Adding Pazazz to Your Bed Room

Just because you're living in a dorm room doesn't mean your bed has to look ordinary or cheap.
You can easily create an luxurious look by adding a few pieces to your bedding. These additions are
generally inexpensive and will make your entire room look fantastic.

Decide on a Color Scheme
Before you go out and get the items you will need to create an elegant looking bed, decide on the color
scheme you want to use. Try and combine three colors that complement each other in order to create a
more visually appealing look. Consider using a blend of patterns including florals, plaids, stripes and
animal prints.

Add Lots of Layers
When you look at magazines or visit hotels, you will notice that the common element of luxury
bedding is a lot of layers of soft, elegant linens and pillows. To create the most luxurious effect be sure
to include the following bedding products: a bed skirt, a mattress topper and pad, a fitted and flat sheet,
a down duvet, two euro pillows with covers and cases, at least two down bed pillows with covers and
cases, and finally at least one decorative pillow.

Caring for Your Linens
Once you have purchased all of your bedding components and have achieved the look you want,
you will have to take special care of your linens in order to maintain their quality. Be sure to take the
washing and drying instructions that come with your linens and put them with your washing products.
Depending on the fabrics you have purchased, your linens will need some specific care to keep them
from fading or shrinking. Keep all bleach products away from your new bed linens. The chemicals in
bleach can quickly damage the colors. If you have just used bleach in your washer on other items, do
not put your linens into the machine without running a second rinse cycle while it is empty. This will
ensure that any residue bleach has been removed.

No matter what your budget or your particular circumstances, there is a split king that will suit you just perfectly. Why Are Split Kings Made?   A split king is made as a solution for comfortable sleeping for a couple. The bed is divided into two sections so that each person has their own customized side of the bed. This would allow for one person to have a firm mattress while the other person has a soft one, or for one person to have an electric blanket while the other one can sleep blissfully in the chilly night air that they prefer. Sometimes a split king is made for people with medical issues so that the person needing specific medical bedding -- like a bed that sits up and reclines automatically for example -- can have it on their own side but not on the side of the person who is not in need
