Bedding Basics 101

Who doesn’t love new bedding?! I know I do—nothing makes me happier than crisp, clean, new sheets. You know you’re an adult when new bedding gets you excited!

Ever notice that hotel beds are THE BEST? They’re soft, cozy, and oh so inviting! For the new year, I decided to refresh my master bedding, investing in quality bedding basics to create my very own version of the all-white hotel room beds I love.

Here’s my 101 to bedding basics and how to style your bed like a pro.

Know Your Basics

You have mattress pads, pillows, and pillow protectors.

I cannot stress enough how important it is to protect your mattress with a mattress pad! You don’t want to spend all that money and let your mattress get damaged. Mattress pads also help with protecting the mattress from allergens like dust and dust mites.

Good pillows are an investment and pillow protectors are an inexpensive way to protect and keep your pillows clean and fresh.

Now that your mattress is protected it’s on to your sheets, comforter, quilts, and duvet covers. For your sheets, I would aim for a thread count no lower than 250—by the way, thread count is the number of yarns per square inch woven together to create the sheet.

Comforters can be filled with materials such as down feathers or down alternative fill.  You can choose the weight and warmth of your comforter based on where you live and your comfort preferences.

Note: Make sure to have at least two sets of sheets. That will allow you always to have a clean set. Also, choose a comforter that is machine washable, it will save you the hassle of dry cleaning.

 

Make it Your Own

Have fun when it comes to your bedding—try adding different textures or patterns, and make it your own. You can add more pillows if you want, or keep it simple. By the way, there is no such thing as having too many pillows—in case your significant other asks.

The sky is the limit here—make your bed a cozy retreat! There is nothing better than hopping into a comfy bed late at night after a long day.

I am so proud of how our bed looks! Both my husband and I love it so much and can’t wait to cozy up in it every night. The faux fur throws and pillows add the perfect touch too, don’t you think?
