Although getting the prescribed eight hours of sleep every night may be a part of a pipe dream, that is no reason not to make our bed and bedroom spaces dreamy. Our beds beckon us to relax, reflect, escape, and yes, sleep. All of these are made much better by a requisite am. Here are 10 Simple Ingredients for a Very Comfortable Bed:
1. Soft Serenity
If there is one term that is commonly associated with comfortable, it’s soft. To achieve a loftier level of luxury, use a cushy featherbed as the base for your bedding. As you’re sinking down, your comfort factor can’t go anywhere but up.
2. Not too Neat
Comfort comes in many styles and shapes, and for some, being comfortable means letting go and not wondering about being too perfect. This is the case here: no military-style clinic corners or over-coordinated items, only soft bedding that sort of slinks off the edge and invites you in.
3. Under Cover
A defined space produces comforting lines. When it comes to standard bed, closing it in a few can help you feel snug and safe. A cover bed draws a line in the sand around your sleeping area, making it a unique haven for invitees only. Whether your style is restful or romantic, a canopy overhead can envelop you in tranquility.
4. Dim the Lights
Serenity can be fostered beyond the edges of the bed. Room-darkening curtains give you a little rest from the bustle outside, even if it’s broad daylight. Add plenty of throw pillows, and you can lean back, prop yourself up, and get comfortable whenever the mood strikes you.
5. Peaceful and Pure
The secret to getting your comfortable mojo may be quite simple. Although we may grow in the chaos of the day, bedtime is when it should all wind down. Falling into a bed that’s dressed in pure, crisp white linens leaves you nothing but R & R to worry about.
6. Cozy Cableknit
When you think blankets, cozy materials, and sweaters probably come to mind. So why not combine your sweaters and bed? Think about how snug you feel in your favorite hand-knit sweater, then translate that concept to your bedding. Mmmm. Cozy.
7. Thrown Together
The pillows are provided, and the sheets are tucked in, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have simple access to some improvised cozying. Keep a couple of soft chenille throw blankets draped across the bed, and it’ll be hard to continue grabbing one and cuddling up.
8. Quilted Quiet
Create a feeling of getting away from it all, right in your bedroom. Country casual quilts, blankets, and a pair of warm socks are a clear invitation to chill out and stay awhile, whether you are a guest or the nightly resident.
9. Rustic Relaxing
If you’re fortunate enough to have a magnificent natural setting to soothe you, think of your bed as an extension of that environment. A rustic wooden bed frame and comfortable, no-frills bedding will make you feel renewed and relaxed.
10. Spell It Out
If you are still not sure how to get your bed looking its comfortable, perhaps going is the answer! Perched atop a soft down quilt, these Scrabble-inspired pillows send you precise information. Plus, you get to do the “Z” (as in Zzzzz?) for big points.
