Get Your Bed Ready For Spring

Spring is on its way with the days seeming a little longer and brighter. Easter is just around the corner and is usually the biggest DIY weekend of the year so why not get ready to clear out, brighten up and get an amazing nights sleep.

Open your windows wide and let the spring air flow through your home sweeping out the winter. It’s so true that most people feel the need to do a thorough ‘Spring Clean’ to get rid of the stale air and dust and put the dark winter nights behind them.

Preparing your bedroom for Spring is all about clearing out the old, cleaning any dust away and then it’s time to introduce into your bedroom beautiful, soft 100% organic cotton bed linen, a lighter weight duvet and new pillows for that refreshed spring feeling.

A great place to start getting the bed updated is at the base and work up to the top of the bed.

  1. Take off your sheets, mattress protectors and valance and if possible vacuum the mattress, divan base and under the bed. Wash any bed linen at 60°C to kill any dust mites. If you’re looking at replacing your valance, the Tuck Top Valance makes it quick and easy – in tests it took less than 1 minute to put it in place and 17 seconds to remove! And that’s with just 1 person and without lifting the mattress at all
  2. Change your mattress enhancer (if you have one). Going into Spring and Summer is all about keeping cool. There are different options – Silk is great for all year round cool; Wool and Alpaca are brilliant for temperature control; Duck Down and Goose Down give a soft blissful feel to your mattress.
  3. What type of sheets do you like to sleep on? Choose from Percale for a crisp, cool finish or the silky feel of Sateen. Check to depth of your mattress and choose an extra deep fitting sheet to prevent the bottom sheet pinging off in the night.
  4. Choosing a duvet cover is all about personal taste. For ease and flexibility, choose bed linen fabrics in white so your bedroom accessories, cushions and throws, can ring the changes,
  5. Do you need to change your duvet? Throughout the winter you’ve probably had a 12 or 13.5 Tog so now you may want to switch to a 9.0 Tog for the Spring and then 4.5 Tog for the Summer.
  6. To finish off your bed and just in case the night is chilly, use a throw or blanket.
