The Buyer’s Guide to Best Bed Sheets  

Here is what you need to know to get the bed sheets that suit you best.

Thread count

As the name suggests, thread count refers to the n of threads woven into a square inch of the fabric. Consider the one with a minimum or 200, but no higher than 600 because anything over this is likely to feel uncomfortable.

Ideally, bed sheets falling within the thread count range of 280 to 400 will have a soft, smooth, absorbent, and breathable feel. They will feel better and shrink less which mean you will replace them less often than their counterparts. Best of all- they are widely available in all price ranges.

Consider the material

Since ancient times, cotton has been one of the most popular sheeting fabrics, and for many good reasons. It’s durable, comfortable, and breathable. Moreover, as it both let’s cold air pass in summer and traps heat, it’s an excellent choice for any climate. But it comes in different qualities which affect it pricing.

For instance, Egyptian, Sea Island, and Pima cotton are of high standards especially if the fabric is 100 percent that material. Then there are bamboo blends often mixed with cotton or other materials. As it is naturally antimicrobial, sustainable, and soaks up moisture, it is well worth considering.

And finally, Linen sheets are another great option as they work well in hot climates due to their ability to wick body heat. Just make sure to do a lot of ironing, unless of course you like that wrinkled look.

The size matters

Single, double, queen or king, buy your bed sheet based on the size of your bed. Measure the length and depth of your mattress and add 2 to 3 inches on each side as you need adequate fabric to tuck it in. If you are buying cotton sheets, buy a bigger size as it might shrink over a period.

Ease of maintenance

Most bed sheets can be tossed into a washing machine when necessary, but some like high-end silk requires special treatment to maintain their appearance and quality.  So, depending upon your usage– daily or occasional, be sure to check care instructions carefully.

Plain printed or pattern

While this is purely a personal choice, design, and appearance of the bed sheets do matter. We recommend if your furniture and walls have prints and decorative designs then opt for plain or solid colored sheets. Whereas, if you have plain or neutral colored furniture and minimal to no wall decor, go for printed or patterned bed sheets to add some jazz.
