The Mattress Warehouse: How to Layer Your Bed For The Colder Seasons
Are you enjoying the winter chill yet? The coldest season is just about starting, so if you’re not yet ready to embrace the cold, we suggest you create a comfy, warm space indoors. Now is the time to layer your bed like a professional and keep the warmth where you need it most.
It’s all in the sheets
Start with great winter sheets that retain heat and will keep you warmer for longer. Say goodbye to those cotton summer sheets and embrace layered sheeting which is perfect for the cooler months ahead. Top tip – check out the thread count of your sheets. Thread count refers to the number of horizontal and vertical threads per square inch. Generally, the higher the thread count, the softer and more luxurious the sheet, and the more likely it will wear well.
Change out your duvet
Summer duvets are usually thinner and ideal for warmer, moderate evening temperatures. However, when temperatures drop in those winter midnight hours, you will certainly gain a new appreciation for a winter duvet. Our recommendation – Linenhouse provides a wide selection of quality duvet inners and their range of Exceed™ duvets also comes with the promise to retain its shape and loft, with its cotton outer and polyester fill. Conveniently providing a superior level of weightless warmth, the Exceed™ Duvet Inner is a great product to spend time lounging in – available from Mattress Warehouse.
As a guide, check out the tog rating of your duvet to find out which seasons it would work best in. The higher the tog rating, the warmer the duvet, with 2.5 – 7 tog perfect for spring and summer and 10.5 – 13.5 ideal for autumn and winter. The higher the tog, the better your duvet will be at trapping air and staying warmer for longer. If you want flexibility and versatility, all-season duvets are also a great choice.
Layer a stylish quilt or blanket
Next, add a quilt or textured blanket to your winter bed for extra warmth and style. This is a great addition if you’re quickly looking for added warmth and something you can quickly reach for when temperatures drop at night.
Layer your pillows
For added comfort during the cooler months, layer your pillows. Accent pillows or scatters are also great for a pop of colour and style on your bed.
