Dream about satin sheets, but actually buy sturdy sheets that fit the bed, launder well and can stand up to some wear. Opt for high thread count and natural fiber varieties, but be a little skeptical. Sheet manufacturers who claim an impossible thread count density are probably playing with the numbers. Oh, and it's a good idea to sign up for extra pillowcases. We could also caution you about staying with colors that you can mix and match later, but if there was ever a time to walk on the wild side with the color of your sheets, this is it.
