Bed Sheets Buying Guide

Choosing your bed sheets is arguably one of the biggest decisions in your life that you haven't thought much of before.

How To Choose The Right Material For You

In Australia, we are treated to everything from freezing cold and chilly winter nights to those hot and humid summer nights. If your sheets aren't made out of the right material for you, you are not going to have a good sleep. In this section we go through what you might want out of your sheets, and what material would be best for you.


Soft & Breathable Materials

If you find yourself feeling quite hot at night and can't get a good rest, you might need to look at soft & breathable bed sheets. Breathable sheets means that the fibres the sheet is made out of allow heat and air to escape allowing your body to cool.

Hassle-Free & Durable Materials

If you are someone who is quite comfortable at night regardless of the temperature outside, you might be interested in some sheets that are hassle free. Hassle free bed sheets are great at keeping you not too warm and not too cool. These sheets are also quite durable so you can find yourself keeping these sheets for a long time. Please note: Some people can find polyester warm, so keep this in mind when considering these different options.

Cotton Poylester Sheets

Cotton / Polyester >

Warm & Cosy Materials

There is probably nothing better than slipping into nice warm sheets after a super chilly winter night. These warm & cosy sheets are great if you are someone that finds yourself feeling quite cold at night.

Flannelette >
The standard & most popular warm & cosy bed sheet

Micro Flannel Sheets

Finding Your Bed Sheet Size

The biggest thing for you to do before buying your next set of bed sheets is to size your bed and get the appropriate size sheets. All our listings have the specific product sizes in the product descriptions, but typically if you have a specific size bed, you can match that with one of our bed sizes here.

Finding The Wall Depth Of Your Mattress

Another important thing to consider before purchasing your next set of bed sheets is to measure the depth of the wall of your mattress. This is done by using a tape measure and measuring your mattress walls and then add 5-10cm to account for some of the fitted sheet to wrap around underneath.

35cm - 38cm Deep Sheets Range

35cm - 38cm >

40cm - 45cm Deep Sheets Range
