How To Find The Best Egyptian Cotton Sheets

In the bedding industry, Egyptian cotton sheets have become quite popular due to the comfort and durability benefits it offers with itself. They are commonly seen to be used in bedding products like bedsheets, comforters and pillowcases. If you are someone who doesn’t want to compromise even a bit on your sleep and are looking for the best available options for that, then here we have made a little guide for you about finding the best Egyptian cotton sheets. 

  1. Thread Count

One of the main element of Egyptian cotton sheets is the thread count which distinguishes it from any other bedding material. Even when it comes to Egyptian sheets, there is a huge variety amongst it. A sheet that has the maximum thread count is considered to be the best in terms of durability as well as softness and comfort. But with the increase in thread count, the price of the sheet also increases so if pricing is something you don’t really care about, we suggest you to look for a sheet that falls in the range of 500 to 1500 thread count. However, the point to ponder over is to not fall for the advertised thread count mentioned on the packaging as they often claim a 400 thread count sheet as a 1000 one which is actually a mixture of Egyptian and regular cotton in real.  

  1. Length of Fiber

The next thing to consider when finding the Egyptian cotton sheets is the length of the fiber. Even if the cotton is picked from the Egyptian farmland, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they contain the extra-long staple factor. The rule of thumb here is that if you are not purchasing the ELS type sheet, you might as well purchase a regular cotton sheet instead.  

  1. SinglePly Sheets 

Make sure you are getting your hands on a sheet that consist of single ply sheet. A single ply sheet here means that the bedding product is not a mixture of cheap fibers but is original in terms of the materials used in it. It may sound weird to you but a single ply sheet is far better and durable than a double ply sheet. 

When going for a purchase of Egyptian cotton sheet, you will find a lot of brands selling in the name of Egyptian cotton however, one has to be extra careful as most of the time they are not 100 percent made of Egyptian cotton. The best way to get your hands on them is to purchase them from the common and trusted dealers so that you can actually get the authentic and reliable bedding material for your sleep. egyptian-cotton-sheet

What You Should Never Do When Making Carpet Purchases?

As difficult as it may be to finally admit it, a lot of us actually make a lot of mistakes when it comes to purchasing various home necessities. Buying carpet or rugs is no different, for a lot of people end up regretting their decisions later on, when they realize that the rugs they bought turn out to not so great for their intended purpose. If you want to avoid facing a similar situation yourself in the near future, you may want to exercise some care with your rug purchases.One way to do this would be to keep in mind the following whenever making a rug purchase. This holds true for buying shaggy rugs online or from retailers. Hopefully, this can help you make better decisions and spend your money more wisely.

Keeping Selection for the Last Possible MomentRug selection must be done in conjunction with a room’s decoration process, and not after this process is finished. This is because keeping rug selection for last makes it more difficult to pick a rug that fits an already decorated room, as it can just ruin that perfected look that took you a whole week’s time to finally finish.

Forgetting About Size RequirementsRug size is something that a lot of people tend to get wrong. Normally, a slightly oversized rug won’t be much of a problem, but this is not the case when you choose a smaller one. In that case, you will not be able to get the intended look for your room, as the rug itself is too small to cover the whole area comprising of your main furniture items. So remember to get all required measurements accurately, for you cannot change the size of the rug later (unless you buy another one of course). Some people resort to layering rugs as a way to counter the reduced size of their rugs, but this only makes your home look untidy and disordered.

Choosing the Wrong Type of Rug for Your RoomRug selection must also account for the way it is going to be used. For example, synthetic rugs are not good for decorating children’s rooms or any other places where your kids will be constantly playing. Natural weave rugs are better fits, for they don’t release any harmful chemicals and are thus perfectly safe for these applications. Nevertheless, they aren’t that great when it comes to comfort, so you may want to go synthetic for decorating adult bedrooms.

Blowing Your BudgetIt can be hard to keep your purchases well under your self-imposed budget, but that is mainly due to a lack of patience or because you did not do your research on the various shops available in your area. Also remember to check online sites for deals and better pricing structures, particularly when you want to score a designer rug for an affordable price.rugs-traditional

Giving Your Home A Makeover

If you have decided to give your home a complete makeover, it is important that you start by setting a budget for your project. You will need to decide if the makeover is going to be only about changing the looks of your home or whether it will also involve some renovation work. It might be a good idea for you to bring in a professional structural engineer to come and check your home for any weakness and problems that may need to be fixed before you embark on your home beautifying project.

The essentials

If you have lived in your home for a long period of time and you have noticed that your floor is old and broken, you might want to consider investing some money in re doing your floor by breaking it and adding some luxury porcelain tiles to give your home that classy, stunning look. While this may cost a bit of extra money, it would be completely worth it if you have a little bit of money to invest in your project.

It would also be a good idea to consider investing some money in giving your bathroom a makeover. Studies show that the time we spend in the shower, alone from all the problems of the world are some of the most stress free moments in our day and it would be a good idea to give your bathroom a complete makeover to give yourself a treat. You can have some new stunning bathroom tiles added to your bathroom as well as add a big frameless mirror to it as this adds to the elegance of a bathroom.

Give your home a colour scheme

One of the things that makes are homes look less than gorgeous is the fact that everything we own is a different colour and we buy things for our home throughout time without really considering the colour of the other things in our home. Therefore we will have elegant black and white curtains while we have multi coloured flowery cushions and painting on our walls of trees, flowers, cats and even cars causing a very mixed up look.

Start your project by deciding on a colour scheme for your home and consider replacing everything in your home to match the colours that you have chosen. If you have chosen black and white, make sure that everything in your home is the same colour including the pictures and paintings on your walls. A colour themed home can look spectacular and this is one of the principles used by interior designers to achieve the look they do.
