Over the course of your life, you’ll spend about a third of your time in bed, so it’s worthwhile to maximize your comfort and relaxation. Don’t worry — you don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort. You can refresh your bedding to match your personal aesthetic, while still getting better sleep.
In this guide, we’ll answer questions like:

The Top of Bed refers to the most visible style element: your bed covering. This element is often the statement piece that sets the aesthetic of the room and also plays a key role in your sleeping temperature preference.
It can be confusing to decide which type of bed covering is best for you and your space. Below we compare the three main types:
Comforters are available in a wide range of colors and patterns to suit any style or preference. If you’re on a budget, a comforter set with matching shams is a great choice.
When you think of a quilt, you may think of the traditional handcrafted patchwork blanket. Today, a quilt can also refer to a lightweight bed covering consisting of a cotton or cotton blend fabric with a thin inner filling called batting. A quilt alone is perfect for summer, or can add an extra layer of warmth in winter.
Quilts are more intricately stitched, with the colors and patterns usually dyed into the fabric, rather than the traditional method of fabric pieces sewn together.
Commonly referred to simply as a “duvet”, this option is a fabric envelope that encases a down or down alternative comforter or duvet insert and is enclosed by buttons, ties or a zipper. The duvet cover protects the comforter inside, and is also easy to wash or change out from season to season.
A duvet cover alone is extremely light weight, akin to a sheet, so the warmth is determined by the type of comforter used inside the decorative cover.
Duvet Covers are available in a variety of colors and styles from minimalist, hotel chic to ornate and glamourous. Duvet sets, including matching covers and shams, are also available. Don’t forget to select a comforter or duvet insert to go inside your duvet cover.
Your sheets can coordinate with your bedding, but they can also affect comfort. There are 3 main factors that impact sheet softness and sleeping temperature.
Cotton is the main fiber used, either alone or in a blend. Cotton provides a cool, soft feel and is very breathable. If you see the label Supima®, it refers to “long staple cotton” which increases softness and durability with a luxurious feel. Cotton Flannel is a thicker, brushed cotton perfect for colder climates or those who like to sleep warmly. Blends and synthetic materials, such as Polyester, Tencel® and Microfiber, increase durability and wrinkle resistance, but can be warmer and less breathable.
Percale refers to a grid-like weave and results in a lightweight, crisp sheet. Sateen refers to a more shiny weave resulting in a silky, luxurious feel. Jersey refers to a soft, knitted weave that feels like a t-shirt and provides some stretch.
The thread count affects the overall weight and strength of your sheets. A higher thread count indicates greater density of the material. The greater the density, the more overall strength your sheets will have.

To layer in extra style and depth to your bedding and décor, consider adding a throw or blanket at the foot of the bed and a decorative pillow (or two).
When considering comfort-oriented bedding basics, you’ll want to consider the top features you prefer, as well as your budget. With so many different options, it can be overwhelming and often expensive. Luckily, Stein Mart offers a number of affordable, high-quality options to meet your needs. Let’s determine which features are right for you.
Depending on your preferred sleeping position, there are certain features to look for when selecting a pillow to ensure optimal comfort.
A Firm Density Pillow will cradle the back of your neck, spine and shoulders to ensure enough support while you sleep.
An Extra Firm Density Pillow is needed for side sleepers to ensure the head and neck get enough support to keep the spine aligned while sleeping.
A Soft/Medium Density Pillow is ideal for proper neck and head support while keeping your spine aligned. Look for a thinner pillow for optimal comfort.

This type of comforter is the most luxurious and cozy. It is often used as a duvet insert within a duvet cover, enabling you to personalize your combination of comfort and style. Determining your choice of fill is often based on budget, warmth, care-level and allergies (if any).
Down refers to the fine material beneath the feather layer on ducks and geese, and yields a comforter far lighter in weight than a down alternative comforter of similar thickness. Air is trapped within the down, providing warmth while remaining very breathable.
This type of comforter is a synthetic fiber blend, and a great solution for those with allergies to down or those that prefer a machine washable comforter. Typically synthetic is more affordable, but can be bulkier than a down fill.

Mattress pads and toppers are an affordable way to help extend the life and comfort of your existing mattress.
Mattress Pads are similar to a fitted sheet with a light amount of extra padding. This adds a bit of cushion without the bulk of a foam topper. There are some mattress pads available with waterproofing to add extra protection for your mattress.
Mattress Toppers are a thick layer of cushion that sits on top of the mattress and adds extra support. It comes in a variety of fills, such as foam, heat wicking gel and down.
