One of the benefits of owning your own home is the enjoyment of luxury bedding during your sleep habits. Luxury bedding means different things to different people, but at least that means it’s about sleeping. The luxury bedding does not necessarily have to be expensive. It can simply be a texture, color or style.
Luxury linens come in a variety of colors and weights and you often buy them as part of complete bedding sets, comforters, pillowcases, shams and maybe even a dust ruffle.
Some people feel that silk bedding is the ultimate luxury. The natural fibers on the skin give a feeling of elegance like nothing else. Silk is definitely not something to throw in the regular cycle of the washing machine with hot water and therefore you have to worry about it more specifically.
The luxury bedding sometimes requires special maintenance
Luxury bedding for many people is satin sheets. They then claim to sleep better because when they turn or move on such leaves, they do not touch the clothing and the skin, as some of the regular leaves do. The disadvantage of some satin sheets is that they need more care.
Other people choose luxurious Egyptian cotton or Italian designer linen. The heavy cotton is sometimes used in fabric structure and to add richness. These can be the form of stripes of regular and silky textures for example. The warmth, durability and quality of the Egyptian cotton bedding means you can have luxury that does not require special treatment.
Luxury bedding is always synonymous with high quality
The luxurious bedding usually has a higher thread count. Ordinary bedding has a thread count of 180 to 200, while luxury bedding might have a thread count of over 1200. Obviously, the higher the number of threads, the more luxurious is the bedding.
Part of the enjoyment of luxury beds is the wide range of colors available. You can have bedding sets in almost every shade as you can select it from neon to white and with flowers, stripes or solid colors. Thematic bedding is also available if you want to be a bit moody with your luxury.
The luxury bedding is so stylish and modern
Some of the most frequently asked questions:
Is the thread count important?
Yes and no. The number of threads is often used as a barometer for the smoothness and durability of bedding. However, the number of threads in one square inch of the fabric is measured and it is not always that reliable. The high thread count is a factor, but the type of cotton can be more important.
Which is the best quality of cotton?
At best, your luxury Egyptian cotton sheets are 100%. The second best option is the 100% Pima cotton, which is known under the trademarked name ‘Supima’. If a label simply says “100 percent cotton,” assume that it’s about American Upland cotton – a rougher, less expensive strain. The Egyptian cotton has long fibers that are thin and expensive as well as extremely strong and durable. The pima cotton is also soft and less likely to get a rash compared to the upland cotton.
What’s better, cotton or satin?
Both. It’s a matter of taste. Cotton is a simple, dull fabric that gives a cool feel, making it meaningful and comfortable for many people because they will never be overheated while sleeping. Satin is a bit heavier and very soft, with a shiny, smooth surface, almost velvety when touched. If you’re not sure which ones you prefer, look for fabric samples for a touch test and then decide which option will best satisfy your needs.
