While designing your bedroom, you want everything to be perfect. However, people often do not pay heed to many elements thinking they are a trivial part. Among the most ignored elements are the bed linens. While buying linens for your bedroom decor design, there are a few things that you need to consider. Besides the comfort, you need to check if the colour and design of the linens are complementing the home interior designs. Mentioned below are a few tips to help you choose the perfect linen for your bed sheets:
01 of 05 Thread count
While buying linens, one of the most important things you need to check is the thread count of the linen. If you are not sure what thread count is, you need to get a clear idea. If you are looking for bed sheet lines that are very comfortable, you should look for options that have a higher thread count. However, a soft sheet does not necessarily have a higher thread count. Many manufacturers use various chemicals in the manufacturing process to make the sheets feel softer. But the softness disappears after one wash. Egyptian cotton, Pima cotton, or combed cotton are a few good options available in the market.
02 of 05 Careful while buying Egyptian cotton
Egyptian cotton is the finest option you have at hand. It is the most expensive and luxurious product in the market. However, you should be careful while buying Egyptian cotton. Given its immense popularity, many manufacturers sell poor-quality Egyptian cotton to their customers at the same price to make a bigger profit. Unlike real Egyptian cotton that is grown in Egypt, these manufacturers grow this cotton outside of its natural climatic conditions. Compared to the real material, this is of inferior quality and hence, it is far less durable and not very soft. To avoid such scams, always buy Egyptian cotton from renowned sellers instead of local dealers. If the price seems to be too good to be true, you probably buying fake items.
03 of 05 Always ensure that it fits perfectly.
While buying bed sheets for your bedroom decor design, you should always ensure that they fit perfectly. In case you end up buying a bed sheet that is too big or small for the bed, it will diminish the overall room’s appeal and make your bed look weird. For a 38 x 75 inch mattress, you will need twin sheets. A 38 x 80 inch mattress requires a twin XL sheet. Similarly, a queen mattress requires a 60 x 80 inch bed sheet and a king size mattress requires a 78 x 80 inch bed sheet.
04 of 05 Choose the design
After checking the basics, you should pay heed to the design of the bed sheet while buying it. The design of the bed sheet hugely impacts the overall appeal of the bedroom decor design. Choosing the right design for your bed sheet can be difficult, given the number of options available in the market. However, you can surely find a bed sheet that matches your taste and style. Also, you need to ensure that the design of the bed sheet complements the other elements in the room. If they do not match, the aesthetic appeal of the room will decrease. Do not forget to throw in some pillow covers that match the design of the bed sheet.
05 of 05 Think beyond the sheets
You should not just depend on the bed sheet while enhancing the appeal of the home interior design. Besides the bed sheets, there are other elements you can introduce to that space for enhancing the visual appeal. For instance, you can opt for a simple bed sheet and invest in other accessories like throw-in pillows, duvet covers, cosy comforters, and many more. The accessories do not have to expensive. The right items will help you to breathe new life into the home interior design.
