Choosing Bed Accessories
We’ve been talking a lot about how important it is to love the look AND feel of your bed. Yes, the mattress is probably the most important component of your bed. But, the look, feel, and design of your bed may also play an important role in the quality of sleep you get. As crazy as it may sound, people tend to sleep a lot better on beds that they think are aesthetically pleasing.
Bedspreads, duvets, comforters, throws, pillows, and accent pillows can transform the look of you bed in a matter of minutes. When you were younger, you probably adorned your bed with teddy bears and other stuffed animals. Bed accessories are the grown up version of your childhood stuffed animals. It is important to choose these accessories carefully. Here are some things to keep in mind when sprucing up your bed with accessories.
1. Bedspreads and comforters are considered bed accessories. These are the most important bed accessory you can choose. These items set the tone for your entire bed and even your bedroom. Carefully choose your bedspread first before choosing any other accessory.
2. Size. You’ll want to keep the size of your bed in mind when choosing accessories. Obviously, you don’t want to have 15 accent pillows on a twin size bed. You’ll also need to know that size of your bed before buying your bedspread. Don’t get a twin size comforter for your king size bed.
3. Colors. Don’t choose clashing colors. Earth tones are an excellent choice for a bedroom. These colors help the mind and body relax, especially after a long, hard day. In order to choose the right bedspread, look at the color scheme of your room. Go with colors that will bring subtle life to the room.
4. Accent pillows. You can really have a lot of fun decorating with accent pillows. Accent pillows are the finishing touch that can make your bed warm, lush, elegant, exciting, and inviting. Choose pillows that add height and depth to the decor of the room, as well as the bed.
Your bedroom should be an oasis from everything else in your life. Carefully choose your bed accessories to begin creating the perfect retreat.
