With the temperature dropping and the days getting shorter, you know it’s time to embrace the season and make your room cosy and comfortable, starting with bedding.
Here’s a few things to consider if you’re transitioning to an autumn setting in your bedroom.
Autumn is the season with the most unpredictable and changeable weather, and this can deeply impact your sleep cycle. When it comes to getting a good night’s sleep, choosing the right material for your bedding is a game changer. The good news is that there is a bed sheet for every type of sleeper, and once you find the right match, you will enjoy undisturbed rest for the years to come.
If you easily overheat, opt for light-coloured, breathable sheets – check for labels indicating “cooling sheets” or “temperature-regulating” to find products specifically designed to meet your needs. Cotton sheets are a popular choice due to their breathability and their affordable price. Skin-friendly and generally comfortable, cotton is one of the most accessible materials, also available in different seasonal patterns. With its luxurious silky texture, bamboo is a great eco-friendly alternative. Being naturally antibacterial and hypoallergenic, it provides extra relief and comfort, regulating the temperature to keep you cosy through the night. Aside from being slightly more expensive, bamboo sheets may be a worthwhile investment for restful nights.
For the cold sleepers, choose flannel sheets as they tend to trap body heat, creating a cosy sleeping environment. Due to its insulating properties, microfiber is also an excellent material for cocooning on the chilliest nights. Consider layering your bed sheets with warm blankets to add an extra level of cosiness.
We’ve covered bed sheets, but what about your duvet? Whether you’re using cooling or plush sheets, you want your duvet to be as breathable and comfortable as possible. With its exclusive Outlast technology and bouncy hollowfibre, Sleepeezee Temperature Regulating Duvet easily adapts to different situations and needs, making all the difference for a clean, blissful night’s sleep.
As you’ll be spending more time at home, you may want to recreate a magical, atmosphere by bringing the warmth and richness of the season indoors.
When selecting your bedding colours or bedroom décor, seek inspiration from outside your window. Embrace the vibrant hues of the season, then play with different layers and textures. Burnt orange, deep burgundy, and earthy browns are warm, inviting options but you could also opt for nature-inspired patterns, such as leaves or acorn designs. Have fun mixing different bedding and decorative pieces, keeping a consistent overall look.
And if you want to add an extra touch for your nights in, there’s nothing better than the soothing fragrance of a candle or an oil diffuser. These scents will instantly create a relaxing atmosphere, perfect to decompress after a long workday.
