In a previous post, we discussed where we save and where we splurge in the bedroom. When it comes to sheets though, it truly is a matter of personal preference, which is formed based on personal priorities and lifestyle. For those who are in the thick of raising young children, for example, may not opt for primo sheets due to the fact that little people tend to crawl into bed in the middle of the night! For the single, young professional though, it may be worthwhile to invest in some high-quality sheets to promote optimal sleep. Regardless of where you find yourself on the spectrum, there is a wide variety of options available for all budgets that promise to meet your needs. Here are just a few of our go-tos when it comes to buying sheets…
If the name rings a bell, it’s probably because you fell in love, like we did, with the sheets that we recently used for our little client’s new and improved bedroom. With a stunning collection of styles, most of which are available in several colours, this family-owned American company is known for its incredible craftsmanship. Although these sheets come with an “investment” level price tag, they are built to last if you care for them. Plus, they are highly customizable with monogramming services available.
If you prefer to touch and feel your sheets in person before purchasing, Au Lit Fine Linens in Toronto is a wonderful shopping experience. The boutique’s staff are helpful and knowledgeable and although the merchandise is all of impeccable quality and generally high-end, they have a good range of prices and sometimes you can catch one of their incredible sales.
If you’re looking for simple, high-quality sheets that you can feel good about, head to the Toronto-based brand Kotn! Originally known for their effortlessly-cool basics, Kotn has now introduced home items, including bedding, into their product lineup. Kotn is committed to supporting the families of cotton farmers in the Nile River Delta in Egypt with their clothing and the bedding collection is no different. These sheets are made from the same high-quality, long-staple Egyptian cotton making them a great choice for everyday use!
For simple, sustainable, Canadian-Made bedding, look no further than female-owned company, Tuck. Their high-quality bedding is organic, breathable and has a level of softness that promotes relaxation. In their sheets you will find an expertly crafted blend of organic cottons and sustainably-grown botanicals like eucalyptus.
As you’ve probably gathered from several posts and projects of ours, Elte is one of our go-tos for… well, everything and for good reason! They truly have everything, including sheets. Although sheets aren’t Elte’s main focus, their selection is ample and luxurious and often the best and simplest solution when you’re already there buying the bed, side tables, side-table lamps and so forth. At Elte it’s easy to create a bedding look that feels cohesive with the rest of the space.
