Your Guide to Holiday Home Preparations


Sleeper Sofa

We’re already nearly to Halloween. This means the Holiday Season will be upon us before you know it! Beyond just starting your gift shopping list, it also means it’s finally time to think about your home and whether or not you have everything you need for a happy, festive, and healthy Holiday Season.

Can you believe the Holiday Season is already quickly approaching? It will be here soon! We strongly encourage you to start shopping for the sleep gear and bedroom accents you need sooner rather than later, especially for those guest rooms! Yes, you need much more than a wreath and decorative candles to do this time of year right! Now is the time to think about what your home needs to ensure everyone sleeps well. 

What Do You Need to Prepare Your Home for Holiday Sleep and Comfort?

#1 - A Slumber Oasis for You

For nearly all of us, the Holiday Season is a time to look forward to, but we can’t pretend it’s not also immensely stressful. When you’re working hard to check off everything on your to-do list, sleep is more important than ever. This makes your bed more important than ever! Of course, you need a few basics, like a high-quality mattress and supportive pillow. You may also want to add on a few extra special accessories.

A mattress pad is a wonderful addition to your sleep system because it adds several inches of plush comfort. The top mattress pads do a lot more than that, though. In fact, we have some mattress pads made to keep you warm and toasty! The City Mattress Radiance Temperature Controlled Cooling & Heating Mattress Pad maintains your desired temperature all night long, making it an energy-efficient alternative to heating the entire house.

#2 - A Well-Appointment Guest Room for Friends and Family

You won’t be the only one sleeping at your home during the Holiday Season. Due to the fact that so many people cancelled their winter plans last year, this season is expected to be outrageously popular for traveling. If you have friends, family, or other loved ones from out of town that will be staying with you, even for one night, it’s time to start thinking about where your guests will sleep. 

We have everything one needs to set up the perfect guest room. Your guests deserve to sleep just as well as you do, which means a comfortable and supportive mattress. If you don’t want to spend a lot on a bed that’s only slept on a few times a year, know that we are proud to offer mattresses that fit in everyone’s budget.

A sleeper sofa is a convenient addition to any home. They provide ample seating room and terrific sleep solutions in one compact package. These sofas are designed to accommodate three adults sitting next to each other. A sleeper sofa can pull out to have a Twin, Twin XL, Queen, or even King sized mattress. This means you can have a great spot to take a break or sit in, and then it’s easy to pull out for your guests to have a sleep spot. 

We hope you’ll see your entire family this year, including your grandkids, nieces, nephews, and cousins. When you have kids coming over, a bunk bed is the best way for them to sleep. Yes, we have a sleeper sofa that turns into a bunk bed- the Luonto Elevate Bunk Bed Sleeper Sofa

#3 - Special Sleep Gear for Little Ones

Good luck keeping your kids on their regular bedtime routine through the Holiday Season! They’re out of school, eating tons of sweets, and excited about all of their presents. You know what your kids are like when they don’t sleep well, and you don’t want a major temper tantrum to ruin your party. That’s why setting up their bedroom with a few sleep essentials is such a good idea. 

Remember, kids need a great mattress too! We have dozens of Twin mattress options, all from top name brands. Just like for you, they also need a cozy pillow and warm sheets to snuggle down into. If you want to drown out the noise of the grown-ups staying up late, we recommend a YogaSleep sound machine. Don’t forget blackout curtains so they can sleep in as late as possible!

#4 - Cozy Blankets for All

The season means more than gifts and cookies. It’s cold! While it certainly feels great when you’re outside, it doesn’t feel nearly as wonderful for that chill to be inside your home. You want to be snuggly and warm when you’re in your bed or on the sofa. A great way to achieve this is by finding bedding and throw blankets made with the right materials! Sleep experts recommend flannel, fleece, or cotton sateen sheets during cold nights. This is because they trap body heat and provide greater insulation for cold nights. Don’t forget a down comforter on top of those sheets! Because down can retain just the right degree of warmth all night long, it's considered an ideal blanket for comfortable bedding when the temperature begins to drop

A few of our favorite options for warm bedding include this Beautyrest Oversized Cotton Flannel 4-Piece Sheet Set and the Martha Stewart White Feather And Down Comforter. Remember, when made with top-quality materials, your bedding doesn’t need to be thick in order to keep you warm. Don’t forget to toss a Hotel Grand Luxurious Thermal Cotton Blanket or Rizzy Home Faux Fur Throw Blanket over your couch or favorite napping spot! Want to stay extra warm? Buy a weighted blanket!

There’s a chill in the air! The Holiday Season will be here before you know it. This means out-of-town guests, time off of school and work, parties to plan, meals to cook, gifts to buy, decorations to hang up, and so much more! We encourage you to start planning now, so you can get the healthy sleep you need to feel festive all season long. When you’re not sleeping well, you’re not doing anything else well either.
