Valance Sheet vs Fitted Bed Sheet: What’s the Difference?


Linen can make an enormous difference when it comes to the aesthetic of your bedroom. Not to mention your quality of sleep. Whether you’re shopping for a single or a super king, it’s important to know the difference between a valance sheet vs fitted bed sheets.


What’s a valance sheet?valance-sheet-in-white


A valance – aka a decorative skirt designed to conceal box springs, bed frames and underbed storage areas.  It's one of the easiest ways to dress up your bedroom. Traditional valances are long, narrow and wrap around the base of the bed. A valance sheet elevates the concept to the next level and combines the bottom ‘frill’ with a fitted sheet.

Unlike regular fitted sheets, a valance sheet doesn’t feature an elasticated hem. Instead, it’s sewn into a box shape to ensure a snug fit on the mattress, without compromising the drape of the frill. Not only do valance sheets look smart, but they’re also easy to wash and remake. Whatever your bed size, we have premium quality fitted valance sheet options to match.





What are fitted bed sheets?


Fitted bed sheets not only protect your mattress. They also provide a soft, temperature-regulating base for you to sleep on. Some have elasticated corners to ensure a tight fit while others feature a neat box-style design.fitted-sheet-in-grey
