Linen is for sinnin’! - What to look for when choosing bed linen. - Vaaree

Buying bed linen is never as fun as using bed linen. Oh well, that’s life! *sigh* 

However, it doesn’t have to be a not-fun process, you know? Here’s how you simplify bed linen buying!

  • Fit
  • Size matters...*wink wink* It’s important to know that not all bed sheets are of the same size. And not all mattresses are the same. Like, duhh! The depth of every mattress is different. So, a pro tip is to always check both - the bed sheet as well as the mattress.


    Take the length/breadth of your bed, add the thickness of your bed from both the sides and ensure that your bed sheet is at least 1 feet bigger than the total! With so many mattress sizes available in the market, it’s easier to find your perfect bed sheet size by looking at size charts.

    Size is an important factor to consider and so, at Vaaree, we’ve added ‘size charts’ to each of our products so it’s easier for you to make your decision.

  • Thread Count 
  • Thread count refers to the number of threads per square inch. Technically, higher quality bed sheets tend to have a higher thread count. We only list certified manufacturers on our website to ensure that you get exactly what you are promised!

    The higher the thread count, the softer the quality of the fabric. In Northern regions in India, where the climate is chilly, bed sheets with higher thread count provide warmth. 

  • Fabric
  • Well, this is a basic, yet extremely important, aspect you need to check. 100% cotton is usually the best fabric since it makes the bed sheet super soft and smooth.

    Cotton is the most breathable fabric. That’s especially important in India owing to the higher humidity. You also get bed sheets made of polyester, bamboo, synthetic material etc. 

  • Design 
  • This is often the easiest call to make. If it looks good, you buy it, if it doesn’t you won’t care about the bedsheets other qualities. Good Looking beds aren’t only for your eyes. Have you ever taken your friends on a tour of your home and been embarrassed by your bedsheets?

    If that’s never happened to you, good for you. But it has happened to everyone in our team. Which is why we keep a close eye on global trends - colours, prints, designs, fabrics - and curate collections for you! From traditional Indian florals to classic California stripes, we’ve got them all!

    And if you don’t trust your taste in bedsheet prints and you’re about to welcome a guest to your bedroom, we suggest you go with either Florals or stripes. Classics are hard to go wrong with, you know.

    Ok, that’s the end of this article. If you found it boring, please take a nap in a bed with amazing bed linen. ;)
