Bedroom / June 24, 2018 /
Consider the acoustics. While good insulation inside the bedrooms walls is necessary to muffle sounds from outside the room, the decorating materials you use within your childs bedroom are also a factor. To prevent sound from bouncing all over a room, we suggest having natural wood floors with throw rugs or carpet, versus tile and laminated surfaces. Wood blinds, soft shades, and draperies are preferable over metal or plastic blinds.
Limit stimulation. A crowded and messy childs bedroom is highly disruptive to sleep patterns—even with the lights off. Plain and simple, chaos causes sensory overload which leads to anxiety. Keep toys, clothes, and other supplies in covered boxes, baskets, or cupboards to avoid overstimulation caused by clutter. Plus, enforcing a screen-free-bedroom rule will eliminate that potential distraction as well as brain-stimulating blue light emissions.
