Project Deacon: New Bed For A New Man

The first big furniture purchase for Project Deacon was a new bed. My old bed was a full size with a squeaky metal bed frame, old sheets and blankets. This had to go.

I bought a California King. 600 thread count sheets (to start), numerous pillows, and a nice wooden bed frame.

I wanted a bed that I would be happy to get into every night. Mission accomplished.

I wanted a bed that women want to get into every night, and stay in every morning. According to my girlfriend, mission accomplished.

I wanted a bed I could sleep sideways on and still have enough room. Mission accomplished.

Beds are expensive. Not every one can go out and drop a few grand on a new bed at the drop of a hat. If you are going to buy anything to improve your living space, my first recommendation would be a nice bed. Save if you have to. This is going to be far more important than a new table, couch, chairs, or big screen TV.

The benefit to your life is huge though. You spend about a third of your life in a bed, and will have a lot of fun in your bed. Make it count. I can’t stress enough the importance of a great bed.

Do you want to live in a space that is great in spite of your bed, or one in which your bed makes your space even better?

A modern man, successful with women, will have a great bed.

Here are my guidelines for getting a new bed:

  • Get a mattress larger than you think you can fit in your room. It’s worth the sacrificed space to have a big bed. Nobody ever thinks to themselves, “I wish I had gotten a smaller bed”. Get a King Size if you can.
  • Get high thread count sheets. I got two sets of 600 thread count sheets to start, and am looking to upgrade to 1000 thread count sheets when I can. The higher the thread count, the better the sheets will feel.
  • Get a lot of pillows with varying firmness. Good for comfort and pillow fights.
  • Take some time to match everything, and pick a scheme that goes with your room. I spent longer shopping for sheets and a comforter cover than I did for my bed. I wanted to pick colors that I liked, that I wanted to have in my room, and would go with future rugs, curtains, furnture, etc.
  • Get a wooden bed frame, not metal. It looks nicer and is less squeaky. I got mine for half off when I bought my bed. You can find bargains.

      Canopy beds also impress. Funny you wrote this now, I just did the same thing. I got a queen bed, 800 thread count sheets, microfiber blanket, and canopy bed frame, with sheer curtains that match the rest of my room. It’s nice knowing my bed rocks.

      Ha! I almost got a canopy bed myself. At least I considered it for about 2 seconds, which is quite long for me. In the end, a canopy just didn’t fit my personality. I remember staying over at girl’s places that had canopy beds. Really cool. It’s like your own private world in there…
