We need eight hours of sleep for a functioning healthy body. It has been a fact. Going to bed early and sleep enough should be our healthy goal. But how do we achieve this goal? The first target surely should be our bed. Not only because we sleep there, but it’s something we have control over, unlike work, chores, or stress.
The bedding system is not only about mattress and blanket. There’s more than that, especially if you want to bask in the luxury comfort after a long day. To make everything easier for you, we have come up with a list.
Are you on a budget?
When it comes to shopping, we have to be mindful of the wallet. Even if you aren’t on a tight budget, it would be awful if we ended up spending too much and still not getting what we truly needed!
First of all, putting a bed frame with a headboard is less costly than going for a full one. Secondly, for the mattress, shopping at brand stores might be more expensive than purchasing things from online shops.
The mattress and the supplementary layers
The vedette in your bedroom. It might be the biggest investment as well. If you have a bed partner, you will have to discuss with them about the size, the material, and the softness level.
Full and twin sizes are usually a few inches shorter than the queen size, so you might have to consider your height. Do you need softness and comfort, or support and firmness for your body? The material and the density will help you to decide.
The mattress topper
Mistakes happen. What if you bought the mattress and then realized it wasn’t the best for you? Before you go through the hassle of replacing it (with additional fees or not), we recommend using a mattress topper.
There are soft and firm toppers, and they will fix the uncomfortableness your wrong choice causes. It will prolong the prime time of your mattress and enhance your sleep experience. But, be informed that no topper can fix a sagging mattress.
It’s optional but highly recommended for many reasons. We don’t want to leave our costly mattress and topper exposed and unprotected. With the modern technology in use, you can easily find the perfect bed sheets that will add a touch of elegance to your room and protect the layers below from allergens, dust mites, and spills.
The blanket or the comforter
We suggest a combo of comforter and cover instead of 2-in-1. Whenever you have the chance to choose a removable cover, don’t hesitate to snatch it! It makes cleaning much easier. Besides, the separate comforters are usually more comforting and remarkably thicker.
So, do you want to sleep completely warm with a little weight keeping your body fixed, or is it better if the comforter is light and not too warm? You also need to make sure you aren’t allergic to the fill of the comforter. It all depends on your body and the weather where you live.
Your bed will look more sophisticated if you know how to play with the blanket! Are you into the elegant hotel look? Fold it at the foot of the bed. How about showing the gorgeous bed sheets? You can pull it all up or halfway.
The topping of the set
The pillows and the cases
The pillows will support your head and neck, hence, it should be high-quality. The cases embracing them will contribute to the aesthetics of your bedding system and maintain the nice condition of your hair. You’ve heard it right! If the material of the cases is not suitable for you, you might sweat at night and wake up with an unpleasant smell.
These items are the first things that meet the eyes. We need them to match the bedsheets in style and color. They will determine the tone of the bedroom. Would it be red and passionate, or creamy and dreamy? You’re free to be creative with the pattern, the texture, and the design.
It’s unexplainably satisfying to slip between comfy layers of a warm comforter and a smooth sheet, and that great feeling only comes if you are willing to invest both time and money. A perfect bedsheet will promise peaceful sleep and a healthy body in the long run.
