It’s officially winter. Time to layer! You can leave that outerwear in the closet—this is all about indoor layering. We’re here to help you bundle up your bedding. From quilts to coverlets to duvets, we have ideas for those who just want a little extra warmth to those who are looking to lay it on thick. Which combo category is calling your name?
LAYERS OPTION #1: Blanket or Coverlet/Duvet Combo
Do you tend to sleep hot or run cold? Can’t decide! Don't worry, this cooperative combo has your back. One layer is really thin for when you are sleeping hot, while the other is thick and fluffy for colder nights.
BEDUCATION TIP: A blanket or coverlet is typically the thinnest layer you'll add to your bed, so we recommend you place it first, covering your entire bed. From there, a folded duvet at the base of the bed is just the ticket. It will add some fluff and texture to your made bed during the day and be ready to warm you once night falls.
BEDUCATION TIP: If space allows, position a bench at the foot of your bed so you can easily move your duvet and give it the night off when you’re feeling warm. A footboard is another ideal option. Either will keep your added covers within arm’s reach should you need them. After all, the last thing you want to do when you’re freezing is get OUT of bed in search of warmth.

LAYERS OPTION #2: The Quilt/Duvet Combo
This bedding combo is very similar to the blanket or coverlet/duvet combo. The big difference is that quilts have batting, so this combo can potentially be the warmer solution. But the same layering technique applies—your quilt goes on first, covering the entire bed, and your duvet sits folded in a happy bundle at the foot of your bed.
LAYERS OPTION #3: Quilt/Quilt Combo
Can’t stand a duvet? That’s okay! We know they’re not for everyone. It doesn’t mean you can’t take advantaged of doubled-up winter bedding. Simply apply two quilts. The first will cover your mattress, and the second will be ready and waiting at the end of your bed.
BEDUCATION TIP: When it comes to how to fold quilt #2, there are no rules. Fold in the half so it covers the bottom half of your bed, or fold it in half again (so it’s in fourths) and have just a strip draped across your bed’s base.

LAYERS OPTION #4: Add a Comforter
Love a fluffy bed but don’t want to fight with (or spend added money on) a duvet cover? Add a comforter! Position it over your sheets and under your quilt, so it’s sandwiched between your top and bottom layers. This will help keep it clean, which is important. You don’t want to be regularly cleaning a comforter.
LAYERS OPTION #5: Start with the Sheets
Still feeling that nip of frost’s bite? Flannel sheets to the rescue! A nice, high quality set can be so soothing and welcoming at the end of a long day. If flannel feels a tad too heavy, our Brushed Microfiber Sheets are the stuff that dreams are made of. Either way you approach it, a good quality sheet can make all the difference!
