Do you live in a warm climate, or do you just have a tendency to feel too hot at night? Whatever the case may be, if your bedroom is on the warmer side of things, it can be difficult for some people to get quality sleep. And when that’s the case, then productivity suffers and you might find yourself feeling miserable during those daytime hours as well! In this blog post we’ll cover six tips that will help cool your bedroom down.
1) Install a ceiling fan in your bedroom
Rather than relying on heavy air conditioning units that can change the temperature of an entire home, installing a few fans throughout every room will help circulate cool air. Ceiling fans are especially effective because they work with natural convection to efficiently and evenly distribute the breeze coming from them thanks to their height.
Natural breezes generated by open windows also have this same effect so it’s always a good idea to let as much fresh air into your home for ventilation purposes. The more stagnant the inside becomes, the more difficult it is for any type of cooling system to do its job effectively. And if you happen live somewhere where AC isn’t an option, you still have the choice of using a fan to create a breeze in your bedroom.
2) Add some plants and flowers for an extra touch of life.
Plants help improve air quality, and can even be a natural source of sleep hormones. For a tropical vibe, try placing one or two palm plants in the corner of your room. But don’t stop there! Add some houseplants for an extra touch of life – although they’ll need more care than their outdoor counterparts because indoors is much less forgiving when it comes to neglecting watering needs. If you’re not too keen on getting all up close and personal with greenery that doesn’t move like fish tanks sprouting out from large bookshelves, you can also add some paintings or framed posters of plants for an extra green touch.
3) Install solar projection wallpaper
If you’re looking for an alternative way to cool down your home without having it rely on traditional AC systems, consider installing some sun-inspired wallpapers with different shades that will give off radiant heat during the day. These types of wallpapers or other products like window film also function in a way that will allow the sun’s heat to be reflected off your windows and keep the bedroom at an optimal temperature during times when you’re not home.
4) Rearrange furniture
The composition of what is inside your bedroom can have just as much effect on its temperature as outside factors, which means making sure it has enough air flow by rearranging any heavy pieces that might block doorways or vents may help with letting cool breezes circulate through more easily .
Just make sure there are no electrical outlets near beds since these could get too hot and pose a safety hazard for children who sleep within arm’s reach. It would also be wise to use curtains to block any sunlight that might be coming in through the windows.
5) Be conscious of what’s around your bed
Aside from temperature control, there is another important factor relating specifically to bedrooms- sleep quality! Keeping things like electronics, televisions and computers out of the bedroom will help you sleep better since any type of light or noise can interfere with our natural circadian rhythms.
6) Keep a cool head
There is one last thing to think about when trying to keep your bedroom at an optimal temperature- yourself! Since people tend to be more sensitive to heat than anything else, it’s important that they have access to cold water during summer months so as not compromise their own health. You may also want wear lightweight fabrics like linen for maximum comfort even if it means sacrificing style points in order to stay cool all day long.
