Transition to Winter Bedding
Winter came early this year here in New York City. There was snow in the forecast before we had anytime to truly enjoy Fall. But even with the chilly temperatures, the trees are still glowing in red, orange, and yellow. As we every year at this time, we make small adjustments in our home to adapt to the changing temperatures. Bedding is always something we change out when we get into Winter and then again when Summer hits. Winter can be tricky because we live in an old building and the heaters aren’t easily controlled. Hot air rises and even if we turn off the heaters, so there is still hot air streaming through. Sometimes we even open the window or even put on the AC. Not ideal but we just adjust. It’s no big deal but we need to adjust accordingly. Fortunately, we have found the perfect bedding products to keep us comfortable in the cold months ahead.
Our great partners at Bed Bath & Beyond make finding the best bedding for you really easy. What kind of sleeper are you? Do you get hot or cold? What kind of fabric do you like? How important is it that your products are organic? How do you like your sheets to feel? These are some of the things we considered before selecting any products which BBB laid out for us online. Ideal bedding for us is based on our sleeping temperature(s) and habits, room environment, and more. Overall, we tend to be warm sleepers so we usually get hot before we get cold. Bed Bath & Beyond has great products to keep you cool at night so you don’t wake up sweating or freezing. You know when you wake up freezing because you threw off your covers before you fell asleep because you were too hot? Happens to the best of us. Now, no more. From sheets, pillows, blankets and duvet covers, we are set for winter.
Amongst all the options they have across brands, size, fabric, sustainability and more, there was one blanket that we were so excited to try out. The one we chose was the Therapedic Weighted Cooling Blanket. Normally, I prefer a more lightweight blanket, but I wanted to see if it truly kept me cooler at night. Happy to say, it works perfectly. Whether I laid directly on top of it or draped it over me, I stayed comfortable the entire night. No more night sweats. For pillows, we went with the the Therapedic TruCool Memory Foam Side Sleeper Pillows. While we aren’t typically side sleepers, we loved that they are oversized and have the fabric cover that keeps you cool. Super comfortable and now our favorite pillows. We loved our old Temper-Pedic standard pillows but love the switch. Our sheets are the Wamsutta Dream Zone 500-Thread-CountPimaCott Set. They are classic white, breathable and lightweight. We got the matching duvet, which fits our duvet perfectly. It’s simple yet elegant. Last but certainly not least is my new Therapedic Weighted Eye Mask. It doesn’t lay too heaevy on your eyes and has been a big contributor to helping me fall asleep faster. It’s going to be a stocking stuffer for both my parents this year!
We couldn’t have been happier with how our bed now feels and so excited we get to share these products with you. Let me know if you have any questions and let me know if you tend to swap out pieces from your bedding when the seasons change. Have an amazing rest of your week!
