Bed sheets are an essential element of every bedroom, and choosing the right type of bed sheet is important for a good night's sleep. The type of bed sheets you choose can make a big difference in how comfortable you feel when you go to bed, hence ensuring you keep comfort, material and quality a top priority. Bedding trends come and go, but certain types of bed sheets are always in vogue – like floral prints, pastel tones and even stripes. However, when you go to pick out a bedsheet is it imperative to know what to keep in mind for each season. Using a heavy-weight material in the summer would inevitably leave you sweating and a light weight material for the winter might leave you shivering. Hence, knowing how to choose the right sheets for each season is key to creating a comfortable and cosy bedroom.
Garima Luthra, the Co-Founder of Vaaree has come up with a guide that will help you deep dive into the world of bed sheets and tackle each season with the right pick.
Summer Bed Sheets
During the hot summer months, it's important to choose bed sheets that are breathable and lightweight. Cotton bed sheets are perfect for summer as they are soft, lightweight and breathable. They allow air to flow freely, keeping you cool and comfortable throughout the night. Best to go with a thread count between 144 and 400 as that’s most optimal and breathable. You can also opt for linen bed sheets which are highly breathable and moisture-wicking, perfect for hot summer nights. Go for light-coloured sheets as they will keep you cool by reflecting sunlight and heat.
Fall Bed Sheets
Fall is the season of chilly mornings and nights, so it's essential to choose bed sheets that will keep you warm and cosy. Microfiber bed sheets are perfect for snuggling up and keeping you warm and toasty. Look for microfiber bed sheets with a thread count above 120 for optimal warmth. You can also opt for fleece bed sheets which are soft and warm. Another option for fall is poly cotton bed sheets which are made from a blend of cotton and synthetic fibres, making them soft and durable.
Winter Bed Sheets
For winter, woolen sheets with heavy weight are a great choice. This is the season of cold nights and so it's important to choose bed sheets that will keep you warm and cosy all night long. Another option is flannel bed sheets which are soft, warm and cosy making them perfect for snuggling up on cold winter nights. You can also go for fleece bed sheets as they are perfect for those who feel cold easily or live in colder climates.
Spring Bed Sheets
Spring is the season of new beginnings and it's a great time to refresh your bedroom with bright and colourful bed sheets. Pastel colours and floral print bed sheets will add a touch of the season to your bedroom. They are a great reflection of the spring season. You can also opt for cotton percale sheets or sateen sheets, which are luxurious and soft. They are perfect for creating a comfortable and relaxing environment.
In conclusion, choosing the right bed sheet for each season is extremely critical for sound and restful sleep. Cotton bed sheets are perfect for summer, microfiber bed sheets for fall, woolen bed sheets for winter and cotton percale sheets for spring. By keeping these tips in mind, you can create a cosy and comfortable bedroom that is perfect for every season.
