New Year, New Bed!
New Year’s Eve is right around the corner! Which means it is the perfect time to start the year out fresh with a new bed. We spend a large majority of our life in bed, yet we often forget all about it and allow our mattresses and bedding to slowly age until they are no longer comfortable or supportive. It is time for all of that to change! Follow along as we share with you the best ways to upgrade your bed for the new year!
Best Ways To Upgrade Your Bed For 2023:
We can all say we want better sleep. However, sometimes you have to do something about it to make it true. Which is why we have several amazing suggestions on how to upgrade your sleep this year. Keep reading to see where you may need to invest in your bedroom to sleep sounder and better in 2023!
Invest in a New Mattress:
Mattresses are built to last a very long time. They are sturdy and made to provide a supportive and comfortable place for us to rest. However, after many years it can begin to breakdown and no longer provide the comfort and support that we need. Because mattresses take years and years to breakdown, we often don’t notice the change in comfort.
As you start the new year, it may be time to check in with your mattress comfort to see if it is no longer providing the support you need. The new year is all about starting fresh, which is the ideal time to start fresh with a new mattress. If you need help picking out a new mattress, this is what we do best.

Upgrade To A Bigger Bed:
As our life changes, our requirements from our bed often also changes. When we are young, we only really need enough space for ourselves. However, as pets, spouses, and children enter the picture… you need more space.
For the New Year, we suggest that you stop sleeping in a cramped bed and upgrade your mattress size. Fresh starts call for providing yourself with the tools for great success for the year to come. Part of that is getting truly great sleep. Getting a larger bed allows you and your loved ones to share a bed and have enough space for everyone.
Is it time for a bigger bed? Let us help you decide with our post: Upgrading to a Larger Bed Size
Get An Adjustable Base:
Adjustable bed frames have really gotten a face lift in the past few years. No longer are they for those with limited mobility. Instead, they are luxury items that can help you customize your sleep space. We spend so much time in our beds, and not always sleeping. Whether you love to read, watch tv, or simply lounge in bed then we highly recommend upgrading your bed with an adjustable base. You can create a seated position so you can lounge in comfort without having to stack up a bunch of pillows.
This is also a very handy addition for anyone who prefers to raise their legs when they sleep, or need to raise their head to avoid snoring. The ability to adjust the position of your bed to suite your needs is such a new and incredibly useful tool.

Invest In Comfortable Pillows:
Finding the right pillow can be quite the task. Which is why so many people are sleeping on pillows that leave them waking up with headaches and pain in the neck and shoulders. There is simply no need to be falling asleep in an uncomfortable position, and waking up in pain.
Which is why we recommend upgrading your pillow for the new year! By finding the right pillow for how you sleep, you will get better sleep and feel better when you wake up.

Believe us… Get A Weighted Blanket:
Okay, if you have not heard by now how incredible weighted blankets can be, then we want to know what rock you have been living under. Weighted blankets are such a simple yet effective way to lower stress and anxiety in order to help you relax and get great sleep. It has been studied and proven that weighted blankets help your brain release oxytocin. Which helps to make you feel relaxed and safe.
If you or someone you love has a hard time with anxiety, we cannot recommend a weighted blanket enough. Even if you have a hard time falling asleep after waking up in the middle of the night, it can help with that as well.

New Mattress Topper:
If your mattress is still supportive, but lacking in softening comfort layers. Then a mattress topper is a complete game changer! You don’t have to get an entirely new mattress in order to completely change how your mattress feels.
A New mattress topper for the new year is a great way to add extra soft comfort for allowing pressure relief while maintaining support from the mattress below. We love how much a mattress topper can transform your bed. Click the link below to check out the best mattress toppers we have reviewed!

Upgrade Your Bedroom Lighting:
Overhead lights are harsh and can even make it difficult to get in the mood for sleep. In our house we only use lamps and mood lighting in the evenings. This helps you to wind down and night and ease into your day in the mornings.
We suggest not only filling your bedroom with lamps and dimmable lights, but your whole house as well. Even better, get a smart alarm clock or a Philips Hue Go Light! This smart device can be scheduled to slowly turn on in the mornings. This mimics the sunrise, which triggers your body to wake up naturally. This is a total game changer, especially if you use blackout curtains. Click the link below to shop now!

Update Your Bedding:
Another way you can upgrade your bed for the new year is by updating your bedding. Sheets are constantly getting dirty and washed, which means they can wear out over time. Updating your sheets, quilt, duvet cover, pillow cases etc. can give your whole bed new life.
Your bedding is in direct contact with your skin making it one of the most important features for your comfort when you sleep. It also determines the appearance of your bed. Which all on its own can be a great reason for an upgrade.
New bedding gives your whole bedroom a new look for a very minimal investment. Also, it’s a great time to think of what works seasonally too and buy accordingly.
