New Delhi, Dec 20 (IANSlife) It is a universally known fact that we spend one-third of our lives asleep in bed. It stands to reason that your choice of bed linen is the most important decision you’ll make. A good night’s sleep is essential for optimal health, which makes the idea of buying beautiful bed linen not just practical and useful, but also a means to illuminate your space as your heart desires.
Puja Pusalkar, Creative Head of Portico New York, affirms that bed linen should be chosen specifically to suit your requirements. This allows the skin to cool down as the body rests at night. Here’s a quick guide to finding the right bed linen that will help you drift off to sleep each night in bliss.
Allow your requirements to dictate the kind of bed linen you purchase. If you need bed linen for everyday use, a simple 100 per cent cotton sheet is just perfect and will last for a considerable amount of washes and time. Cotton is the most preferred whilst buying bed linen since it is known for its breathability, softness, and sheen. It also tends to have hypoallergenic qualities. If you have sensitive skin and are prone to allergies, then using cotton sheets is a must. There are various types of cotton you can choose from, including organic, Egyptian, Pima and Supima cotton.
Paying attention to the weave is equally important as well. It can completely change the way you feel about your bed linen. The most popular weave is percale, as it is light with a subtle crispness around it making you bedsheet fit your bed snugly. A sateen weave will render a smooth and glossy finish to you bedsheet making it look rich and opulent.
Threadcount refers to the number of threads woven into one square inch. Generally, the higher the thread count, the softer the sheet is. Looking for bedlinen with a higher thread count assures you of top quality. An important point to make note is to be sure of the correct size of your bed mattress to ensure the appropriate bedsheet size.
