While the pandemic has Americans cloistered in their homes, the bedroom has become the retreat of choice for many. According to the recent “The Way We Nest” study conducted by Bed Bath & Beyond, 80% of Americans surveyed say their bed is their happy place and 76% view the bedroom as their sanctuary. Even as we begin to re-emerge this Spring, it’s likely our new-found appreciation for our beds will persist. But let’s face it, with so many options available on the market, it can be overwhelming to find the perfect linens for your home—especially if you don’t want to spend a lot of time and money. Is a higher thread count really better? Should you opt for cotton percale or sateen? The answer just got a little easier. Enter Nestwell, a private brand of stylish, cozy and affordable bedding and bath products designed to create oasis spaces in your home–available only at Bed Bath & Beyond beginning March 22. Nestwell offers a range of sheets, pillows, blankets, quilts, comforters, duvets, mattress pads, bath rugs, bath towels and bath accessories.
Nestwell is the first of eight new private brands that Bed Bath & Beyond will launch in 2021 to help customers realize the potential in every room. The new brands will deliver exceptional quality and affordability across various categories, including bedding and bath, kitchen and dining, storage and organization and home décor.
As part of the launch and informed by the “The Way We Nest” study, Bed Bath & Beyond has created the “Nestwell to Rest Well” guide. The guide begins with an online quiz to help you identify your nesting archetype and find products that best suit your sleeping style. It also includes design tips for styling your bed by interior designers at Decorist, as well as advice from renowned sleep wellness expert, Dr. Shelby Harris.
“Nestwell is a solutions-oriented brand that takes the guesswork out of everyday bedding and bath products,” said Joe Hartsig, Executive Vice President and Chief Merchandising Officer at Bed Bath & Beyond. “It provides smart solutions built to withstand the demands of day-to-day use and fit perfectly into the everyday home. Nestwell will include a broad range of bedding and bath products that bring that cozy feeling to our customers’ routines and make beds easy to make and hard to leave. In the spirit of making it easy for our customers, our ‘Nestwell to Rest Well Guide’ is a useful tool to help consumers find their perfect sleep solutions.”
Solutions and solace are two keywords in these pandemic-times. Bed Bath & Beyond’s study went on to reveal that 83% of Americans surveyed feel that changing their bedding style during the pandemic has made them feel happier in their personal environment and 80% reported feeling calmer. Of those who changed their bedding style during the pandemic, 76% surveyed say it helped them sleep better. The new Nestwell brand is an ideal gateway to creating that sumptuous sanctuary at home.
Bed Bath & Beyond knows that sleep styles vary from person to person. Whether you sleep hot and need the breathability of percale sheets, prefer the luxe touch of sateen, like to layer your bed with heaps of blankets and pillows, or keep it simple with minimal layers, Nestwell offers a wide array of options. Easy-to-follow pointers on packages, online and in-store help demystify the process of shopping for linens. Nestwell helps you build a nest perfectly suited to your unique preferences, ultimately leading to a better night’s rest. And sleep wellness is a known contributor to a healthy lifestyle.
“Sleep is important to a healthy lifestyle and creating a bed in which you feel comfortable can help ensure a good night’s rest,” said Dr. Shelby Harris. So whether you’re looking for peaceful nights or pillow forts, Nestwell has you covered.
Similarly, Nestwell’s priced-right line of towels, washcloths, bathmats, shower curtains and more bring soft coziness to the bathroom. Nestwell products are crafted to withstand the demands of daily use–all are made with high-quality, machine-washable fabrics available in modern, soothing colors.
Mother nature gets a nod in the Nestwell line, as well. A number of Nestwell products feature organic and responsibly-sourced materials, including Certified STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX, MADE IN GREEN by OEKO-TEX, GOTs, organic cotton sateen, hemp, recycled polyester and linen/cotton blend fabrics.
- The Pure Earth organic sheet is made with 100% organic cotton using EarthColors® dyes made from agricultural waste such as almond shells;
- The Recycled Polyester Bath Rug is made from recycled PET polyester.
Nestwel is also wallet-friendly, with prices ranging from $6 for washcloths, $10 for towels and $25 to $120 for sheets and sheet sets, making the brand widely accessible.
Nestwell to Rest Well Guide and “The Way We Nest” Study
Bed Bath & Beyond knows comfort goes beyond matching your bedding to the color of your walls; for us, it’s all about sleep-happy fabrics that provide everyday comfort. As many people struggle to find bedding that best suits their needs, we launched “The Way We Nest” study to better understand American’s current nesting habits at home. What we learned is that 71% of Americans surveyed say climbing into bed is their favorite part of their day. Other findings include:
- 79% of Americans surveyed agree it’s more satisfying to crawl into a made bed than an unmade bed
- 58% of Americans surveyed report making their bed everyday
- Half (50%) of daily bed-makers surveyed describe themselves as productive, compared to a quarter (24%) of people who rarely/never make their bed
“Everybody sleeps differently, so creating your perfect nest can be a very personal experience,” said Dr. Harris.
From Bed Bath & Beyond’s research the “Nestwell to Rest Well Guide” was born, an online quiz that helps customers identify their nesting preference, sleep habits and rituals to inform their nesting archetype and product preferences. The four archetypes are:
- The Coziest: Loves sleeping under layers of blankets and pillows.
- The Naturalist: Prefers to sleep in organic, natural or hypoallergenic bedding.<
- The Trendsetter: Can spend all day in bed with cozy and on-trend layers that change by season.
- The Functionalist: Likes to keep it simple, prefers simple layers and an unfussy bed, without decorative throw pillows
Once shoppers have identified their nesting archetype, Bed Bath & Beyond design partner Decorist delivers design tips and product recommendations to rest well and sleep happier.
