How well do you sleep in the summer?

It is no surprise that you typically sleep better when your skin is slightly cooled.  You’re more likely to detour restlessness and get a better night’s sleep if your body is cooled as compared to overheated.  The types of sheets you use play a large factor in ensuring you achieve that cool sensation come bedtime.  Factors such as thread count, material fiber and sheet color all come into play when deciding what to use during the hotter months of the year.  For example, material that is designed to wick moisture away from your skin during your regular work-out may instead trap moisture and heat should it be used as sheets.  For more summertime cooling tips, check out The Best Kind of Sheet Sets for Summer Months by Lorna Hordos to ensure you wake up cool and refreshed each and every day.headboardupholsteredwayfair

How to Keep Fitted Sheets on Your Bed

One of the most frustrating things to wake up to, whether in the morning or middle of the night, is when the fitted sheet on your bed has come off. It interrupts your sleep, makes your bed a mess, and leaves you feeling uncomfortable.

Tips for Fitted Sheets

I gathered the linen experts in our office up and asked them how to solve this annoying problem. Here are their answers:

“Besides lying still the entire night, there aren’t many things you can do to ensure a low-quality fitted sheet stays on your bed. Invest in a quality sheet with a fully-elasticized, thick hem, and you’ll be surprised at how well it stays on.”

“Make sure the pocket depth of the sheet fits your mattress. Measure your mattress thickness and write that number down in your pocket calendar, or make a note in your phone…somewhere that you can check when shopping. Sheets come with varying depths, and getting the wrong one will make your life miserable. Don’t forget to factor in any bed toppers, such as feather or memory foam pads. That extra inch could be the difference!”

“You’ve heard the saying…”Buy quality, and you’ll only cry once.” It might not be pleasant to spend over $100 on a set of sheets, but the dividends will pay themselves. Generally, but not always, expensive sheets will have better elastic on the fitted sheet. Don’t be afraid to return sheets until you’re satisfied with how they fit.”

All of the sheets sold on AffluenceHomeFashions.com feature fully-elasticized fitted sheets, with thick, industry-best elastic, ensuring your sheets stay in place until you take them off. Check out our featured sheets, our 1000 thread count, for gorgeous colors and unsurpassed quality.

Folding a Fitted Sheet

Folding a fitted sheet is one of the most frustrating things in the world. Not only, does it rarely resemble its original form, but by the time you’re done ‘trying’ to fold it, you have created more wrinkles than you started with! It seems simple enough to match the edges together and neatly fold everything into place, but if you are anything like the rest of society this simple task is extremely complicated. Check out this great online tutorial, courtesy of Living on a Dime.com’s Jill Cooper, for a step-by-step demonstration on how to fold a fitted sheet. Good luck!

Ensuring Sheet Longevity

Washing your sheets every week or so does not guarantee their longevity.  On the contrary, it can weaken the quality if not done correctly.  All too often, consumers believe washing sheets every week with detergent will keep them fresh and clean looking; however, the type and amount of detergent you use can be a big factor in keeping your sheets feeling smooth and silky.  For example, you might already be using an unnecessary amount of soap and not rinsing properly causing a residue build-up and cotton breakdown.  Ultimately, these things can cause the fabric to dull in color, lessen softness and even decrease absorbency.  This helpful article from the Washington Post, “Tips on Buying and Caring for Sheets, Towels, Pillows and Other Linens” provides insightful details on what you need to keep in mind when caring for your sheets to ensure long-lasting durability.you need to keep in mind when caring for your sheets to ensure long-lasting durability.your sheets to ensure long-lasting durability.

Health Benefits of Luxury Bedding

Luxury bedding offers more benefits than just a good night’s sleep.  In addition to comfort, high-quality sheets provide for several health benefits including fewer wrinkles, softer skin, fewer allergies, and sounder sleep.  Low-quality sheets can lead to skin irritation, itching and irritability which can all be attributed to your overall skin texture, while thicker, higher-quality sheets allow for the blockage of tiny allergens and as a result make you less susceptible to hidden allergies.   Also, the high-quality fabric used to make luxury sheeting helps regulate temperature due to its lightweight texture and airiness alleviating middle of the night sweats and allowing for a sounder sleep.  Check out this great article from the blog Painter Mommy Dawn entitled “Healthy Benefits that Come Along with Sleeping On Luxury Bedding and Sheets” for more information!
