Darker decor 'equals better night's sleep'
Published: 30 January 2009
People aiming to get nicer sleep patterns on the go may want to look into darker paints and bed linen to match, with one interior designer stressing the importance of a less bright decor and bedding in resting easier.Decorating of the bedroom with darker colours could result in a better night's sleep for many people, it has been said.
Interior designer and furnishings mogul Dallas Alice told the Dallas Home Improvement Examiner of her problems in getting decent rest when her bedroom was defined by lighter colours.
She noted that she used to be without the darkness necessary for natural sleep inducing, adding that it involves the biological process with melatonin, which makes the body feel tired in dimmer conditions, highlighting the benefits of getting less distractingly bright bedding and duvet covers.
Offsetting dark colours with a light carpet can help the room still feel bigger, she recommended.
Earlier this month, Thomson Reuters revealed that the number of young adults taking medication for sleep issues has risen sharply in recent years, highlighting the need for changes in lifestyle.
