The weather is starting to change. Chilly nights followed by crisp mornings. Only a few months from now the snow will be flying, and bitter winds will be whipping. Now is the time to start preparing your bed for fall and winter, and long, dark nights. Hibernation.
First, start with a great mattress. How old is the one you are sleeping now? Do you wake up feeling tired, and achy? If so, it's probably time to invest in a new mattress. You should shop around, and don't be scared to try them out. Make yourself at home and actually lay on the mattress as you would at home. Spend some time on each one. Sitting on a mattress is not the way to judge comfort, unless you sleep sitting up!?
Next, invest in a good quality mattress pad. This will protect your mattress, and adds an extra layer of cozy comfort. Make sure you find one that will fit your mattress correctly, and is machine washable and dry able. If you would like to notch up the cozy factor, add a feather bed over the mattress pad, and under your fitted sheet!
duvet. Find a duvet cover that compliments your sheeting, and adds a bit of color and pattern. Duvet inserts generally have to be professionally cleaned.
