Disrupted sleep affects your whole life. From your mood to your productivity, a tired you is not your best self. A healthy sleep schedule is crucial to your overall well-being, so why do we set ourselves up with anything less than the best? Our beds should be our sanctums, a place for full relaxation and rest. Without the right tools for a good night’s sleep, it’s no wonder we wake up feeling groggy and unrested. So how can we fix our bedroom blues? Transform your bedroom into a sleeping paradise by upping your bedding. Make sleep deeper, sweeter, and more luxurious with these tips and tricks to elevate your slumber space.
Start at the bottom and build a foundation of soft but firm comfort by adding a mattress pad to your bed. With so many different options for depth, firmness, and support, a mattress pad can transform even the oldest, squeakiest mattress into a whole new bed. It’s a simple, easy way to make a big difference to your sleep quality and comfort levels. Plus, most mattress pads are affordable and require no setup; just add them to your bed and enjoy. You’ll notice the difference quickly, and your sleep quality will gradually increase as you adjust to your new comforts.
To get the best sleep possible, treat yourself to quality bed sheets. Whatever size mattress you sleep on, dress it up in the sheets of your dreams. There are many different materials and textures, from soft, delicate cotton to sateen and silk. You can be as fancy as you want. Throw away those jersey sheets you’ve had since college and upgrade to a better bed sheet. You’ll notice the benefits after one night of sleep, and the sheets will have you feeling like royalty.
After you’ve settled on sheets, the bed covering comes next. Update your comforter or duvet to enjoy a luxurious, comfortable sleep. If you’re redecorating your bedroom, the comforter is a great piece to draw the eye to your bed. The bed should be the centerpiece of your room, so pick something that matches your taste. Choose a fun, bright color, or go with a pattern. The options are endless for matching your bed to your personality and personal style.
To keep your head supported and comfortable, don’t skimp on pillows! Go for the right fit for your personal taste and comfort level. There are so many levels of softness and firmness, so you can mix and match your comfort levels and needs. Once you find the pillows with the right support, get pillow cases to match your comforter or duvet. Pillow cases and shams are great accent pieces, so don’t be afraid to go for a bold pattern or design to complement the colors in your room. A good pillow is an investment, so don’t let yourself suffer from neck pain, back problems, or restless, sleepless nights. Set yourself up for success and peaceful slumber, night after night.
For cooler, cozier nights, stock up on extra blankets to stay snuggly and warm all year long. Quilts, throw blankets, and fleece blankets are great options to have on hand when someone wants to cuddle and stay warm. There’s nothing better than getting under a blanket and wrapping yourself up on a chilly evening. From houseguests and pets to kids and movie nights or sleepovers, keep everyone warm and comfortable with enough blankets to go around.
You deserve a good night’s sleep every night. No matter what your days and nights are filled with, your bed should be a place for inner peace, relaxation, and rejuvenation. Build your bed into the ultimate comfort space that you feel safe in, free to reset and replenish your body with sleep.
Whether you snore, talk in your sleep, toss and turn, or sleep like a baby, get the best sleep you’ve had in years by taking your bedding to the next level. Your body and mind will thank you, and you’ll reap the benefits in only one night.
