TIps When Purchasing Bed Sheets

There are many options when it comes to purchasing bed sheets, and price points range from $20 to hundreds and even thousands of dollars. Because of this, it can be very confusing when it comes to a consumer buying sheets. Fortunately, there are a few buying guides and tips to consider that will make the shopping trip a bit easier. Below are a few of those tips and things one should consider before buying their next set of sheets.


Silk, bamboo, line, cotton, and wood fiber are all materials that sheets are made out of, and each of these have benefits, as well as negative aspects about them. For instance, bamboo, wood fiber and silk are very expensive and are not very durable based on their price points. Linen and cotton are the most durable and affordable, but cotton has to be the most popular fabric consumers choose across the board.

Thread Count

Thread count has to do with the number of weft and warp threads in one square inch of fabric. The higher the thread count, the more expensive the set of sheets is at department stores and online sites. The quality of the sheets makes them more durable and comfortable for the consumer that is using them each night.

Deep Pocket Fitted Sheets

Mattress thickness now ranges from 9″ to 24″ and buying incorrect sheets that are too tight or small will result in the sheet slipping off from each corner. Not only that, but sheets that are too small are very difficult to put on, as well as adding much stress to the fabric that may result in rips. To avoid this, measure the mattress and its thickness to make sure the sheets purchased will fit well.

To recap, cotton sheets are the best fabric and most popular by consumers when it comes to their bed linen. Cotton is very affordable, it is comfortable, and it is very durable for many years to come. There are many grades of cotton, so choose one that is a bit higher. This may cost a little bit more, but it will be completely worth it overall.
