It’s inarguable – selecting your bed is the most important furniture choice you will make when decorating your bedroom. It serves as the focal point, and sets the tone for the rest of the room. Finding the right bed and bedding to accompany it will encourage a restful night’s sleep and peaceful greeting in the morning. Here are some items to consider when picking an ideal bed setup:

Bed height and type: For a modern look, choose a low bed like the Secret Bed or the Catalina Bedroom Collection.

A classic bed height is approximately 23 inches from the floor to the top of the mattress. To create a modern, airy and elegant look, ditch the bed skirt and pick a bed that sits up on legs.

For an ultra romantic look, choose a canopy bed. If you like the architectural intrigue a canopy bed offers but don’t want loads of fabric enclosing all four posts, opt for one or two pieces of fabric the run from the front of the bed to the back.

Bed linens: Keep in mind you can never go wrong with crisp, white sheets.

When choosing sheets take a look at the thread count. This represents how many threads horizontally and vertically make up one square inch of fabric. The higher the thread count, the more durable and softer the sheet. For a standard quality sheets choose a thread count of 250. For something extra luxurious and soft, opt for a thread count of 600.

To ensure proper neck support, let the way you sleep dictate the firmness of the pillow you choose. If you sleep on your stomach you should choose a soft pillow, if you sleep on your back choose a pillow with medium softness and if you sleep on your side, opt for a firm pillow.

For those who prefer a more paired-down bed, a simple duvet and cover are your best bet. If you like a more artful, layered look a comforter and its matching linens are a great option. For cooler evenings, have a quilt or blanket on hand to add an extra layer of warmth and coziness.
