Sleeping and just lying in bed are two of the best things to do in the world. But to fully enjoy them, you have to have the right set of beddings.

There’s a lot to consider when purchasing bedding. Things like comfort, durability and cost all factor into which bedding is best for you. We want to make things easier for you; hence, we provided some tips below:

Consider the Style of Your Bedroom Decor

If you have a certain bedding style in mind, purchase bedding that goes along with what’s already in your bedroom. For example, if you have a rustic bed frame and bedding with a blue tone, you can purchase bedding with a blue tone or colours that complement blue.

Make Sure It's Appropriate for Your Bed Type

You wouldn't want to buy a thin down comforter if you have a large mattress. The same goes for someone with a small mattress. If you have a California King mattress and you buy a regular king size bedspread, there is a possibility that you won’t be able to tuck it in on the sides.

Think About Maintenance

Purchasing bedding that doesn’t require much maintenance will save you money in the long run. It’s reasonable to assume that a person spends a third of their life in bed, so you want to make sure you can afford the best quality that will last you a while and not put a dent in your budget.

To ensure that it can be easily maintained, be sure it's 100% cotton, has a high thread count (300 or more) and has a durable weave. The weave is important because you don't want any threads to snap over time. An easy way to check the thread count is to hold the fabric up and see how many threads are in a square inch. The higher the thread count, the higher the quality.

What Goes Into the Bedding

Some things go into a bedding you need to be familiar with:

Bed Linen

The top layer of bedding is the bed linen, which is usually a blanket or comforter. The bed linen is typically put on right away in the morning when getting out of bed. Bed linen is usually washed regularly, sometimes even weekly or more, depending on how often you use it.


The pillowcases go on top of the pillows and are used at night. They are also washed on a regular basis.

Duvet Covers

Duvet covers are insert-type covers. They go around the duvet and typically snap closed on a duvet insert of a set.


Duvets are used by many to replace a traditional comforter. Duvets are typically lightweight, so those more sensitive to the cold tend to like them.

Get the Best Bedding for You

A bed is something you spend a lot of time in, so you want to make sure it’s a place you can relax and sleep well. Using the tips above will help you find the bedding that’s best for you. As much as possible, buy the best quality and cost-effective bedding available so you can have that much-deserved rest after a long day, every night.
