With National Bed Month taking place in March, we’re bringing you our pick of the finest threads on which to lay your head… and exploring what your bedding choices might say about you!
Ahead of the trends
They might end up on the floor at bedtime, but as far as you're concerned there is no such thing as too many fluffed-up scatter cushions. And no bed is complete without a big cosy throw, right? You love nothing more than creating a gallery wall and coordinating your furnishings in a knowingly haphazard way – it’s fair to say that your bedroom is worthy of gracing any influencer’s social!
Likely to feature on your bedding: Whatever's hot right now on The Gram! Karate-chopped cushions, bohemian prints, paisley and patchwork.
Best buy for you: Pure Cotton Butterfly Bedding Set, from £27.50 at M&S
You’re someone for whom only the best will do! Freshly laundered Egyptian cotton sheets in the highest possible thread count are the order of the day. Ideally in white, and if they have those swish hotel stripes (if you know, you know), even better! And there’s no shame in splurging on quality bedding. After all, we do spend on average 33 years of our life in bed, so knock yourself out... not literally, of course!
Likely to feature on your sheets: Pure class and nothing else. You’ve spent a lot of money on those sheets, so why hide them?!
Best buy for you: White Mini Waffle Stripe Bedlinen, from £45 at Sainsbury's
The Love Machine
For you, glamour is the key to a restful room. Your walls are adorned with mirrors in opulently gilded frames and on your glass-topped furniture sits fancy perfume bottles and pretty trinkets, while silk scarves drape across your lampshade, diffusing the light to create the ultimate soft focus. With a bedroom straight out of a Mills & Boon, you’re a real glamour puss and you’re not afraid to show it!
Likely to feature on your bedding: Shimmer, sequins, velvet, silk trims, and perhaps some carefully placed negligee, too!
Best buy for you: Linen House, Taira Duvet Set, from £39.99 at TK Maxx
Calm and collected
Bedding for you is no frills (literally). And no florals either for that matter. You favour muted tones and clean lines. Your room is minimalist, with the occasional nod to Scandi-chic or mid-century modern design and perhaps a prayer plant or yukka dotted around to cleanse the air. It’s a refuge from the stresses of everyday life and the place you feel at your most ‘zen’.
Likely to feature on your bedding: Crisp, organic cotton and recycled fabrics in natural, muted tones. For you, less really is more.
Best buy for you: Linen-blend duvet cover set, £39.99 from H&M
Fun and flirty!
There’s certainly nothing dull about you! Your bedding is bright and fun, with quirky patterns and clashing colours. You’re not too bothered if everything in your house coordinates – after all, you have more interesting things to focus your attention on. For you, a bed is just somewhere to lay your head (or whatever!), so why waste money on super-fancy bedding when you can have fun with it instead?
Likely to feature on your bedding: Fun, fun, fun! Cacti, cats, geishas, superheroes – the sky’s the limit when it comes to your sheets!
Best buy for you: Check Sausage Dog Duvet Double, £14 from Wilko
