How To Make Your Bed More Comfortable Without Buying A Mattress

If you’re like me you savor every last second of sleep you can get at night. I LOVE getting a good nights rest and I am a sleeping expert (and somewhat of an obsessor as I’m told) when it comes to getting every last ounce of comfort out of my bed. Today I am going to give you three easy steps to transform you bed from that crappy average mattress to a throne of comfort made for the king or queen who has the privilege to sleep in it (that’s you!).

Step 1: Purchase A Fresh New Set of Sheets

Nothing screams comfort like a fresh clean soft set of sheets. You can have the best mattress in the world, but you won’t sleep right unless you have a proper set of sheets. Sheets come in a variety of materials and prices, but luckily you can get a good set of sheets for less than $75 dollars.

We’ve written an entire article on the best sheets for different budgets, which will give you all the information you need to choose the right set of sheets. However, I will briefly summarize it for you below.

The best sheets for the money we’ve found this year consist of the following arranged from cheapest to most expensive

Pinzon Hemstitch 400-Thread-Count 100 Percent Egyptian Cotton sheets

Malouf Fine Linens 600 Count Genuine Egyptian Cotton

Amazon’s 1200 thread count 100% Egyptian cotton sheets

These are three solid choices for bed sheets that you will be more than pleased with for the price.


Step 2: Invest In A Memory Foam Mattress Topper

The idea of transforming you mattress from average to cloud like stems from the actual cushion underneath you while sleeping. What’s great about a memory foam mattress topper is it can make any mattress feel comfortable. As long as you place a minimum of 3 inches of memory foam on top of your mattress you will receive a whole new sleeping experience. Add this comfort with your new sheets and you’re in business baby. And by business I mean a ridiculously comfortable deep sleep.

We’ve published an entire guide on our top picks for the best mattress toppers of this year which will help you find the perfect topper. Our two top picks from the guide can be found below from least expensive to most expensive.

 3″ Lucid Memory Foam Mattress Topper from LinenSpa

Four Pound Density Visco Elastic Memory Foam Mattress Topper

Both feel fantastic and are the best you’ll find in their price range.


Step 3: Get Some Nice Pillows That Fit Your Profile

Pillows are one part of your bed that gets compressed over time and we don’t notice them being a lack of comfort until we buy new ones. Now, pillows are something that are very personalized for each person. Some people like stiff pillows, some like low pillows, some like fluffy pillows, some like memory foam pillows and others like ten pillows all at once! I can’t tell you what pillow you will like specifically, however I can tell you which pillows are the most comfortable for each profile type.

If you follow these three steps I can promise you that you will look forward to jumping in your bed every night. Having a comfortable mattress that allows you to fall into a deep sleep can change your life. Literally, it will change the way you feel the very next day. I encourage you to invest in your bed as it is where you spend 1/3 of your life sleeping!

Happy Sleeping Everyone!
