Stay snug all season with our warm bedding, from soft brushed-cotton bedding sets to our highest-tog duvets, cosy jersey sheets and blankets for winter

 

Cosy up with a winter duvet


When temperatures start to drop, there’s nothing like snuggling up in warm winter bedding to thaw you out, help you relax and boost your mood in moments. Here’s how to make your bedroom a snug sanctuary where you can keep cosy when it’s cold outside.

1. A warm winter duvet is a must. Look for the highest-tog duvet you can find – anything from 10.5 tog upwards should keep out the chill. For the ultimate in luxury, try a soft goose-down filling or, for sneeze-free snoozing, opt for one of our anti-allergy duvets. Top tip: when summer comes around, store your thick duvet in a vacuum-pack bag so it takes up less space.

2. You can’t beat 100% jersey cotton sheets for an extra-snuggly feeling. Whatever design and colour you choose, make sure it fits in with the tones of your other layers of bedding for a coordinated (and supremely cosy) look. You could also try sheets made from textured fabrics such as brushed cotton, or even try fleece bedding for added tactile appeal.

3. Layer up. Add warm blankets, winter throws and bedspreads for your snuggest night’s sleep yet. Multiple layers mean you can add or take them away so you’re always at the perfect temperature to dose off and drift away.

4. A warm duvet and winter blankets are key, but sometimes it’s the little finishing touches that make all the difference. Choose bedside lighting that gives your room a warm, restful glow; try Temperature Smart curtains to help block out the cold as well as the light; and don’t forget to make sure you’re as snug as your winter bedding – warm pyjamas and snuggly socks will help you stay cosy on chilly mornings, even after you get up (but we say lie in as long as you can).
