Buying The Right Comforter For Your BedWritten by Duane Jones
Putting right comforter on your bed can make whole bedroom look fabulous. Comforters are most visible of all bedding pieces, so when you change comforter you make a large change in decor of bedroom itself. But comforters are also very functional as they make for a very warm, and soft bed to sleep in too. But getting right comforter for your bed takes some thought and preparation, and this article will help you make right decision when you buy.
The first factor in choosing right comforter is to make sure that it actually fits your bed. This may sound like a simple thing, but not all mattresses are same size because of their design. If you have a very standard mattress it will most likely fit into one of conventional categories like "Full", Queen", or "King".
But many mattresses these days are not standard sizes because mattress makers have gone to adding more features like pillow tops on one side or sometimes both sides of mattress. This means that mattress is now much thicker than it would normally be. And that will also affect size of any bedding that you are now able to put on that bed. That's why it's always a good idea to measure your bed and mattress to make sure that you know what size comforter to get beforehand and won't have to be faced with prospect of having to return bedding that you love when you find that it just doesn't look right on your bed.
When considering a comforter look at TPI or threads per inch too. This figure will often give you a good idea of quality level that has been put into that comforter. Generally speaking thread counts above 250 produce a soft and comfortable feel and fabric that will last a long time. Try to avoid thread counts below 200.

So it makes sense that you would want to make your bed comfortable and a pleasure to be in. It also is a nice bonus if bedding you choose enhances overall decor of your home and is pleasing to eye.
Bed sheets are an important part of overall bedding items used on a bed, and here are a few guidelines for choosing high quality bed sheets that you will be happy with:
Size is a very important factor in choosing bed sheets. It used to be that most mattresses were pretty standard sizes and so you could buy sheets in genralized categories like "Full", "Queen", and "King", and be reasonably sure that they would fit right out of box. But lately, mattress manufacturers have gone to adding more features to their mattresses to make them appeal to a wider range of customers, like adding pillow tops on one side or even both sides of mattress. This added material makes mattress much wider and therefore any bed sheets that are used on that bed will need to be bigger as well in order to fit properly. That's why it's a good idea to actually measure your bed in advance and make sure that sheets will fit your particular mattress before buying them. You may have to buy one category larger or more to fit your bed.
