As the seasons change and the weather begins to get a bit colder, it’s time to start thinking about changing up your bedding for something a little cozier.
But with so many choices available, how do you create a bed that’s not only warm and toasty, but also seasonally stylish? Read on for some of our best tips for creating a comfortable and well-styled bed for winter!
Layers of warmth
When it comes to creating a well-styled bed for winter, one of the most important things to remember is how to layer warmth and style, to create a look that’s well put together and cozy.
To begin, you’re going to want to choose some sheets that are reliably warm and toasty. Luckily, when it comes to colder weather, there’s one fabric that shines above all: flannel. Napped on both sides for superior insulating warmth, it’s the perfect pick for winter, and the reason why it remains a perennial classic to this day.
To create a styled look for your bedroom, try coordinating your flannel sheets with a matching duvet cover, pillowcases and shams. You can also look for embroidered sheets that complement the rest of your look as well.
With a variety of designs and prints, it’s really up to you!
Make a “blanket statement”
For your next layer of warmth, try selecting a blanket made from 100% wool for naturally temperature regulating comfort that’s perfect for any time of year. Whether you happen to live in an area that’s a bit more temperate, or a colder climate, you can’t beat the natural softness and feel of a wool blanket.
For a casual accompaniment to your bed, you could also check out a smaller lightweight Mohair wool throw as well, perfect for reading in bed or lounging anywhere.
When it comes to the winter, you can really never have enough blankets on hand!
Choose ultimate cold weather comfort
Last but not least, you’re going to want to make sure you pick a well-crafted comforter for the top of your bed.
For the utmost warmth and luxury, you can’t beat the loft and warmth of genuine goose down, or duck down, but for those looking for an alternative, you can always pick up a synthetic variety as well.
In the need for a little extra warmth? A heated mattress pad may be just the thing you need to stay cozy throughout the night.
By adjusting the temperature of your bed to your own desired comfort, you’re sure to stay warm throughout the entire winter.
Even if you don’t live in sub-arctic temperatures like many of us in the Northeast, a comfortable bed is essential year-round.
