If you are someone who has home decor on the brain often, sheets are likely to be taking up more and more of your musings recently, with a bevy of heritage brands and newcomers vying for your dollars. Perhaps it was inevitable that once Casper got us thinking about something as seemingly mundane as mattresses, we were primed to begin to obsess over other basics like linens. But with an endless array of options promising the best night's sleep ever, it can be hard to know where to start and where to spend your dollars.
Thankfully, one of our favorite picks also happens to be budget-friendly. Target's Threshold Performance sheets are something of an online cult favorite, garnering gushing reviews from devotees, including one of our own writers who said it's the only sheet brand she'll ever buy again . We also recently honored them as one of Apartment Therapy's 50 top home essentials.
And while the everyday price is enough to make us want to restock a linen closet, the sheets are also 30% off as part of Target's bedding and bath sale through Tuesday, February 6. The sale prices only apply to sheet sizes full and larger, but that means you can score a set of full-sized sheets for about the cost of a twin, and get a whopping $18 off a set of king sheets, from $60 to $42. All the twin sets are still the low price of $30.
How do a humble set of Target sheets get such devotion? It would appear that it's a combo of design and touch. The sateen stays soft wash after wash, and is comparable to pricier cotton percale. The fitted sheets also have strong elastic that can fit both thin and thick mattresses without slipping, a frequent pain point with other sheet sets we've tried.
If you're feeling adventurous, their patterned counterparts are also on sale, and the 14 options range from subtle, smaller patterns to to big, bold ones that could play well with more neutral bedding.
Already have a favorite set of pricier sheets for yourself? This could also be a great time to stock up for the kid or guest bedrooms. Like their patterned counterparts, the solid performance sheets come in 20 colors, from a variety of off-whites to full-blown jewel tones. They'll never know you didn't spend big for their good night's sleep.
