How To Choose The Right Duvet For You: Duvet Buying Guide

How To Choose The Right Duvet For You: Duvet Buying Guide

"How do I choose the right duvet for me?" It's a question we hear all the time at The Fine Bedding Company. We understand that selecting the ideal duvet can be quite a conundrum. With our extensive range of duvet sizes and options, including Smart Temperature, Breathe, Spundown, and Coverless, the choices can be overwhelming. After all, investing in the right duvet is essential, considering we spend a third of our lives cosying up in bed.

In this guide, we'll help you put those decision-making dilemmas to rest, ensuring you make an informed and confident choice. So, let's dive in and discover the perfect duvet that suits you best.

Looking For Duvet Tog Information? 

When it comes to choosing the right duvet Tog, consider the season and your comfort needs. For summertime, opt for a lower Tog, typically around 4.5. As spring and autumn bring varying temperatures, a slightly higher Tog of about 10.5 is ideal. For the chilly winter months, go even higher with a 13.5 Tog duvet.

If you're seeking more information on duvet togs, we've prepared a dedicated Duvet Tog Guide just for you. In it, we demystify what the tog rating means and guide you on selecting the best rating for each season.

Need To Know How To Wash Your Duvet?

If you're wondering about the best way to wash your duvet, we've got you covered with a separate Easy Cleaning Guide. Inside, we provide comprehensive instructions on properly and safely washing duvets of different kinds.

Which Duvet Filling Is Right For Me? 

Once you've settled on the perfect Tog rating, the next decision on your duvet-buying journey is selecting the right filling. Fibre-filled or natural? Your choice can greatly impact your comfort, and since we all have unique preferences, it's essential to ask, "Which filling is best for me?" The Fine Bedding Company has a wide range of materials and technologies in its duvets to appeal to everyone, but they generally fall into two categories: synthetic materials and natural naturals. 

Benefits Of Synthetic Fibre-filled Duvets

  • Anti-allergy properties ideal for allergy sufferers.
  • Easy to wash at home.
  • Ideal for those who prefer lighter duvets.
  • Offers technical benefits such as added breathability.

At The Fine Bedding Company, we take immense pride in our innovative products, constantly pushing the boundaries to introduce new technologies. Our duvets are no exception. The majority of our synthetic duvets feature our signature filling: Smartfil®. This ultra-lightweight filling provides the same level of warmth as its heavier counterparts.

Our duvets consist of more Smartfil® layers compared to cheaper hollow-fibre alternatives. This design traps more air, providing superior warmth, a luxurious "wrapped up" feeling, and a graceful drape to your bedding. Even after multiple washes, our duvet fibres maintain their silky softness and never deteriorate.

Did You Know? 

If regulating your body temperature at night is a challenge, you're not alone. In a recent survey, nearly two-thirds of our customers emphasised temperature management when selecting a duvet. For those who value temperature control, our Breathe duvet, containing Modal in its filling, is the ideal choice. Modal, derived from wood pulp sourced from self-sustaining forests, is a cellulosic fibre like cotton. These fibres excel at absorbing and dispersing body heat, keeping you cool at night for a restful sleep.

Benefits Of Natural Duvets

  • Highly breathable.
  • Long life span.
  • Ideal for those who prefer a heavier duvet.

Synthetic Or Natural Duvet Filling? 

While many may assume that fibre-filled duvets outperform their natural counterparts, we at The Fine Bedding Company believe that natural fillings deserve more credit. Duvets with natural fillings are generally more breathable, making them suitable for year-round use. Additionally, they tend to outlast fibre-filled duvets due to the resilience of feathers and down, particularly when it comes to washing. Natural duvets tend to be heavier, making them an excellent choice if you prefer some weight in your duvet.


Discover Our Natural Duvets

By considering your preferences and focusing on your comfort needs, you can confidently select the perfect duvet filling that suits you best. At The Fine Bedding Company, we're not just about offering quality products; we're dedicated to your comfort and the environment.

Find The Right Duvet Tog For You: Duvet Tog Guide

Find The Right Duvet Tog For You: Duvet Tog Guide

When you're in the market for a new duvet, understanding your specific needs is crucial. Finding the perfect duvet can be a daunting task, but fear not, as we're here to provide you with a comprehensive duvet tog guide to help you make the right choice.


Deciphering The Tog Rating: What Does Tog Mean?

Contrary to common belief, the Tog rating isn't an indicator of a duvet's thickness or quality. Rather, it's a measure used to gauge the thermal insulation capacity of a material. In simpler terms, it tells you how warm a duvet is. The rule of thumb is straightforward: the higher the Tog rating, the warmer the duvet. However, to truly grasp which duvet suits your needs, let's delve deeper. At Fine Bedding Company, our duvets range from 4.5 Tog to 13.5 Tog.


4.5 Tog Duvet: Ideal For Summer 

Summer nights call for a lighter duvet since higher temperatures mean less insulation is required. The perfect choice for this season is the 4.5 Tog duvet. A handy way to remember this is: as temperatures rise, go for a lower Tog rating. Most of our duvets come in 4.5 Tog options, but our Breathe Duvet stands out for summer use. It incorporates Modal, a natural fibre derived from wood pulp, which helps regulate temperature by wicking away moisture, keeping you cool on hot summer nights. However, if you tend to get chilly, even in summer, consider a 7 Tog duvet for added warmth.

Duvet Tog


Selecting The Right Tog Rating For Spring And Autumn: 7 or 10.5 Tog

Spring and autumn bring cooler temperatures, but it's not quite freezing yet. During these transitional seasons, a duvet with a Tog rating of either 7 or 10.5 is your best bet, depending on your susceptibility to cold. If you tend to run warm, a 7 Tog duvet should suffice.

Our Spundown Duvet, available in 7 Tog, is both lightweight and plush, retaining its shape after each wash.

Alternatively, our Boutique Silk Duvet, with a 10.5 Tog rating, offers luxurious comfort and is easy to clean, making it ideal for those who tend to sweat on warmer nights.


13.5 Tog Duvet: Embrace The Winter Chill

As winter approaches and the temperature drops, it's time to opt for a higher Tog rating. A 13.5 Tog duvet will keep you cozy during the coldest months. However, if you're not particularly sensitive to the cold, a 10.5 Tog duvet can also provide ample warmth. The choice ultimately depends on your personal preference. There's nothing quite like snuggling under a warm duvet after a chilly day.


The 4 Seasons Duvet

For those seeking a versatile option that can be used year-round, the 4 seasons duvet is the way to go. This duvet consists of a 9 Tog and a 4.5 Tog duvet, which can be combined to create a toasty 13.5 Tog duvet for winter. Purchasing the entire set at once can save you money on your duvet purchase. Our Spundown Duvet is available in the 4 seasons warmth variant. If nighttime sweating is a concern, the Breathe Duvet is an innovative choice as it effectively regulates temperature.

Make Your Choice

Now that you're well-versed in the world of Tog ratings, selecting the right duvet for yourself should be a breeze. If you still have doubts or need expert advice, don't hesitate to reach out to us. We're always delighted to assist you in finding the perfect duvet to ensure a comfortable night's sleep.

Baby sleeping: Improve your child's sleep for preschool

Improve Your Child's Sleep: Preparing For Preschool

Jenna Wilson from Little Dreams Consulting: Improve your child's sleep for preschool

 Jenna Wilson, award-winning sleep consultant and founder of Little Dreams Consulting. 


Starting school, or even preschool, is such a huge milestone in your little one’s life – and yours too! There is lots of learning and developing to be done so we want to ensure they are as pre/school sleep ready as they can be!


Why is sleep so important?

It is only during the deep phase of sleep that the growth hormone is secreted, together with the hormone that tells your little one whether they are full or hungry. On top of this our immune system needs sleep in order to produce proteins to fight infection; vitally important when your little one goes to school and picks up all those new bugs that they have not yet become exposed to.

Sleep is vital for your child’s development too. If your little one does not sleep well, the brain cannot ‘press save’ on what was learned that day, which, as you can imagine, is absolutely vital!


How can you help your little one get more sleep?

There are two aspects we can look at to improve your child's sleep for preschool.


Bedroom Environment

Let’s start with the basics, a really important part of sleeping for your child, is ensuring that they have a calm and comfortable environment to sleep in. We want to ensure that their bedroom is where sleep can come easily and naturally.

The right duvet helps. Try the Night Lark Junior Coverless Duvet & Pillowcase Set: made from super-soft Smartfil fibres and featuring four delightful prints, it is also easy-washable and quick drying. 


1. Keep It Simple

One of the biggest mistakes parents make when it comes to their children’s bedroom is that they make it too exciting, whereas, ideally their room will be calm and, well, pretty boring. We want to ensure that your little one knows their room is for sleep and nothing else so ensure any toys are tidied away at the end of the day and anything like too many stuffed animals and huge murals on the wall are out of sight.


2. Keep It dark

Ideally your little one’s room would be pitch black but, lots of little ones will develop a fear of the dark as they become pre schoolers.

One of the biggest reasons for early morning wakings is because of light coming in from outside so a blackout blind (something like a ‘Groblind’ or you could even Sellotape black card over your child’s windows) can work well. Older children may even like an eye mask (I know all of my 3 do).

Try the Night Owl Junior Chidlren's Silk Eye Mask made from pure mulberry silk.

how to help your toddler get enough sleep for preschool 

If your little one is scared of the dark, try to ensure their night light is not too bright but allow it to stay on all night so that the way in which they fall asleep is the same when they come to the edge of sleep each time in the night.


3. Keep It Cool

The recommended temperature for a child’s room is between 16 to 20° and, did you know that only a 0.5% change in temperature can really impact sleep.

‘My 6 year old loves the feel of the bedding and has remained cool all summer so I know this works, plus from a very practical point of view it is super easy to wash (and I get bonus points for it’s sustainability credentials)!’

Be aware that 4am is generally when our bodies (and our houses) are the coolest so bear that in mind because we don’t want your little one waking because they are a little cool.


Bedtime Routine

Let's move on to their bedtime routine. 


1. The Basics 

First, a bedtime routine can be really helpful for children. Ideally there will be some ‘getting the wriggles out’ play time, after dinner, followed by some quiet and relaxing time before bed. It can also include some massage or touch to calm overtired and wired nervous systems! Relax Kids have a great website with lots of resources to help, or watch some cosmic kids yoga and do it together! Try to ensure you also have some 1-1 time with you to reconnect too.


2. Include a bath

A bath will also help your little one wind down and relax, together with the benefits of their body temperature dropping and this will help them sleep too.

3. Avoid the sugar

Avoid sugary foods or drinks before bedtime (including surprising things like hot chocolate or too much fruit). Instead, you could try a banana, some natural yoghurt or a bowl of (low sugar) cereal if your little one wants a snack before bed.


Book A Free 15 Minute Chat

If your little one is having trouble sleeping, we work with children up to the age of 10 so book a free 15 minute chat with one of us to discuss what’s happening and how we can help.

How To Wash A Duvet: Easy Cleaning Guide

We often neglect duvets when it comes to washing bedding. While we regularly wash bed linens, we tend to forget to wash duvets or see it as a daunting task, especially during the annual spring clean. Who wants to carry a bulky duvet to the washing machine or laundrette?

However, washing duvets is easier than you might think, especially with the new highly washable duvets available on the market. Here is The Fine Bedding Company’s easy guide on how to wash a duvet.

We’ll cover:

  1. Can I wash a duvet?
  2. How to clean a duvet
  3. How to dry a duvet


Can I Wash My Duvet?

how to wash a duvet - woman putting duvet in washing machine

Yes, you can and should wash your duvet. While your pyjamas and bed sheets are the first line of defence, dirt still builds up in your duvet over time.

Washing your duvet is essential for keeping it a hygienic place for you to sleep. One of the biggest pests is dust mites – microscopic mites that can be present in their thousands. They live on the dead skin cells we shed in bed. It’s also estimated that we sweat out about 200ml every night – passing beyond the humble sheet. Washing helps cleanse the product of any accumulated dirt, moisture, and dust; it keeps it hygienic and refreshes the filling. More importantly, washing at 60°C kills dust mites. If people have allergies or asthma, dust mites can make symptoms worse.

Alternatively, our Allergy Defence Duvet is self-cleaning. It uses active probiotics to defend against the four most common allergens: pollen, cat, dog, and dust mite matter. For complete allergy protection, our Allergy Defence collection also includes a also offer a Pillow, Pillow Protector, and Mattress Protector.


Allergy Defence Duvet


Can I Put My Duvet In The Washing Machine?

Always check the label. Most duvets can be washed in the washing machine. However, some duvets may require a hand-wash or specialist washing methods. Just make sure your duvet can fit in your washing machine.

How Often Should I Wash My Duvet?

We recommend a duvet wash every few months (particularly for allergy sufferers) or at least twice a year.

Can I Wash A Feather Down Duvet?

Yes, you can wash a feather down duvet. However, we recommend following the instructions on the label. We’ve written a separate guide for feather down duvets. 


How To Wash A Feather Down Duvet


How To Clean A Duvet

The first thing you need to do when washing a duvet is check if it has natural (feather/down) or man-made fibre filling as this will determine which cleaning method to use.

How To Wash Synthetic Duvets

  • Care Labels: Check the care labels on synthetic products for the best washing instructions. As a general guide, the best synthetic products can be washed at 60°C.
  • Follow Care Label Instructions: Wash the duvet at the highest temperature recommended on the care label.
  • Ensure Proper Fit: Make sure your duvet fits into the washing machine with enough room for the fabric and fibres to agitate and get thoroughly clean. For larger togs and sizes like 13.5 tog king and super kingsize duvets, it's recommended to use a large capacity machine. Most modern washing machines now have a high-capacity drum as standard. Unlike some other products on the market, all size and tog rating options of Spundown duvets will fit into a standard 7kg drum.

View Spundown Duvet


How to Wash Natural Duvets

  • Handle with Care: Natural duvets require special attention and it's highly recommended to opt for specialist cleaning.
  • Feather-Filled Products: Feather-filled duvets can be washed at home, but be aware that the machine capacity may not be large enough, and they take longer to dry compared to products with a man-made siliconised filling like Smartfil® which repels water.
  • Thorough Drying is Essential: Proper drying is absolutely crucial for natural duvets. Even if a duvet feels dry to the touch, the filling inside often retains moisture. Failure to dry the duvet thoroughly can lead to the rotting of the filling. 
    • Use a tumble dryer. 
    • Add tumble dryer balls.
    • Leave out to dry on a sunny day for several hours to ensure complete dryness.

By handling natural duvets with care, ensuring appropriate drying, and considering specialist cleaning options, you can maintain the quality and longevity of your natural duvets.

How To Get Stains Out Of My Duvet?

Mop up any excess liquid as soon as possible. Try and move as much of the filling away from the area you need to clean and tie the area off with an elastic band. Dab (don’t rub) the stain with cold water (hot will set the stain) and add a mild detergent or a specialist stain removal product for more stubborn stains.

Should I Dry Clean My Duvet?

Dry cleaning isn’t advised as it uses chemicals that can affect the filling and be detrimental to your health. Professional cleaning is different as it’s a specialist version of washing at home. See how independent experts test the washability of a duvet.

How To Dry A Duvet?

Now that you’ve washed your duvet, it’s time to dry it. You must completely dry your duvet before putting it back on your bed as moisture can cause mildew to form and damage natural fillings.

How to dry a duvet without a dryer

You can dry your duvet naturally by placing it outside on a sunny day or in a warm room. Natural drying can take longer than tumble drying depending on the weather and airflow, but is the more eco-friendly choice. If you do choose to tumble dry your duvet, we advise using a cooler setting where possible. 

Our Night Owl Coverless Duvet is exceptionally quick to dry. Our Linen and Herringbone duvets can be dried and back on the bed in as little as 90 minutes, and our Cotton Waffle duvets in 120 minutes.


Now You Can Care For Your Duvet

Washing a duvet is easy with our duvet cleaning guide. We hope you have everything you need to enjoy better sleep in fresh bedding.

Anti-Allergy Bedding For Allergy Sufferers

Anti-Allergy Bedding For Allergy Sufferers

Are you one of the 1 in 3 adults who suffer from allergies? Do you dread going to bed because you know you'll be up all night sneezing, rubbing your itchy eyes, or struggling to breathe due to asthma symptoms? If so, you're not alone. Allergies can make it tough to get a good night's sleep, which can take a toll on your physical and mental health.


But what if your bedding could help you sleep soundly? Introducing The Fine Bedding Company's Allergy Defence range, the first 4-in-1 natural anti-allergy bedding solution on the market. Powered by HeiQ Allergen™ Tech which harnesses all-natural probiotics, this range is designed to combat four common allergens: dust mites, cat hair, dog hair, and pollen.

Hypoallergenic VS Anti-allergy: What’s the difference?

So what sets the Allergy Defence range apart from other hypoallergenic bedding options?

While "hypoallergenic" means that a product is relatively unlikely to cause an allergic reaction, "anti-allergy" means that it's been treated in some way to combat the development of allergies.

The Allergy Defence range goes a step further by using HeiQ Allergen™ Tech, which harnesses active probiotics to create enzymes that digest inanimate allergens. This gives the bedding a self-cleaning action, meaning you can enjoy clean and refreshing sleep with less laundering.

The Allergy Defence Range

The Allergy Defence range includes a duvet, pillow, pillow protector, and mattress protector, all of which are home washable. This range is created with an 100% biobased anti-allergy treatment and contains no harsh chemicals that could irritate your skin.

Spring Is Here: How Your Sleep Can Fluctuate with the Seasons

Spring Is Here: How Your Sleep Can Fluctuate with the Seasons

At The Fine Bedding Company, we believe that with seasonal changes we need to have some lifestyle adjustments. However, a good, regular sleep schedule, on the other hand, should never change. Further study is needed, although studies reveal that sleep is longer in the winter and shorter in the summer due to increasing day length and temperature in the warmer months. This article will discuss the key ways that the changing of the seasons affects our sleep and how your bedding can help with this.

Why Is Sleep Essential For Good Health?

Sleep is essential for good health, mood, cognitive function, and social life. Considering the significance of sleep, several sleep-related variables have been found, including (but not limited to) mood, personality, sleep quality, and demographic information such as age, gender, and income.

Circadian processes, or 24-hour cycles, regulate sleep behaviour. Internal timekeeping cells are used by circadian systems. These "clock cells" synchronise with the environment via "time clues" such as light and ambient temperature and act as a circadian pacemaker to coordinate other circadian responses to optimise to the environment, for example, in humans to promote sleep when it is dark and to be awake when it is light, to be asleep at the lowest point of core body temperature, and/or to avoid ambient temperature extremes that can impair sleep. To help with sleep control and waking cycles, the circadian pacemaker modulates body temperature and melatonin, a hormone that promotes and supports sleep.

Sleep In Lower Temperatures 

When it comes to sleeping, one of the most crucial aspects is the temperature environment surrounding you. The temperature in your home has an impact on the quality of your REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. The bedding you use can have an impact on your quality of sleep, the tog of the duvet and type play a big part.

A spundown quality duvet  as well as a heavyweight duvet can offer you ultimate comfort which can create a comfortable bedtime experience to fall asleep when changes of environment and temperature occur. A temperature regulating duvet will help offer you the right temperature you need to drift off and stay in slumberland. Also sleeping in the same bed as a partner can increase the temperature simply because of their body heat, so it may be worthwhile to consider separate duvets.

According to sleep specialists, temperatures ranging from 15.6 to 19.4 degrees Celsius are ideal for a good night's sleep. This temperature window guarantees that your core temperature does not rise much while you sleep, as an increase in body heat can occasionally cause the body to wake up. Cooler interior temperatures are obviously more doable during the winter when it is colder outdoors. If these low temperatures are too cold, our temperature control duvet may assist in managing the temperature so your sleep isn't disrupted in the winter or summer.

Get Outside To Avoid Sunlight Deprivation

Your circadian rhythms are altered whenever your exposure to sunshine is limited. Circadian rhythms are 24-hour cycles of mental, bodily, and behavioural changes. They serve as your internal clock, controlling how awake or drowsy you are. When it comes to your sleeping habits, the shorter shifts of the sun have two effects: You spend less time in the sun, the most natural source of vitamin D, and your melatonin levels rise as a result of the lack of light. Melatonin is a hormone produced by your brain in reaction to darkness that aids in the timing of your circadian cycles.

You may feel abnormally tired or sluggish in the early evening when your brain generates more of this hormone. According to research, vitamin D insufficiency is linked to an increased risk of sleep problems and correlates to less hours of sleep as well as a more disturbed overall night's sleep. To compensate for the lack of sunshine, spend time in the sun in the mornings and afternoons. If you don't have time to go for a stroll throughout the day, consider putting up your home office near a window.

Five Additional Ways to Help You Sleep Better With Seasonal Changes

Goose Down Duvet
  1. Keep yourself physically active.
  2. Increase your intake of vegetables and fruits, and avoid eating large meals late at night.
  3. Take a warm bath a couple of hours before bed to cool down your body and skin.
  4. During weekends, stick to the same sleeping routine.
  5. Buy breathable bedding and smart temperature bedding.
  6. Sleep with a silk eye mask to ensure you are in ultimate darkness.

World Sleep Day: How To Focus On Quality Sleep, Not Just Quantity

World Sleep Day: How To Focus On Quality Sleep, Not Just Quantity

The goal of World Sleep Day is to increase public knowledge of the value of sleep for physical and mental health. So many people are aware that they aren’t getting enough sleep but aren’t taking the right measures to get good sleep hygiene and habits.

Sleep is the foundation for your physical and mental wellbeing, it helps you to tackle tasks and go about your day with a clear mind and maintain your everyday routine. However, when people tend to get busy the first thing they will do is reduce their sleep hours but lack of sleep may give you more hours in the day but your productivity levels will drop. The best thing to do to improve your sleep hygiene, both in quantity and quality, is to make consistent lifestyle changes.

We believe that to improve your sleep hygiene you must enhance your surroundings and bedroom to include quality and comfortable bedding. In this article, we will look at the importance of sleep quality and healthy habits to include in your night time regime as well as the best bedding to help you gain restorative sleep.

How To Improve Sleep Quality?

Nearly all of the factors that may influence the quality of sleep are reversible. Daily struggles like stress and anxiety, caffeine intake late in the day, excessive alcohol consumption, digestive problems like gastroesophageal reflux, or a noisy bed partner can all have a negative effect on sleep quality.

However, over time you can change and alter your diet so that it doesn't impact the quality of your sleep and put sleep practices in place to counteract a loud partner-using earplugs- or light meditation to reduce stress from the day.

We must treat the quantity and quality of our sleep with the same seriousness that we do other aspects of maintaining our everyday health. You need sleep for everything in your mind and body to function at its peak levels but many adults and teenagers believe that getting enough sleep is a waste of time that could be spent working or having fun with peers. Sleep should be an immovable, non-negotiable activity even when you are busy.

We might be a better-rested, healthier, and more creative race of people if we reframe sleep as a separate activity, which it is.

Healthy Night Time Habits To Improve Sleep Quality 

Other methods for enhancing sleep quality and quantity include minimising ambient light and background noise, keeping rooms cool (68 degrees Fahrenheit is optimal), and avoiding using any electronic devices for 60 to 90 minutes prior to bed. It's beneficial to avoid all forms of caffeine after 2 o'clock, including caffeinated cocoa, caffeinated tea, and coffee.

Both adults and children can suffer from chronic sleep deprivation, but there are many things we can do to better sleep, which will have a huge impact.

The Perfect Bedding For Quality Sleep 

The Fine Bedding Company offers a plethora of bedding accompaniments to foster a quality nights sleep, such as pillow protectors, breathable and supportive bedding to name a few. The quality of your bedding is imperative to a great night's sleep and aids in your overall health and quality of life.

You'll undoubtedly benefit from bedding made to keep you cool if you frequently feel too warm in bed. The Smart Temperature line from The Fine Bedding Company uses temperature-controlling technology developed by Swiss textile pioneers HeiQ®. When temperatures increase, this technology helps dissipate heat, minimising deviations from the ideal in-bed temperature when you're prone to overheating, and promoting restful slumber.

When it comes to duvets, you might want different ones for the winter and summer depending on how warm or cold you get at night and whether or not it affects your ability to slumber. The Fine Bedding Company has a wide range of duvets available in varying styles and tog ratings. For instance, their Breathe® duvets are available in a range of tog ratings to meet your requirements all year long. Check out their Duvet Buying Guide for more information on how to select the ideal duvet for you.

Pillows physically support your head, neck, and shoulders in addition to providing a soft surface for your head. Make sure you don't experience discomfort after sleeping. Memory foam pillows are excellent for supporting your body while you sleep because they conform to the shape of your head, neck, and shoulders. They are specialised pillows that can help to improve any night's sleep. And because memory foam is inherently hypoallergenic, you can sleep soundly and comfortably.

How To Give a Spring Look To Your Bedroom in a Few Easy Steps

How To Give a Spring Look To Your Bedroom in a Few Easy Steps

Spring is nearly here - and so is the chance to change up your bedroom decor. In this article, we will be giving you our top tips for giving your room a new look for spring, including some of our favourite bedroom decor ideas!

Swap Out Those Sheets!

With the new season comes new changes that we want to make to our surroundings. In line with our spring clean-up this year, we may also want to prepare our sleeping arrangements for the change in weather. Our Sleep Experts recommend swapping your thick winter sheets for breathable cotton ones instead. Cotton sheets are the perfect pick for hot sleepers, as they allow you to sleep at a much cooler temperature.

Not to mention, cotton sheets are hypoallergenic as they are made from natural fibres. In the spring, some of us may notice the return of that dreaded hay fever. For those with sensitive noses, keeping a clean bed can be the difference between a good night's sleep or a restless one.

With the hypoallergenic properties of cotton sheets, they are also gentle on sensitive skin. With the change in weather, our skin can really suffer. Whether it’s heat rash, dryness, or general itchiness due to the rise in hay fever, cotton sheets are a must.

Our Smart Temperature Cooling 100% Cotton Sheet is the ideal fit for this spring season. The soft 200-thread count bed linen is created with the unique Smart Temp® technology from Swiss textile innovators HeiQ, delivering temperature control for optimal comfort. Besides cooling your body, these sheets are complete cotton, which means that you can really reap the benefits!

New Season, New Cushions                                              

Goose Down Duvet

A great way to add a pop of colour to your bedroom or, even, your living room is through cushions. Make your space look extra inviting this spring by adding some much-needed throw pillows to your bed.

For example, our Lime Green Velvet Square Cushion screams spring and would make for the perfect addition to a neutral bedspread. The classic soft matte velvet square cushion in bright lime green with coordinating piped-edge detailing makes for a comfortable and versatile piece that’s easy to coordinate with your living or sleeping space.

We also recommend pairing it with another one from our range, such as the Green Tropical Leaf Square Cushion. Add a relaxed look to your sofa or bed with a striking tropical leaf print cushion. This pattern captures a variety of botanical leaves in bright yet natural colours, making it a much-needed piece for spring - particularly alongside the Lime Green Velvet Square Cushion.

Add More Prints in Your Bedroom

Along with more pops of colour, prints are also a great way to welcome spring. Everything from wall tiles to flooring, to a splash of pattern on a neutral bedspread , adds depth and interest to your space. Patterns add visual intrigue to the room, and when placed in the right spot, can provide a completely seamless flow that allows for your eyes to travel around your space and admire everything in its entirety.

When it comes to introducing patterns, you should choose something that is timeless and classic - that way, you won’t have to change it up too often. Gingham is a great example of a pattern that is always on trend, and stylish. Plus, whilst gingham is typically a checked pattern, it is also neutral. Depending on the colorways, gingham can be the perfect addition to your spring bedroom.

Speaking of gingham, here at The Fine Bedding Company, we may have some exciting additions to our range coming soon. Sign up below for exclusive early access!
