Invest in Wool
In case you missed it, here at The British Blanket Company we love wool! Wool is such fantastic natural material and it's environmentally friendly, too. As well as wool blankets, you could invest in a wool duvet to truly create a luxurious nights sleep. Owning a wool duvet will keep you warm when you're cold and removes excess heat when your body starts to warm. Our XL Throws are perfect for draping across your kingsize bed and comes in a variety of colours too. Any of our XL Throws are perfect to give your bedroom that extra dose of interior style instantly.

Add Plants for Oxygen
Okay, so this might not be for your kingsize bed exactly, but having plants in the bedroom is good for your health. Not only are they beautiful, plants do the opposite of what we do when we breathe: release oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide. This means plants help to purify the air and eliminate harmful toxins. Recent research by NASA has revealed that houseplants can remove up to 87% of air toxins in 24 hours!
Additional studies have also proven that indoor plants improve concentration and productivity, lower stress levels and boost your mood — making them perfect addition to your bedroom.
