It’s likely that you put a lot of time and thought into purchasing your mattress. You probably went to a few stores, looked online, and talked to some friends before deciding which mattress you wanted to spend your nights lying on for the next several years. This is common. Most of us put a lot of effort into picking the right mattress because we want to make sure we feel as comfortable as possible while we sleep. But while we put so much focus and research into finding the right mattress, most of us only spend a fraction of that time picking out bedding. We might pick a particular comforter because it fits in well with the bedroom’s décor, or we might choose a sheet set based on price alone. When we do this, we deprive ourselves of enjoying the full comfort potential of our sleep sets.
A friend of mine owns and operates a bed and breakfast in Vermont. It’s a real quaint and cozy place. I remember him telling me once about a few couples who complained about the comfort of the mattress in their room. He couldn’t believe it because he had spent a lot of money on that mattress, but when I asked him about the bedding he chose, it all made sense. He bought bargain sheets that were gritty and uncomfortable. No wonder his guests complained! I told him to find higher quality bedding, like a set of Stearns & Foster sheets, so that his guests could experience the full comfort of the mattresses he spent so much time and money on. He told me that he’s seen a marked improvement in satisfaction since he replaced his sheets, and that his guests frequently comment on their comfort. If you ask me, that’s a perfect example of the power of comfortable bedding. Sometimes, a little bit of money goes a long way!
