To say that 2020 has been a stressful year would be a serious understatement. With that in mind, it’s no surprise that many of us are looking for ways to engage in a little self-care. And while you might not be able to take that vacation you wanted to relax and recharge, you can still get the luxury hotel experience at home. The key is to pick up a set of hotel sheets you can enjoy in the comfort of your own bedroom.
Crisp yet silky smooth, hotel bedding tends to be in a class all their own. When you slide between a pair of high-end hotel sheets, you’re likely to experience an unparalleled sense of calm. So, how do you select hotel sheets that will make you feel as if you’re sleeping on a cloud at home? Read on for tips on finding bedding that’s worthy of your favorite five-star hotel.
What Makes Hotel Sheets Different?
There are few things more delightful than walking into your hotel room and finding the bed freshly made. However, it’s not just those crisp, neat corners that make hotel beds so exceptional. One of the best parts of staying in a hotel is getting to sleep in smooth, high-end sheets every night. Here are some of the ways in which hotel sheets differ from the rest of the pack:
If you want to recreate the hotel look at home, start by opting for white bedding. While the shade of your sheets doesn’t affect their quality, people tend to perceive white sheets as being clean and fresh. Maybe it’s the fact that white sheets appear freshly laundered, or perhaps they simply remind people of sleeping on a cloud. Whatever the reason, white bedding remains synonymous with five-star luxury.
Hotel bedding tends to be made from high-quality materials. In fact, many of the world’s top hotels pride themselves on offering Egyptian cotton sheets and towels in every room. Along with being highly breathable, Egyptian cotton is moisture wicking making it a great option for those with allergies or sensitive skin. Both sateen and percale are popular choices in hotel bedding; however, percales win high marks because they feature a more open weave that allows air to circulate.
Think high-end hotel sheets always feature higher thread counts? On the contrary, many luxury hotels opt for sheets with around 300 threads per square inch. According to textile experts, fitting more than 800 threads in a square inch of material is simply not possible, and companies that claim to sell 1500 thread count sheets are liking twisting two or three strands of thread together. The end result is rougher bedding that’s more likely to pill and tear.
