Did you know that most people are side sleepers? Well, it's true! So, when it comes to picking out the best pillows Dunelm has to offer, we feel like we have to cater to the side sleeping army.
And the Fogarty pillow is ideal in this area. It has a very large loft, making it so that your head and neck can stay perfectly straight all night long. Plus, even though it's a memory foam pillow, the pillow is actually firm.
So, you don't have to worry about your head sinking into the pillow and putting pressure on your neck! And this is rather ideal, as you get a slight hugging sensation, which is the best part of memory foam pillows, without the downside of neck pain.
It's a bit annoying that you have to sponge clean the pillow but considering the price, we'd still say this is the best pillow Dunelm has to offer.
You probably expected the winner in the Best Hypoallergenic category to be some synthetic pillow, but we chose a feather and down pillow instead.
Many pillows with natural filling are not suitable for allergy sufferers due to dust mites, pollen, and other microscopic allergens. If feathers or wool are treated in a special way, then all allergens are completely removed and that pillow becomes hypoallergenic.
The Dorma Hungarian Goose Down pillow is filled with a blend of 70% Hungarian goose down and 30% goose feather, which is the perfect ratio to make the pillow both supportive and soft.
This makes it ideal for both back and stomach sleepers, as your head can sink into the cloud-like pillow and keep your spine straight. Although side sleepers might find it too soft.
Breathability is also great and the premium cotton cover is soft, durable and hypoallergenic. So, aside from just being hypoallergenic, the pillow is just top-notch in terms of quality.
No, we didn't make a mistake, this memory foam pillow is really cooling. It features technology that actively responds to your body temperature and then when you are hot, it absorbs excessive heat, which is then stored until you are cold, when the pillow will release it.
So, if you often find yourself waking up covered in sweat, this might be the pillow you've been looking for! This goes double if you live in a hotter or more humid climate.
We recommend it for side and back sleepers. This is because the pillow is quite firm and has a larger loft, allowing your head and neck to stay straight while sleeping.
The pillow also has two separate sides! One is cotton and the other is polyester, so you can choose the one you prefer.
Although off-gassing is present in the first 24 to 48 hours, this should not worry you, as it is not a consequence of toxic chemicals, but a normal occurrence for memory foam. It is CertiPUR certified, so you can be sure it is 100% safe.
We will not say anything incorrect if we say that Dunelm pillows are suitable for everyone. How is it possible? This is possible because on Dunelm website and in stores you can find so many different models of pillows, that everyone will find suitable ones. Whether you sleep on your stomach, back or side or combine all three positions. Or struggle with chronic neck pain. Or that you may have allergies to dust mites and some other things, at least one model is waiting for you, and probably more, which will solve your problems.
Dunelm, officially called Dunelm Group Plc, is one of the largest home furnishings retailers in the UK, with over 150 stores and a highly developed webstore. The London Stock Exchange ranks them among the 350 largest UK companies. Dunelm is headquartered in Syston, England and their factory for curtains, blinds and accessories is located in Leicester, England.
Although Dunelm does not make pillows, many customers decide to buy pillows in one of the stores or on the webstore because there are over 100 different pillows in its offer, so everyone will find at least one suitable. You can choose between those made of synthetics materials, natural materials, as well as different shapes, for example V-shaped, travel pillows, pregnancy pillows and so on.
It is certainly not possible to mention every feature as there are so many pillows that Dunelm sells. But we will mention most important features that are common to a large number of available products.
The firmness of the pillow you need depends on your preferences and sleep position. Some like to sleep on a very soft pillow, while others like a pillow firm almost like a rock. Also, different sleep positions require different firmness. Stomach sleepers need a firmer pillow than side sleepers, while back sleepers have more choice.
In the offer you will find pillows that are so soft and fluffy that your head will sink in as soon as you lie down. You can also find one very firm, with a lower loft that will provide ideal support when sleeping on your stomach.
We have already mentioned the pillow with natural filling which is hypoallergenic and available in Dunelm stores. Also, all other available pillows that are completely or partially made of natural materials, such as Panda Bamboo pillow, are hypoallergenic. The same goes for memory foam and microfibre pillows, as these are materials that are generally recommended for allergy sufferers and as a down alternative for vegans.
It is very important that you use hypoallergenic and anti-bacterial sleep products to avoid allergy problems, even if you have never had allergies in your life. Also, bacteria can cause folliculitis and other problems, so anti-bacterial products are recommended.
The ergonomic shape of the pillow is especially useful for side sleepers. Such pillows follow the anatomy of a person and provide special support at the neck area.
In this way, the position of the head and neck allows the spine to be aligned and the side sleepers to be pain-free in the morning.
This shape of the pillow is also useful for back sleepers, while stomach sleepers choose a different shape.
Artificial materials have taken precedence in the sleep industry due to their numerous benefits. They are supportive, durable, vegan-friendly, affordable and usually machine washable. However, what worries many customers are the toxic chemicals that are sometimes used during the production of artificial materials. Off-gassing further amplify that concert.
Although off-gassing must be present, that is not reason for concern, since Dunelm offers only those pillows that are made of high-quality artificial materials, completely safe. CertiPUR, OEKO-TEX and other certificates guarantee that memory foam, microfibre and hollowfiber are chemical-free.
Despite all the benefits of artificial materials, some properties have only natural materials because of which many customers will always want to sleep only on a feather / down or wool pillow. Benefits such as natural thermoregulation and comfort characterise natural materials. The natural materials used for pillows are washed and treated so that people who have allergies can also use them.
Although vegans almost always buy sleep products made from artificial materials, they should know that most natural materials are also vegan-friendly. For example, wool and cashmere are obtained by shearing sheep and other similar animals, because it is necessary to do so during the summer, and not just so that man can use their wool.
There are some basic tips for buying and using Dunelm pillows that we can give you. The first thing you need to do is consider what your preferred sleep position is. This will affect your choice of pillows the most. Next, you need to consider what material you want and whether you are hot sleepers. If you are a hot sleeper, then look for the product that is breathable and cooling. Our advice is to pay attention to maintenance, because it is very important that your sleep environment is always clean.
For each sleeping position – side, stomach and back sleeping, there is a suitable pillow, as well as for a combination sleepers, and in order to sleep comfortably, you must buy a suitable one for your sleeping position.
Breathability is one of the most important features, as it affects both the fact that you are not hot during the night, and the fact that allergens do not stay inside.
It is advisable to buy a pillow that is fully machine washable or has a removable, washable cover.
There are so many advantages of owning premium quality pillow, such as Dunelm pillows. The first and most obvious advantage is that you will be able to sleep comfortably and you will have no problem falling asleep. In addition to the fact that a good night's sleep is necessary to have energy for tomorrow, it also has great impact on our health. Insomnia leads to various physical and even mental problems.
Another advantage is durability. When you buy a topnotch pillow, you will use it for years. It is a much better option than buying a cheap pillow every year or every two that does not have the necessary characteristics even on the first day.
