A Buyer's Guide to Luxury Sateen Sheets

  • by Mary Babinski
  • 5 min read

The Warmth, Romance, and Luxury of Sateen Sheets

At Fine Linen and Bath, the first step in helping our clients select a luxury sheet set is determining whether they prefer the crisp, airy feel of percale or the softer, heavier, drape of sateen fabric. Percale sheets are cool and breathable, which makes them ideal for the classic "summer bed," while the smooth warmth of sateen weave sheets makes them a bit better suited to cooler seasons and climates. Learn more about the differences between percale weave and sateen weave sheets here.

Ultimately, the choice between percale and sateen comes down to your personal preference and bedroom décor. Sateen bed sheets have unique qualities that make them perfect for any bedroom that heavily emphasizes luxury, romance, and comfort:

  • Lustrous to the look and touch
  • A wide range of color options, including rich, intense hues
  • A dramatic drape
  • Softness and warmth
  • A silky feel

At Fine Linen and Bath, we carry a wide variety of beautiful sateen sheets in a range of styles and price points. Our design team has put together this helpful buyer's guide to our favorite luxury sateen sheets (including one set crafted from sustainable wood bark!) for your consideration.

SDH Legna Classic Bedding

SDH Legna Classic Bedding is a special addition to this category, as these are the only sheets on our list NOT made from cotton.

Why we love SDH Legna Classic Bedding

This fabric is not only luxurious, but absolutely sustainable. We appreciate that the true and lasting beauty of these sheets is absolutely gentle on the Earth. It's also OEKO-TEX® certified as safe and environmentally friendly.
