If you know me personally, you will know that I am a self-confessed sleepaholic. I sleep a lot; 8 hours is not good enough for me, and if I do have less I do not function very well. I’m also partial to a ‘nana nap’, and my cat has even gotten into the routine of joining me post work for an hour’s sleep. The team at Yorkshire Linen asked me if I though a nicely made bed can entice you into a peaceful sleep, and I definitely do. It just so happens that I was sent some beautiful bedding from Rooi which coincided with this question, which definitely helped me answer ‘yes’ to this question. I’m therefore sharing my tips for a peaceful sleep below.
Tips for a Peaceful Sleep
1. Good Quality Sheets
We’ve all been there, gotten into a bed with scratchy sheets and been unable to get comfortable no matter which way you turn. This is definitely not an issue when you dress your bed with Belledorm 1000 thread count Egyptian cotton duvet cover from Rooi. The cotton is unbelievably thick and super soft and I couldn’t wait to change my bed. I picked this duvet cover, not only due to the excellent quality, but the fact that it is so elegant; plain ivory with an embroidered satin hem and button fastening. My other half commented on how comfortable the bedding was and I’m sure my mum had bedding envy when she saw it too. I will definitely be purchasing more products from Rooi, and already have my eye on their candle collection
2. The Right Pillow
My other half and I have very different tastes when it comes to pillows; I love a soft pillow that I can sink my head into and drift off into blissful sleep, my other half however, prefers a very firm pillow. Make sure you have pillows that suit both of you to ensure that you both have a good night’s sleep. Yorkshire Linen have an extensive range of pillows that you can choose from, which are also very reasonably priced.
3. Thick Blackout Curtains
If you’re like me, you’ll prefer sleeping in the darkest room possible, this is where blackout curtains come into their own; no light is getting through these so you will have a peaceful night’s sleep. Just make sure you set your alarm on a loud setting as you may sleep through it!
There is just something about a good looking bedroom that entices you into a peaceful sleep; if you want to jump into that bed as soon as you walk in, I can bet that you will have a good sleep. We have a feature wall in our room, which the bed is against, then the rest of the walls are cream. We have a cream carpet and a cream carpet. You could say the room is minimal as we don’t have a lot of clutter around, which makes a big difference to me.
So there are my four top tips for a peaceful sleep, I’ve shared some products that might help with the above.
