A big bed requires big bedding. Big bedding can require a big cash outlay. That’s why it’s so important to handle bedding selection for your king size mattress the right way. It makes more sense to find the right gear from the beginning than it does to spend a small fortune on bedding!
One of the smartest moves you can make is to look at king comforter sets. These “beds in a bag” usually include everything you need in one ultra-handy bundle. You’ll get a comforter, a set of sheets, pillowcases, pillow shams and even a dust ruffle for the box spring. All of the pieces will be properly coordinated in terms of color and pattern.
If you don’t relish the idea of spending an afternoon assembling a “look” in the aisles of a linen store, king comforter sets are a godsend. You can rely on the manufacturer’s trained designers to put everything together in the right way.
That doesn’t mean you’ll want to reach for the first of the king comforter sets you spot, though. There are a few things to consider when choosing between the several available options.
Price. The price of king comforter sets can vary wildly. It’s possible to spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars on a bundle. It’s also possible to find complete sets of bedding at prices that rival what you’d see at a garage sale or in a second-hand store. Price and quality are often related, but that’s not always the case. A smart shopper can find king comforter sets at bargain basement prices. Hit the white sales and keep your eyes open. Don’t be afraid to do a little comparison-shopping.
Quality. Do you really want scratchy sheets or a sandpaper thin comforter? Of course not. You don’t want to spend one-third of your life itching and shivering! Quality matters. Look at thread counts. Feel the bedding if you can. You need to find something that you’ll look forward to using when it’s time for bed.
Appearance. Your bed is the biggest part of your bedroom. The way it looks will control the overall feel of the room. Unless you really don’t care what your house looks like (and some people really are all about practicality over aesthetics), you’ll want to look for a pattern and colors that complement the rest of the room and that you personally find appealing. Luckily, king comforter sets are available in a wide range of looks. If you’re willing to put in a little effort, you will be able to find something that really looks good to you.
No matter what kind of bedding your purchase for your king size bed, you will be spending some money. If you buy something you don’t like, you’ll be back at the store spending money again. That’s why it pays to make smart decisions right off the bat. We strongly recommend king comforter sets, but recommend that you really think about price, quality and appearance before making a purchase. You will be glad you did.
