Getting in to a freshly made bed with fresh sheets and fluffy pillows is one of life’s little pleasures. That’s why choosing the right duvet is important for the all essential shut eye time we get at night. We’re here to help you get it just right so your nights can be restful, so you can make the most out of your days. No one likes shivering through cold winter nights or sweating through the summer so we’re here to help you find the perfect duvet to keep you comfortable no matter the weather or season. Our duvet and pillow buying guide is packed with tips and advice to help you make the perfect choice.
Do you ever find yourself sweating during summer nights and shivering through winter? It may mean you need to invest in 2 separate duvets for each season and pay more attention to the tog rating of your duvet. The tog rating is simply how well the duvet can retain heat. The thicker the duvet feels, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s warmer but instead, the higher the tog rating the more thermally efficient the duvet will be. This is especially handy for when the seasons change and nights become colder in the winter or warmer in the summer. So, choosing the right tog rating is essential to having a comfortable night’s sleep. On average a tog rating of 2.5 to 7 is perfect for warm summer nights and 10.5 to 13.5 is enough to keep you snug through autumn and winter.
Whether you’re sleeping in a single bed, spreading out on a double or indulging yourself with a super king bed, we have all the popular duvet sizes to fit your bed and sleeping habits. Speaking of habits, if you share your bed with a restless sleeper or duvet hogger, you might want to go one size up from your bed size to make sure all angles are covered, and everyone gets some duvet. Our super soft duvet covers are extra snuggly, so much so that you might want to take your duvet everywhere you go.
From synthetic microfibers to natural feather and down filling, we offer a range of filling options to suit your needs. If you like the feel of natural duvets and after quality that will last your years and years, then our feather and down duvets are the right choice for you. Feather duvets are snuggly and soft and natural fibres are very good at keeping you as cool in the summer as they will at keeping you warm in the winter. Grab some feather pillows to complete the set. If you are sensitive to natural fibres or suffer with allergies, our synthetic hollowfibre polyester filled duvets make for a light and airy feel that is breathable and easy to care for. The best thing is, these types of duvets are hypoallergenic too.
It is important that you wash your duvet at least 3 times a year to avoid dust mites and keep up the quality and functionality of your duvet. Make sure to air your bedding for a couple of hours each time you change the sheets to ensure everything stays clean and fresh for longer. Please read the care label for instructions on how to care for your duvet.
Once you have your seasonal duvets and duvet covers, our matching pillowcases come in the classic oxford and housewife shapes to make your bed look great. For an extra deep sleep, invest in a mattress topper. It will have you feeling like you’re sleeping on a cloud and you won’t want to get up. Whether it’s the depths of winter and you need to layer up, or you want to replace your duvet in the sweltering summer, then our blankets are for you. Our range of blankets will add texture and colour to your bedroom. Changing the bed linen is a job that takes time but keep it quick and easy with fitted bed sheets, meaning you don’t have to carefully fold all the corners – just throw it on and you’re good to go!
Lastly, we think it’s time you treated yourself to a king size bed frame. Whether you share or not, get rid of the small double bed and upgrade to a king size or even a super king bed.
