Room design and how it affects your sleep   
 
Buying a new home can be the perfect chance to redesign all of the rooms in your home to be perfect for you. In order to do that, you should look at the ways that you are going to use those rooms and design them accordingly. There are a lot of things that affect the way you interact with the room, and ways that the room affects you when you’re in it, especially your bedroom.

Here are some of the design aspects that will affect you when you are in your bedroom, and how to make them work best for you in your sleep schedule.

Clutter
Clutter is a huge issue for a lot of people. You should do whatever you can to keep clutter out of your bedroom because crowded spaces tend to make people feel a lot more stressed out.
Luckily, you are moving! It’s a perfect time to de-clutter your life. While you are packing, look at the things that you’re boxing up. If you can’t remember the last time you use an item or you don’t know why you have it, put it in a separate box of things to be donated to a thrift store or charity. Not only will this make it easier for you to move, but you will also have less stuff to worry about unpacking in your new home.

Light
Our bodies naturally want to go to sleep when it’s dark outside and to be awake when it’s light out. Modern life doesn’t make that easy since we spend all of our days under electric lights. That’s why being able to shut out light in your bedroom is one of the most important things that you can do for yourself when designing your bedroom.

Luckily, it’s also super simple. You can do this by adding light blocking or blackout curtains to the window. These curtains come in all kinds of colors and patterns, so you don’t have to worry about it not matching the aesthetic of your room. If you can’t find any that you like, there are also ways to DIY your own light blocking curtains with a fabric that you like better.

Air Flow
Having a good amount of air flow in your room is also important. You might be tempted to close the doors and windows to your bedroom to block out sound, but if you can avoid it, you should do so.

If you must close your doors and windows, make sure that you have a fan running while you sleep to create air flow. This will also help to block out some of the sounds and the rest of your home while you sleep by creating white noise.

If you have sleep apnea or another disorder that requires a CPAP machine, make sure that you leave some space for it in your design as well.

Colour
You might think that the color of your walls would not affect your sleep cycle at all, but it actually does. Travelodge found that 58 percent of their study participants slept best in a room with blue walls. Yellow walls also had good results.
