Wondering where to buy children's bedding? We've rounded up the Ideal Home team's top recommendations so you can jump straight to the cream of the crop.

When it comes to decor ideas, a childrens room is one of the places that the imagination can really run wild, and bedding can really set the tone for the whole room scheme.

Kids bedding can also be a quick, easy, and affordable way to let your child inject their own personality into their bedroom – and it's a lot easier to swap out when their tastes change than repainting the walls!

Whether you're looking to add the finishing touches to a themed kids room, are after some playful prints or colourful patterns to create a focal point in a small childrens bedroom, or you need practical basics – these are the best places to shop for kids bedding.

If you're anything like us, then M&S is probably one of the first places you head for good quality bed linen that washes well, and has a relatively affordable price point. The brand is a staple for plain sheets and practical bedding like waterproof mattress protectors. The good news is that they also stock plenty of fun kids bed linen, with options for toddlers through to tweens.
