With so many products, choosing the right bedding isn’t as straight forward as it once was – do you want something you can wash at home or that helps your body self regulate heat? Do you want goose down or duck feather?
Here’s our helpful guide, with 10 simple questions to ask when choosing bedding, to help you find your perfect bed partner:
- What weight do you want from your duvet – ultra light, light, medium, medium-heavy?
- Do you get too hot during the night or suffer from night sweats?
- Is your partner’s temperature the opposite to yours?
- Would you like to change your duvet tog weight according to the season?
- Would you like bedding that could be washed and refreshed at home?
- Do you suffer from allergies?
- Do you prefer a natural filling?
- Do you require specialist back, head or neck support?
- Would you sleep better if your mattress was more comfortable?
- How many pillows do you like to sleep with?
Our sleep experts offer the following product advice based on essential questions for finding your ideal bedding.
The weight of a duvet is always the first question we ask when establishing what people want from their bedding, because there is quite a big difference between products like the ultra light synthetic Boutique Silk and lightness of premium down to heavier products that have a more hotel, traditional feel, like our Duck Feather and Down duvet.
The breathability of a duvet is becoming more important than ever – and this can be vital for anyone who has answered yes to questions two and three (who gets too hot during the night, who suffers from night sweats or whose partner’s temperature the opposite to theirs). The Fine Bedding Company’s Breathe™ range (now available in stores) is the ideal solution as it is exceptionally breathable and helps with climate control.
When it comes to tog weight, the norm during the summer is a 4.5 tog, while in winter a 13.5 tog will keep you toasty. Most Fine Bedding ranges offer the option to choose a Four Seasons duvet, which consists of a 4.5 duvet and a 9.0 tog duvet that can be used separately as required or fastened together to create a 13.5 tog option, allowing you to easily change your duvet’s tog throughout the year according to your requirements.
The Fine Bedding Company’s award winning Spundown range is a fabulous washable at home duvet and pillow range filled with 100% Smartfil fibre technology, whilst all of the synthetic products tick the box in terms of non allergenic properties.
For those who decide only natural filled products will do, there is still lots of choice – from ultra light and thermally efficient Platinum European Goose Down to heavier weight Goose Feather Down and Duck Feather Down.
If you ticked the box for back, head or neck support then The Fine Bedding Company’s specialist pillow range will meet your needs, while mattress toppers can transform the comfort of a mattress at a fraction of the price of a new mattress.
