20 Ways To Make Your Bed The Most Comfortable Place On Earth

Body pillow > summer bae.

3. Compile the perfect amount of pillows so that you want to spontaneously leap back into bed the second you make it.

Check out Catherine Heraghty's pillows on Adore Magazine. She suggests choosing two European pillows, four standard pillows, and three cushions, but whatever makes you ~coziest~ will do the trick.


4. Add a body pillow to the mix to reach prime snuggliness.

It also works well as a barrier if bae is a kicker/if snuggling is a hard no.

The Aller-Ease body pillow ($16.55) is a best seller on Amazon. See the Little Green Notebook to see how they made the cover.


9. Throw down an extra fuzzy bedside rug to make things easier for your feet in the morning.

Having something cozy to step out of when you have to leave your cozy bed will make you so much cozier. Check this room and all its cozy fixings on Chris Loves Julia.


12. Hide your bed away with some curtains.

A suspension rod is a great move if your bed is tucked between two walls. Opt for blackout curtains to rest in complete darkness and seclusion. See more photos of this designer couple's home on Decor 8.

13. Skip the top sheet and just put a nice washable duvet cover on your comforter.

Instead of layering your bed with sheets and blankets, stick to a single duvet. That way, you have less to wash and way more warmth. Plus, you'll spend a whole lot less time making your bed. Learn how to "burrito roll" your duvet to easily put on the cover on Inhabitat.

14. And get bedding that is blue.

According to people with blue rooms actually sleep longer. The ganglion cells in your eye control your body's circadian rhythm. They respond to blue by telling your brain it's time for bed (as in your blood pressure and heart rate slow down).

15. If you prefer bed sheets, learn the hospital corner tuck to prevent waking up with them somehow tucked under your back and on top of your head.

Check out this quick tutorial video to learn the tidy tuck. While you're at it, try making your bed with sheets that are slightly damp right out of the dryer. They will be easier to stretch and maneuver.


16. And try linen sheets instead of cotton to let your legs ~breathe~.

That cat = Me, always.

Linen is weighty enough to be cozy in winter and wicks away moisture during the summer. The Sweet Home researched and tested an expansive list of linen sheets to determine that West Elm's linen set was the best. They are pretty expensive ($219 for a full-sized set), so you can check the list for cheaper options.

17. Use a tray if you can't resist eating in bed to keep the crumbs out of your sheets.

Drunk, hiding from roommates, or lazing in on a Sunday, we've all done it (though you totally shouldn't). Learn how to make this pretty breakfast tray from Brit+Co .

19. Make your bed every (!) day (!).

It doesn't have to be perfect, but there has been a weird amount of research that has showed that establishing this habit is really really good for you. It makes you more productive and might even help you sleep better. See more reasons why in Here's Why You Should Make Your Bed Every Single Day. Tour this couple's home on Homepolish.

20. When all else fails: Find someone furry to share your bed with.

Dogs are basically just everlasting hot water bottles.
