Your bedroom and bathroom can be calm, peaceful retreats from the stresses of everyday life. Stock up on stylish bed and bath accessories that will transform your space into an oasis.
Make the Bed
New bedding is the simplest way to redecorate your bedroom in just a few minutes. Bedding sets make it easy to coordinate your bed linens—they typically come with a comforter, sheets and shams in one package.
If you want to choose each element individually, here’s what to keep in mind:
It all starts with the right mattress. Choose between foam or spring coils, depending on the support you need. Top it with a mattress pad to protect your mattress while adding an extra layer of softness to your bed.
Select your bed sheets depending on the season. Flannel will keep you warm on cold winter nights, while crisp percale and linen are refreshing in summer. Cotton sheets with a high thread count will be comfortable throughout the year. Add a bed skirt to hide under-bed storage.
Choose bed pillows that suit your sleep style. Flatter pillows work well for back and stomach sleepers, while firm pillows are best for side sleepers. For a decorative touch, choose pillow shams and throw pillows.
Nestle in with a comforter, quilt or duvet cover. Choose from patterns, like florals or damask, or go with a solid color and add visual interest with an area rug, drapes and accessories.
In the bathroom, updating your bath towels, mats and shower curtain will refresh your entire space. To decorate a guest room, use soft, high-quality linens to make your guests feel pampered. White towels make the room feel clean and fresh. Coordinate with matching bathroom fixtures like a mirror, waste basket and soap dispenser.
Whether you have a small powder room or you’re looking for master bathroom ideas, organization is key to a functional space. Choose a sturdy hamper for laundry, and store toiletries and accessories in baskets or jars. If space is limited, go vertical with shelving and store items neatly and within reach.
