Creating a Cozy Bedroom

by Anna P. | May 10th, 2011 | Home Shopping

One of the most important rooms in our homes is the bedroom. It’s the room we wake up in and go to sleep in. It’s the room where we feel most comfortable. It’s a place where we can be alone with our thoughts or ideas. It’s the one spot in the house we can get away from all the madness.

Find the Perfect Mattress

Sleep is just as important to your well-being as it is to your health. The most important way to ensure a good night’s rest is to invest in a quality mattress. It doesn’t have to be fancy or high-tech, but it should be designed to support your body while remaining a comfortable surface to sleep on.

Shop for Cozy Bedding

Next, you need to invest in a few bed essentials like a comforter, bed sheets, and pillows.  With comforters, you’ve got several options: classic quilt, down-filled comforter, or large blanket. Which you choose for your bed is a matter of personal comfort and cost (comforter will often cost you more). You can save money by purchasing a complete bedding or sheet set; however, make sure that you know what is included in the set, because each package can vary. (Some sets only come with sheets and pillow cases, while others also come with a comforter). It’s  a good idea to know that even though most sheets are made with cotton, not all sheets are the same. Thread count and fabric type make all the difference so take note as you shop. The higher the thread count, the softer the sheet will be.

Sleep on Cozy Pillows

Basic bed pillows are all you need to get a good night’s rest, but that doesn’t mean you should buy any pillow. The best pillows are the classic down feather or down-alternative/hypoallergenic pillows. They are softer and more durable than other types.
