We're all a little different, so it's no wonder that we don't all like the same things in our most private spaces – our beds. We spend a third of our lives in our beds, so getting it exactly right is crucial. Some of us prefer our beds to be immaculately made, replete with hospital corners and precisely aligned pillows. Others toss the quilt cover back in the morning and walk away without thinking about it.
Many of us have probably had arguments with our partners about how we make our beds. The subject of whether or not to use the fitted sheets that provokes more debate than whether or not to put pineapple on pizza. There is no middle ground; you're either all-in or all-out. We at SleepWorld have made the decision not to take sides in this unwinnable conflict. As a result, our Sheet Sets and Bed Sets do not include the fitted sheets; however, it is available as an add-on for those of you who can't sleep without one.
As it turns out, a sizable number of people all across the world have elected to forego the fitted sheet, sometimes known as the top sheet. According to studies, over 40% of Americans do not use a fitted sheet. Based on our clients' purchase history, we estimate Australians have a similar high percentage of fitted-sheet only users. You might wonder why. We utilize quilts or duvets that are protected by a removable and readily washable quilt cover, unlike much of America.
We've got you covered if the fitted sheets are as important to you as wireless internet. It's as easy as checking a box to add it on! It adds a layer of protection between your sweating body and the quilt cover, allowing you to wash the cover only once a month. And that has to be a success since no one wants to battle with their quilt any more than they have to. So, no matter which side you're on, pineapple or no pineapple, fitted sheet or no fitted sheet, we wanted to give you the freedom to design the bed of your dreams. All that's left to do now is pick a color.
Nothing is more aggravating than tugging at the too-small fitted sheets, or tucking additional fabric under heaps of unneeded fabric but never quite getting things snug. Our beds' length and width are accommodated by sheeting, but what about their depth? Mattresses these days range in depth from 7" to 21", proving that, despite the boasts of the all-too-common fast-fashion bedding companies cropping up, there is no "one-size-fits-all" option.
We take fittings seriously at SleepWorld. When purchasing high-quality bedding, it's critical that it not only feels good but also fits properly. When purchasing fitted sheets, you'll note that we ask for the depth of your mattress, and this is for a good reason: we want to make sure you get fitted sheets that truly fit.
What’s the season?
Various sheets are better suited for various seasons. Cotton is a great year-round fabric because of its insulating characteristics, which allow it to provide optimal comfort regardless of the season. Linen is most suited for warmer areas, since it combines all of the necessary ingredients to keep you comfortable during the hot summer months. They can, however, give a level of insulation similar to cotton, making them excellent all-weather options. Choose a set that is cool in the summer and add warmth in the winter with bedspreads and winter duvets if you don't want to be overburdened with different seasonal sheets.
What’s your current look and style?
Finally, but certainly not least, think about the sheets' style and patterning. Are you creating a new look from the ground up or are you enhancing an existing one? Will the colors compliment, contrast, or just clash with your personal style? Do you want the freedom to mix and match whatever you choose? Neutral-colored bed sheets are excellent for almost any situation. You can mix and match them with other neutrals or use them to compliment and contrast warm and cold hues.
When coupled with a white quilt cover or bedspread, black bedsheets, for example, instantly add sophistication. Any color you put on the same black sheets will pop, resulting in eye-catching artwork. Or perhaps you like a more laid-back vibe. White sheets provide the ideal backdrop for a quieter mood, subduing more brilliant colors and giving the room a more delicate vibe.
