The joy of getting into a freshly made bed with soft, comfortable bedding can make all the difference in getting a good night’s rest. In addition, buying bed linens is also a way to transition and decorate your bedrooms and guest rooms from season to season. With so many bedding companies selling everything from bamboo sheets to hand-made quilts, though, it can be overwhelming to decide where to shop for your next favorite set of sheets or the perfect winter blanket. 

We dug deep under the covers to review myriad retailers, comparing (and trying out) bedding options from wool blankets to delicate pillowcases, to create a list of 15 of the best one-stop shops for bedding, based on each shop’s selection of comfort, style, affordability, and products. No matter your budget, we recommend building the bedding wardrobe of your linen closet’s dreams.

L.L. Bean

If you’re searching for soft flannel sheets, woolen camp blankets, and classic New England styles, L.L. Bean, a Maine mainstay, is a great place to shop for affordable, comfortable, and well-made bedding. Some of the styles may seem nostalgic, like its blueberry patterned sheets (think coastal grandma) or buffalo checked throw blankets (cabin chic), so if you’re looking for silk or satin bedding or all-organic bedding, this might not be the shop for you. However, their classic designs (nautical stripes, solids, checks, and sweet florals) and flannel sheets, quality quits, and made-in-Maine blankets will likely last years with the proper care.

Schoolhouse sells heavy cotton coverlets (i.e., blankets) that look good on a bed and will keep you somewhat warm, especially if you add one of Schoolhouse’s vintage-inspired cotton quilts in polka dots or diamond ticking.

The rest of the bedding line leans toward neutral shades for the weighted blankets, comforters, and duvets, which are made of eco-friendly, recycled materials in both down and down alternatives. It can get expensive just for sheets, but Brooklinen lets you personalize (and save on) bedding bundles so you can choose your colors and give your set a personal color touch.

What to consider before buying bedding 

Your bedding budget

Bedding can get expensive when sheets alone at quality retailers cost hundreds of dollars. Watch for sales on your favorite fabrics and designs to minimize the cost. It’s worth considering that high-quality bedding (that’s well cared for) will last longer than a set of cheap sheets. In addition, comfortable bedding may enhance your sleep experience, which is crucial for good health. Decide where you can save and where you can splurge for your bedding. 

Here’s a tip for saving money: Sometimes, kids' bedding is less expensive than its grown-up counterpart. If you sleep in a full or queen-sized bed, it can be worth searching kid bedding for sheets and blankets. Not everything for children is branded and some patterns might work great for an older kid or adult’s room. 

Bedding sets

Buying your bedding in bulk by purchasing sets can save more than when buying individual items. Consider purchasing one with a full set of sheets, extra pillowcases, and a duvet or comforter

Bed size 

Make sure you have the measurements of all your beds before purchasing sheets. Sometimes, what looks like a twin is a twin x-large, and some kids’ (and grown-up) beds, especially, may have slightly less-than-standard sizes, depending on the manufacturer. When in doubt, check out our guide to mattress sizes and bed dimensions.

Fabrics

Some like linen, while others prefer cotton. In the winter, brushed flannel may appeal. If you have allergies to feathers, it is advisable to stay away from down. Look for Oeko-Tex certification, especially if you have sensitive skin. 

How we selected the best places to buy bedding

To choose the best places to buy bedding, we reviewed multiple national retailers as if we were purchasing bedding for our own rooms. We interviewed friends and colleagues, asked interior designers about their favorite places to shop, and included a review of the following:

  • Retailer’s selection of fabrics, prints, and colors 
  • Selection of bedding options and how many products are available
  • Advertised prices and available discounts 
  • Ease of ordering 
  • Return policy 
  • Pricing (on individual items and bundles)
  • Whether or not they offered Oeko-Tex certification and organic options
  • Customer service reviews

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

What’s the best time to buy bedding?

Experts say January is the best time to save big on bedding, but also check out end-of-summer sales and stock your linen closet for next year. 

What makes high-quality bedding?

Durable fabrics like linen that can help regulate your body temperature in both cool and warm weather, organic and Oeko-Tex certified cotton, and natural materials like bamboo and silk are all high-quality bedding. Often, the type of fabric and how the manufacturer uses it determines if a piece of bedding is “high quality” or not. 

What type of bedding lasts the longest?

According to data from the Better Sleep Council, the average consumer will replace their sheet sets approximately every 3.5 to 3.7 years, but some quality bedding will last longer. It’s a good rule of thumb to assume that organic cotton, linen, or bamboo blends may last longer than polyester blended sheets. 

Handmade or high-quality quilts and wool blankets can last decades (or even generations in some cases) if cared for properly over their lifetime. In terms of long-lasting bedding, the higher the quality, the longer it will last. 

Is a higher thread count better?

Not necessarily, because of the many factors that go into making a great sheet. For example, Egyptian cotton may have a higher thread count than a standard cotton sheet, but the real reason it’s so comfortable is that it’s woven from long fibers. Organic cotton will have a softer feel and even more longevity, whatever the thread counts, because it is free from pesticides and other chemicals that may keep it from being as soft as its natural counterpart. Of course, when it comes to bedding, whatever helps you get a good night’s sleep and feels good to your body ultimately counts the most. For more info on choosing the best sheets for your preferences, check out our guide to finding out the best thread count for sheets.
