If you’re looking to turn your bedroom into a sleep sanctuary, new bedding (or a weighted blanket) is a great place to start. After all, you spend almost a third of your life between the sheets, so investing in linens that meet both your style and comfort needs is a no-brainer.
To get some insights into what makes for a good night's rest, we consulted Rebecca Robbins, the author of "Sleep for Success! Everything You Must Know About Sleep but Are Too Tired to Ask."
"When it comes to bedding, invest in the best sheets you can afford," she tells us. "With regard to fabric, opt for a high-quality option that will stand the test of machine washing. Try a few options and choose whichever is cozy, soothing and relaxing to you."
It's also important to get a good feel of the fabric, if possible. "You want to find something that is soothing to the touch," she says. "Something that helps you relax so that when you slip between the sheets, you are at ease and ready for sleep."
So whether you want your bedroom to feel like a luxury five-star hotel suite or a calming bohemian oasis, Shop TODAY rounded up some of the top online retailers where you can find the best bedding sets, duvet covers, bedspreads and more on a budget. Happy hunting!
