A Guide to Making Your Bedroom a Cosy Sanctuary for the Winter

With winter fast approaching, how do you create a cosy sanctuary in your bedroom?

If you want to get the optimum night’s sleep from sleeping in a slightly cooler room, you will need to work just that bit harder to keep yor body at the optimum temperature in bed during those cold winter’s nights.   This is where The Fine Cotton Company’s superb range of luxury, organic and natural bedding and bed linen can really help you.

It’s all about layering – start from the bottom with your bed and layer it up for your optimum luxury, organic sleeping experience.

Start with a really good mattress enhancer.   A good mattress enhancer will give you many benefits, such as added support, greater comfort as you sleep, and will help to keep you cosy and warm.   It will also help to protect your mattress, thus lengthening its life significantly. The Fine Cotton Company has an excellent range of mattress enhancers or toppers – revel in the opulence of a Silk Filled Mattress Topper .   Silk keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer and these amazing silk mattress enhancers will give a soft, luxurious feel to your mattress.   They also create a healthier sleeping experience for you as they are naturally hypoallergenic, making them ideal for allergy sufferers, and also help to regulate your body temperature.   Or you could opt for the simplicity of the ‘Luxury Cotton Mattress Protector’ and sink into the soft comfort of its 100% natural cotton warmth.

The next layer that you need to look at is the sheet that goes over the mattress enhancer.   The best sheet to get is deep fitted sheet in the correct size for your bed.   This ensures that the sheet won’t ping off during the night, interrupting your precious sleep.   To enhance your warmth and cosiness, choose flannelette as the material for your fitted sheet.   The Fine Cotton Company’s ‘Stowe’ range offers fitted sheets in soft 100% organic cotton that has been lightly brushed to give a very warm and comfortable finish.   Guaranteed to keep you toasty on a cold winter’s night!

Maybe the most important layer is the next one, which is the duvet.   Choosing the correct duvet is all important when it comes to keeping you warm during the colder months. The weight, softness and warmth of a duvet will depend on its tog rating and filling, and the higher your tog rating the warmer you will be! The Fine Cotton Company only stocks natural duvets as they are very durable and naturally breathable, and natural filled duvets also have very efficient thermal properties.   In the winter, depending on how warm your home is,  you will probably need to have a duvet that is between 12.0 – 13.5 tog to keep you snug. Choose a Pure Silk Duvet from The Fine Cotton Company for light and luxurious snuggling throughout the winter months, or invest in the ultimate luxury of a Snowgoose Down Duvet , where you can luxuriate in the softest 100% Snowgoose down originating from the Northern Territories of Canada.   They are exceptionally light and super warm, and have a lavish 50% silk and 50% cotton 440 threadcount cover. All the duvets in the Fine Cotton Company’s range have matching pillows , so snuggle your head down into one of these amazingly supportive and cosy silk or goose down pillows.

To add to your warmth and cosiness, put a cosy, brushed cotton ‘ Stowe’ duvet cover onto your duvet. If you still feel that you will not be warm and toasty enough, The Fine Cotton Company has a wonderful collection of throws to choose from.   Make your selection from the soft, pure organic fleece of the Hampton throw, or really indulge yourself and savour the supremely soft luxury of the fringed pure cashmere ‘Henley’ throw

So now that you have set up your bedroom to ensure a wonderful night’s sleep on a cold, winter night, and successfully layered your bed with the help of The Fine Cotton Company, all that you need to do is snuggle down under your duvet with that steaming mug of hot chocolate that we promised you earlier.

Wishing you many wonderful, long, cosy nights of sleep throughout the winter from everyone at The Fine Cotton Company
