5. Fake a DIY canopy by hanging fabric from the ceiling.

 

Wooden dowels and cheap curtain rods will make you look like you have extensive DIY skills even if you don’t.

6. Keep your electronics out of bed range so you’re less likely to hit snooze or stay up all night scrolling.

It’ll make you feel much more well rested.

7. Mattress toppers are an easy way to instantly up your cozy factor.

They come in foam and down-filled versions.

8. String lights don’t have to look dorm-y or Christmas-y.

Hang them behind a curtain to diffuse the glow, and even if you don’t have a nearby outlet, you can always buy lights that are battery-operated.

9. Make your bed every day.

It’ll make you feel productive and accomplished before you’ve even left the house, it’ll help you sleep better, and it’s like giving Future You a little treat.

10. These handy straps will keep your sheets from sliding around.

11. And try not to cheat by throwing your covers around haphazardly.

12. Invest in a comforter or quilt that you absolutely love.

Chances are it’s the first thing you notice when you walk in your bedroom door. And if you choose one like this that’s already textured, it won’t show wrinkles or last-minute bed-making lumps as easily.

13. Do as the Europeans do and skip the top-sheet.

Just slip a washable duvet cover over your comforter. Bed-making has never been so easy.

14. If you don’t have a headboard, something as simple as a sheet of metal or wood can have the same visual effect.
