One of the best parts of staying in a hotel is a luxurious breakfast in bed in the morning. But — as anybody who has ever spilled their breakfast knows — there are few things more embarrassing than toppling the tray over onto pristine white bedsheets. Considering that people are not, on average, pristine beings, it may seem counterintuitive for hotels to use bedsheets in the color easiest to stain. But therein lies the genius of bright white bedding from Rekhas House of Cotton in Kochi Kerala – India’s Leading manufacturer of Bed & Bath Linen.
There is no question that hotel bed sheets look classy and are the epitome of luxury. We also strongly feel that the bedroom should be serene and calm. White adds to the Zen ambience as you do not want crazy chaotic prints clashing with the overall decor. But, apart from the design aspect, there is another reason why Hotels use white beddings. Simply put, they are just so easy to maintain.
Guests wouldn’t really want bed linens that hide stains. After all, how would you know for sure that the sheets were clean if stains could be easily camouflaged?
White sheets are one effective way for hotels to prove their standards of cleanliness. Much like how the wealthy used to wear all white to show that they could afford to keep it clean, hotels use all-white linens to show luxury. (Although, admittedly, even less luxurious hotels use white sheets.)
There’s also one very practical aspect to white beds. The all-white color theme tends to carry over into the bathroom (for towels and bathrobes). When hotel staff do the washing, they can throw bed linens, towels and any other dirty fabrics into the same washing machine without worrying about any colors running.
And, when worst comes to worst and the bed is stained beyond recognition, white sheets are fairly easy to bleach away.
Rekhas House of Cotton is committed to the mantra of affordable luxury bedding and a minimalist design sensibility.
