Guiding your way to quality bedding.
BedWinner’s story has its roots in ignorance. It doesn’t sound glamorous and that’s because it’s not a glamorous start. But it’s honest. Having realized how little my friends knew about bedding, I felt compelled to do something. This is not to say that I knew more. Absolutely not. I was in the same boat with the rest of bedding-novices. But I made the decision to dive into the sea of sheets and duvet covers and bed quilts. I’m still swimming and discovering but what I have learned, I want to share.
More than anything, BedWinner is here to help you find what bedding works best for you. It doesn’t have to be the same thing that works for your mother, your best friend, your neighbor, or even Ryan Reynolds. Your home is unlike any other. And your needs are different from others’ needs. That’s what BedWinner aims to cater to.
What you’ll find here is an overview of different materials, their benefits and shortcomings. You’ll learn about thread count and what to consider when buying bamboo sheets. I have also piled together the best quality bedding products available on Amazon. While also keeping an eye on the price tag, to be sure that it wouldn’t leave you with empty pockets.
BedWinner is also an Amazon Affiliate and you can see the disclosure at the bottom of each page. What this means is that if you buy something from this site, a small commission comes my way. Don’t worry, this doesn’t stock up the price for you. And it doesn’t affect my honesty when writing. I will not praise something that I do not consider worthy of praise. Of course I will be happy if you decide to buy a quality linen sheet or a beautiful Christmas bed quilt through BedWinner. But more than that, I want you to be mindful of what is out there. To know what is good for your body, good for your mind, and what will ultimately help you get a wholesome and refreshing sleep.
About The Author
My interest in bedding is not random. It comes from my own struggle with insomnia. I decided to tackle this sleep disorder more seriously a few years back. Up until then, I had been struggling for about 8 years and my sleeplessness had already had a wide range of negative effects on my life.
It sometimes astonishes me how little attention is paid to sleep and its benefits. I sincerely believe that sleep is the foundation of our well-being, be it mental or physical. Daylight savings time illustrates this well. Anyone living in the northern hemisphere comes in contact with this twice a year. In spring the clock is set forward one hour. As a result, we get 1 hour less sleep. And as a more tragic result, the upcoming Monday there is a 24% spike in heart attacks. Come fall, the clock is returned to standard time and we enjoy one extra hour of that sweet slumber. The result of this is a 21% drop of heart attacks the following day. One hour doesn’t seem much but for some it is a matter of life and death.
To combat my own sleepless nights, I learnt more about sleep and also started thinking about the surroundings. Like the temperature in the room, the amount of light, the sounds, and also the beds that we’re sleeping on. While some of these were easy to understand, I realized that I knew absolutely nothing about bedding. The bedding I used was something my parents gifted me years ago. They were good quality, because I never had any trouble with them. And that’s also why I never bothered to dig deeper.
But I’m glad I started digging. It’s made me become aware of pitfalls to avoid and what is the good stuff to keep an eye out for. Hopefully, you can take some of that knowledge with you and find what works best for you.
