At one time cohabitation was a once-in-a-lifetime event, marked by the groom carrying his bride over the threshold of their new home. Those days are in the past, though, and circumstance brings many couples together at different points in their relationships with much less grandeur. While bringing home a new partner can be an exciting time, it can be a little nerve-wracking at the same time. Like many, you may find yourself set in your old ways: You might have your own side of the bed, you don't know how to share the blankets with someone else, or you might even fall asleep with the television playing. Preparing your bedroom for a new partner can help you both feel comfortable in your home, and it won't take long before you love sharing your bed with someone new.
When you live alone, you might find yourself slacking off when it comes to cleaning. Even if you change your sheets regularly, you probably don't think about cleaning your comforter, vacuuming the floor or even putting away dirty laundry. Before your new partner shows up, take the time to fully clean your bedroom. Now is your chance to hide away those embarrassing items you don't want your partner to see, including those mismatched socks on the floor, the romance novels lining your shelves and the the piles of clothing peeking out of your closet. Eliminate everything that you don't want your partner to see, or at least put those items in an out-of-the-way spot.
Sharing linens with someone after living alone is difficult for anyone. After spending time sleeping in bed alone with your blankets and sheets, you might find that you cannot sleep with a single sheet like your new partner does. The Twovet couples comforter is a great choice for couples who typically sleep with different linens. One side of the comforter is thin and lightweight, while the other side is thicker and warmer. Made from eco-friendly materials, the comforter also has a hypoallergenic filling that won't irritate his or your skin. This comforter lets you curl up in bed together even if one of you likes sleeping with heavier blankets.
Dust mites crawl inside your pillows and leave behind skin cells that can irritate your skin and cause allergies. Your skin also scrapes off on the pillows, causing dark stains and leaving behind a particular smell. You can clean your pillows at home in your washing machine, but why not grab some new pillows before your partner spends the night? Buying a mixture of thicker and thinner pillows is an easy way to ensure the comfort of your partner. You might find that he loves something thicker and firmer than the pillows you already own.
Make your first night together more memorable. Turn the lights down low, light some scented candles and see where the night takes you. Don't forget to change your sheets before your partner arrives, and if you want to really make the mood sizzle, opt for silk or satin sheets that feel luxuriously soft on your skin. Some couples prefer the feel of cotton or flannel sheets on cool nights, but you can buy whatever sheets you want for your home.
Spending time with a new partner can fill you with excitement, but you probably feel a little nervous before introducing that person to your bedroom. Using the right comforter, setting the mood, cleaning and bringing in some new pillows can make him feel as comfortable in your bedroom as you do.
