A good night’s sleep
Our main issue was our Queen mattress, although comfortable, was too small for us. We started our small bedroom reboot with a trip to Keetsa, which has the most affordable Eco-friendly mattress options. Our Queen was a Keetsa and held up great! We selected the Keetsa Pillow Plus and due to size restraints, purchased two twins to make up a large King size bed, albeit shorter. The bed frame is sold separately but worth the money; as then no box spring is needed. What I love most, it’s high enough to allow for LOTS of storage under the bed. This is a perk for my rental company!
Dog friendly bed sheets
We adopted a small pup about 8 months ago and she’s lovely but also sheds short dark brown hairs regularly. As someone who lived with white and light colored sheets for a long time, the dog hair was a daily chore and mind blowing! Ironically, she didn’t spend much time on our bed! Enter our best purchase to date and comfortable too; our dark grey GASPA Ikea sheets. At 310 thread count they have a nice sateen finish that make for a ‘brushable’ surface i.e. the dog hair brushes right off and I sleep better without obsessively looking for door hair!
As our bed expanded our current nightstands were pushed out due to size restraints. We wanted an inexpensive, clean looking nightstand for each side with ample storage space. Again, Ikea came to the rescue with two white Nordli night stands with spacious drawers. We were able to opt for the three drawer as our bed is on the taller side but it’s also available in two.
Keep it cool
With Fall around the corner, I am looking forward to open windows and putting the air conditioner in storage. One of the best investments we made in our kitchen was a ceiling fan and it was a must have when rebooting our bedroom. If I could advise on two things, get a 5 blade and a covered light fixture. Our Middleton 42 inch ceiling fan is perfect and was inexpensive.
To continue the momentum with refreshing the house, I picked up The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. So far it’s interesting and I have to say, I do enjoy her ‘method’ of only keeping + storing the items that spark joy. I have lots to get rid of!
I’d love to hear what refresh + reboot projects you’re working on in your home!
