Something comforting, soft, supportive, firm enough to keep you up and cushy enough to lull you sleep. We’re willing to bet that you’re thinking about your bed…we are too! A bed comprises several different things that make it a whole, one stop, flop shop.
While some people use their beds for other things for example, a work station, dining table and even a clothes rest, ultimately the bed is where you lay your head and get the rest you need to live your life. One of the most important components of your bed is the bedding. Bedding isn’t just frills and pretty colors, bedding has a function.
It acts as a protective buffer between you and your mattress as well as it lends extra padding and support. It helps to keep things clean and contained while adding a stylistic and fashionable flare to your bedroom.
Even if you have no decoration in your room, with well designed bedding, you won’t even need it. Some people shy away from purchasing bedding because it can be pretty expensive, luckily with places like Bed bath store, you’ll be able to snag great deals on luxurious, functional bedding to make your bedroom even more delightful to slumber in. once you’ve got your bedding, you have to take care of it, however.
It can last a very long time once you use our tips to keep your bedding blissful:
Storing your bedding:
Even the most beautiful bedding has to be rotated and put away sometimes. Maybe you’re feeling for a change in color or want to throw on a lighter fabric, come Summer. Whatever the reason, storing your bedding is important to preserving the quality for years to come. Before you put it away, you must make sure it is clean. Whether you do it at home or send your bedding to be professionally laundered, packing away clean bedding can spare you the horror of meeting with mildew and dust. There are two schools of thought, both very valid when packing bedding – 1) pack in an airtight container or bag that allows no air in or out and 2) pack in a breathable bag that allows the fabric to benefit from circulated air. What you don’t want to do is pack it into a zippered bag full of air which may cause it to sweat or even house mites that you’re unaware of.
Put away the pillows:
Well not exactly…what we’re suggesting is that if you have decorative covers for your pillows, do not sleep with them. Some people leave everything on the bed when it is time to sleep and find that the intricate working on pillow cases gets destroyed. It isn’t the pillows fault…those covers are made to look pretty. Covers that have sequins or beads or ribbons need to be set aside before naptime. Additionally, sleeping on any of those decorative items is bad for your skin so, that’s a beauty tip as well!
