a smile on your face. Let’s take a look at a few simple changes that you could make to turn your bedroom into your perfect peaceful paradise.
The first thing that you need to do when making your bedroom more peaceful is clean up. You are never going to be able to relax when surrounded by mess and clutter. Take some time to give your room a thorough declutter. Make sure you’ve got plenty of storage, utilizing under bed storage areas, shelving, and drawers, so that you can tidily store everything that you need in the room. Get rid of everything else.
Then, get cleaning. Clean your windows and their frames to let in the as much natural light as you can. Clean your curtains, carpets, and bedding and wipe down all of the sides. Simply cleaning and tidying your room can instantly make it brighter, fresher and more peaceful.
Focus on the Bed
To make your room more peaceful, you should focus on the bed. Your bed should draw your attention as soon as you walk into the room, welcoming you in and putting you in the mood for sleep. Make sure your bed faces the door so that it’s the first thing that you see when you open the door.

Ditch the Tech
If you want your bedroom to be a relaxing paradise where you can easily switch off to get a great night’s sleep, the last thing that you should do is fill it with technology. Both the blue light and content we view on our devices can stimulate our minds, raise the serotonin levels in our brain and make it much harder to fall asleep. Checking your phone in the middle of the night can also massively disrupt your sleep cycle. Remove all technology from your bedroom and switch off for an hour or so before you go to bed instead.
