5 Practical Gadgets for the Bedroom
The bedroom is a place that was traditionally just used for sleep. Back in the day, it was a faux pas to even have a television or a radio in the bedroom, so there wasn’t much to do other than sleep or read a book. Nowadays almost every bedroom, from a child’s to an adult’s room, has a television, so the bedroom is becoming more of a living room and a place to relax.
Here are five of the latest tech gadgets that can help make your bedroom an even more comfortable, peaceful and relaxing space.
1) The Phillips Wake-Up Light
For the majority of us who have to wake up at a set time through the use of an alarm clock, it can be a real shock to the system. The Phillips Wake-up Light helps to take that “alarm clock shock” away by gradually increasing the intensity of light in your room up until the point when your alarm clock will go off.
It is fitted with an energy saving bulb and designed to simulate a rising sun so that your body gradually comes out of its sleep mode and you won’t wake up in an initial shock. It also has a radio function that gradually increases in volume up until the time that you need to wake up.
2) The Lightsleeper
The Lightsleeper is a sleep aid device which projects a relaxing light pattern onto your ceiling. The Lightsleeper has many medical benefits for those who struggle to fall asleep and some even claim that it’s the best invention for the bedroom since the pillow. Following the light patterns with your eyes for a few minutes can help you start to fall asleep.

Rather than hanging your TV on the wall or having it displayed on a cabinet, you can discreetly hide your TV away inside the foot end of your bed.

New multimedia TV Beds are starting to enter the market with built-in speakers in the headboard and a subwoofer speaker under the mattress. There is a wide selection of makes and models to choose from and new fabric design TV Beds are giving consumers much more choice than just your traditional leather bed.
