Are you still sitting or already asleep? 10 stylish and functional sofa beds

Fitted sheets are used for hygiene purposes and to protect your mattress from contamination by sweat or skin particles. However, to ensure that they really do contribute to hygiene, they should be changed and washed regularly. It's therefore handy to be able to put them on and take them off as easily as possible. Fitted sheets in the sizes 90x200 cm, 140x200 cm, 160x200 cm, 180x200 cm are popular because they can be easily and comfortably stretched over the four corners of the mattress with the elastic band. This ensures a good hold, so that the fitted sheet does not slip or crease when you're sleeping. A popular type of sheet fabric is jersey, which is cotton with a light elastane content. This fine elasticity means that the fitted sheet stretches perfectly over the mattress at all times. You'll find other qualities such as terry, percale and satin by filtering for «Type of fabric». Percale has a pleasantly cooling property and is more robust in design than jersey, while satin is pleasantly soft and easy to look after. Terry cloth is made of the finest cotton quality, is particularly kind to the skin and balances the temperature. When buying a sheet, however, you should also pay attention to the width of the cover, i.e. the height of the mattress. You can also find fixed sheets for box spring beds with a cover width of 40 cm and more. If you want to protect your mattress even better from dirt and extend its lifetime, use a molleton or topper under the fitted sheet. You can also buy these online from us.
