Buying new sheets is one of those purchases we tend to put off, but, considering that you spend roughly a third of your life in bed, it's definitely an important one. It's so nice to have a fresh update; it can improve your outlook, your sleep and the style of your bedroom in one fell swoop. With that in mind, we've rounded up 10 classic sheet sets—at every price point — that will keep you comfortable and also add a little subtle dash of style to your bed.


Starting at $33.74 for a Twin set

These soft jersey sheets came recommended by a co-worker, and reviewers at Target.com seem very pleased with them, too. Jersey sheet sets may conjure up images of college dorms for some, but the rich color and subtle texture of these seems very grown-up to me.

Starting at $59 for a Twin sized set

Cotton percale bedding in a lovely, subtle color, with just a little bit of texture.

Starting at $79.99 for a Queen sized set

A luxuriously high thread count in a very reasonably priced set of sheets. Reviewers say that they're soft and comfortable, and that the 500 thread count makes them not too heavy and not too light.

Our Previous Lists:


Starting at $99 for a Twin set

Brooklinen, which came recommended by quite a few folks at Apartment Therapy headquarters, offers this lightweight cotton sheet set, which is available in solids and stripes, but also in this subtle windowpane pattern.

Starting at $109 for a Twin sized set

Cozy flannel for colder climates, in a lovely, subtle pinstripe.

Starting at $119 for a Twin sized set

I especially like the color choices for these sheets. They're made from Tencel, which is made from eucalyptus trees and is particularly good at moisture wicking, making this set a good choice for summer sheets.

Starting at $158 for a Full sized set

The border detail elevates this over other, plain white sheet sets.

Starting at $149.99 for a full size set

A sheet set in beautifully textured linen, with a nice stripe detail at the border.

Other Good Resources:


Starting at $198 for a Twin XL sized set

Delicately embroidered borders give this set an ethereal prettiness.

Starting at $365 for a Queen sized set

Australia-based Cultiver creates beautiful, luxurious linen bedding in a range of 14 colors. Definitely spendy, but you'll be glad of it every time you get into bed.
