Overall Brooklinen Ratings: Classic Percale Sheets and Luxe Sateen Sheets

We review based on several factors in order to determine if a product is one that we would recommend because it’s a great fit. Here’s how we rate Brooklinen’s Classic Percale Sheets and Luxe Sateen Sheets:

Ratings Breakdown


Although not necessarily cheap, Brooklinen sheets are made for an audience that enjoys a quality product that won’t break the bank. We took a close look to assess any quality concerns and found none: the fabric weave is excellent, the stitching and corners are tight, and there were no loose threads on both sheet sets. They also come with an OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certification.


In terms of performance and quality, both sets of sheets do exactly what they set out to do. They are soft, well built, and use quality materials. Even so, they aren’t inexpensive, but Brooklinen appears to know their target audience well, as they have a fairly long line of products.


Both sets of Brooklinen sheets lived up to their name, as they were soft upon unboxing, breathe well, and look great. Both sets tick all of the boxes for a great set and come in a variety of colors and styles. The sheets are made to last and to not wear and tear or crumble after a few washes.


Brooklinen is a brand that does everything that’s expected of an online sheet and home goods brand to do. They offer a one year warranty, make good products, and appear to support their products well. Quality sheets aren’t usually an item that a brand can take to the next level, but there are no significant blemishes on Brooklinen’s record.

Who is Brooklinen?

Brooklinen was founded by husband and wife Rich and Vicki Fulop, after a trip to Vegas left them speechless. They laid in the luxury sheets, fascinated by the softness and quality they possessed. Their jaws dropped when they saw they were priced at $800.

They wondered if they could purchase them at a lower price straight from the manufacturer, but hit a strange dead end. Rich dove deep into the abyss of Reddit, and stumbled upon a community that was looking for the same thing: luxurious, affordable sheets.

Brooklinen Founders

While Vicki officially quit law school and Rich was in business school, they developed Brooklinen, modeled after the idea that quality sheets need not cost an arm and a leg. They researched from the ground up, building their business while being rejected by investor after investor. Feeling they were out of options, they began a Kickstarter campaign with a goal of $50,000.

Within thirty days, they had far surpassed their goal at $237,000. 

Brooklinen began as one sheet set, but once they gained traction and boomed with rave reviews, they were able to expand to robes, towels, pillows, comforters, and loungewear. The small linen brand from Brooklyn is now synonymous with affordable luxury sheets; what sounds like an oxymoron but has been made a reality by the power couple.

Brooklinen Stores Worldwide Map

Outside of their main goal of creating awesome and quality products, Brooklinen aims to manufacture responsibly and tries their best to price their products at reasonable prices. After all, the multimillion dollar company launched from Kickstarter, so it’s only appropriate they remain loyal to the people who initially supported them.


  • Soft right out of the box
  • High quality and durable
  • Reasonable thread count that reflects quality and softness, without being a marketing gimmick
  • Excellent woven quality. No discernible imperfections, loose threads, etc.
  • Long and short labels on the fitted sheet so you know what side goes where
  • 100% cotton


  • Appears to be designed for multiple mattress thickness, so a thinner mattress will have more extra fabric that needs to be tucked in
  • Wrinkles out of the wash, so will need to be ironed if you want a pristine look

Brooklinen Sheets  Review -  Classic Percale and Luxe Sateen

Overall, both the Classic Percale Sheets and Luxe Sateen Sheets are great. They are soft, durable, good quality, and scored nearly the same in terms of value, performance, and quality. 

The Classic Percale Sheets are one of Brooklinen’s best sellers, and for good reason. The long staple cotton is smooth and cool, and allows for a great night’s sleep.

Brooklinen Grey Sheets

It’s the brand’s baby, being the first product they created and tested that proved it’s possible to have luxury sheets without the big price tag. Originally designed to give the feel of staying at a hotel, the nearly 14,000 reviews on their website alone speak volumes to how consumers feel about the product.

In the same vein, the Luxe Sateen Sheets are also highly rated with a near-cult following with over 18,000 reviews. They are Brooklinen’s most popular product, featuring their buttery soft weave and a slightly luminous finish.

Reviewing Brooklinen Sheet Performance

Although there’s no doubt they are a great set, there is not much of a difference between the two. The difference in thread count is almost double, but if the average consumer is told to point out the more luxurious set they may not be able to.

That doesn’t take away from their quality though, but it’s an important note to take for a consumer that isn’t interested in spending more money on their sheets. 

There are several factors that led to our positive experience with the sheet sets, including:

  • The softness straight from the box
  • The quality of the sheets
  • The labels indicating the short and long sides of the sheets
  • The variety in styles

It’s great that Brooklinen has built a brand that creates great sheets without having to inflate their products with artificially high thread counts. Thread count can be a factor in purchasing sheets, but for Brooklinen the proof is in the feel of the sheets themselves, not the thread count. The fact that Brooklinen doesn’t try to deceive their customers with inflated thread count numbers speaks of their character. 

Brooklinen Sheets Performance - Classic Percale and Luxe Sateen

Both sets are durable, made well, and aren’t priced like luxury sheets. When it comes to high quality cotton sheet sets, each set is likely to feel similar to the next. We actually tested these sheets at the same time as Boll & Branch, another luxury sheet brand but with a higher price point. Brooklinen shared numerous similarities to the higher-end brand but with a lower price.

Washing Brooklinen Test

The sheets were also tested for bleeding colors, passing with flying colors. A wet paper towel was placed on a countertop and pressed with a rolling pin into the pillowcase. In our tests there was zero color bleed. This gives us a great level of confidence with respect to build quality, washing the sheets, and overall longevity.

Are Brooklinen Sheets Good Quality?

Both the Classic Percale Sheets and Luxe Sateen Sheets passed our tests for weave, fabric quality, bleeding colors, and more. Considering Brooklinen’s thread counts, they are still soft sheets that perform well.

Fitted Sheet Brooklinen

The long and short labels on the fitted sheets were an unexpected but nice touch. Brooklinen’s sheets did everything as expected from a brand that focuses on bedsheets. They offer a one year warranty and make a wide variety of products that we enjoyed.

Are Brooklinen Sheets Worth It?

Brooklinen sheets are designed with the concept that luxury doesn’t necessarily have to be inaccessible. There’s a variety of colors and styles for each product, and their minimalistic approach saves them money from a manufacturing perspective which allows them to keep their prices realistic.

Side Tag Brooklinen

Even after washes and use, the sheets held up well and the colors remained. If you are looking for a sheet set that’s crisp, soft, and affordable without sacrificing quality, then Brooklinen sheets are a great option. And should you decide to venture out of bedding, they offer several home goods products to spruce up your home.

Brooklinen Products We Didn’t Review

Brooklinen has expanded from offering just one set of sheets to having several categories of home goods. It’s quite easy to get lost on their website since it’s beautifully designed and has a quiz, and three styles of rooms to shop from, depending on if you prefer a relaxed industrial, modern glam, or earthy minimalist look. 

Their website serves as some great inspiration for your bedroom and home, but some of the items are a bit overpriced and can be found elsewhere. Others, like the throw blankets made out of cashmere or wool, are more reasonably priced.

According to their website, their categories are as follows and include several subcategories:

How Do You Care for Brooklinen Sheets?

For sheets on the luxurious end of the spectrum, Brooklinen sheets are fairly easy to care for. Their website has a small section with each product description that briefly details how to care for Brooklinen sheets. All you need to do is wash them with like colors, tumble dry low, and iron if needed with the iron set to low as to not damage the material.

Like most sheet sets, they do need to be washed prior to first use. After that the care process is simple. Other items like the Lightweight Summer Quilt require a different level of care, such as line drying and washing on a cool or warm cycle.

Frequently Asked Questions

Brooklinen Luxury Sheets

Brooklinen Sheets Summary

There’s no doubt that Brooklinen deserves their success. Born out of a somewhat innocent question of, “Why can’t luxury sheets be made at an affordable price?”, Brooklinen has sought out and achieved their goal of creating high-quality, accessible products that are affordable and leave consumers coming back for more.

This has allowed the brand to branch out into other home good products, which will likely expand even more.

The brand knows their target audience well and has created a community that supports them back with their overwhelming and positive reviews. At this point, Brooklinen doesn’t need to advertise all over their hometown of New York–their consumers speak for them.
