We believe that the perfect bed setup is not far from your reach. With our tips and tricks, you can make your bed feel like you are spending the night at a five-star hotel. Do not believe us? Check out our tips below to get inspired:

First Things First

To begin, you will want to gather all your linens. The quality and style of your bedding are all up to you, but we suggest selecting something of quality that matches your room’s interior while also being comfortable. The higher the thread count, the higher the luxury. If it is within your budget, opt for a thread count of at least 600. Otherwise, your bedding should include:

  • Plastic/Fabric Mattress Cover
  • Fitted Sheet
  • Flat Sheet
  • Pillows and Pillow Covers
  • Comforter

Crisp & Clean 

As much as you may hate ironing, there is nothing better than wrinkle-free, crisp sheets. Ironing large sheets on a standard small ironing board may be difficult; therefore, you should try covering a table and use the surface to iron out your bedding. You will find that you can effortlessly slide into bed with warmed, wrinkle-free sheets.

Smooth Criminal 

Sometimes, the corners of your mattress can cause the mattress pad to bunch up at the center which makes your sleep feel uncomfortable. To prevent this from happening, you can secure the elastic edges with a safety pin or corner fasteners. In doing so, you will guarantee a budge-free sleep.

The Perfect Fit

The fitted should fit tight. Pull it until it is taut and secure it by tucking the edges underneath the mattress. Remember that you never want your fitted sheet to be too tight or too lose. It may take some trial and error before finding the perfect set for your bed.

The Icing on The Cake

After properly making your bed, make sure you add a cozy comforter to spread over the center. The comforter adds an extra layer of comfort. Plus, your comforter is where you can get creative with different designs and styles. Whatever style you choose, be sure to base it off of your room’s design to create a consistent flow.
