Tips for Choosing Your Luxury Bedding

If you have a desire to re-invent your bedroom, then changing your bedding can have a dramatic effect on the entire feel of the room. Opting to introduce luxury bedding to your bedroom can transform a tired or ordinary bedroom in to a room that you’d expect to find in a high end hotel or even a palace.

There are several aspects of bedding to consider when choosing luxury bedding which includes type of sheets, temperatures, the size of your bed and of course colour and pattern.

For true luxury bedding sets you will want to choose bedding that has a high thread count. This means that your want sheets that offer a high level of threads per square inch of material. Essentially, the higher the thread count, the higher the comfort, the greater the durability and the better the silky feel of the material. If you are intent on adding a high luxury feel to your bed then you need to be looking for a thread count in excess of 400. Many people like to have Egyptian cotton, but do be aware of blends which can be of lesser quality, so to be on the safe side do ask for 100% Egyptian cotton. The other favourite is Pima cotton which is largely grown in the Americas and is generally denser and more durable than ordinary cotton. This type of cotton is named after the indigenous American people, the Pima.

If you tend to get hot at night then you’d need to consider bedding sheets that are 100% linen. Linen does tend to be cooler than cotton, though 100% cotton does also give that cool and crisp feel. However, if you tend to feel the cold at night, then flannelette bedding sheets is the way forward. Many people use flannelette in the winter months and then switch to cooler fabrics during the warmer months of the year.

Whatever, the type of fabric you prefer, choosing the right colour and pattern is tremendously important to get right. Things have moved on considerably, since all bedding seemed to be white cotton. With such a large choice of colours and patterns available making the right decision can be difficult. You will need to carefully consider your existing bedroom furniture as you will not want to introduce too many contrasts, so do try to choose something that will blend well with existing schemes. It is sometimes a good idea to use different patterns and sizes of patterns that incorporate the same or similar colour schemes. If you want to introduce some bold patterns then perhaps think about off-setting them with a solid coloured fabric. At the end of the day, don’t be afraid to experiment and come up with something unique, after all, it is your bedroom!
