Choosing Bedding for Comfort and Style

You have just purchased new bedroom furniture, and now you have to find the right bedding to match the great space you have created for yourself. Here are some tips for finding the right materials for original bedding that you will be happy to come home to, as well as some of the best sources for creating original bedding that you can add to your room.

Bed Sheets

When it comes to bedding, it is important to choose sheets that have the highest thread count you can afford. This will make for a much comfortable sleep, and the sheets will last longer, so you will be able to save money in the long run. A thread count of about 300 is usually best, although there are some sheets that have higher thread counts which makes for a sheet that is softer and more comfy. However, be careful of very high thread counts as this material is thicker and has a tendency to pill and split under stress.

You do not have to go to high-end department stores in order to find the sheets that you want since many of the discount department stores, such as Walmart and Kmart, now have quality sheets with a high thread count that will be just as comfortable and long-lasting.

Bed Comforters

Next, you will have to find the right comforter for the bed. This is the part of the bedding that will keep you warm, and if you choose the right blankets, you could save a considerable amount of money on heating bills during the winter. The comforter you choose should be high quality as well. Goose down comforters will keep you especially warm, and they last for a very long time. Flannel or cotton comforters may work well for your bed, but you may have to layer them in order to stay warm, depending on how cozy you like to be when you sleep. Bedding in neutral colors is always best, because this gives you the ability to change up the decor in your room any time you want. So, try choosing a comforter that is tan, brown, or gray so that it will always match the accents you have chosen for the room.

Bedroom Accent Pillows

One of the accents you can use for your bedding is pillows. If you have a neutral comforter, brightly colored pillows can wake the room up. In addition, since these types of pillows are usually affordable, you can change them out any time you want. You can shop stores like Target or IKEA for pillows that will look great on your bed or in your reading chairs, and if you want to make some pillows yourself, you can buy fabric from stores like Michael's or Walmart, as well as pillow stuffing, and make the pillows you want for less than $5 a pillow.

Choosing bedding for comfort and style is not difficult and if you want more great tips on how you can decorate in the bedroom, you can check out materials available from department stores such as Macy's.
