When it comes to getting a good nights sleep the bigger the bed the better. If I had my way I’d literally open my bedroom door and the entire room be filled with one huge wall to wall bed, stacks of pillows and the softest of fluffy cloud like bedding. Yes, big is best.
Over at Bed Guru they fully understand that no two people share the same sleeping requirements and they want everybody to get a great nights sleep. With the size of British new build homes shrinking it can often mean bed choices shrink too. STOP! Let’s just chat about why a big bed is a must!
So.. if I spend the night with my husband in a small standard double bed, I get no sleep…. I’m squashed, I have no space to sprawl out like a star fish, every time he turns over, he clatters into me, wakes me up, the covers swoosh off me and I’m left cold… essentially he’s way to close to me and not in a good way.
When I go to bed (to sleep…) I like space. I like loads of space, I like to sprawl, to star fish, to read a book without it being pressed right up against my husbands face and him keep nudging it… I want SPACE to sleep in total comfort.
I’d rather sacrifice floor space, reduce my clutter and belongings, design my room so that the bed is the main feature, after all a bedroom is all about the bed and I want that bed to be big, spacious and a total dream to sleep in.
Of course, I get it, in modern houses particularly space is at a premium but there’s ways you can switch around your bedroom to make space for a beautiful super king size bed.
- reduce clutter, therefore needing less storage and furniture, this makes life more simple and leaves more room for a big bed.
- choose a bed with under-bed storage, utilising every bit of space is key.
- go neat with your clothes – learn how to Kon Mari your clothes.
- use mirrors, lights and simple window dressings to create a more spacious airy feel.
