Luxury bed linen is the talk of the town. When we talk about the word “linen”, it comprises a category of woven textiles used in homes as home furnishings like as bed linens, sheets, towels, curtains, cushions and many other such items. The term “bed linen” is a term used to cover a whole range of bedding items starting from the bed sheets to bed covers, coverlets, bed skirts, throw pillows, duvets, pillows, pillow covers, quilts, quit covers and many more.
Luxury linens are an excellent way to spruce up any bedroom. It is to be noted that these linens are not very expensive as many people consider them to be 100 silk bedding . Considering the fact that they are very durable and last for years, they are worth the investment. Instead of spending money on low quality linens which easily wear out after 3 or 4 washings, it is better to make one time investment in luxury linens, that can also be handed down as heirlooms from generation to generation.
While previously linens were only made of natural fibers like cotton, hemp and silk, today there is a whole range of synthetic fabrics available which are used in the making of luxurious bed linens. Cotton, silk and hemp will always remain in the popular categories of fabrics for luxurious linens. The other luxurious fabrics are polyester, rayon, polyester cotton blend, percale, sateen, rich velvets, exquisite sequined fabric, faux furs, pure silk organza etc. All these fabrics look and feel rich and beautiful and give a rich look to the bed linens.
One of the essential factors to consider for quality of linens, especially of bed sheets is the thread count. That is, the higher the thread count, the more expensive and luxurious your sheets are going to be. For a complete rich and luxurious look you should consider buying a complete set of linens, comprising sheets, with matching pillowcases, covers, shams, a dust ruffle, duvet cover etc. This way you can also save certain amount of money as bed linen sets are usually sold at a discounted price compared to individual pieces. Linens are available in a wide range of styles, colors and prints and you can choose anything as per your choice, budget and room’s decor. You will have to decide what thread count you want, as well as the size and color that will accommodate your needs.
