Achieving a good night's sleep has become increasingly challenging due to the current climate. Pre-pandemic, a fresh set of sheets or brand-new pillow completed the job, though now, our personal and professional lives are synonymous, continually blurring – leaving it near-impossible for some of us to unwind or relax.
So, what's the solution to this 'new normal'? Considering we're living where we work and working where we live, upgrading our current bedding is an absolute requirement, and the way we can do just that?
Two words: luxury bedding.
Luxury bedding is all about treating ourselves to the best-of-the-best of bedding, and right now, seeing as it's National Bed Month, there's never been a better time to invest in the best mattress or most comfortable sateen sheets. Which is why we're here with a carefully crafted list of the nine stylish upgrades you don't just want, but need.
1. Invest in a brand-new mattress for a clean slate
A worn-out mattress is the most common reason for your restlessness. Put an end to your sleepless nights, and treat yourself to a brand-new mattress. This little luxury is not only well-deserved but will bring your best night's sleep ahead of you.
2. Update to a set of sheets that remain as comfortable as your beloved cashmere sweater
The pandemic put an end to our early morning struggles on what to (or what not) to wear. Now, we highly recommend channeling that same energy into your bedsheets. With so many options on the market, it's imperative to be just as selective when looking for your new go-to set.

Was $279, Now $251.10, at Brooklinen
These proprietary cotton-cashmere blended sheets are constructed as a flannel with a diagonal twill weave and brushed finish. This elevated and luxury flannel offering is irresistibly soft and cozy without being too hot or heavy.
3. Opt for scalloped sateen sheets instead
Warm flannel-like sheets not your cup of tea? Implement these sateen sheets for a lighter finish that's as luxurious and enjoyable.
4. Reach for an all-season comforter
The argument between down comforters versus down alternative comforters is never-ending. Weather the storm by reaching for a year-round, all-season suggestion that's high on versatility and comfort.
5. Blend style and sophistication with this duvet cover
Selecting the right duvet comforter is just as important as the right set of sheets or pillows; it's crucial to find an option that speaks to both you and the room's aesthetic. Need some help? Incorporate a duvet comforter that mixes both sophistication and style.

7. Turn to this chic cashmere throw
The only thing more luxurious than cashmere sheets? Cashmere throws suitable for everything from beds to couch and all that's in-between.
8. Retire to this plush pillow
There is nothing more annoying than worn-out pillows that don't provide enough support and comfort when you're trying to sleep. Alleviate those woes by investing in a luxury pillow that's worth the investment.
9. Top things off with a mattress topper
Last but not least, round out your bedding overhaul with a mattress topper that will top things off in all the right ways.

This foam mattress topper is excellent for those looking to make their bed softer and relieves pressure points on hips and shoulders. It is in a league of its own when compared to other memory foam versions. This 2-inch responsive foam keeps you at the surface to help you sleep cool and comfortable all night long.
