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.
Adapting a Scandinavian style is not just about aesthetics alone, and it also gives an ergonomic advantage for those with a small bedroom. If you are short on space, the inherent simplicity of the Nordic style, its use of a neutral color palette with white being the predominant color, and the shunning of unnecessary accessories and decor are indeed big advantages! Yet, because of the wide use of push rugs, wooden bedside tables and ample natural ventilation, your small bedroom will neither seem sterile nor dreary.
