Bed linen: The must-have for a restful sleep

We spend around eight hours a night sleeping – ideally deeply and soundly so that we can start the new day well rested. That’s why it’s important that we feel comfortable in the bedroom and especially in our bed. And here, in addition to the bed and the right mattress, bed linen plays a central role. After all, duvets and pillows should not only look beautiful, but also feel good. We’ll tell you below what different bedding products are available and what you should pay attention to when buying!

The right material for your bed linen

Whether you want to sleep in plain-colored bed linen, sleep in floral prints or prefer classic striped patterns remains a question of personal taste. However, with regard to the material, there are some special features that you should consider before purchasing. Because fabrics or materials of different quality and weave meet different requirements. Here is a brief overview:

Skin-friendly & easy to care for: cotton bed linen

A cotton duvet cover is particularly popular. It is easy to care for, durable and can be used all year round. Cotton sets also impress with their pleasant feel and skin-friendly properties. Cotton bed linen is also incredibly versatile: you can choose between percale, satin, renforcé, jersey, flannel and flannel. The natural fiber is processed differently for the different qualities.

Durable & moisture-absorbing: Renforcé bed linen

Renforcé bed linen is made of medium-fine cotton that is still durable. If you value a pleasant feel and a smooth surface, you should choose the standard weave. Renforcé also has a temperature-balancing effect and absorbs moisture well – for maximum sleeping comfort all night long.

Soft & warm: microfiber bed linen

Microfiber bed linen is made from synthetic fibers that reliably absorb sweat. Since air chambers form between the fibers, the material is particularly absorbent and breathable.

Shiny & cool: Satin & Mako-Satin bed linen

Satin bed linen has always impressed with its glamorous shine and smooth surface. The cheaper cotton version Mako Satin also has the same elegant shimmer. Mako is particularly robust and easy to care for – the bed linen no longer needs to be ironed after spinning. To be on the safe side, read the enclosed care label beforehand.

Bedding size

Bed linen is clothing for bed. And just like buying the right clothes, you also have to pay attention to the right size when choosing bed linen. This size depends on the dimensions of the pillow and blanket that are to be covered with it. The standard dimensions for a pillowcase are 80 x 80 cm and for the duvet cover 135 x 200 cm.

However, there are numerous pillows and duvets whose dimensions differ from this standard size. These are, for example, pillows with the popular dimensions of 40 x 80 cm and duvets in extra width, extra length and comfort sizes.

In addition to bed linen for adults, there is of course also a huge selection of children’s bed linen and baby bed linen. This impresses with its enchantingly cute motifs and cheerful colors.

No matter what size you need your bed linen, one thing should not be forgotten – the bed sheet. This is also available in different sizes, which of course depend on the size of the existing mattress. Ideally, when buying the bed sheet, you should make sure that it can be combined well with the bed linen. Of course you can also get a set consisting of bed linen and sheets. However, you should pay close attention to which sheet size the package includes. Because this is usually the standard size.

Care tips for a fresh duvet cover

Since it is used for several hours every night, bed linen should be washed regularly. In order to enjoy your duvet covers for as long as possible, you should pay attention to a few things when cleaning and caring for them:

Before washing, turn the covers inside out to protect the outside. Close all zippers and buttons so that no other items of laundry get caught inside. Wash your duvet cover at at least 60 degrees so that all bacteria are completely removed. However, be sure to pay attention to the recommendation in the washing label, as delicate fabrics such as silk must not be washed at high temperatures. The addition of hygiene detergent is also recommended here. You should avoid using fabric softener as this can reduce the absorbency of the bed linen.

It’s best to hang up the covers immediately after washing so that fewer wrinkles form. But there are also bed linens that do not need to be ironed: these include, for example, wrinkle-resistant plain fabric and jersey bed linen. We also recommend taking a look at the washing label. Many duvet covers can be put in the dryer and do not need to be ironed afterwards.

In order to be able to sleep peacefully as an allergy sufferer, the bed accessories should be washed regularly – at least 60 degrees! There are also special covers for mattresses, pillows and blankets: the so-called encasings protect against allergens. You can then cover this with bed linen that suits your taste and the season.

Find the right duvet covers for every season

Who doesn’t know this: in summer the blanket is too warm, in winter you would like to have two. A heater or fan can help, but the right bed linen can also regulate the temperature. Certain fabrics have a cooling effect or absorb moisture well, while others are particularly soft and warming.

Cooling: summer bed linen

When temperatures rise, we like to turn to cooling fabrics such as satin. But bed linen made from linen or cotton in percale or seersucker quality are also ideal for summer nights. Thanks to the characteristic seersucker pattern of smooth and ruffled stripes, the air can circulate well. This means that no heat is stored and the duvet cover has a temperature-balancing effect. Bedding made from sweat-reducing linen and breathable percale promises the same effect.

Warming: winter bed linen

It has been proven that we spend more time in bed in winter than in summer. And of course this also includes the right winter bed linen. Similar to our favorite winter sweater, it should be extra thick and warm to keep us comfortably soft. The best materials for this are flannel and flannel: their brushed fibers make flannel and flannel bed linen particularly fluffy and keep you warm even on cold winter nights. And with the right winter duvet, the cold season becomes even cozier.

Blend: Four Seasons Bedding

A practical solution is the so-called four-season bed linen. So pillows and duvet covers that ensure a balanced sleeping environment at any time of the year. These include models made from materials such as Renforcé or jersey, but also high-quality, beautiful bed linen made from silk is a real all-rounder. Tip: Reversible bed linen provides variety! With the right 4-season duvet you can ensure restful sleep all year round.

Designs in unlimited variety

Floral patterns, ornaments, images of all kinds, animal fur look, photo prints, stripes, dots, checks and circles – there are no limits to the designs on bed linen. The entire selection is also represented in the color palette of these dresses for bed.

Which design you choose is a question of personal taste. However, a little care should be taken to ensure that the bed linen matches the furnishings and wall and window design. The choices are still huge and there are numerous options to give your bedroom a new look or even style with bed linen in a wide variety of designs.

The design of the bed linen and fitted sheets can be chosen to suit the seasons, among other things. In summer, the bed can be designed in bright, colorful and friendly colors, in pure white and also with airy and floral patterns. In contrast, in winter it is more muted and calm tones with classic patterns such as checks or other graphic designs that create a dreamy cosiness.

Color nuances similar to those of the foliage and earthy natural tones are also suitable in autumn.

But there is also suitable bed linen for special occasions, so that you can adapt the look of your bed to these “holidays”. How about, for example, traditional Christmas bed linen or special models for weddings, Valentine’s Day or Easter?

After all, nothing is more romantic than spending Valentine’s Day in a fresh bed decorated all over with Cupid and hearts. And nothing is cozier than waking up among jumping reindeer in a dreamy winter landscape during the Christmas holidays.

When designing your bed, you can use your creativity and your individual taste. Create a comfortable and cozy dream island that radiates the atmosphere of the surrounding area.

Which color should I choose for my bedding?

  • White bedding suits almost every style, from minimalist to Scandinavian to classic and romantic. White bed linen can also be combined well with colorful accents to create a fresh and modern look.
  • Blue bedding gives a bedroom a calming and relaxing feel. Combined with white or cream-colored furniture and accessories, it creates a classic and timeless atmosphere.
  • Green bedding can bring the feeling of calm and nature into the bedroom. A combination of green bedding and wooden furniture or plants creates a natural and calming atmosphere.
  • Pink bed linen is suitable for romantic and playful styles. A combination of delicate bed linen and playful accessories such as flowers, pillows and decorative items in similar tones give the room a warm and cozy atmosphere.
  • Beige bedding is an excellent choice for a modern, minimalist style. The color pairs well with other neutral tones like gray and white and can be paired with metallic accents like gold or copper to add a touch of elegance.
  • Gray bedding gives a bedroom a calm and elegant atmosphere. Gray is a versatile color and pairs well with other neutral tones as well as vibrant colors like red and blue.

The best duvet for your bedroom

There is no other place where we spend as much time as in bed – with the right blanket you can optimize your night’s sleep. Everything from down, feather and microfiber blankets to light and winter blankets is available in stores. With our guide you will find the right one.

Which duvet is the right one?

In general, light blankets are perfect for the warmer months and densely filled blankets for the winter and transitional periods. Quilts or blankets are equipped with chambers that ensure even distribution of the contents and good heat regulation. The filling and distribution of duvets depends on your requirements: Do you prefer ease of care, good air exchange or products that combine both? Find out in the following chapters.

Duvets for every season:

  • 4 season duvet: The special thing about 4 season duvets is that they can be used all year round. The two blankets of different heat classes can be connected using a snap fastener, Velcro fastener or a band and adapted to the season. Due to the different filling weights, the all-season duvet is a summer, transitional and winter duvet in one.
  • Winter duvet: Winter duvets are filled with 800-2000 g of down, feathers or fibers. This means they have greater thermal insulation and keep the body temperature constant at 36-37 °C. Winter blankets are available as cassette and chamber beds. The closed chambers prevent the contents from clumping and ensure that the blanket warms evenly throughout.
  • Summer duvet: Summer duvets are particularly light because they contain less down, feather or synthetic fiber filling. If you tend to sweat or feel cold quickly, the filling should be smaller or more voluminous. This has a temperature-balancing and moisture-regulating effect. Thanks to the thinly woven fabric, the blanket absorbs moisture during the night and is released when it is aired out the next day.

Which filling for the duvet?

Down and feathers differ because of the keel. Down does not have any, and is therefore somewhat softer and lighter than feathers. Down duvets have a temperature-regulating effect as they absorb the moisture beneath the duvet.

Feathers visually fill out the bed linen well and are slightly heavier than down, but like down, they support air circulation.

Synthetic fibers are particularly breathable and easy to wash. They are just as light as down duvets and are in no way inferior to them.

This is how you find the right duvet size!

When it comes to duvet sizes, the rule of thumb is: the duvet should always be at least 50 cm wider than the mattress. Children’s duvets also follow this rule. For a narrow single bed, a duvet measuring 135×200 cm is recommended. For wider single beds, an oversized duvet, i.e. a duvet measuring 155×200 cm. For double beds, a large duvet for 2 people measuring 200×200 cm should be chosen.

If you are still unsure which duvet dimensions are right for your bed, we recommend that you take a look at our detailed guide. Here we explain to you what matters when it comes to the size of your duvet.

How often should you change the duvet?

You can change your duvet according to your personal taste. In general, there are duvets for all four seasons: summer beds, summer semi-seasonal duvets, winter semi-annual and winter duvets with their respective heat classes. Therefore, consider this before you buy a duvet: If you sweat very quickly even in winter, it is advisable to use a transitional or even summer duvet. If you get cold easily, you should choose a fuller down duvet or a feather duvet. It makes sense to test which duvet suits you best. However, 4-season duvets are practical: such a duvet set can be individually adapted to all seasons by linking two duvets with different filling quantities.

Household hack: Wash the duvet – this is how you do it right!

We spend most of our lives in bed. The long stay and body perspiration make it a necessity to clean the blanket at least once a year according to the manufacturer’s instructions. The use of delicate detergent and special down detergent is recommended, but fabric softeners are generally not recommended. The manufacturer’s instructions should also be followed when it comes to temperature, as this can vary greatly from blanket to blanket. It is advisable to use a dryer with two tennis balls, as down duvets in particular dry slowly. It is important to air out the down or feather duvet every day. This allows the humidity that has been absorbed overnight to escape and the filling does not clump together. In humid weather, the blanket should not be aired out as it retains moisture.

Other suitable products

Thinly woven bedding is ideal for pure down beds, as this allows the down to develop its full effect and regulate the temperature through the fabric. Pure duvets with feathers require bedding made of thicker material. Feathers are somewhat more robust than down due to their keel and would possibly pierce material that is too thin.
