Great climate in the bedroom

Great climate in the bedroom

The optimum sleep temperature is given as 16-18 ° C. However, it also depends on your own heat sensation. In a cooler room it is easier to sleep. However, if it is too cold or too warm for you, falling asleep will be difficult. The ambient temperature affects the body. When it's cooler, the body shuts down its activities to save energy. Then falling asleep will be easier.

The climate in the bedroom depends on several factors. Therefore, it takes about the day of some preparations to be able to go to bed every night at optimal sleep temperature. Basically, it is desirable to evenly adjust the bedroom to "sleep temperature". to keep. Before going to bed and after getting up you should ventilate briefly. A window can be tipped over to provide fresh air while you sleep.


mattress, bedding, duvet covers and bedroom textiles have an influence on the bedroom climate. It makes a difference whether they are made of synthetic or organic matter. Every night, the human body emits liquid, which is reflected in organic bedroom materials (also wood and wallpaper) or in the room air. The effort is different to get this liquid by airing out of the room. If you are sleeping at night with the windows closed, you should ventilate several times during the day.

The room

There are dormitories which, due to their location in the summer, heat up considerably or extremely cool in winter. The wall texture, sky orientation and window size are just as important as existing shutters, underfloor heating or radiators on the wall.

In many bedrooms, it is not possible to create the optimal sleeping climate in midsummer. In order to do the utmost, you break the windows completely for a short time in the early morning and, at best, create a draft. Afterwards not only the windows, but also the bedroom door are kept closed during the day. If you have a roller shutters, you can lower them so that the sun does not heat up the room. If such is not available, drawn curtains or interior blinds with reflective coating are still better than nothing in front of the window. If it has cooled down in the evening, it can be properly ventilated before going to bed again. Should it be stuffy and much warmer outside than inside, it is advisable to wait until the next morning to ventilate.

For those who have a separate bedroom, it is advisable to heat the room less or the heating even let it go. That also saves energy. However, then in the cold season it should be left out to leave the door open to "temper" the bedroom. With the warm air from other living rooms moisture flows into the bedroom, which can not be taken up by the cooler indoor air and then condenses on the walls. It is therefore better to heat the room with the heater and not allow it to cool down too much.

Indoor Plants

Houseplants also have an influence on the bedroom climate. Their use in bedrooms is controversial again and again. As long as they have light, they not only absorb oxygen, but also give it to their environment. However, their nocturnal oxygen demand is very low and therefore not alarming. House plants can contribute to a pleasant sleeping climate by evaporating moisture.

The interior design

Room colors have an influence on the human sensation of warmth. Yellow or orange walls make us feel warmer than neutral colors or cold colors like grays or blues. In a room with cool colors, the room temperature is perceived as 1-2 ° C lower than it actually is. The color of the room also affects the human mind. As a result, most people in a bedroom with blue-painted walls tend to calm down rather than being surrounded by vitalizing orange.
