Search for those silky yet crisp sheets comparable to the ones you'd find at luxury hotels. These sheets tend to be in the 300-thread-count mark, and they are always 100% cotton, keeping you cool and comfortable all night long. Want to know the best part? These bad boys will only get softer with every wash.
Choosing A Weave
Sateen: Sateen offers an ultra-silky feel and opulent sheen. They are naturally wrinkle-resistant and tightly woven, therefore typically much heavier in weight than many other options.
Percale: Percale features a matte finish and a crisp, cool feel that enhances with every wash. It is highly durable, won't pill over time, lightweight, and breathable, making them an excellent option for those who sleep hot or live in a warmer climate.
Flannel: Flannel cotton sheets are constructed with a plain or twill weave, making them softer and more pliant than most other weave options. It traps body heat, keeping you warm and toasty while you sleep, ideal for those who sleep cool or live in colder climates.
Linen: Linen sheets are ultra-soft and highly durable, but they are not wrinkle-free. They are ideal for all seasons and all types of sleepers, effortlessly keeping you cool during the summer months and warm during the winter months so you can use the same sheets year-round.
Top off your bed with two to four down pillows and two fiber-fill pillows. Most sheet sets will come with two standard-sized pillowcases that match the entire set. You can also ever go wrong with a couple of fun, colorful, and vibrant throw pillows to add some character to your bedding. More pillows, more problems (said no one, ever)
Stick To All White
White is the most commonly used color for hotel linens and bedding, but why is that? White bedding gives off a light and airy vibe to tuck yourself into every night.
Folded Over Fitted
Hotels use two flat sheets instead of one fitted sheet, and the bottom flat sheet is usually oversized and tightly tucked around the mattress. The top sheet is tucked into the sides and the foot of the bed, with the top folded over as well. Many sheet sets will give you the option to order without the fitted sheet or opt to spend a few extra bucks as an add-on when placing your order.
Add A Featherbed
Featherbeds add a cloud-like factor to a bed. This is what makes those hotel beds extra comfy and plush. You can find quality featherbeds and mattress toppers at stores like Homegoods, Bed Bath & Beyond, Target, and even Walmart. There is no need to break the bank for a good night's rest.
