A Guide to Having a Comfy Bedroom in Winter
Winter is definitely the season when it is easiest to stay in bed at any given time. The plummeting temperatures coupled with the dark and drizzly outside is enough to encourage anyone to stay under their comforter. If you work from home, you might just have the option to do that. However, if you are someone who needs to leave the house to go out into the real world daily, the least you can do for yourself is to create a setup that you cannot wait to get back to. This piece will offer some great ideas to ensure you have a comfy bedroom this winter.
Plastic Wrap the Windows
There is not much worse than when you are trying to get to sleep or get out of a bed, and a hefty draft makes its way through the cracks and gaps in your windows. Not only is this bad for letting the heat out, but it can also make the bedroom uncomfortable.
If you have a draft problem and need a quick fix, then using plastic wrap over the window works like double glazing, providing a second layer and an additional barrier against the cold. Thermal curtains are a bit thicker and can help to keep the cold out too.
Invest in The Right Bedwear
The bed is the star or the show for the bedroom, and it is crucial that it is comfortable to ensure that the bedroom reaches a cozy five-star rating. There are a couple of things you need to consider to make your bed something that could induce hibernation, some of which include a high-quality mattress that supports the body, some organic bed sheets with quality cotton, and extra pillows and blankets to keep the warmth in. Get your hands on a thicker comforter too that is created for winter, and you are never too old for some cuddly toys too.
Mood Lighting for a Comfy Bedroom
Warm lighting makes such a significant difference to how comfortable and cozy a room feels. It can be difficult to try and relax with cool-toned, fluorescent bright lighting that is designed to help people stay more alert. So, having the right kind of lighting in your bedroom is essential.
Candles are also a great option for making a room feel a little cozier, but if you are worried about a fire hazard, then you can get your hands on some remote-controlled electric candles or even some battery powered ones. These give the same vibe without the smoke or the danger of being knocked over!
Invest in an Electric Blanket
An electric blanket is essential in winter, especially if you want to keep the heating costs down. So, with this in mind, don’t hesitate to get one of your own. You can put them anywhere in the house, but they are particularly great on top of a comforter on those cold nights. Just make sure to check the reviews, so you are purchasing a high-quality electric blanket that is going to last and obtain the perfect comfy bedroom.
