Getting a good night's sleep can sometimes feel like chasing a unicorn, pointless because what you're after doesn't seem to exist. If your sleep space doesn't promote rest and relaxation, it's time to consider designing your bedroom for better sleep. A recent study by the Farnsworth Group, an engineering and architecture firm, found that 77 percent of people identified their bedroom as the area in their home that has the most impact on their well-being. In addition, The National Sleep Foundation noted that the average person spends one third of their time sleeping, which makes a solid case for making your bedroom a place of respite.
"Because sleep is so crucial to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, you want to make sure your bedroom is a place you can relax and rejuvenate," design expert Gena Kirk, vice president of home building company KB Home, tells Bustle. With Daylight Saving Time spring forward coming, this is an ideal time to switch up your bedroom concept to get more shut eye, and it's easier than you think. While redesigning your bedroom might feel overwhelming and seem expensive, there are little things you can do on the cheap to make your room more sleep friendly.
