Don’t you love when I write a blog post totally randomly that I have been meaning to write for a full year? That is what we are looking at today, people! For the past 3 or so years I have had Beddys Bedding in Jack’s room, then in the boys shared room, and it is something I get questions about frequently, so I wanted to weigh in and give a little review of the bedding, plus share a super generous Beddys Bedding discount code with you all!

Beddys Bedding Discount code & Review
Like I stated above – I have now owned a total of 4 Beddys Bedding sets, over the past 3 or so years. I have had them on bunk beds in Jack’s room (I know…for some reason I thought I could leave a room alone for years, and that someday that would be fun. Jokes on me…I change rooms and add kids yearly!) I also have them on single beds in a share room for the boys now, so feel like I have truly give them a good try in several spaces and manners so I can give an honest and thorough review.
I will go into the review below, but also wanted to give you a discount code incase you fall in love before the post is over – Beddys was gracious enough to offer you all 20% off if you use the code ARINSOLANGE at checkout!!
Why We Tried It
Like I said before – we originally decided to try out Beddys bedding for Jack’s room with bunk beds. The idea of making a bunk bed made me cringe, so I wanted to see if Beddys was worth the hype.
I had seen so many bloggers share about it, but you just never know…is it being shared because they love it, or because they love the owners, or because its free? (I know that might not be the popular thing to say, but sometimes it is reality!)
I also loved that due to how the bedding is made and the over-all structure of it there wasn’t any over hang. Jack’s bunk beds had the bottom bunk on the floor and I didn’t want to deal with extra fabric hanging on the floor all the time.
It was a really logical choice for that space – so I set out to give it a try and really decide if I loved them, or if they were overrated….below is my review
My Overall Thoughts
First off I think I need to preface a few things and give sort of my over all thoughts before I dive into more about the bedding. We obviously liked it enough to get it again when we moved the boys into beds of their own that weren’t bunk beds, so clearly they are a win for me. There are only a couple of draw backs, but I want to share that side too so you know what you’re spending your money on.
As stated as a reason I wanted to try them, the LACK of fabric is amazing. Especially for kids. That is probably my number one love when it comes to beddys bedding. If you like things to look clean and tidy then this is perfect.
Because of how it’s made you don’t tuck anything in at the end of the bed, so that lack of fabric, as well as the fact that the comforter isn’t falling off on both sides, and there is no sheet is a huge win for me!
But fabric is also where my 2 negatives come in. In Jack’s room we went with the black buffalo check and the dash for the bunk beds. When we washed them the black bled onto the white SLIGHTLY. I am a perfectionist and it wasn’t enough for me to really be bothered, but it did happen.
I don’t know if we washed them wrong (I want to say that the first wash, luck would have it, was due to a middle of the night throw up), or if a color catcher would have caught it, but none the less, it did happen.
I also wish there were just MORE fabric choices. I initially almost didn’t go with Beddys for the boys shared room simply because I have seen the fabrics in use so many times that I wanted something a bit more unique. So that would be a downside for me. That said as a blogger I am accustomed to seeing more of those brands with friends than most people.
I also think it’s worth noting that I DID end up using Beddys again…so clearly the Pro’s out weighted even for me…and I am pretty big on going unique.
Making the Bed
First off – you are buying this because of how easy it is to make the bed. And it is EASY. It is a great option for younger kids you are teaching to make their own beds, and we will likely get this for Avé so she can work on making her own bed too. So if for no other reason than that I will say they are WORTH IT.
That said – something that I didn’t think about, that is LIKELY A NO BRAINER, but for me got me frustrated was that it is still a pain in the butt to make the bed after washing – especially if its a bunk bed. I was hoping this would be some sort of cure all on that, but the reality is you still have to put on a fitted sheet essentially, and on bunk beds that still sucks haha.
Why We Love It
The biggest reason I went with Beddy’s a second time around was for the clean and simple look it provides in a room. I am pretty minimalist with decor, so I love that even when the beds aren’t made there isn’t extra fabric at the end of the bed coming un-tucked, and hanging off the sides.
I was also really impressed with the quality – especially concerning the zipper. When we first ordered I honestly had my doubts that a zipper could withstand Jack. I was worried he would break the zipper and I would be ticked, but they are really well made and industrial zippers, so that hasn’t been an issue.
We personally have done the minky lined ones each time, and the boys LOVE how they feel. I like that they can use the comforter with the comfort of a blanket instead of needing that extra layer.
Overall – I would HIGHLY recommend Beddys bedding especially if you are decorating a Childs room and looking for a way to make their room clean and help teach them to make their bed.
