Our beds come in many different styles and sizes to suit your unique sleeping needs and your bedroom layout. If you need some help deciding what bed size is perfect for you, take a look at our bed size guide.
Once you have a new mattress, a fitted sheet and a duvet, you might look at your bed and think that there is something missing. That something is probably a flat sheet. Queen size flat sheets are available from The Mattress Warehouse as part of our range of bed accessories.
Our high-quality selection of flat sheets are made from both poly cotton and cotton. Our Basel 500 Thread Cotton Flat Sheet, our Cotton 250 Thread Flat Sheet and our Poly Cotton 250 Thread Flat Sheet provide just the right thread count to keep you comfortable throughout the night.
The only difference between a fitted sheet and a flat sheet is that the fitted sheet has an elastic edging. In fact, many people use a flat sheet as a fitted sheet. But, generally, the flat sheet is placed between a duvet or comforter while the fitted sheet covers the mattress. The flat sheet, which can also be called a top sheet, can keep the underside of the duvet clean.
Most people have a fitted and flat sheet combination, and while this is entirely a matter of preference, there are two advantages to having both styles of sheets. The first and often the most common benefit that people enjoy is the extra comfort. Soft sheets are a must if you want to improve the quality of your sleep which is why so many people have a top sheet.
The other, less common but interesting benefit, is that a flat sheet can make the queen size bed look complete. It adds an extra something to the bed, and this can be a big advantage for those in the hospitality industry.
No, it’s not necessary, but it is a matter of preference. Some people simply prefer to have the extra sheet while others are quite comfortable with not having a flat sheet. Sometimes, the matter of whether or not to have a flat sheet is influenced by culture. In Europe, the flat sheet is not all that common while in American culture, the extra sheet is a must!
