Bedding has the power to transform a room, but how do you wade through all there is to learn about bedding? That's where we come in. From styles and colors to sizes and designers, we'll give you the lowdown on bedding and linens.
About Bedding: Styles
There are so many styles and patterns of bedding available, it can make your head spin! You'll want to find a design that either matches or complements your existing color scheme. For example, a black and white bedding set would obviously match a black or white room, but it could also offer interesting contrast in a red room. Some available styles and patterns include:
- Animal, such as zebra
- Sports, such as baseball, soccer, or basketball
Another important point about bedding is the price. Of course, we all want to save money when possible, but sometimes the more expensive piece is a better deal in the long run. If you buy a poor quality clearance bed in a bag and end up needing to replace it within a few months, what have you really saved? Buying a luxury bedding set at a discount is the best of both worlds.
There is a wide range of different materials for modern bedding. From indulgent Egyptian cotton to economical polyester blends, there are many choices. Find out about the most common fabrics for different types of bedding, how to choose the right material for your decor and budget, and seasonal bedding materials, like flannel sheets and comforters for the cooler months.
Specialty Bedding and Bedding Accents
You've seen the traditional sizes of beds and bedding: twin, full, queen, and king. There are also specialty sizes and styles. For example, water beds and canopy beds require special sizes, as do California king beds. In this category, you'll also find out about special bedding accents, like decorative pillows and custom dust ruffles.
Your bedding makes a huge difference in the look, feel, and comfort of your bedroom sanctuary. Armed with the right information, you'll choose the bedding type and style that works perfectly for your life.
