We are suckers for patterns and bold colours, but that doesn't mean we don't have a soft spot for timeless, wonderful white bedding. Perhaps a choice that’s a little daunting for some – if we had a pound for every time we’ve heard “I’d love to have white bedding but…” followed by a list of reasons (which almost always includes pets, children, concerns about keeping it whiter than white, or even clumsy partners who might spill coffee in bed), then we’d be sunning ourselves on a beach somewhere exotic. But let us talk you through why white bedding is simply perfect and perhaps you’ll change your mind…
Simple, Yet Never Boring
Let’s get straight to the point; white sheets are not boring. In fact, white is an incredibly versatile option for your bed. Unlike coloured or patterned sheets, white bedding goes with everything. And you can always make it more interesting by looking for styles with additional features like our White Violet 100% Linen Bed Linen or White Elsie Bed linen, with their pretty embroidered edging, or go for our textured White Seersucker Bed Linen to add some understated elegance.
An Easy Update
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: if you’re looking for a quick bedroom refresh then changing your sheets is the quickest switch-up of all. Popping crisp white cotton sheets on your bed gives the impression of a newly decorated room, without the expense of painting the walls (and we all know how hard it is to pick just the right shade – oh how easy it is to paint a room and then realise it’s just not quite what we were after). You'll be surprised at what a difference it makes.
Let Your Favourites things Shine
If you have a show-stopping bed or artwork that you adore then let that be the focal point of your room. White bedding gives you a fresh and neutral canvas to build up and add personality to. Dress your white bed linen with cosy cushions in pastels or bright colours. Add texture with a waffle or quilted throw, or layer up a mixture of throws and flat sheets to create some intrigue. The simpler your bedding, the more dramatic you can be with the rest of the room.
If you're struggling to make a decision when it comes to your bedroom decor, keep your linens white to make a compromise and keep the peace. White offers the perfect balance between masculine and feminine decor. We also know that white bedding is the top choice when it comes to spare bedrooms, for this exact reason. You won't have a guest that's going to grumble if they're sleeping in simple, stylish white sheets. If you're desperate to add a hint of colour, you can always hide a colourful fitted sheet under your white linen as a little joyful surprise.
Improve Sleep with Calming White
Have you ever wondered why, after a night in a hotel, you leave thinking, "that's the best sleep I've had in ages"? Well, it's not a coincidence that most hotels use white bedding as their top choice. As well as being a simply beautiful choice, white bed linen has a calming effect on your mood, allowing you to relax and sleep soundly. You can recreate the silky luxury of hotel quality sheets in your own bedroom with our White Luxury 600 Thread Count Bed Linen.
White Bedding - Timeless Elegance
Trends come and go – we know this more than anyone. Something that's a bestseller one year, can soon be replaced as another trend takes its place. However, what we do know is that our White 100% Linen bedding is a best seller week after week, year after year, proving that white bedding really is a timeless classic and never goes out of fashion.
