We put in a lot of efforts to find the right mattress. But we do not always give the same attention when we choose bedsheets. Simply going to any home store and buying a value pack would not be the right thing to do. Your bedsheets matter as much as the mattress underneath. Here are the most important aspects to consider when you buy bedsheets:
The choice of material is based on personal preferences. Each material comes with its own benefits. Consider the life of the material and the ease of maintenance when you buy a bedsheet. Organic materials are considered safe. Bamboo for example is becoming quite popular these days. My bamboo sheets are very soft and they are pretty durable as well.
- Consider the thread count:
This is the number of threads woven in a 1inch square of the fabric. The thread count combined with the material of the thread would determine the softness of the fabric. There is a common misconception that higher the thread count, softer the fabric. But with some materials lower thread counts might feel smoother.
- Weave type:
This would determine whether you sheets feel soft or crisp. Percale and sateen are the most popular types of weaves you must have come across. If you do not mind your sheets slipping off easily Jersey sheets are known to be very soft due to the flat knit.
- Size and fit of the bedsheet:
For the houses with kids fitted sheets are often the best options. This would make sure that moving around in the bed would not cause the sheets to slide off every time. Choosing the right size is also important. Something too small or too big would not just look bad but would also make it difficult for the sheets to stay in place.…
