Which fitted sheet is right for you?
Fitted sheets come in every mattress size, so to make sure you get the best use from your fitted sheet make sure you purchase one in your mattress size. If your mattress is particularly thick there are extra deep options too, to ensure the sheet fits all the way under. There are even fitted sheets for cots and child sized beds too.
The bed is a sacred place of sleep and relaxation, so which material you use for your sheets and covers is essential. Fitted sheets are available in a variety of fabrics, to make picking your ideal sheet as straightforward as possible. Cotton is always a popular choice, as are various polycotton blends. Satin and silk fitted sheets have very sheer finishes that are soft to the touch. A lesser known but creamily soft option is bamboo sheets, which are hypoallergenic and softer than cotton.
Thread count is a term often used as a selling point for bed clothes, and for good reason; thread count refers to the amount of horizontal and vertical threads per square inch of fabric. What this really means is that the higher the thread count, the softer your sheet will feel, because less space between the threads means a smoother finish. Most sheets available are between 150 to 400 threads per square inch, but this number can go all the way up to a very luxurious 800.
Fitted sheets come in a range of colours to match your bedding and décor, from neutral cream to bold red. Patterns and designs are also available to add a fun, cheery touch to your bed. If you’re looking to buy a complete bedding set that includes a fitted sheet then look no further; whether you’re shopping for an adult or a child, there are bed clothes to suit every size and taste.
The benefit of fitted sheets is that they don’t come away from your mattress as easily, but for extra security you can buy fasteners. Valance fitted sheets can be used to enhance the look of your sleep area, by covering a divan base or hiding any items you may be storing under the bed.
