The Value of Having Good Bed Linen
A bedding set is a pack of matching bed sheets and pillowcases that are bundled together for convenience. Usual bed sheet set size options include single or king single, double, queen, king, or in some cases super king.
When you buy linen bedding sets, it will include a fitted bed sheet to cover the mattress of your bed, a top flat sheet to create a barrier between your body and the doona or quilt cover, and a pillowcase. For double, queen and king bedding sets, you get a fitted and flat sheet plus two European pillowcases.
While flat or fitted base sheets are a matter of personal choice, it's recommended to make use of the two bed sheets to help reduce sweat transferral and keep your bedding as fresh as possible until wash day. Quality bed sheets play an important role in protecting your mattress for longer life while creating a smooth and comfortable surface for you and your family to sleep on, which is essential for a good night's sleep and much-needed beauty sleep.
How to Choose the Best Bed Linen
You don't need to be an interior design guru to choose the best bed linen, but it pays to know a few pointers so you get the bedding set to suit your purposes:
Materials & Fabrics
Cotton and cotton blends are the most popular materials but you can also find a wide range of bamboo, flannel, satin and polyester bed sheet sets. Egyptian cotton is also popular due to its durability and luxury. If you're prone to allergies, make sure you look for bed linen that is made from natural fibres.
Thread count is the number of vertical and horizontal threads per square 10cm and, when it comes to bed linen and bedding, higher isn't always better. The fibre, yarn size, finishing and construction will all determine the real quality of your bed linen, so don't be distracted by sales pitches about high thread counts. For example, a lower thread count made with higher quality materials will last longer than a high thread count made with ordinary quality fabrics.
Bedding sets with high thread counts trap heat rather than let the air flow more freely, which is ideal if you prefer to be warmer when you sleep. Lower thread count linen bedding allows air to move through your sheets more easily and still feel soft and luxurious for the person who likes a lower sleep temperature.
Size & Coverage
Know the dimensions of your mattress so you purchase a sheet set with the perfect fit. Extra-deep fitted sheet sets are available for padded mattresses and you can also buy large flat bed sheets to make them fit more securely on the bed. Most bedding set packaging specifies the dimensions, so make sure you check before you buy.
