When creating the perfect bedding for your home we love to opt for amazing and beautiful luxury designs for the bedroom. After all, a fantastic set of luxurious sheets is the main component when making a bed. No matter whether you like to make your bed at home using a luxury bed sheet set that contains a top sheet and a fitted sheet, or prefer to buy individual flat bed sheets vs fitted sheets; both offer a comfy and relaxing night’s sleep in your home.
So, before you choose which type of bed sheets will work best for you, it is important to know what a flat sheet is used for and how can you style your bed with it.
What is a Flat Sheet?
There is no elastic at the edges of a flat sheet, also used as top white bed sheets mainly in a hotel rooms. They are used as an additional layer between your body and your blanket or duvet cover. You can place it on top of the fitted sheet when making the bed. Using hospital corners to hold your flat bedsheet in place will prevent it from rolling to the foot of the bed or getting tangled while sleeping.
How To Use Flat Bed Sheets?
A comfort layer:
Flat sheets are becoming more and more popular as a luxury layer of comfort between you and your comforter due to the increasing popularity of duvets.
Alternative of Blankets:
For a cool and comfortable night’s sleep during the warm summer days, many people substitute a luxurious flat sheet for a blanket.
Your bed should have flat sheets with decorative borders turned upside down so that when the bed is made, the decorative finishing of your beautiful sheets is exhibited to highlight your bedding.
Use as a Top Layer:
Many people use flat sheets instead of a duvet cover as the top layer. Soft and luxurious top sheets make great bed toppers that feel as good as they look.
How do you choose the right sheets for your bed?
- Make sure that the size is okay. The sheet won’t stay in place while you sleep if it is smaller than the mattress. To avoid this, measure your mattress before purchasing new bedding, and then purchase the sheets that match.
- Pick the proper weave and fabric. Buy linen and percale cloth with a 300-count if you want something durable. Buy Egyptian cotton or silk with satin fabric for luxury.
