Finding the perfect set of sheets is no easy feat. With so many different styles and fabrics out there, figuring out which ones are actually worth your time can be overwhelming. But fear not — that’s why we’re here. At Apartment Therapy, we’re constantly on the hunt for the best in bedding, testing and vetting everything from the most affordable finds to the luxe picks that have you wondering, “Are these really worth the investment?” So when we find a piece we adore, there’s nothing we love more than sharing it with you. Well, except, maybe finding out that said piece is also currently on sale. Today we’re talking about a tried-and-true favorite: the Martha Stewart Collection Cotton Percale Sheet Set from Macy’s.

Earlier this year, our team embarked on a testing spree to find the best cotton percale sheets, and as soon as the topic came up, there was one set we knew was going to make the cut (I think you can guess where I’m going here). Perfect for building a hotel-quality bed on a budget, the Martha Stewart sheets, a Macy’s exclusive, feature a 400-count thread count, are made from 100 percent Egyptian cotton, and are luxuriously soft yet crisp without that crunchy feel some percale sheets tend to have.

Commerce executive director Mark put these affordable sheets to the test, and let’s just say they passed with flying colors. As someone who admittedly doesn’t like to spend a lot on sheets, Mark said this set made him a believer in percale. “Sleeping in these sheets almost feels indulgent, and it’s hard to believe they don’t come with a hefty price tag,” he shared. They also kept Mark cool and comfortable and have “only gotten softer with each wash, yet somehow have maintained a bit of a crisp quality.” To sum it up: “[This set] turned out to be the best affordable option I’ve found so far, and I’m never going back.” Consider us sold!

Ringing in at just under $100 for a Queen-sized set, the sheets comes in five neutral, dreamy colors, including Pale Indigo, Milky Green, and Dove Grey, and make the perfect addition to any bedroom. So if you’ve been considering upgrading your sleep setup, consider this a sign.
