Add a mattress pad to make your bed cozy and comfortable

Beds are meant to be a refuge, and when you want to be cozy, comfortable, and get a great night’s sleep, a mattress pad is a must-have.

What is a mattress pad?

A mattress pad covers your entire mattress in a thick, quilted material. It’s the first layer of your bedding, fits snugly over every type of mattress using a fitted skirt, and can protect your mattress from wear and tear.

There are a lot of benefits of having a mattress pad, but the primary reason people want one on their beds is to increase the comfort of their mattress. If you find your bed uncomfortable but you’re not ready to buy a new mattress, a mattress pad may help because they add cushion to your mattress. If you choose a mattress pad designed to reduce allergens, your pad may also help decrease your reaction to allergens when sleeping.

What is the difference between a mattress pad vs mattress cover vs mattress topper?

Mattress pads and mattress toppers are designed for comfort. A mattress pad adds a thick quilt to your mattress using a fitted skirt that’s similar to the fitted sheet of your bedsheets. A mattress topper is a thick pad that sits on top of your mattress or mattress pad and adds a thick foam or fibre fill layer to your bed.

Rather than adding comfort, a mattress cover is designed to protect your mattress. They are made from waterproof materials like vinyl, wipe or wash clean easily, and will protect your mattress from stains.

When choosing a mattress pad, mattress topper, or a mattress cover, you’ll need to decide whether you’re looking for mattress protection or mattress comfort. A mattress cover is strictly for protection, while a mattress pad will offer some protection but is mostly designed for comfort. A mattress topper like a foam mattress topper will be strictly for comfort.

What is a pillow protector?

A pillow protector is a removable cover for your pillow. It’s designed to protect against allergens, dust mites, and stains, and a pillow protector will extend the life of your down or feather filled pillows because they keep them cleaner.

Why would I need a pillow protector?

In addition to using a pillowcase to cover your pillow, pillow protectors protect your pillow and keep it clean and sanitary for the long-term. If you’ve invested a lot of money in a fibre, down, or feather filled pillow, having both a pillow protector and a pillow case is important to increasing its life span.

Pillow protectors have a zipper enclosure, so you can pull them off and wash them anytime.
