You may be wondering, what does this really mean? It’s doesn’t have to be as overwhelming as you think. Depending on your budget, customizing your bed can refer to something as simple as choosing an embroidery in the style & colour of your choice or as personalized as creating a duvet cover or mattress from scratch. Regardless of the depth of customization you are looking for, one thing is for sure - never before has demand for product, made with integrity & personalized to your unique style & need, been so intense.
Whether your bed is messy or neat, a common area for children & pets, or your own personal retreat - you deserve perfection!
There is more value to custom than aesthetics. For instance, there is no frustration
like that of a fitted sheet that does not stay on the mattress. A small alteration, or better yet a little pre-order consideration, can make a world of difference in the fit of your sheet and even the quality of your sleep. Same goes for adding ties to the corners of your duvet & duvet cover, keeping it securely in place no matter how much you toss & turn. Also take into consideration whether or not you have small children or pets in the house, or if you plan to consume food & drink in bed - a high quality mattress pad protector that fits just right and some inexpensive but truly indestructible blankets or throws can extend the life of your bed & linens.
Nothing is as personalized as your individual comfort levels. In regards to sheets, a simple choice between Percale cotton and Sateen cotton (both are 100% cotton, they are simply woven & finished differently) can help you get the feel you are partial to. Percale offers a cool, crisp feel - if you are always flipping over your pillow, looking for a cool spot, this is the sheeting for you. Sateen gives a silky soft sensation, creating warmth - if you want a cozy bed, sateen is what you are looking for. You can also customize your pillows and duvets. Choose between ratios of down & feather, to create a pillow that offers the support you need and the lofty, cushy feel you want. Select a lower fill if you sleep on your stomach or a higher fill if you sleep on your side. Choose a duvet that has a high loft (fill & pouf power) for a cozy feel. Differing levels of fill result in different levels of warmth. A good down product can last decades and is definitely a worthwhile investment.COLOUR & STYLE
The most fun part of custom beds and bed sets is the wide offering of colours, fabrics & designs. Many make-to-order brands offer you the choice of building your own sheets or duvet covers. Choose the fabric you prefer (cotton - percale or sateen, linen, etc.) in the style that you like (contrasting cuffs, embroideries, hemstitch, appliqués, etc.) in the colours of your choice. Same goes for coverlets, pick the fabric, the colour and even the quilting pattern. Create shams or duvet covers from scratch to tie in your favourite fabrics.
