Bedding sets - our pick of the best

Brighten up your bedroom scheme with new bed linen - the right choice can be as good as a fresh decorating scheme

A new bedding set is the simplest way to give your bedroom an instant refresh. Coloured geometric prints add instant interest and suit the popular Scandi scheme, large botanicals make country decor bloom, while muted motifs and plains finish traditional schemes with subtle style. New bedding sets are great buys for when the seasons change and can bring a whole new look to a bedroom without having to lift a paintbrush or hang new curtains. Whatever your preference, the right bed linen will set the scene for a perfect night's sleep.
