One Step Closer to a Good Night's Sleep: Choose the Best Sheets for You

How well you sleep can determine how the rest of your day goes. The mattress you use is important, but after that, you need to find the best sheets for you. There are a number of things to take into consideration. Here are just a few.

Thread Count

The thread count is used to help measure the smoothness and durability of the sheets. If you want sheets that will last longer and hold up against frequent washing, look for a higher thread count. If smoothness doesn't matter to you, getting a lower thread count will work.

Cotton Quality

If you appreciate cotton sheets, you will want to know what type of cotton is the best quality. Egyptian cotton is the top-of-the-line cotton and pima cotton is second. The higher quality cotton has fibers that last longer and are extremely strong. Pima cotton is also soft and has less pills than lower quality cotton.

Percale or Sateen options

Percale is plain and has a matte weave that gives you a crisp, cool feeling. It is great for people who get hot overnight. Sateen is a bit heavier, but also very soft and has a smooth finish. There is no one better than the other, it simply depends on what you prefer in terms of touch and appearance.


No matter what you are purchasing, price always matters. You will want to think about your budget and consider the options. If you are buying a set of sheets that you will use on a regular basis, you might want to splurge and go with something more expensive that will be durable and last a long time. If you are getting a spare set, a set for the guest room, or something for the kids, it is easier to go with a cheaper synthetic.

Once you find sheets to go on a mattress you already enjoy, you will get a better night of sleep on a regular basis. Sheets go a long way to making you comfortable and the right set can last through years of good nights.
