I'm looking for recommendations on all of the above, also on bed linen too. I was thinking of heading to dunelm mill for the bed linen? Is that a good place to go or should i look elsewhere.

Dunelm mill is good for bed linen and sometimes has really nice duvets and pillows.

RudeElf Mon 28-Dec-15 15:36:44

Thanks jane. Are there any brands of duvets/pillows to look out for?

VulcanWoman Mon 28-Dec-15 15:40:28

Yes, I agree too, they have a great range, they do mattresses too ordering online, got my sons bed from there.

I like Dorma, but fogarty and silentnight are ok too. It partly depends on what you like. I like two sorts of pillows in my bed (not feather as I'm allergic) and a warm but lightweight duvet. I think my current one is a dorma soft touch 10.5 tog and the pillows fogarty.

Dunelm for linen. I bought a John Lewis basics duvet last year and it's excellent .

What's your price range?

I would recommend a woolen duvet from Baavet.

White company or John Lewis for bedlinen

I was going o say Baavet as well, they're amazing!

M&s duvet when they're doing one of their 20% off weekends is great if you can time it right

RudeElf Mon 28-Dec-15 15:59:14

I'm not even sure what a good price range is for this kind of thing. I've always bought cheap in poundstretcher or asda and argos for my mattress which has broken springs after only 4 years (with precisely zero vigorous sex to blame!)

I would like to buy decent stuff that will last as long as possible. Wrt pillows, all mine go flat after not very long so i would like ones that wont do that. For duvet, my current one all the filling has gone out of shape and gathered all down one end and just wont shake back up again.

If you can, I would buy a magniflex mattress, you can get them from QVC online. I've had one for about 3 years now and I love it... its got a memory foam core and a removable memory foam cover, and you can turn bits over to tailor how soft or firm you would like. It's like sleeping on a cloud every single night.

Look at the duvet before buying it, the good ones have channels in both directions which mean the filling can't go to one end.

RudeElf Mon 28-Dec-15 17:50:43

Thanks i will go to dunelm and have a feel of the duvets and pillows. Will also good baavet and magniflex.

Just bought a great budget mattress from mattresses online, speedy delivery too.

I'm buying a mattress from ikea next time-you can swap if within three weeks if you don't like it!

RudeElf Mon 28-Dec-15 20:20:45

Ive had a look and the magniflex mattresses look like they could be a good choice, not as expensive as i was expecting either. Going to try and get to dunelm tomorrow, i looked on their website and their sale is on so should get something nice for a decent price.

I've bought M&S bounceback pillows over the last couple of years, they are their cheapest (£7 each or 2 for £12) and we like them a lot. A bit of a revelation after years of ancient old feather ones that I eventually realised were bringing ds out in hives.

I am dithering over a Baavet duvet, what weight did you go for?

Artandco Mon 28-Dec-15 20:35:21

Winter weight Baavet here. Have had around 18 months

VegetablEsoup Mon 28-Dec-15 20:35:53

ikea
they have uk sizes as well now.
you can test the matresses and duvets come in different materials and togs.

WhoTheFuckIsSimon Mon 28-Dec-15 21:20:36

I went for the heaviest weight they do for my Baavet. Bought it at the beginning of Sept and so far it's been fine. Our house is cold and I'm a freezing person generally. I'm a bit worried next July it might be too much!

ikea does very nice memory foam pillows, then furniture village have lovely memory foam bed and mattresses as well!

The Qvc 30 day money back guarantee applies to the mattresses too, so if it didn't suit a courier would collect it and you would receive a full refund.
I'm planning on buying my dc the single mattresses when we do their rooms in the new year.

I've always had amazing stuff from King of Cotton.

Love their microfibre cluster duvets and pillows. All the luxury and weight of feathers, but not feather, which I won't have due to the horrific way they're sourced.

I'm probably weird as I like really heavy weight duvets, having 2 superking ones on the bed.
