A bedding set consists of a number of bedding items that make up the whole that is your bed. A bedding set might consist of a few parts, including the following. Remember, the set is diverse and is not limited to the listed items.

  • Bed-skirt- A bed-skirt extends to the floor to hide the sides of the bed.
  • Comforter sets- A comforter is soft, slightly thicker than a blanket, and padded to provide that extra comfort on the bed. The comforter lays on top of other bedding.
  • Sheets- These go on top of the mattress t create a layer between you and the mattress. Alternatively, you can use a mattress cover instead of a sheet.
  • Blanket- A blanket is used as a bed covering and sometimes as the main covering, and is made of a soft piece of woven fabric.
  • Bed-spread- A decorative sheet that is used to cover everything on the bed whose primary function is to make the bedroom interior design appealing.
  • Duvet- Slightly thicker than comforters and may be filled with feathers or synthetic material for warmth.
  • Duvet cover- Fabric for covering the duvet and keeping the duvet clean
  • Coverlet- Decorative bed cover that does not cover the whole bed but hangs low enough to cover the lower side of the bed.
  • Fitted-Sheets- Sheets fitted to snugly fit the mattress; also known as bottom sheets
  • Flat sheets- Goes over the fitted sheets, leaving the top-end open; also known as top sheets
  • Quilts- Blankets that are slightly flatter than comforters and can sometimes be used as a blanket. However, quilts are not as warm as blankets.
  • Mattress covers- Used to cover the mattress keeping it clean and protecting it from dust, spills, mold, and other things. Furthermore, the covers can help regulate the mattress temperature and keep allergens away.
  • Pillows- These come in two categories; sleeping pillows and throw pillows. Sleeping pillows are used to support the head when sleeping while throw pillows are mostly decorative.
  • Pillowcases- used to cover the pillows and keep them clean.

Now that we know what to expect in bedding sets, here are my best choices.

Things to Consider when Choosing a Bedding-Set

Image Source: thespruce.com

a) Breathable Material

How breathable the bedding is will determine how well the material regulates moisture and temperature. For instance, if you get bamboo bed sheets or duvet covers, they will behave differently from cotton. If you are a heavy sweater, then you need a more breathable material to keep you fresh. If you live in a very cold region, you may want to go for heavier, less-breathable material to trap heat and keep you warm.

b) Comfort

You do not want a material that will keep you up all night due to discomfort. For instance, nylon and wool can be irritating when they come into direct contact with the skin because the materials are made of rough fibers.

Breathable materials offer comfort in hot regions where a heavy covering would lead to too much sweating and discomfort.

c) Thread-Count

Since almost everything in your bedding set is made of fabric, you want to know the fabric threads count as that affects things like how breathable the fabric is. A thread count is the number of threads woven per square inch of fabric. The thread count may signify how tightly or loosely a piece of fabric is woven.

The thread count is gotten by adding the number of wefts (horizontal threads) and that of warps (vertical threads). Fabrics with higher thread counts are mostly regarded as quality options. However, the quality of a fabric depends on many other things including the thread count.

d) Price

There are bedding sets for many price ranges. However, price should not hold you back from getting quality materials. I have provided affordable yet high-quality options above. Remember, you spend the most time of your day in bed and the bedding that you get should be worth it.

e) Design

The bedding you are getting will directly influence your bedroom interior design looks like. If you have a bedding set whose color does not match the bedroom theme colors, your set will not serve its purpose, which is to make the bedroom an inviting and comfortable space. I find working with decorative pillows and plain bedding easy and fun.

f) Allergens

When picking a bedding material, choose one that does not trap or attract dust easily as dust will most likely cause allergies. Investing in pillow protectors as pillows tend to have feathers and bird down feathers that tend to trap dust, potentially causing allergies.

g) Quality

The bedding set you are getting needs to be of quality material. Cotton sheets can be considered high quality, but Egyptian cotton would be considered a luxury.

h) Size

You need to get bedding sets that match your bed size. There is a wide selection of bedding, including flat options that are not fitted to a particular bed size.

i) Machine-Washable

Image Source: sunset.com

I change my bedding twice a week, and having to wash them by hand would be a tough task to complete. For that reason, I look at whether the bedding set I am buying is machine washable.

j) Number of Items in the Set

A bedding set has a variety of items including pillow protectors, sheets, duvets, bed-covers, and more. Before making a purchase, take a look at the items to know if you are getting a good deal or not.

k) Fitted vs Flat

A fitted bedding set fits snugly around the bed and mattress while flat bedding is not made to fit specifically on a mattress or a bed. Fitted bedding sets are great because they look neat and are easy to spread. 

Frequently Asked Questions About Full-Size Bedding Set

i) What do you need for a full-size bedding set?

To create a complete bedding set, there are a few things basic things you need including;

  • Bottom sheets (fitted or flat)
  • Top sheets
  • Pillows and pillow-cases,
  • Duvet, quilts, full-size comforters, or blanket
  • Mattress pads (optional choice)
  • Decorative pillows, sheets, and bed-skirts (optional)

ii) What are full-size bedding set dimensions?

A full-size mattress is 54 by 75 inches and the bedding would therefore be slightly larger, with the common measurements being between 80 to 84 inches. The full-size is also known as "double".

iii) Are full and queen sheets the same?

The queen size is slightly larger than the full size. The queen size is 60 by 80 inches, which is about five inches larger all around.

iv) What are the two types of bedding?

The are two types of bedding, namely flat and fitted. The fitted bedding is made to fit snug around the mattress and has an elastic band that raps around the mattress. A flat bedding does not fit around the mattress and does not have an elastic band around it. The flat bedding is slightly harder to spread compared to the fit option.

End note

The process of selecting an ideal full-size bedding set holds utmost significance as it significantly influences both the quality of your sleep and the overall ambiance of your bedroom. The market presents a diverse range of options, catering to individual preferences encompassing comfort, style, affordability, or a combination of all. By investing in a top-tier bedding set for your bedroom design, you not only elevate the visual appeal of your bedroom but also establish an inviting and conducive environment for unwinding and revitalization.
