How to Make Your Bed Cozier
There are few pleasures in life that top hanging out in bed on a rainy weekend, wiling away the day by reading magazines and watching TV. Sound nice? Below is a quick anatomy to help achieve the ultimate cozy bed.
1 - Mattress
Latex mattresses are a good place to start. It feels soft with a lot of give, but still manages to provide support. Even if it gets kind of crowded and you’re pushed to the edge you’ll find that the edge on a latex bed is just as supported as anywhere else.
2 - Feather Bed
If you have never used a feather bed, be prepared for it to change your life. This little addition will make you feel like you’re floating on a cloud. Be sure to air it out every few weeks to keep its loft, but the extra work is worth it.
3 - Hot Water Bottle
If you keep your room cold a hot water bottle provides just enough warmth to avoid that initial chill of a fresh bed but not enough to give you night sweats.
4 - Flannel Sheets
Feel like a child again and swap out your light cotton sheets with soft flannel ones.
5 - Goose Down
The finishing touch is the comforter. Goose down is a nice way to go. To some it feels like it has better loft. Big, light and fluffy = cozy!
6 - Blankets
Now some will disagree on the comforter and instead look for the weight and substance of blankets – it’s all personal. If you do, try using another top sheet on top of the blankets to avoid pilling and dust.
