s the temperatures drop, your bedroom becomes a more inviting place to snuggle up and stay warm. Warm bedding, a comfortable mattress, and a relaxing sleep environment are especially important during the winter.
First, consider your bedroom environment. If you’re in an old building, your bedroom may be cold and drafty, and may not have modern forced air. Consider how you can make the overall room warmer.
You can improve draftness by replacing single glazing window with double glazing. A simple step but can really change the room temperature. Textiles can make a difference as well. Consider thick, heavy curtains that you can close at night to help retain heat. However, open them during the day so that you can let any available sunlight in to help warm the room. Adding a thick, woolly rug can help retain heat, and stepping on a rug right out of bed can help you avoid the shock of going straight from your bed to a cold floor.
Another major consideration for winter bedroom warmth is your mattress and bedding. Some mattresses simply sleep warmer than others. For example, innerspring mattresses tend to sleep cooler, because they have more air flow. A memory foam mattress is more likely to retain body heat, which can help you stay warm at night. A memory foam mattress topper can be added to warm up a mattress that’s made of a different material.
Bedding should be changed out for the season to match the colder temperatures. Thin, cool sheets from the summer should be swapped out for heavier, warmer bedding. Look for fleece or flannel sheets, which can offer softness and retention of body heat. These sheets are snuggly at night and can help you stay warm. Fleece is hypoallergenic, so it’s a good choice if you have allergies.
Your covers should be upgraded to a heavier material. Look for a cover that offers the most warmth, such as a down or down alternative comforter or duvet insert. If that’s not enough, you can add a warm blanket that goes underneath your quilt or comforter.
Choose sleepwear that can help you retain body heat as well. Like sheets, fleece and flannel bedclothes are a good choice for warmth and comfort. Keep a pair of slippers next to your bed, so you can step into warmth instead of onto a cold floor.
