If you’re looking for designer bedding ensembles, then you have obviously realized that the best bedding ensembles are often produced by designers and top brands. You pay more but then you receive more in terms of quality. If you are looking for the best bedding that you can buy, try European designer bedding where some of the great Belgian and French brands such as Yves Delorme, Descamps and Jardin Secret offer a wonderful section of designer coordinated bedding to choose from. Other brands well worth looking at are Missoni, Conran and Orla Kiely.
Of course, you don’t want to pay just for the designer name. You need to know that what you are buying is top quality too especially as great bedding can make all the difference in terms of getting a good night’s rest.
Bedding ensembles come in a wide range of prices from those which suit the most limited budget to the top end designer bed linens you are considering.
As with most purchases you get what you pay for to a certain extent with the designer bedding sets generally being made with better fabric, better trimmings and better finish. However if you are careful you might very well find a good quality bedding ensemble within the cheaper brands. It is good to be able to seek out quality in any case as the difference between poor quality and acceptable quality may not always be immediately apparent. So what makes a bedding ensemble top quality? Here is a guide to what to look for when buying a bedding ensemble whether a brand name designer bedding set or a good quality department store purchase.
1. Feel the Difference
Do not buy a bedding ensemble by an unknown manufacturer without feeling the fabric. This can tell you so much. You need to determine how smooth the fabric is (rough means poor quality unless the bedding is meant to have a texture) and how substantial it feels. Some poor quality fabrics have starch added to make them seem thicker. But if you feel a good quality substantial fabric and then one which has been stiffened with starch you should be able to tell the difference. Designer bedding brands, of course, have a reputation to uphold so you are more likely to receive great quality without having to touch the product before purchase. It is safer to buy brand name bedding online than to buy bedding without a brand.
If you have found a bedding set that you love but you have never heard of the manufacturer check out the thread count – if it is high then you should be OK to purchase especially if the website has a good refund and returns policy.
2. See the Difference
A poor quality bedding ensemble may look as good as an expensive one on the surface. The designs are often first class and up to the minute. However you should be able to tell the difference in the depth of color of the dyes used on the fabric. The finish on a less expensive ensemble will often make the difference too. Expensive duvet covers, for example, often have pipe or double seams for strength and they are fastened with proper buttons and buttonholes rather than cheaper press studs or poppers. Trimming too will often be far superior on a high end ensemble as you will often have embroidery, pleating, beading or other expensive details.
There is usually something in the designer bedding ensembles that sets them apart from more common or garden bedding – you will know it when you come across that special element as your eye will be drawn to the detail that counts whether that is the smoothness of the fabric, intricate pleating or delicate cut work embroidery.
