Bedrooms are one of the most important spaces in our lives – they provide a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle from our day and they’re the place we spend the most time in, too.
They’re also an indicator of our personality and standards. Let’s face it, there’s no joy coming into a bedroom that’s cluttered with piles of clothes, a rickety bed frame and sheet sets from last decade!
For these reasons and more it’s important to have a bedroom that’s as comfortable and as visually pleasing as can be.
If you’re looking to upgrade your bedroom but you don’t want to embark on a complete makeover, then there’s one very easy way to do it.
Simply upgrading that tired old duvet and sheet set for a new one will liven up even the most tired looking room and give you 5-star hotel vibes every time you slide between the covers.
Let’s talk more about improving the aesthetics of your bedroom!
First up, doona or duvet? What is a duvet anyway?
Duvets are a type of bedding accessory that tend to be filled with down, feathers, wool, or synthetic fibres. Duvets originated in northern Europe and they’re perfect for those chilly winter nights.
Investing in luxury duvet sets will make your bed look more aesthetically pleasing as soon as you change the covers over. They also are more comfortable than ordinary sets and help protect a bed from dirt and stains.
These days, ‘luxe’ bedding has moved beyond the silky and satiny sheets of old, or just plain old white. In 2022 and beyond, look for the below colours when upgrading your bedding:
- Pastel colours (pink, blue, and green).
- Jewel tones (purple, red, and yellow).
- Earth tones (brown, tan, and beige).
- White (it’s a classic we can’t deny it)
Luxury bed linens also don’t need to mean plain. You can add some style and flair to your bedroom without looking cheap or downmarket. Some popular options include:
- Abstract patterns
Adding Comfort to Your Bedroom
In addition to making a bed look more aesthetically pleasing and inviting, quality bed linen will also help you get a better night’s sleep.
The materials that duvets are typically made from can help to regulate body temperature, keeping people at the right temperature whatever the weather. Quality bed linen will also feel nicer against the skin, making it easier to fall asleep, sleep more deeply and stay in bed longer.
Choosing Your Bed Linen Materials
When choosing bed linen, it is important to consider your climate. For example, in warm climates, bed linen made from natural fibres such as cotton or linen will be a better choice than anything made from synthetic fibres.
In cold climates, bed linen made from natural fibres such as wool or down might prove comfier than cotton or linen.
It is also important to consider the durability of bed linen. Natural fibres are typically more durable than their synthetic alternative, meaning you can splash out on a luxury set and not have to replace them anywhere near as frequently.
Some Other Things to Think About
If you’ve decided to upgrade your duvet, then you may also want to upgrade the other bedroom accessories. There are many different types of things you can improve, such as extra pillows and matching pillowcases, a second set of bed sheets, bed skirts, throw blankets to name just a few. For the uninitiated, bed skirts are used to cover the legs of the bed and hide any unsightly items underneath.
You also might want to consider the level of protection required. Bedding will help protect the mattress from sweat and dirt but you may want to invest in a mattress protector. In addition to keeping the mattress clean, they will make the bedding look better as well.
As you can see, bed linen plays an important role in both the aesthetics and level of appeal in your bedroom. By upgrading and choosing the right kind, you’ll transform your bed into a haven of luxury in no time – guaranteed.
