Creating a room perfect for a good night’s rest

By in Uncategorised with 0 Comments

Undoubtedly, 2020 has been a stressful and upsetting year for many of us and this can be detrimental for a good night’s sleep – I am sure most of us would agree that this is not good for anyone’s mood! Whether you are selling your property or on the hunt for one to purchase, Move have compiled a list of top tips to ensure your sleep is at the forefront of your priorities. By creating a relaxing bedroom, not only will you benefit, but also any potential buyers as they too will want to experience a blissful night’s sleep.

In a time where working from home has become the norm, it can prove difficult to separate home life and work life and whilst it may be tempting to work from your bed, this should be avoided at all costs. It is paramount that your bedroom is associated with sleep, rather than work! Believe it or not, the sight of a laptop and work items in the bedroom can deter potential buyers significantly as it may infer that there is not enough room in the house to work elsewhere so do yourself a favour and keep the laptop in a different room.

In the theme of keeping things out, remember to also take a break from your phone and television whilst in bed so that you are not tempted to stay up late. It can also help to create a sleeker look in the room without having an abundance of cables for electronics hanging around. This is a much nicer visual for both you and any prospective buyers.

Whilst it is not essential to redecorate before listing your property for sale, some people choose to do so. If this is something you are considering, why not try a muted or pastel colour in the bedrooms to promote a calming feeling amongst yourself and guests. Of course, this is subject to personal taste however, brighter colours can often cause us to feel more excited than calm. It may also be worth investing in a thermostat for your bedroom so that the temperature of the room can be easily adjusted. Temperature can have a large effect on the quality of sleep so it is important that you can control it. This can be a huge advantage for prospective buyers if the technology is already there to accommodate this.

Bright lights have their time and place, however, the bedroom is not one of them. By investing in some ‘mood’ lighting, you can often create a cosy and calm feeling within seconds. Instead of just one light in the centre of the room, why not try smaller lights spaced out which can be adjusted via a dimmer switch? This allows you to make the room brighter and darker where applicable.

Overall, it is clear to see that by taking simple steps, you can boost a room’s sleep appeal for yourself and prospective purchasers.
