Pay close attention to the style of mattress you pick for your bedroom and purchase a protective cover for it to keep it from getting dirty, stained and worn out too soon. Buying classic prints or plain materials with organic weaves mixed with synthetic fibers will ensure your mattress covers need washing only once in 2 months. Moreover, if you team these with fine quality bed sheets in natural fabrics for duvets, it will ensure more zzz's with soft and easy to maintain linen. However, remember to pick a duvet size that is just right for your mattress, not too loose around or too low on the bed skirting for then it'll only look slapdash.
To make a crisp bed, pull duvets and sheets tight around the mattress and turn in covers since loose sheets look 'too lived in' and while you're out buying mattress covers, pick up one for your costly duvets too - it increases the duvet's durability and makes the bed more comfy too. The best fabric blends for bed linen that is cool, stylish and classic is Egyptian cotton, which is breathable being a natural fiber and also does not attract lint. For a romantic, fresh and stylish bedroom, pick light, neutral colours in cotton blends, which will also make the bedroom look bigger.
One quick way of styling the space around your bed is to purchase natural area rugs that are easily available at local home furnishing stores as well as online from importers and specialist manufacturers. Make sure you pick up area rugs made of pure and organic materials such as bamboo, rattan, jute or cotton, which will never go out of style! A wheat colored shag under a bed-side table, or a brightly colored, tufted area rug near the foot-side of the bed makes for a fantastic floor-seating arrangement that adds beauty, coziness and enhances the welcoming aspect of a very private space!
