When it comes down to it, it seems like we spend most of our lives either at work on in bed, doesn't it? So it stands to reason that we should feel extremely motivated to make our beds into a total sanctuary—a retreat from the world that is comfortable, cozy and stylish, too.
Ahead, we're breaking down our 10 favorite (and most highly-recommended places to shop for bedding both in stores and online—from boutique brands to department stores.

For bed basics and beyond—you'll find whatever you're looking for at Bed, Bath & Beyond. You can literally build your bed from the ground up if necessary, they have frames, mattresses, memory foam toppers, canopies and of course—sheets, duvets and blankets.
Prices range from basic and affordable (as low as $10 for a sale twin-size sheet set) to luxury investment bedding (Frette at Home sheet sets start around $300).

Is there anything we don't rely on Target for in our everyday lives? Target is our go-to for affordable home goods, especially bedding. When it comes to bedding they have everything you could possibly need to start your bedroom over from scratch or simply update your linens for the season.
Prices vary at Target but err largely on the side of extremely affordable—especially given their frequent sales. Notable brands include Casper, and there's a whole section online devoted to sheet sets... under $25. We also love their in-house collections of on-trend linens from Threshold and Nate Berkus for Target.

Following in the footsteps of successful DTC (Direct to Customer) brands like Warby Parker and Everlane, Brooklinen is an online-only linen company that's trying to change how we shop for bedding. Sheets and duvet covers can be purchased together in stylish mix-and-match bundles so you can choose a combination of patterns and solid colors that suit your style. They also supply pillows, comforters, candles and throws to complete your perfect bedroom vibe.
Brooklinen's classic sheet set... starts at $164, and limited edition collections (like their sprezzatura-inspired summer linen collection) starts at $345. Comforters start at $199 and pillows at $69.

Designed in Venice Beach, California and manufactured by artisans around the globe—Parachute Home's bedding collections are a modern minimalist's dream come true. Sheets (available in percale, sateen and linen), duvets, comforters are all in washed out and neutral hues like white, beige, light blue and subtle pinstripes. Since launching with bedding, Parachute has expanded to include bath linens, bed frames and throw pillows, tabletop linens and more.
Parachute Home first made a name for... themselves by marketing a bed setup without a top sheet—just the fitted sheet and a super-soft duvet, so you can buy individual top sheets or pillow case sets starting at $50 and build your collection from there, or a bundle of a fitted sheet and pillow cases starting at $169.Continue to 5 of 10 below.

If your bedding could use a heavy dose of color or print—DwellStudio should be your first stop. Their sheet sets come in modern and vibrant prints that will make your bed the standout piece in your bedroom, and same goes for the duvet covers. (Our personal favorite right now has to be this Peacock Citrine print, on sale for $129.)
Prices range from bedding basics like a down alternative comforter at $110 to printed sheet sets at about $140.

Another great place to source your complete bedding needs, Overstock is brimming with affordable and high-quality options for mattresses, bed frames and headboards, sheet sets, duvets and pillows.
It can be overwhelming to browse their giant selection, but Overstock has given you a head start by sorting their sheet collections by fabric as well as size and further filters on the side of the page allow you to select thread count, price and brand.
Mattresses can be shopped by "bed in a box,"... sets, memory foam, hybrid and even latex—with prices as low as $89 for a twin 6" mattress and going over $1000 for king-size Beautyrest mattresses.

Just like their apparel collections, Zara Home's linens and bedding are on-trend and affordable. Sheet and pillowcases can be purchased individually, and come in fun colors and patterns that perfectly complement their duvet covers and quilts.
Zara prices are incredibly reasonable, and they're having a huge summer sale right now—with quilts as low as $10 and duvet covers starting at $20.

For a timeless, classic bedroom look, Pottery Barn should be your go-to source of linens, sheets, blankets and bed skirts. Not to mention, their beds and headboards are sophisticated and naturally, a bit of an investment. (Prices start at about $500.) You'll find luxury sheet sets and basics as well, many of which can be monogrammed for a personal (and preppy!) touch.Continue to 9 of 10 below.

Modern and sophisticated, Restoration Hardware's bedding offerings are hard to resist. We love their hotel collection sheets and duvets that will make every night feel like a getaway. Our favorite designs are pure white with rich embroidery on the borders (starting at about $100 for a sheet set) that can be personalized, too.

What you might call the 'OG' in our list of the best places to buy bedding shopping, Macy's has everything. The prints and patterns aren't the most trendy, but the Martha Stewart and Tommy Hilfiger collections have some great-looking options. Macy's should be your go to for all the basics like down comforters, mattress pads, and basic sheets.
