- Type: Flat sheets
When it comes to having the best night's sleep, it's not just the right bed that matters. Fresh, crisp, clean bed sheets you can slip into and drift off are a luxury we can all afford, so why not get that same hotel feeling you love in your very own bedroom? If you are looking for single or double bed sheets, or even larger we have a range of sizes to fit all. We also have an extensive range of bed sheets in styles and fabric to suit your taste, from super soft cottons and brushed cotton for those colder nights. Make sure you have a good night’s sleep with our quality bed sheets.
Generous flat bed sheets are basically a large rectangular shaped piece of material that is held in place by tucking in under the mattress. They can come loose during the night, but they are far easier to fold. You can use flat sheets as a layer between you and your mattress as well as a layer between you and your duvet, this alternate use for flat sheets is especially handy in the summer where nights can get too warm for a heavy duvet.
Fitted sheets however are far easier to use, thanks to the elasticated edges they stay in place over the mattress with ease, however because of the curved edges, they can be a tad fiddly to fold. Fitted sheets are a great choice for those who tend to move a lot during the night as they can withstand all the tossing and turning for a more secure fit.
The material you choose is also an important factor. Cottons come in a range including Egyptian cotton and cotton percale for a soft and natural feel, also ideal if you tend to get too warm as the natural qualities of cotton does not trap body heat in, making it a fresh and breathable choice. Other popular materials are brushed cotton and Polycotton; you still get the smooth soft cotton feeling but less wrinkling and very durable. Pay close attention to the material you purchase as this will affect your overall sleeping experience; whether you prefer a soft and silky feel or the fresh crisp touch of white bed sheets. The material and product description of your bed sheets should be able to give you an indication of the feel and care your bed sheet requires.
The thread count its essentially the number of threads woven lengthwise and crosswise within a square inch – generally the higher the count, the softer the material. But the thread count of a material is not the overall decider of comfort; depending on the nature of the fabric, some actually perform better with a lower thread count. For example, whilst Egyptian cotton is at its best within a 300-400 count, percale cotton is 250-300 and linen is 100-200.
