Should you use a flat sheet or just stick with a fitted sheet? This has been the subject of many an internet debate, and people just can’t seem to agree on the matter. If you’re not sure what all the fuss is about, stick with us and we’ll explain it all.
As their names suggest, flat sheets are flat, simple, rectangular pieces of cloth that fold easily and lie completely flat on any surface. Fitted sheets have elasticated corners that are designed to be pulled over a mattress to ensure a snug, secure fit – they also do not lie flat and are difficult to fold.
Traditionally, fitted sheets – also known as bottom sheets – are the ones used to cover and protect the mattress. These are the ones you lie directly on top of, and the only thing sometimes used beneath them is an additional mattress protector.
Flat sheets – also known as top sheets – are traditionally placed on top of the fitted sheet, but beneath duvets and blankets. These are there to make the bed appear more inviting, and to protect your duvet covers and blankets from getting dirty. The idea here is that you can wash the flat sheet regularly without having to wash the duvet cover as often.
It’s all down to personal taste. If you find it too much of a hassle to fold and tuck the corners of a flat sheet while making your bed, or if you find that having an extra layer of cotton in addition to your duvet is making you to warm, leave it out. If, on the other hand, you find it easier to wash and change a flat sheet rather than your duvet covers and blankets, and if you love the way a flat sheet looks with your bedding sets, then keep it in. Whichever sheet you go for we have the right one for you, high quality cloth that will send you off to sleep in seconds!
