Ways to Make Your Bed More Comfortable

Someone once said your bed should be what you look forward to after a long, hard day and what you dread leaving each morning. Well, it is true that we strive to make our beds the most comfortable item in our homes. But is your bed as comfortable as it can be? Is it so comfortable that you do not wish to leave it every morning? Is it so comfortable that you long to return to it at night? Here are several ways to make your time in the land of nod as relaxing as it should be.

  • Make your bed daily: A bed that is properly made up looks much more inviting than one that has not been. It is ready to crawl into instantly when you are ready to go to sleep. Additionally, making up your bed each day means that you will not have to struggle to put everything in its place thereby wasting time and losing sleep.
  • Use heated blankets: Your body needs to be at an optimal temperature in order to facilitate sleep. Too cold and you will shiver all night trying to sleep. Too hot and you will sweat, toss and turn uncomfortably all night. Try using a heated blanket and experiment with its settings. Also, turn it on 15 minutes prior to going to sleep so that it is ready when you are.
  • Use a pillow that specifically suits you: Be as selective in your choice of pillows as you are in your choice of a mattress. Studies show that just as people have different sleep needs when it comes to mattresses, they also have those needs when it comes to selecting a pillow or pillows.
  • Use essential oils: Studies show that certain scents can set off a chain reaction that helps activate our immune system, alter blood pressure and release endorphins. This is one of the reasons the aromatherapy market is so popular. Lavender, peppermint and rosemary are three scents that are known to have a relaxing effect.
  • Find a quality comforter: Comforters are excellent for putting one in a weightless, relaxed state. They are almost like being in a cocoon and are especially comfortable on cold, fall/winter nights.comfortable bed

Benefits to Owing a Bunk Bed

Like a lot of great innovations, bunk beds are thought to have first been used by the Ancient Egyptians. Back then, people are believed to have slept, quite uncomfortably, on animal skins, feathers or whatever else was around. Thus, the introduction of bunk beds must have been quite a change in sleep technology for the Ancient Egyptians. Today, modern bunk beds are light years ahead of the ones used by Ancient Egyptian and are just as comfortable as traditional beds. This is due to advances in sleep and design technology. In fact, our high end bunk beds have many advantages over traditional beds.

    • They are space savers: Bunk beds are perfect for use in small spaces such as a dorm or a child’s bedroom. They make excellent use of vertical space that might otherwise go unused. This means that more horizontal space can be used for furniture and other items.
    • Lofting offers more versatility than traditional beds: Owning a bunk bed opens up many different design and even storage possibilities. For example, some of our solid wood bunk beds have drawers built right into them. This makes them convenient and practical as one does not have to get out of bed at night to retrieve items they might need from their drawer or dresser.
    • They are economically sound: It is usually cheaper to purchase a bunk bed than it is to purchase two traditional beds. The money you save on purchasing one of our bunk beds can be used for other furnishings.
    • Kids love them: Bunk beds open up a whole world of imagination as children love climbing up and down on them and converting them into clubhouses.
