Thread Count – How to buy the quality sheets you are looking for.

Thread count – How to buy the quality sheets you are looking for.

When purchasing sheets most people choose sheets with the higher thread count.

It turns out this is misinformation designed to sell at retail level and really has nothing to do with the quality of the sheets you want to sleep on.

There are a maximum number of threads that can fit into fabric depending on the quality of the cotton used and that number is generally less than 400, so there are a lot of questions to answer when you see sheets advertised with 1000 or 1200 thread count.

So what’s going on?

A thread count explains the total number of threads per square inch of fabric, counting both horizontal and vertical threads.  Theoretically the higher the thread count, the higher quality and softer the sheets.

Some manufacturers are now counting multi-ply threads, which may produce higher numbers. In reality to achieve a higher thread count and keep the misinformed consumer happy, manufacturers are using a lower grade of cotton that becomes very thin when spun.  Here is the explanation – They twist the thread around itself to create a ‘multi-ply’ thread.  When using, for example, a 2-ply thread and weave it to 300 thread count (150 horizontal, 150 vertical) it becomes a 600 thread count sheet and that is the way it is marketed for retail.

Imagine when a 4-ply thread is woven as a 200 thread count and sold as 800 thread count.  A regular ply 300 thread count would feel better and last longer.  The problem is that consumers are conditioned to always buy a higher thread count.

Higher thread count does not guarantee better sheets.

Are all cottons equal?

Experts say that organic cotton, Egyptian cotton and Pima cotton are the best choices over synthetic materials that don’t breathe as well as natural fabrics.

The term ‘Egyptian Cotton’ refers to a plant called Gossypium barbadense, which grows along the Nile River in Egypt.  This plant is known for its extra-long staple length (the length of the strand of cotton the plant produces).  Unfortunately, modern manufacturers realised that customers were looking for ‘Egyptian Cotton’ when purchasing bedding, so they stretched the definition.

Most so-called Egyptian cotton is either a sub-par cotton grown in Eygpt or Gossypium barbadense that isn’t grown in Eygpt but Pakistan, China or India.

To conclude – Australian consumers need to re-educate themselves and put less emphasis on thread count, and more on the quality, softness and durability of the sheets they are considering purchasing.

An introduction to Upholstered (Fabric) Bedheads

An introduction to Upholstered (Fabric) Bedheads

There are many people in Australia who are interested in bedroom remodeling, but they are postponing this activity because they believe that they’ll have to spend a small fortune on it. This is not true because sometimes even a small change can make a huge difference in the appearance and functionality of one of the most important rooms in every home.

One of the most convenient and most efficient ways to improve the bedroom is to check the furniture. There is no doubt that almost every homeowner can buy a new side table, desk or closet. But, one of the pieces of furniture that usually stays in the bedroom for a long time is the bed. This is also the focal point of this area. In most cases, homeowners decide to buy a new bed only when this piece of furniture has lost its most important properties or it is damaged beyond repair.

Truth be told, beds last almost forever, it is the mattresses that we need to change from time to time. (1) On top of that, most of the bed is usually covered with sheets and blankets, but there is one part that is visible – the bedhead. This is where you can invest in when you want to modify your bed.

Namely, you can create a big improvement in your bed’s and bedroom’s appearance if you purchase a new upholstered bedhead. There are leather and fabric bedheads, but most people opt for fabric because they are more affordable and come in different styles. Most home designers pay special attention to this detail, so you should take it into consideration too.

Now let’s highlight some reasons why you should choose upholstered bedheads. To start with, they are good for your safety. Almost every individual has experienced that awful feeling caused by hitting the back of the head on the bedhead (or directly on the wall if there is no bedhead present at all). Thanks to the upholstered bedhead you can avoid situations like this. The fabric makes the area soft and pleasant and protects your head and neck. Keep in mind that there are bedheads with different designs, so you can find bedheads with pointed corners and hard edges for example. The use of soft upholstery can help you avoid accidents.

Some people want to watch TV or read a good book before they fall asleep. It is quite natural to rely on the bedhead while you are involved in these activities. But, if the surface is rough, you won’t feel comfortable. Upholstered bedheads let you keep good posture. (2) Finally, upholstered bedheads are available in different colors and designs, so you can easily match them with the overall style in this room.

The bedheads in our offer are quite stylish and based on the current trends. Of course, they are not too trendy, so you don’t have to worry that you will buy a bedhead that will become outdated. In addition, they are free standing and they appeal to all bedrooms. If you live in Perth, Sydney or Melbourne, feel free to contact us at any time on 1300 349 771.

Change the Atmosphere in your bedroom

Posted on

Have you been thinking of remodelling your bedroom? Changing the look and feel of your bedroom doesn’t mean you have to change everything.  Sometimes, just one new addition can have a huge impact on the appeal of your room. Check around your room first before planning a big remodelling project. Do you think it’s time for a huge make-over? Or does it only need a few simple changes to get the result you are looking for?

Furniture Items in the Room

One of the easiest and most efficient ways of improving the appeal of your room is to take stock of the furniture you have in it. Your closets, nightstands, and dressers are easy to replace with new items. This can give you an entirely new look all together.

Now, let’s take a look at your bed. You cannot really just buy a new bed when you want to change the appeal of your room. That can be pretty expensive. One way to change the look of your bed is to take a look at the various bedheads, and headboards available. This is a great way to give your room an entirely new look without remodelling the entire thing.

You can make a huge improvement in the appeal of your room by getting an upholstered bedhead or even a decorative one that adds a new feel to your room. Perth Bed Heads can give you the new look and feel you are going for to change the atmosphere of your bedroom.

Design Features

Headboards come in a variety of styles, designs, and colours. This gives you the ability to match your current bedroom theme to the look and feel of your new bedheads. Allow your headboard to be the centre of attention, the accent of the room. It can have a bold and bright colour that creates a visual point that attracts visitors right away. You may want to also purchase a new bed set to match your new bedhead in your room.


If you want to change the atmosphere and appeal of your bedroom, you don’t have to take on a huge renovation project. Instead changing up a few simple pieces such as a new dresser or adding in a new bold coloured bedhead in your room can give you the look you are trying to achieve.

Simple changes like these can make all the difference when you are trying to design an entirely new room. The nice part about just adding a new bedhead is that the expense can stay budget-friendly instead of the huge expenses that come along with taking on a large renovation and remodelling project in your bedroom.
