The best bed sheets have a lot of work to do in your bedroom to ensure you get a great night's sleep. They need to be soft yet breathable, easy to put on but stay in place all night, and, of course, bed sheets need to wash well to keep their color and shape. 

Our overall best pick is the Mayfair Linen 100% Egyptian cotton sheets: you just can't go wrong with the quality and breathability of real cotton. See more of our favorites below.

Mayfair Linen 100% Egyptian Cotton Sheets

Amazing quality bed sheets for the perfect night's sleep

These luxurious and all-natural bed sheets are what every bedroom needs.

Pros:

  • Amazing quality
  • 100% cotton
  • Deep fitting
  • Sateen finish

Cons:

  • Can't be washed on hot cycles

The Mayfair Linen 100% Egyptian cotton sheets are a real treat for any bedroom: cotton is a breathable fabric, and here it's been finished to a smooth, sateen feel, which makes these sheets feel like butter. Owners of nice thick mattresses will appreciate the deep fit of the sheets, and the choice of colors is truly amazing. One thing we will say is these sheets don't wash well in hot temperatures – you'll likely get pilling. So, always machine wash cold or lukewarm. 

Best microfiber set

Mellanni Bed Sheet Set

Our top wrinkle-free option

These sheets need no ironing and are very, very soft to the touch.

Pros:

  • Super soft feel
  • No wrinkles
  • Lovely detailing
  • Affordable

Cons:

  • Not as breathable as cotton
  • The fitted sheets move around a bit

The Mellanni Bed Sheet Set is made from high-quality brushed microfiber (believe us when we say not all microfiber is created equal), and are a great option if you like you sheets easy care and inexpensive. We really appreciate the fancy trim on these, which makes them look much more expensive than they are. That said, they are made from polyester, so they won't give you quite the same level of breathability as cotton, so you might want to save them for the colder months.

Best organic sheets

Bampure Organic Bamboo Sheets

This set is made from sustainable bamboo

Breathable, soft, and organic, these sheets are our top choice for the environmentally conscious.

Pros:

  • Chemical free production
  • Very breathable material
  • Range of colors

Cons:

  • Will need to wash them before they feel good

The Bampure Organic Bamboo Sheets should definitely be on your radar if you have sensitive skin, are concerned about pesticide residue on your bed sheets, or just want to make a more environmentally-friendly choice. These Bampure sheets are made from 100 percent chemical free bamboo cellulose and are OEKO-Tex certified. Bamboo is a breathable material that prevents you from overheating and is soft and almost silky to the touch. However, these sheets may not feel all that nice just after you've opened them: wash them before use to get the best texture and feel.

Best linen blend option

Dapu Linen Cotton blend sheets

Our top luxury pick

These bed sheets offer great quality and texture. They're organic, too.

Pros:

  • Extremely comfortable
  • High quality
  • Organic

Cons:

  • Cannot be tumble dried

The Dapu Linen Cotton blend sheets will delight those of you who are really picky about your sheets. Somehow, by blending linen and cotton, Dapu have achieved perfection here. Linen on its own is not for everyone, as it can get very wrinkly and can feel a little bit scratchy. By blending French linen with long-staple cotton, the manufacturer has created an amazing texture: a tiny bit grainy like linen, but also smooth.  A word of warning: do not tumble dry these sheets, or they will shrink. Air drying is always best

Best satin set

Honeymoon Luxurious Satin 4-Piece Bed Sheet Set

Honeymoon Luxurious Satin 4-Piece Bed Sheet Set

Our favorite silky feel sheets

A very affordable set that comes in a range of colors.

Pros:

  • Silky feel and look
  • Very affordable

  • Not real silk
  • Snag easily

The aptly named Honeymoon satin sheets will transform how you feel in bed: they are silky and very smooth and drape really prettily on the bed. They're made from polyester, but the polyester is of good quality, giving these sheets a very realistic silk effect. This high-quality fabric does snag easily, though, in the same way that real silk can, so bear that in mind when washing.
