Attic Bedrooms You’ll Surely Fall In Love With

Attics serve a wide array of purposes, from being a storage space to a living area, depending on how you intend to utilize it. If you’re still hesitant about using that remote space in the uppermost area of your home, there is an array of reasons that may just convince you like the following:

1. Attics are usually spacious, especially if it was designed to go the full length of your home. Sure, the  vertical space may be limited, but with a lot of floor area, there will definitely be so much room for activities!

2. It can be the perfect master’s bedroom, if you’d like to have more privacy. Just make sure that it is a lot more accessible and maybe install a small bath in it as well, so you don’t have to take a long journey to the bathroom in the middle of the night.

3. Attic bedrooms are perfect for teenage children. The space and remoteness of their room can give them the privacy they want. Also, if your family is expanding, it can be a great solution to providing your growing child some space instead of having them share rooms with younger siblings.

4. Attic bedrooms can also serve as great guest rooms, especially for extended stays.

Aside from these reasons, the following images of dreamy attic bedrooms will further strengthen our argument that attic bedrooms are great additions to your home.

Can You Really Catch Up on Sleep?

With most of us settling with less than eight hours of sleep daily, it’s no surprise that many of us have already accumulated a massive amount of sleep debt. All those nights that you’ve pulled an all-nighter to beat a deadline or stayed up way too late to watch an extra episode or two of your favorite TV show will totally catch up to you, leaving you feeling groggy and tired while at work.

While it isn’t necessary that you sleep for more than seven or eight hours daily (as some folks can do well with just six hours of nightly sleep), it is important for everyone to get the right amount of sleep. However, there are still those times that losing sleep is inevitable. So in days like these, many ask whether it is really possible to catch up on your shuteye.

So, can you really repay your sleep debt? According to some experts, you actually can, but not in one snooze fest. What you can do is to sleep an extra hour or two per night. These evenings are called recovery nights, as you will be recovering from your sleep loss.

Be cautious when catching up on your sleep debt, though. Especially if you’re chronically sleep deprived, sleeping the weekend away may seem attractive but wouldn’t be ideal and may only damage your sleeping pattern even more by affecting your Circadian rhythm. However, sleeping in a little bit won’t hurt. Just make sure to sleep naturally on the weekends – go to bed when you’re tired and wake up without the aid of an alarm clock. Natural sleep will help mend your Circadian rhythm and could reset your sleeping patterns easily, thus helping you improve your sleep hygiene in the long run.

The best cure for sleep debt is prevention. Try improving your sleeping habits and you will surely find yourself in better health.

 

Outdoor Sleeping Spaces for Your Home

Since we live in a tropical country, there’s definitely no shortage of sunshine and warm weather all year round. This makes sleeping outdoors a common thing, as we’re always trying to get through the mid-day heat no matter what month it is. However, not many are still too keen about sleeping on a papag or a wooden bed nowadays. Especially with all the ideas you can get online, a modern twist for your outdoor sleeping spaces can already be pulled off easily.

To help you get started, we’ve rounded up a few outdoor beds that you can get inspired from. Check them out below.

An outdoor canopy bed is the perfect addition for your backyard, garden, or roof deck as it is very versatile, especially if you like to updating and switching your space’s look every so often. Complete it with a cozy mattress and maybe some type of overhead shade or some mosquito netting and you’re good to go for an afternoon outdoor nap.

Cabanas are the ultimate outdoor structures that typically house daybeds. Whether you have a pool or not, cabanas can easily be a great choice for your outdoor siestas.

If you have a porch, patio, balcony, or any kind of covered open space within your property, adding a bed can be a great idea to make it useful during the warmer months.
 Do you have some unused space in your property that has nothing in it? Or maybe an old shed or garage that doesn’t see much use anymore? Why not turn it into a backyard cottage or a detached bedroom? Not only can this create a whole new personal space for you, but you may even be able to use it as a guest room (or even rent it out) with lots of privacy should the need arise.

Outdoor beds are excellent ways to relax despite the heat, as well as extend the usability of old mattresses. Just remember, however, that if you’re going to use actual mattresses for your outdoor lounging and sleeping space, cover it with a water resistant material to prevent it from being soaked. Especially with the Philippines’ unpredictable weather, leaving a perfectly good mattress under the ever-changing elements may easily damage or even destroy your mattress.
