Ahh, do you smell that? It’s the scent of crisp falling leaves, pumpkin spice lattes, and adorable seasonal decor. As you switch out your flip flops and cut-offs for chunky knits and fuzzy boots, maybe it’s time to switch up your sleeping routine too. Here are 3 great tips for transforming your bedroom and bed into a cozy corner as the nights get longer and the temperatures drop.
Tip #1: Choose versatile bedding
Sure, flannel sheets and heavy down comforters are cozy during the winter, but during the still-warm evenings of autumn, they’re not quite right. Invest in easy-care fabrics like microfiber or bamboo that still allow for breathability as the nights slowly become colder. You can also use sheets in these fabrics as a base layer as the months go on, piling on down or down alternative blankets depending on which direction the weather decides to take. Better yet: Splurge on luxury sheets to create a spa-like retreat as you lounge about in chunky knits and fuzzy boots.
Tip #2: Buy a new mattress
When was the last time you bought a new mattress? Sure, we sell mattresses so we’re obligated to ask — but we’re all friends here, right? If you’d be embarrassed to say the answer out loud, perhaps you should really think about taking the plunge. Sure it’s an investment, but there are options for every budget and sleeping style. If you’re really not ready or you just need some tweaking for your newer mattress, consider a mattress topper to create a cozy foundation.
Tip #3: Get Accessories to Help You Sleep Better
If you’re not getting enough sleep, welcome to the ever-growing club. (And if you are getting enough, we’d love to know your secrets). Everyone has their little trick or tip to help them doze off, but we could all use a little help from time to time. Consider trying a white noise machine to drown out sounds which might prevent you from falling asleep. If you suffer from acid reflux at night, look into getting a bed wedge to help with that. Both of these items can help you sleep more soundly. Make these tools a part of your regular bedtime routine and consistent schedule to help better quality sleep.
To get you started, we’ve put together a great buyer’s guide to help you choose the right bedding, mattress, and accessories for your lifestyle. Still have questions?
