The way you lay your bed will go a long way in determining whether you enjoy quality sleep or not. Making a bed can be such a hassle, especially when you have to add layers upon layers just to get the perfect feel.
It might seem impossible trying to get your basic bed to look dreamy like you see in catalogs but with the right efforts, you can achieve those looks without hassle.
With these four secrets, you can upgrade your bed-making skills and give your bed a facelift.
HAVE THE RIGHT MATTRESS
To enjoy a well-made and comfortable bed, you have to ensure that your mattress is of the right quality. If your mattress is old you should consider getting a new one or flipping the mattress if you can’t afford to invest extra coins into getting a new mattress. Something else you can consider is investing in a mattress topper as this would help you add an extra layer of comfort to your mattress.
START WITH A BASE AND THEN YOUR FLAT SHEET
Starting off with a good foundation is important and you do this right by investing in a good mattress protector to protect your bed from dust. If you are already using a mattress topper, you can choose to ditch going for a mattress protector.
Spread out your flat sheet on your layered mattress then tuck in the edges into your bedframe. You can choose to use double flat sheets or a fitted sheet and a flat sheet as these would help give your bed an extra hotel feeling. Ensure that you go for sheets that have a good thread count and are also clean. We have a collection of bed sheets that you can explore.
SPREAD ON YOUR DUVET
Once you have lain your sheets, the next step is to add layers of warmth and coziness to your bed. You can do this by introducing duvets and/or blankets. You can choose to go for duvet sets that come with bedsheets so you can have a complete look on your bed. Depending on your preference and the weather, you can decide on whether you just want to keep your duvet on your bed until you want to sleep or you would use it as a cover around yourself as you sleep.
Based on preference, you can choose to place as many pillows on your bed as possible. You should however keep in mind that you don’t want to have too many pillows that your bed looks choked. You can have a mix of throw pillows and sleep pillows just to create a more decorative look.
You can style your bed effortlessly by combining the right colours, textures, patterns, and sizes. If you just want the pillows for the look, you can have them piled away when you want to sleep –that is if you are comfortable with dealing with having to pile up and un-pile your pillow stack every time.
Making the perfect bed for you to sleep in every night can be one key to enjoy a goodnight’s sleep so you can wake up feeling refreshed the following morning.
