And so to bed…

March is National Bed Month – did you know that? And with weather like we’ve had recently, it’s probably our favourite place to be right now, all cosied up under the covers!

National Bed Month is a long-standing awareness campaign from The Sleep Council UK, who provide the nation with tips on healthy and happy sleep.

Did you know, according to a recent Sleep Council report, that a third of the population  – 33% –  now get by on five to six hours sleep a night compared to 27% in 2010. And the majority of people  – 70% –  sleep for seven hours or less. Almost half of Britons say that stress or worry keeps them awake at night.
Bed should be a glorious relax to the end of a hard day – so we think there are a few ways you can make it even more enjoyable – making your bed the most comfortable and pretty it can be, for one.

And March being National Bed Month is as good an excuse as any to indulge in some gorgeous new bedding, and maybe some nightwear too?

BHS has a brilliant range of bedding new in this spring, for all bedroom styles, from fresh and traditional, to vintage styled, to urban chic.

Their Urban Abode range has everything you need (except the bare brick wall!) to turn your bedroom into a cool, downtown loft-style space.
