You might not realize it, but the way that you decorate your home and especially your bedroom can make a huge impact on your mental health and the quality of sleep you get. 
 
Here are some of the ways you could be damaging your sleep, and some ways that you can mitigate those issues.

Bright Colors
In your bedroom, you want to keep things as calm, cool and comfortable as possible. With that in mind, bright colors can make you feel more awake and more distracted while you are trying to sleep. 
 
Instead, try using matte colors in the pale pastel range to make it easier to sleep - at least where you can see it. Colors like green and blue are the best option for walls you can see from bed. If you want to do an accent wall in a bright color, put it behind the bed. 

Overdecorating
Too much clutter in your room is going to make you feel more overwhelmed and stressed than you already are. Try to avoid putting too much stuff in your line of sight while you are in bed to help manage your stress levels when you try to sleep.

Too Much Light
Natural light is great during the day, but if you want to sleep past daybreak, you need to find ways to manage the light in your bedroom. You will sleep best if you are in total darkness, so try to find some blackout curtains. 
 
These might seem like big things but they are easily fixable. If you need some more ideas, keep reading!
How Else Can You Improve Your Sleep?

Ensure Your Bed is Comfortable and Stylish
While you make sure the room around you is stylish and beautiful, you should also make sure that it is designed for comfort. Get yourself a mattress and pillows that support you in the way you need them to. 

Put Your Phone Away
You might use your phone as an alarm but keeping your phone next to your bed can be bad for your sleep. You’ll be more tempted to use them if they are nearby when you struggle sleeping, which means you’ll stay awake longer. Try keeping your phone just out of reach to be able to use it as an alarm but avoid sabotaging your sleep schedule.

Avoid Working From Bed
If you work from home, keep it out of your bedroom. You should make your bed a sleep oasis. Train your body to recognize that when you get into bed, it’s time to relax, not time for work. Avoid working on your laptop or on your paperwork while in bed to help you to do that. 
 
If you find yourself struggling to sleep on a regular basis, talk to your doctor to see if there is a possibility of a sleep disorder like sleep apnea keeping you from sleeping. These issues are often easily treated and can make a major difference in your life once they are.
