When you nestle down into bed for the night, it’s your sheets that are actually touching your skin, so if there’s one way to make your bed feel extra luxurious it’s by investing in some quality sheets.
While some bedding can be sized up, sheets should be bought according to the size of your mattress, e.g. single bed sheets for a single bed, queen sheets for a queen bed, etc. We have bed sheets for sale in all sizes, including:
You also need to consider the depth of your mattress for your fitted sheet. Standard sheets are typically 33cm to 38cm deep, though we tend to stock sheets from 38cm to 40cm deep. These will comfortably fit a standard and possibly pillow top mattress. If you have a pillow top and bottom mattress, however, you will need a deeper fitted sheet.
The two sizes to fit deeper mattresses are:
- Mega sheets - These are 50cm deep and will fit a single pillow top mattress
- Deluxe sheets - These are 60cm deep and will fit pillow top and bottom mattresses
This means that to get sheets that fit your bed, you might need to buy a mega king size sheet set, not just a king size sheet set.
1000 thread count sheets
1000 thread count sheets are extremely popular, however there are two different price points in this thread count: a cotton option and a ‘cotton rich’ option. ‘Cotton rich’ means polyester cotton, which is a way to make these sheets less expensive while still having a higher thread count.
If you’re looking for 1000 thread count sheets, we recommend the Linen House Lifestyle Vaucluse Mega Sheet Set Range. These are 100% cotton 1000 thread count sheets. They offer a heavy feel with beautiful luster and touch.
Bamboo is a hypoallergenic fabric, and doesn’t need a high thread count to achieve that soft and silky feel. Bamboo cotton is sustainable and naturally sourced. It has high breathability and is moisture wicking for your comfort. If you’re looking for bamboo sheets, we recommend the Indulgence Silky Smooth 400THC Bamboo Cotton Sheet Set Range, or the Linen House Lifestyle Nara 400THC Bamboo Cotton Mega Sheet Set Range.
Egyptian cotton sheets
Egyptian cotton makes for a soft and crisp feeling sheet. We recommend the Logan and Mason Platinum Hotel Grande 400THC Egyptian Cotton Sateen Sheet Set Range for a soft and durable sheet set for everyday use, available in a range of colours.
Flannelette sheets, sometimes called flannel sheets, are typically used in winter. These are a weighted product, measured as grams per square meter (GSM) rather than thread count.
Microfibre sheets are a polyester blend, ideal for commercial use like in Airbnbs or Stayz rentals. They are budget-friendly and durable, able to hold up to regular laundering. We recommend the Bambury Commercial Chateau Polyester Cotton Sheet Range.
Sateen sheets are not satin, but are a cotton that is made soft, silky and smooth through the weave. We recommend the Logan and Mason Platinum Hotel Grande 400THC Egyptian Cotton Sateen Sheet Set Range
Most of the sheets we carry are soft, but for the softest sheets we recommend the Bambury Bed T Cotton Jersey Sheet Set Range. This product is like sleeping in your favourite t-shirt, and is cool in summer and cosy in winter.
Hotel sheets need to be comfortable but also suitable for high volume turnover and constant laundering. We recommend the Actil First Line Cotton Sheet Set Range.
Any high thread count, high end sheet set would qualify as a luxury sheet, but linen sheets are the most popular luxury option at the moment. While these aren’t the sort of sheets you’d find in a hotel, they are luxurious, premium sheets. Our most popular choices are the MM Linen Laundered Linen Sheet Set Range.
We stock sheets in a huge range of colours. The most popular are:
We have sheets in a range of leading brands, such as:
What is a fitted sheet vs a flat sheet?
Sheets come in two different styles. Fitted sheets feature elasticised edges and go over the mattress, underneath you. The elastic prevents it from slipping off the mattress. Flat bed sheets or top sheets are not elasticised and go over you, beneath your doona, coverlet or bedspread.
How are sheets sold?
There are three main ways to buy sheets:
- Separates (so you could buy just a fitted sheet)
- Fitted sheet combos (a fitted sheet with pillowcase/s)
- Sheet sets (a fitted sheet, flat sheet, and pillowcase/s)
In fitted sheet combos and sheet sets, single beds (including king single and long single beds) come with one pillowcase while double and above come with two.
Do you sell separates?
We sell separates, combos and sheet sets. For separates, check out the Linen House Lifestyle Hotel Augusta 500THC Cotton Sateen Fitted or Flat, or the Logan and Mason Platinum Hotel Grande 400THC Egyptian Cotton Sateen Fitted or Flat. For a fitted sheet combo, try the Bambury Indulgence Brighton 250THC Cotton Fitted Sheet Combo.
What are the best bed sheets in Australia? What are the highest quality sheets?
The best or highest quality sheets are quite subjective as it depends on what you’re after and what your needs are. Some people are guided by thread count while others prefer a weightier product. We tend to look at premium composition to determine luxury, so we would suggest that a 100% cotton or linen product would be the height of luxury.
What thread count is best for sheets?
Thread count is all about personal preference. Anything above 400 is considered luxe, however the higher you go the heavier the sheet, so you really have to like the feel of a heavy sheet if you want higher thread count.
