Should I choose light or dark bed sheets?

I’m in the market for some new bed sheets, but I’m having a hard time choosing a color. The bed is a big part of the bedroom color palette, especially if you have a small bedroom like me, so choosing the color of the sheets is a huge design decision that impacts the rest of the space. I’m torn between going for the bright, fresh white look of the hotel to brighten up the north-facing room, but I’m also considering a darker, more dramatic style that would make the space feel cozy.

To get an idea of ​​the best bedding sets for the bedroom, I spoke to sleep experts who know a thing or two about how color affects the mood and atmosphere in the bedroom. “There is no mistake or bad choice when it comes to bed sheets, but there is a conscious choice,” says Pedro Haruf of Brazilian interior design firm Estúdio Pedro Haruf. With that in mind, here are the five factors that will help you make the best choice for your room.

1. Think seasonally

First, think about the seasons and choose your bedroom bedding colors accordingly. The amount of natural light your bedroom gets will help you decide whether you want to go light or dark with your sheets. Keep in mind that you are more likely to feel blue in the winter months than in the summer season. If you have a south-facing room, you will likely get more light throughout the day compared to a north-facing room which will feel cold and dark.
