Quality sleep is vital for overall health, but sleep deprivation is becoming more common. Seven out of ten adults in the latest global Philips Global Sleep Survey report one or more new sleep challenges since the beginning of the pandemic, with less than a third (32%) feeling well-rested most mornings.
With May marking Better Sleep Month, people are reminded to consider how well their sleep environment supports a good night’s sleep. More people today appreciate that bedding is an important part of healthy sleep habits, and more are recognizing the benefits of premium high-performance bedding.
What factors influence the performance of bed linens?
Sheets, pillowcases and duvet covers that are soft to the touch enhance a feeling of comfort and luxury. When they are made of fabrics that breathe well, like cotton, they can help prevent overheating.
Long-lasting color is always vital. Classic clean white bedding that won’t yellow with age is always in style. There is also a trend towards relaxing natural earthy colors, such as terracotta, olive green and mustard yellow, and neutrals like grey, sand or beige with a pop of color. Whatever the color palette, bedding should be able to withstand frequent washing in hot water to remove allergens, such as dust mites, without fading or pilling.
Consumer convenience is also a priority amid today’s busy lifestyles. People favor bed linens that are crisp and fresh out of the washing machine – with no ironing required – and that stay fresh smelling for longer.
Furthermore, the modern consumer wants this daily luxury to be safe and eco-friendly.
