The Best Sheets for Your Bed
So instead today I am sharing a post all about the very best sheets I have found, which I thought with the holidays and holiday guests coming soon, this would be a great time to talk about these things. After years of attempting to find sheets I loved at discount stores, I finally gave up and decided to indulge in some really great (according to the reviews) sheets. When we moved into our new house, I upgraded my bed with a new mattress and paired it with new bedding, and a new mattress pad, new comforter set, even bed pillows–everything (all the sources are at the end of the post). It has been divine, I even splurged on 700-thread count sheets that I’d read were amazing. Today I thought I’d share what I purchased and my impressions because actually, I liked some of the other sheets that cost less almost as much as the pricey ones.
Knowing I wanted to treat us to new, decadent sheets I went directly to the mothership of all things bedding–Pottery Barn. I had a gift card to use, and I waited until they had a sale and then ordered the 700 count sheet set in white. I had them monogrammed, of course 🙂
These sheets are lovely, they are an excellent quality cotton and quite soft. They do wrinkle (I had to iron them just to get them to the point they are in this picture) but they feel very nice and are comfortable to sleep in. If I had guests coming, I’d be proud to put them in these sheets. I think they will last for quite a long time, which is also worth considering. If you want to treat yourself, these are definitely the sheets to get.
The interesting thing was, I found that I kind of preferred the sheets I had previously, especially the pillowcases. They were just a little softer, which I found more comfortable. The sheets I’d been using were the basic Pottery Barn ones, and while I have had them for several years, this pair here is the closest I found to them. I feel like the older ones are a little softer, but the repeated washing over the years may have just broken them in more. Speaking of washing sheets, you know we love our Tyler Detergent for sheets and towels, not to mention this always tops our gift guide each year, it is a little luxury that is a very nice touch.
I have two other sets of sheets I want to share with you. In looking around at reviews, and asking for recommendations this brand got rave reviews. They are a bit more expensive but they have a large following.
I also wanted to share these sheets, the 700 count percale, which are the ones we always use on our guest room bed. These are a sateen finish, and while not organic they are crisp and cool and don’t wrinkle. You can watch for a sale to save money, but these are among my all time favorites.
Finally, of all the pairs I purchased, this last pair is worth buying because with over 300,000 (!) reviews they are well worth the whopping $35 that the set costs. I keep these Mellanni bed sheets as a second pair, though for the last few months they have been on my daughter’s bed because she absolutely loves them. They are so very soft, and while made of microfiber (so they are not a natural material), they feel amazing. They are just about wrinkle-free, and our set is holding up great. At the price it’s worth buying an extra set for guests.
A few other items I added to upgrade our bedding this year.
I simply cannot say enough good things about this bedding set.
I took these photos in early fall, and since then I have added three euro pillows from HomeGoods which finish the bed off nicely.
