Rest easy with fitted bed sheets
The days of creating perfect hospital corners with flat bedsheets are long behind many people who have switched to fitted bed sheets. These elastic-edged sheets are designed to give a neat finish every time by stretching perfectly across a mattress without any lumps, bumps or wrinkles. Easy care fitted sheets don't even require ironing, and there are waterproof fitted sheets that are ideal for a potty training toddler.
The perfect fit
Fitted bed sheets come in a variety of sizes to suit every bedroom. There are tiny sheets suitable for Moses baskets and cots, with slightly larger versions for toddler beds. Standard single fitted sheets come in a rainbow of colours and materials to suit every type of interior, from a child's first ‘big' bed to a grownup spare room.
Double, king and super king fitted sheets offer the greatest time-saving benefit, as it can be hard to change the bedding set on such a large mattress. It's handy to check the depth of a mattress before choosing a fitted bed sheet, as some are deeper than others and require a deep fitted sheet, to avoid the sheet pulling up at the corners.
Cotton, silk or polyester?
Cotton remains a popular choice for bedding due to the breathability of the material. 400 thread Egyptian cotton will provide a super soft sleeping experience, while silk and linen remain popular for those who want a luxury feel to their bedroom. Alternatives like brushed cotton and flannel are great for children's rooms where comfort and durability are the priority.
Jersey sheets suit a modern room, where the stretchy material comes in a variety of stone marl finishes, suited to industrial themed bedroom trends. Deciding which material to choose is even easier when bought as a complete six piece bedding set, so it's guaranteed that everything will work nicely together.
