Sharing a bed with a partner is one of the best parts of any relationship. But even dozing off with our loved one can be tricky as soon as snoring, uncomfortable beds and mobile devices enter the equation.
A recent report found that over 10% of UK couples now sleep in separate beds. Everything from having unusual sleeping patterns to having children was found to be behind this trend.
Whilst itís perfectly normal to sleep in a different bed from your partner, for those who want to spend some quality zzz-time with their loved one, weíd recommend the following tips.
Fix the snoring issue
Around half of us snore at some point in our lives, and it can be a nightmare for anybody sharing the bed. Factors like alcohol, smoking and being overweight can boost the chances of being a habitual snorer.
Snoring is much more likely if you sleep on your back. Whilst you can tape a tennis ball to the back of your sleepwear to help you sleep on your side, there are some other great options.
These include getting an S-shaped foam pillow thatís designed to keep the airways open, and many people have found that getting nasal dilators can also be a good ﬁx.
Banish mobile devices
Most of us a little guilty of taking our smartphones and tablets to bed with us. With the alarming statistics that one-third of us check our devices after weíve turned off the lights, itís no surprise that our mobile friends can create plenty of tensions between the sheets.
In addition to this, the blue light emitted by smartphones and tablets can play havoc with our sleeping patterns. So be sure to turn your devices off at least an hour before hitting the hay.
But perhaps the best way to deal with mobile devices is to banish smartphones and tablets from the bedroom. Not only will the seriously improve the roomís feng shui, but it will also help you focus on your partner a little better.
Creating the perfect sleeping environment
We should also try and make the bedroom as inviting as possible. Making time for a little romance through some scented diffusers and soft lighting is a sure-ﬁre way to tempt your partner back into your bed.
But also make sure that the bed itself is suited for both partners. Whether the bed frame is luxurious velvet, ornate metal, classic wood, or timeless leather, thereís nothing like upgrading your bed at Bedstar to make your shared bedroom a much more inviting place.
Above all, itís about making a shared bedroom somewhere where you both want to spend some quality time together. And if that means plush cushions, scented candles, or classy bed frames, it can all make a big difference.
