Bed sheets vary in price depending on the types of sheets that are being purchased, the brand of the sheets and factors like the thread count or type of textiles that the sheets are being created from.
While shopping for bed sheets, many customers are unsure of the factors that they should look for and the features that are necessary in a high quality of set of sheets, so it can be helpful to learn the features of a good set of bed sheets before determining just how much a good set of bed sheets is going to impact the wallet.
First, the customer should consider the thread count. The thread count refers to the amount of threads that are woven per square inch of the bed sheets and the higher the number, the higher the cost of the bed sheets in most cases. While shopping, customers will likely encounter thread counts of as low as one 180, up to 320 for standard sheets – which are considered the low range of bed sheets.
These types of sheet sets with this range of thread counts can be purchased for between twenty and forty dollars from leading discount department and warehouse stores. Higher thread counts, ranging between four to six hundred are considered good bed sheets and can be purchased for between sixty to one hundred dollars through leading retailers including linen stores and high end department stores.
How much should you spend on a good set of bed sheets? When buying bed sheets it’s important to consider the budget, but the customer should also realize that high quality sheets with a higher than average thread count are going to result in softer sheets, and therefore a better sleeping experience.
In addition, the higher thread count is often associated with higher durability for the sheets, meaning that the sheets are going to wash better and have less wear after many nights of sleep – and therefore require replacement less often.
When buying sheets, the customer should anticipate spending between sixty and one hundred dollars on a quality set of sheets that include a fitted sheet, flat sheet and two standard pillow cases. Having more than one set of sheets can help to extend the life of the sheets, and can be a great way to reduce the budget and replace the sheets less often by alternating the styles.
