There is nothing more inviting in winters than a warm, cosy bed and a cup of hot chocolate, coffee or tea.
Just imagine coming home from outside cold and there it is, your bed, tempting you to get in with a cup of hot coffee and just settle for the rest of the damn day. Although we make many arrangements for a warm winter, nothing beats a nicely prepared winter bed.
Won't a thick blanket be enough?
No. If you think your bed is winter-ready just with a thick blanket or comforter, then you have been missing out on these winter bedding essentials. But not anymore. Check out these winter bedding essentials that will help you beat the cold, along with other tips.
Choose the perfect quilt
A perfect quilt is absolutely the very first and most important thing you need for a warm winter. Also, you need to choose the perfect quilt.
You can choose between wool and down quilts. If you like light weighing quilt, you should go for down quilts. If you are someone who loves heavy quilts in winters, you should go for woollen ones.
If you choose wool, it’s gonna work for both winters and sometimes summer because it keeps you warm in winters and cool in summers. If you choose down quilt, it’s gonna be lightweight and warm at the same time.
You can check out different quilts and comforters offered by COSEE to help your winter bedding collection.
Use warmer bed sheets
Now if you are someone who likes to use linen bedsheets, it’s no problem. Linens are actually a pretty good choice for both summers and winters because they are a natural material. It lets your skin breathe and helps regulate body temperature.
But if you are looking for something especially warmer for winters, you should go for flannelette sheets. Flannel bed sheets are not only soft and warm but also inexpensive. Flannel bed sheets are a favoured winter update for most people.
You can also go for bed sheets with higher thread counts which will not only keep you warm but also look luxurious and beautiful. Check out these Cosee Bedsheets to choose from a variety of bedsheets and other bedding essentials.
Tackling the duvet
Again, a decent investment for both winters and summers, but especially useful in winters. A good quality temperature regulating duvet insert will help you stay warm in winters by trapping body heat.
That being said, if you are going to invest in a duvet altogether, make sure you check the tog. Tog is the universal unit used to measure the warmth of a duvet. As the tog rating gets better, the duvet gets warmer.
Add extra layers
Nothing beats the cold as good as extra layers. Multiple thin layers do a better job at insulating heat than a single thick layer can do.
That’s not to say you should choose thin extra layers and not thick ones. The simple thing is, if you want more warmth, you need to add more layers and that will work better than anything else.
Moreover, if you are sharing your bed, getting the temperature just right for both people can get tough. Adding layers can do the trick here.
Extra bedroom changes for winters
Needless to say, bedding essentials will definitely help you beat the cold in bed, but what about the room itself? Wouldn’t it be hard to get into an extra warm bed and then get out into an extra cold air outside your blanket?
Making little changes in your bedroom settings will help regulate the temperature of the room and you won’t rush to turn on the heater as soon as you get out of the bed.
Best place to start is taking care of windows and doors - keep them closed all the time. And also make sure you have closed the curtains so that no air from outside gets in even through a crack of space.
Apart from this, add a rug or a soft, warm mat on the floor. Also, if you will, lighting a few candles or fire lamps inside will give an illusion of warmth and make your room look extra cosy for winters. So go ahead and make your room a warm sanctuary for yourself and your family!
