There are all kinds of advertisements trying to convince you to buy the latest high-tech gadgets and appliances to make your life easier, and you could probably spend a year watching commercials for luxury cars.
Why then, do so few people talk about luxury bedding? After all, most of us spend 6 to 8 hours a night in bed. That’s a third of our lives! Even if you live in one of the worst cities for traffic in the world, you’re still not spending that much time in your car.
Plus there are a ridiculous number of benefits to sleeping on luxury bedding that go well beyond impressing your friends with high thread counts and great-looking décor, and all kinds of options to choose from.
Here are just a few of the best reasons why you should consider getting luxury bedding for your home.
Your bed can be your sanctuary. There’s a reason why so many people feel like they sleep better at five-star hotels – they choose only the highest-quality linens and mattresses, made from the softest fibers. When you are swaddled in comfort, it allows your mind to shut down and your body to melt into relaxation while you sleep. That way, when you wake up the next morning, you’ll feel utterly rested and completely energized.
And while it isn’t the main reason to buy them, it’s true that luxury linens do look better. This is important not for any aesthetic sense, though, but because when our minds perceive luxury and comfort, that’s what we feel when we climb into bed. In short, seeing is believing.
You get value for your money in the long term. Most people tend to opt for the option that costs them the least up front when given the choice, but that isn’t always the smartest decision. Let’s say that a low-to-mid-range sheet set costs $120, and a set of luxury linens is $240. On its face, it would seem like the cheaper set is a far better deal – you save $120! But what those numbers don’t take into account is the fact that high-quality bed sheets are far more durable. You’ll never have to worry about the threads separating, or the sheets shredding or pilling. You’ll be able to wash your linens with no fear of them being destroyed in the laundry.
And when you look again at the numbers, you’ll realize that those luxury sheets only have to last twice as long as the regular ones to make up their value. Is that possible? Well, some people pass their luxury linens down from generation to generation.
You can help to save the world – and yourself. Some of most luxurious bedding of today goes beyond being comfortable and durable – it allows you to reduce your carbon footprint. That’s because the sheets, pillowcases, and blankets are made from only organic materials. Many even go one step further and use local farms that operate based on sustainable agriculture.
And you can rest easier using these kinds of linens as well, because the flax used to make them doesn’t require the use of any dangerous toxins or chemicals. That means less chance of an allergic reaction or getting sick because of some amazing new compound that was used to treat your linens and only later discovered to be poisonous.
