2. Your Bedding
While your mattress is the biggest investment in your bedroom, your bedding and pillows are just as important.
Again, the possibilities here are endless, from fillings to weight and size and materials.
I’d recommend considering the following 3 questions when choosing your bedding…..
Do you and your partner squabble over the duvet?
If so, get a bigger one! Or, another alternative (and often cheaper) it to buy two duvets instead! One each means you can also have a different weight if necessary.
Too hot or too cold?
If you wake up too hot or too cold your good nights sleep can be ruined. I personally think it’s better to be on the cool side of things, with an extra blanket at the foot of the bed for when necessary. Oh, and I must admit I love a hot water bottle in the winter!
Do you like it??
Finally, do you actually like your current duvet and pillow covers? Does your bed look like a relaxing place that you want to be in? My mum still has a duvet set from years ago that she hates (it was a gift I think) but she still uses it because it’s good quality and still has plenty of wear left in it.
But she hates it! It’s not going to help you enjoy going to bed and snuggling under a duvet if you can’t stand the sight of it!
You know when you stay in a hotel, and the pillow is lovely and soft, the sheets crisp and clean, and the duvet is light and you think you could stay in that comfy bed all day?
That’s what you need to strive for at home! Invest in high quality bedding - the best duvet and pillows you can afford, and bed linen that you LOVE - that’s makes you want to jump into bed!
We loved our HerdySleep mattress so much, we decided to try a wool filled duvet as well - checkout the range from Devon Duvets
