Very few things add more to the grandeur of your bedroom than the right pair of bed sheets. After a long day, nothing feels better than cozying up to crisp, clean sheets that keep you comfortable for a long, restful night of sleep. Providing more than functionality, sheets sets also add a bit of decorative flair to a room when expressly matched with curtains, comforters, duvets and other decorative accents in the room. Choose from a variety of different colors, patterns and styles to completely enliven your bedroom.
When it comes to bed sheets, one of the most important things to pay attention to is the thread count. A higher thread count offers a more luxurious feel and provides more durability for years of tumbles in the washer and dryer. A high thread count in an organic cotton sheet set, for example, offers a high level of luminousness and softness with resistance to wear, fading and pilling. In addition to cotton, flax linen is also a soft, durable material that does well for your restful night’s sleep. Choose from 100 percent Belgian flax linen for a beautiful, durable sheet set that endures for years. You are also able to match colors and styles of bed sheets and Belgian flax linen curtains to completely coordinate your bedroom in a crisp linen style.
Color is also an important consideration when choosing a sheet set. It’s not always imperative to match colors exactly in your bedroom, and it’s perfectly okay to mix and match a little bit to add vibrancy and cheer to the room. Many people match colors depending on the trims of their windows and the color and construction of their bed frames. For example, dark cherry and espresso wood do well with more neutral colors, while a lighter shade of wood such as pine pairs appropriately with darker colors, including navy blue or dark gray bed sheets. Neutrals such as beige and gray bedding generally work well with any color scheme, but gray goes especially well with pinks, yellows and whites for an elegant, classic look. Color possibilities are seemingly endless when you think about how you’d like to wake up your bedroom. Bed sheets with fun patterns, such as polka dots or stripes, are also a terrific idea. You are also able to develop a theme, such as choosing white and blue bed sheets for a bedroom with a marine or nautical look.
Many eco-friendly consumers are turning toward using more organic materials for their bed sheets. Organic bedding, such as cotton, not only feels soft and smooth to the touch but is also more eco-friendly as well. Far from typical, the organic bedding and bed sheets available from west elm come in a variety of patterns, colors and sizes to easily suit any bedroom. Choose thicker organic cotton flannel sheets for warmth in the winter, or thinner, crisp organic cotton sheets for a cool feel during the warmer months. You are also able to expertly pair organic bed sheets with other eco-friendly bedding, such as organic comforters, duvets and bed skirts, decorating your entire bed ensemble in soft, environmentally friendly fabric. Shams and pillowcases are also available.
For a more personal touch, many bed sheets also have the ability to be monogrammed. Not only does this add elegance and personal style to your own bedroom, but monogrammed and personalized items also make great gifts for newlyweds, housewarming parties or for the holidays. Depending on the bed sheet and type, you have the ability to monogram a single initial or a small group of letters. Pair personalized sheet sets with matching bed sheets for a design that completes your entire bedroom ensemble.
