What Is Luxury Bedding?

If you’ve ever spent the night sleeping on luxury bedding, then you know it can be a magical experience. Not only are luxury sheets and comforter sets sumptuously soft, but they also offer exceptional breathability, so you stay cool and dry on even the hottest of summer nights. If you’re in the market for luxury bedding, you might be wondering where to start. After all, today’s manufacturers offer a wide array of bedding materials from cotton to linen, bamboo to eucalyptus, silk to satin. Moreover, shoppers can choose from a broad selection of sizes, styles, colors, patterns, and prints. At Latest Bedding, we’re passionate about helping all individuals get a better night’s rest so they can improve work productivity and general life satisfaction. Keep reading to learn more about luxury bedding and find out what high-end options are right for you. 

How to Choose Luxury Bed Sheets

Luxury bedding can mean the difference between tossing and turning and sleeping through the night. But how do you know where to start the search? The foundation of any bed, sheets can impact both your comfort and complexion. Here are some tips on choosing luxury bed sheets to keep you cool and cozy through all four seasons. 


When it comes to selecting high-end bedding, material is one of the primary considerations. After all, sheets are the bedding item that comes into the most contact with skin, and choosing the wrong sheets can lead to a host of negative side effects from night sweats to acne. While the right bedding material is ultimately whichever one you prefer, we recommend breathable cotton bedsheets. In particular, long-staple Egyptian cotton sheets like the ones we offer from Pure Parima can help you stay cool and dry no matter how high the temperature rises. 

Thread Count

Once you’ve chosen a bedding material, it’s time to consider thread count. A measure of the number of vertical and horizontal threads composing a square inch of fabric, thread count can affect both the quality of a given fabric and how it feels against your skin. However, buyers should beware, as some manufacturers inflate their thread counts by using strands of lower-quality multi-ply yarn rather than higher-end single-ply yarn. The end result is a rougher sheet that’s likely to pill and tear with time.

If you’re looking for truly luxurious bedding, we suggest opting for a thread count between 300 and 800, which is the maximum number of threads that can fit in a square inch of Egyptian cotton. 


Another key bedding metric, weave affects both how your sheets feel and whether or not they offer a breathable night’s rest. Those who love the feel of silk but want to enjoy the health benefits of cotton bedding will likely be drawn to sateen. Smooth and lustrous, sateen features a one-over, three under weave, resulting in a strong fabric that feels lovely to the touch. Not only are sateen sheets wrinkle resistant, but they also tend to be warm. So, they’re a great choice for sleepers who reside in colder climates. 

If you prefer a cooler sheet or live in a part of the country that faces frequent heat waves, percale may be the better choice. Crisp, fresh, and durable, percale features a one over, one under weave. The result is a cool, breathable bedding choice that’s built to last. Additionally, percale is great for those who want to feel like they’re staying the night in a luxury hotel, as five-star facilities regularly choose this sheet weave option over sateen.


Of course, the most luxurious sheets are more than just functional. They also have aesthetic benefits, filling you with joy every time you walk into the room. When shopping for luxury bedding, we recommend choosing colors and patterns that bring you joy. For example, those seeking a feminine, flirty bedding option will likely appreciate a floral bedding print. On the other hand, those with a penchant for modern decor may be drawn to stripes and solids. Ultimately, the right bedding style is whichever one speaks to you. 

What Comes In A Luxury Sheet Set?

The good news is that luxury sheets tend to be sold as part of a set, so you don’t have to shop for and purchase individual pieces. A typical sheet set comes with a fitted bottom sheet that sits directly on the mattress, a flat sheet that goes between the sleeper and the comforter, and two matching pillowcases. 

Additionally, sheet sets are available in different sizes, including twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, California king, and split king. (Note that twin sheets sets may only come with one pillowcase rather than two.) While comforters and duvets don’t have to match the mattress size exactly, sheets won’t fit if they’re not sized properly. So be sure to check your mattress before hitting the online shops. 

How Often Should You Replace Your Sheets?

The good news is that luxury sheets can last a long time when they’re properly washed and stored. In fact, high-end sheets can maintain their integrity for up to 10 years, while lower-quality bedding lasts around two years. For best results, wash your sheets and pillowcases regularly according to the care instructions and store them in a cool, dry area when they aren’t in use. Doing this will preserve your sheets’ softness and keep them looking attractive. 

There are some signs that your sheets may need to be replaced. If your fitted sheet no longer holds firm to the mattress, it might be time to swap it out. Additionally, you should replace your sheets if they’re starting to pill, rip, or tear. And of course it’s a good idea to buy new sheets if yours have stains or threadbare patches. 

Creating a Luxury Bed

Of course, sheets are just one component of luxury bedding. While crisp, breathable sheets help regulate temperature and moisture while you rest, other elements of the bed are just as essential to sleeping well. Here are some other components to consider when shopping for new bedding:


A quilted blanket made up of a fabric bag filled with down or synthetic fibers, a comforter keeps sleepers warm on chilly nights while helping a bed feel cozy. Comforter shoppers have multiple options when it comes to both materials and thickness. And of course, comforters come in a wide range of styles from solid colors to patterns and prints. The goal is to choose a comforter that’s warm yet breathable and one that melds well with your existing decor. 


No luxury bedding set is complete without an assortment of pillows. You probably know beds need traditional pillows to support your head and neck while you sleep. However, the coziest beds also feature throw pillows to add visual interest and up the snuggle factor. We recommend layering pillows of different sizes, colors, styles, and materials for the most pleasing decor look. 


Wanna save time shopping for bedding without sacrificing on quality?  A luxury comforter set or bed-in-a-bag can be an effective solution. Most comforter sets come complete with a cozy comforter and matching pillow shams. However, more expansive sets also feature bed skirts, throw pillows, window treatments, and even sheets. When you choose a bed-in-a-bag, you can feel confident that all your bedding components will work together in harmony. 

How to Care For Luxury Bedding

Luxury bedding offers sleepers a better night’s rest while improving the appearance of the bedroom. Still, if you want your luxury bedding to last for years to come, you need to care for it properly. It’s worth noting that not all comforters can be washed at home in a machine. Depending on the fabric and fill material, you might need to dry clean your comforter. However, doing this too frequently can shorten the product’s lifespan. For best results, use a top sheet or duvet cover to protect your comforter from stains and minimize the number of times you have to clean it.

If your comforter does get stained, you can spot treat marks and spills. For best results, use a gentle soap like Woolite. If your comforter can be laundered at home, feel free to put it in the washer and dryer. Avoid overstuffing the machines to ensure your comforter has plenty of space. 

Individuals often ask how frequently they should wash their luxury bedding. In general, sheets, pillowcases, and duvet covers should be washed every week and more frequently if they suffer stains. After all, these are the items that come into regular contact with skin, and failing to clean them can result in a build-up of dirt and oils. On the other hand, bedding products that don’t make contact with skin can be cleansed less often. We recommend washing quilts, throw pillow shams, throw blankets, and comforters every few months. Finally, you can wash pillows, duvets, and mattress pads a couple times a year. Choose a schedule that works for you and your family.
