When it comes to cottage bedding and decor, practical and cozy are the main requirements. Here are some things to look for when choosing your cottage bedding.
All seasons appropriate
A cottage or second home does not get the same use and attention as our permanent living spaces might, which is why versatility is key. Chances are you will be using the space during several different seasons. Not to mention, many cottages can offer less regulated heating and cooling systems. Due to this, it is important to prioritize all-seasons appropriate bedding.
For example, an all seasons appropriate comforter or duvet would be best. Benji's all seasons appropriate comforter, made with gel-fibre, acts as a down alternative which is great at regulating temperatures. It will keep warm sleepers cool and cool sleepers cozy! Opting for materials that can both trap heat when needed and allow airflow to keep things cool is the best option for varying temperatures, indoors and out.
When it comes to cottage decor everyone has their personal style. However, across the board cozy and effortless are often the key contenders. Benji's high-performance microfiber is a super soft, moisture-wicking, and wrinkle-free material that will maintain that hotel ready, freshly washed, look without even having to iron it.
The internets softest sheets are sure to set your cottage up for the ultimate cozy vibe. Check out our bedding bundle options here!
We all know the struggle of getting everything packed into the car. There comes a point where space is a hot commodity. Benji comes perfectly packed in its own cloth bag that makes it easy to travel with!
Making Use of the Top Sheet
Top sheet... you either hate it or love it. In a cottage setting, however, the top sheet should not be overlooked. With short-term stays and visiting guests the dreaded task of washing the bedding in between stays will always come up. To minimize the amount of laundry that needs to be done we recommend the use of a flat sheet which acts as a barrier between the sleeper and the duvet/comforter. Benji's sheet set includes 1 Fitted Sheet, 1 Flat Sheet, and 2 Pillowcases. Click here to shop Sheet Sets!
Dust and other allergens are no strangers to a cottage setting. Hypoallergenic microfiber does not absorb dust or dirt in addition to its moisture-wicking property meaning it won't absorb sweat either. In contrast to traditional cotton which is a highly absorbent material, microfibre is the best option to combat these elements and offer the best night's sleep in irritant-free bedding!
