When buying bed linen we must consider numerous factors, which is the size of the sheets, the material and the color of the fabric. First, we think the size of bed and mattress, distinguishing between one and half double, or single, as well as the smaller sizes for baby cots. We will have to buy a pillowcase for pillows, mattress covers, bedding or duvet covers and bedspreads. Depending on the season, we’ll have to add one or more blankets and down, to keep the heat inside, also you may want to purchase an extra mattress for mattress, to be placed under one where we sleep, and a cover of hygienic. We can then add decorative plaid or for extra pillows as an ornament of the bed.
