The Best Bed Accessories for Your Sleep Space
1. Box Springs
The first item on our must-get list of bed accessories? A box spring or foundation. Setting up your mattress with a box spring may be just what your sleep space needs to take it to the next level. A box spring can help your mattress maintain shape, make it easy to get in and out of bed and give you a little extra support.
When you're creating your perfect bedroom, never underestimate the importance of the pillow. Where you lay your head can be crucial to how you drift off every night. As a good rule of thumb, you should replace your pillow every two years. Whether you like the plush nature of a down pillow or the cool temp of a gel pillow, there's a perfect pillow for every person.
Before you start your pillow-shopping, consider how the right one can mean the difference between a good and bad night's sleep. The Malouf Z Zoned ActiveDough Gel Mid Loft Pillow is one we recommend, but to each their pill-own. Take it from us: the softer the pillow, the sweeter the dreams.
3. Adjustable Beds
Interested in taking your bed to new heights? An adjustable bed, also known as an adjustable base, may be right for your sleep space. An adjustable bed is a movable foundation that helps elevate your sleep experience, literally! With moving head and/or foot capabilities, you'll have more control over how you sleep. Plus, you can reap the added ergonomic benefits of sleeping in a reclined position, like increased blood circulation. An adjustable bed is ideal for side and back sleepers and for people who suffer from back pain. With an adjustable bed, relaxation is the motivation.
4. Mattress Protectors
A mattress protector is a good way to shield your investment from the daily wear and tear a bed experiences. A protector is an easy way to avoid a dirty mattress, helping protect your bed from airborne allergens, dust mites and other bacteria. The Sleepy's Basic Waterproof Mattress Protector is one that's sure to be a good match for your mattress. So, if you're interested in extending the life of your bed, a mattress protector should be at the top of your list.
