We spend around a third of our lives in bed asleep, so it makes sense that our bedding should be as comfortable as possible. Many of us struggle with getting a good night’s sleep and are unsure of what the reason for that is. Could it be that our bed linen just isn’t comfortable enough?
When it comes to choosing new bed linen for ourselves or our children, it can be a little overwhelming as there are lots of options. From choosing the thread count to choosing the type of fabric for your linen, it can be hard to know what bed linen is best.
However, it doesn’t have to be overwhelming; the key is to tackle each part of choosing bed linen separately. Want to find the perfect bed linen and get a great night’s sleep? Yes - here’s what you need to do:
It’s not all about thread count
When it came to choosing sheets a few years ago, it was all about the thread count of the linen. However, today, that is no longer the case. Unless the sheets you are investing in are made of a high-quality material, such as Martex sheets, then the thread count isn’t important.
Did you know that many low-quality bed linen companies mix cheaper yarns in with the more expensive ones? They do this so that their sheets have a higher thread count. That’s why when you are choosing new bed linen, it pays to buy from a reputable company.
The material you choose is important
When it comes to what we sleep on, we all have our personal preferences. While some people prefer to sleep on crisp, cool sheets, others prefer softer, more comfortable bed linen. When it comes to choosing new bed linen for yourself or your children, it’s important to take this into account.
From cotton sheets to poly-blend sheets, there are various options on the market. The type of sheets that you choose will depend on what material makes you feel more comfortable, as well as how much you can afford to spend.
If you want sheets that will last for a long time and are happy to pay out for them, Linen is the best option. Linen sheets are of an incredibly high-quality, are comfortable, great for keeping you cool in the heat, and will only get better with age.
Take note of the weave
Did you know that as well as taking note of the material and thread count, you also need to take note of the weave of the sheets? Believe it or not, how the sheets are woven affects how they feel.
For example, for a crisp feel to your bedding, you want sheets that are lightweight and tightly woven. Whereas, if you want bedding that is extra soft, you want to look for sheets with a more dense weave to them. It might sound confusing, but you can find all the information that you need on the back of the sheet packaging.
If you want to get a good night’s sleep the key is having bedding the is as comfortable as possible. That’s why it’s so important that you choose your sheets carefully, as if you pick the wrong ones, you may struggle to sleep.
