What should I look for when I buy bed linen?
We use our bed every day of the year, and as such, it is crucial to buy bed linen that is appropriate for your individual needs, bedroom decor, and the bed that you are layering. There are a number of things to look for when purchasing your bed linen, some of which you may have never considered before. This should be a careful process, so you aren’t wasting money or time on bed linen that is unsuitable for you. Manchester Warehouse wants only the best quality and most suitable bed linen for your needs. We understand how important sleep is for everyone’s health. The unique production methods of our linen bed linen are solely implemented to achieve premium quality.
When buying bed linen, size is a significant factor to look out for. The size of your bed, whether it be a:
Buying the wrong size of bed linen will interfere with your comfort, the style of the bed, and your warmth. For example, layering a king bed with queen bed linen will create a draft while you sleep and won’t cover up the mattress properly. It won’t look visually appealing, and you’ll find yourself extremely uncomfortable during the night, especially if it’s cold. A good rule of thumb is to always opt for a size up in bed linen than what your bed size is. This would mean buying king bed linen for queen beds, super king bed linen for king beds, and so forth. This way, you can cover the bed properly to maximise comfort, warmth, and style. We provide the sizing guide page to prevent you from choosing the wrong size.
The colour of your chosen bed linen should complement the rest of your bedroom decor. Manchester Warehouse is a bed linen store that offers a wide variety of colours in bed linen, so whether you have a dark and moody, soft and neutral, or white and bright bedroom, there’s something for everyone. Choose a colour that will go with your entire bedroom or house decor. Some of the most popular colour pallets we sel include:
- Blue Bed Linen
- Black Bed Linen
- Pink Bed Linen
- Purple Bed Linen
- Green Bed Linen
- Grey Bed Linen
- Red Bed Linen
- Orange Bed Linen
- White Bed Linen
- Colourful Bed Linen
Make sure it is a colour that also inspires a sense of tranquillity and relaxation - exactly what a resting space should feel like. Alternatively, if you have a bold personality, opt for wildly contrasting tones.
Don’t take any shortcuts when it comes to the composition of your bedding. We provide various compositions such as:
- Bamboo Cotton
- Organic Cotton Bedding Linen
- Egyptian Cotton
- Polyester Blend
This is especially important for those in cooler climates where layering the bed properly is essential. A bed linen set will typically include a flat or fitted bed sheet to go around the mattress securely, followed by a flat top sheet. Then, you should choose either a quilt, duvet, or blanket to go on top, which is what provides the most warmth. Optional add-ons depending on your style and the climate include dust ruffles, comforters, coverlets and extra blankets.
Style and Trend
Finally, for the fun part, you should determine the style of bed linen you want. There are many styles out there that vary from techniques and fabrics to patterns and stitching, as well as specific designs that are made for different temperatures. Some of the most popular styles we sell include:
Consider what your current bedroom decor looks like, and base your decision on that. Is it elegant and grand? Simple and minimalist? All that’s left to do is choose a style that matches this same aesthetic!
