Whether you need twin bed sheets for a child’s room, spare room or for occasional guests on the sofa, you have many options when it comes to fabric and style. Here’s a look at the top trends in twin bed sheet sets.
Twin sheets are often used as kids’ bed sheets or college dorm sheets, so it’s important to consider the material’s durability and care instructions.
• Since they’re made from a natural fiber, cotton twin bed sheets are breathable and wick moisture while staying soft for years. They’re easy to wash and provide a great option for people with sensitive skin.
• Polyester sheets
can’t be beat for toughness. They can withstand messes and are easy to clean.
• Microfiber sheets are durable and soft. They resist pilling and are lightweight and warm. But they’re not as breathable as cotton.
Twin sheet sets typically come with a fitted sheet, flat sheet and one pillowcase. It’s a good rule of thumb to have two sets of sheets for every bed in the house, so you always have a spare when the other set is being washed. Extra long, or twin XL, sheets are suitable for most college dorm beds.
Styles and Colors
Select a color that complements the rest of the bedding in the room. Blue bed sheets work well as a solid backdrop to bedding with lots of other patterns and colors. Or choose something more vibrant, like stripes or polka dots, to add a little personality to the room. You can’t go wrong with soft neutrals—use them interchangeably in girls’ or boy’s bedrooms.
Consider having several sets of white twin bed sheets
on hand. Use them on the sofa when you have overnight guests or as a backup when other sheets are in the laundry.
