After a long journey, is there anything more inviting than a comfy-looking bed with crisp white bed linen? There are a number of reasons why hotels choose white bedding over any other colour, and when you hear why, you’ll definitely want to do the same…
1. White Is Versatile
White bed linen always looks modern and fresh, which is why so many hotels opt for this look. If your decor is timeless, it’s far more economical because you don’t need to spend money on a new look each season. Plus, white works well with any colour scheme and you can easily add luxurious layers (like faux fur throws) for texture and depth.
Although it can seem like a daunting choice if you have small children, pets, or an unsteady hand, white bed linen is anything but boring. In fact, a bed covered in white sheets and pillows gives you the ideal opportunity to be creative when it comes to choosing (and changing) your bedroom’s colour scheme. A white bed is a blank canvas that you can build on and have fun with, changing your decor whenever the mood hits. It also ensures that your bed remains the main focus of your bedroom.
2. It Appeals To Everyone
Another reason why hotels use white bedding is because it is the perfect balance between masculine and feminine decor. This means no more arguing over the floral duvet or the pink scatter cushions between you and your other half. For this same reason, stylish white bedding is a great choice for the guest bedroom as it will feel comfortable for whoever is staying the night.
3. It’s Soothing
White is the perfect choice for a bed because it’s calming and relaxing. There’s nothing better than sinking into a luxurious and comfortable spot that looks as good as it sleeps, which is why hotels the world over swear by this. What would you prefer: a crisp, white sleep sanctuary, or a bright and busy duvet that is more likely to give you a headache than lull you to sleep?
4. It Looks Luxurious
Probably one of the biggest reasons why hotels choose white for their bed linen is because it gives the impression of absolute luxury. It instantly creates that look of a stylish boutique hotel, and whether or not your thread count is high, your bed will look as lavish as if it was sitting in any five-star joint.
5. Proves Purity
However, there is one major reason why white bedding is the number one choice for hotels – it always looks clean. To prove that your bed for the night is free from dirt and grime, a hotel uses white sheets as these will show germs and spots immediately. The good news for you is that bed linen is easily washed, so there’s no need to fear using it in your own home.
So the next time you’re looking for a quick (and affordable) way to update your bedroom for the new season, choose white sheets for a chic and timeless look.
