Are you sure you know how to make your bed? With these tips, you'll have the best rest you've ever imagined.
Have you ever stopped to think that you spend an average of eight hours a day sleeping? It may seem obvious, but now is the time to make your bed like an expert and enjoy a restful sleep.
To do this, you have to choose high-quality sheets and make your bedroom feel luxurious. Next, discover some tips for feeling like you’re sleeping on clouds every time you get into bed.
How good does it feel to get into a freshly made, clean bed with sheets that seem to hug you?
A well-made bed can lull you off to sleep in no time at all. Its appearance invites you to have a restful sleep full of pleasant dreams.
The truth is that the importance of knowing how to choose bedding goes beyond whether it’s beautiful. In fact, you have to consider breathability, absorption, moisture evaporation, and materials because these all affect the quality. However, there are many other things to consider as well.
Don’t miss all the nuances that you need to take into account to make your bed look like it’s from a magazine. Are you ready?
The best materials
It’s essential to pay close attention to this. Ideally, your bedding should be of the best quality cotton. For example, a great choice is 100% Egyptian cotton. Forget synthetic materials since, although they are cheaper and resistant to wrinkles, they are not breathable and you’ll be less comfortable.
Linen is an ideal material if you live in a hot climate, but it’s considerably more expensive. Of course, it’s also very durable so you have to decide if it’s worth it for you.
Also, it’s worth mentioning calico, which is a light, tight fabric. It’s another great option, depending on what climate you live in.
Make your bed – the thread count
You might have noticed that when you buy sheets for your bed, you can see the thread count on the package. This refers to the number of threads per square inch of the fabric.
For example, sheets between 200 to 400 threads per inch are the softest and most durable. Below 200 threads is usually cheaper, but they are lower quality. Cotton is a great bet and you can find options mixed with polyester so it doesn’t wrinkle. However, make sure that the amount of polyester doesn’t exceed 50% of the fabric so the sheets aren’t too rigid.
On the other hand, not all quality depends on the thread count of sheets. Also, it’s important to check the fiber composition, such as carded or combed cotton.
In combed cotton, the fibers that result from the carding process go through a comber that removes impurities. This makes them softer, shinier, and more durable.
Also, you should look for longer fiber because spinning gives them strength, which means less carding. Other highly recommended alternatives for good quality fiber are pima and supima cotton, organic, cotton-polyester, and even bamboo.
The importance of making your bed every day is clear, but how often do you have to change your sheets? It’s ideal to do this once a week. Therefore, you’ll need a couple of sets of sheets for different seasons.
If you want to extend the life of your bedding, have at least three sets of sheets you can rotate. And remember, materials and designs change between winter and summer.
Now that you have the basics of how to make your bed like an expert, you can rest like royalty. There’s nothing more relaxing than creating a neat, orderly environment in your bedroom.
Sweet dreams! And remember, you just need to add a personal touch with the design that best suits the decorative style of your bedroom.
