Create the Ultimate Sleep Environment with These 6 Simple Upgrades
When was the last time you can honestly say that you had a good night’s sleep? Most people we talk to say that they either struggle to fall asleep or wake up constantly throughout the night.
Thankfully, there are many upgrades you can make in your bedroom to create an ultimate sleep environment to ensure you get night after night of superb sleep once again.
Here are 6 simple upgrades you should consider when creating the ultimate sleep environment:
Light and Noise Reducing Curtains
You may not realize how important light-blocking curtains are during certain times of the year, but during the summer months when the days are longer, they can come in handy. When you choose to use light and noise reducing curtains in your room, the curtains will block out the light and much of the noise, allowing you to sleep longer than you would if you subconsciously saw daylight or heard the slightest of noises.
Smart Ceiling Fan
Older ceiling fans could either be controlled by a light switch or remote control, but ceiling fans have now crept into the 21st century with smart home features. That means you can now control your smart ceiling fan through your Alexa device or another home hub. This is perfect when you are trying to fall asleep and feel warm or when you wake up in the middle of the night feeling chilly. Simply state what you want the fan to do and it will do it without you needing to get up.
It has long been known that lavender relaxes and soothes, and that is why more and more people are adding diffusers filled with lavender essential oil to their bedrooms. Simply purchase a diffuser and a high-quality lavender essential oil. Then follow the directions to go into a deep slumber night after night.
Air Quality Control
When you have your windows open throughout the year, it can be quite difficult to keep the air quality in your bedroom under control. Add in the dust and other things that accumulate inside this space of your home and you could find yourself struggling to breathe without knowing it in the middle of the night. An air purifier can help with this issue and it can work as a white noise machine while you sleep.
Adding a few plants will also help with the air quality control in your bedroom because they add extra oxygen. Place a few in strategic locations around the room and reap the benefits for years.
Lavender is pretty as well it helps lower blood pressure and stress levels making it a perfect bedroom plant.
A Good Mattress
A lumpy old mattress is not going to allow you to have a good night’s sleep, even if you have completed all the upgrades listed above. Therefore, we recommend investing in a good mattress, so you can be comfortable and drift off to sleep as soon as you lay down.
These six upgrades should have you experiencing the best sleep of your life in your new ultimate sleep environment. While you can make all these changes at once, feel free to do one of them at a time, as your schedule allows. You may not notice the changes immediately if you do them one at a time, but you will notice them once you have completed all the upgrades.
Whatever your needs may be to make your bedroom the ultimate sleep experience… from soundproofing your room, setting up an Alexa or installing a new ceiling fan, Handyman Larry has you covered, give him a call so you can be on your way to a good nights sleep.
7. A Weight Blanket
I can’t believe I totally forgot this one! Thanks to one of our commenters for pointing this out. Weight blankets add that extra deep sleep. The best way to pick a weighted blanket is by using 7-10% of your body weight to determine which weight to buy. So for individuals weighing 130-170 pounds would pick a 15lb blanket. These blankets help you get a deep sleep. You feel like you have been tucked into bed and it reduces your tossing and turning. Just if you were wondering….no they do not make it hotter. Amazingly these are very cool blankets.
Once again Happy Dreaming!

I love the idea of lavender plants in the bedroom!!
These are great ideas! I love my room and so does my husband. We have chosen real linen sheets and lots of pillow top bedding. A diffuser is a great addition.
Love real linen sheets. Great idea!
Sheets and diffuser are what I need to sleep well. One of these days I will find a pillow that works for me, too!
I also drink NUUN Rest as it has tart cherry in it and that helps me sleep. A nice cool room does wonders as well.
A comfortable sleep is so important! Thank you for sharing these tips.
Thanks for sharing these great ideas!
I love the idea of a smart ceiling fan!
I’ve never heard of a smart ceiling fan but now I want one!
Sleep is SO important! Thanks for all of the great tips! I also have left out having a tv in our room. Never helps me sleep.
Great tandem advice! I’m going to buy lavender plants for inside.. I have ot in my garden but great idea for the bedroom
Anything for a great night sleep.
Great recommendations! We’ve been using our lavender essential oil diffuser for a couple years now and love it. We’re looking into upgrading our bed and I definitely think an air purifier would be a good idea since we always have our window open and we live in Anaheim which has horrible air quality.
Great ideas, especially the lavender plants!
Great suggestions! Love the lavender plant suggestion and not just the diffuser!
Lavender always relaxes me!
Great suggestions! I had no idea you could get a smart fan! That’s awesome!
I swear by blackout curtains and having a fan on. Best way to go.
I just bought a new mattress last week. Now I sleep through the night. With my old mattress, meeven though I had a 2″ memory foam topper, I would wake several times a night. These are great ideas!
I could not sleep without my fan, but now I think I need to get some lavender!! 🙂
These are excellent suggestions! A good night’s sleep is so important to health and well being.
I love the idea of adding plants to the bedroom. We need to add them around our house in general. Maybe that’s something we can add to our project list for this weekend. Thanks for the suggestion.
Great ideas! We just got a new mattress and we are sleeping so much better now
Mattresses sure make a huge difference.
My Mother-in-law is having a hard time sleeping. I will share these tips with her. Thank you.
I have a diffuser, I never thought of putting it in my bedroom with lavender. Thanks for the great tip.
Love all of these ideas! We have a diffuser and air purifier in our bedroom and they both help the sleep environment.
These are great tips! It’s so important to have a good mattress.
We use black out curtains and love them. I would say the fan and air conditioner have become our white noise machines.
I love sleeping with our white noise machine.
I would also add a weighted blanket to this list. I got one for Christmas and I love it!! I sleep so soundly now. It’s right up there with the light-reducing curtains and air purifier.
Yes, I can’t believe I totally forgot about this. I think it is def. on the top of the list. I think I need to go add that for sure. Thanks 🙂
I’ve heard of black out curtains but I didn’t know there was noise reducing curtains too! I could use that especially since I live in the city and my neighbors are super close!
I can’t believe I have never heard of the smart fan yet. I must be behind the times! I would be interested in getting this because we don’t even have a regular fan in the master bedroom due to how the lighting was done when the home was manufactured. Thank you for sharing these tips!
