A night of good sleep is the most fulfilling feeling ever! We’re sure no one out there can deny it. Uneven or disturbed sleep can break your peace and even ruin your day (not to scare you…but the truth it is!)
Understanding this, it is only natural to acknowledge that bed sheets carry a huge significance in everyone’s lives. So much care goes into analyzing and deciding the fabrics as it goes on to coexist with us for long hours.
One of the many reasons why consumers are skeptical while shopping bed sheets online too!
That’s why we have curated a quick guide to ensure you don’t go choosing poor quality-based materials. Hey, and also find out why online shopping may truly be a better option (that’s right!).
The right measure
Have you ever gotten bed sheets that just don’t stay put on your mattress? Or some others being too excessive for your cot?
Just make sure you measure next time! It’s not as complicated as you think it would be. All you got to do is note down the dimensions of the mattress and match it with the description online.
The king and queen size labels, single and double fitting tags – can be quite confusing when buying through websites. That’s why the dimensions can help you overcome the struggle. In most cases, there will also be an option to connect with the brand’s consultants. An interaction with them would provide ample details of the fit you seek for.
One of the common mistakes consumers make is ‘adjusting’. Bed sheets cannot be left to fend for themselves without perfect fitting. Due to such instances, sleep gets compromised and the quality (of fabric) becomes unworthy there.
Remember, survival (of bed sheets) is only through the fittest!
Speaking of which, fitted bed sheets are another option that you can opt for while shopping online. But again, choosing a free size wouldn’t still work here. You will have to match the dimensions before you settle with the aesthetics.
Bed sheet thread counts – a necessity?
Thread count is not a necessary trait to be analyzed in fabrics. Premium brands market their products to achieve commercial stature when they say ‘the higher the thread count, the greater the quality.’
And no, this is not a random statement. A detailed review of this is in one of our earlier blogs as well – Read here
When it comes to bed sheets – fabric feel, comfort, and style matter the most, ensuring they resonate with your idea of ‘comfy sleep’ and nothing else. Each person prefers to cuddle in a certain way. So the product could undergo a quality check from that perspective.
That being said, linen and 100% cotton fabrics are the most sought-after bed sheets. The reason? The quality it offers! It is breathable, cozy, and adjusts with the temperature around. The material organically adapts to the requirements of the ‘sleeper’. Satin sheets and silk cotton blended (bed sheets) do not have that innate quality, thereby sticking with an ‘occasional’ approach.
Shopping online means you get to see unlimited options. There would be block prints, woven patterns, solid colors, pastel shades, and so much more. The task here is to stay focused on what you need.
You cannot be buying colors or prints that do not go with your abode. Plan your theme, style, and have a blueprint of it in your mind before you get scrolling through designs online.
If you’re looking to decorate your home from scratch, then you can daringly experiment with pops of colors, threadwork, and whatnot! But in case you are choosing pillow covers to match your existing bed sheets or a whole set of bed sheets to go along with your interiors, selective shopping is the answer.
Get choosy with tones so you hit the right mark!
Following these steps will make a great shopping experience online and add insight into how easy, and (more importantly) efficient it is.
