17 Ways To Make Your Bed The Coziest Place On Earth

You can make your bed rock, girl.

1. Hang string lights above your bed to add a little magic.

2. Dress your bed in a giant sweater with a cable-knit blanket.

3. Get a real down comforter.

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

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

6. A plushy faux-fur throw on top of the covers will add Hollywood glam to your all-day Netflix sessions.

7. Learn how to tuck in your covers neatly.

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

9. When in doubt, add pillows.

10. If you have basic sewing skills, it's easy to turn cheap bath mats or accent rugs into cuddly throw pillow covers.

Just make sure they're unused rugs, please. Get more info here.

11. Invest in a nice bedside lamp so you never again have to get up to turn off the overhead light.

12. You can save money on a fancy tufted headboard by making your own.

You'll need a board, padding, fabric, and buttons. Get the full tutorial here.

13. If you're ready to upgrade your sheets, try linen instead of cotton.

14. DIY a cozy canopy by hanging fabric from the ceiling.

Option 1: Buy wooden dowels for just a few cents at a craft store and attach them to the ceilings with hooks or thumbtacks. Option 2: Rig up two short curtain rods on either side of the bed.

15. Add a foam or feather pillow-top pad to your mattress to make it softer.

16. If your bed is in a nook or very small room, you can turn it into a ship-shape hideaway with some curtains.

Adding a wall mirror and light will keep it extra cozy and make sure it's not too dark. Get more info on this cool small-space DIY at Apartment Therapy.

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