You've found your perfect mattress and are ready to get your best sleep ever. Now what? Well... mattress accessories!


When it comes to your bed, you can think of your mattress as the main course and accessories of the side dishes and sauces. So if you're ready to upgrade your sleep even more, here are the best mattress accessories to consider.

1. Bedding


Don’t forget your linens! As life gets busy, it’s easy to forget to tend to your bedding. But let’s get real: Do your pillows have a musky odor? How old are your sheets? Do they have holes in them? Do you know what that weird stain in the corner is?


If you find that you’re not liking the answers to those questions, refresh your bedding! At Sleep First, we're big fans of the Woven™ TENCEL™ Sheets by Malouf. They’re pretty much everything you could want in a sheet: silky soft and buttery smooth, AND made with natural, eco-friendly materials. They’re crafted using a luxuriously smooth fiber structure from eco-friendly sources that’s good for the earth and your skin.


2. Pillows


We've said it before and we'll say it again: pay attention to your pillows! Where you rest your head as you fall asleep is vital to good sleep posture, and therefor good sleep. Generally speaking, it's best to replace your pillows every 1-2 years.


Just like mattresses, different pillows are right for different sleepers. At Sleep First, we love the Shredded Gel Dough Pillow, an innovative memory foam pillow with a cool, soft, breathable and incredibly comfortable foam. Plus it's covered in.a bamboo velour cover, so it's sustainable and hypoallergenic!


3. Bases


Your mattress base is the foundation of your bed, and its importance is not to be overlooked! When it comes to bases, you've got options! You can go for a simple platform base, a supportive flat foundation, or a versatile adjustable base. Different bases are good for different situations, though we always recommend springing for an adjustable base if you can, as it'll give you the most options!

4. Blankets


When it comes to creating a cozy sleep environment, nothing beats a good blanket! We highly recommend the Anchor Petite Weighted Blankets, which can help calm your nervous system and lull you into a deep sleep. It's a luxe, super soft blanket that comes in 3 sizes and 4 different weights, so you can find one that works perfectly for you.


5. Mattress Protectors


Mattress protectors are a great way to keep your mattress clean and prolong its lifespan, as it protects the mattress from stains, dust mites, bacteria, wear and tear. The Sleep Tite Pr1me Terry mattress protector, which features a hypoallergenic and absorbent cotton terry surface that sleeps comfortably and will not change the feel of the mattress.
