Surround your bed with the privacy of a bed tent for a super cozy vibe. Whether you’re autistic like me or trying to hide from the cat pouncing on you at 3 a.m. (or both!) a bed tent is an excellent way to help you sleep soundly.


Amazon

Promising review: “I am a cat lady, I have five cats and I love them a lot, but sometimes it’s hard to sleep at night with all of them jumping back and forth on my bed.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “I do not have the money for a new vanity right now. Insert DIY project of covering my ugly pink bathroom vanity in marble contact paper.

I’m buying more for my half bath! I decided to do my tabletop in my laundry room and it looks great too. Make sure there is nothing on the surface as bumps will show through. Also, one roll is not enough, always buy more than you think you’ll need!” —Natalie Evans

It’s only been two nights, but those two nights have been the best sleep I’ve had in weeks! It’s soft and cushy and seems to hug my body exactly how it needs to in order to provide support. I LOVE this mattress pad and only wish I would’ve purchased it sooner.” —Shannon G

Amazon

I have these in my bedroom and they are great for when you need to shut out the noisy world to focus or unwind. They also have some insulating capacity for drafty windows!

Promising review: “We recently moved into a new home, which is about a mile or two from a major interstate. We didn’t really realize how noisy it was until night time when all the trucks are going down it. There is just an open field between us and the highway. I was skeptical when I purchased these curtains that they would actually block very much sound. I know layering up bath towels can block almost all the sound, but its also really ugly. These curtains reduced the interstate noise to just a low hum. I was actually able to get some sleep last night.” — John Samwore

Amazon

Over 37,000 people gave this cosmic projector a 5-star review. 

Promising review: “Holy moly!!! MAGNIFICENT!!! I have been so happy about a purchase in longer than I can recall. I LOVE ambiance and when I partner this cosmic projector (which is what I think it should be called!), with my sound machine that plays crickets, it takes me to another place of altered consciousness. In this crazy, chaotic, increasingly violent world I find it very important to recall the beauty and wonder in the world, and, as cheesy as this may sound, this little machine reminds me of that. Thank you so much for this magical machine!” —DiscernedCitizen

When I need to think through a problem or issue looking at the cloud fade from one color to the next is a good way to clear my head and gather my thoughts. I think this would also be a great addition to a child’s room or college dorm. The seller delivered promptly and I’ve had no issues with the cloud since I hung it up.” —Jennifer S.

Fill your room with rainbow light when the sun filters through by putting a no-glue privacy window film on your windows. And FYI, 33,000 people gave this easy-to-install film a 5-star review.


amazon.com

Promising review: “My kitchen window is on the sidewalk near the community mailboxes. Lots of people walking by. I loathe mini blinds which collect dust and grease. Especially since the stove is next to the window. Curtains are better, but still collect cooking smells and grease particles. I installed this in about 10 minutes. It lets in light, but hides me from nosy people.” —Gayle Smith

Improve the air quality in your bedroom big time with an ozone-free Levoit air filter. This little baby has a three-stage filtration system and the ability to circulate air over four times per hour.


amazon.com

The purifier filters allergens, mold, pet dander, dust, smoke, and cooking odors, and covers up to 129 square feet, and it has 26,000 5-star reviews!

Promising review: “I live in a condo. My neighbors smoke. I would sometimes notice a cigarette scent in my home. It was fleeting and not very strong. I found it offensive. Then I got this air filter. I run it in my bedroom for about half of each day. I turn it off when I am not home. It has completely solved the odor from my neighbor’s cigarettes. I never notice a cigarette scent in my condo anymore. It worked great for my situation. I only installed one filter in my bedroom. But it has improved the air in the entire condo. I turn the fan down to one- or two-speed when I sleep. I keep it very close to my bed. The fan is soft and produces a nice white noise effect. Although that may not be the intended feature, I enjoy it.” —SlySalimander

I had all my makeup in a makeup box and it was just a hassle to have to get to it every morning for work. Now I have all my makeup at my reach and it look beautiful as well!” —Erica

Swap out your white-light halogen, fluorescent, or LED light bulbs for bulbs that give off a warmer-tone light, because no one wants to feel like they are staring into the desert sun at midday when they step into their own bedroom.


Amazon

Idk about y’all but I’m super sensitive to bright lights and this is a topic I am passionate about! Read more about how to choose the right lightbulbs for your bedroom from Sleep.org. But basically, whiter bulbs emit light similar to daylight, which tells your body to stay awake, so warmer-colored bulbs can be better for the bedroom. And while you don’t have to buy fancy Edison bulbs, they will add a cozy vibe to your room!

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “What a great idea to have a hamper that can hang! My daughter’s room has limited space and I felt like I was always tripping over a laundry basket. This hanging hamper is awesome because it has a zipper at the bottom to release all the clothes, instead of having to pick all the clothes out from the top. Attractive green color, too!” —Ellie G.

Comfort yourself with a weighted blanket when you’re feeling stressed or ready to call it a night. Reviewers who struggle to slip into a deep sleep due to anxiety, stress, or night terrors swear by it. The comfort of the weight helps all types of people fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer!


Amazon

Promising review: “I was a doubter, but I was also desperate to get a decent night’s sleep. (I deal with severe chronic pain and insomnia). The first thing I did was insert the heavy blanket inside a cover. It was way easier than I expected. I was delighted with the material, the bamboo is silky and feels cool. But the big surprise was when I crawled into bed a good three hours before I usually manage to fall asleep. The next morning I realized I had gone to sleep within minutes — and slept straight through to morning. The first full night’s sleep — with NO sleep medication — in 15 years.” —Violet

Get it from Amazon for $44.90+ (available in 29 colors and sizes Twin–King and kid’s size; choose from 5–30 pounds of added weight).

Wake up gradually every morning by setting a sunrise alarm clock. It’s an amazing little device that mimics the calming light of sunrise to wake you up slowly — ideal for those of us who are dedicated to the art of waking up gently!


amazon.com

Reviewers say this clock also helps them feel less groggy in the morning!

Promising review: “This is one of the best purchases I’ve ever made on Amazon. And I shop here A LOT!! I’m not usually a morning person but the available sounds to wake up to are so peaceful and always put a smile on my face right when I wake up. I love the sunrise light. You can choose the brightness as well as color of light you prefer to wake up to. And I’ve noticed that the light actually slowly turns on several minutes before the alarm even goes off. My favorite part about this clock is actually the simplest part of it all. I had used my iPhone alarm clock for years and it was starting to either put me in a really bad mood when the alarm went off or it wasn’t waking me up anymore at all LOL. So I decided to purchase an alarm clock and I’m super happy I came across this one! This is 100{7b69b9de36438d361c7735609901fa0dd171d5610b3d58886a55f998d0ab2cb7} worth the purchase and I highly recommend this alarm clock to anyone. Especially if you aren’t a morning person like myself. Trust me, it helps. :)” —SLR

Enjoy essential oil aroma wafting through your room by adding a galaxy-style diffuser to your nightstand. The mesmerizing LED lights will help make your bedroom a relaxing place to be.


Amazon

Just be sure to be mindful of which essential oils are safe to use around pets if you have those little babes at home!

Promising review: This diffuser is awesome!! My son is emphatic that it’s the coolest diffuser he’s ever seen and he wants one in every room 😂 🐦 I’ve been using it in a bedroom and it effectively fills the whole room with aroma. The cover is actually glass, which I was really impressed by. The base and interior are a hard plastic. The buttons are conveniently located at the front and the cord was surprisingly long, which is nice when outlet space is at a premium. But the most impressive thing about this diffuser is how cool it is in the dark. My kids exclaimed that it’s like watching fireworks! We are all really enjoying it. I also love that Aroma Outfitters is a family business located here in the states. They stand behind this diffuser with a two-year warranty, which I’ve never seen before, so you really can’t go wrong. Tonight as our family was sitting around watching the diffuser my husband said it’s the best diffuser we’ve ever had! We’re all big fans!! —The Gales

Add a pop of color to your walls with an adorable neon cat light I may or may not be in love with. Those little whiskers just scream “welcome to the vibe cave.”


4everlight / Via Etsy

4everlight is a Hong Kong-based Etsy shop specializing in all kinds of neon signs.

Promising review: “This light is very good quality. It’s bright and has even-colored light throughout, and a solid base/mounting mechanism. It’s basically the size of a letter-sized sheet of paper.” —Craig

Get it from 4everlight on Etsy for $29.99+ (available in nine colors, can also choose two colors).

And workout from the comfort of your own room with a freestanding pull-up bar and dip station. If you’ve used one of these before, you already know it’ll give core, chest, bicep, and many more muscles a stellar workout!


amazon.com

It’s a good thing I *don’t* have the space for this in my bedroom, otherwise I would truly never leave it.

Promising review: “The main reason I bought this was for doing pull ups without a wall mount and it is very adequate for that. What I did not anticipate was how useful it would also be as a stretching aid. I deal with chronic neck and shoulder pain and this device is helping me manage that better than I have been able to for the last 10+ years. Never mind the pull ups, just grabbing the bar with one or both arms and lightly hanging/stretching —it is a godsend. The grips that accommodate the knee raises help with this as well. Again, doing the knee raises is good, too! But the stretching aspects this device can help with — perhaps it’s a niche interest but I’m leaving this review for those in that market as well. A++ solid recommend.” —A.Voss

Get it from Amazon for $185.99.
