The Hotel Secret for the Most Comfortable Bed
Turns out there's a simple trick
hotels use to give guests the perfect night of sleep. An extra middle sheet is placed between the fitted and top sheets, then dressed with a comforter or duvet. Also, the quality of the sheets (breathable 100 percent cotton) is more important than the thread count, says Brian Povinelli, senior vice president and global brand leader for Westin Hotels & Resorts
. Additionally, borrow a spa-relaxation technique
to make your night haven even more blissful: Use soft fabrics, like mohair, in the bedroom to absorb sounds. Start by throwing down a faux sheepskin rug—like this $13 one from IKEA
—next to your bed to soften footsteps.
