There are many things that make a bed. It’s more than just pillowcases and bed sheets, you need things like mattress pads, comforters, dust ruffles, frame protectors and so on. Having said that, though, there is no question that one of the biggest investments in your bedroom should be getting a nice set of sheets for your bed. After all, if you have an uncomfortable mattress, it won’t matter how good your other stuff is because you won’t get a good night’s sleep.
If you are looking to save some money on bed sheets but still want a comfortable night’s sleep, then you should buy only one top sheet instead of two. You can then use blankets or coverlets that can be removed during warmer months. This can save you more money every year. With less wear and tear, your double bed sheet will last longer as well. If your old set has worn thin, now is an excellent time to purchase replacements. You should also try washing them in cold water if it makes them softer for better sleep. If they don’t work out for you, feel free to donate them because otherwise, they are still in good condition!
Sateen Or Percale Weave
The weave is how bed sheets are made, and it’s important to note whether you have percale or sateen sheets. Percale bedding is tightly woven, so it has a very smooth feel. It’s also very durable and inexpensive. The downside is that these sheets tend to get very wrinkled; in fact, some manufacturers say they’ll never truly come out of the dryer wrinkle-free (though tossing them in your dryer along with a damp cloth will help). Sateen bedding is softer than percale because there are more yarns in each thread; however, it doesn’t last as long because it’s more delicate. You can often tell if your double bed sheet set is sateen because there will be shiny threads running through them.
Decide On The Materials
Bedding for your bed is available in a wide range of materials, including cotton, polyester blends and more. Because cotton requires little maintenance and can be washed in warm water using gentle detergents, it’s an especially good choice for active sleepers who have allergies or sensitivities. Polyester blends are durable but require dry cleaning or special treatment if you want to wash them at home. Consider how much time you’re willing to invest in caring for your sheets when choosing between materials. Typically, natural fibres will cost more than synthetic ones, though many high-quality options are made from long-lasting synthetic materials without being too expensive.
Get The Right Fit.
While both queen and king size sheets are wide enough to fit a double mattress, you might have trouble getting them over if your bed frame has posts or slats. If so, consider replacing your posts with bed rails for a sleeker look. Additionally, king size sheets aren’t as easy to come by as queen-size options, so it’s important you know your measurements before you buy. After all, there’s nothing more frustrating than purchasing a new pair of sheets only to discover that they don’t fit!
Choose Prints Or Plains.
You have many options for your bedsheets. You can opt for plain colours, patterns, stripes, floral prints and more! In many cases, choosing a basic solid colour makes sense because it won’t distract from your other bedding items or take away from other items in your room. For example, if you have a matching comforter set or already have several pillows with frilly designs on them, a plain white sheet would be a good option. On the other hand, if you are going for a more romantic look with just a pair of pillows and blankets as your main accents, picking out something like floral sheets could go along nicely with those items. The key is knowing what you want to match and then finding bedding that works well within that theme.
Add Fashionable Bedding Accessories
You can also add trendy bedding accessories like colourful pillows, throws and blankets in your bedroom to give it a unique look. Please make sure you match these accessories with your double bed sheets by choosing their colours in line with them. Add natural light: Lighting is essential in any room, but it is especially important for bedrooms. It helps to improve mood and gives you an easy way to get ready for any day that lies ahead.
