The bedroom is easily one of the most important rooms of any home, seeing that we spend a minimum of 8 hours sleeping and a few more hours during the day using the bedroom. For this reason, there are so many aspects that need to be taken care of while setting up the bedroom. We commonly begin by selecting a wardrobe for storage and choosing the perfect dressing table to set up your cosmetics and accessories and end by setting up the bed, which is the most important element of the bedroom. Setting up the bed is no easy task either, as a lot of factors need to be considered to ensure a comfortable sleep. Wakefit has a range of bedding furniture and accessories on its website, which can provide a good idea for your bedding shopping needs.
To enjoy a comfortable sleep, one must sleep in a calm and relaxing environment in the appropriate temperature and lighting conditions. Soft, dim lighting and a moderate to cool temperature of 25 degrees make up ambient sleeping conditions. In addition to these, the area should not be disturbed by any external and internal sound. The bedding should contain all the necessary bed accessories used during sleeping.
A bedding set does not merely consist of a bed and mattress. Among modern bedding ideas is a list of bedding accessories that guarantee a cosy and undisturbed sleep. Let us have a look at each of these below:
Bed: There are designs and sizes available for a bed. If you are a lone sleeper, you can opt for a single bed, whereas if you share your bed, you can choose a queen-size bed as well. For the ultimate freedom to sprawl and sleep in whatever position you like, go for a king-size bed that is the largest available. If space is not an issue, you can buy the classic four-poster bed design, consisting of a large rectangular board flanked by four columns at each corner. These columns can be draped with fancy fabrics and curtains to evoke a sense of privacy ad grandeur. If minimalism is your approach, you can opt for the box bed and upholstered bed designs. The upholstered bed designs come with a fabric headboard made of soft fabrics like velvet, cotton and wool. These headboards not only add colour and texture to the bed but are also comfortable as a back and headrest.
Flat bedsheets: Bedsheets are a good covering for your mattress, available in various sizes, colours and designs. The king size bamboo sheet sets are ideal for large-sized beds. Additionally, bamboo bed sheets are made of soft, breathable, eco-friendly bamboo fabrics that help you enjoy a cool sleep. If you are allergic to dust, you’ll be happy to know that bamboo also makes hypoallergenic bed sheets.
Comforter: Buy a cotton comforter online made of a soft fabric to enjoy a cuddly, cosy sleep under the comforter. Unlike blankets, comforters are softer and lighter quilts which are also used as a bedspread over the bedsheet. When you search online, you may also come across a bed sheet set with a comforter, with the same design and colours. Comforters are available in different thicknesses and sizes, so you can have a good look at the specifications before making a purchase. A variety of materials such as cotton, wool, linen and fleece are used to make comforters. Depending upon the weather, you can change your comforters to suit your needs.
Pillows: A good pillow selection is essential for a sound sleep as quite often, the wrong choice of pillows results in poor neck and spine alignment, causing neck pain. Too soft pillows can sink into your head, while too hard pillows can be uncomfortable and cause pressure points. A variety of ergonomic pillows are available in the market and can be chosen depending upon your sleeping position- whether you are a back sleeper, stomach sleeper, side sleeper or combo sleeper. The few types of ergonomic pillows which are available are contour pillows, slim pillows, wedged pillows and CPAP pillows. CPAP pillows are exclusively designed for those sleepers who use a CPAP machine throughout the night, such as sleep apnea patients. A CPAP pillow is designed to accommodate the mask and tubing of the CPAP machine.
On the other hand, contour pillows have a unique curve in the design with two raised ends and an illusion of a valley between the ends. The contour pillows are the best sleeping pillow for neck pain. Also, look out for hypoallergenic pillows made of fresh, breathable, allergen-free fabrics which do not accumulate dust particles.
Blankets: If you prefer blankets to comforters for that extra snug protection and warmth throughout the night, then go for a warm blanket, which is available in a variety of materials like wool, polyester, fleece, and nylon and microfiber.
