4 Tips to Help Your Kids Get the Best Sleep

Many, both young and old have, difficulty falling asleep. Most of us feel that we could get better sleep if we could eliminate any tossing and turning. Instead, we find ourselves struggling through our busy days, yawning at work or school, and just simply going through the motions.

Since over half of Americans (62 percent) report having sleeping problems on a regular basis, it's important to ensure that your kids are getting the absolute best sleep that they can, every single night. Sleep is essential for little ones; sleep improves their brain function, helps children grow, repairs bone, muscle, and joint function, and establishes positive interactions between synapses in the brain causing mental growth as well!

Bolton Furniture knows that parents need to integrate smart designs with their children's bedroom furniture, including; bunk beds, loft beds, or storage beds.

Why Youth Bedroom Furniture Design Matters

How you choose furniture and design your bedroom ensures that your children get their best sleep. Beds should always be placed in locations that a fair distance from light, windows, or doorways. As a matter of fact, melatonin, the hormone we produce to induce sleep, is only produced in complete darkness. Being away from light also helps your child to focus on sleeping without being distracted.  

Invest in High Quality Shades

Invest in high quality window shades for your children’s room. Shades help balance temperatures, blocking out sunlight and the cold.

Sound Promotes Smoother Brainwaves

Invest in white noise. It might sound silly, but giving your brain something to focus on not only lets you ignore sounds that might disturb you in your sleep. When children can focus solely on sleep and aren't distracted by background noises, they're more likely to sleep soundly through the night.

Allow your Kids to Create their Comfortable Space

Allowing your children to help with the design process of their bedroom can help them to feel extra cozy in their space, knowing that those monsters under the bed have nowhere to hide! Feeling comfortable in their personal space can go a long way, including encouraging better sleep.
