Nowadays flat sheets and fitted bed sheets are used for the same purpose – to protect the mattress and make smooth surface for lying. The owner of the bed linen has to decide if the bed sheet has to pull snugly over the mattress, so that it cannot be easily pulled off, or it has to fold easily and neatly when not in use – as these are the main differences of these bedding linen pieces.
But those seeking truly luxurious sleeping experience and enjoying a traditional way of using bed linen, have to know what flat sheets and fitted sheets were originally used for (and are used, for that matter).

In spite of which type of a purchaser you are, you might want to know several things about how to buy bed linen in order to spend your money wise and save your time and effort.

Table linen is an investment – you pay not only for a piece of cloth but for your mood, the atmosphere and this classy feeling you get when the setting for the mealtime is so elegant.
