What are some of the signs of quality to look for in sheets? Price is not an indicator of quality – it’s what the sheets are made from that’s important. Long-staple cotton is generally considered the best. It gives sheets strength and longevity, and means they’ll last for years.You should also do the ‘touch test’ and assess how sheets feel in your hand. Although this won’t tell you about a sheet’s quality, it will help you decide if the weave and weight are appealing. Linen sheets, by default, will feel more textured, but over time and with laundering they will become softer.Tip: When it comes to sheets, maintenance is just as important a consideration as softness. If you wash and dry your bedlinen in a machine, make sure the sheets can handle it.

Freshen up with purifying plantsSome plants work harder than others when it comes to improving our health, so if you’re looking to green up your bedroom, an air purifier is a clever choice. A peace lily (Spathiphyllum), aloe vera or spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum) will not only make an attractive addition to your sanctuary, it will also help to filter pollutants from the air. Have fun with the pot and choose a style that complements your decor – rattan, copper and concrete are stylish indoor options.
3. Greenery is a natural air filterPlants indoors invite a piece of the outside world in, and might even remind you to unplug and get back to nature on those chilly Sunday mornings spent reading a book in bed. Jaana Bithell, an interior designer at Grieve Gillett Dimitty Andersen Architects, recommends speaking to a plant expert to help you choose a plant that will thrive indoors with minimal effort.“I love greenery in the bedroom, I think it is calming. Fish tanks are weirdly calming, too, but they can be noisy. I’ve never heard a plant scream so they’d be my choice! Try mother-in-law’s tongue (Sansevieria trifasciata), which is particularly hardy indoors!”
