Last night, a group of us was sitting around the table having dinner, and the topic of conversation turned to the bedroom.
No, it wasn't quite as exciting as you might think.
The talk revolved around the topic of couples sleeping in separate bedrooms. As it turned out, among our group of six, it seemed that everyone in the group had either spent, or had parents or close friends who spent, significant amounts of time sleeping separately.
One friend even shared that, when his parents built their new house when he was growing up, they made sure to have a guest bedroom because they knew one of them would be spending a fair amount of time there (they've been married for forty-ish years, so apparently their plan seems to have worked).
The reasons for the phenomenon vary, but often seem to come down to two issues: snoring or temperature. I have to admit that it seems that, at least a few times a week, my husband Mike finds himself padding down the hall to the guest room in the middle of the night for his last couple of hours of sleep.
The snoring "thing" does sometimes come into play (that would be him, not me!)...however, as often as not, he says he's just too hot and wants to go into the guest room and crank up the fan. I, on the other hand, am prone to sleeping in sweats and socks, under three layers of covers, and can't stand to have wind blowing on me at night.
Well, I don't have a miracle cure for the snoring (and if YOU do, please let me know). However, I was pretty thrilled this week to learn about a recent introduction from one of our fellow New England companies, Cuddledown of Maine.
As discussed above, not many people get married or move in together with the goal of sleeping in separate rooms. The good folks at Cuddledown have felt our pain and introduced the amazing "Dual Warmth Comforter!"
You can finally end the battle of the covers with this fabulous item, as it's actually two comforters in one: choose a separate warmth level for each side, from a light weight "Summer" level, to a warmer "Level 1," to a cozy "Level 2." The comforter is seamlessly created for comfort and appearance, with no annoying buttons or velcro attaching the two halves together. This comforter is made using the same construction as Cuddledown's best-selling Primary Down Comforter, which means it's also a great value. Here are a few more wonderful things about it:
- It has super-soft, down-proof, 100% cotton fabric, so you won't find annoying feathers poking through the material.
- It's filled with lofty, 600 Fill Power U.S White White Duck Down, which means you'll feel warm and cozy without the heavy weight of other types of comforters.
- It has has box-stitch construction, so the down is evenly distributed (you won't find all the feathers lumped into one corner), and it has reinforced seams for a longer life.
- The shell is Oeko-Tex® certified to be free of all harmful substances.
- And, it's handcrafted in Maine by a terrific local business.
The comforter is available in Queen and King sizes and starts at just $299.
