Bedstar’s guide to keeping warm through the winter monthsWhether you’re stocking up on the bedsheets and throws, contemplating a thicker winter duvet, or a brand new mattress altogether, we’re going to fill you in with everything you need to know to keep warm during winter.
Take advantage of bedsheets and throwsBy simply adding a bedsheet or throw to your current set-up, you can try and maintain the body-generated heat that keeps you warm at night. The advantage here is that depending on how cold it is, you can add or take away sheets to find the perfect balance. Unfortunately adding two, or even three sheets to your bed can add a lot of weight, which may result in an uncomfortable sleeping experience. On the other hand though, adding sheets is much cheaper than keeping the heating on overnight, so if you are looking for a cheap, cost-effective way of staying warm, go for sheets.
Mattresses toppers work wondersHeat doesn’t just escape through your duvet – it also escapes through your mattress. There are some that combat this, such as latex mattresses, but other struggle to maintain heat for long periods of time. One way to create a further barrier for heat to escape is by purchasing a mattress topper, which reduces the speed leaves your bubble. At around £109, they might seem like an expensive investment at first, but while they’ll keep you somewhat warmer, you’ll also be much more comfortable. Two birds with one stone, or so they say, and one could be with you the very next day with Bedstar!
Opt for a brand new dual season mattressIf you are looking for a permanent solution to the winter blues, and are willing to put the investment in, then a dual season mattress is the perfect option. Thicker on one side than the other – generally cotton on one side and chunky reflex or memory foam on the other – one absorbs heat while the other releases it. Starting off around £250 for a single, these mattresses are a hearty investment, so shouldn’t be considered lightly. It could be your saving grace come winter though.
Switch up your duvet completelyFinally, our last piece of advice – go up a tog or two in winter and you’ll soon be sleeping like a baby. While it might not seem like such a huge jump now, you’ll soon realise the difference come January. Of course, if you don’t want two duvets, you always have the option of a dual-season duvet, which comes in two halves. Simply button up the two duvets through winter, and when summer comes along rip them apart again. So, a few tips to keep you warm over winter. We know, it’s sad to see summer go, but there’s something special about getting into your warm and cosy bed at night. Take heed of the above and you’ll be warm and toasty through the darker months.
