Many a time we associate good quality bedding with mainly very high thread count. However, there are many other factors that play an important role in the quality of bedding. Here is a step by step guide for newly home-owners or first-timers like yourself on how to shop for bedsheet in Singapore.


When you shop for bedding, you need to ask yourself:


  • Measurement – know your mattress’ length, width and height. As a European brand mattress may differ in size from a Singapore brand mattress.

  • Design and color –  your bedsheet is a great way to add color to your room! Opt for lighter hues to achieve an airier feel and a dark, deep color for a more sophisticated look.

  • Fabric – do I prefer to stay cool or be kept warm while I sleep? Do I have sensitive skin?

  • Weave – do I prefer crisp and cooling Percale sheets or soft and silky-looking Sateen sheets?

  • Thread count – what is the thread count for this set? Is the thread count measured by per inch² or per 10cm²? Is it made using singly-ply or multi-ply yarns?


Ultimately your choice boils down to 2 key factors:


  1. How does the bedding look in your bedroom, and

  2. does the fabric meet your personal needs

The number of thread count may not matter to some. However, it will be worthwhile to get practical bed linens that are not only pretty but comfortable to sleep on. Nevertheless, you will want to be sure that you are getting the right features for a better night’s rest.
