The Custom Bedding Look

by Ally Evander, Allied Member ASID
We often have clients ask us to help with selecting bedding. There are three options we can offer: retail/ready-made, semi-custom, and custom.
With retail bedding, in most cases we would recomend not buying bedding sets, but mixing and matching. This can make retail/ready-made bedding look more custom and unique. But it's not as easy as it sounds with the limited options available in the retail world.
Try to avoid the infamous "Bed-in-a-Bag":

Semi custom bedding lines offer a variety of sizes, fabrics, and designs that can be purchased in an array of colors. It's much easier to coordinate with the design scheme. Here are some examples of semi-custom bedding offerings....

If you are willing to invest a little more money, custom bedding can create the perfect look. The fabrics and style are limitless! Here are some examples of totally custom bedding....
