It's easy to surround yourself in comfort when you know what you're looking for. Because we understand that shopping for bedding can be an overwhelming experience, we've made it easier for you by breaking bedding down into its essential components.

The Fitted Sheet

This sheet covers your mattress and usually comes with an elastic so it fits snugly over the mattress. While some use flat sheets instead of fitted, we prefer a fitted bottom sheet that doesn't bunch up when we're tossing and turning! The fitted sheet should be the same size as your mattress, so make sure you know your mattress size before shopping for a fitted sheet to avoid buying one that is too small or too loose. View our fitted sheets here.

The Flat Sheet

This is the sheet laid on top of the fitted sheet and below the duvet cover or bedspread. This top part of our sheets is usually printed or comes with a solid border, and that's the part folded over the duvet or bedspread, giving your bed a touch of colour or pattern. We recommend using both a fitted and flat sheet along with a bedspread or duvet over the fitted sheet. View our flat sheet sets here

The Duvet Cover

This is typically the most important element of your bed since duvet covers are usually more decorative than bed sheets, so here is your chance to show off your personal style and taste. Your bed is the focal point of your bedroom, so fall in love with the color and pattern of your duvet! We recommend choosing something you will love for years because that's how long your duvet will last. View our duvet cover sets here.

The Bedspread

For those of you who prefer not to use a duvet cover in the summer months, a bedspread is a perfect way to add colour to your room. Our jacquard bedspreads are made with 100% Egyptian cotton. View our bedspreads here

The Throw Blanket

We're assuming the term "throw" came about because you can just throw this small blanket on your bed, sofa, chair or just wrap it around your shoulders to stay warm and snug in the wintertime. On a bed it adds a fun dash of colour and can be coordinated with the throw cushions and to tie in all the colours and textures in your bedroom. View our throw blankets here

How many do I need?

The ideal amount to purchase is three sets per bed. The idea behind this is that one set should be on your bed, one in your bedding closet, and one in the laundry. This way you never run out of fresh bed linens! 

The size of bedding you need depends on your mattress size. See our size guide for more information.

To ensure that you are getting the quality you desire, a key factor to look at when selecting bedding is 'thread count' and the origin of the cotton used. Another important factor is how to wash your bedding. Properly treated, our bedding will give enjoyment for a long time. Please read our care instructions before washing your bedding to ensure that you get it right.
