What Houzz contributors are saying:
What are some signs of quality to look for in sheets? Price is not an indicator of quality — it’s what the sheets are made from that’s important. Long-staple cotton is generally considered the best. It gives sheets strength and longevity, and means they’ll last for years.You should also do the “touch test” and assess how sheets feel in your hand. Although this won’t tell you about a sheet’s quality, it will help you decide if the weave and weight are appealing. Linen sheets, by default, will feel more textured, but over time and with laundering, they will become softer.Tip: When it comes to sheets, maintenance is just as important a consideration as softness. If you wash and dry your bed linens in a machine, make sure the sheets can handle it.
While you cannot go wrong with a classic white, as mentioned, you’ll likely be rotating your sheet sets from week to week, so the bed is an excellent place to add a bit of variety with color and pattern.Your turn: What are your non-negotiables for your bedding?
