If you’re comfortable sleeping in the dark, blackout shades and curtains are an excellent piece of decoration. Their dark fabric blocks out any external sources of light emitted from the outside, whether it’s street lamps, car lights, or your neighbor’s home.
Much more, if you don’t want to be awakened by the morning sun shining on your face, these jet black curtains and shades can provide you much-needed shade for those extra hours of quality, uninterrupted sleep.
If you have sleep apnea or other breathing difficulties at night, you might need a CPAP machine. CPAP is a common treatment for people with sleep apnea, and these humidifiers, in particular, deliver humidified air to the patient through a portable and easy-to-use machine.
The lack of humidity from cold air often causes irritation and dryness to your sinuses —so it’s a humidifier’s main job to protect this. The CPAP humidifier blows cool air that’ll eventually be breathed into our nasal cavity. More specifically, CPAP humidifiers reduce these symptoms by heating up the air surrounding your bedroom and letting the air you breathe feel cool and refreshing.
Do you believe in the mystical power of dream catchers? Even if you don’t, these unique decorations are said to protect you from nightmares while you sleep.
The Native American legend, in particular, believes that a dream catcher entraps bad dreams to make room for the good ones to flow through your dreams at night.
Regardless of what you believe about this item’s magical undertones, these cute decorations come in various colors and sizes and can easily spruce up your headrest. Anything following after is a much-beloved bonus!
If you have a hard lumpy pillow that does more harm than good to your sacred sleep ritual, you absolutely need to find a replacement for it. And bamboo pillows do just the trick.
Specifically, hypoallergenic bamboo pillows are some of the best materials for those who prefer a softer surface under their heads. Bamboo is often used as an alternative to goose down and other pillow types because it’s equally as soft and comfortable on your head. This material is also said to be more durable and long-lasting than the average pillow.
Bamboo pillows are available in various shapes and sizes, including contour body pillows for sleeping on your side. If you’re hard of sleeping or find yourself having sweats at night, getting a bamboo pillow is a definite lifesaver.
Warm Light Lampshade
If you want to make your bedroom feel like a spa, invest in a warm light lampshade.
The benefits of these lamps are endless: it has a soft glow that won’t affect your sleep; it shines bright enough for comfortable reading before bedtime, and it can come in various sizes and brightness to suit your eye sensitivity.
For those who have trouble falling asleep, a warm light lampshade can also help reduce stress and anxiety that happens before hitting the bed. Compared to harsher lighting, this lampshade’s soothing glow can help your mind relax and ease you into sleep.
Potted Succulents and Cacti
Even if you don’t consider yourself a green thumb, having some potted plants in your room can be a good pop of color every time you wake up. It can also help a tonne with your mental health, especially if you’re holed up indoors more often than not.
Cactus plants are especially easy to care for and require very little sunlight, so they’re ideal for those who want a low-maintenance addition to their room’s decor.
Besides that, succulents can also make excellent indoor plants, as do spider plants and rubber trees. The best part about these various plant types is that not only are they relatively easy to take care of for a beginner, but they also aren’t heavily reliant on water or sunlight.
