Your bed should be the place you least want to leave in the morning and the destination you can't wait to get back to at the end of a long and arduous day. But how can you make it truly irresistible? What small and easy steps can you take to ensure your bedroom is the most comfortable and welcoming spot in your home? 

Have no fear if you're drawing a blank, as we have some great ideas that any interior designer would be happy to agree with. Get yourself in the right frame of mind by making a cup of tea and curling up in a favourite chair, before reading all about how you can upgrade your bed from comfy to super cosy. 

You won't regret it come bedtime! 

1. Keep windows open as much as you can

To get lots of fresh air in the room.

2. Add colourful throws made from luxury materials

The heavier the fabric, the cosier it will feel.

3. Install matching bedside lamps

For a warmer atmosphere than main bedroom lighting can offer.

4. Add fairy lights to your headboard

It might go against everything you think you know, but some furry companionship will up the cosy factor.

Draw them closed for extra cosiness.

9. Treat yourself to expensive pillows

You won't regret it and nor will your neck and back when they melt into them.

10. Buy the highest thread count bed linen that you can afford
