Twin bedding is the coverings that are used for twin size beds. These types of beds are often used in children’s rooms and guest rooms. Many of the twin bedding options are geared toward juvenile themes. You can find this type of bedding options any place that linens are sold.
Twin beds were very popular for many years as a way to conserve space or as a way for two people to share a single bedroom. In cases where they are used to share one room typically the bedding matches to give the room a look of continuity.
In most twin sets you will find a fitted sheet, a flat sheet, a single pillowcase, a comforter and in some cases a bed ruffle. The fitted sheet is the bottom sheet and it is called fitted because it has pockets that are made up from elastic that fits around the corners of the mattress. The flat sheet goes over the fitted sheet but its corners are “flat” or without pockets. Typically you will find one pillowcase that comes with a twin bedding set because usually only one pillow is used on a twin bed. The ensemble is finished off with the comforter or some type of blanket or cover for the bed. In some cases that set will come with a bed ruffle. A bed ruffle is placed between the mattress and the box spring. It is used to hide the under bed space and is often times quite decorative.
You can find twin bedding in many different styles. The type of room that the bedding is to be used in will drive what style you use. For example if the bedding is going to be used in a little girls room that you might want to consider purchasing some that will reflect the little girls favorite things. In a little girls room it might be very appropriate to have a set that is adorned with bows and other prints that reflect the feminine nature of the room. For a young boys room the opposite might be true, instead of frilly feminine prints you would probably opt for a more masculine look.
There are plenty of adult themes to choose from as well. In guest rooms the bedding set might be of a floral nature or a solid color. Something that is a bit more sophisticated. Regardless what the style is that you are after you will easily be able to find a twin bedding set that reflects your style.
