5 Tips for Choosing the Best Bed Sheets

How To Select The Right Sheet - Home Direct Australia

Choosing the right bed sheets is essential for a good night's sleep. With so many different types of sheets available, it can be overwhelming to know where to start. 

This is our top 5 tips for selecting the best bed sheets:

  1. Consider the Fabric: The type of material used for your bed sheets can greatly impact your sleep quality. Some of the most popular materials for bed sheets include cotton, linen, bamboo, and microfiber. Each of these materials has its own unique characteristics and benefits, so it's important to consider your personal preferences and needs.

2. Look for Thread Count: Thread count refers to the number of threads woven into one square inch of fabric. Generally, the higher the thread count, the softer and more durable the sheets will be. However, keep in mind that a high thread count doesn't always guarantee quality, and there are other factors to consider as well.

3. Check for Breathability: Breathability is crucial for comfortable and restful sleep. Look for bed sheets that are lightweight and breathable, especially if you tend to overheat during the night. Materials like linen and bamboo are naturally breathable and can help to regulate your body temperature.

4. Choose the Right Size: Ensure you choose bed sheets that fit your bed size perfectly. If you have a queen-sized bed, for example, make sure you purchase queen-sized sheets to avoid bunching or shifting during the night.

5. Consider Your Budget: Bed sheets can vary greatly in price, from budget-friendly options to luxury bedding sets. Determine your budget before shopping and look for high-quality sheets that fit within your price range.

Types Of Bed Sheets

Bed Sheets Materials

Cotton Bed Sheets

Probably one of the most sought after materials due to its breathability and soft nature. Cotton is also durable and easy to maintain (although some sheets made from 100% cotton will wrinkle and may need ironing). The feeling of the product depends on the type, quality and manufacturing of the cotton, not necessarily the thread count.

Bamboo Cotton Bed Sheets

Bamboo sheets are usually a bamboo cotton blend. 60% bamboo 40% cotton, this would be a typical blend allowing the properties of the bamboo to work and the cotton to give the sheet strength and durability.

Bamboo sheets are incredibly soft to touch, softer than cotton and linen. Bamboo sheets are sustainable, naturally antimicrobial and moisture-wicking. Bamboo sheets breath better than cotton sheets while wicking the moisture away from your body keeping you cool and comfortable all year round. The perfect wellbeing sheet is the bamboo sheet.

Cotton Percale Bed Sheets

This is a breathable construction. In this weaving process, the threads are evenly distributed with one thread over and one under. Depending on the process and finishes it can either be crisp or soft so have a feel before you buy. Percale sheets can be made using a low thread count aiding the breathability of the sheet whilst feeling more like a higher thread count. Percale sheets in a 250 thread count for instance may have a better feel, greater durability than some of the higher thread counts.
