There are so many misconceptions out there about bed sheets and we’re here to set the record straight. As bed linen experts, we’ll debunk the most common ideas about luxury bedding.

  1. It’s too expensive

Just from reading the title surely, you’ve assumed that luxury bedding automatically equates to a high price.

Well, what if you found out that it’s not necessarily the case.

It’s true.

The most common beddings sold in the market are usually made of mixed fabric (cotton + rayon/ polyester etc) which is why they can be sold at a lower cost.

Some specialized bed sheets are sold at a premium because manufacturers use pure materials which involve meticulous processing procedures. By doing so, they create an improved version of the raw material without stripping off the linen’s natural properties. This allows the seller to market their bed linens at a higher price due to the increased benefits that it offers.

Prices also vary for some luxury linens. Depending on your lifestyle, this can be equivalent to a cumulative amount of what you spend on parking, drinks, or gimmicks. If you re-allocate these expenses into buying a comfortable bed sheet set which will help you sleep better at night then, you’ll be able to truly maximize your money. 

Do take note that price and value are relative to the consumer. Remember that the product you are paying for should give you equal or increased value in terms of comfort, better sleep, and more savings in the long run, among others.


  1. Expensive sheets will last a lifetime

Some may last for years but it’s not a general fact.

It essential to consider the manufacturing process and materials used in creating these luxury linens. Naturally, the more meticulous the process, the more durable it will be. There are also certain bed linens that area naturally sturdy. Bamboo, Egyptian cotton, and Pima cotton are your safe bets.

 Ideally, go for bed linens with a 200- 800 thread countto ensure maximum comfort and durability.
