Give your bedroom a makeover on a budget with these affordable linen sheets

Sweet, sweet dreams.
Aere Home

There is a reason why linen is the homewares essential of the moment.

Particularly in our hot and humid climate down here in Australia, linen sheets are a lifesaver for sweaty sleepers, but year-round they are a stylish alternative to typical cotton sheets.

Considering we spend a third of our lives sleeping, if there is any way to make the bedroom a relaxing oasis then sign us up!

There are so many advantages to choosing linen when it comes to our bedsheets that go beyond just style:

  • Linen is a sustainable material, so for those who are eco-minded, this is a great option to make your bedroom feel a little more green.
  • It is great for any season; yes, it is particularly popular in summer but in winter it acts as an insulator for chilly nights.
  • It’s durable and will last for years to come, which means you can justify spending a little bit more knowing that you’ll get your money’s worth.
  • Part of the appeal of linen is the effortlessly, chic undone look – saving you some time in the morning from the pressure of a perfectly made bed (or so we’re telling ourselves).
  • It’s anti-allergenic, which is a win for those of us with sensitive skin.

Although linen can at times be more expensive than its cheaper-made and less luxurious counterparts, it doesn’t always have to be.
