Heavenly Soft: Increase the Comfort of Your Luxury Apartment Bed

by
Jul 17th, 2013

Do you lie awake at night, tossing ant turning and unable to get comfortable?  Even if you live in an upscale apartment home that is equipped with a nice bed and high-quality mattress, there may be a few simple changes you can make to improve your chances of getting a good night’s rest every night.  Browse through the following advice, and you should be able to discern what  changes can make your luxury apartment bedroom more conducive to restful sleep.

Mattress Check

If your AMLI apartment home came furnished, the bedroom surely has a high-quality mattress in it.  Just because a mattress is well-made and well-received by the consumerist public, however, does not mean it is right for you.  If your bed makes you feel as if you are sleeping directly on the hard earth or as if your body were melting into a marshmallow and you do not like it, then you need a new mattress.  Visit a mattress store, test out several mattresses, and do not make your purchasing decision until you have lain on a bed that made you feel as if you could fall asleep instantly.

Sheets like Pharaoh’s

Bedsheets, like tablecloths and towels, are one of those household necessities that thrift-minded apartment dwellers tend to skimp on.  Unfortunately, this often leads to post-transaction regret, as economically driven apartment renters discover that the sheets they purchase are scratchy and that they only get worse with each wash.  To keep your bed from making your skin feel as if it has spent the night rolling in nearly dead late summer grass each morning, purchase sheets that are 100% cotton.  Egyptian cotton is best, but any all-cotton sheets with a thread count higher than 200 should work.

Comfy Comforter

As far as your bed is concerned, comfort should be your top priority.  This line of thought extends beyond the mattress and sheets to the comforter or other covers you use.  For ultimate comfort, use a light, pleasing-to-the-touch comforter during the summer and a heavy down comforter during winter.  If you happen to be allergic to down, try stacking one or two thick wool blankets over your year-round comforter in the wintertime.

Blackout Curtains

Curtains are rarely considered part of one’s bedroom collection, but there are two important reasons to consider upgrading your curtains when you are giving your bed a makeover.  The first is that sunlight or other light streaming in through your windows may be causing sleep problems, especially when you try to sleep in a little on the weekend.  When all bedroom lights are switched off, blackout curtains can make a room appear totally dark.  This darkness will cause your boy to produce more melatonin, which will make it easier to fall and stay asleep both for an afternoon nap and during the night.  The second reason to take curtains into account when selecting new bedding is so that you are sure to choose curtains that match your sheets, pillow cases, and comforter.

Color-Coordinated Bedding

As we mentioned a couple of times in this article, color coordination is a key element in creating a bedroom that is conducive to sleeping and ideal for showing off.  Choose a color scheme you like, and make sure that your bedding looks good when viewed as one part of an entire whole: your bedroom.  Believe it or not, uncoordinated bedding or bedding that does not mesh  well with the decor of a luxury apartment bedroom can cause some of the more design conscious among us to lose sleep.  Or at least fret enough about the gawkiness of the way the bedding matches the room’s decor to get stressed out and lose sleep on that account.

If you aren’t sleeping in a comfortable bed and are losing sleep or putting up with unnecessary aches and sores because of it, then you are not living life to the fullest.  Make a visit to your favorite domestic merchandise supplier or online retailer, and pick up the trimmings that will make your AMLI luxury apartment bed the pinnacle of both comfort and design.
