Trying to decide what color to get your new sheet set in can be difficult. There are so many great color choices and it is hard to pick just one! Follow these following considerations on how to choose the right color for your new affordable sheets from The Bed Sheet Club
Consider Your Style
What color do you gravitate to first? If you aren’t quite sure, look at your wardrobe for the color that you normally purchase and wear. If your closet is filled with neutrals like tan, grey, and black then you may want to choose a bed sheet color that will compliment what you already love.
If your closet is bright and cheery with lots of yellows, reds, and pinks then a brighter sheet color may be for you. Don’t try to make yourself purchase a color that you don’t instantly love as you will be reminded of it whenever you get into bed.
Consider Your Theme
If your bedroom currently doesn’t have a theme then you can easily choose any color available. However, if your room is already color coordinated with hues of a few different colors it is best to choose a color that will compliment what is already in the room.
You don’t necessarily need to match the color of your room but instead choose something that will not automatically clash. If your room is very colorful with reds, purples, or yellows than consider purchasing a neutral sheet color like white or tan to compliment the theme.
If your bedroom is already neutral with blues, whites, tans, or grays, you can choose a brighter sheet set to offset the quieter colors in your room. For example, a bedroom with grey walls and black accents would easily be complimented with yellow sheets to brighten up the space.
Consider the Color Wheel
There are two different families of colors: warm and cool. Warm colors are the brighter colors like red, yellow, and green. Cooler colors are blue, white, tan, and grey.
If you already have a headboard that is a certain color consider looking at a color wheel to see the color that would directly compliment it.
Simply find the color that already exists in your bedroom and draw a line through the color wheel to the other side.
This will be the color that will best compliment that particular shade.

Consider Color Specifics
Some of our quality sheet colors have special considerations that need attention depending on their hue. If you choose a darker color like black or navy blue, but if you tend to drool or sweat a lot while sleeping, the stains will easily show up on your pillowcase.
Most children’s bedrooms should stay away from darker sheet colors for this reason. Although our soft sheets are stain resistant, white would be another sheet color that would have a tendency to show dirt marks or color bleeding from new pajamas.
Think about the type of person who will be sleeping in the bed to choose the best color for their sleeping habits.
Consider Your Goal
Sleep is a time when the day winds down and your body needs ultimate rest. Choosing a soothing color, like blue or grey, can help stimulate your brain that it is time to settle down for the night.
Both of these hues are proven to calm the brain and encourage your body to slow down. If your bedroom is your oasis from a busy world, choosing a color like blue can subconsciously do wonders in being that first hint to your brain that bedtime is near.
