Have you ever bought a beautiful bed linen, but it lost its vibrant colours after one wash and its shape after a few weeks of use, so that you were left with nothing but a piece of cloth? Maybe you chose an inappropriate material, or you bought the linen at a wrong location. We are going to advise you how to buy a bed linen that will serve you for years.


The Key To The Proper Selection Of Bedding Is The Choice Of Material

Most of us choose the bedding by its colour and design, but you should decide according to the material, first. Most frequently, you see bed linen made of polyester, which is attractive for its low price. However, try to avoid polyester whenever possible – it is the very material that loses its colour and shape! And additionally, it is neither breathable nor absorbent, which are the main qualities you expect from your linen.

Tip: The ideal material for bedding is clearly cotton. Cotton bedding is breathable, absorbent and comfortable to the touch.


Cotton Has Many Forms

Cotton is a material that can be processed by many different modifications. That is why you can get cotton linen under various names. And each type has different characteristics:

– linen made of smooth cotton is the classic type you cannot be wrong with; it is breathable, absorbent and pleasant to the touch

– crepe linen can be made of cotton, as well as of other materials; crepe indicates the finishing of the cloth, which does not require ironing; a crepe cotton linen maintains all the positive properties of cotton

– flannel is also made of cotton; a flannel bedding is popular mainly in the winter months because of its softness and warmth

– cotton satin is made from 100% cotton and thanks to a special finish, it is smooth, soft and shiny, that is why it looks like satin; the cotton satin linen has excellent thermoregulation properties and it is ideal for year-round use


The bunk beds are not only a great option for small bedrooms in which the classic beds would occupy most of their area. The high structure of the bunk beds also breaks the traditional layout of the interior and gives flair to the entire room.

The bunk beds can be found in the interior design already for many years because of their effectiveness.  The high positioned bunk beds can utilize the same floor area twice so much.


“The bunk beds with tiers are space-savers of their nature. The beds themselves are compact and they are usually the most space occupying furniture in children’s rooms as well as in bedrooms. Their upwards structure gives you more free area, which you can use for everyday activities in the room,” an architect says.

The high bunk beds are nowadays often used in bedrooms for adults too, where the saved area is used e.g. for a desk or a couch, thus creating a practical living space.


However, this kind of furniture does not fit in every apartment. In this respect, the ceiling height is determining. This kind of solution is the best at the ceiling height of about 3.5 meters, so the bed could be placed high enough and you could move under it comfortably.

“If you do not have a ceiling of this height, do not despair. The space under the beds can be used for cabinets, an open closet or even for an open work area,” a designer says.


Sleeping In The Upper Tier

The bunk beds are usually placed in children’s rooms so that the children had enough space for playing,. In most cases, the kids argue about who is going to sleep in the upper tier. From the emotional point of view, the kid in the upper bunk feels better because he or she does not have so much open space above them.
