A great bed in the home is so worth it


The bedroom in the home (after all) is a place for rest and rejuvenation. It is important to ensure that you're sleeping in the right bed, in addition to having a bedroom free from clutter, and ideally from any technology if at all possible. Below are the essentials when it comes to sleeping in a bed that ensures a good night sleep.

1. Mattresses

Get this right. Do not allow overenthusiastic salespeople to pressure you. It would be advisable to spend at least 10 minutes lying on each mattress of choice before making a decision. Spending top dollar for a quality mattress is so worth it.

2. Protecting your mattress

After all, the mattress is a significant investment when it comes to buying a suitable bed for the home. Bed heads are rather affordable in comparison. Therefore, investing in a mattress protector is critical. The mattress protector gives you a bit more support when sleeping, regardless as to whether or not you toss and turn quite frequently, or you're one of those types who prefers to lie straight on your back all night. In case of any unforeseen accidents in the middle of the night, a mattress protector will ensure that your largest bedding related investment remains bulletproof to any stains.

3. The right duvet

Sheridan quilts have this concept nailed. It is great to ascertain whether or not the quilt (before purchasing) is designed to keep your warm in winter or not. Some quilts/duvets on the market are only good for summer. There is a temperature gauge on Sheridan quilts - on their packaging. This might (just might, and in most cases will) save you the need to buy an electric blanket and/or extra blankets for the bed come winter time. It all depends on whether or not your bedroom is carpeted or tiled, or has floorboards throughout.

4. Pillows

Essential to get this right as pillows support your neck. Read the labelling on all pillow products carefully before buying. Higher quality pillows are essential. Also, it is a great idea to invest in a (or a couple of) cushions to decorate your bed.

5. Other considerations

To ensure your bed at home feels like a bed at a 5-star hotel, it is worth $400 plus to buy a quality sheet and pillow set. Like anything, if you feel that you have outgrown your pillow and duvet covers, then sell or give them away. No different to your wardrobe in the home bedroom. Update your covers if your current ones have outgrown your interests. Of course, you know you should change your sheets frequently in keeping them clean. Ensure your bed is also dusted frequently, and keep a lint roller or similar to remove any unwanted pet hairs if you have pets in the home.
