Summer is just around the corner, and the temperature outside is definitely showing it!

Quick Look at Our Top 6 Picks

And although you may want to catch the rays outside, you don’t want to overheat while you’re trying to sleep at night.

Cool bed sheets are a staple during the summertime, and can enhance the quality of sleep you get during those hot months!

Not only are cool bed sheets great for the warmer part of the year, but they’re perfect for those hot sleepers that wake up in night sweats or have interruptive sleep because they overheat throughout the night.

Qualities of Cooling Bed Sheets

Cooler bed sheets have a couple of qualities in common that may help on your search for a cooler sleep at night.

  • Fabric: While looking for the best cooling bed sheets, most bed sheets are either made of bamboo (rayon) or microfiber. Lately microfiber bed sheets are increasing popularity, but they’re especially known for their moisture-wicking properties, which is great for those night sweaters. Bamboo sheets are also known for their silk-like feels cool to touch, and their breathability.
  • Texture: This can play an important role in keeping the temperature down. Sateen weaves bring a silk-like feeling to fabrics that feel cooler on the skin.
  • Weight: Look for a lighter sheet! Durability does not always go hand in hand with the weight of a sheet. Thinner sheets are a great option for summertime, or if you’re just looking to keep the temperature down so you can sleep through the night.

Luxury doesn’t come in the form of diamond rings or designer clothes, it’s an adjustable bed to watch TV without having to sit up.

While there are also many other benefits to having an adjustable bed for those that have had surgery, chronic pain, or other health complications that affect sleep, it can be stressful when looking for bed accessories such as bed sheets.

Quick Look At Our Top Picks:

Does having an adjustable bed change the sheets you buy?

Certainly! Each sheet is not made equally, and serves different purposes. Now imagine you adjust your bed, and your fitted sheet pops off the corner of your mattress. After you invested good money in your adjustable bed, I’m sure the last thing you want is a sheet that doesn’t quite fit your luxurious bed.

There are qualities you can look for while on the hunt for the best sheets for adjustable beds.

  • Elasticity: Make sure you’re buying sheets that have the elastic all the way around the fitted bed sheet. Sometimes sheets just have them on the corners, and with the movement your mattress endures, you don’t want to bargain whether or not these will last the night.
  • Deep Pocketed Sheets: Many times, when sheets don’t stay on your bed it’s because they aren’t deep enough for the mattress your trying to fit them on. If you have a thicker mattress or trouble keeping sheets on throughout the night, look for deep pocketed sheets that fit 14-inch-deep mattresses and up.
  • Quality: While this may seem obvious, it’s important to decide the quality of sheet you’re in the market for. Are you looking for a microfiber or a cotton sheet? Each fabric, thread count, and weave has different qualities. Ultimately, it depends on your preferences as well as the reason you wanted an adjustable bed. Sheets can enhance the sleeping experience you’re looking for!

  • Is sheet thickness important to you? Are these sheets for a certain season?
  • How thick is your mattress? Look for deep pocked sheets if you have a mattress topper.

Each part of your bed is important for your sleep, and sheets are a chance to enhance your sleeping experience. Set yourself up for the best sleeping experience!

  • A privacy policy. Most companies have a privacy policy to assure customers’ information is protected and safe. If this isn’t stated directly on their website, you can call and ask about it.

After a long day at work, coming home to a Tempur-Pedic adjustable bed is the best way to wind down from a stressful day.

Nothing ruins the moment like your fitted shit coming off the corner of bed in the middle of the night.

Sheets should stay on your bed, no matter what mattress you have. Not only do your sheets have to withstand your adjustable bed, but Tempur-Pedic mattresses tend to be thicker than most mattresses, making the hunt for the best sheets even harder.

Mattresses are a large investment, and the sheets you put on them are apart of that purchase. They can make or break your sleeping experience.

Quick Look at Our Top Picks

What Kinds of Sheets to Look For

Never, fret. We’re here to help with a list of the best sheets for Tempur-Pedic beds. First, it’s important to know what qualities to look for in sheets when you have a Tempur-Pedic adjustable bed.

  • Cool sheets: Tempur-Pedic mattresses tend to be more hot. Since a lot of them are made out of memory foam, they trap in heat and make it harder to let air flow throughout the mattress. Sheets that are more lightweight, and have cooler qualities like a sateen weave or rayon fabric, will really help keep you more comfortable throughout the night.
  • Deep pocketed sheets: Deep pockets in a fitted sheet will make sure that sheets stay on your mattress without a problem. Tempur-Pedic beds tend to be thicker, with many different layers, and an uncomfortable sheet fit will mean an uncomfortable night’s sleep.
  • Good elastic on the sheet: Elastic is an important part of the fitted sheet when having an adjustable bed. Ensuring the elastic is of great quality, will make sure that your sheets don’t fall of the corners throughout the night. Make sure the elastic goes all the way around the fitted sheet as well!

Quick Look at Our Top 6 Picks

On top of this, there are many different bed sheet materials out there, and if you’re not a textile expert, these waters can be confusing to navigate through.

Popular Bed Sheet Materials

  • Cotton: This is probably the most common material for bed sheets, although the material cotton is a broad category. There are different types of cotton that impact the quality, feel, price, and texture of the sheet. Some of these include: flannel, percale, jersey knit, sateen, organic cotton, Egyptian cotton, and Pima cotton.
  • Microfiber: This material is becoming increasing popular for its similarities to cotton and its inexpensive qualities. It synthetic, so it is made from chemicals, but it’s incredibly soft, which makes it a great bed sheet.
  • Bamboo: Although many products claim they are 100% bamboo, these sheets are usually made of rayon. Sheets actually made of bamboo, involve an incredibly chemical process and the product would most likely be really stiff and rough.

We’ve listed a few examples for each bed sheet material: 

1. Cotton

California Design Den Cotton Sheets

These are a staple if you’re looking for a good set of cotton bed sheets. These sheets are crisp, like the kind you’d find at a luxurious hotel, and 100% cotton. While they do have a lower thread count of 400, this keeps the sheets cooler, and does not speak to the quality of the sheets. The way these sheets are made, by skilled artisans by hand, is more of a testament to their quality than the thread count.

With a double-napped finish on both sides, these sheets have an ultra-velvety feel and are heavyweight. If you’re looking for a must have staple during the colder seasons, these are great quality sheets that are comparable to more expensive designer flannel sheets.

As you can see, bed sheet material can great affect the overall quality of a bed sheet. With all the different weaves, thread counts, sheet weights, and textures, it can be hard to just choose a bed sheet based on its material. That’s only part of the equation!

Other Important Factors in Addition to Material

  • Feeling: Now this may seem very obvious, but different bed sheet materials can take on the same feeling! Are you looking for an extremely silky sheet? Or do you want more of a crisp sheet? A silky sheet can be made out of bamboo, cotton with a sateen finish, or even microfiber! Crispy sheets are usually made out of cotton, but there are still microfiber sheets that can take on this quality.
  • Look: Does the look of your bed sheets matter to you? While a jersey-knit sheet is incredibly comfy, they are definitely not most luxurious looking sheets. Is the finish of the sheet important to you? Sateen weave is very popular for those who like the silky look, but if that’s not for you there are plenty of other options.
  • Price: This might be the most important factor into your purchase, as price can narrow down your options more easily. This doesn’t mean you have to compromise on quality, though! There are plenty of good quality sheets for under $50 that are long lasting and durable.

While the material of your bed sheets is important, it’s not everything. Look at the other qualities of the sheets to fully make your decision. At the end of the day, the sheets that keep you relaxed and sleeping at night, are the sheets you want. And don’t settle! If you keep the packaging intact and call customer service, most sheets are returnable even after washing or using.

Also, pay close attention to the washing instructions. For a lot of sheets, it is recommended to wash on machine cold gentle, and then tumble dry low. However, some sheets do not need to be dried all the way to avoid shrinking, and other sheets need to be taken out of the dryer right away to avoid wrinkles. Your sheets are the window to your sleeping experience, so don’t be afraid to invest in them!

Climbing into bed at night and letting the feeling of soft sheets touch your skin as you bundle up for a restful night’s sleep is the definition of pure relaxation. You’ve had a long day, and you deserve to slip into a bed that feels like you’re falling asleep in the clouds. It’s your “me” time. Your bed, and all that comes with it, creates the environment for your night of sleep.

Quick Look At Our Top 10 Picks

Knowing the best bed sheets for you, can greatly improve your sleep! Whether it’s regulating temperature, hypoallergenic, material preference, or budget friendly, there are sheets out there that will fit your needs.

What’s there to know about sheets?

When it comes to sheet sets, there is an endless amount of options ranging from thread count, type of fabric, weave choice, and price range. Even if you want the best of the best, it’s hard to look past the hefty price tag that comes with it. We’ll discover whether it’s really necessarily to pay a lot of money for the best bed sheets for your bed.

First, let’s take a look at all the different features to choose from when buying your next bed sheets.

Does thread count matter?

I’m sure you’ve seen the ads for sheets with high thread counts, claiming that best quality is relative to the higher thread count. While thread count does matter, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the highest thread count is always the best.

Thread count is the amount of horizontal and vertical threads per square inch. For a general rule of thumb, good thread counts are anywhere from 200-800. Unless the sheet is made of good quality fabric or weave, you shouldn’t even be paying extra for thread counts over 400.

Thread count also isn’t directly relative to quality. Just because a sheet may have a 200-thread count, doesn’t mean it’s extremely poor quality. The way the sheet is finished, as well as it’s weave, can still make an extremely soft sheet with a small thread count.

Different Kinds of Weaves

Each sheet has a different kind of weave, but this doesn’t mean it’s necessary to know this in order to find the best bed sheet. Keep these weaves in mind, so you can make a more educated bed sheet choice.

  • Percale weave: This weave creates sheets that have more of a cool and crisp feeling. They have the same amount of threads horizontally and vertically, which makes them more durable and strong through hot washes over time. These sheets are typically great with a thread count between 200 and 400, but if you’re looking for more of a heavyweight sheet than shoot for 400 to 600.
  • Sateen weave: These sheets are more delicate than the percale sheets, but if you’re looking for more of silky feeling than these are for you. They have more thread going vertically than horizontally, which makes them more likely to come apart during the wash. To find the happy medium between softness and strength, look for a thread count between 300 and 600.

Which Fabric Do You Want?

Just like clothes, sheets can come in many different kinds of fabrics. While cotton is still the beloved choice of sheets, there are others that can decrease the price of the bed sheets and give you different kinds of benefits.

  • Cotton: Some of the best cottons are Pima, Egyptian, and Supima. They’re made of long-fiber cotton weaves that create extreme softness.
  • Flannel: You may associate these sheets with long winter nights, and that’s because it’s made combed cotton with fluffed up fibers, creating a nap that traps in body heat. Fun fact: the quality of flannel isn’t measured by its thread count but by its ounces per square yard.
  • Silk: If you’re looking for luxury, then you can’t go wrong with silk. This luxurious fiber keeps you especially cool at night, but definitely has the cost of luxury. These sheets are expensive and delicate, but will bring a cool and romantic feel to the bedroom.
  • Polyester: This fabric is man-made, which means it’s cheaper on your wallet. Usually you find polyester blended with another fabric like cotton, so it doesn’t feel as stiff and scratchy. When finely woven, polyester can be sold as microfiber and although it may not be the softest sheet, it resists stains and is very durable.
  • Bamboo: Sheets that are labeled as bamboo, are typically made out of rayon. Sheets actually made out of bamboo are usually very rough, and the process to make them involves a lot of chemicals that are not great for the environment.

What’s the Best Bed Sheets for Your Lifestyle?

Whether you’ve had a bad experience with bed sheets in the past, or you’re just looking for the perfect set for your mattress, buying bed sheets can be quite the hassle. After all, we spend a third of our lives in our beds!

Bed sheets are just as important as your mattress and your pillows to having a restful sleep. After you’ve spend hundreds, or even thousands of dollars on a mattress, you want to be topping it with a bed sheet that only enhances the large investment you’ve already made.

Let’s take a look at a couple of features you may want to consider when looking for the best bed sheets.

  • Price: How much are you willing to spend on bed sheets? Bed sheets can range from less than $20 a set to well over $100. However, this doesn’t mean you’re compromising quality just because you don’t have a bigger budget. There are many different options within each budget. What’s the highest amount you’re willing to spend on sheets?
  • Material: Are you looking for a specific kind of material? The most popular material used for bed sheets is cotton due to its versatility. There’s jersey knit cotton, Egyptian cotton, pima cotton, flannel, and more. All of these cottons range in quality, price, and texture. There are microfiber sheets like polyester that are great for those that need hypoallergenic sheets or have a cheaper budget. Bamboo, or rayon sheets are great for hot sleepers that like a silky feeling sheet.
  • Temperature: Are you a hot sleeper? Is your mattress already causing you to overheat at night? Or, do you prefer a cozy bed with more weight on you? Are you buying sheets for a particular season or year-round? Many sheets have incorporated cooling and breathable properties into them such as premium cotton like Egyptian and pima, as well as more inexpensive microfiber sheets and rayon sheets. Go to winter sheets are always flannel sheets, as well as any other heavyweight sheet.
  • Use: Now it’s easy to say that sheets are meant for sleeping, but if we’re being honest, sometimes you end up watching a movie in your bed and want some popcorn while you enjoy the show. How often are you in your bed? Do you eat in your bed? Do you own pets that go into your bed a lot? The use of your bed goes hand in hand with the type of sheet you should be looking for. Certain cottons and microfibers are more durable than others, and may be more stain resistant as well.
  • Look: While bed sheets are largely based on feeling, that doesn’t mean look has nothing to do with the bed sheets you choose. Do you want the luxury look of silk sheets? Are you looking for a specific color of sheets? Or, does the look of your sheets not matter?

At the end of the day, the best bed sheets for you, may not be the best bed sheets for your friend. Just like a mattress, bed sheets are heavily up to preference. Some may enjoy a heavyweight and cozier bed sheet, while others may prefer a silky one that keeps them cooler at night. Some may prefer a crisp and clean feeling sheet, while others like the jersey knit t-shirt softness.

It’s important to keep in mind that even though some bed sheets are considered more luxurious than others, you can most likely find a best sheet you’re looking for in your price range. A bed sheet is an important accessory to your bed, so don’t settle on one that doesn’t give you the best night’s sleep. Finding the best bed sheet for you is finding the best night’s sleep. Happy sleeping!
