Shopping for bedding can be frustrating. You spend hours researching different types of bedding, comparing styles, and finding the perfect color to complement your bedroom paint, only to have your bedding fall apart after a few washes. By following these simple tips, you can find bedding that is high quality and will last for years to come.
Look for a High Thread Count
Bedding is described using thread count, which means the number of threads in the material. To be durable and comfortable, luxury bedding should have at least a 500 thread count. The higher the thread count, the softer and more durable the fabric will be.
Look for the Right Fabric
When you are looking to buy designer bedding, be sure to pay attention to the type of fabric. The most durable and high quality wool is merino. Synthetic blankets can also be very durable and easy to wash, making them a great choice.
Look for Type of Fill
The type of filling in modern bedding can make a difference in quality and durability. High quality bedding tends to use filling with a considerable amount of “loft,” or voluminous and light filling. Down is a great example of a filling with loft because it is lightweight and a small amount of down can fill a large amount of bedding. You can identify loft by reading the labels of bedding and looking for down, or feeling the bedding’s weight and volume by hand.
Once you find your perfect bedding set, you probably won’t want to give it up for a long time. Following these tips will help you find bedding that is not only high in quality but also durable.
