If there's ever a month to stay in bed and cozy up, it's January. The nights are long, the days are cold ... need we say more? So, below, nine ways to make your bed even more comfortable.
1. Place an area rug underneath your bed so you never have to step down onto a cold floor.
If you ever choose to get out of bed to begin with, that is.
2. Add a soft, upholstered headboard.
Sure, there are pillows in between, but it's never nice to accidentally hit a cold, hard, metal headboard.
3. Add fairy lights for a warm ambiance.
Harsh lighting is the definition of not cozy.
4. If your mattress is less than great, invest in a mattress pad.
If you're renting a furnished place, this is the easiest way to make your mattress more comfortable. Or, if you don't feel like dropping major cash to replace the mattress you currently own, this is an easy fix.
5. Use only soft throw pillows with pleasing textures.
For obvious reasons.
6. In the winter, opt for flannel sheets — or better yet, cashmere.
Yep, they exist. Head over to Brooklinen to check out their selection of heathered cashmere sheet sets.
7. Grab a hot water bottle.
It's an old school method, but it works so well!
8. Or cover up the foot of your bed in a fluffy blanket, so no feet will peek out.
If you're tall, you know the struggle: the minute your comforter covers your shoulders, your feet fall victim to the cold, harsh elements of your bedroom. Allow a fluffy blanket to fix that.
9. Try out a promising new duvet cover insert.
If you can't figure out why your bed just isn't that comfy, maybe it's because you're still using the discount duvet cover insert you picked up in college. Buffy's upgraded option is made of eucalyptus fabric (we're intrigued) and is hypoallergenic.
