14. How to choose
15. How we test

The best bed sheets should look good, feel better, wash well, and lie beautifully on your bed. A stylish set of sheets could upgrade your sleep and elevate your bedroom decor in one fell swoop.

You could shop for the best bed sheets by material. Where linen is durable and breathable, cotton sateen is soft and silky, while something like eucalyptus or bamboo might be more suitable for eco-conscious shoppers. Alternatively, you could shop by color. All the specialist sleep stores stock crisp white bed sheets, but only a select few offer bolder hues. With so much on the market, it's easy to feel spoiled for choice. 

That's where I come in. As H&G's resident sleep writer, I've slept under some of the world's best bed sheets. I know my cotton percale from my cotton sateen, and I know what I'm looking for in a sheet set: premium materials, expert craftsmanship, and a reasonable price point.

These simple, tailored sheets lie beautifully on any bed. Their timeless style will outlast any trends and, thankfully, these are premium enough to outlast them too. The Luxe Sateen Core Sheet Set comes in solid colors, as well as subtler stripes and checks, which should blend beautifully into any background. If you want cool, crisp, cotton sheets, you're in the right place. 

Most of us have worked up a sweat making the bed, so you'll appreciate the 'Long' and 'Short' tags on the side of the fitted sheets, letting you know which ends need to be where. This is something we wish every sheet had. 

When it comes to washing, these are easy and convenient. Everything is machine-washable and dryer-safe, though I recommend ironing for best results.
