Your bedroom is one of the most important rooms in your home. It should be a place that calms you, restores you, and rejuvenates you after a long day at work, running around attending to various errands, and living life in general. There are many ways that you can make your bedroom a tranquil and relaxing space. Interior design experts suggest soft colors as paint choices to create an atmosphere of calm and serenity in the bedroom. You can add lavender to your bedside table to induce a well-deserved and deep sleep. Duvet covers as your main source of bedding are on trend and keep you super warm in the winter and cool in the summer but what you use to cover your duvet also is equally important. If you aren’t already sleeping underneath a cotton duvet cover here’s what you have been missing.
If you have an amazingly high quality hotel style duvet and you cover it with a polyester or synthetic material, you are doing yourself an injustice. Cotton is a naturally occurring plant that is one of the best materials out there that are available for bedding. Cotton duvet covers are 100% breathable and allow you to breath better while sleeping. Sleeping with synthetic duvet covers can cause discomfort and allergic reactions in some people disrupting your sleep cycle and leaving you groggy the next day. Cotton duvet covers, sheets and pillowcases free you from these issues and are the healthier choice.
Cotton Types & Thread counts
Not all cotton is created equal. There are different kinds of cotton on the market and some are better quality than others. For example, Egyptian cotton is regarded by many as the number one type of cotton due to its high-quality fibers and thread counts. Thread counts can range anywhere from 200-1000 and even higher in some cases. Pima cotton is made from lower grade level fibers but is still soft and considered of good quality. The higher the thread counts, the softer and more comfortable your sheets and pillowcase will be. Same goes for your duvet cover. Choose high quality materials and invest in a bedding that will have you sleeping like a baby at night.
Easy to Clean & Store
Most cotton duvet covers are super easy to clean and are often machine washable. Unlike their polyester blended or other synthetic made counterparts you do not have to worry about expensive dry cleaning bills every time you want to clean your duvet cover. Simply pop it into the washer and you are good to go. Cleaning your bedding shouldn’t be a huge chore every week and having high quality cotton bedding can save you money in the long run since you won’t have to be shelling out money for their care and maintenance. If you are changing out your duvet covers seasonally cotton also stores easily as the fabric breathes thus reducing yellowing and the harboring of dust and allergens.
To a relaxing night!
