Bedroom / June 26, 2018 /
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.
A better option is to create a base of soft neutrals like grays and taupes mixed with pastel colors—try lavender and celery green if you want to avoid the standard pink and blue. Also avoid high-contrast palettes and busy patterns on walls, bedding, or rugs or risk making your child feel energized instead of relaxed.
