How to choose bedding:  useful tips
How to choose bedding: useful tips

Tip #1: Choose the right size 
Many people know that there are several types of bed linen sizes: single, one and a half (150x210 - 160x220), double (175x210 - 200x220), euro or so-called "kingsize" (200x220 - 220x240). There may be different sizes of pillowcases - 50x70 or 70x70. In some sets you can find pillowcases of both sizes, but it is worth paying attention to this nuance, so that later you do not face the problem when the linen is not suitable for the size.
Tip #2: Pay attention to quality 
Bedding should let air pass through, "breathe", and, excuse me, absorb sweat. It is better to choose linen from natural fabrics, such as silk, linen or cotton. You need to pay attention to how durable the material is - bed linen needs frequent washing. It is better if the fabric is dense, otherwise it will tear after a few washes. The density of the material can be assessed by eye - the sparsity of fibers can be seen immediately.
Tip #3: Choose your bedding material 
The most popular raw material for bedding today is cotton. Fabrics made of cotton, depending on the technology of weaving fibers, can be different: calico, sateen, batiste. calico is a good material for home textiles, as it is a durable and wear-resistant fabric, which has a relatively small price. Linens made of batiste, as a rule, are used for "special" occasions, it is not intended for constant use, as after 20 washings it thins. Satin is a durable, beautiful fabric with a slight sheen.
Tip #4: Inspect the seams 
Inspect the linen - duvet cover or pillowcase - from the wrong side. Quality linen should be stitched with a special double stitch, and the edges are hidden inside. Untreated edges - a sign of low-quality goods. Threads, which stitched linen, should be strong and selected in the tone of the material. Lingerie should be sewn from a single piece of cloth and do not have in the middle of the seams. If the set has embroidery or ruffles, they should also be of high quality and not scratch the skin.
Tip #5: Choose colors and patterns 
Today, bed linens are presented in such an assortment of colors and prints that it is not easy to choose one. When choosing the color scheme of the set, take into account the dominant colors in the bedroom - ideally, if the bed linen will be in harmony with the color of curtains and wallpaper.
Tip #6: Evaluate the coloration of the fabric 
Pay attention to how bright the pattern is. Too saturated coloring can be washed away in just a couple of washes. Smell the linen - the fabric should smell like a new textile, and a strong odor of dye indicates poor quality, and the linen can fade very quickly. Compare the intensity of coloring - from the front and back side it should be almost the same. In addition, the maximum wash temperature indicated on the label is also an indicator of the quality of the dyes. If the laundry can withstand a temperature of 60 degrees, it means that the dye is stable.
