Although some overlook their importance when it comes to making a bed more comfortable, bed sheets are the ones that spoil your skin and make you feel like you’re in heaven after a long day at work. And guess what makes a Sunday morning so relaxing? Bed sheets again! So see here how to choose your bed sheets so that they will be the best for you

1. How to choose your bed sheets according to the fabric. Fabric is extremely important when you have to choose the bed sheets, because they are in touch with your skin most of the time. Cotton is generally recommended, because it’s the healthiest option available, and for this, the highest quality version is the 100% Egyptian cotton, famous worldwide. Generally, you can rely on the thread count for the fabric you’re choosing if you want to make sure it’s the best one available. The higher the thread count, the better, but the type of cotton is sometimes more important. Other fabrics, like silk or sateen, are more elegant and make for a more beautiful interior design.

2. For the kids. If you carefully choose the bed sheets for your own bed, you should pay even more attention when choosing them for your kids’ room. There is a recent trend among new parents which consists in choosing antibacterial clothes and sheets for the newborns. Although it might seem like a good idea, it’s not, because as soon as the child grows and takes contact with the germs in real life, he won’t be prepared to fight them and therefore, he will be more likely to be sick.

3. How to choose your bed sheets depending on the length. If you have a standard bed, this shouldn’t be a problem for you, since you can find perfect sized sheets. If, however, you have a custom-made bed, you should consider having some custom-made sheets too. The right size of the sheets is quite important, since it has an important role in your comfort. Nobody likes sheets that are too short and keep slipping overnight, or some that are too long and hang around the bed, maybe even causing you to trip and fall when getting out of bed.

4. Depending on the pattern. Usually the bed sheets shouldn’t have heavy patterns or prints, but if you love certain themes or your room is built around a central point (like that of the kids, for instance) you can make an exception. Equilibrium is the best option for your bedroom, for instance, if you have solid colors around the room, you can choose a daring pattern for the sheets or the other way around or even choose decorative pillows to pop some color. But make sure you don’t overdo it, since the design has to be pleasant to the eye. Other than that, sleep tight!
