5 Things You Should Know Before Buying Bedsheets Online


For most people, purchasing bedsheets can be a daunting task.

  • What fabric should I choose?
  • What prints and patterns will compliment my bedroom decor?
  • Should I worry about thread count?
  • Can I return used bedsheets?

Worry not; in this article, I answer all your questions related to buying bedsheets online.

So, before you waste your time sifting through hundreds of care labels and claims, hear me out!

Here’s everything you need to know about investing in bedding for your home:

1.   Fabric Is Key

There are many bedsheet materials to choose from.

Polyester, silk, satin, cotton and more!

However, since the climate in India is extremely humid, selecting soft, breathable materials is essential.

I suggest opting for pure cotton. These bedsheets are airy and light, ensuring you stay calm, cool and collected throughout the night.

That’s not all. Cotton bedsheets are hypoallergenic and do not cause itchy rashes.

2.   Thread Count: Does It Matter?

While thread count is a crucial factor for some, it is not the most important criteria to consider while buying bedsheets online.

But, if you still insist on assessing the thread count of bedsheets before purchasing them, anything above 140 is a measure of good quality.

In the end, though, no matter how high thread count is, fabric matters more!

3.   Choose the Correct Size

Do you know the size of your bed? Is it single, double or king-size?

This detail is essential to know before buying bedsheets online.

Yes, it may seem a bit silly, but many a time, people opt for bedsheets based on their colour and style, while something as important as bed dimensions are ignored.

So, if you want to save yourself the hassle of returning or resizing bedsheets, we recommend looking for your measuring tape first!

4.   Picking Prints & Patterns

Yes, I know. For most people out there, one factor trumps all.


Will the bedsheet compliment my bedroom decor?

Well, if you pick the right one, it sure will!

In case you have textured walls or graphic wallpaper in your room, you may want to opt for light pastel bedsheets to add a bit of contrast.

On the other hand, plain, muted walls call for bold, striking bedsheet colour combinations and patterns to add an extra bit of ‘oomph!’.

5.   Return Policy Rules

Alas, after purchasing a bedsheet online, you may realise it’s not for you.

That’s okay! Everyone makes mistakes; everyone has those days.

Thus, it’s crucial to double-check the return policy of bedsheets before investing in them.

Most companies are lenient when it comes to refunds, but I say – it’s always better to be safe than sorry!
