Does Thread Count Really Matter?

Sferra Egyptian Cotton Sheets

Does a high thread count ensure a better night’s sleep? Thread count is best used as a qualifier for comparing different products within the same brand, this means that a set of 300 thread count sheets from a luxury brand such as Sferra, will offer a tremendous feel, however not as nice as, say, a set of 600 thread count sheets from that same brand.

Thread count is nothing more than the number of threads per square inch. Even that number is somewhat misleading because it says nothing about the strength of the sheet in question. Two sets of sheets, both with a 1200 thread count, could be vastly different in terms of durability. Consider the ply, or number of layers. While both have a 1200 thread count, one has a 600 double-ply, the other a 1200 single-ply. Meaning the durability will be better in the set of sheets with a double-ply. Continue reading

The Ultimate Guide to Bedding Size Chart

When it comes to selecting the best bedding for your cozy place of rest, size is everything. You don’t want a too small comforter or an enormously large bedspread, as that would completely hinder your comfort and upset your ability to sleep well. Customizing your bedding to your liking has no set rules, so feel free to get creative, layering several different blankets and blanket types.

A bedspread and comforter can be used interchangeably, but they are two distinct types of blankets. A bedspread is generally larger, intended to cover the entire bed and possibly go down as far as the floor. For example, a full bed mattress measures 54” x 75”, and a full bedspread should measure 96” x 110”. A California king, the largest of all mattresses, is 72” x 84”, and the corresponding bedspread should be 114” x 120”. Bedspreads generally don’t offer as much warmth as a comforter, which should be made of a thicker material and fit the bed differently. A full-size comforter should measure 100” x 106”, while a California king should be 114” x 106”. Comforters are meant for warmth and comfort more than full coverage and attractiveness. An additional blanket option, a quilt, is generally smaller than the other blanket types and is purely for ornamental reasons and, if necessary, extra warmth in colder months. A full size mattress requires a quilt that is 80” x 80”, and a quilt for a California king should be 94” x 104”.

While any blanket option can suit your preferences and meet your needs, make sure you choose the proper size for each different blanket type to perfectly fit your size mattress.

How to Measure a Curtain

Curtains not only add privacy to a room, but they can also be the perfect final touch to complete the appearance of a room. However, simple mistakes when measuring your curtains can lead to a huge headache as you spend time and money hanging them just to find out your measurements were wrong. By taking a minute to properly measure your window, you’ll avoid common mistakes when you go to hang your curtains. All you’ll need is a tape measure, pencil, and a piece of paper.

Luxurious StylesHow to Measure a Curtain

How you measure your window depends on the type of look you want. For the luxurious look, you want your curtains to be hung as close to the ceiling as possible, while leaving enough length to allow them to flow to the floor. To accomplish this, you’ll measure above your window as close to the ceiling as you can get down to the floor, then add 8 to 10 extra inches. To find the ideal width, measure the width of the window and multiply by three.

Traditional StylesHow to Measure a Curtain

To measure curtains for the classic tailored look, you’ll want to hang your curtains about 6 inches above the window frame, but three inches beyond the window frame on the bottom, but this can be adjusted depending on how long you want the curtains to hang. Measure the width of the window and add one half inches of the width to increase the fullness of the curtains; thus, helping to hide the window frame.

Contemporary StylesHow to Measure a Curtain

To achieve the contemporary look where the curtains touch the floor, you’ll measure from 6 inches above the top of the windrow frame to 1 inch above the floor. Next, measure the width of the window and add one half to three times more inches depending on the level of fullness you want.

As a general rule of thumb, the higher you hang your curtains, the more inches in width you’ll want to add to achieve the ideal look. It’s also best to use a metal tape measure instead of a fabric tape measure, which can bend, causing inaccurate measurements.

Add style and privacy to your room by taking the necessary steps to properly measure your window for curtains.
