It is a good idea to purchase a full set including a comforter when buying waterbed sheets. Buying waterbed sheet sets is more economical than buying all of the components separately. Getting a comforter along with the sheets allows for more versatility with the bed and keeps the owner from having to buy a separate blanket for use during the cold months of the year. Also, it is much easier to purchase a full sheet set that includes a matching comforter than it is to find a matching comforter separately. Waterbed sheet sets are available in all major fabrics and for all sizes of waterbed.
The unique styling of waterbed sheets is something that necessitates purchasing them in sets. Instead of buying the fitted sheet separately from the flat sheets, as is often done with conventional sheets, waterbed sheets often come with the fitted and flat sheets connected to each other. With many waterbed sheet sets, the flat sheet is sewn to the center of the foot of the fitted sheet. This makes it easier for people to make the bed, as they do not constantly have to tuck the flat sheet into the foot of the bed. This is an added advantage for waterbeds with wooden frames because they often leave little room for sliding hands and fingers around the mattress to make the bed. Another unique feature of waterbed sheets is that the fitted sheet often has corner flaps that hold the sheet in place and keep it from slipping while people sleep on it.
It is advisable to buy a sheet set that includes a comforter. A matching or complimentary comforter adds style to the sheet set and provides warmth on cold nights. It is easier to buy a comforter with the sheets than it is to find one that matches, especially for sheets with unique colors or patterns that may be difficult to match. Another advantage to buying a waterbed sheet and comforter is that they are usually less expensive when purchased together, as main reason that sheet sets are sold is to provide buyers with a good deal. When purchased all together, sheet sets can save the buyer almost a third of the cost of the all of the components bought separately.
Waterbed sheet sets provide convenience and value to consumers. They feature all of the things that waterbed owners need for their bed in one package, and a waterbed sheet set and comforter provides even more value.
