Hustling in the day is no easy feat. We get it. That’s why there’s no better feeling than sinking into slumber with silky, soft bedsheets after a long day’s work. The question is — how do you pick the best bedsheet in Singapore given our humid weather? Toss out those thick bedsheets that wrinkle easily and trap heat. Here’s our roundup of the best bedsheets in Singapore that will have you drifting off to dreamland in no time!
What to consider when choosing the best bedsheet in Singapore
When shopping for bedsheets, you’ll often find a thread count number stated on the packaging. But what does thread count mean? This refers to the number of horizontal and vertical threads per square inch. In general, the higher the thread count of your sheets, the softer it’ll feel on your skin. Many 5 star hotels use bedsheets with 600 to 1000 thread count — which is probably why we never want to get out of bed during our stay! However, for regular sleeping, a common option that many Singaporeans go for would be sheets around 300 to 400 thread count. These are decently soft and easy on the wallet.
If you don’t already know, bedsheets come in various sizes to cater to different mattress dimensions. A queen bed will need a queen size bedsheet while a king bed will need a king-size one. So next time you go shopping for the best bedsheet in Singapore, be sure to check your mattress dimensions first!
Colour of your sheets
Picking your favourite colour for your bedsheet is often not the best decision, and here’s why. Your bedsheet colours can not affect your sleep quality, but also how you feel when you wake up and can affect your emotions when you spend time in the bedroom. Loud and bright colours (think neon pink and yellow) are not the best colours for your sheets as they can be overstimulating and can tire your eyes. This can make it hard for you to fall asleep. In addition, bedsheets with too many colours or patterns can make your space appear cluttered — quite the opposite of what you want your bed to look like. Instead, go for neutral tones like beige or dusty blue sheets. You can also opt for darker hues like navy blue to enhance the relaxing vibe in your room.
The best material for bedsheet
Last but not least, the material of your bedsheet is also crucial to getting a good night’s sleep. But with so many different types of fabric to choose from, you may be spoilt for choice. Fret not, refer to our table below to figure out the best material for your bedsheet!
|Egyptian cotton||Luxurious, breathable, pill-free, super soft, and smooth||Can be expensive, wrinkle-prone|

|Upland cotton||Most common bedsheet material, breathable, affordable||Not as soft as Egyptian cotton|
|Tencel||Made of eucalyptus wood pulp, soft, breathable, durable, and antimicrobial||Can be expensive|

|Bamboo||Breathable, soft, durable, and eco-friendly||Can be expensive, wrinkle-prone|
|Blend||Durable, wrinkle-resistant, affordable||Scratchy|
