Picking out bedroom bedding sheets is a seemingly simple task, but is it easy to find just the right sheets? Not if you don’t know what to look for. Here are some things you will want to consider about your bedroom before choosing which sheets are best for you.
1. Bed size:
You obviously need your bed to fit into the room. If that means you will have to buy sheets that are bigger than the standard sizes then so be it. Just remember that if you have a king-size bed and only need standard-sized sheets, then you will have to purchase more than one set of sheets. It is best to opt for oversized sheets like those that are 10 inches wider than a twin-size sheet.
2. Type of bed:
It is important to choose the right kind of bedding. There are sheets that can be used in a futon, and there are sheets that can be used in a convertible or even a full-sized bed. Before purchasing sheets, you should ask yourself which type of bed you want to use them with. It may seem like an insignificant question at first but it will pay off if you get these right.
3. Crib size:
If you are going to have a newborn, then you will want to buy sheets that are soft and breathable. You do not want fibers that irritate their skin, but you also do not want the sheets to be too thick. The right balance is to go with a sheet that is thin but also allows air movement. Cotton crib sheets are best for this because they can still be used as regular adult sleeping sheets.
Pillowcases do not have to be made from cotton. They can also be made from a variety of other materials. Some of these include silk and polyester, but the best for your sheets are cotton pillowcases. The reason that cotton is best is because it wicks away moisture and will allow you to get a good night’s sleep.
