Aldi have announced the launch of two new homeware ranges consisting of bedding, beanbags, mirrors, lighting and more. These items will make up the supermarket’s ‘Specialbuys’ section – aka the middle aisle that’s always filled with those interesting items you didn’t expect to find but are glad to be going home with.

The two collections will launch in consecutive weeks with the‘Summer Tropics’ range available in stores from July 28th (online from July 21st), and the ‘Style Your Room’range taking over stores on August 1st (online from July 28th). However, once the items are gone, they’re gone for good. So, make sure you get your hot date with Aldi in your diaries.

In the meantime, here are our top picks from the two ranges:

Summer Tropics range

Palm print duvet set

Palm print bed sets are still this year’s most popular bedding option, so it’s no surprise Aldi have come out with their own set in their new range. However, this is a palm print with a twist as the bedding can be folded over, or reversed, to reveal a cool green and blue striped pattern.

The duvet set is available in single (£9.99), double (£12.99), king (£14.99) and superking sizes (£16.99) – an absolute summer steal!

Summery cushions

Aldi have 4 new cushion designs (£6.99 each) in the Summer Tropics range, including this mandala patterned pillow which has one blue side and one white side. This means you can buy a few to spruce up your living room or bedroom and alternate the colours depending on what look you’re going for that day. Either way, the blue and white will bring a calming vibe to your home.

Bright fitted sheets

Aldi are offering fitted sheets in a range of pastel colours, including mint, pink and blue, and in a range of sizes (from £3.99 to £6.99). Coloured fitted sheets like these are a great way to accent vibrant duvet covers and top off your bedroom look. The mint is particularly refreshing to look at and goes well with tropical bed set prints.

Style Your Room range

Grid Mirror

This Grid Mirror (£49.99 – online only) is ideal for helping to make spaces feel bigger and brighter, while adding a touch of industrial-chic to your home. Similar models have been spotted for £150, saving Aldi shoppers £100!

Exposed bulb lamp

Speaking of industrial, this exposed bulb lamp (£14.99) will sit well in any living room, bedroom or garden room and is perfect for lighting up those summer evenings.

Bean cube

With Scandi-interiors a firm stylist favourite, embrace hygge at home with Aldi’s chic grey bean cube (£29.99). It’s great as a foot rest or as an extra seat around the coffee table when you’ve got friends over for a summer games night. If grey isn’t your colour, there are 3 other colours and patterns to choose from!
