On average we spent approximately one third of our entire lives sleeping!
This is not as bad as it sounds as we off course need to sleep to gain rest and thus feel rejuvenated. Therefore it is also quite important and some would argue totally necessary to make our sleeping environment conductive to help aid good rest.
There are many ways that we can achieve this, such as by decorating our bedrooms, adopting feng shui, buying a new bed or mattress and also replacing the linen we actually sleep in. This last item is how the inspiration for this site came from. As I though it would be a good idea to concentrate providing information on cheap rollaway bed ideas.
What is a Bed in a Bag?
So firstly, what is actually a ‘bed in a bag?’. Well the idea behind the bed in a bag refers to a set of bedding that encompasses the necessary paraphernalia to make up a bed for any size. This bedding will off course also be available in different sizes to match the various size of beds on the market, such as single, double, and king size beds. As it is also quite common nowadays for a bed in a bag to be given as a wedding or house warming present there is actually a very wide range of products to choose from. The idea being that this is a very convenient way of getting a matching bed set without having to go to the trouble of looking for coordinated bedding.
Today there are many different types of designs available that encompass a big price range to suit any budget. For example you can pick up a bed in a bag for £30 from Amazon to £150. The type of design and quality of the material will vary off course. At the very top end you would expect the linen to be made of a material such as silk. As you will discover by reviewing this site further, by carrying out a little bit of research there are some really fantastic designs that can be picked up for a rather moderate price tag.
Tips for buying the best bed in a bag
The first tip I would give anyone would be to find out the types of material that you would feel most comfortable sleeping in. There is no need to stick with cotton or polyester bed covers so why not consider a leather or suede replica set? Either way, which everyone you choose you should also be mindful of the cleaning that needs to take place. Obviously a cotton or polyester set can simply be added to your standard laundry routine whereas a more expensive set might also require specific washing requirements that may require the use of a dry cleaning service.
Nowadays as bed in a bags are also offered as wedding presents or house warming gifts, shrewd manufactures have spotted this trend and also offer a range of practical and decorative products, such as curtains, valances and tie backs. It goes without saying that when you actually see such a decorated bed the impression you get on first viewing is quite impressive to say the least. This was actually also included as a tip on a house selling program, as it added a further level of attention to detail and luxury that has proven on occasions to help sell or rent a house more quickly without the expense of a professional decorator.
Until recently I had actually always purchased such merchandise from a high street retailing however there are many reputable on line stores that can provide exactly the same products that on occasions are also much more cheaper.
Buying bunk beds with stairs online today is actually very safe and secure. Before buying a bed in a bag it would be useful if you could consider the types of designs or themes that may appeal to you. When choosing a design I would not really worry too much about price as in my experience working in this industry, you can on most occasions find your perfect design within your price range.
For example carrying out a quick search on the every popular Amazon website ( a hub for a large range of sellers of every conceivable item ), I found a rather attractive replica suede and satin bed in a bad set. I personally do like these types of sets as they offer an air of luxury and feel out of the norm and are designed to offer very good comfort. You cannot honestly beat the feeling of lying on a satin duvet set and as man made processing is of a very good standard you would be hard pushed to tell the difference between this and a real satin bed set. The other advantage is they do not really any special washing requirements.
Looking at the above set the supplier appears to be offering it at a rather big discount which is actually not uncommon when buying online due to what I expect are very low operation costs. However one
word of caution when buying from these types of sites. Please do make sure you check out the sellers credentials. The above sets would be ideal for anyone looking to add an air of professionalism and luxury in their bedroom.
Another quick search on the same site found this rather neat looking children’s bed in a bag set. As previously advised the market for children’s bed room sets is actually increasing at a very rapid rate. When advising clients I am always surprised by the range available for young children. I can assure you it is well worth paying ex
tra for children’s sets as they tend to offer a kind ofpersonal touch that us adults find it hard to attain when buying such items. Although the set mentioned does appear to offer good value I have choose to only give it a 4 star rating due to the fact children in my experience would much rather prefer a more entertainment theme, such as a popular cartoon character or pop idol.
Those of you that would like encourage relaxation in the bedroom should considering more clam and soothing colours like orange and green, as according to Fen Sui, something that I try and incorporate in my designs, such colours really help with you relax. This particular bed set is not really exciting but the aim would be to add an element of tranquility to the bedroom which I think it actually does set out to achieve. You will notice that none of the above actually cost more than $60 to buy. May I assure you that this is more than adequate for the fast majority of bedrooms that I have furnished over the years. Although suppliers will try and advise that these are one time bargains I have been in the industry long enough to know that although the prices are very good, they are actually quite achievable when buying on line so please do not feel pressurised into making that impulse purchase.
Once you have some idea of your design that should ideally also take into account the colour of your room as well as other factors such as a hobby or in any case should make up your personal tastes. Only then, at this stage would I actually start looking at the price from a range of bed in a bags. As you will discover, manufactures know their popular products and so in turn do make an effort to offer these designs for a range of budgets from run of the mill polyester to 900 thread Egyptian pure cotton. Generally speaking the higher the thread count the more softer the fabric should feel.
If you are looking to buy for someone else it would be advisable to stick with some neutral colours, as you will be surprised how particular people are when it comes to bed linen! This is actually quite understandable as not only do you have to sleep in the linen you also have to view the bed covers for quite a large period of your day. From experience lighter shades tend to do better when buying for others, especially blue and beige.
Getting children to bed at times can prove some what difficult nowadays, so why not decorate a room around a bed in a bag design made specially for children? Before you dismiss this as a rather odd sales pitch, let me assure you that there are many designs today that actually sell the concept of a bed in a bag very well to children, in fact more so than to adults. For example you can pick up designs on popular cartoon characters, pop starts, TV shows, games to name a few. As a bed generally is the largest single item in a child’s room second to a wardrobe, having a design that is completed by the walls within a child’s room can have a striking effect.
How important is it to impress visitors to your house or flat? Well apart from a nice attractive dinner why not kit out your spare bedroom in a silk bed in a bad with a down comforter? The end impression to your guests would surely be that of appreciation.
You will also find that the type of designs and quality is actually also directly linked to the region that the theme originates from. For example Indian designs generally are made from the finest quality silks as would be expected from that region of the world whereas Italian sets tend to be made from quality French or Italian linen.
