​When it comes down to it, it seems like we spend most of our lives either at work or in bed, doesn't it? So it stands to reason that we should feel motivated to make our beds into a total sanctuary—a retreat from the world that is comfortable, cozy, and stylish, too.

"Bedding can either play a huge role and be the focal point of your bedroom design, or it can be soft and subdued and be a simple element to the whole design," says Modsy Creative Marketing Associate Katherine Bitner. "Knowing which role you want your bedding to play in the design is step one in determining color, texture, and pattern."

Whether you're just furnishing your first place or ready to upgrade the bed you've had for years, we've got you. We're breaking down our favorite (and most highly-recommended) places to shop for bedding both in stores and online, based on important factors to consider including pricing, the range of different materials and products, and return policies.

Here, the best places to buy bedding.

Brooklinen

What we like
  • Relatively affordable prices

  • Limited edition designs

  • Last Chance sale section

  • Excellent return policy

What we don't like
  • Can't request fabric samples

Following in the footsteps of successful direct-to-consumer brands like Warby Parker and Everlane, Brooklinen is an online bedding company (with one store location in Brooklyn) that offers luxury bedding at more affordable prices, with limited edition launches throughout the year to keep inventory interesting. Take note that although their products still aren't exactly cheap, they are good prices for the quality—and there are sales throughout the year.

Sheets, comforters, 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, blankets, and candles to complete your perfect bedroom. Perhaps best of all, Brooklinen offers a full 365 day return window, so you've got plenty of time to make sure your new bedding is perfect.

What Editors Say

"I am a big advocate of Brooklinen's bedding sets and have bought at least five different sets in the last several years. I love that I can rely on this brand for an array of subtle, modern patterns that seem created for my generation rather than my grandparents'. I also really appreciate that Brooklinen doesn't force me to buy a top sheet that I'll never use, and that their customer service is top-notch (I once accidentally tore a fitted sheet and they quickly sent me a replacement)."—Mélanie Berliet, General Manager

Parachute

What we like
  • Good range of on-trend colors

  • Top sheet is optional

  • 10 brick and mortar stores nationwide

  • Can order fabric swatches

What we don't like
  • Last Chance sale section can only be shopped by members

  • No patterned options

Designed in Venice Beach, California, and manufactured by artisans around the globe, Parachute's bedding collections are a modern minimalist's dream come true. Sheets (available in percale, sateen, and linen) and duvet covers 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 and even a mattress, plus throw pillows, tabletop linens, and more—all with their signature beachy, coastal vibe.

"Personally, I love Parachute bedding. The quality is top-notch for the price point, and the textures they offer are so subtle but absolutely beautiful in any style space," Bitner says.

Parachute first made a name for themselves by marketing a bed setup without a top sheet—just the fitted sheet and a super-soft duvet. You can still buy a top sheet if you so prefer, but it's not a requirement. Prices are similar to Brooklinen's—not exactly cheap, but much less expensive than other luxury brands. Return policy is 60 days, and doesn't include Final Sale items.

West Elm

What we like
  • Lots of options, including hard to find fabrics

  • Large sale section

  • Store locations nationwide

What we don't like
  • Range of color options varies depending on product

  • Short return window

With a wide selection of modern bedding, West Elm is a go-to for chic sheet sets, duvet covers, blankets, quilts, and more. You’ll find bedding made from high-quality fabrics like organic cotton, TENCEL, linen, and flannel, to name a few, and the muted color options are sure to complement your bedroom decor. This is a great place to find stylish bedding for babies and kids, too. Prices vary, and the store often offers discounts—although it's only a 30-day return window, which is a bit shorter than other retailers.

Bed Bath & Beyond

Courtesy of Bed, Bath & Beyond
What we like
  • Frequent discounts

  • Store locations nationwide

  • Same day delivery for some products from local stores

What we don't like
  • Quality is hit or miss

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, pillows, and blankets. Prices range from basic and affordable to luxury investment bedding, like Frette at Home sheet sets. Take advantage of BB&B's coupons to save, and rest easy knowing you have 90 days to return something if it doesn't work for you.

"My biggest piece of advice is to not use bedding 'sets'. Mix and match texture, sizes, and colors for bedding and throws for a unique and curated look," Bitner says. "If you don't love the idea of making a bed every day with several layers of pillows and throws, you can opt for a clean look with just one throw pillow or a throw blanket, or even decorative shams for a fresh look."

Crane & Canopy

Crane & Canopy’s Bright White 500 Thread Count Percale Cotton Sheet Set

What We Like
  • Wide variety of luxurious fabrics on offer

  • Monogramming available

  • Patterned and textured duvet covers available

What We Don't Like
  • Strict return policy

For a wide selection of luxurious bedding, look no further than Crane & Canopy. Their sheets, duvet covers, and quilts are available in a wide variety of high-quality fabrics, and you can even order swatches to help you decide on the fabric, color, or pattern that's right for your bed. Crane & Canopy is best known for their sateen sheets, but they recently added crisp percale sheets and duvet covers to their collection, which are made from long-staple Egyptian cotton woven in Italy.

This is an especially great place to shop if you want colorful bedding. Crane & Canopy offers bedding in a range of colors and patterns, making it the ideal destination for maximalists who want to avoid all-white bedding. Prices are on the expensive side, and the return policy is a strict 30 days, with monogrammed items ineligible for return.

L.L. Bean

What We Like
  • Excellent return policy

  • Classic designs

  • OEKO-TEX certified

What We Don't Like
  • No sateen cotton sheets on offer

L.L. Bean may be known for their outdoorsy clothing, bags, and footwear, but they also excel at quality bedding for the great indoors. Their flannel sheets in particular are some of the best on the market, but they also have a wide variety of cotton percale sheets in a range of serene colors and classic patterns. You can also find top-notch down and down alternative comforters, plus well-made quilts and coverlets.

Great customer service is another selling point, and all of their bedding has a generous one-year return window. Prices are comparable to popular DTC brands, but vary depending on the product.

Pottery Barn

Courtesy of Pottery Barn
What we like
  • Good range of organic/eco-friendly options

  • Store locations nationwide

  • Collaborations with top designers

What we don't like
  • Short return window

  • Unclear supply chain

For a timeless bedroom look, Pottery Barn should be your go-to source for linens like sheets, blankets, and bed skirts. Not to mention their beds and headboards are sophisticated and, naturally, a bit of an investment. You'll find luxury sheet sets and basics as well, many of which can be monogrammed for a personal (and preppy!) touch. Aside from sheets, Pottery Barn's selection of quilts and comforters is particularly good.

Pottery Barn has also made strides with sustainability lately, and many of their bedding product are certified organic (although the supply chain itself is a bit unclear). Prices are surprisingly affordable (depending on the product), and the return window is 30 days.

Casper

What we like
  • Good range of color options

  • Also available on Amazon and at Target

What we don't like
  • Only three types of sheets available

  • Only the sateen sheets are OEKO-TEX certified

By now you've probably heard of Casper, and you might even own one of their mattresses—made famous because they arrive at your door in a box small enough to carry and fit through any doorway. Naturally, Casper soon developed pillows to accompany their mattresses, so it makes sense that the innovative brand also launched its own line of bedding soon after, including sheet sets, duvets, and mattress covers.

The sheet sets come in three fabric options: percale, sateen, and TENCEL. Their soft, washed-out colors include minty green, faded charcoal, nude, and of course, crisp white. You can also find silk pillowcases to really complete the luxe bed of your dreams. Prices are on the high end, and every purchase has a 30-day trial period.

Anthropologie

Anthropologie

What we like
  • Boho-chic bedding in eye-catching prints

  • Store locations nationwide

  • Carries other brands including Coyuchi and Peacock Alley

What we don't like
  • Can be a bit pricey

  • Bedding cannot be returned to stores, only mailed back

For boho-inspired sheet sets, duvet covers, throw blankets, pillows, and more, Anthropologie has you covered. The store offers a wide selection of bedding in eye-catching prints, colors, and textures, like embellished sheet sets and fringed duvet covers. You won't find very many bedding basics, but Anthropologie does sell a few pillows and duvet inserts, as well as actually nice-looking bed skirts.

Prices vary but are typically on the high end, so it’s a great place to find a statement piece to upgrade your bedroom decor, like a quilt or duvet cover. The return policy is 60 days, but take note that you can only ship back bedding—stores won't accept any bedding.

Serena & Lily

Serena & Lily

What we like
  • High quality

  • Several patterned options

  • Can order swatches

What we don't like
  • Limited colors (mostly blue and white)

  • Expensive

Serena & Lily is the place to find bedding with crisp, coastal-inspired style. Most of the sheet sets come in white or beachy blue with subtle embellishments and patterns, but you can also find some solid sheets in colors like pink or fog gray. One perk is that you can outfit your entire bed with an essential bedding set, which includes a duvet cover, sheet set, and sham, or just pick up a basic new sheet set.

If you want to totally upgrade your bed, Serena & Lily recently launched a luxury bed made with latex and New Zealand wool fill. Prices are definitely on the high end, especially the linen options, but the quality is top-notch, and the return policy is 60 days.

Pine Cone Hill

What we like
  • Easy to shop by category

  • Lots of patterns and colors

What we don't like
  • Can be a bit pricey

With a focus on comfort, color, and understated elegance, the bedding collections at Pine Cone Hill have something for everyone. The sheet sets are easy to shop by category, with solid, printed, classic white, flannel, embroidered, and luxury options all accounted for. The retailer also has everything you need to make your bed super comfy, including duvet covers, comforter sets, coverlets, pillows, mattress pads, and more. 

Unlike other retailers, Pine Cone Hill offers plenty of colors and patterns, making it a great spot for maximalists to check out. Take note that prices are on the high end, but there is a sale section. The return window is 60 days, not including sale and monogrammed items.

Garnet Hill

Garnet Hill

What we like
  • Has extra-deep sizes

  • Lots of patterns and colors

  • Unlimited returns

What we don't like
  • Most sheets are unavailable as a set

Looking for a company that focuses on sustainable, eco-friendly fibers? Head over to Garnet Hill, where you’ll find bedding made from linen, TENCEL, organic cotton, and more. Much of their bedding is OEKO-TEX certified and free from harmful substances, and you can find sheets, duvet covers, quilts, coverlets, shams, blankets, and other essentials in a range of colors and prints. Hint: One of the company’s signature products is their all-season European flannel sheet sets.

The only downside is that most of the pieces aren't sold as a set, so it's not as easy to determine just how much you're spending. On the other hand, this is great if you want to mix and match or only buy one replacement item. Prices are pretty affordable though, and the return window is unlimited.

The Company Store

What we like
  • Deep pocket and wrinkle-resistant options

  • Tons of color options

  • Referral program

What we don't like
  • Not every collection can be purchased as a set

The Company Store is a great place to shop for cozy comforters, bed linens, pillows, mattress toppers and pads, and other bedding basics. They're most known for their variety of down and down alternative comforters in a range of weights, sizes, and colors, but their sheet collections are just as impressive.

They have sheets in all types of materials and colors, with a mix of sets and individually-sold bedding basics. Many of their top sheets, fitted sheets, and pillowcases are sold separately, which comes in handy if you prefer sleeping without a top sheet, for example. Prices vary depending on the product, and the return window is 90 days.

Macy's

What we like
  • Store locations nationwide

  • Frequent sales and deals

  • Tons of brands to shop

What we don't like
  • Quality is hit or miss

What you might call the "OG" on our list, Macy's has everything. There are prints and patterns galore, although the styles veer more traditional than trendy—but this is an unbeatable place to find budget-friendly basics. Macy's also stands out for its in-house labels, including the Martha Stewart and Charter Club collections, which are must-sees.

Macy's also has hundreds of down comforters, mattress pads, and pillows, so you can easily find whatever you need. Prices are affordable, especially with the retailer's frequent sales, and there's a 90-day return policy.

What to Look for When Buying Bedding

Range of Products

Our list of the best places to shop for bedding includes smaller direct-to-consumer brands that specialize in certain materials or offer exclusive colors and patterns, as well as larger stores that have just about everything. If you're shopping for a specialty size such as Twin XL or Split-King, you'll likely have more luck at larger retailers such as Macy's. Also consider whether or not you need a full sheet set or just one piece of bedding, as there are places that only sell products individually. And if you want to buy all your bedding in one go, look at places that also sell comforters, pillows, and blankets so you can get everything in one place.

Price

One of the fastest ways to decide where to shop for bedding is just to consider your budget. Many of our top picks offer high-quality bedding at accessible prices, with some (like Macy's) offering frequent discounts and sales. If you're looking for the absolute best quality out there, though, prepare to pay a premium. Ultra-luxury sheets and other bedding is less likely to go on sale, but you will be investing in sheets that should last for years and years with proper care.

Return Policy

Return policies vary greatly when it comes to bedding, but it's important—especially when you're buying something you haven't seen in person. Some of our top picks offer a very lenient policy, giving you plenty of time to try out your sheets before the return window closes. Others are more strict, with as little as seven days to try out your new bedding. Also take note of any quirks in the policy, such as only being able to return bedding via mail instead of in-store. One good way to decrease the chance of returning? Some retailers offer free swatches, so you can test out colors and materials before committing.

FAQs

What bedding do I need?

Everyone's bedding preferences are different, but at the very least you'll need a fitted sheet, pillowcases, and a cover of some sort. In Europe, it's more common to forego a flat sheet and use a removable, washable duvet cover instead. This is becoming a more popular approach in the U.S., which is reflected in the many retailers on our lists who offer sheet sets without a top sheet. A more traditional American sheet set will include a fitted sheet, top sheet, and one or two (depending on bed size) pillowcases. If you prefer to sleep with more pillows, be sure to order extra pillowcases or matching shams.

When it comes to choosing a cover, it mostly comes down to your temperature preference. A heavy-duty duvet insert in down or down alternative is the warmest option, and can be made even warmer with extra blankets. A coverlet, or quilt, is a good option for hot sleepers, as is a lightweight duvet with a breathable cover made of linen or percale cotton.

How often should I replace my bedding?

Plan to replace sheets, duvet covers, and pillows about once every two to three years, depending on quality and how often they're in regular rotation on your bed. Duvet inserts can last much longer; a high-quality down duvet insert can last up to 25 years if properly cared for and professionally cleaned. Basically, once you notice regular signs of wear and tear such as yellowing or any slightly frayed edges, it's time for a refresh. Always be sure to follow the manufacturer's care instructions to extend the life of your bedding—washing and drying sheets on the wrong cycles can cause them to shrink, warp, or loose their luster.

What are the most common materials for sheets?

Cotton is by far the most popular option for sheets, with many different weaves available. The most popular types of cotton weaves for sheets are usually crisp percale, silky sateen, or soft jersey cotton, which is often blended with poly fibers for a soft and stretchy feel. Flannel sheets are also made from cotton with a napped (fuzzy) finish on one or both sides for an extra cozy feel. Rayon sheets are growing in popularity, and are made with cellulose derived from plants such as eucalyptus or bamboo. Linen sheets are made from flax, and have a lightweight, airy feel that's perfect for hot sleepers. Microfiber sheets are generally made from synthetic fibers such as polyester, or they can often be a blend of polyester and cotton.
