Everything you need to know about buying bedding
Getting bed linen right saves time and energy as it also helps you achieve a better night’s sleep. Here are some things to think about before buying bedding.
Think about size
Know your duvet size! This will save time on returning the linen.
Duvet size – 135cm x 200cm/ 53” x 79” – Linen size: Single
Duvet size – 200cm x 200cm/ 79” x 79” – Linen size: Double
Duvet size – 225cm x 220cm/ 89” x 87” – Linen size: King-size
Duvet size – 260cm x 220cm/ 102” x 87” – Linen size: Super King-size
For your bedding, make sure you check the material label to ensure you get the quality product you want. As a cheaper option, you can go for synthetic sheets. These can often be soft to touch.
Alternatively, go for the ultimate luxury feel. 200 or 400 count Egyptian cotton feels smooth, crispy fresh. Egyptian cotton bed sheets will add that hotel chic to your bedroom. They will also allow your skin to breath while you sleep.
If you suffer from allergies, non-allergenic sheets are defiantly the best option.
Flat or fitted sheets
Decide if you need flat or fitted sheets. Use fitted sheets to fit over the top of the mattress, the fitted elasticated corners prevent the sheet from coming off, instead, it stays fixed. A flat sheet is not the best option for this. Instead, use them to make your duvet thicker if your house is cold.
For pillow cases, make sure you have enough for your requirements, in double duvet sets they usually provide two pillowcases. If you sleep with four pillows you will need to find complimentary coloured pillowcases to go with the set. Make sure you have the correct sized pillowcases for your pillows, our buying guide for ‘How to buy duvets, pillows and mattress toppers’ will tell you all about the different sizes available to you.
