A bedroom has multiple responsibilities to consider in the design. It’s usually where you keep your clothes, gather with your significant other, and start and end your day.
The most important role of the bedroom is to induce sleep, and that should be the priority when creating your space. Make sure it reflects whatever relaxes you – for me that means clean lines, subdued colors, and cloud-like linens and bedding. Accessories like room darkening blackout shades, a soothing white noise machine, and scents of lavender, can also help you sleep more soundly.
On the contrary, mess and chaos can interrupt sleep, so plan to have enough storage space for whatever you are keeping in your room. Don’t leave out physical clutter that can also clutter your mind. As a rule of thumb, I also try to keep work and TV out of the bedroom, so that the body recognizes it as a place to unwind and retreat from electronics and everyday stress.
