Find the right bedding for summer

Now that the weather is starting to look up, it’s time to start thinking about switching to summer bedding. You need to be at a comfortable temperature during the night to make sure you get your all-important 8 hours. If you’re too hot and agitated, you’ll find you have a restless night sleep.

Don’t worry, changing your winter bedding to summer bedding is simple and only takes a couple of steps. The first thing you need to switch is your duvet. When you’re buying your new duvet, you need to select a low tog rating for summer. Over the winter months, you’ll need a duvet with a tog rating of 13.5 or 15.0 to keep you nice and toasty, but in the summer, opt for a duvet with a tog rating of 4.5. This is a very light quilt which will keep you at a nice temperature on summer nights.

Spring Style For Your Home

As the temperatures rise and the sun starts to shine through your windows, it might be time to store away the thick duvet and cosy throws for when the weather gets colder again and get your home ready for the spring/summer season.

There are lots of touches that you can add to your home to create a cosy spring time feel, and you don't have to change your entire décor to do so.

Small touches like bunches of bright and pastel flowers or daffodils are perfect for brightening up the dull corners, and a few extra textile products can transform your home completely. Candles in fresh scents are also a nice touch for the spring season.

During the autumn months, you may like to fill your home with autumnal flowers in oranges and brown, cosy throws and fairylights, before the Christmas decorations take over during the winter. With a Christmas tree, lights and festive trinkets around your home during December and into the New Year, your home may feel a little bare and boring in the first couple of months in the year.

Now that spring is here, let's look at some little touches you can add to bring the sunshine into your home...

As the seasons change and summer is well and truly over, it's time to look forward to seeing what autumn and winter bring. This time of year is always full of events and parties with Halloween, Bonfire Night and, of course, Christmas. But the weather often doesn't play nice and there is nothing better than curling up in your warm house on an evening instead.

However, it also means your energy bills go up, but the budget doesn't quite stretch to having the heating on 24/7. A lot of people also love to inject a bit of each season into their home but a complete redecoration of the whole house four times a year is just not possible.

So, how do you get your bedroom ready for winter?

We've put together some budget-friendly tips for your bedroom to ensure that it is warm, cosy and ready. The bedroom is the place where you spend most time relaxing, and is also the easiest room to overhaul on a budget with a variety of textiles that will suit any style of home and any taste.

Here are our favourite ways to get your bedroom winter ready...

Making small changes in your home can help to create a cleaner and greener environment as well as save on those pricey energy bills. It can be done without breaking the bank, here are a few simple ways of cutting down your energy costs:

Change to energy saving light bulbs

They last 10x longer than a standard bulb and can save you £40 per bulb installed.

Don’t overfill your kettle

Only fill the kettle with the minimum amount needed to save energy.

Unplug devices not in use

Devices continue to draw power even when they’re in standby mode or not in use, this is known as ‘vampire power’.

Close the door

This is an obvious one. Stop heat from escaping by closing doors, especially in the room you’re heating. Most of our heat escapes through floors, skirting boards and any gaps in doors and windows so it’s a good idea to use draught excluders. Thick or lined curtains stop heat from escaping through any cracks in window frames too, this can reduce heat loss by as much as 25%

Fighting those winter chills?

Throw on a blanket. Electric fires are one of the biggest energy consumers so avoid using them unless absolutely necessary.

Put a lid on it

Put lids on saucepans when cooking, not only will this save you 30% of the energy used when cooking, but food will cook quicker.

Shower, don’t bath.

Showering uses 2/5ths of the water needed for a bath.

Don’t rely on the tumble dryer

Tumble dryers consume more energy than most washing machines. End your wash with a fast spin to remove as much water as possible and then dry on a clotheshorse.

Think ahead

Set your heating to come on 15-30 minutes before you need it to, and to turn off at least 30 minutes before you go to bed.

Buy energy efficient appliances

Buying an energy efficient fridge freezer could make as much as £70 difference to your energy bill compared to an inefficient model. Compare efficiency of models before you commit to buying.
