Box Spring Basics: How to cover your bed's base

You’ve heard of thinking outside the box, but what about thinking on top of it? When it comes to bedding staples, a bed’s box spring is often overlooked. It’s a rookie mistake that’s easily avoidable with a box spring cover or bed skirt. Let’s let the pictures do the talking.

The box spring on this bed is… naked! *gasp! Not its finest look.

no box spring cover

Here’s the same type of bed frame, but with a fitted box spring cover. What a difference a little dressing makes!

BOX BEDUCATION: Complement is Key

When seeking an under cover such as a box spring cover or bed skirt, opt for a neutral shade that will pair with any bedding you choose. If you lean towards warmer colors, a cream, linen, or warm gray would work well. If you’re as cool as a cucumber in the color department, a bright white or cool gray should do the trick.

BOX BEDUCATION: The Fit is It

Fitted box spring covers snugly hug your bed, offering a sharp, tailored look that won’t compete with your bed’s upper layers. This is also an ideal option if you want to tuck your quilt or coverlet in to create clean lines and straight edges.

BOX BEDUCATION: When to Wash

Here’s a happy tip. Most box spring covers are machine washable and super low maintenance in the cleaning department. Wash them with your home’s routine deep-cleaning regiment (every 4-6 months), and you should be good to go.

The often overlooked box spring may not be the cutest part of the bed, but it certainly is an important one. It supports your mattress so your mattress can support you. Show it the attention it deserves with a bed skirt or box spring cover. The head-to-toe attention to detail will set your bed apart in the style department.

If you aren’t sure what will look best with your coverlet or quilt, bring your bed’s top layer by our shop, located in gorgeous Gardner Village.

5 Simple Ways To Bring Spring To Your Home

tips for adding spring touches to your home

A decorated fireplace mantel isn’t the only way to reflect the signs of the season in your home. Your beds and sofas can get in on the seasonal celebrating. The following five tips prove just how easy it is to be intentional with your bedding choices, pillow picks, and even scent selection. Attention to such decor detail will spring every area of your home into the glorious, vibrant season of spring.


THINK SPRING TIP #1: Less is More

Warmer days = lighter layers. Put away anything that feels wintery (thick knit throws, fur blankets, heavily textured pillows, and other cold-weather elements). Heavy layers will likely go unused and can leave your home feeling cluttered during the warmer months.

Take a look at how easy it is to take your favorite chair from winter to spring with an accessory swap. 

bedding changes for the season

 

THINK SPRING TIP #2: Add Color

Take your inspiration from nature. Just as pretty spring blossoms and buds break up winter grays and browns, color can transform your home. Adding your favorite spring shade(s) doesn’t necessarily mean a full home makeover. Small splashes of happy can come from vibrant pillows and accessories or inexpensive wall art. Or you can give your existing wall art (or mirrors) a spring makeover with the addition of a small, lively banner draped across it.

spring florals


THINK SPRING TIP #3: Lighten Up

If neutrals are more in your nature, you can still update your palette for spring. Give your home a fresh look by switching out darker items for lighter, brighter ones. If you have dark pillows on your sofa, replace them with white or cream. Even a light shade of gray can do the trick.

springtime whites 


THINK SPRING TIP #4: Bring the Outdoors In

Houseplants are instant mood boosters. Well, healthy ones, that is. If your thumb lacks a healthy green glow, you can always opt for the artificial. Anymore, it’s tougher and tougher to spot a fake. If plants in any form aren’t for you, floral, leaf, or tropical patterns can also turn your bedroom into an indoor oasis.

spring greens

 

THINK SPRING TIP #5: Make Your Home Smell Like Spring

Swap heavy winter/Christmas candles for a fresh spring fragrance. Whether you fancy floral, always pick fruity, or have a thing for the smell of clean, a lighter fragrance can make your entire home feel flirty and fancy free.

It doesn’t take much to spring into a feeling of freshness and renewal. Any or all of these simple adjustments will change the entire feel of your home and brighten the moods of all who are lucky enough to enter. Find plenty of spring colors, patterns, and even aromas to adore in store at Layers Bedding in Gardner Village, or shop our website for sampling of some of our favorites.

Sheet Speak: How to Pick the Perfect Sheets & Keep Them Looking Great

Experience the night-and-day difference the right sheets can make to your sleep quality and the longevity of your linens. Choosing sheets goes far beyond bed size (though truly understanding size does help!). It’s also about understanding your sleep style and even your lifestyle. The pros at Layers Bedding have tips and tricks to help you make YOUR perfect bed. With this beducation lesson, you’ll be fluent in sheet-speak in no time.  

sheets at layers bedding

1. THE FEEL FACTOR

First thing’s first—the feel! There’s no right or wrong finish to fancy. For some, the secret to sweet dreams is silky sleep-cessories. For others, it’s a clean, crispness that catches the ZZZs. Rubbing sheets between your fingers isn’t the way to identify your fav finish, however. A good night’s sleep comes from understanding how a fabric’s weave works with your internal thermometer.

choosing the right sheets
DON'T BE A SOCCER SLEEPER

To know what weave you need, think about the way you sleep. Are you a hot sleeper? If you crank the AC at night and still find yourself kicking off your bedding in your sleep, you likely need a sheet swap. You want sheets that breathe. Smart options include: linen, bamboo, or a nice cotton percale.


TURN THE HEAT AROUND

If, on the other hand, you’re cool as a cucumber at night, you’d be better off with a finish that holds heat in, such as jersey, flannel, or brushed microfiber.

With sheets that help maintain your temperature comfort zone, you’ll find you sleep much more soundly.

flannel sheets

2. AVOID THE POP TOP

There are few things more annoying than a fitted sheet that doesn’t stay put. If popping corners are disrupting your dreams, your sheets aren’t right for your mattress.  Once upon a time, sheets came in twin, full, queen, and king. Today, you’ll find sheet sizes such as twin XL, short queen, and even split king. If you aren’t sure what it all means, don’t hesitate to ask. While we carry the basic sizes in store, we can absolutely order specialty sizes, should you need them. If you’re unsure, come in with your mattress measurements in hand (or call for help remotely—801.562.1933).

TIP: When measuring your mattress, don’t forget to factor in its depth. Not all are equal. Some are 7” while others can be as thick as 20” + a 2” memory foam topper.

3. COLOR VS. WHITE

Now that you’ve got the fundamentals figured out, it’s time to talk cosmetics. Let’s look at some pros and cons of white sheets vs. colors/patterns.

fresh linens

WHITE PRO: White sheets are classic. Whether they’re a crisp cotton, a silky sateen, or a lush linen, white sheets never go out of style.

WHITE CON: White can lose its luster. The fear of dingy white is enough to scare off many bedding buyers.


TIP: If you shy away but long for white’s simplicity, you might want to invest in more than one set. This way, you can change your sheets out more often, extending the white life. Of course, the need for extra sheets could be considered a con.

floral sheets



COLOR/PATTERN PRO: If you long for a pop or color without extra throw pillows, fun sheets can be your simple solution. Simply fold the top layer of bedding back to reveal the cuteness waiting within. An added pro: this adds a layered look to your bed without the added weight of additional blankets.

COLOR/PATTERN PRO: Colored/patterned sheets are great at hiding dirt and spots. Same is true for hair and fur—great news for those who share their sleeping quarters with fur babies (or a hairy fella!).

COLOR/PATTERN CON: Color and pattern trends come and go, which can timestamp your bedding and limit its shelf life.


SHEET CLEANING DEETS

How often should I wash my sheets? We get this question often. We recommend washing your sheets at least once a week. Such suds work is good for the sheet quality (avoid the dinge) and your skin (avoid the acne). Plus, as much as we dislike even the word “sloughing,” we mustn’t forget the skin’s natural process that takes place during sleep. Best to wash that business right out of your bed on a regular basis.

KEEP WHITES WHITE

Being in the bedding business, we’ve tried many different cleaners. OxyClean White Revive wins. It’s best to use it from the get-go. Contrary to the product’s name, it doesn’t bring dingy whites back to bright life, but it does help maintain whites so you can avoid the dinge to begin with.

Oh, and don't forget to treat spots and stains as soon as they happen. Letting them sit will increase the likelihood of them becoming permanent.

How to Show Yourself Love this Valentine's Day

volcano candle

“Self love”—an expression often used but rarely practiced. At Layers Bedding, we want to change that. This Valentine’s Day, tell Cupid to change the trajectory of his arrow from aiming for another to pointing directly back at you. Sure, it’s easy it is to dismiss such TLC. Ain’t nobody got time (or money) for that! We get it. But we aren’t talking a weekend away or an expensive spa package (as nice as those things sound). A greater impact can actually be made with just a few “you” minutes daily. This can be as simple as waking up five minutes earlier than you normally would to curl up in a cozy blanket with a good book. Or an intentional unwind at night, soaking in the tub with a candle lit. Practicing daily mindfulness can mean a dramatic shift in your overall happiness and ability to handle stress. See how that works? What might initially feel selfish is actually a selfless win for all involved. Nice! And what better time than the month of amoré to put such rituals into practice? So go ahead and hint drop. Send your valentine this gift guide. Better yet, treat yourself to some of our favorite home decor, bedding, and bath favorites.


SELF LOVE IDEA #1: Candlelight

Changing your atmosphere even slightly can greatly impact the calm factor of your home. Since it’s too chilly to open a window and welcome fresh air, a candle is an excellent option. Plus, both this coconut milk mango pineapple candle ($29.99) and the pink Volcano candle ($32.99) above look adorable AND leave your home smelling heavenly.

SELF LOVE IDEA #2: Cozy Comfort

A super duper, softer-than-soft throw will turn any day around. This Sherpa throw ($24.99) is just the blanket to get such a job done. Sooooo cozy!

The Sherpa is currently only available in store, but we have numerous comforting options in our online shop. This Wruffle Pink throw, for example, makes even Cupid's heart go pitter patter.

SELF LOVE IDEA #3: A Warm Embrace

Look at you. Your candle is lit. Your muscles have relaxed after a soothing soak or hot shower. The only thing left is the comfort of a welcoming robe. This Frosted Fleece Robe ($89.99) is our favorite. It’s extremely comfortable without weighing you down in excess bulk.

bathrobe

SELF LOVE IDEA #4: You Gotta Have Heart

Bonus idea because, well, it’s Valentine’s Day, and we can’t resist. You’ve got your best blanket, your yummy candle is lit, and you’re wrapped in a comforting robe. Complete this soothing equation with your favorite indulgence on display in a happy heart-shaped dish. Love chocolate? Buy a bag of Hershey Kisses. Want a healthy snack? Grab those pistachios. Is a cup of hot tea your ticket to Relaxation Town? Those teabags sure would look cute in here. Whatever it is that offers you some pure pleasure will made all the better with a loving presentation.

wood heart dish

Just like that. You’re well on your way to some long overdue TLC. Of course, these soothing essentials make great gifts, too. Grab one item or combine a few into a self-love care package. Remind that certain someone special of their worth and that there’s no shame in the pampering game. Together, we can take this self-love mission far. And… exhale.

Five Ways to Layer Your Bed This Winter

the boyfriend coverlet
 

It’s officially winter. Time to layer! You can leave that outerwear in the closet—this is all about indoor layering. We’re here to help you bundle up your bedding. From quilts to coverlets to duvets, we have ideas for those who just want a little extra warmth to those who are looking to lay it on thick. Which combo category is calling your name?

 

LAYERS OPTION #1: Blanket or Coverlet/Duvet Combo

 

Eve

Do you tend to sleep hot or run cold? Can’t decide! Don't worry, this cooperative combo has your back. One layer is really thin for when you are sleeping hot, while the other is thick and fluffy for colder nights.

 

BEDUCATION TIP: A blanket or coverlet is typically the thinnest layer you'll add to your bed, so we recommend you place it first, covering your entire bed. From there, a folded duvet at the base of the bed is just the ticket. It will add some fluff and texture to your made bed during the day and be ready to warm you once night falls.

 

BEDUCATION TIP: If space allows, position a bench at the foot of your bed so you can easily move your duvet and give it the night off when you’re feeling warm. A footboard is another ideal option. Either will keep your added covers within arm’s reach should you need them. After all, the last thing you want to do when you’re freezing is get OUT of bed in search of warmth.

GRADATION TICKING BLANKET

Trade the pressure of the day's ticking clock with the comfort of the Gradation Ticking Blanket.

 

LAYERS OPTION #2: The Quilt/Duvet Combo

quilt duvet combination 

This bedding combo is very similar to the blanket or coverlet/duvet combo. The big difference is that quilts have batting, so this combo can potentially be the warmer solution. But the same layering technique applies—your quilt goes on first, covering the entire bed, and your duvet sits folded in a happy bundle at the foot of your bed.

 

 

LAYERS OPTION #3: Quilt/Quilt Combo

quilt layering 

Can’t stand a duvet? That’s okay! We know they’re not for everyone. It doesn’t mean you can’t take advantaged of doubled-up winter bedding. Simply apply two quilts. The first will cover your mattress, and the second will be ready and waiting at the end of your bed.

 

BEDUCATION TIP: When it comes to how to fold quilt #2, there are no rules. Fold in the half so it covers the bottom half of your bed, or fold it in half again (so it’s in fourths) and have just a strip draped across your bed’s base.

 

**SHOP OUR FAVORITE THICK QUILTS**

 

BRUSSELS QUILT, NATURAL

Of all our quilts, the beautiful Brussels has to be our fluffiest and most cloud-like option. Heavenly!

LAYERS OPTION #4: Add a Comforter

 

Love a fluffy bed but don’t want to fight with (or spend added money on) a duvet cover? Add a comforter! Position it over your sheets and under your quilt, so it’s sandwiched between your top and bottom layers. This will help keep it clean, which is important. You don’t want to be regularly cleaning a comforter.

LAYERS OPTION #5: Start with the Sheets

 

Still feeling that nip of frost’s bite? Flannel sheets to the rescue! A nice, high quality set can be so soothing and welcoming at the end of a long day. If flannel feels a tad too heavy, our Brushed Microfiber Sheets are the stuff that dreams are made of. Either way you approach it, a good quality sheet can make all the difference!

Ha! Take that, Old Man Winter! Added warmth is just a layer away. Find your ideal bedding combination on our Layers Bedding website or in store at Gardner Village in West Jordan, Utah.

How to Successfully Pair Bright White & Cream Bedding

Contrary to what some may think, it IS okay to pair your bright white bedding with warmer shades of cream and ivory. Pulling off such a look just requires a little neutral knowhow.

white bedding

QUANTITY IS KEY, CONTRAST IS CRUCIAL

When pairing white with cream, it’s best to include multiple pieces of both shades. If you were to add a single cream pillow to an otherwise white bed (white quilt, white duvet, white pillows, etc.), for example, the pillow would feel random and out of place.

layers bedding at gardner village
Include contrast. If your white is too similar to your cream (as is the case with our what-not-to-do example above), your bed will appear mismatched and accidental. A deeper cream with a bright white is both intentional and interesting!

decorative pillows in white and cream

The added contrast makes a greater impact.
how to pair bedding

ALL THE FEELS

How do you keep a monochromatic look from falling flat? The trick is texture! In the absence of contrasting colors, a variety of bedding finishes and fabrics will add interest and depth. Go ahead and pair that wavy waffle coverlet with a seriously legit knit throw. Play with pom pillows and layer lace accents. Even if your bed is all one color, the mixing and matching of finishes will create cozy contrast and excitement!

beducation texture tip: Avoid placing similar textures together. Doing so can lack definition and leave your bed looking busy and messy.

waffle bedding

This waffle white quilt paired with the waffle white throw lacks definition. It's hard to know where one stops and the other begins. Instead, opt for obviously contrasting shades.

Awww! Much better!

THE CREAM OF THE CROP

Don’t complicate things with numerous shades of white and cream. Instead, use hues that are similar to each other (whites with like whites and creams with like creams). For example, you don’t want to use a bright white and a gray white or a yellow cream and a beige cream. Keep it consistent.

layers bedding

beducation color tip: We recommend avoiding creams that pull yellow, as they can be difficult to pair with white.

THIRD PARTY PLAY

Introducing a third neutral shade is another way to up the interest without upsetting your monochromatic magic. The trick is sticking with common underlying tones. For example, if you use a white duvet and cream pillows in warm shades, go with a warm gray as your third color.

gray accent pillows

Just like that, you’ve mastered white space. Feeling, ahem, enlightened? Enjoy the relaxing atmosphere neutral bedding invokes. You’ll find the latest in neutral looks at Layers Bedding, both in store at Gardner Village and on our website at layersbedding.com.
