We all know that high quality bedding is something that our beds and sleeping habits can benefit from. However, budgetary constraints don’t always make this possible leading some people to buy cheaper, lower quality bed linens than they would if price wasn’t an issue.
Buying such bed linen can end up costing you in the long run as you will just end up replacing your linens on a much more regular basis.
If good quality bed linens is what you’re after but your budget won’t stretch that far, here are our top tips for buying bedding on a budget:
- Fabric is important
It is common knowledge that a higher thread count equates to a higher quality of bed linen. However, it is also important to take the type of fabric into account and sometime the type of fabric you choose can have a bigger impact on your comfort than high thread count sheets.
Cotton sheets are a great choice for budget conscious buyers as it is a light and breathable fabric which is also durable yet very soft.
Many stores tend to change their bedding stock on a seasonal basis meaning there are often lots of sales to be got throughout the year. This means that you can find yourself fantastic bargains on high quality bedding.
You can also find greatly reduced, high quality bedding in outlet stores so make sure to check out their stock on a regular basis to increase your chances of getting yourself some fine bed linens that will last.
- Online stores
Online bedding stores offer everything from a woollen underlay to Egyptian cotton sheets at fantastic prices.
A quick search for what you are looking for will throw up hundreds of results which you can view at your leisure and you may be even able to find yourself some coupons or discount codes which will further reduce the price.
When purchasing online, make sure that you double check the delivery charges as you don’t want to be stung by exorbitant postage prices that turns your bargain into a rip-off!
- Easy care bedding
Whether you decide to purchase online or in store, make sure to check the maintenance and care instructions carefully. This is because some bedding requires specialist cleaning while others, such as washable quilts Australia, can just be popped into a washing machine.
If the budget bedding that you purchase requires particular care, it can end up costing you a lot of money in the long run between dry cleaning bills and specialist laundry products.
- Bedding sets
When you begin to trawl through all that’s out there, you may come across something referred to as a ‘bed-in-a-bag’.
A ‘bed-in-a-bag’ is a complete bedding set which often includes pillow cases, flat sheets, a quilt cover and a matching runner or throw. These sets often work out much cheaper than purchasing all items individually.
