There’s no doubt about it that the bedding industry has a lot of components and a variety of products available. There’s a reason why the bedding section in stores is so large and to be honest, it can get a bit overwhelming at times. There are many types of pillows, sheets, and accessories. In addition, they all come in an array of colors, prints, and sizes so where do you begin?! Warm Things wants to help simplify the shopping process for you so we’ve defined all the major components of bedding.
