What is a Bed Sheet?
Its simply a piece of fabric used to cover a mattress, and tends to be what you lie on while in bed, this is normally know as a bottom sheet (or fitted). In the United States its also common to use a second top sheet (or flat), which goes between you and your comforter, duvet or bedspread .
As we discussed there are two primary types of bed linens used with modern bedding collections, flat and fitted.
A flat sheet is characterized as a single piece of rectangular cloth that is laid over and simply tucked along the bottom sides of a bed.
A fitted sheet is characterized with bands of elastic or drawstrings attached to each of its four corners. The use of its fitted corners ensures that it stays in place while you sleep; prevent ing it from slipping off the bed mattress.
What is the difference between a fitted vs flat
Fitted are customized to fit a specific mattress and bed size, and feature elasticate corner that wrap over the corner of the mattress for a tight and tailored fit. Flat are single large piece of fabric which is folded around your mattress. Many people use both types, a fitted or bottom sheet lies against the bed, and you lie upon it when sleeping, a flat or top bed sheet lies over you, between you and your bed cover (comforter, quilts, bedspread, duvet cover) while you are sleep. If you are decorating on a budget you only need one of these bed sets, we suggest you opt for a fitted bed linens, for a tailored appearance.
Sheets can be purchased individually (also known as open stock) or as a set both have advantage and disadvantages. If you plan on buying a complete set, you will have perfectly matched bedding and pillow cases (most sets include a flat and fitted styles and pillow cases). On the other hand, if you plan on buying flat and fitted bed covers and pillow cases separately, you will be able to combine different colors and patterns together, for a unique bedroom decor design. You might want your pillow cases to be pink, while your fitted sheet brown – whatever your style is, it’s all up to you. You will tend to find that buying sets is a more affordable option than purchasing them separately and pillowcases ala carte.
How Many Pillowcases Are Included In A Set?
Most sets include pillow cases, the number of pillow cases included will vary with the bed size of the bed but normally full and twin sets include one pillowcase, and queen and king sets include two pillowcases -- please note, that some king and california king sets include larger sized pillow cases for king size pillows known as king pillowcases.
Bed sets are available in thousands of designs, patterns, colors and material, however some of the most common designs or styles are; solid, printed, pattern or woven.
If you’re looking for an elegant and simplistic approach your bedroom decor, then, solid sheet designs should be the perfect choice for you. Solid colored styles as the name implies feature a single solid color dyed through the entire fabric- making them great for both the male and female tastes and are available in hundreds of unique colors from vibrant brightly colors for teenagers and kids bedrooms, to subdued color palettes in earth tones for an adults bedroom, or for a mens or womens room.
In recent years printed design have become very popular, they feature a small pattern and or hem; often luxury bedding sets feature complementing printed designs which will feature patterns or fabrics directly taken from the fabrics or patterns of the main bedding set. Whether you want a delicate flower print or a cute Hello Kitty style design for a cute, adorable childrens bedroom, the printed bed sets category is the right place for you.
Especially popular with women shoppers a patterned style features a larger overall printed pattern, or woven pattern - they range from simple plaids and checks to the complex paisley, toile, leopard and cheetah prints , black and white zebra stripes, or even peacock designs. Extensive patterned designs are available in most stores so take time to choose the one which will flawlessly fit your style.
Fabrics & Materials
For softness and durability, sheets are primarily made from cotton or cotton blend (blended with a second material, polyester etc).
Cotton is the most popular material used for making the softest and highest-quality sheets. Such cotton with certified extra-long fibers is usually called long-staple cottons which include the Pima, Egyptian, and Supima cottons. Other materials that are used to craft high quality linens include silk, cotton-polyester, bamboo, flannel, and jersey knit.
Egyptian cotton is considered to be the king of all cotton because of the luxury and durability that it offers. But one question we receive frequently is “what is egyptian cotton”. The breathability of the Egyptian cotton is simply undeniable topped with a plus is resists piling. If you decide to buy an Egyptian cotton type, you should know that the slightly coarse feel at the beginning is normal – the more you wash it, the softer it becomes.
An organic sheet is considered to be chemical free and is never treated with unhealthy chemicals such as the formaldehyde that is often found in many household items including furniture and carpets - many feature organic cotton or bamboo. Also many natural or environmentally friendly covers feature all natural vegetable dyes, which are completely natural and perfect for people who have sensitivities to chemicals or allergies.
Thread Count Guide
The most common question we receive is “what is a good thread count for bed sheets”. The thread count is an important factor to consider if you’re meticulous about the softness, quality, and durability of the bedding that you’re buying. An average thread count of about 200 is good enough and will definitely provide you a long-lasting use. The 300 – 400 thread count range would be a little softer than the 200 and is still considerably affordable. Moreover, as the thread count rises from 400–900, expect the cost of the bed sets to rise substantially as will the softness and comfort is a guarantee. Nevertheless, a thread count of 1,000 or more is then considered to reach the height of luxury already – but remember, too much thread count is deemed to be less durable.
Weave is an important factor to consider when choosing your be linens. The weave will affect the way a the fabric feels like, the way it appears, its durability, and of course, its general price. If you are particular about the texture of your fabric, then knowing more about weaves is a must. Here are the most popular types of weaves.
Flannel weave feature a medium-weight quality with a napped overall texture on one or sometimes both of its sides. The raised surface of the flannel is then popular for the fluffiness and extra cozy feel that it offers.
Sateen weave is a cotton cloth that has been crafted with a satin weave. This weave is popular for its quality of providing an extremely soft and glossy sateen. The downside of this though is its durability – as its weave isn’t too tight, the sateen is considered to be less durable than the other weave types.
For a more crisp feeling with extra durability, a percale weave sheet is the right option for you. With a plain weave fabric, percale is more commonly used than sateen, and has an average thread count of about 180. Durability plus affordability are the top features of percale weave bed sets.

Twin XL Bedding
One common misconception that many people have is that a Twin XL bed commonly found in college dorm rooms requires all twin XL size bedding components -- that’s not true, a standard twin or full size comforter, duvet, bedspread or quilt will fit a twin XL bed, the only specific twin XL size item you need for a twin XL size bed is a twin XL fitted and flat sheet.
Pillow Case Sizes
Standard Pillow Case - 20in by 26in
Queen Pillow Case - 20in by 34in
King Pillow Case 20in by 40in
When purchasing fitted bed lines you should only consider the width and length of your mattress, but also the depth of your mattress, pocket depth is distance from the bottom edge of the mattress to the top, including all quilting and pillow tops that might have been placed on top of the mattress mattress. The pocket depth is less important when purchasing flat sheets as most are large enough to accommodate a deep mattress. However, in the last decade with the popularity of pillow top mattresses and new mattress technology, its important that you know the pocket depth of your mattress and purchase fitted sheets that will fit this pocket depth. The standard pocket depth of a standard mattress is 7 to 9 inches, while deep pocket mattresses measure about 10 to 15 inches, and lastly, the extra deep pocket depth would measure from 15 to 22 inches.
First consider type of you want – flat, fitted or both? Then decide if your want a coordinated set, or want to mix and match individual items and pillowcases. Next consider the materials, thread count, and weave that you prefer. If you are on a tight budget, a thread count of about 200 – 300 should be more than adequate, plus they will provide the extra durability for long-lasting use. Then determine the texture -- this is based upon your personal preference, remember that in choosing the perfect bed linens for your mattress, there is no right or wrong. Choose the design that fits your personality, as well as the quality that goes with your lifestyle.
