Whether you're strictly linens, cotton-curious, prefer the indulgence of silk, or if it all comes down to colours for you, it's okay to be particular (we do spend roughly seven hours a day in them, after all).
And with summer around the corner, it's the perfect time to refresh our lockdown sheets with some chic, breathable, and above all, comfortable sheets that we're happy to work from home in (just some days, of course).
But just like clothes, there's a lot of brands doing similar stuff to sift through and not all are made equal. So, to give you a nudge in the right direction, we've compiled all our go-to bedding that never disappoint in facilitating our beauty sleep.
Behold, our lineup of the ten best sheet brands to luxuriate in this summer.
Carlotta + Gee
Love linen but hate how long it takes to settle in? What if we told you that Melbourne-based brand Carlotta + Gee's sheets are washed in volcanic stones from Malaysia for over four hours to speed up the softening process? Well, they do, and it shows.
The brand's linen is sourced from Normandy, France where the plants that go into making them are grown naturally and ecologically.
Founded by stylist Pip Vassett, IN BED strives for luxurious linens that are just as pretty to look at as they are comfy to nap in. Growing exponentially since their inception in 2013, the brand now has a flagship store in Paddington, Sydney.
Since 2017, the brand has also partnered with charity organisation Women's Community Shelter to set up monthly donations from product sales, as well as bedding sets for the shelters.
Hale Mercantile Co.
For supremely soft linen sheets that nail the rustic-chic look, it's hard to go past Hale Mercantile Co. Inspired by European aesthetics and craftsmanship, the Australian brand was born from a desire to provide timeless sheets with a slow-fashion approach to production.
Their colour range also happens to be an earthy-hued dream, with the perfect off-whites and mustard shades.
A go-to for the fashion crowd, Bed Threads deliver some seriously stylish French linens at relatively affordable prices. We're also likely to get lost in their Journal section and all the fabulous home tours it's filled with.
Oh, and if you're in the market for something a little more cosy? Shop their 100% cashmere throws.
If you're not that keen on linen, or just looking to explore other options, then may we introduce you to bamboo?
Ettitude's innovative sheets are not only 100% bamboo, making them exceptionally soft, but they're also thermo-regulating and infused with a natural antimicrobial bamboo charcoal that reduces bacteria by 99.9%. A clean sleep is a good sleep, if you ask us.
Sheets may be a great investment, but they definitely don't have to cost an arm and a leg. We've been blown away by the quality of Target's bedding range ever since they stepped up their game in the homewares department. And, with prices that practically match our weekly coffee budgets, it's hard to say no.
I Love Linen
To satisfy your cottagecore needs, look no further than Burleigh Heads-based brand I Love Linen. Their colour range is simply stunning but we're big fans of their gingham varieties. They've also got the rest of your home (and wardrobe) sorted with plenty of linen homewares and clothing on offer.
The Sheet Society
Now, it may not sound like much to some, but it's the little thoughtful features that makes us obsessed with this brand. 'Invisible' zippers instead of pesky buttons, extended pillowcase flaps so that it stays put on your pillow, and wide-band elastic on your fitted sheets to make changing them (and keeping them on the mattress) as smooth as possible.
Founded by artist and designer Rachel Castle, this is the brand to turn to if you like your sheets with a bit of quirk.
The graphics from her collections range widely, but always put the 'fun' in functional.
Sage x Clare
Love the look of a mix-and-match set? Same. Melbourne-based Sage x Clare are masters of patterns and are particularly great for those looking to channel a '70s retro vibe.
