Where tile is concerned, the phrase “less is more” rings true. Gone are the days of covering the entire room in saturated tile. Rather modern bathrooms use colorful tiles to draw attention to a focal point. Use it in a spa-like rainforest shower or as an eye-catching backsplash behind your vanity.

For the opulence of fabric without the formality, try simply hanging a quilt, some lace or a curtain behind your bed. You'll still create a focal point, but it won't require hours of labor. On the opposite end of the spectrum from the fluid feel of fabric is the fixed structure of metal.

From third-party and customer reviews to sleep and health statistics, we covered all the bases. The difficulty in any review like this one is that every person has a unique preference. For example, some people are side sleepers, while others sleep on their back, and there are specific types of pillows to facilitate each type of sleeper.
