Tips for Newlyweds: Bedding or Bed in a Bag?
Written by: Bedding Style
Newlyweds are gifted many things for the home, bedding being just one of them. But one set isn’t usually enough for the home. You’ll need at least two, one designed for winter, and that’s just for the married couple. Bringing children into the home presents even more complications for sheets, especially with all of the allergen-free varieties.
Here are some simple tips that newlyweds can use to find bedding that suits their new home, and their growing family.
Buy Something That Will Last
One thing you’ll notice about bedding sets is that they have thread counts that seem very arbitrary at first glance. The difference is not only in the texture, but in the strength of the fabric. A high thread count isn’t necessarily the best thing for most people. Higher thread counts do tend to be softer, but thread counts in the range of 400 have the softness and strength you that could really last. Also pay attention to how you maintain your sheets and comforters. Washing instructions should be followed to the letter, even if it’s a hassle, because failure to do so may harm the fabrics used or fade the colors.
Climate and Environment
Keep your climate in mind when you’re shopping for bedding. If you don’t experience four seasons, or your temperatures are relatively mild, you may not need down comforters. Synthetic can provide just as much insulation without the price tag. That said, you may have other concerns like allergens. Also consider how each of you sleeps. If one sleeps warmer than the other, you may benefit from a smaller throw sheet over one side of the bed. You’ll want to spend your money where it counts and buy fabrics that will suit your needs.
Bedding by the Piece or by the Bag?
Bedding is sold in individual pieces, which is excellent for those who want a custom look in the bedroom. However, bedding collections sold in a bag offer a better price for and an excellent starter set. As you grow, you’ll find yourself wanting individual pieces. For newlyweds, a bed in a bag offers you the chance to buy something you can use immediately and at a fraction of the cost. Of course, individual pieces may be preferable if you’re looking to fill in a set you received during the reception. Bedding sold by the bag does not include ever potential piece you might need, like extra pillows or thermal sheets. Sometimes, it’s a good idea to consider both options when you’re shopping around.
