Registering for sheets comes with a myriad of options that may seem a little overwhelming if you aren’t sure exactly what you (and your partner) are looking for. Do you want crisp, classic white cotton sheets or rumpled, relaxed linen in a moody hue? Do you sleep hot and need sheets that will keep you cool with moisture-wicking technology, or do you live in a climate that requires cozy flannel sheets for the winter months? Furthermore, sheets come in so many price ranges— even if you're setting up a registry and not paying for them yourself, the cost is an important thing to consider.
Here, the best sheet sets.
Best Sheet Bundle: Parachute Washed Sateen Venice Set
If you’re ready to dress your bed from head to toe (or pillowcase to duvet) your best bet is to spring for a sheet bundle. More than just sheets and pillowcases, this set also includes a duvet cover at a super reasonable price. We like this washed sateen set in particular because you might think that sateen is shiny, but this one is actually matte, color-blocked, and super chic.
Choose from ivory, rose, or pewter (we especially love the rose— it's a perfectly dusty hue) and have fun with the duvet cover, which is reversible so you can switch things up when you get bored. Plus, you can easily throw these in the washer and dryer without having to worry about treating them too delicately or having to iron them. The only thing to note is that these don’t come with a top sheet, but many people don’t prefer them anyway. You can always purchase one separately!
Best Cooling Sheets: Peach Skin Sheets Night Sweats
If you’re a hot sleeper, you’re not alone. Waking up in the middle of the night to damp sheets thanks to overheating is no fun, and of course, means you’re having to wash sheets more often which is equally un-fun. So what’s the solution? Opt for sheets that are cooling, moisture-wicking, and that will have you feeling like your entire body is nestled on the cool side of the pillow.
With twenty-five color options to choose from and a super-affordable price tag, it would be hard to not register for these. Even if you’re not a hot sleeper, you can’t go wrong with these! Oh, and they’ve got a 1500 thread-count so they feel super luxe.
Best Linen Sheets: Hawkins New York Simple Linen Bedding
Linen is the definitive luxury sheet for those who love a more laid back, wabi-sabi look in their home. It's also a naturally moisture-wicking material, meaning that it will keep you feeling cool in the summer or if you happen to run hot while you sleep. Linen sheets also layer well in cold climates and are super durable for years of use.
If you’re looking to invest in really, really good quality linen sheets, we suggest these beauties. They're made start to finish with care, starting 100% Belgian linen that is then finished in Portugal. If that wasn’t enough choice for you, there are 17 gorgeously muted colorways to choose from—buy two sets and mix and match to your heart's desire!
Best Cotton Percale Sheets: Snowe Home Percale Sheet Set
People love percale sheets for a myriad of reasons—it's a cotton weave that makes sheets feel breathable and smooth, but also have a crisp, polished look. They’re a classic, reliable standby and the sheets you’ll find yourself reaching for again and again.
These percale sheets are made of Egyptian cotton and boast a 500-thread-count. They come in five essential colors, like Timeless Blush and Ash Grey (which coincidentally would look good mixed and matched together), and of course, there’s a reason why cotton sheets are so popular. These sheets not only fit beds perfectly, regardless of mattress toppers (thanks to the generous sizing) but also feel like sleeping on the most luxe hotel sheets for half the price. Sign us up!
Best Flannel Sheets: Coyuchi Cloud Brushed Flannel Sheets
We wouldn’t say flannel is an ideal summer option, but boy oh boy there is truly nothing better than snuggling into some flannel sheets on a cold winter night. As is true of so many things, not all flannel sheets are created equal. You need not get a subpar set that loses its soft coziness after a few washes. For those truly bitterly evenings you need a quality set, which is why we suggest these.
“Cloud brushed” is no understatement—these 100% organic cotton bad boys are like the cozy sweater of sheets. They're weighty in the best way, keeping you warm and comfy all winter long. These come in eight colors (two of which are plaid, which we love for a traditional look), and include a flat sheet, fitted sheet and coordinating pillowcases.
Best Cashmere Blend Sheets: Brooklinen Heathered Cashmere
These sheets will hands down make your bed your favorite place in your home. The finish is “heathered cashmere”, meaning it has a soft, muted look thanks to the weave. The fibers are the perfect marriage of materials, combining the softness of cashmere with the breathability of the cotton. It’s a win-win if you ask us.
Plus—these sheets have the added bonus of getting softer with every wash and hold up well with lots of washes (you won't get sick of sleeping in these any time soon. These come in three beautiful colors—we’re partial to the Frosted Blue.
Best Sustainable Sheets: Cariloha Classic Bamboo Sheets
We should all be doing our part to help our planet, and choosing bamboo sheets is certainly a start. Bamboo regenerates naturally without chemicals, keeps the air and soil clean, and is an all-around good choice in the sustainability department. If that wasn’t enough, bamboo sheets won’t pill, are stain-resistant, and are incredibly cooling and naturally allergen repellant
This affordable set is 250 thread-count but boasts a much softer feel than most 1,000 thread-count Egyptian cotton varieties. Plus, they come in six different colors and a range of sizes. If you want bamboo sheets with a bit more luster and sheen, their Resort bamboo sheets have both, plus a 450 thread-count.
