Take your time. Great design takes a while and usually requires refining before you come up with the perfect plan for your lifestyle. Don't rush through the design — it's worth taking a little extra time up front to make sure you have a more efficient and functional plan in the end. The truth is, great design doesn't necessarily mean a space that's overly complex and expensive to build. A space that functions better, costs less to build, is more efficient to run and is easier to maintain can be an outstanding example of great design.
Savor and relax. Imagine doing a few gentle stretches or yoga poses before bed, lighting a scented candle and sipping some chamomile tea while you write in your journal. There are no to-do lists or pinging phones vying for your attention. You can simply be. Imagine how easy it would be to gradually unwind, release the tension of your day and ease into a restful, deep, restorative sleep in a space free of clutter and distractions. Once the busyness of the day is done, make time to simply relax in your newly cleared space. Take action: Once your bedroom is clean and clutter-free, pick and choose from the list below to enhance your space and get a better night's sleep: Use a linen spray or essential-oil diffuser with a relaxing scent like lavender or rose, keep a small vase of fresh flowers on your nightstand, do a few gentle stretches or yoga poses to help release the tensions of the day, take a warm bath with essential oils before bed, sip a cup of herbal tea and write in your journal, gradually dim the lights in your bedroom an hour before bed, ending with just a single candle before blowing it out and going to sleep.
Not all table lamps are created equal for reading. Ideally, the base of the shade should sit level with your eyes when you're propped up in bed, and the shade should direct light toward you rather than channeling it up or down. Floor lamps also are an option, but they compete for space with nightstands, so it can be harder to make them work.
Keep privacy in mind. It's always nice when you can leave the bedroom door open without forsaking all of your privacy. The small foyer in this example provides separation from the family room. I always try to avoid designing a layout in which you look directly into the bedroom from a more public space, like a great room, kitchen or family room.
