Buying Guide For Fitted Sheets

Fitted Sheets

Fitted Sheets, also known as fitted bed sheets, is simply a sumptuous bed sheet, with elastics attached to its all four corners so that users can easily install without making any efforts. Instead of corners, elastics are stitched around the base; these fitted sheets are known as shower cap design fitter sheets. 

Fitted sheets can be purchased both with and without other bedding sets to add up to the luxury appeal of your room. Fitted sheets come with high-quality material that is both soft and comfy, along with perfect finishing, which gives these an opulent quality look.

Types Of Fitted Sheets

► Deep Fitted Sheets

25 cm Fitted Sheets

Nowadays, more profound and large mattresses are precedent choices due to their comfort level, while some prefer using a mattress topper to feel an upgraded sleeping experience. A regular fitted sheet will be of no use in both situations, and it will not fit your mattress size properly. It is here where a deep-fitted sheet comes in handy.

A deep fitted sheet is of the exact dimensions as a standard fitted sheet but a prolonged drop that helps to tie it properly with your deep mattress or a  mattress with a topper. The depth of deep fitted sheets is 25 cm.

► Extra Deep Fitted Sheets

40 CM

There is not too much difference between a deep fitted sheet and an extra deep fitted sheet. The only variation is of the drop length. Extra Deep Fitted Sheets come with more length drop, so they help tie the mattress more efficiently and more perfectly. Try measuring the drop of your mattress to know which one to buy.

The extra deep fitted sheets come with a depth of 40 cm, covering your deep mattress perfectly.

Benefits Of Using Fitted Sheets

Mattresses are expensive, and repurchasing these every few months or every year will give your pocket a hard time. Moreover, maintaining and cleaning a mattress is costly as its price and a challenging process. Stains from different things like foods or smells from your sweating or your children's bedwetting can lead to disposing of a mattress and buying a new one.

You can protect your mattress from these stains and smells by using a fitted sheet. A fitted sheet will absorb moisture from sweating and bedwetting, and also other stains and will keep your mattress protected from all these. Also, fitted sheets are easy breezy to wash and maintain, so if a fitted sheet gets stained, you can wash it easily.
