How to Layer a Bed in the Winter

A few months ago we shared our definitiveguide to layering your bed in the summer to avoid tossing and turning during those balmy nights. But now that winter is on its way it’s time to rethink your bedding and re-layer for optimal comfort. If you think a few fleece blankets will do the trick you can find yourself constantly trying to counteract the heat-trapping qualities of cotton with the chilly air — make it easy on yourself and learn how to properly make a bed suitable for the winter.

Switch to Darker Bedding

Dark bedding for winter What we touched on in our summer article still applies —darker colors naturally retain heat, whilelighter colors repel heat and light. Choosing darker colors is wise in the winter, both for the heat-retention qualities and the psychological effect it will have on your wellbeing while you sleep. However, if you make the switch to darker colors invest in ventilated sheets and covers so you do not overheat at night.SHEEX LUXURY COPPER Sheet Set is available in colors like gray, navy, black, and rust.

Get the Right Pillow

When you prepare for the cooler winter months start at the top and pick aSHEEX Cooling Pillow that regulates and limits excess heat transfer. The temptation to over-layer with blankets can cause body heat to build up — with a lightweight cooling pillow you can allow the heat to escape from your head without becoming cold at night. Lightweight, spill-resistant fabric protects against bacteria growth and allows you to gently doze off to sleep each night.

Trust Copper Sheets

The sheets we mentioned above make the perfect bottom layer for your winter bedding. The moisture-wicking properties of our LUXURY COPPER sheets provide relief for anyone who experiences night sweats, while the ultra-luxurious copper ion fabric is reliably soft so you can wrap yourself up and feel safe and secure as you drift off. The advanced thermoregulation provided by our Sleep-Fit Technology keeps you and your partner comfortable and fast asleep all night long.

Upgrade Your Top Layer

With the transition from summer complete simply using your sheets is no longer an option. TheSHEEX® ORIGINAL PERFORMANCE Down Alt Comforter represents a thicker comforter option for your top layer when compared to the lightweight nature of an ECOSHEEX® Coverlet without sacrificing its superior breathability. Curl up in a cloudlike comforter and drift off to sleep as the snow falls outside your window.
