Whether you’re enjoying breakfast in it, sneaking in for a mid-afternoon nap or cuddling up after a long day of homeschooling/baking bread/working, there’s no denying that slipping into our your bed is one of the simplest, yet greatest, pleasures that we can afford ourselves.
Our beds signify rest, romance and reading in comfort and, as my mother tells me, things always look better after a good, long sleep.
And so we’re always on the lookout for ways to upgrade this, arguably most important, part of our home.
Though new pillows or a mattress topper are brilliant, they are also expensive, and so we’re big fans of upgrading our sheets for a cost-effective way of making our beds even more sumptuous.
Luxury bed sheets are soft and smooth, they keep you cool but cosy and they can withstand wear-and-tear for those times you coax the dog, or the children, onto the bed.
So, we’ve rounded up five of the best places to buy luxury bed sheets from and even selected our top pick from each to help you make the difficult decision of which new set to buy yourself.
Go to our room? With pleasure.
5 of the best places to buy luxury bed sheets
La Redoute | Shop here
Top pick: Washed Linen Duvet Cover | £80
For years, La Redoute was the well-kept secret of interior designers and style insiders who wanted to kit out their home in luxe-looking furnishings without a designer price tag.
Now, it is mostly common knowledge that La Redoute stocks a wide range of luxe homeware, including a sumptuous selection of bedding.
With a wide variety of styles, patterns and materials, La Redoute’s real eye for style is what unites their offering, whether you’re opting for a bold star pattern or a dainty patterned throw.
We have fallen particularly head-over-heels for this Washed Linen Duvet Cover which comes in 20 different colours - from nude to amber - and has received over 1,000 reviews on the shopping site.
The linen bedding will help keep you cool in summer and warm in winter and, best of all, the duvet cover gets softer and more beautiful over time.
John Lewis & Partners | Shop here
Top pick: Specialist Temperature Balancing 400 Thread Count Cotton Bedding | £130
Any luxury bed sheets roundup is always going to include our beloved John Lewis. The department store has a wide range of luxe, long-lasting bedding and is well-known for its easy-care, easy wash selection.
Most of their bedding is available in sizes single through to super king, with a range of pillow size options too.
Our pick of the bunch is their nifty Specialist Temperature Balancing 400 Thread Count Cotton Bedding which was referred to be one shopper as skin to “sleeping in a cocoon of silk.”
The 100% cotton bed linen is made using an innovative spinning technique that helps you maintain an even body temperature and so is perfect on warm nights and chilly ones - plus is ideal for anyone who suffers from hot flushes or cold extremities
Thread count refers to the number of threads per square inch. Typically, the higher the thread count, the softer and smoother the feel - and this set is 400, aka. pretty soft.
The White Company | Shop here
Top pick: Portobello Bed Linen Collection | From £35
The White Company is luxe through-and-through and a favourite of high-end designers and celebs everywhere.
Though their range of bedding only comes in variations of white (obviously) they have diversified their range using texture, pattern and style.
From pillowcases with elegant frills down the side to duvets with silk trim to add an extra level of sumptuousness to proceedings, bed sheets from The White Company all have a five-star hotel feel to them.
Our current favourite is the casual aesthetic of the Portobello Bed Linen Collection. The beautiful blue and washed-petal options inject a little colour into your room for an instant bedroom refresh.
The bedding is made from a 200-thread-count cotton sateen, which is washed to reduce shine and create a soft-brushed feeling, which still maintains the silky feel and drape of sateen.
Dunelm | Shop here
Top pick: Dorma Tatianna Natural Jacquard Duvet Cover | £70
Ranging from duvet covers and bed sheets to mattress toppers and pregnancy pillows, you’ll find everything you could possibly need to build the most relaxing bedroom environment at Dunelm.
Offering contemporary, luxury looks that will completely transform your room, with additional features to help you really personalise your bed; from goose down filling to anti-allergy properties.
From bright and bold bedsheets to intricate monochrome designs and a range of soft children’s bedding, the range is extensive and enchanting.
We can’t get enough of this regal-looking duvet cover, designed with an exquisite high sheen jacquard featuring garlands of butterflies, flowers and leaves gracefully woven in a soft grey and oyster colour palette.
It will immediately upgrade any bed and will elevate inexpensive pillowcases or frames to give the whole space a luxe look and feel.
Wayfair | Shop here
Top pick: Dartmouth 200 TC Duvet Cover Set | £18.99
Wayfair offer no less than 9,000 different bedding options, sets and styles, which can feel a little daunting.
Luckily though, you can narrow down your search and shop easily by colour, size, customer rating, style and item.
The good thing is though, that if you’re looking for individual items, full sets or multi-packs, you’ll be able to find it all in one place.
Plus, when you sign up to the newsletter, you’ll get £15 off your first order.
We love this gorgeous spring set that makes us think of quaint country cottages and meandering through gorgeous gardens in full bloom.
The set has received lots of glowing reviews, including one from a sleep-savvy shopper who wrote: “It is really soft and a perfect fit for my queen size bed. The quality is great, excellent buy for the price. Happy customer!”
