The flat sheet
In most homes, a flat sheet is used as a top sheet or referred to as one by that term. This is a sheet that is placed in the middle of your blanket and the body. In doing so, the body wouldn’t be pricked by the pesky fibres of the blanket, and makes the bed very inviting to jump into. Top sheets or flat sheets also keep the dirt away, which means the blankets don’t gather dust and grime.

A fitted sheet is one that covers a bed or a mattress in totality, sparing no inches to go bare around. With elastic sewn into the bed furnishing at each corner, it is exactly the concept of using elastics that hold the sheet in its place- hence the name ‘fitted’. Such sheets are sold solely or with open stocks to clear, and some sell it as a complete bed furnishing set too. With the help of a fitted sheet, the blanket or the individual sleeping on it doesn’t have grime, dust and dirt settling on them! The skin is given a soft treat to enjoy in chic jacquards and stripe bed sheets!
Differences between flat an fitted sheets
- While flat sheets are flat, and they fold easily with utmost neatness, fitted sheets on the other hand can be a challenge to do the same. They have elastic corners which don’t allow the sheet to lie down smooth and flat, and one has to pull the sheet across the mattress for it to stay put!
- Flat sheets are placed over fitted sheets, while the latter keeps the mattress safe from dust, dirt and grime.
- Flat sheets are the reason why the bed looks so inviting, and they do not need regular washing and can be used as a cover when the climes aren’t too cold or hot!
- Fitted sheets do not follow the ‘one size fits all’ rule. If they do not pull snugly over a certain mattress type, and if they aren’t tucked into each edge too, or if they aren’t pulled off easily, the purpose then remains redundant to say the least.
