10 Best Ways to Make Your Bed Warm and Cozy For Winter

It’s that time of the year again! After coming home from an exhausting day at work and walking into your home from the numbing temperatures outside, you just want to take a hot shower and crawl into your bed. There is nothing more unsatisfying than getting into a messy bed, especially one that is cold and takes a few minutes to “warm up.” 

The good news is, it’s a lot easier to warm up your bed than it is to cool it off. With the help of the right layers to keep in your natural body heat, your bed can become the warm and comfy place you dream of crawling into!

Did you know, the average American will spend 36 years in bed over the course of their lifetime? In the winter and colder seasons, it’s not uncommon for people to sleep more. The cold temperatures can be miserable, and a day cozied up in bed sounds much better. Colder temperatures also bring colds and the flu season around, so we find ourselves in bed more. Overall, sleep is just as important as a healthy diet and exercise! That is why it is so important to have a warm and cozy bed, especially during the winter.

Sleep experts say the best sleep comes from a bedroom temperature that is between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit. When the temperatures drop low, it is all right to turn your heat on. Always remember, layers of your bed can easily be removed.

  • Create Layers

Have you ever wondered what makes luxury hotel beds so different from any other bed? The secret is all in the layering. Hotel rooms are generally cooler than normal rooms, yet you are instantly warm and cozy the second you crawl into the bed. You might be thinking “Why can’t my bed feel like this?” Well, it can! You may or may have not noticed, but hotels typically use three layers of sheets when they make a bed.

 

We recommend starting with your Bed Scrunchie, to keep the base of your sheets in place, putting on not one, but two top sheets and then your comforter. Give this layering a try and you’ll notice more heat being kept in.

 

  • Choose a Warmer Comforter

 

The comforter is a big part of the design of our room, so most people pay more attention to the appearance rather than the material. If you are guilty of this and notice you’re chilly in bed sometimes, you may want to take a look at the material of your comforter. Feathers and wool are the most effective materials to trap in heat. If you are not a fan of animal material, hollow fiber is another good option.

 

  • Choose Warmer Materials

 

What do you look for when choosing new sheets? If the cheapest option is your priority, it’s no wonder that your bed isn’t as comfortable as you want it to be! You can easily notice the difference between high quality sheets and those that are more affordable but of lesser quality. We can guarantee that once you make your bed with Egyptian cotton sheets, you will never want to leave. If you’re looking for some fantastic sheets that are one-of-a-kind we recommend these Egyptian Cotton Sheets.

 

  • Try Heated Bedding

 

Sometimes, there are not enough sheets, blankets and comforters in the world to warm up a cold-natured individual. That is why we are so thankful for heated bedding that speeds up the process! Most people can warm themselves up with their own body heat, but for those that can’t…we recommend looking into heated bedding. All you do is plug in the blanket, and you’ve got instant heat! If you’re about to climb into bed, try turning on the blanket before you get in. That way, the bed is already warm.

 

  • Turn on the Fan

 

This may seem contradictory considering fans are known to blow cold air. However, fans can also circulate warm air. If you have a heater on, turning the fan on can help get that warm air moving all throughout your room.

 

  • Use a Throw

Throw blankets are known for decorating but c’mon…. Can you really turn down an ultra-soft throw when you need something warm and cozy? It’s a good idea to have more than one, plus they look great too!

 

  • Wear a Robe

 

Robes are something else that can give us that luxury feeling of being in a high end hotel. There is something different about the spa robes these places offer and the robes that you find in most stores. They are not made equal. While a silk robe is great, it’s not if you’re looking to be warm and cozy. To enhance the comfort of your bedroom, try wearing a Turkish cotton robe. They’re great for keeping you warm after a shower or while getting ready for bed.

 

  • Snuggle

 

Last but certainly not least, snuggle up to your partner! Or, if you have a furry friend, they make great cuddle buddies, too. Snuggling up is a way to insulate your combined body heat. When you cuddle up, less body heat will escape, keeping you warm all night long.

 

We understand how important a good night’s sleep is. For every hour of sleep lost, our daytime productivity can decrease by 25 percent. A big part of a good night’s sleep is the comfort of your bed, and how can you sleep if you are not comfortable? This all starts with how you make your bed.

 

If you are starting to get your home ready for the upcoming winter season, don’t forget about your bed. A cozy bed needs a good foundation, so if you notice your sheets are not fitting correctly, it’s time to give the Bed Scrunchie a try. The holder and extender clips to the edges of your bed sheet and slides under the mattress effortlessly (no lifting required) to give you that hotel-bed luxury experience that we all day dream about.
