Every night we’re supposed to get a solid 8 hours of rest; we all know that, but how much is our bedding getting in the way of a good night’s sleep? Research shows that high-quality bedding might have the power to improve your life significantly, suggesting that there’s a strong link between how well you sleep and how good you feel.
Our bed linens boast some of the most refined weaves and finishes available, along with rich, long-staple cotton fibers and soft, single-ply thread counts. This is all just for the sake of ensuring the best sleep possible. Fine bedding can help make you a happier and healthier person and give you many benefits, right from boosted immune systems to more productive workdays.
You should know that sleep influences your overall mental health; that is why sleeping poorly usually winds up making you feel cranky. According to a study conducted by Harvard University, getting the proper amount (i.e., 6-8 hours) of rest every night can help combat depression and promote emotional stability.
Beautifully designed bedding can enhance the look of your room in many different ways. A designer-looking bed gives you a soothing feel as soon as you enter your room. Here are some tips for Creating Designer Looking Bedding:
1. USE COTTON SHEETS
In the long run, buying excellent quality bedding is also less expensive. Egyptian cotton sheets will wash and dry wonderfully and feel divine as they have a high thread count. Additionally, they will usually last for years.
It would be best if you are willing to spend more money the longer you want to use something. Don’t spend a lot if you only want to get a season or two out of bedding. However, a little investment is well worth, if you intend to use the bedding for several years.
2. USE A THIN SOLID COLOR QUILT AS A BEDSPREAD
Choosing a solid and neutral-colored quilt for your bed and using it as a bedspread is an efficient tip. Using thin white quilts on beds as a “base” is a pretty good idea. They are easy to wash and give the bed a designer look as they are crisp looking. When you bring new bedding to a room, you don’t have to change them out. They always look nice and go with everything you choose, and that is why they stay.
Choosing a white quilt for a bed is a real budget-friendly idea, and they go well with every color. Buy quilt covers online as they give you a variety to choose from and are usually very budget-friendly.
3. USE DUVET COVERS
A fluffy duvet is usually present at the bottom of a beautiful designer bed. Duvets are visually pleasing and practical as well as economical. A duvet insert will last for up to 10 years once an investment is made for it if adequately cared for.
4. USE SHAMS TO PULL BEDDING TOGETHER
Euro or standard shams that work with your bedding are a feather in the cap; make sure to purchase. Matching the duvet cover and the shams does the magic. Euros are preferred more and are usually better than standard shams, but they are not always available with every duvet.
Usually, when the shams are on sale, so are the duvet covers. Buy the duvet cover when you buy the shams together.
5. REMEMBER TO USE ACCENT PILLOWS
For your bed, the accent pillows are like jewelry. They add texture and color, and fluff. And they can be very inexpensive as well when bought from the right place. Choose style and color over quality in accent pillows, which would be a wise decision. The pillow doesn’t have to be extravagant; a nice pillow also works pretty well. To give your bedding an expensive designer look, the accent pillows go a long way.
To buy pillow forms and inserts is a great budget-friendly idea. Changing out the covers can help you use the inserts over and over again.
6. ADD A THROW
For very little money, a throw adds a layer of design and interest. Try to find one that complements the rest of your bedding with lots of texture in color.
All these tips will help your bedding look like a professionally designed bed. It will give you the much-needed luxurious feel when you enter the room and go to sleep.
