A recent study showed that the average American spends more than one-third of their lives in bed. Our bedrooms are considered to be our safe haven that we resort to at the end of every day and don’t want to leave every morning. A comfortable bed is what makes or breaks any bedroom. Many people who suffer from insomnia, spend most of their lives blowing money on sleeping pills and wasting their time waiting for doctors’ appointments. When the solution could be so obvious that many forget to check; your insomnia could be a result of an uncomfortable bed. We found some new ways that you can make your bed more comfortable to be able to enjoy a good night’s sleep again.
The Essence Of Every Good Bed Is A Comfortable Mattress
Regardless of the number of pillows you add, the quality of comforters, or using the latest technologies in night lighting, a bed is only as good as the mattress you choose. People who usually sleep on their backs prefer firm mattresses that will also make them feel like they are sleeping on cloud nine. In order to create this bed and that glorious feeling, you need to invest in a good-quality mattress. Sure, they cost more money at first; however, they save you a lot of money, in the long run, instead of ending up with a lumpy one after only a month of purchasing it.
A Memory Foam Mattress Topper
If you need to revamp your bed and upgrade your mattress, but you aren’t ready to spend the right amount of cash on a good mattress, then there is only one solution. You can choose a mattress topper to make your mattress firmer or softer. You can also use them to protect your new mattress and prolong its lifespan by adding a nice, soft comfortable layer that works as a safeguard. They also vary in thickness; you can choose from 4 inches and up to 8 inches to suit your needs and taste.
There Is No Such Thing As Too Many Pillows
The support provided by pillows for your neck and upper back could either leave you feeling well-rested or cranky for the rest of the day. That’s why choosing the right material for one or two pillows is so important for the quality of sleep. Other than that, pillows provide comfort and a feeling of safety that can’t be provided otherwise. There isn’t a right way or a wrong one here; the right number of pillows only depends on your personal preference.
Add Silk Pillowcases
Not just for how comfortable and luxurious they feel, but silk pillowcases are the secret weapon for most beauty gurus out there. If you have heard of the CG method, you know that they will make your curls stay defined and fresh for a longer period of time. Even if you don’t have curly hair, silk pillowcases don’t suck out all the moisture from your hair. Besides your hair, you won’t have to worry about breakouts anymore. Silk pillowcases tend to not cause any friction against your face, which makes your skin smoother and healthier.
Get Rid Of Sheets
There is a reason why sleeping in hotels always feels more luxurious and comfortable. The secret is they never use sheets. Think about it, you have to choose the perfect linen sheets, and you have to iron them after every wash, just to end up with them tangled around your leg. Instead of all this hassle, you can just buy a couple of washable duvet covers made of natural fibers such as cotton, linen, or flannel. That way, you won’t have to worry about making the bed every single day while still enjoying a good night’s sleep.
You Can Choose A Down Comforter
Since the type of bedding is very crucial to how your bed feels, it’s time to settle the argument between duvets and down comforters once and for all. Duvet comforters are easier to maintain, you can just remove them easily and fit them in the washing machine to be washed. They can also be used instead of sheets as we have explained. On the other hand, if you decided to go with a down comforter, you would have to top your bed with sheets but they feel more comfortable and warmer. Because real bird feathers are used to make down comforters, they are more expensive and can trigger allergy symptoms. Not to mention that some people might have a moral dilemma with using them. However, the use of real feathers leads to a softer and fluffier comforter which could be game-changing when it comes to increasing the comfort of your bed.
If you live somewhere where the sun barely rises for two hours a day, or you never seem to get warm in the winter, investing in a good heavy-weight blanket is essential. But what if we told you that you don’t have to go through the first 15 minutes of the ice ages every time you climb into bed? You can just turn on your heated blanket 15 minutes before bedtime and it will be warm for you by the time you get into bed.
Add Your Personal Touch
White bedding may seem like a classic choice. They look more inviting, bright, and easy on the eyes. But adding other colors and accents to your bedroom will make the room look more like you. Do you prefer all-black to satisfy the goth in you? Do you love a colorful bedroom that looks boho? Or do you prefer a minimal bedroom with a modern twist? Add the items and colors that speak to your soul to end up with a bedroom that you feel yourself in and you will be comfortable. You can also add some scented candles or use a mix of your favorite essential oil mix in a diffuser to make the room smell and feel more relaxing. If you don’t have a diffuser, you can mix some lavender oil with some water for a relaxing scent that will send you right to sleep.
Comfort is Everything
Investing in high-quality mattress, pillows, blankets, and a good comforter will pay off in the long run. It’s okay to wait if you are not financially ready to upgrade your bedroom in the sort of way that will give you the quality of sleep you deserve. You can always wait and do simple tricks in the meantime until you can make the financial commitment. Cheap mattresses just aren’t worth it. Do your research until you find the right bedroom essentials that transform your bed within the budget that you have set for yourself to make it seem like a luxury hotel room without breaking the bank.
