Tips to Optimize or Downsize a Bedroom

-Tips to Optimize or Downsize a Bedroom-

Time springs forward this month, and you may need to optimize or downsize a bedroom for better sleep. Our Tampa Bay real estate team often refers customers to local contractors and interior designers for assistance. Although for many homeowners, there are simple things you can do yourself to improve a bedroom of any size.

Whether you are moving to a single-bedroom condo with limited space, or your current bedroom is simply too cramped – consider these ideas for downsizing and optimizing bedrooms.

  1. Declutter and Decorate Bedrooms to Create More Space.

First, not only is it important to clean up the dust, but it is also helpful to clean out those unnecessary knickknacks and clutter collecting the dust.  Experts often suggest that decluttering will help you create a more tranquil environment to support better sleep.

Similarly, you can declutter a space by downsizing your bulky bedroom furniture. Consider transitioning from that big dresser to a more modern system of clothing storage.  One solution is a bedframe featuring drawers for storing clothes, blankets, towels, and other linens.  Another solution is to hang shelves on the wall for your books and items.

Once you’ve updated the furniture, it can be fun to decorate bedrooms in a style to match the new bedroom set.  When considering color schemes, do not underestimate the power of color therapy to set the mood. For example, beige as well as cool colors like gray and light blue can create a more relaxing energy. Lighter colors can also make a small room feel larger.

  1. Make Home Updates to Sleep Better in Bedrooms of Any Size.

Additionally, you can make value-added home updates for sleeping better in a room of any size. For example, experts suggest creating a dark environment for better sleep.

Whether your home has a spacious primary suite or a small bedroom, it probably has a window. You may sleep better by blocking any excess sunlight creeping through that window. Light-blocking curtains or shades are affordable home updates that could add-up to more sleep. Our real estate team does suggest investing in custom-fitted window coverings to eliminate light exposure around the edges.

Another factor for sleep is to limit noise. Investing in quieter appliances, such as an energy-efficient dishwasher, water heater, HVAC system, or other updates to reduce noises and rumbles around your home. It may be as simple as tightening air vents to reduce rattling sounds.  We hope these simple tips help you optimize your home for better sleep.
