Buying luxury bedding without having any idea what is in luxury bedding sets can cost you a lot of money. It does not help that those who make luxury bedding, like everyone else, know exactly what they are talking about when they throw these terms on a label. So let's get everyone on the same page. Here is a quick overview of the various complicated terms that you are likely to find and are confused when buying for the first time.

Luxury sheets explained

All bedding sets come with some sort of sheets. Luxury bedding sets are certainly not the exception, and in general there comes at least a good sheet. In addition, it will largely depend on what the rest of the set consists of. Some have luxurious sheets, while others include a duvet that replaces the duvet and sheets both in most sets. Be sure not to assume anything about luxury bedding sets that you might be considering. Having no sheets, but a duvet instead, is quite normal, but it is a waste of money to have neither sheets nor duvets, but only a duvet.

The duvet

The people who have them will talk about the duvet, a very common luxurious bed linen, as if everyone has one. Since this is not the case, it should be mentioned that the duvet basically replaces the duvet and sheets. Because of this, do not pay too much attention to how many pieces come in a particular set. The content itself is far more important than if there are seven, eight or five pieces. Also note that sets that come with duvets are often flatter and lighter than the cheaper ones with duvets, as the duvet itself replaces both, and the down it is made of is quite thin but effective. Of course, other accessories will also affect the overall package.

Cushion cover

Luxury bedding sets vary a lot when it comes to pillowcases. Often you will see pillowcases called shams or even pillowcases. They are all the same things. Most luxury and normal bedding sets generally have as many normal pillowcases as it fits the size of the bed that the luxury bedding is to cover. In addition, they often have a fairly arbitrary number of coatings for other random pillows, such as throw pillows and neck pillows. If you can match the contents to your actual pillows, then that's fine, but do not rely on it.

Random extras

Unlike most regular bedding sets, luxury bedding sets typically come with a matching bed skirt. An exception is that sets of bedding that have duvets sometimes do not include one. Since duvets are meant to have a cover, those who make the best bedding figure that you are buying a matching bed skirt and duvet cover. There is also the rare bedding set that includes both duvet covers and skirt. This is becoming more and more common with discounts on luxury bedding sets. These more expensive sets are built on the assumption that you are buying their luxurious bedding and someone else's skirt and duvet cover to match the decor of the room.
