When you’re trying to get a good night’s sleep, it can be difficult to find the right balance between too hot and too cold. Some of us invest unnecessary dollars on winter sheets and summer sheets, fancy heaters, and cooling systems, and yet we don’t get the rest we deserve. So, what’s the solution?
Instead of reaching for the thermostat which can substantially increase your utility costs, consider other alternatives for keeping you warm at night. Here are a few tips to get you started on the right foot.
Get an All-Season Duvet
The best duvets on the market should not need to be swapped out midyear when temperatures change. They should be specially engineered for perfect temperature regulation in winter and summer, so you don’t need to keep an alternative duvet in storage. Search the market for a duvet that enables multi-seasonal use without compromising comfort and durability.
Created to enhance sleep comfort and decrease allergy symptoms, we offer an innovative, lightweight duvet that’s able to maintain warmth and loft during all seasons, so you’ll look forward to getting into bed each night. The secret is our specially engineered 100% hypoallergenic microfiber fill that mimics the heat-insulating properties of natural goose down and the breathability of cotton. This special material not only maintains an ideal sleeping temperature, but also allows the duvet to be 40% lighter and 2x more breathable than cheaper alternatives. Plus, we’ve made it easy to clean and free from irritants and allergens to be safe for you and your loved ones.
Try a Space Heater
Experts agree that 18 degrees Celsius is the ideal temperature for sound sleep, but winter months can make it difficult to maintain without having to turn up the central heating. That’s why we recommend getting a portable space heater which provides instant heat for smaller areas which can be moved around easily and promotes energy savings. Remember to consider the size of your space and read online reviews before you buy.
Buy A Thick Area Rug
Hard flooring such as laminate, tiles, and wood can have its everyday benefits, but staying warm can be difficult. Sourcing a large thick area rug can help to make the environment cozier during the winter months and keep your feet warm when temperatures dip.
Look for Cotton Sheets
There's a reason why luxury hotels around the world only use long-staple cotton. It’s cozy for cold winter nights but breathable for humid summers. Long-staple cotton, has been the gold standard for sheets in every season. Where many brands use shorter fibers with exposed ends, we recommend sourcing sheets with cotton that uses longer fibers with fewer exposed ends. Known as Gossypium barbadense, this unique cotton provides sheets that won’t pill or wear thin, and paired with the best memory foam pillow on the market, will offer an amazing night’s sleep in any season.
Wearing comfortable night clothes such as pajamas can help to regulate body temperature while increasing healthy blood circulation. Natural fibers such as cotton, silk or bamboo that feel soft and silky on the skin are good options to provide warmth and breathability. Also, try to avoid clothing with too many buttons, snaps or tags as they can become problematic at night as they irritate the skin. Lose, comfy bed wear is ideal to promote better slumber.
