The love of rest: 6 essentials for a good night's sleep

There's nothing quite like sleeping at home!
Have you stayed in a hotel this summer? We don't doubt that the mattress was very comfortable, but there's definitely nothing like sleeping at home! When we get back to the routine, we realise that we need a good night's sleep - it's time to get out of bed with renewed energy! It's time to invest in your health, whatever your age. Find your perfect mattress at IKEA... And if you're not satisfied, you can exchange it for another one!

1. Essential comfort

Comfort is undoubtedly a vital aspect of sleep. A mattress with the right firmness to suit your posture and the way you sleep, as well as a comfortable pillow, a suitable duvet and linen, are essential to achieve the perfect rest... and totally personalised!

2. Temperature just as it should be

Did you know that ideal sleep is obtained in a cool environment, between 16°C and 18°C? Natural materials such as wool or cotton absorb humidity, creating the most comfortable environment.

3. Get into silent mode before going to sleep

Your bedroom should be a corner protected from unwanted sounds that interfere with your night's sleep. We suggest you make use of some thick textiles such as curtains and carpets, which help to reduce sounds.

4. Relax... Breathe!

Knowing that you're breathing fresh air will help you relax, because air quality has a direct effect on how well you rest. Ideally, air your bedroom regularly and add one of the air purifiers you'll find at IKEA - every detail counts when it comes to creating a healthy place to relax!

5. Light up your dreams...

Remember that light (or the lack of it) is a factor that also affects the quality of your sleep. Ideally, your bedroom should be as dark as possible, as this helps to release melatonin, the chemical that prepares you for a restful sleep. Did you know that dark curtains and blinds allow you to block out city lights?

6. Decorating in neutrals

Choose harmonious colours for your bedroom that create a relaxed atmosphere, such as blues, greens and yellows. Be sure to choose well designed furniture that keeps order under control.
