When it comes to taking care of our homes, spring is the time of year that many of us actually look forward to cleaning our home and then freshening the decor to greet the warmer months of the year.
This spring, I started the seasonal ritual in my bedroom. After a thorough room cleaning, when I placed my previous spring/summer bedding that was going on 6 years on the bed, it looked worn and faded. After years of use and many washings, it was time to go in search of new blue and white bedding.
Bedsure Softness Floral Quilt Set – Vibrant Spring Color
Bedsure Bamboo Cooling Sheets Set – Cool & Dry All Night
Bedsure Bamboo Pillowcase – Silk Soft & Makes a Nice Gift
Bedsure Waffle Weave Duvet Cover – Soft and Elegant
Bedsure 100% Cotton Blanket Waffle Weave – Soft, Breathable & Stylish
I still wanted a blue and white bedding to stay with the bedroom’s color scheme and kept my pom-pom bed skirt in place.
After an online search, I found the perfect one on Bedsure. It is a Microfiber Quilted Blue & White Floral Bedspread Coverlet with matching pillow shams in the color Daisy.
It was exactly the look I was envisioning to go in the room for the warmer months of the year. The bedspread is:
- Extremely comfortable to the touch.
- Well-made with beautiful quilted detailing and texture.
- Reversible and just the right weight for spring and summer.
I was so excited to find a bedspread that met all my criteria and best of all, it was affordable.
Bedsure also offers a variety of luxury sheet options in different fabrics and colors, including cooling bamboo sheets that are:
- Soft & Breathable
- Naturally hypoallergenic and resistant to dust mites
In my quest to use more sustainable and eco-friendly options in my home, I decided to get the bamboo sheets in the color white. Bamboo is an ideal choice for those who sleep hot (like my husband) or who simply want a comfy and healthy sleep every night.
What I found after sleeping and washing my new bedding is that expensive bedding doesn’t always mean better quality! Less expensive brands, like Bedsure can be just as good or even better then their more expensive counterparts.
Bed Sheet Washing Tips
To keep bed sheets soft, smooth and long-lasting:
- Wash in cold.
- Do not use chlorine bleach.
- Do not dry the sheets on a high setting. Use a low to medium setting and don’t over dry them.
Added Layers of Bedding for Extra Comfort & Style
I like to add layers of bedding on a bed in the form of a cushy comforter, covered in a soft cotton duvet, a blanket and a bedspread in the spring and summer. Having multiple goes beyond simply making the bed look inviting.
Having layers of different weights of soft bedding maximizes the comfort factor that you can snuggle into when reading, watching a movie, or taking a nap in the bed when the A/C is on.
It is easy to remove a layer on a hot night, or use it on a chilly night.
The sky blue textured waffle weave cotton Bedsure blanket matches my bedroom perfectly! It’s skin-friendly and the breathable qualities of the woven material make it a great additional layer to add to a bed.
Extras: Sham Covered Bed Pillows
Matching or coordinating pillow shams are for more than just adding decorative interest. When you have a few extras, they come in handy to prop yourself up to be comfy-cozy while reading in bed.
I couldn’t decide which pillow shams I liked better, the shams that came with the duvet or the quilted ones that came with the floral bedspread.
Since I no longer use throw pillows on my bed, I decided I had the room to use both the quilted floral shams and the waffle weave. I like seeing the mix of pattern and texture.
I change my pillowcase every few days and really like the soft and smooth bamboo fiber pillowcase that came with my sheet set. I ordered a separate set of the bamboo fiber pillowcases so I always have a fresh and clean one on hand.
Even though the color scheme in my bedroom stayed the same, the new Bedsure bedding makes not only the bed feel fresh & new, but the whole room is lighter & brighter now… and a whole lot cleaner. :-) Just the way spring should look and feel!
