What to consider when buying bedding for your B&B…
To improve customer satisfaction, increase efficiency and keep costs down, there are many things to consider before purchasing bedding for your bed and breakfast.
Here’s what to keep in mind when browsing bed linen for your establishment:
- Aesthetic – The way your B&B looks plays a huge role in the guest experience. First impressions are incredibly important, so it’s best to stick with plain neutral colours for bedding. Bright colours or garish patterns could throw the whole room off and distract from the other stylish décor on display.
- Comfort – Of course, the most important thing to consider when choosing your bed linen. Think of it this way, your guests will be much happier and easier to deal with if they’ve had a great night’s sleep in a super comfortable bed!
- Durability – It’s no good having beautiful bedding that is ultra-comfortable but has to be replaced every 6 months. Especially as B&B goes through plenty of usage and washing, it’s important to choose a strong fabric that can stand the test of time.
- Care instructions – Imagine your bulk order of sheets arriving at your front door to discover the label says ‘hand wash only’… noooo! Don’t waste your time and money by forgetting to check the care instructions. Machine washable and tumble dryer suitable are what you should be looking for.
- Price – Enough about improving the guest experience, we need to consider your requirements too! As a small business owner, the price is also a big factor to consider. You don’t want to get the cheapest bedding possible, as this will most likely be low quality. But you do want to find a wholesaler that offers deals and great value for money.
So, what are the best products? Here’s our recommendations…
What duvet should I buy for my B&B?
With each guest being so different, how on earth are you going to please each one and provide them the perfect duvet?
With an all seasons duvet, that’s how.
All seasons is a magical invention that consists of two duvets in one. They are joined together by plastic poppers, which allows you or your guests to easily remove a layer when they get too warm and add one back on if they get too cold… perfect!
Why this duvet?
- Feather and down is warm, soft and cosy
- Outer layer is 100% high quality cotton
- 5 and 4.5 tog duvets joined together with plastic poppers for easy adjustment
- Machine washable
- Great value for money for a premium feel
This All Seasons Goose Feather and Down 15 tog duvet is a simple way to add a touch of luxury to your B&B. You’ll be shocked at the softness and comfort of feather and down – and so will your guests.
Feather and down is soft, plump, airy and provides the perfect amount of weight to make you feel nice and cosy.
Goose feather is considered higher quality than duck as the clusters are bigger, meaning less are needed to fill the duvet. This creates a lighter and airier duvet, but this is down to personal preference as to whether it’s an advantage.
What pillows should I buy for my B&B?
Ah, the star of the show.
This is what your guests will sink their heads into after a long weary day (I don’t know why I’m explaining to you what a pillow is).
It’s important, and like our friend the duvet, it can be difficult to please everyone. Here’s why the Soft as Down Microfibre Pillow is a real crowd pleaser…
Why this pillow?
- We had to name it ‘Soft as Down’ as it really is as soft as down!
- Filled with high quality microfibre which is soft, light, plump and fluffy
- It’s made with strong material that is very durable
- It is resistant to wrinkles, mould, stretching, shrinking and most stains
- It is fantastic value for money
- The fibres are light and breathable
- It is machine washable, tumble dryer suitable and easy to maintain
Give your guests the gift of a great night’s sleep with this affordable option that feels just like high end down.
Down is the extra fluffy layer that sits under the outer feathers of a duck and goose, providing warmth and comfort. Although this is an ideal option for luxurious B&Bs and guest houses, we also wanted to provide a more affordable option to cater for those with a tighter budget.
Don’t give your guests any excuse to complain about a hard and lumpy pillow by providing something inadequate.
Latex, memory foam or feather pillows can be a favourite for some, although it is best to go for something consistent and more widely appreciated when purchasing for a B&B.
What bed sheets should I use for my B&B?
The bed sheets and linen is what surrounds your guest when sleeping at night. They have the most contact with your guests, so a lot of thought needs to be put in before purchasing.

Why these sheets?
- The 200 thread count is soft, luxurious and highly durable
- Machine washable and tumble dryer suitable
- Easy to care for and maintain
- Luxury hotel quality
- High quality 100% cotton
The most important things to consider are thread count and material.
Thread count is the number of threads that run horizontally and vertically through fabric per square inch. Its purpose is to give you an indication to the softness and quality of a fabric.
The higher the thread count, the more luxurious it is believed to be. However, be careful as fabrics with thread counts that are too high will not be as durable or wear as well.
For your B&B you’re looking for durability and comfort, so 200 is an ideal number to aim for.
