What is a Flat sheet?

Vero Linens luxury flat sheets

The Flat Sheet goes on top of the Fitted Sheet and is tucked between the mattress and the box spring at the foot of the bed.

  • The Flat Sheet is placed on the bed upside-down so that when the bed is made open the decorative finishing of the Sheet (Hemstitching or embroidery) is displayed.

Although in Europe many individuals do not use a Flat Sheet, we recommend using one as it provides a layer of protection for the Duvet Cover or blanket.

  • The Flat Sheet prevents body oil as well as other forms of soil from getting on the Duvet Cover. A
  • lthough Cotton Duvet Covers are easily washed, a Flat Sheet is easier to wash and place on the bed than a Duvet Cover.
  • Using a Flat Sheet reduces the frequency that you would clean a Duvet Cover.
