Ways to Keep Your Bed Warm in Winter

Great Ways to keep your bed warm in Winter from Rekhas House of Cotton

If you’re a natural-born shiverer in the bleak midwinter, the good news is that it’s much easier to warm your bed at night than it is to cool it in the summer. For starters, your own body is a natural radiator. While that can be a problem in warm weather, it’s a key part of the solution when the outside world freezes over.
However, it takes time to warm your bed that way, and nobody likes climbing between icy sheets when they’re supposed to be relaxing at the end of a long day. So if you live in a particularly cold area, it might help to use a bed heating system, as well as the right winter bedding, Get the perfect bedding suitable to keep your bady warm in these cozy winter with Rekhas House of Cotton.
Let’s take a look at some options from Rekhas House of Cotton, So you have for warming your bed and bedroom. Some are free, some cost money, and others just require some adjustments to the way you have the bedroom set up.

1. Use flannel bedsheets in the winter

Flannel is a great choice of material for bedsheets in the winter. Flannel is cotton that’s been brushed to make it fluffy, rather than smooth like normal cotton sheets. All that extras fluffiness means more air is trapped, which makes it a better insulator.

2. Create layers of top sheets and blankets

Rather than just using one thick blanket, comforter or duvet, create layers instead. The idea is to create layers of insulation and trap air (which is a poor conductor of heat).

Layers also work well because you can remove them if you get too warm in the night. Try alternating between thinner and thicker layers to maximize the insulation effect.

If you don’t have the money to pay for expensive bed heating systems or luxury bedding, adding layers of any material can help enormously.

3. Choose a warmer comforter or duvet filling

If you don’t mind using animal products, the warmest filling for comforters and duvets is down and/or feathers. Another effective filler is wool, which traps air very effectively, while still being more breathable than synthetic fillings. If you’d prefer to avoid animal-based fillings, hollow fiber is a good choice of warm material.

4. Choose warmer blanket materials

If you use a blanket, the warmest materials are wool and cotton fleece. The fibers of these materials are curlier, which creates air pockets that trap your body heat better than flat synthetic fibers.

There are many choices of wool, with sheep and lamb wool being the most common. And if you want the very warmest possible, try a blanket made from Merino, Cashmere, Alpaca, Yak, or Qiviut.

5. Use heated bedding

Although it’s possible to warm your bed using just your body and bedding, for some people it still might not be enough. And if you deplore getting into a cold bed, perhaps it’s time to warm it up before you settle down for the night.

The main choices of heated bedding are heated mattress pads or electric blankets. Mattress pads have the benefit of heating from underneath you, so warm the bed more efficiently.

However, electric blankets might suit some people better. They are a good choice if you don’t want wires beneath you, or find you get too hot when the heat is trapped between the bed and your body.

6. Blow some warm air between the sheets

An effective alternative to heated bedding is a climate control system called the BedJet. My partner and I have used one for a couple of years, and are big fans (pun intended!)

It works by warming air over a ceramic stone in a separate unit, and then blowing that warm air between your sheets and over your body.

It’s fast, effective, and has a wide range of temperature settings and features that allow you to warm your bed to the exact temperature you enjoy.

7. Wear warm pajamas

Continuing with the theme of creating insulation for your body heat, try wearing some warm flannel pajamas. They also make getting out of bed in the night a slightly less shivery experience.

8. Cuddle up to a hot water bottle

Another way to introduce an extra source of warmth is with a simple hot water bottle.

Fill it with hot water (not boiling though), and place it in your bed before you get in. You can then cuddle up to it, or use it to keep your feet warmer for the first half of the night.

9. Snuggle up to your partner (or your dog)

Finally, one you probably already know if you sleep with a partner. Snuggling up together is a great way to insulate your combined body heat, ensuring you keep even more of it from escaping.

And following a couple of comments from readers, the dog idea has finally made it onto the list. Speaking from experience, it’s amazing how much heat even relatively small dogs emit. They are furry hot water bottles with legs! Just don’t expect them to keep you cool in the summer once they’ve gotten used to the luxury of sleeping in the human bed…
