There is no place which soothes a tired person like their own bedrooms and in the comfort of their beds. So why not make you room your heaven by making it look beautiful starting with your bed.
Many a time people find it easy to leave a bed a jumbled mess when they wake up. After all, you’re only going to mess it up again in a matter of hours.
Making a bed has become one of those chores that very few people bother with, but a made bed has a dramatic impact on the way a room looks and feels like.
Find out a few simple steps to make a bed, and make your room appear less cluttered and chaotic
Bed skirts are a great way to liven up a bed and to draw out the room colours. If you like the way a bed skirt makes your room look, then by all means grab your favourite colour and design one for yourself.
If you’re more minimalistic in your bed linen approach, that’s fine too.
Always make sure that your bed skirt is well fitting and the colours should match the colours of other linens too.
Bottom sheet and top sheet
Let nobody lie to you that a bed is the most important tool when it comes what to sleep on. Clean bed sheets or linens are what matter the most.
I have seen in the Asian countries where mattresses are well placed on a mat on the floor, but what is spread on makes one forget about a bed.
So whether you sleep on a bed or on a mattress on the floor, always remember to have clean linens, they should be changed thrice a week.
A fitted sheet should have elastic at the corners, along opposite sides, or all the way around the hem. The fitted sheet is designed to cling to the mattress.
Comforter, Duvet, Quilt, or Blanket
No bed should be without these very important tools in our beds. These make the bed look so inviting, that every time you see a well covered bed you feel like jumping in it for a good night sleep.
Smooth your choice of blanket, duvet or quilt evenly over the top of the bed, smoothing the edges as you go as you finish making your bed giving it an organized look.
Pillow Protector, Pillows and Pillowcases
What can we do without pillows on our beds? They make us sleep well with our heads and necks well balanced. When looking for a pillow always shop for orthopedic pillows which are recommended for good balance and without allergy pollens like the sponge pillows that are commonly used.
Pillows can be laid upright against the head of the bed. Do what makes the bed have that finished look that you love.
When tired, get home early take a cold bath or shower– have a glass of milk or hot chocolate, jump into your clean bed– grab an interesting book and read very slowly as you cover yourself in clean linens, duvet or a quilt, you will eventually fall into a very beautiful sleep, in the morning you will be a different person.
