Winter is in full swing and temperatures are rapidly dropping. Each day is growing colder and colder and more layers are starting to hit your mattress. We all anticipate hopping into a toasty and warm bed at the completion of our day. Dressing our beds for the changing seasons can feel like a tedious task but a properly made bed is important to a good night’s sleep. With the winter upon us, most have already started incorporating additional pieces to our bedding routine. However, the question remains, when it comes to making our beds, how many layers do we need?

 

Let’s Start with Sheets

First up are the sheets. Most sets come with a fitted sheet for the bottom and a flat sheet for the top. The fitted sheet will be spread over the mattress, followed by the flat sheet on top. 

  • Material: Cotton comes in various levels of quality. However, the best choice will always be 100% cotton. Cotton is a premium product and breathes much better than linen or other fiber blends, such as polyester. At Warm Things, we have a large selection of cotton-based bed sheets. If you’re looking for a high quality and soft sheet that will keep you warm, check out our flannel 100% cotton set.
  • Weave: If you like smooth and soft sheets, consider cotton woven with a sateen weave. For a lighter and crisper touch, invest in a percale weave.
  • Thread count: A high-quality sheet that will last for years to come will be between 300-450 thread count. We offer a variety of thread count sheets to fit the needs of any budget.

 

Layering Begins with the Blanket

Your layering truly begins with the blanket. A blanket is used to stay warm and is typically made from a thinner material than a comforter. Blankets are commonly draped over your fitted and flat sheets. In winter months, you’ll want to pair your blanket with a comforter for additional warmth. To stay extra toasty, consider buying our quilted wool blanket.

 

Cozy Up Under the Comforter

To double up on the layering, purchase a comforter and place it over the blanket. Typically, the warmest covers you can buy are filled with down. A down-filled duvet insert and a down comforter come in different lofts (fluffiness levels) and weights. If you have allergies to feathers, consider down-alternative comforters that still hold plenty of warmth. When deciding your ideal comforter, consider the temperature of your bedroom and the type of sleeper you are. Check out our comforter guide here for more information.

 

Quilt and Done

With the cooler weather, adding an additional layer, like a quilt, is not a bad idea. Quilts are a traditional bed covering that goes on top to display a design or a pop of color. Lay your quilt over the entire bed as the last step.
