As we all know, a good night’s sleep is very important for our daily routine. It reduces stress, improves appetite and mood. Ensuring high-quality sleep begins by surrounding ourselves with a healthy, comfortable environment. And one of the key elements to changing your nightly routine is investing in your bedroom décor. The bedroom is one of the most personal rooms in a home, the place where your day begins and ends. That’s why it’s important that your bedroom décor feels warm and relaxing, gives you a restful feeling and reflects your personality and style. To achieve this, you can use a simple décor trick and that’s choosing the right double bedding sets.
If you’ve ever been trying hard to stretch a fitted sheet over the mattress, then you know the struggle is real. But it’s even worse when you get success, go to sleep and wake up in the morning to find that most of the bedsheet is crumpled underneath you.
Finding the right bedding size can be a daunting task. Not every bed is created equally, also there are some beds with extra deep mattresses or extra-long twin beds. Your bedding is the essential piece for creating a perfect sleep environment and finding the right double bedding size or any other bedding size should be your top priority.
Tips on How to Choose Double Bedding Sets
When you’re comfortable in your bed, your body can relax and you can fall asleep faster, and more importantly, it helps you sleep longer and better.
You should go to bed every night knowing that you’ll get a quality night sleep and wake up fresh and prepare for the day ahead. When it comes to your bedding choice, it’s good to remember that not only it can boost your sleep, but it can also boost your bedroom appeal. You can choose a double bedding size or any other size that fits your bed perfectly and pick from a variety of colours and designs that will match the rest of the room.
Double bedding sets are one of the most popular options in the UK since double beds are the most popular bed size of them all. Measuring 4ft 6’’ across and 6ft 3’’ long or 135cm x 190cm, they are a great choice for many couples, but also for children rooms or single adults that need a little more space than a single bed. They are a great option for a guest room as well, as they are quite roomy for one person, but two adults can still share one.
Double Bed Sheets
One of the first aspects of bedding that should not be overlooked is bedsheets. There are many different fabrics and styles to choose from, however, carefully chosen bed sheets can make your sleeping area feel fresher and more relaxing.
Top Sheet and Bottom Sheet
A top sheet, known as well as a flat sheet, is a sheet that separates you from the quilt, comforter or blanket. A bottom sheet, or fitted sheet, is a sheet with an elastic edge that fits over the mattress. To ensure successfully stretching it over your mattress, you need to take a proper measurement before purchasing one.
Duvet and Duvet Cover
Duvet, or a comforter, is a soft flat bag that fills with down, feathers, wool, or a synthetic alternative and a duvet cover design to protect the duvet. It has an opening where the duvet is inserting and this opening is usually close with a zipper or buttons. The duvet cover has both protective and decorative purposes and can be found in a variety of colours and styles.
A soft blanket is the cosiest thing to keep you warm on cold nights. It traps the heat that escapes from your body and adds warmth. While some people are fine with using the blanket only to keep themselves warm, others top the blanket with an attractive quilt or duvet. Blankets are made of wool, cotton, microfibre plush or a mix of fibres.
Smaller than a regular blanket, a throw blanket is useful for providing some extra warmth when needed by wrapping it around your feet or shoulders. Also, it is a nice way to add a touch of colour and style to your bedroom décor.
Bedspread and Coverlet
A bedspread is a thin covering that spreads over the bed and even touches the floor and is mostly using for decorative purposes only. A coverlet is a decorative fabric covering that has woven coverlets and quilts. They don’t touch the floor and don’t cover the pillows, but they are bed accents that usually sit on top of bedspreads.
As the name implies, a pillowcase is used to cover your pillow. It’s a good idea to change your pillowcase at least twice per week to protect the skin on your face from irritation.
To help you select the right bedding for your double bed, here are some measurements that you may find useful.
- Duvet 200 x 200cm (79 x 79’’)
- Duvet covers – 200 x 200cm (79 x 79’’)
- Flat sheets – 230 x 275cm (91 x 108’’)
- Fitted sheets – 135 or 140 x 190 x 30cm (55 x 75 x 12’’)
- Pillowcase – 50 x 75cm (standard)
Sometimes couples opt for a king-size duvet for their double bed as opposed to a standard double, but this decision is most often made to help them prevent their duvet-hogging partner from stealing all of the quilts while they’re asleep.
