How to set up the perfect room for sleeping
Say goodbye to restless nights!
This Betta Advice Guide outlines ways to set up your bedroom to ensure the prefect night sleep.
The Importance of Sleep
Sleep is a key contributor to your health and well-being. Getting enough sleep each night is very important, as insufficient sleep can negatively affect your concentration, levels of alertness and ability to think actively.
The Perfect Room
When it comes to getting a good night sleep, there are a few things that you can take care of in your bedroom to ensure good sleeping conditions:
- The Mattress
- The Light
- The Temperature
Your mattress is arguably the main determiner of you having a great (or not-so-great) night sleep. Which is why having a mattress that best suits your body is very important. But how do you know what type of mattress is best for you? Mattresses typically have different comfort layers, which affect the mattresses comfort feel. At Betta we make selecting the perfect mattress easy by categorizing our mattresses into three different levels of comfort feels: Plush, Medium, and Firm.
Plush, the softest out of the three comfort layers, a plush mattress is ideal if you sleep on your side as it will relieve pressure from your spine. Plush mattresses will also contour to your body’s curves and provide adequate support and conformability to smaller-sized people.
Medium, the most popular mattress choice, a medium mattress provides great support and conformability for average to small sized people. If you prefer to sleep on your back, a medium mattress will support your spine, back and neck while still offering a great deal of comfort.
A firm mattress provides a good level of support however only a small amount of conformability. This mattress is ideal for larger people who exert enough pressure for conformity. If you have a tendency to sleep on your stomach, a firm mattress will keep your spine aligned.
So think about your body, your desired comfort feel, and ask yourself if you have the right mattress in your bedroom.

The amount of light in your bedroom is another key contributing factor to a good night sleep. If you have sunlight creeping in through your window each morning, then perhaps it's time to think about investing in some blackout blinds. The darker your sleeping space, then the more chance you have at getting a better night sleep. Other things to consider include the electronic devices that you have set up in your room - particularly electronic devices with LED displays. These artificial lights might also be effecting your night's sleep as the body's biological clock works in rhythms that are set by the amount of light and dark the body is exposed to and this determines sleeping and feeding patterns, as well as brain activity, hormone production and cell regeneration. So make sure you turn off any devices in your bedroom that are not needed overnight.
If the temperature isn't right, then you just won't sleep tight!
With summer upon us, we all know how hot it can get. It is very important to think about the temperature of your bedroom, as heat can also affect your night sleep. If you're sick of waking up throughout the night due to discomfort caused by heat, then you may want to think about purchasing an air conditioning unit for your room. Split System Air-Conditioners with 2KW to 3.5KW are the perfect choice for bedrooms. These air-conditioners are designed for small-sized rooms, in comparison to large living areas.
So think about ways to improve your sleeping conditions and if there are any changes that you can make in your bedroom.
