The following tips will help you create the most comfortable sleeping environment:

The mattress is the first place where sleep begins. If you’re waking up with aches and pains in your body, your mattress is likely to blame. Choosing a comfortable mattress depends on personal experiences. When shopping for a mattress, test it thoroughly. Lay on it as you would at home. If possible, try the entire range of firmness from soft to very hard. The budget will also determine how much you can spend, but keep in mind how important sleep is for your well-being. You are going to be spending six to eight hours every day on your bed for at least ten years. Do you really want to cut corners?
After selecting your bedroom mattress, you can consider add-ons such as adjustable bases, frames, and mattress pads.
Hard or Soft? How do you like your Pillows?
Selecting the right firmness for your pillow is also a matter of personal preference. You want to select a pillow that supports your head and neck muscles. It should provide support to the curvature of your neck. Generally, if you sleep on your tummy, a soft pillow is ideal for you. For a back sleeper, a contoured pillow is best. For side sleepers, a firm pillow is ideal.
Layer your Bed:
Apart from decorating your bed, bed sheets add additional softness. Most beds require a fitted sheet, flat and a set of pillow covers. The type of bedding you choose will depend on the climate, but if you prefer something natural, cotton sheets with a high thread count always work best. You can also place a throw blanket on top of the nights get a bit chilly. Avoid placing sheets or bedding made from synthetic materials. Always opt for breathable materials.
Add Finishing Touches:
The top layer of the bed is your chance to make a style statement. If you want to create a homey feeling, add a quilt. If you want to add something that is both practical (easy to tidy) and elegant, consider duvets or duvet covers. In the cooler months, comforters are also an excellent way to cover the bed.
For additional pizzazz, add throw pillows in coordinating designs, colors, and patterns. They will add a hotel feel to your bed.
Some Final Touches:
An inviting modern beds doesn’t end on the bed, don’t forget its surroundings. Finish off your cozy bed look with a soft area rug placed at the foot or side of the bed. Select a contemporary furniture night table to go with your bed and place a tasteful night lamp on it. This creates the perfect atmosphere for reading before falling asleep. Lastly, you can adorn your main wall with a painting of a serene landscape or an impressionist painting. Just be sure the colors are in soft hues and not bold or vibrant.
