If you’re looking to turn your bedroom into a sleep sanctuary, new bedding (or a new mattress) is a great place to start. After all, you spend almost a third of your life between the sheets, so investing in linens that meet both your style and comfort needs is a no-brainer.

To get some insights into what makes for good shut-eye, we consulted Rebecca Robbins, the author of "Sleep for Success! Everything You Must Know About Sleep But Are Too Tired to Ask."

"When it comes to bedding, invest in the best sheets you can afford. With regard to fabric, opt for a high-quality option that will stand the test of machine washing. Try a few options and choose whichever is cozy, soothing and relaxing to you," she said. "Make sure you can feel the bedding before you take your sheets out of the package. You want to find something that is soothing to the touch; something that helps you relax so that when you slip between the sheets you are at ease and ready for sleep."

So whether you want your bedroom to feel like a luxury five-star hotel suite or a calming bohemian oasis, TODAY rounded up the top online retailers where you can find the best bedding sets, duvet covers, bedspreads and more. Happy hunting!

1. Amazon

amazon bedding sets

Your favorite online destination for just about everything under the sun also has bedding. Below, TODAY Home gathered some of the best-selling pieces of bedding on Amazon, including 5-piece, bed-in-a-bag sets that come in a range of colors from navy to purple.

Hotel Luxury 3pc Duvet Cover Set, $25, Amazon

TODAY editors, writers and experts take care to recommend items we really like and hope you’ll enjoy! Just so you know, TODAY does have affiliate relationships. So, while every product is independently selected, if you buy something through our links, we may get a small share of the revenue.

This Amazon best-seller comes in 15 different colors from camel to baby blue. One reviewer commented, "We've slept with this for a few months now and I have to say that this is the softest, most lightweight and luxurious feeling duvet cover I have ever had." It does not come with a comforter, so if you're going to buy this best-seller, pair it with this top rated down comforter that's described as 'sleeping on a cloud'.

Zen Bamboo 1800 Series Luxury Bed Sheets, $30, Amazon

Bamboo fabric tends to last at least two times longer than cotton. This set comes in 12 colors and has ties inside so that your comforter will stay in place, instead of bunching.

Utopia Bedding 3 Piece Queen Duvet Cover Set with 2 Pillow Shams, $19, Amazon

One of the (many) things we love about Amazon is that much of their bedding comes in affordable bundles with a duvet with two shams.

Printed Comforter Set with 2 Pillow Shams, $45, Amazon

This playful set comes with a goose down filling and is available in a nautical navy.

HC Collection 1500 Thread Count Egpytian Quality Duvet Cover Set, $25, Amazon

This comes in king sizes and multiple colors including white. You likely won't find a better deal on Egyptian cotton right now.

Uozzi Bedding 3 Piece Duvet Cover Set, $27, Amazon

This fun set is made of anti-allergy, anti-mite fabric and comes in four playful colors and patterns. This bedding would really add some pep to that guest room you don't quite know what to do with.

AmazonBasics 5-Piece Bed-In-a-Bag, $39, Amazon

Is there anything more convenient than a 5-piece bedding set? It comes with sheets, two pillow sleeves, a duvet and a pillow cover. Reviewers rave about how easy this is, especially if you're looking for something for your dorm room or first apartment.

IKEA White and Blue Striped Pattern Duvet Cover and Pillowcases, $44, Amazon

Something else we are loving about Amazon right now? It added IKEA products to its inventory. This duvet set is one of many IKEA styles available to choose from, so you no longer have to trudge all the way to the store to get something Swedish-chic.

2. Walmart

Is there anything Walmart doesn't have? Use the giant retailer as your one-shop-shop for all types of bedding at a variety of prices and styles.

In addition to being insanely soft, these microfiber sheets have a deep pocket specifically for taller mattresses.

3. Wayfair

In addition to quality sheets and other bed linens at discounted prices, you can find a huge selection of daybed sets at the online home goods retailer.

Mellanni 1800 Thread Count 100% Brushed Microfiber Sheet Set, $43 (usually $80), Wayfair

These sheets are luxurious, feel cool against skin and don't wrinkle. What more could you want?

Pine Cone Hill Ink Dots Duvet Cover, $210, Wayfair

Another thing we love about Wayfair? They carry more high end brands than you'd expect. This includes Laura Ashley Home, Kate Spade and Birch Lane. This duvet from Pine Cone Hill is fun and flirty and at $210 it will last a lifetime.

4. Nordstrom

nordstrom bedding

There are just too many reasons obsess to over Nordstrom bedding right now — between the great mix of high-end and affordable brands and the excellent return policy, what's not to love?

Nordstrom at Home Chloe Duvet Cover, $199, Nordstrom

This beautifully textured duvet evokes shabby chic-vibes. Ruffles are in this year and this is an excellent way to incorporate them into your home without going overboard.

Nordstrom at Home 400 Thread Count Organic Cotton Sateen Sheet Set, $89, Nordstrom

Sink into dreamland with a luxe sheet set in smooth, lustrous organic-cotton sateen that includes flat and fitted sheets, along with two pillowcases.

5. Parachute

Parachute
Parachute

As a great alternative to chain store bedding, this chic, California-based home textile company sells premium linens in sateen and percale at accessible prices. If you love Parachute's stuff as much as we do, check out the new baby section and the mattress toppers.

Stitch Stripe Duvet Cover Set, $249, Parachute

Made from 100 percent premium cotton, it's lightweight, breathable and great for warm summer months. The company also has linen, percale and sateen duvets that start at lower prices and come in colors like blush and robin blue.

Percale Sheet Set, $109, Parachute

These percale sheets are "stonewashed for a soft texture and more casual appearance". They're soft, very soft, and they'll feel gloriously worn-in from the first day you use them.

Quilted Baby Sham, $39, Parachute

We'd be doing a disservice if we didn't mention Parachute's baby line. This sham is designed to be the perfect size for feedings and bedtime rituals. It may be pricey for a pillow but it makes a luxurious baby shower present or gift for any new mom.

6. Lord & Taylor

We love Lord & Taylor for the variety of men's, women's and kid's items. However, one little known secret is that Lord & Taylor has luxury bedding at amazing prices.
