3 Ways To Bring More Natural Light Into Your Home

Having a brightly lit room helps you relax better and helps reduce your stress. It is no wonder that when people feel stressed they go out to nature. Similarly, the lighter your room looks the better you can think properly. There is a scientific link between natural light and good mood. So it comes as no surprise that in countries that have huge seasonal changes like winter and summer, happiness seems to spring up during the seasons of spring and summer when people spend more time outside in bright light.  

With all the numerous benefits of natural light, it is important to take some steps to remedy the lack of natural light in your home/apartment. 

We’ve come up with a list of tricks to make sure your room has great natural lightning without spending an arm and a leg:

 

Have Shiny Surfaces:

Having shiny surfaces in your kitchen or your room will enable light to bounce off the surfaces and make your room lighter. You don’t need to go for white or cream colours either, just go for pale colours and that will do as well. So try to make your surfaces shinier to enable your room to be brighter.

 

Concentrate on the Walls:

The most efficient way of ensuring a bright room is to concentrate on the walls. This is even more important if you do not have enough natural lighting coming in through the windows. It’s important to concentrate on having bright, light-coloured walls. Having a white wall or cream wall brightens up your space instantly.

 

Outside Greenery:

Storage Ideas for Small Bathroom Spaces

Living in a big city or an ever booming country like Nigeria takes its toll on your pockets financially. Getting a huge space in a busy city just isn’t feasible so we make the best out of our small spaces – making these spaces livable and suitable for our style.

Small bathroom spaces can be demanding and getting the right storage for space can seem like an impossible feat. More importantly, a lot of our self-care products are kept in the bathroom, making space a bit clustered. Efficient bathroom storage is essential to have a well-functioning, sanitary bathroom.

To help you put your stuff neatly in their proper places, we’ve created a list of storage ideas so you can create a beautifully organized space even in the tightest of corners.

Showerhead Organizers

bathroom-caddy-bedsheetsexpress

Showerhead organizers or ‘caddy’ are great ways to make your bath or shower space useful. Additionally, most products are used in the shower anyway so it helps to have them right in front of you to be used at your convenience. There are also plenty of bathroom storages with suction cups that can be put in the shower.

Rework your Sink Area

Storages in small spaces are best kept in already occupied areas of the room. Making good use of those occupied spaces frees up your bathroom and prevents clutter. Have your carpenter build up a storage box around the bottom section of the sink. This is convenient for storing hair equipment and other products that aren’t of use in the shower.

Use a Trolley

Trolleys are convenient storage spaces because they can be wheeled in and out of the bathroom when they aren’t needed. In that way, after usage, they can be taken out and put in another room that has more space.

Go for Slimmer Storage

If your bathroom doesn’t have enough floor space, you can find storage spaces that are more vertical than horizontal, in that way they ride up towards the ceiling and take up wall space than taking up floor space.

 

We hope that these tips are of good help to you. There is no need to clutter-up your tiny space when you can have innovative new ways to maintain your space. Let us know in the comment section how you maximize your small bathroom space.

Take out one activity from your weekly schedule and don’t feel guilty about it. This helps free up your space and creates some time for you to get some rest or have some good old’ me-time. Take mundane activities or tasks out that help free up your time. It’s also ok to take a rain-cheque on that event you just don’t want to attend.

  1. Take a day off social media

Social media has been proven to increase anxiety. Social media stirs up your mental activity to focus on unimportant things like people’s lives and honestly, news that you really don’t need. Have a designated day allocated as your Social Media Detox Day. This tip in-particular has a world of benefits. Thank us later when you incorporate this into your weekly schedule.

  1. Write 10 things you love about yourself

It’s a good mental exercise to keep a journal. Even better is to write things you love about yourself down on paper. Don’t just think it, pen it down. It reaffirms all your good qualities and serves to remind you of how good you are. This exercise also comes in handy when you are feeling low – pen down why you are awesome!

  1. Invest in aromatherapy

If you didn’t know already, aromatherapy is a cost-effective mode of therapy. Done through the use of fragrances, it could help relieve anxiety and stress. Having an aromatherapy candle or diffuser in your room is guaranteed to help you relax, after a long stressful day.

  1. Be Still for 10mins

Being still for a couple of minutes helps you focused and centred. It could be sitting still for 10mins or any form of meditation you choose, but it is important to incorporate this into your daily habits. If you don’t, you stand the chance of burning out.

 

Incorporate these five steps into your week to get some much needed self-care that will help reenergize you both mentally and physically.

Why You Should Be Using Aromatherapy Candles and Diffusers

If you’ve heard about aromatherapy, you’ve probably been wondering what exactly it is and why people in the health and wellness community seem to rave about it and all its benefits.

Aromatherapy is a holistic treatment that uses essential oils and plants extracts to improve the wellness of the mind and the body.

It is time for you to jump on the train of aromatherapy and reap its benefits that have been used for centuries before us. We’ve listed 4 reasons why aromatherapy should be incorporated into your wellness and self-care routine.

  1. It is Scientific

Firstly, aromatherapy is actually scientifically proven to aid in wellness. This is because it uses all-natural essential oils and plants extract to improve your health. There is evidence to show the connection between certain extracts and relaxation, reduction of nausea, elevated moods and other psychological benefits.

  1. There is an Aromatherapy for Everything

The diversity of nature and its plants means that there is almost always an essential oil for all wellness issues. The benefits of aromatherapy are endless because of its endless varieties. Take this as an example: peppermint oil can relieve nausea, lavender oil is used to relax you and relieve anxiety, and lemongrass has antiviral properties and is great for cleansing your digestive system. These examples are just some of the benefits from a few essential oils!

  1. There are no side-effects

Aromatherapy has no negative side-effects! So now you have safer wellness options to choose from than succumbing to other harmful medical means. Think of all the side-effects of the pharmaceutical drugs that help relieve headaches or that help put you to sleep. With aromatherapy, you need not worry about all those negative side-effects you are scared of.

  1. Aromatherapy is all Natural

If you are picky about your wellness and are the kind that likes to ensure that you live an organic and natural life, then aromatherapy is for you. Obviously this is not to say that there aren’t some brands that mix natural with other artificial infusions. Know your brand, and choose natural essential oil blends.

 

The benefits of aromatherapy are endless and should be invested in for wellness purposes. Because of the wide variety of its benefits and the broadness of aromatherapy, Bedsheets Express provides its customers with a range of aromatherapy candles and diffusers to increase their wellness.

3 Ways To Make Your Bathroom Feel Like A Spa

Spas are refreshing and we often schedule spa dates when we want to pamper ourselves, distress and re-energize. Our perception of a spa is a place that is soothing, where you can come, relax and forget your problems for a period of time.

Since we cannot afford the luxury of visiting spas every day because it just isn’t cost-effective, the best way to solve this essential self-care problem is by creating the spa experience at your home.

By turning your bathroom into your mini spa, you create a relaxing sanctuary that you step into every day. This makes your everyday tasks easier – because you start your day with a relaxing bathroom experience and end your day with that same experience when you get home.

Below we have listed fun and easy ways to make your bathroom feel like a spa:

  1. Leave a candle in your bathroom:

leaving a scented candle in your bathroom - bedsheets express

The act of putting a candle on before you soak yourself in the bath after a long day sets the pace for relaxation. Having a candle burning in your bathroom while you soak yourself in the bathtub helps ease your stress. It is also important that you use candles that contain essential oils. Candles that contain essential oils have aromatherapy benefits that will medically help you reduce stress and manage anxiety and agitation.

  1. Have your Towels exposed and folded neatly:

Something just as simple as having your towels neatly folded and kept in the bathroom will make a world of difference in elevating your mood. So bring all those towels out of the closet (if that’s where you’ve been hiding them) and display them neatly in your bathroom.

  1. Bring the Outdoors In

Nature is the ultimate calmer. Having plants in your bathroom provides an escape from your busy everyday life. Moreover, plants help rid the air of chemicals which in return aids your breathing while you relax in the bathroom.

By incorporating these three things in your bathroom, you create a mini spa for yourself without even realizing it. Every day can be a little spa experience when you focus on some much-needed self-care.
