Create a soothing bedroom oasis

Your bedroom is one of the most important rooms in your house. It is a space to call your own and a oasis to retreat to. Most importantly, your bedroom can help you get a good night's sleep, which is essential for your health and well-being. In fact, the layout of your bedroom is so crucial, that the National Sleep Foundation recently launched a website titled "Inside Your Bedroom." The application helps individuals learn about their sleeping style and teaches them to tailor their bedroom to their needs. Take a look at some of the important design tips from the site:

Block out light: If you're like most people, you probably sleep more soundly when there's not outside light peeking through your windows. This is because light can trick your brain into thinking that it's time to get up, when it's really time to go to sleep. To block out any unwanted light, whether it's coming from the early sunrise or street lamps, invest in quality window coverings from Bazaar Home Decorating Center.

The power of color choice: "Choose wall colors that elicit warmth and calm," the National Sleep Foundation says on their website. "Although researchers have studied the psychology of color and some believe that certain hues affect our mood (for example, red being stimulating), no one knows your color-feeling connections better than you do. Pick colors, artwork, blankets, and so forth that are soothing to you."
