bedtime

Get your bed just right and it will reward you with rejuvenating sleep night after night.  Here’s how + favorite bed linens:

  1. Upgrade your mattress. No need to buy a new one if your mattress is under 8 years old; try adding a pillowtop with memory foam for extra comfort.
  2. Use a mattress cover.
  3. Rotate your mattress every three months. Even pillowtop mattresses should be rotated (though not flipped). Try this tip.
  4. Ditch down. While it can feel luxurious, down pillows and blankets are a haven for dust mites, mold infestation, leaking feathers and other nasty problems. Plus, eek.
  5. Use a machine washable duvet cover rather than a big comforter. It can be washed each time you wash the sheets (also, wash bedding at least once a week).
  6. Don’t over-pillow. More than six will overwhelm the bed (and you). All pillows on the bed should be useable — no “for decoration only.”
  7. Keep it neutral. Take a cue from some of California’s best hotels: all-white or neutral-colored bedding will look luxurious and inviting whatever your room decor.
