Statistics say that 300-325 thread count percale cotton sheets are best for providing the coldness.

Cotton bedding sets
Qualities of cotton bedding sets are as following:
- Cotton is most commonly used for making bedding sets because of its quality, it looks elegant, rich, classy, comfortable, and durable.
- Cotton bedding sets are easy to wash and maintain, these sets become softer and more comfortable when washed. Therefore, cotton bedding sets are a perfect choice.
Design of bedding sets
Design is the most important face because of its critical role. The three main aspects of the design are:
- Design for purpose
- Design for the luxury
- Design for beauty and glamour.
Design for Purpose
- Design for purpose means to design something for function i.e. easy to use, easy to put on, easy to maintain, easy to wash, and easy to take care of.
- Use a side-fed case for the pillow, they are easy to put on and remove from the pillow.
- Use a bed sheet having elastic bands on the edges because it keeps the bed cover in its place and does not let it slip.
- Tie the duvet inside the quilt from each corner, spread it uniformly throughout the quilt. Button it up and sew it if needed to keep it tightly fit inside the quilt.
- Cover the buttons to protect them from friction or sliding. It also protects the button from striking the washing machine when it is being spun for cleaning.
Design for Luxury
Good bedding sets look glamorous and classy and they should feel soft as well. Because bedding sets are designed not only for decoration but for comfort too. It should not become a hindrance to your sleep anyway.
Design for beauty and glamour
You build a house, design it to look great, and work hard on the interior. When you have done so much why not pay close attention to the bedding sets for making your bedrooms look more classy and classy. Great bedding sets give a sound sleep and enhance the features of your room too. Here is a list for making your bedding sets look extremely outstanding:
Embroidered Bedding sets
- Embroidery is something that can change the look of the bedding set at once.
- Beautiful piping makes the pillowcases look very beautiful. But don’t use too big or beaded piping otherwise it can destroy your sleep.
- Choose the color wisely, it must match the theme of your bedroom. Go for more basic colors. You can also go for color contrast, make a suitable and classic contrast, don’t just mix them up. Lighter color contrast can be more intriguing rather than the darker contrast.
Guide to bedding
Well, thread count is important but don’t just pay all your focus on thread count. Pay some attention to the quality of the thread as well. There may be some bedding sets having high thread count but bad quality so don’t get yourself deceived. First of all, go to some trusted seller, and look for fine cotton bedding sets having stronger and softer threads.
Life of bedding sets
There is no bedding set that can be used for a prolonged period. The color, texture, print, and everything fades away with time. Everything within the bedding set lasts for a specific time only. So, don’t expect to use a single set throughout life…We recommend you to replace the bedding covers and pillows once a year regularly. Quilts and comforters can last longer than bedding covers and pillow covers. Sometimes, the duvets inside the quilts become lumpy, if it happens to change them right away. The average lifetime of the bedding set is 5 years.
Keep the bedding set clean
You have a direct touch with your bedding set on a daily basis, to be more accurate 24/7. Which makes your bedding covers, pillow cover, quilts, and comforters oily and dirty. These dirty covers may have many bacterias and viruses in them, therefore washing them once a week. Duvets should be washed monthly. Also, hang your quilts and duvets in the sunshine once a week. Avoid washing them excessively. It can make the bedding sets look rough by destroying their structure.
Mix the bedding sets, don’t match.
Don’t just match every piece of the product, make a contrast and mix different styles and designs to create a perfect and elegant look. Keep the three to four bedding sets and use them in rotation. Don’t use it of the same fabrics, use a fusion i.e. cotton, linen, velvet, etc. Also, mix the different patterns to create a chic look.
Layer up the bedding
Layer up your bedding set to keep it warm or cool according to the need of weather. Use multiple lightweight layers for bedding covers, bedspreads, and quilts. Layer up to an appropriate level to create a sense of fullness and coziness.
Design the bed with pillows
Many people like a pile of pillows on their beds. You can use the matching pillows and line them up or make layers. Go for pillows with three to four different designs. You can also pair up the pillows with the quilt design.back to menu ↑
How to take care of your bedding sets?
Here is a guideline for taking care of the bedding sets…
- Read all the instructions carefully mentioned on the packing of the bedding set. Each one needs cares differently. Save the instructions label at a safe place for later use.
- Follow the general guidelines, wash it according to the fabric. For example, linens are washed in cold or lukewarm water. They are washed gently, not crushed, hung to dry in the air. We recommend you use a mild detergent and avoid using bleach.
- Don’t put the bedding sets in the spinner to spin the water. Hang them in the air to dry. Don’t overdry the sets. Once the bedding sets are dried, fold them right away and press them with your hand to remove the wrinkles.
- Buy extra matching pillow cover because the pillow covers wear out soon and need to be changed more often. You can iron the pillow to get a fresh and wrinkle-free look. Also, change the pillowcases twice a week in order to avoid the dirt disturbing the texture of the pillowcase.
- Use 3-4 bedding sets in rotation. Keep the one on your bed and the others cleaned in the storage room. Also change the bedding sets regularly, especially the bedding covers and pillowcases.
- If you see any lumps in your bedding set, don’t wash it with water, go for dry cleaning instead.
- Take care if there is any stain on any of the elements of the bedding set. If you accidentally spill something, don’t wait to get dry wash it right away and let it dry before using it again. Keep the washed/clean bedding sets at a dry storage place.
