Recommendations for choosing fabrics
As for the choice of material, there issome valuable advice. After all, it is on the fabric of bed linen that you need to pay attention first. Although many young and inexperienced housewives at first look at the coloring, and only when they sleep on the purchased set, they understand that they expected otherwise. So, picking up the package with the bed, carefully study the characteristics indicated on it. The most comfortable for sleeping is linen made from natural fabrics. It will allow your body to "breathe" and not cause allergies. If there is such an opportunity, when choosing clothes, you should touch the material, hold it by hand to see if it is soft and smooth enough for you. Perhaps you want to get the effect of a starched bed from the purchased set, as in childhood, then you need to look for a stiffer fabric. Do not interfere with the sniffing of linen. About its quality, in the first place, says the absence of an unpleasant smell of paint. A really good kit should smell of textiles, not chemistry. To correctly approach the issue of how to choose bed linens, you need to understand what materials it can be made of. It is important to know that the words "coarse calico", "satin" and so on do not indicate the composition of the fabric. They are called only the way of weaving. And produce fabrics made of bamboo, silk, cotton, linen and synthetics. And only then, according to the technology used, they get all known names. Since the best are natural materials, the speech in the article will be about them. Bed linen, like everything that surrounds us today, has its own categories. They are determined by the price and quality used in the fabrication of fabrics. The cheapest sets are made of chintz. I must say that, in addition to low cost, such linen can not boast of anything good. It has a short service life and is subject to deformation when washing. The average price segment is represented mainly by sets of cotton fabrics of good durability. When sewing expensive linen elite materials and unusual techniques of drawing are used. This will be discussed later.
Bed linen on the basis of cotton
Coarse calico is a cotton fabric thatis made by the technology of linen weave. The history of its origin goes back to ancient times. Linen from coarse calico is practical, durable and, importantly, does not need special care. It came to us from Central Asia and Persia in the early sixteenth century, but at the time its properties were not appreciated. Previously this fabric was made bleached, and then it was dyed and supplemented with embroidery by hand. Coarse calico is a two-faced material, that is the same on both sides. This is achieved by a special thread weaving technology, which provides fabrics with extraordinary smoothness and opacity, as well as high strength and lightness. In addition, the bed of coarse calico rinses a little, it is perfectly washed and ironed. Considering the fact that the overwhelming majority of manufacturers make this fabric from 100% cotton, the linen from it is also environmentally friendly, allowing your skin to "breathe". Therefore, if you appreciate the practicality and unpretentiousness in bed linen, and also love that it was matte, choose a set of coarse calico. Satin is a fabric that has a shiny and dense surface. In its manufacture, double-braided technology is used. Bright gloss and smooth satin gives a special, dense twisting of threads. Produce it from high-quality cotton, and in terms of its external characteristics, it is sometimes difficult to distinguish satin from silk. The history of the appearance of this kind of fabric originates in medieval China. It was made in those distant times by hand and was not cheap. To date, the bed of satin is optimal in terms of price and quality. Among the durable and durable materials, this type of fabric takes the leading place, because the laundry from it will retain its original appearance and characteristics for a long time even after numerous washes, as it does not "sit down" and does not shed. Satin can also be referred to as "breathing" tissues, and, most importantly, it often does not have to be ironed, because it almost does not crumple. If you like shiny, light and smooth underwear, which you do not even need ironing, you can safely choose a bed from satin. This is how your bedroom will always have a smart and aesthetic appearance. Perkal also refers to cotton fabrics, and the technology of its production uses the same linen interlacing of threads, and also the sizing method. But it is produced without finishing, because it is a technical material. In its smoothness, percale is inferior to satin and coarse calico, but its wear resistance (due to sizing) is very high. This is evidenced by the fact that it has found its application in the manufacture of parachutes. Perkal is also made from natural quality cotton. If you appreciate practicality and high wear resistance, choose bed linen from this kind of fabric, and it will not disappoint you. Ranfons is a tissue that has an increased ability to absorb moisture. It is distinguished also by a very high density of weaving cotton threads. In the past few years, Ranfons has been a leader in the production of bed linen, and not for nothing.

And if you prefer a deep and comfortable sleep, then choose a bed from rangfons.

Thanks to the triangular cross-section of its constituent threads, silk has the property of reflecting light like a prism. This is what determines the brightest shine of the fabric and beautiful overflows. It is hypoallergenic and has the ability of thermoregulation. Therefore, on a hot night, a sheet of silk will pleasantly cool your body, and in winter you will quickly get warm in such a bed.

Perhaps the only drawback of this fabric is that it is difficult to iron it. But the price of such a set of linen is very high, and therefore we, unlike Europe, do not easily find a linen bed in an ordinary store.

Jacquard linen looks amazing, although it is expensive because of the fact that the picture on it is textured and felt by hand. Satin-silk is an interweaving of two kinds of threads, therefore has a bright glossy luster.

Design of bed linen and its sizes
Of course, the materials from which theModern bedroom sets are a key issue. But we, women, attach great importance to the way our bed looks in the general concept of the design solution of the room. Much depends on how we plan to spend the night - just to sleep off or enjoy sensual and passionate feelings in the arms of a beloved man. Therefore, you should pay due attention to the choice of colors in the range of models offered. To begin with, let us turn to the advice of psychologists who believe that the intimate life of a young couple largely depends on the properly selected underwear. For example, a red satin bed makes joint nights very passionate, but it is not always recommended to use it, because the main task of any linen is to give moral and physical rest. Therefore, save kits of this and other saturated colors for special occasions, and for everyday use it is better to choose reserved pastel shades, for example, green, pale yellow, blue and so on. According to psychologists, pink tones favorably affect the emotional state and help create a pleasant romantic relationship. The classic white color has always been a symbol of purity and innocence, but black is its complete antagonist. Consider this when choosing a bed.

As for the drawings on your bed set, the large flowers and shapes contribute to the turbulent nights in love. If in your plans to calm down already vivid and passionate relations, linen of calm pastel tones or in a fine drawing just will suit for these purposes. Remember that sets with geometric patterns are best suited for good sleep after a hard day's work. If you want to choose linen as a gift to a loved one, then determine who he is by nature. Romantic people will surely like pastel linen in a small and large flower with trimmings and ruches. People vigorous, strong-willed and resolute can be presented bright sets in the oriental style. If your close friend has the status of a business lady, make it pleasant and give a chic jacquard set of monochromatic warm tones or with an unusual pattern. To know how to choose the right bed linen, you need to understand and its size, because the duvet cover, sheet and pillowcases included in the kit can be presented in several versions.
