Shopping for linen sheets can sometimes feel a little confusing with all the different types and sizes. But we’re here to help you figure out how to choose the right sheet to enjoy the comfort of linen bedding.

Different types of sheets

Talking about the types, there are only two main options - a fitted sheet and a flat sheet, which is also called a top sheet. The fitted sheet features an elastic hem on all the sides, which helps in securing the fitted sheet on top of the mattress. Meanwhile, a flat sheet is made without the elastic hem so the sides are usually tucked under the mattress or left loose.

There are several ways of making the bed with both sheets:

1. Putting only a fitted sheet on the mattress.

2. Putting a fitted sheet on the mattress and then covering it with a flat sheet

3. Putting fitted sheet on the mattress and using the flat sheet as a top sheet instead of a duvet

4. Putting only a flat sheet on the mattress.

The way how both sheets are used may vary across the countries or depending on personal preferences. But knowing the possibilities may allow you to decide how you want to use the sheets yourself.

How to choose the right size?

When it comes to picking the size, you need to know the measurements or the name of the size of your mattress. If your mattress is Queen size, then a Queen size sheet will fit. If you know the measurements, choose your sheet according to the measurements.

In any case, when choosing a fitted sheet, size plays an important role. Because if you will choose a size too big or too small, the sheet will simply not fit the mattress and will be impossible to use. So before ordering the fitted sheet, double-check the measurements and if you are not sure, feel free to contact us and we will help you figure out the best size for your mattress.

With flat sheets, it is a bit more simple. You still have to know the size of your mattress, but there will be no problem in having a flat sheet one or even two sizes bigger as you can tuck the excess fabric under the mattress.

One important thing to remember - take into account the height of the mattress. Just like width and length, height is also important when deciding on the sheet size.

Other important details

You probably know this, but choosing high-quality bedding is very important if you want to enjoy comfort and a good rest. Especially because your skin comes in direct contact with the sheet all night. That is why we advise using linen sheets. Linen is highly breathable, moisture-wicking, and even has antibacterial properties, making it gentle to the skin and perfect for keeping your body comfortable all night.

And last, but not least, is the color. When buying a sheet, think of the bedding you will use the sheet with. Harmonious colors allow you to create a calming and pleasant result, making the bedroom and the bed itself more inviting. White is a fool-proof choice as this classic goes perfectly with any other color. Neutral greys and creams are also safe options that are easy to mix and match with brighter or intense colors. And going with the same color as the bedding will create a neat, uniform look.
