4 Life Hacks for a Better Night’s Sleep


The kitchen might be the bustling heart of a home, but it is a truth universally acknowledged that your bedroom is the quiet soul. The way you choose to decorate your bedroom isn’t just important on an aesthetic level – it has a pretty profound effect on your general wellbeing too. Giving your room a little TLC should definitely be at the top of your 2018 to-do list, because a better bedroom means improved sleep quality, and that means you get to be the best version of yourself you could possibly be. If you’re going to invest time and money into one room, this is the one to prioritise; as far as getting a luxurious night’s sleep goes – look no further than Dorelanbed. This Italian brand specialises in turning your bedroom into an oasis of calm where you can unwind after a tough day’s work, with quality and durability front and centre. Here are just a few ways to create the ideal atmosphere in your bedroom:



  1. Crack the colour code

The colours you choose to decorate your space with have a direct impact on the way you feel. You want your bedroom to be your own personal haven – somewhere relaxing where you can close the door on the rest of the world and have that much-needed (and well-deserved) ‘you’ time. So, which colours work best? For a calming effect, try these tones:

  • lavender
  • dark grey-blue
  • soft grey
  • cool blue
  • soft/neutral green

Once you’ve committed to a beautiful colour for your walls, it’s time to complement it with some vibrant accent tones. Add that little something special to your room by choosing luxurious linens and throws, or plush cushions to pull the room together and add that touch of class to your slice of paradise. Last but not least – the bed. Your bed is the centrepiece of your room and needs to be perfect. From size to mattress type and headboard style, you want something that makes a statement, suits your personality, and works with your colour scheme. Need some bedroom inspiration? We’ve got you covered.


  1. Comfort comes first

Three words: mattress, pillow, quilt. This is your holy trinity of comfort, and it certainly shouldn’t be neglected. How do you lock down what works best for you? Well, here’s some help! There are three main types of mattresses for your consideration: MyForm Memory, Pocket Springs and Twin System Technology. At Dorelanbed, every mattress and pillow is expertly designed based on in-depth studies into what the human body needs in terms of ergonomics. Whichever type you choose, you can rest easy in the knowledge that you’re sleeping on high-quality materials employing the latest in sleep technology.


  1. Perfect your Posture

We’ve already talked about how important it is to choose top-quality mattresses and pillows to get the comfiest and cosiest night’s sleep – but there’s more! The right mattress takes care of your spine and eases pressure on the joints, but the perfect pillow saves your neck (quite literally) from aches and any general stiffness or discomfort which you might get from lower-quality products. The three best ranges of pillow you can get are feather pillows, MyForm pillows, and hypoallergenic fibre pillows. No matter which type of pillow suits you, you’ll feel well-rested, rejuvenated, and ready to get up and take on the world after the perfect night’s sleep. Better posture means better sleep and a happier you!



  1. Find the right Temperature

The Maltese climate can be a fickle mistress at time, so having the right bedding is super important if you don’t quite fancy tossing and turning all night. In summer, at the very most, you’ll want a light fabric that feels good on the skin without clinging to you when it gets too warm. Winter means one thing – big, comforting quilts that feel like you’re being cuddled by a warm cloud. When you’re shopping for a quilt, you’ll hear the term ‘g/m2’ – that’s basically a way of measuring how warm or ‘insulating’ it is. In summer, you should aim for a lower count and in winter, you’ll want to go for a higher count, to keep your feet nice and toasty.
