Are you setting up a bedroom for your child? Perhaps you’re just redesigning your kid’s old room, or maybe you are changing up the whole house. Either way, we’re sure your child will love having a room that looks brand new once more. But, there are a few things that you need to think about when setting up your child’s room. Particularly if you want to make sure that they do indeed get a good night of sleep when they head to bed. Here are a few of the most important considerations.
Leave Out The Tech
It might sound odd in this day and age to think about designing a room with no tech or at least, limited amounts. But it’s not really because tech – most tech anyway – releases electromagnetic energy. These energy waves are completely invisible to the naked human eye, but research has shown that they have a definite impact on sleeping patterns. They can even stop people getting to the REM level of sleep and in doing so lead to nights that are completely restless. You might find yourself tossing and turning all through the night if you don’t reach the REM stage of sleep.
You might think, well as long as the tech gets turned off it’s okay, but that’s not true. Research shows that this electromagnetic energy will continue to be produced even when devices are switched off.
Comfy And Healthy
Don’t forget about the mattress. You’re probably considering getting your child something similar to a memory foam mattress. Memory foam mattress are made of synthetic materials and release harmful gases. Kids can be allergic to these gases, or they may just respond negatively to them. They do tend to smell quite foul. The advised alternative would be to get a green mattress like the ones we use. You can check out my green mattress as a healthier mattress option. These are made of natural materials and will be far better for a child’s room.
A Little Light
If your child is still little, you might want to think about setting up a night light in their room. We recommend a Himalayan salt lamp. These beautiful pink rocks are hollow and often use a small bulb to provide a little light. The pink, orange glow creates a soothing atmosphere, perfect for serene thoughts. You can learn more about the benefits of these lamps in the video below.
You can get more hi-tech night lamps, but you’ll find that these might produce the exact electromagnetic energy we told you to try and avoid.
But Not Too Much
You do need to be wary of light pollution in your child’s room. Light pollution is one of the most common causes of a lack of sleep. While some people can sleep with light slipping into the room through the curtains or underneath the blinds, a lot of individuals can’t. If you think light pollution might bother your child, the trick is to make sure you use thick materials for curtains and blinds. As well as this, you need to accurately measure these materials and make sure that they don’t leave a crack that light can shine through.
We hope this helps you set up your child’s room in a way that increases their chance of getting a fantastic night of sleep.
