Ingredients For A Comfortable Bed

Although getting the recommended eight hours of sleep each night is sometimes a pipe dream, our sleep health is vitally important and we all need to prioritise good quality sleep.

Even if our bedroom isn’t the dreamiest of spaces yet (works in progress are okay) our beds should beckon us to escape, relax, reflect, and yes, sleep.

As well as investing in the best quality bed linen you can afford, knowing how to layer up a comfortable bed is a valuable skill and a gift that keeps giving.

A Mattress Topper |

A mattress topper made of memory foam, feathers, or egg crate foam can add both comfort and support to your bed. If you are purchasing a new mattress, a good mattress topper can help to protect your new sleep investment and significantly extend its life.

Protect Perfection |

Beds collect a lot of dust and other unwanted particles, by adding a mattress protector, which, unlike a mattress, can be thrown in the wash, this helps to keep your bed as clean as possible.

Protectors also add another layer between you and the mattress, so you’re less likely to feel the quilting and tufts through your sheets.

Know Your Sheets |

For ultimate luxury, invest in good sheets, a crisp cotton for winter and cool, smooth sateen for summer. Investment sheets will feel soft against your skin and will withstand weekly laundering. Ditch the idea of choosing sheets based solely on their thread count. You’re better off making your decision based on a touch-test, and your personal preferences.

As well as investing in the best quality bed linen you can afford, knowing how to layer up a comfortable bed is a valuable skill and a gift that keeps giving.

Plush Pillows |

You’ve probably noticed pillows come in many variations of fluffiness and firmness. Here’s your cheat sheet, if you sleep on your side, choose a firm pillow; if you sleep on your back, choose a medium pillow; if you sleep on your stomach, choose a soft pillow. Invest in Reed pillow protectors to extend the life of your pillows and improve your sleep hygiene as the covers are easy to wash monthly.

A Valance Please |

If your bed has an unattractive frame or a standard base, use a beautiful Reed bed skirt to cover it up. Known as a valance in Britain, this bed accessory always makes your room look more pulled together.

Quality Comfort |

A down comforter will feel both weightless and breathable, yet warm and cocoon like, perfect for cool fall mornings. You can neatly fold it at the bottom of your bed once you’re up, this way, the comforter will add a pop of colour to your room, while also staying conveniently placed for night-time.

Decorative Pillows |

Add a few extra decorative pillows for additional opportunity to play with colour and texture. They’ll make your bed appear more inviting and give you something plush to snuggle up to. Our range of boudoir cushions are the perfect final addition to your dreamy pillow arrangement.

Consider A Headboard |

A padded or tufted headboard is an easy way to make sitting up in bed more comfortable. Have fun with your headboard, it’s an investment piece that will help show off your beautiful bed, natural linens, plush velvets, rich jewel tones and studded details, the options are endless.

Even if our bedroom isn’t the dreamiest of spaces yet (works in progress are okay) our beds should beckon us to escape, relax, reflect, and yes, sleep.

Add Blankets And Throws |

Introduce texture and warmth to your space with a luxurious Reed Grandeur blanket. Choose one of our exquisite soft tones and add a final flourish with extra monogrammed detailing for the ultimate Egyptian cotton accessory.

Quilted Quiet |

Create a sense of getting away from it all, in your own bedroom. A classic Reed quilt at the end of the bed and a sumptuous Reed gown strewn on an occasional chair, are a clear invitation to relax and nestle in, whether you’re a guest or the nightly resident.

Underfoot |

Nothing’s worse than waking up from a cosy bed only to find yourself with (literally) cold feet. Consider adding a textured rug on the side of your bed to complete the sensory experience.

Wishing you many comfy hours of restoration in bed with Reed luxury.
