A Step-by-Step Guide to Layering Your Bed in Winter December 12, 2018

A Step-by-Step Guide to Layering Your Bed in Winter, Mason, Ohio

There’s nothing like sinking into a soft, cozy bed after a long, cold winter day. Properly layering your bed ensures that you’re comfortable and well-rested throughout the season. From your sheets to your comforters to your pillows, each bedding element contributes to a snug, toasty experience. Here’s how to make the most of your bed during the coldest months of the year.

5 Key Layers for Your Wintertime Bed

1. A Supportive Mattress Pad

A properly layered bed begins with a high-quality mattress pad. Look for a soft, quilted, breathable fabric so you feel warm, but not so hot that you wake up soaked in sweat. Adding a cloud-like pad is also a simple way to soften a firm mattress.  

2. Velvety Bedsheets

The crisp, cool sheets you love during spring and summer are decidedly less appealing when there’s snow and below-freezing temperatures in the forecast. Stay snuggly on a set of sheets made with soft, warm flannel or jersey cotton. 

3. A Cozy Comforter

Natural down comforters provide all the benefits of a heavyweight, artificial filling like polyester without the bulky look or feel. Find designs that feature sewn-through fabrication so you don’t have to worry about the down shifting every time you maneuver the comforter.  

4. Cushy Pillows

What’s a restful bed without a few squeezable pillows to cushion your head? Pick pillows plumped with duck or goose fill for maximum softness and support, and find pillowcases that match your bedding. 

5. A Decorative Throw

Fold an eye-catching throw over your comforter. Light throws are perfect for draping over your shoulders as you sip a cup of tea or relax atop the covers.
