Invest in a quality mattress.  The number one priority in a bedroom is a fine, quality mattress.  Make sure the mattress is a good fit for you.  Ensure that the mattress offers good support as well as comfort.  The bed is the foundation of the bedroom and should look and feel the best.

Splurge on luxurious sheets, comforters and blankets for the bed.  The bed is the focal point of the room and should be adorned with bedding that is soft and sumptuous.  Add a few extra pillows for decorative accents and for comfort.  Drape plush throws across the bed for added softness.
