Choosing The Right Bedroom Bed Sheets
Bed sheets play a unique role in enhancing the beauty of your bedroom. Choosing the right bedroom bed sheet is of utmost importance as the use of this fabric has grown from providing comfort to play a vital role in home furnishing. Here are several tips to choosing bedroom bed sheets. Choose the right color – make sure the color of the bed sheets go well with the comforter and the bedroom. Choose the right size – You will need to know both the bed type (twin, full, queen, king) and the depth of the mattress (measured in inches). On the bed sheet packaging the depth will be listed sometimes as the “pocket”. Choose a pocket size that is closest to the depth of your mattress. Choose the fabric type – bed sheets come in a variety of fabric types: cotton, polyester, silk, etc. Choose a fabric that appeals to you personally. Choose the fabric quality – the most common measure of quality in bed sheets is thread count, which is the number of threads per square inch of fabric. A 300 – 400 thread count or higher is considered good quality.
At the upper ends of thread count the difference is not very noticeable (800 thread count and 1000 thread count feel the same). Quality can also come from the specific type of fabric, for example Egyptian cotton sheets are made from thinner and longer cotton fibers. Visit a store in person to experience the feel of different quality bedroom bed sheets. Compare prices online – Once you know the size, type and quality of the bed sheets you want to purchase go online to compare prices. Once you find a low price you can either buy the sheets online or ask a bedding store to match the price.
