For many of us, the bed is the single piece of furniture we utilize most on a daily basis – and sometimes, we are even lucky enough to spend more time in our bed than we do seated in our chair at work. With this in mind, shouldn’t we make sure that our bed is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also that it is comfortable, soothing and satisfies our personal tactile preference?
Afterall, a beautiful bed invites relaxation, comfort, and glorious uninterrupted sleep.
One of the easiest ways to achieve optimal sleep is through the selection of your bed linens – especially your sheets considering they are the pieces your body actually touches, so invest wisely! Sateen fabrics woven from top-quality cotton are not only super smooth, breathable and moisture-wicking, but can also provide the timeless style and silky finish you need to complete an elevated look.
Percale vs. Sateen
During warm weather months, high-quality Egyptian cotton bedding is our top pick for sleeping cool. When it comes to cotton sheets, there are two kinds of weaves that are most common: Percale and Sateen. While both fabrics are derived from the same material, the look, feel and performance of each varies.
A Percale is woven with a “one over, one under” weave that provides a crisp, cool feel with a matte finish. Sateen in contrast, is characterized by its “one yarn under and three (or more) yarns over” weave that creates a silky, smooth appearance. Sateen’s weaving pattern makes it drape heavier on the body than percale. While both cotton-based fabrics are ideal warm-weather fabrics for bedding, sateen’s density makes it a great choice for sleeping during transition seasons with the windows open through the night.
