If your bed is supposed to be a haven than I believe that sheets are the soft feathers that help you weave your nest. Comfortable sheets cradle you the minute you hop into bed and are meant to elicit that “aahhhh, I love my bed” reaction. As an interior designer and design expert on HGTV’s “Small Space, Big Style”, people often ask me "What’s the deal with sheets and the thread count?" They feel as if it’s a secret society of those in the know but I’m here to debunk the mystery. Here’s your primer. “Thread Count” is the most important place to begin; it’s simply means the number of threads per square inch. A higher thread count will always be the softest sheet. EGYPTIAN cotton is the highest quality, giving you the most luxurious fabric and feel. SUPIMA is long, consistent staple cotton, made in the USA, it’s soft and durable. SATEEN (not to be confused with satin) has a stitch of four over, one under placing the most threads on the surface making it extremely soft. Ok, come on, four stitches over one… who cares, you want to know are you gonna love hopping into bed!
I’ve put together a list of what I believe to be the ultimate in sheet luxury, feel, style, and elegance. A quick tip to maximize your gorgeous sheets once you get them is to get a good mattress pad. It’s the unsung hero in this comfy sheet game plan and the least sexy layer of the bedding equation but super important. You can have the most fantastic sheets in the world but if you’re feeling the top of the mattress through the sheets you’ll lose the entire effect. A good mattress pad will absolutely add to your comfort level.
