7 Bedroom Design Tips to Help You Sleep Better!

Are you having trouble sleeping at night?

Do you suffer from insomnia?

Are you having a hard time finding a cure for your irregular sleep pattern? 

Houzz indicated that “insomnia can be a medical condition, in many cases, sleep deprivation is the result of living in inadequate environments. This means that your bedroom's atmosphere may be keeping you from sleeping.” Bright lights and electronics may be also to blame, but have you ever considered that your d├ęcor may play an important role?

Here are a few design recommendations from Houzz to help you sleep better:
  1. Place your bed against a wall facing away from openings like doors and windows
  2. Control the amount of light by adding dimmer switches
  3. De-clutter your bedroom by getting rid of items underneath and around your bed
  4. Use quiet muted colors like soft shades of yellow, peach, green or blue
  5. Disconnect yourself from electronics by leaving them outside the bedroom
  6. Find accessories that serve their purpose but won’t interrupt your sleep
  7. Change your linens at least once a week

How to Pick Authentic Colors For Your Historic Home

Do you want to faithfully represent the time period in which your historic home was built?

Our Ann Arbor exterior painting company recommends the following when trying to stay true to your historic homes’ identity:
  1. Have a paint chip sampled at your local paint store! Paint stores can analyze the layers of paint for you to help determine the original color.

  3. Take a tour of local historic home in your area to draw inspiration! Many are preserved as museums.
