A guys guide to Beds & Bedding!
OK so maybe I tricked you a little with that headline but seriously! Us girls care about what kind of bedding you have! You are not in college anymore and it's time to upgrade! No more hand me down sheets and mattress ick! Let me help you get all the essentials to a cozy bed that doesn't give you pillow cancer!
A bed frame! Yes you cannot just leave your mattress on the floor! You may have seen those hip trendy posts about bohemian floor beds and tried to justify your lack of a bed! There are a ton of simple inexpensive options out there. I personally like a platform style bed so you don;t have to spend the extra dough on a boxspring. Here are three options that would be perfect!
You need a good mattress! Not something you got from your parents when they upgraded but a real mattress that is comfortable and not from Craiglist! Got it! No one likes shopping for mattresses it's weird and the sales people are always super pushy. Who can really lay there and feel comfortable! Plus those weird plastic covers and fluorescent lights AKWARD! So I present to you Leesa! https://www.leesa.com/ This mattress will ship straight to your door and you can try it out for 100 nights! You heard me right you can sleep on this mattress for 100 nights! If on day 99 you decide it's just not the right one no harm done they donate the mattress to a worthy local organization! That's a hell of a lot better than 5 mins in a weird mattress store right!
Bedsheets! There is so much to learn when it come to sheets so let's keep it simple! Get Colorful! All white sheets are BORING! No one wants to be boring in bed. Parachute Home has amazing classic bedding that is great quality! You can easily mix and match the below sets to make a interesting manly bed.
Pillows! Not too many pillows I know how much you hate decorative pillows. You just want to be cozy! I recommend two Euro sized pillows, two standard sized pillows, and one yes one accent pillow! If you aren't allergic to down they are my recommendation but if you are they are some great down alternative options out there nowadays! Below are a few accent pillow ideas!
Throw blanket. An extra blanket is always a great idea! You want to be warm and cozy in bed. You could so as simple as a wool army blanket or if you want to be a little more luxe a faux fur throw is a great option for winter.
Wasn't that easy! Now that you have your bed in order the rest of the place may still be pretty shabby! Sign up for my newsletter to get more tips and tricks to get your home in order!
