At the end of your day, lower your roller shades and relish in your spacious bathroom with a soaking tub for the ultimate retreat. After a relaxing soak, bring the peaceful feeling into your bedroom by following these tips to create a relaxing space that will grant you a better night’s sleep and restore your energy. Your bedroom should be a space designated to calm and comfort you. Follow these tips and you’ll be sleeping on cloud nine in no time.

Color It Calm. Color has a powerful effect on mood and energy, and the right hues can transform your bedroom into a relaxing retreat. Transform your bedroom into the ultimate tranquil retreat with the soothing power of greens, blues, and gentle grays.

Bring in the Calming Scents. One of the best ways to set the tone for your bedroom is with fragrance. Infuse your sanctuary with the soothing whispers of lavender, the sweet whisper of vanilla, or the calming touch of chamomile. Keep your favorite aromatherapy potions close by your bed - be it a divine lotion, a misty linen spray, a charming oil diffuser, or nature's own fresh blooms.

Tame the Electronics. The notification from your phone, tablet or computer can be distracting and make you feel restless. Implement a new bedtime rule: no more beeps & buzzes at least an hour before dream time. Let's trade those pings for zzz's and wake up feeling refreshed.

Keep It Cool. Try cooler thermostat settings to see what feels most comfortable to you, as each person will vary. Finding your perfect sleep temp can be a game-changer. Are you ‘team cozy’ or ‘team chill’? Let's make our bedrooms into sleep caves—quiet, dark, and just the right kind of cool. Your NEMA Programmable thermostat with zoned heating will make it easy to find your ideal temp.

Lower the Light. The lighting in the room should be low wattage. Keep it cozy enough to unwind but bright enough to keep the night's charm alive. When it’s time to relax, turn the lights down low enough to take the edge off, but bright enough so your eyes don’t need to strain.

Comfort in Textiles. Bedding plays a big role in sleep. Select bed linens and pillows that feel luxurious to the touch and invite you to unwind. Make sure every piece of your bedding is comfortable and clean. Combine this with your soothing scents for the ultimate relaxation. It should be so enticing and cozy that you can’t wait to get in. Try adding a pop of Pantone’s COTY to your bedroom with a new duvet or accessories.

Embrace the Quiet. Noises can also affect deep sleep cycles, even if you don’t remember waking. If you’re a light sleeper and especially sensitive to distracting noises, try using white noise to drown out the unwanted sounds. Embrace the power of white noise or soothing soundscapes. From whispering winds to gentle rain, let these sounds cocoon you from the chaos.

Get Organized. Wave goodbye to the clutter chaos & say hello to serenity. A disorganized or cluttered space can distract you from drifting off and keep you from feeling relaxed. Put anything that belongs elsewhere in the house back in its proper place and cut down collectibles and artwork to just a few meaningful pieces. Your spacious NEMA closets will help to stash your items.

Make your Bed Each Morning. Rise, tuck, repeat. Turns out, a well-made bed isn't just a treat for the eyes—it's the secret ingredient to dreamier zzz's. A National Sleep Foundation survey found that people who regularly make their beds in the morning are more likely to get a good night's sleep. It might be a small accomplishment, but making the bed sets the tone for the entire day. A neat nest at dawn promises serenity by night. So, fluff those pillows and smooth that comforter – your future self will thank you for the nightly bliss.
