10 Ways to Make Your Bedroom More Relaxing

Our bedrooms are the main places we go to relax, rest up and feel better for the next day. But, with the vast amount of lockdown time this year you may be starting to see it in a different, not-so-great light.

It’s important to look after how we view our bedrooms though to make sure that we’re getting the best rest possible, eliminating the chance of having a bad night’s sleep.

Here are some top tips for how you can recreate your bedroom as a fantastic place to chill out again.

A Dedicated Working Space

This year has made working from home a standard for many, and if you are having to do so without a study/office then there’s a chance you’re currently sat in bed on your laptop working.

Try to make sure that you have a dedicated area away from your bed to do work at though, just the simple act of getting out of bed in the morning and sitting elsewhere with help with stopping to associate the bed with a place of stress.

Tidy Up

As the saying goes, ‘tidy home, tidy mind’. Now it’s more important than ever that your bedroom is free of any mess. If you’re working from the bedroom, it’ll just distract you. Vice versa if the room is clean and tidy you can admire the items in it a lot easier, and it’ll be a much warmer welcome at the end of the day.

Treat Yourself to New Bedding

The right bed linen set becomes a comforting thing to see at the end of the day, but changing it up every so often for fresh, new bedding can be exciting.

Psst… we have some beautiful new bedding we’ve recently released as part of our Winter 20 collection, check it out on the Christy site here.

Redecorate your Walls

Sometimes something as simple as just a new colour on the walls, or going over a colour which might be starting to fade, can help you see your bedroom in a totally new light.

Maybe try a yellow-toned colour over the Autumn/Winter period to help lift your spirits and remind you of sunshine.

A Bedroom Companion

Now, you can interpret this however you like because new family members in the way of pets are incredibly helpful for decreasing stress levels, but if you can’t have a dog or cat for any reason then try to keep a living plant in your bedroom.

Not only will plants be a great aesthetic touch but they can also help with purifying the air in your bedroom, which could help you get a much better sleep.

Lighting Candles

A fragranced candle will both make your bedroom smell lovely and also add a great atmosphere late at night. It’s a perfect little trick to help you get some sleep, especially if you try out some lavender scented candles. (But make sure that you don’t fall asleep with them lit!)

Choose the Right Lighting

When it comes to lighting for your bedroom, one key thing to consider is that you have the right amount of light in your room. Of course, late at night when you’re trying to sleep then blinds or curtains to block out light from outside are fantastic, but if you’re trying to look for something in your room it might be best to go for LED soft white light bulbs. Additionally, investing in bedside lamps is a must for making sure the room isn’t too bright just before bed.

Keep Electronics Out of the Room

Getting yourself an actual alarm clock for the mornings can be a big help for making sure you get to sleep as soon as possible. If you only have your phone to rely on, there’s a big chance you’ll think about having a quick scroll through social media which can easily turn into hours if you get carried away.

Likewise, if you keep your laptop out of the room then that will help with disassociating the bedroom with work late at night.

Make your Bed in the Morning

A pretty simple way to make sure your bedroom keeps feeling cosy and relaxing, making your bed at the start of the day not only helps to keep it looking tidy (especially if you’re in the room working throughout the day) but also helps to make it look inviting at the end of the day.

Mix Things Up a Little

If you have the same prints up on your walls all year round, it might be a good idea to try switching them up with prints from elsewhere in the house for a little change of scenery. Even just swapping prints, cushions or just decorations from the bedroom with ones in the living room could just give your bedroom an extra something to help you appreciate the room a little more.

There you have it, ten ways to help your bedroom become a more relaxing place to end up at the end of the day, regardless of whether or not it’s also your work space.

Top Tips for Keeping Warm Over the Colder Months

December onwards can be difficult if you’re someone who craves heat, and even if you’re working from home it doesn’t necessarily make it any easier to stay warm and cosy.

Read on for some of our top tips of how you can try to stay as warm as possible.

1. Regular Hot Drinks

It’s a simple fact that most people love to get their day going with a nice hot cup of tea or coffee, but if you’re not a fan of either of these then it can be difficult to consider starting your day by turning the kettle on.

However, considering everything that’s happened this year, this winter is the perfect time to decide to start treating yourself with a warm cup of hot chocolate. Not a fan of hot chocolate? Then if your aim is just to keep yourself a bit warmer there’s nothing wrong with simply boiling some water to drink.

Bonus warmth – the mug itself will heat your hands up a great amount!

2. Use Your Curtains

When it’s light outside, make sure to keep your curtains and blinds open to let in any heat. Of course, in these long, dark days that might not be for long but when it does go dark make sure you’re still using the curtains to your advantage – shutting them will add another layer of insulation and keep the warmth in your rooms.

3. Invest in a Good Throw

During the cooler months, it can be easily argued that nothing beats being in your warm, cosy bed. But having just bed linen without a throw can still be far too cold, especially in the peak of winter.

For this reason, we recommend investing in a good throw. Not only will it keep your bed warmer in general but the right throw can make any bed set look all the more fancy. (And you can even use it for some extra warmth whilst working).

Christy Agnes Throw
Christy Agnes Throw

At Christy, we have a range of beautiful throws that will add both warmth and a touch of style to your bedding, including our Christy Agnes Throw.

4. Make/Buy a Draught Excluder

Any gaps in doors can cause cool air to enter a room and can take away precious heat that has built up. So, one of the most important things you can do is make sure that any gaps are filled up to stop this. Draught excluders can help to combat this issue, and if you’re looking for a weekend project to have something to do then you can follow this guide here from Ovo Energy to make your own super cute sausage dog draught excluder!

5. Swap out your Sandwich for a Hot Lunch

Similar to making sure you have a hot drink, having something warm for lunches is a quick-fire way to warm yourself up for the rest of the day. Trade in your salad or sandwich for a nice warm bowl of soup instead.

6. Layers

Adding layers to your bedding is important for keeping your bed nice and warm at night but it is also a must that you make sure you yourself are wearing enough layers on a day-to-day basis. It’s especially important if you’d rather not end up spending a large amount on your heating.

If a dress code isn’t an issue, we recommend our Supreme Velour Bath Robes. Not only do they feel nice to touch but they’ll warm you up in no time if you just use them like a dressing gown!

Supreme Velour Robe in Raspberry

Additional bonus – in Raspberry it’s a perfect festive-themed colour!

7. Fingerless Gloves

Fingerless gloves are perfect if you suffer from cold hands a lot, as it can be extremely frustrating when your hands start to seize up from being too cold whilst you’re trying your hardest to write anything. Fingerless gloves are particularly useful, they’ll keep your hands nice and warm whilst still letting you type as if you didn’t have gloves on.

8. Move More

Don’t worry, we’re not suggesting that you start going on marathon runs for the first time or anything in the middle of winter! Just a little extra movement can go a long way by moving more muscles and warming you up. Try moving your legs more often when you’re sat down.


And that’s our top tips for keeping warm in the cooler months! If you have any other ideas, let us know in the comments below!

Meet The Christy Team: David Eccles

Meet one of our longest standing staff members, David Eccles, our Sourcing Manager here at Christy in this weeks meet the team.

David Eccles: Sourcing Manager at Christy
David Eccles: Sourcing Manager

What is your background?

A long time ago I studied textiles at college which gave me a good grounding in all things textile and particularly manufacturing.

One of my early jobs at Christy was one of the team of production managers in the mill. Which means of course that when I’m dealing with supply factories, they can’t pull the wool (err or the towel) over my eyes!

What is your role at Christy?

I am the sourcing manager.

Describe a typical day in your shoes?

Like everyone, I start by sifting through all the emails. Most of my contacts are 4-5 hours ahead so my inbox is already pretty full when I log on. It’s all product details, prices, despatch dates, delivery plans etc etc, not in any way exciting. But I do get a bit of foreign travel occasionally which livens things up. I am also in contact with some of our customers too, often I’m called upon to discuss supply, products, quality etc. A particular recent highlight was travelling to Dubai for a sales meetings with a customer

What’s the best thing about working at Christy?

I’m sure everyone will say the people, but it’s true. The office camaraderie makes it a pleasure to come to work

What is your biggest achievement so far?

After all this time, it’s not easy to pick a biggest, I suppose spending 43 working years and never ever being unemployed could have some merit.

What is your favourite Christy product and why?

I’ve always like the Renaissance towel. I was instrumental in its creation nearly 30 years ago and it’s still going strong.

What is your favourite quote/book/podcast?

My best recent holiday reads were:

The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared By Jonas Jonasson. Truly a worldwide adventure

And my best recent non-fiction was the life story of Lord Lonsdale, known as the Yellow Earl. Hugh Lowther, 5th Earl of Lonsdale. A real life adventurer who led a truly remarkable life.

What is your hidden talent?

None whatsoever, If I had any talent there’s no way I’d be keeping it hidden

When you are not at Christy, what is your favourite thing to do?

My wife and I are big music fans, we have been to may festivals and gigs over the years. We are really looking fwd to going to our next gig after lockdown is over.

Our current faves are local North West bands Cabbage, Blinders, John Bramwell, She Drew The Gun. Check them out, they are great.

I am also a season ticket holder at Bolton Wanderers but at the moment that’s nothing to shout about, although a football highlight was being at the Allianz Arena to watch BWFC get a draw against Bayern Munich.

Who inspires you?

We should all be inspired the work done by the NHS, national heroes all of them, including my wife of course.

If you were stranded on a desert island what would be your 3 luxury items?

I suppose while we are in lockdown, it’s a bit like being stranded on an Island!

  • Hummus – Not necessarily luxury of course, but I love it
  • A big thick blanket for those cold nights (A Jaipur Throw will do it)
  • And my mobile phone – so I can call a helicopter to come and get me

What’s your favourite desk snack/drink?

Oh no it’s a slippery slope all those treats, especially when there are lots of birthdays in the office. When we all get back in, the office table might be piled up with treats from all of those who have had birthdays during lockdown.

Are you a morning person or night owl?

Night owl probably, but that does make it tricky when my alarm goes off at 5.45am to get the 6.45am train to work.

 
 

Too hot to sleep?

Don’t compromise on your zzz’s when the temperatures soar and it’s too hot to sleep, get the perfect set up with Christy and sleep easy when the heat heightens.

Too hot to sleep

It has been super hot this week and there has been many reports of some serious sleep struggle over the last few nights. Know the feeling? Read our top tips for when its too hot to sleep below.

TOP TIPS For Cool Nights:

  1. Dampen a face cloth with cold water and rest it on your forehead for an instant refreshing ‘aahhhhh’ feel.
  2. Keep your bedroom curtains or blinds closed throughout the day to help keep the heat out.
  3. Ensure you have plenty of water to drink. They last thing you need is dehydration!
  4. Hot dog? Run a towel under the cold tap, wring it out and lay on the floor for your pooch to cool down on.
  5. Ditch the duvet. If your duvet is any higher than 4.5 tog, you are going to melt.
  6. Go with Tencel Tm bed linen, it helps to keep you cooler as the fibres can be softer than silk and cooler than linen. It also absorbs more moisture than most cotton and quickly discharges it.

What are your favourite tips on keeping cool when its too hot to sleep?

I will then wait for Janet to go into a meeting for the rest of the day so I can talk, before completing my scheduled brew-round at 13:30.

Shows how much I know…

What is your favourite quote/book/podcast?

I watch virtually every episode of The Joe Rogan Experience (JRE) – my favourite podcast, which is also streamed live on YouTube.

If you were stranded on a desert island what would be your 3 luxury items?

Cholula Hot Sauce, water-to-ethanol making kit, SPF 100.
