Moving is an exciting experience – living in a new apartment, meeting new people, and having a fresh outlook on life. However, it comes with many responsibilities – so much to consider, so much to get done. That too, in such a short period.
You may have to redo your previous setup as it could look totally out of place in your new apartment. The first room that you should arrange to make your apartment feel homier is your bedroom. Bedsheets, pillows, and duvet covers are an integral part of your bedroom, so you have to be careful when buying bedding.
Here’s how to choose the right bedding for your new apartment.
The Pillows and Duvet
The primary purpose that your bedding serves is to enhance your resting experience when you are in bed. Thus, comfort takes precedence over style. The pillows and duvet you pick have a massive impact on your room’s coziness and overall ambiance.
Remember that the right type of duvet will be fluffy and fit the climate. It is a good idea to use a tog rating to measure how warm a duvet is. Lower tog ratings are suitable for summers, medium ones for fall or spring, and higher ones for winters.
A comfortable pillow should be soft while still maintaining enough firmness to support your head and neck. Most people prefer pillows with down fillings, but you could opt for another option such as memory foam or cotton.
Bedding comes in different types and qualities of materials. Cotton, linen, and silk are the most common materials used to manufacture bedding, but there is a large variety to choose from within each category. For example, Egyptian cotton is not the same as US cotton, and stonewashed linen bedding looks and feels different from regular linen.
A significant indicator of a fabric quality is its thread count. A high thread count such as that in ‘percale’ fabrics is what you should look for in bedding. However, a cloth’s quality is also dependent on the yarn’s fineness and the weaving process.
Colors are, by far, the most crucial aspect of your bedding’s aesthetics. You can pick the colors of your choice to express yourself and set the mood for your bedroom. Complete bedding sets are generally perfectly matched, but you could customize your own if they seem too dull. You could go for a muted scheme or bright and vivid options, solid colors or patterns, and so much more.
It’s important to note that each bedroom is different. The lighting, paint, furniture, and curtains in your room must complement the bedding’s texture, color, and other aesthetic features. You could use an online tool like ‘Adobe Color’ to select a color palette that looks beautiful and fits your taste and bedroom’s vibe.
Choosing the right bedding is essential for adding a homey touch to your new apartment. Not only should your bedding be aesthetically pleasing, but it should also be comfortable and durable. In this way, you’ll have yourself a cozy bedroom where you can rest after a long day of work.
