If you have an amazing bed, then you definitely need amazing bed linen to go with it. It complements the mattress and can make you have a relaxing sleep. There is a lot of bed linens available in the market wherein you can easily find them online or in your local stores. But first, you should know a few things before buying a new one.

Bed size

Before buying any sheet, measure the dimensions of your mattress. As some mattresses are made for a king-sized bed, while some are made for a single or queen-sized bed. You don’t want bed linen that doesn’t cover your mattress or is too large.


Fibers are the substance which makes up your bed linen or any cloth for that matter. There are a lot of fibers present in the market, with each having a different feel, property, and a uniqueness to it. Fibers such as satin, cotton, linen, poly-cotton, bamboo, etc are some of the few examples. Linen has a property of providing coolness and comfort, while cotton control moisture and insulates, and so on.

So lately, my boys and I are enjoying the softness and comfortability of our new Akemi PH bed linen. I discovered this brand when we visited SM Home Fair last month at the SM Mall of Asia. Akemi PH is a trusted brand that features an extensive range of bed linen, bedding accessories such as pillows, bolsters, quilts, towels, mattress protectors and others.

Furthermore, it has natural cooling properties and with its outstanding moisture management, it absorbs excess liquid and quickly releases it again into the atmosphere. And lastly, it inhibits bacteria growth effectively, thus using bed linen made of it significantly improves health, comfort and promotes the feeling of well-being. This type of bed linen is perfect for people with asthma.

Thread count

It means the number of threads per square inch. The higher the thread count the softer the sheet. Any sheet with the thread count over 200 is considered decent, Akemi PH bed linens start at 380. But if you really want the best, go for sheets with a thread count over 1000. Though it may be a bit expensive.

Have bed linen that matches your style

There is a lot of bed linens present such as plain, with prints, embroidery, etc. And each one of them has a unique look to it. So choose a style will that compliments your room ambiance and your style. I personally love the modern look design like from Akemi PH.
