Buying Tips For Bedroom Bed Sheets
At one point or another in life, most of us have to buy a set of bedroom bed sheets. There are several tips to buying the bedroom bed sheets so that it gives you ultimate comfort. Here are some of them. Measure your bed. Make sure the fitted sheet is deep enough for your mattress thickness. Most beds are standard size and bed sheets are easy to find for your twin, double, queen or king-sized beds. There’s also specialty sizes such as California King and extra long twin that require custom sized bed linens. For thicker mattresses, buy deep-pocket fitted sheets. Read the package, or label, to see the bed sheet set’s thread count, that determines how many horizontal and vertical threads are in each square inch of material. The higher the thread count, the softer the material feels. Below 300, the sheets tend to be scratchy. Anything below 175 is a waste of money, no matter how little they cost.Sheets with thread counts of 600 or more tend to be thin unless they are two-ply.
That’s another factor to note. The ply multiplies the thread count, so a two-ply sheet with a 180-thread count has the feel of a 360-count sheet. Buy bedroom bed sheets accessories such as bed sheet straps. They strap onto the bed sheets under the mattress and keep the sheet from easily falling off while you’re sleeping.
