UK IKEA bedding at a glance
The bedding you choose is not just important for the look of your room - it actually has an impact on your sleep quality.
Good bedding should look and feel great.
Choosing the right bed linen, duvets, and pillows can help you have a good night’s sleep in style. 💤
In contrast, the wrong bedding can leave you feeling too hot or cold, itchy, and uncomfortable.
In the UK, IKEA offers a wide range of bedding options and accessories to suit different budgets and styles.
They are also constantly bringing out new products. 🆕
IKEA carries bedding for adults, children and babies, and the range includes bed linen, duvet covers, pillows, duvets, bedspreads, mattress protectors, and pillow protectors.
Let’s look at some of these in more detail. 🔎
IKEA duvet covers
IKEA offers a huge range of duvet covers.
IKEA duvets are sold in sets with two pillow cases.
Each type of IKEA duvet cover also comes in a wide range of colours and patterns. 🌈
They have plaid duvets, paisley duvets, floral duvets and polka dot duvets, among many others.
Like IKEA bed sheets, IKEA duvet covers come in different fabric options, including cotton, cotton blends, linen, and lyocell.
They also come in a range of price points.
Let’s take a deeper look at our favourite IKEA quilt covers.

As with linen, there are some things you should pay attention to when choosing the right duvet cover.
What to look for in a duvet cover
The most important thing to consider for your duvet cover is size.
Your duvet cover should always match the size of your duvet. 📏
IKEA offers single duvet covers, double duvet covers, king size duvet covers, and super king duvet covers across most products.
Duvet covers often come in sets with pillowcases so you can create a consistent feel for your room. 🛏️
To create a cosy and comfortable sleeping space, match your duvet cover to the atmosphere you want.
Some duvet covers are better for certain seasons, particularly if they are very light or very heavy. 😎
This is because your duvet cover adds an extra layer of warmth on top of your duvet.
So, consider the weight of your duvet and what temperature you want to achieve when looking for a duvet cover. 🌡️
UK duvet cover alternatives
One of the main benefits of buying an IKEA duvet cover is the huge range available. 🙌
With 24 different options and a large variety of colours and patterns on top of that, there is something to suit everyone’s taste.
But if you are looking for a more neutral duvet cover, you can find some great options from premium brands as well. 🤔
You may be surprised by how similar the prices are to IKEA’s high-end offering.
Panda London, for example, sells bamboo bedding sets (with fitted sheets, pillowcases, and duvet covers) and stand-alone duvet cover sets. 🎋
Today, a duvet is an essential part of any bed setup. 🛏️
Unlike blankets, which are often thin and heavy, duvets are light and fluffy.
They allow you to move more freely. 🤸♀️
Duvets typically consist of a soft outer shell and an inner filling of down, feathers, bamboo, or synthetic materials.
IKEA’s range of duvets
IKEA carries duvets in a range of warmth ratings and fillings.
We’ll look at warmth ratings in more detail further down. 👇
IKEA also carries weighted blankets, which are great for relaxation and can help with anxiety.
Weighted blankets give a ‘hugging’ feeling like you are being held and comforted. 🤗
In addition to weighted blankets, IKEA also has wool duvets, feather duvets, and synthetic duvets.
We’ve compared our favourite IKEA duvets in the table below (arranged from the lowest-priced option to the most expensive IKEA duvet):
|Material||Filling||Tog||What we like|
|Stjarnbracka||Lyocell/cotton blend||Recycled Polyester||7.5||Machine-washable, even temperature distribution, environmentally friendly|
|Grusstar||Lyocell/cotton blend||Polyester/Viscose blend||2.5||Machine-washable, cooling|
|Rodkorvel||Cotton||Wool||7||Machine-washable, naturally odour resistant, soft|
|Fjallhavre||Cotton||90% duck down, 10% duck feathers||4 or 7.5||Machine-washable, luxurious, box stitch keeps filling in place|
There are some key aspects to consider before choosing the perfect duvet.
How to choose the right duvet
Choosing the right duvet depends on your room temperature as well as the duvet's weight, materials, and size.
When looking for a duvet, it is useful to consider the tog rating. 🌡
The tog rating refers to the warmth or thermal resistance of a duvet.
It measures the ability of a duvet (without a cover) to trap air. 🌬️
Typically, your bedroom temperature will be influenced by the seasons. 🌤️
- If your room is cooler (below 18°C), you'll need to opt for a warmer duvet.
- If your room is warmer (above 22°C), you should be fine with a lighter duvet.
Choosing a duvet with the right tog rating will help you sleep better.
Material type is another important part of selecting the right duvet.
IKEA has synthetic duvets, wool duvets, and feather duvets.
Since material plays such an important part, let's look at this in more detail. 🕵️♀️
Types of IKEA duvets
Here is a closer look at the different duvet materials IKEA offers.
IKEA synthetic duvets
IKEA offers 28 different synthetic duvets, which come in an extremely wide range of prices.
They cover the full spectrum of warmth ratings, so there is something to suit all seasons.
Synthetic duvets aren't as insulating as natural duvets, so you'll often need heavier weights for the same warmth. 🏋️
They're also not as breathable as natural duvets, so you could feel hot and clammy if you're a heavy sweater.
On the plus side, synthetic duvets are hypoallergenic.
They can also easily be cleaned in the washing machine and dried in a tumble drier. 🛀
This makes them a great choice for people prone to allergies.
IKEA wool duvets
Wool is a less common material for duvets, so it makes sense that IKEA offers just one wool-filled duvet, the Rodkorvel.
The wool filling is soft and fluffy.
Wool also creates an evenly distributed sleeping temperature. 🌡️
Wool is naturally odour-resistant, so a wool duvet will stay fresh for a long time.
IKEA feather duvets
Down and feather are popular filling materials for duvets.
The more down, the softer, warmer and lighter the duvet will be. ☁️
Feathers in the filling help to draw away moisture to keep you dry at the night.
All IKEA down and feather duvets are machine-washable.
Down and feather duvets are more expensive than synthetic alternatives. 💰
They can also cause problems for allergy sufferers.
UK duvet alternatives
IKEA duvets may be well-priced, but they aren’t the highest quality. 😕
We’d recommend you check out some of our favourite UK alternative duvets instead.

IKEA baby and children’s bedding
IKEA offers a range of bedding for babies and children. 👶
IKEA children’s bedding products include bed linen, duvet covers, duvets, pillows, and mattress protectors.
IKEA children’s bed linen is made from 100% sustainable cotton.
They come in a wide range of patterns and different colours. 🌈
IKEA offers good value for children’s bedding, which may need to be replaced frequently as they grow.
When shopping for bedding for babies and children, it is important to keep safety in mind. 🦺
Most experts recommend babies sleep without duvets, blankets or pillows until they are 2 years old.
Most children will be comfortable with a lighter-weight duvet of about 4.5 togs.
This is because children are smaller and duvets can trap more air, making them feel warmer overall.
In general, children above the age of 6 can comfortably use adult duvets with lower tog ratings. 🧒
Children sleeping in cots should use smaller duvets specifically designed for cot beds.
