1. Make sure the temperature is just right with a new duvet

Being too hot or too cold is a common reason for sleep struggles. As the seasons change this can be all the more difficult when night time temperatures can fluctuate by 10 degrees or more. The right duvet – one that is warm but breathable – is the best place to start. Look for an all seasons option. These are made up of two parts popped together for the coldest nights or used separately for warmer weather and the shoulder seasons.

Argos Home Supersoft Washable All Seasons Duvet, Double

Argos Home Supersoft Washable All Seasons Duvet, Double | £32 on Argos

This is a great price for what is basically three duvets. There is a 4.5 tog for summer, a 9 tog for autumn and spring, then use the corner poppers to join them together for a 13.5 tog winter duvet. They can be machine washed and tumble dried, too

2. Maximise comfort with a mattress topper

If your mattress isn't offering max comfort you should really buy a new one (Argos have a 100 day trial on mattresses by the way), but if that is out of budget, a mattress topper can help. There are loads of mattress toppers under £50, but if you can stretch to a bit more you are likely to get better support – great for mitigating back or hip pain while lying down. We have shared a couple of options below (included a bargain-friendly one).

Argos Feels Like Down Mattress Topper, Double

Argos Feels Like Down Mattress Topper, Double | £35 on Argos

As the name suggests this synthetic, 3cm thick topper feels as soft as down. It is anti-allergy though so great if you can't have (or don't want) real feather down. 

Argos Home Duck Feather Mattress Topper, double

Argos Home Duck Feather Mattress Topper, double | £60 on Argos

For luxury levels of comfort, try this 5cm thick duck down mattress topper. It is available in all sizes up to super king and while you can't machine wash it, it can be tumble dried. As well as offering padding, the down is great for regulating heat in the colder months – a cosy buy for sure.

3. Plump it up with new pillows

The wrong pillow means a whole world of neck pain and definitely won't help you nod off. Choose the right pillow for your sleeping position for a start – front sleepers need something softer and thinner, but if you sleep on your side you need a bit more thickness. Those who sleep on their back should look for a firmer pillow, but it should still be super soft to the touch.

Don't forget that a pillow you can wash is a great buy if you get a bit sweaty on warmer nights. Some love down fillings, but we are big fans of synthetic non-allergenic pillows that keep their shape and can be cleaned more easily.

Forty Winks Supremely Soft Wash Medium Pillow - 2 Pack

Forty Winks Supremely Soft Wash Medium Pillow – 2 Pack | £12 on Argos

These pillows have machine washable covers to protect the filling and for just £12 we think they are a great buy. Designed for back sleepers, they are firm, yet yielding and made from non-allergenic polyester.

4. Give your bedroom a hotel-worthy makeover with a new duvet set

Sure, comfort is king, but creating a space that looks the part is so important. Fortunately you can have the best of both worlds and we have found some stylish and cosy bedding to update your bedroom. Whether you want pristine white bedding that wouldn't look out of place in a boutique hotel, or something to give your room all the hygge vibes, we think you will like the choices below.

Argos Home Hadley White Pintuck Bedding Set – Double

Argos Home Hadley White Pintuck Bedding Set – Double | £35 on Argos

This bedding set offers such a high end look for a very wallet-friendly price. It comes in white for that bright and light refresh, but you can get it in stylish grey or blush pink too. A 200 thread count makes it super snuggly and it doesn't need to be ironed – yes, more time in bed for you.

Argos Home Arctic Faux Fur Bedding Set – Double

Argos Home Arctic Faux Fur Bedding Set – Double | £30 on Argos

Drift off to dreams that you are sleeping in a ski chalet with this super plush faux fur bedding. So cosy you will want to lie on it as well as under it and don't worry, it is still machine washable and suitable for tumble drying.

5. And don't forget a bedding upgrade for the little ones

As any parent knows, if the kids don't sleep, you don't sleep. So don't forget them when it comes to buying new bedding. Argos has loads of fun options with all their favourite characters, but we think buying something a little more sedate is a great choice too for a calm and relaxed bed time. 

Argos Home Unicorn Fleece Bedding Set – Single

Argos Home Unicorn Fleece Bedding Set – Single | £25 on Argos

Fun and functional, kids of all ages will love this unicorn bedding set – even the teens. Made from fleece it is irresistibly comfy and they definitely won't be waking you to complain that they are chilly. It is easy care too, both washing machine and tumble dryer friendly.
