Your bedroom should be an oasis of peace and calm. Having a restful sleep is paramount to health and well-being and it’s more valuable than anything else in the world. So how can you turn it into a space that you never want to leave?
If you find that you sleep your best when you’re staying in a hotel, it could be to do with the extra comfort that a hotel bed can afford. After all, being comfortable is essential when it comes to sleep quality. With that in mind, we’ve brought together some bedding essentials that will turn your bedroom into a luxury sleeping spot that you’ll won’t be able to wait to enjoy.
The Right Bed
The very first port of call when it comes to making your sleep as cozy as possible is to invest in the best possible bed to suit your needs. Remember that a double bed isn’t always large enough for a couple to sleep in, especially if you’re larger than average. A king-size bed is often a much better choice, and a super-king could be even better if you have a large bedroom and want the most luxurious sleeping space possible. The best bed will be easy to assemble and will be the perfect size to allow you and any sleeping partner to stretch out and relax.
A Comfortable Mattress
The next step is to purchase the most comfortable mattress that you can find. Of course there is no one-size-fits-all idea of a comfortable mattress. Some people prefer the firmness of an orthopedic mattress while others like the softness of a pocket sprung bed. Still others want a memory foam mattress to form around their shape as they sleep.
You should choose sheets that have at least a thread count of 300. Lightweight and soft, they should allow your skin to breathe during your sleep. Egyptian cotton is always a popular choice thanks to its high quality.
During the summer, a quilt is often sufficient for your bed, allowing it to feel airy and light during the warmer months of the year. When winter rolls around, a duvet is often a better choice. It will make the room feel much cozier and keep you toasty on chilly nights.
One of the most luxurious things you can add to your bed is a satin pillowcase. It really does improve the texture and appearance of your skin and hair and it also makes the bed look and feel much more glamorous.
A Comfortable Pillow
Don’t forget to choose a comfortable pillow too. Memory foam is often a good choice as it will mold to the shape of your head and neck to offer you optimal support as you rest. If your pillows are old and worn, they won’t be able to offer you the support that you need to help you get a restful night of sleep. If you don’t like the firmness of memory foam, there are many other types of pillow including gel pillows for added coolness if you tend to get hot during the night or bamboo pillows to cut down on allergens. You should test out some different pillows to determine which is best for you before you buy.
Once you’ve made your bed, it’s time to add the final touches. A beautiful and traditional quilt could make you feel as though you’ve stepped back in time to a simpler age, while a furry and fluffy throw could add the extra layer of comfort and coziness that you desire. A few throw pillows added as a finishing touch will complete the luxurious look and will also give you some extra back and neck support if you’re sitting up in bed reading late into the morning on a weekend or relaxing in the evening before sleep.
Follow these top tips and you’ll find that your bed is definitely your favorite spot in your entire house. You’ll certainly never want to leave it when you choose the right bed linen and accessories that turn an ordinary space into a glamorous and cozy boudoir.
