The reason why almost every hotel uses white bed sheets

One expert has answered it!

Whenever you've been on your travels and staying at a hotel, you may notice that while most hotels differ in their interiors and themes, pretty much all hotels have the same white bed sheets. 

One expert has weighed in on the reason why, and then to be fair, it's pretty much what most have assumed.

Emma Hooton, in-house interior stylist at Tielle Love Luxury told Red that the reason why all hotels have similar white sheets. 

It is because white sheets don't date.

"Coloured linen not only fades over time, but easily dates and somehow never looks quite as timeless or inviting as fresh white."

When you think about it, hotel sheets are probably washed more than any other sheets in the world, so the colour would be lost quite quickly.

Emma further explained that white looks best against any backdrop so it doesn't matter what colour the room is, the sheets will always look good.

"White always forms the perfect backdrop to any other hues or textures in the bedroom. Start with a blank, neutral canvas and work up with a statement headboard and fun patterns or colour popping cushions for a bed you want to dive into."
