Top Reasons to Buy Bed Sheets


Around one-third of your life is spent sleeping. So why is it when we think of re-decorating our bedrooms the first thoughts are about paint treatments and decorative lamps and not the quality of the bedding we use? After all, having great bed sheets is akin to having restful sleep that leaves you refreshed and ready to go in the morning.

Great looking bedding can dramatically change the style and personality of a space all on its own. A new color or patterned bedding set, beautiful new pillows and fitted sheets can make a room that looked tired seem revitalized and inviting, and easily take a room that was French country previously and transform it to one that screams Asian splendor.

In addition to wanting something that looks great, you want something that will feel great as well. There’s no point in spending money on a beautiful new duvet and matching sheets if the material is scratchy or will fall apart after a few washings. When it comes to your boudoir, luxury should be the byword, and having quality materials is the best way to accomplish this. High thread count (thread count is the number of threads per square inch of fabric, and includes both the vertical and horizontal thread weave) means that your sheets were made with more precision and effort towards comfort and quality than you would see with a lower thread count. While there is more to great bed sheets than just thread count, such as weave material and the fabric ply, having a higher number of threads is always an indication of quality.

If you have ever slept at a quality hotel, then you already know how much a high thread count can add to your sleep experience. Low thread counts are what account for the super-thin muslin feeling sheets you get at a sub-par destination. As the sheets rest against your body directly, unlike your blankets and duvet cover, having an excellent feeling material is especially important. Having well fitted sheets with a high thread count can help make the difference between sleeping in luxurious peace and kicking the uncomfortable sheets down and then tossing and turning throughout the night. Sheets with a thousand or twelve-hundred thread count will feel worlds different than the sale items you probably allowed yourself in the past.
