Choosing your bedding can be overwhelming with so much choice on offer in a vast array of sizes and materials. If you know what size bed you have before you reach the store, this can ease any stress and help you choose.
Here is an easy guide, making sure you get the duvet right the first time:
Duvets can be bought in different thicknesses known as ‘togs’. You can pick togs according to the season, so you could get a lower tog for the Summer months and a much thicker tog for the colder, Winter months. Here is a break down on the right duvet tog rating for you.
3 Tog – A super thin duvet for people who have a constantly high core temperature. Perfect for the Summer months or for those who live in hot climates.
4.5 Tog – A light duvet, ideal for use in the Summer months or warmer climates.
7 Tog – A medium thickness, this is perfect for Spring and Autumn, or particularly cold Summers.
9 Tog – Slightly warmer, this duvet can be used in the Spring and Autumn months.
10.5 Tog – Perfect for Winter and in homes with central heating.
13.5 Tog – A thinker duvet for Winter cosines in the colder months or if your home is quite cold.
Four Seasons – This duvet will cover you for all seasons.

For a luxurious feel and super softness when you sleep, consider a mattress topper or enhancer. It adds that extra ‘poof’ for a deluxe night’s sleep.
Mattress toppers come in synthetic and natural materials. You can buy one for any sized bed that you have. Also look out for anti-allergy, breathable and washable protectors to make your life easier. Mattress toppers come in a variety of thickness, so try them out before you buy them.
For mums and dads, buying bedding for your child is essential and something you want to get right. You need sensitive materials for your child’s sensitive skin. So, make sure you get soft wool, breathable, lightweight materials that are also anti-allergy. For those messy pups, it is essential that you get washable bedding and mattress and pillow protectors to prevent them from being damaged.
