You may have seen a fitted mattress on one of your friends or family members who had recently moved into a new house and now want to know “Can you buy just a fitted sheet?” I recently did a quick search on Google for this question and was quite surprised to find several answers. So what is the “fitted” mattress referred to? The plain term is “fitted sheet”. Basically this means that the bed is fully assembled to your specifications, this includes the pillows, the headboard, and the footboard.
There are many reasons why someone would wish to buy a fitted mattress rather than buying one according to the manufacturers specifications. Perhaps the room is too small and the room lacks space for a king size bed, or perhaps the bed will not fit through the door. There are also those who wish to change the look of their room by changing the look of the bed, maybe they have a very modern bedroom and wish to reflect this. Whatever the reason for wanting to change the look of the bed this can easily be done by fitting a fitted mattress.
So, can you buy just a fitted sheet for a bed? Yes, in most cases you can. It is not necessary to order a fitted sheet from the manufacturer as you can often buy them as a separate item from the bed seller. The bed seller will normally allow you to take the bed wherever you want to as long as it is fitted to their standards.
Some manufacturers of beds such as Hunter Cotton & Loomis produce fitted sheets as an add on service when you buy your bed. They can be ordered online or at the main warehouse store. In these cases the sheets are supplied as a set and are normally quite inexpensive. It is always advisable to check the quality before purchasing the fitted bed sheet from the main dealer as many counterfeit items do circulate the market. Buying from a second hand dealer is also possible but once again these are likely to be quite expensive.
Where can you buy a fitted sheet for a bed? If you do choose to go down the second hand route for your bed sheets then it is advisable that you buy the same brand and type that the original bed was fitted with. This way if there are any problems you will know exactly where to find replacement material. You can even choose to buy more than one type of sheet to give yourself extra variety.
You can buy bed sheets for a fitted bed in a range of weights and styles. The thickness can vary considerably from those used for standard crib bedding to those used for adult beds. There are even fitted bedding sets available with different textures, some quite heavy or plush others. They can be used for either fitted or un-fitted sleeping and as they come in such a wide range of weights they can also be adapted to be used for either type of bed.
Why would you need to buy a fitted sheet for a bed? A fitted sheet provides a level of comfort that can only be matched by other fabrics. When sleeping on one of these sheets it is almost impossible to wake up to a real sore or chafed bottom. The comfort level can also improve as soon as you put the coverlet on so the covers stay on and don’t slide down your legs. It is all down to the level of comfort that can be achieved with fitted sheets and they can be adjusted to fit your requirements at any given time.
When can you buy a fitted sheet for a bed? The answer is anytime as long as it suits your requirements, you are happy with the level of comfort that is provided and you are buying from a reputable supplier who can offer you good value for money. So when looking for your next fitted bed sheet or mattress cover think carefully before you buy.
