What your guests sleep on is very important, just as important as the mattress. So when you’re looking at linens there are a few things you want to keep in mind. Thread count, for example, has typically been held to a high standard, the higher your thread count the better (softer) the sheets. This statement is kind of true but another factor to take into consideration, one that may be even more significant, is the kind of cotton used. Which brings us to our next item, be mindful of what your sheets are made of. 100 percent Egyptian cotton is the best of the best when it comes to bed linens. Pima is another grade of cotton that is a step down from Egyptian, but still very smooth. One last tip on the linens, opt for something with a poly blend since they tend to last a little longer.
