Do you come from the time when all bed sheets were made up of white cotton? If so, you must be amazed and indeed surprised to check out the wide array of options that are available in the market these days. From the plethora of options that you find these days, you can easily add style, color and pattern to your bedroom by switching to the newest possible bedding options.
Are you planning to get for yourself the softest bed sheets? If answered yes, you have to keep in mind few important things so that you can easily settle with the best sheets in the market. As there are different types of bedsheets that are available these days, it is an overwhelming task to choose from them. Here are few things to take note of while buying bamboo bedsheets.
#1: Check whether you have the accurate measurements of your bed
You must be familiar with a queen or king or twin size bed. However, did you know that there’s no such standard measurement for beds which are given these names? Though the top measurements are consistent from one maker to another, yet there are variations. Hence, before you go out for shopping, make sure you measure the bed in a very careful way focusing on the dimension from side to side, top to bottom and the thickness of the mattress.
#2: Try to know about the thread count
At the front portion of the label, the manufacturer will have it mentioned the thread count of the bedsheet that you’re choosing. Thread count means the number of threads that are there per square inch in both weave and directions. It is usually believed that the higher the thread count is, the better you will feel the fabric to be. But you have to be aware of the fact that higher thread count means that the threads are thinner and they might not wear. Hence, for getting the softest feel, you should choose the thread count that’s more than 250 but not lower than 175.
#3: Choose a trustworthy store
The biggest department stores usually carry both house-brand sheets and name-brand sheets and they also offer a range of colors, patterns, quality and prices. You may be familiar with a linen store which has got different luxury linens or bed sheets which are embroidered. In case you have different things that are specifically there in your mind, don’t forget to shop around. It is only through shopping around that you can get a good bargain.
#4: Check the measurements of the sheet
Now that you know the exact size of the bed, you should also measure the size of the bedsheet so that you know whether or not it will reach deep inside your mattress. One more thing to remember is that most bedsheets will shrink by 7% after the first wash and hence be sure about the size that you prefer.
Therefore, whenever you’re trying your best to get the best possible bedsheets for your bedroom which give a new look to your rooms; keep in mind the above listed points.
