Your sheets can make all the difference between a regular bed and one that you can’t wait to sink into at the end of the day. Here’s what you should be keeping in mind if you’re shopping around for sheets, plus our favorite picks for every kind of bed and every type of sleeper.
The first (and arguably most important) consideration when looking for sheets is to make sure they’ll actually fit your bed! This is especially important if you’re looking for fitted sheets: while flat sheets allow for more wiggle room and can often fit multiple mattress sizes, fitted sheets usually need to be exact.
It’s also important to consider the sheet manufacturer’s sizing chart. While most standard bed sizes tend to be fairly universal for length and width, you may want to measure your mattress anyways to ensure that you’re getting the perfect fit.
You’ll also want to make sure that you are measuring the depth of your mattress since mattress thicknesses are not standard and can vary from bed to bed (click here for more information on QuickZip’s sizing chart!).
The fabric that your sheets are made of is going to play a huge part in how comfortable (or uncomfortable) your nighttime haven is. You’ll want to consider your own needs and sleeping habits here.
Do you tend to sleep hot and need good airflow for a comfortable night’s sleep? You might need sheets made from breathable cotton. But if you’re always freezing cold? A thicker fabric like flannel that holds in your body heat is probably a better choice.
Fitted sheets are notoriously hard to change and even harder to fold and store away neatly, and this is a big deal if you have mobility issues or are simply tired of wrestling with your bed every time you need to change your bedclothes. QuickZip makes changing and washing your sheets as easy as zipping and unzipping, making taking care of your bed a breeze.
Lastly, you can’t forget how those sheets look! Your bed is a focal point for your entire bedroom, so the right sheet color can make or break your room’s ambiance. Looking for something cool, calm, and welcoming?
Stick with neutrals or a muted color palette. Want a statement piece? Look for bold colors and/or eye-catching designs that’ll stand out and look great even when layered beneath your comforter or duvet.
