Top 4 Things To Consider When Buying New Bedding

By JS Paul - August 12, 2019

Sleep is important. Period. Yes, we know a lot of rich people claim to sleep 2 hours a night and navy seals do it with their eyes open, but today, that’s not us. No, today we’re talking sleep folks, real good restorative sleep. And it starts with bedding.

Not to be messed with, bedding can make the difference between knock-you-out snoozes or twist and turn nights of pillow warfare. Don’t skim on this one, you need the best product you can get. Here’s a short list of 4 things to consider when shopping for new bedding:

  1. Thread count: It may seem like a small detail but it has the biggest impact. The thread count is how much thread per square inch a sheet will have. Some sheets will have between 200 to 800, however, the most comfortable in our humble opinion have 1000 and above. This does impact warmth as well, just FYI.
  2. Size: Obviously obvious, however we want to make sure you don’t make a mistake here: Buy bedding that fit your mattress size.
  3. Color & Material: Sadly there isn’t one “material fits all” type of product, this is where your climate will dictate what kind of bedding you get, weather wool, cotton, polyester and so on. However we can say that cotton is very versatile and when mixed with a big comforter, it can serve well in winter and in summer. Color will also have an impact, oddly enough, as darker colours may feel a little warmer.
  4. Price: The variance here is staggering. You can find sheets for $50 as much as you can see unicorn prices above $1000. A lot of people swear by Pottery Barn products, we do as well, you’ll find macys, amazon and Pottery Barn themselves sell these products online. Their competitors of course offer great product as well, just make sure to do your research before buying anything.
