With the festive season just around the corner, homeowners are gearing up to transform their homes into warm, cosy havens, preparing to welcome friends and family.

Wooden bed makers, Get Laid Beds, shares tips on creating a festive and inviting atmosphere at home: 

Embrace Warmth: Infuse your space with a touch of warmth by decorating your home with golden fairy lights. You can wrap them around your banister, along the windowsill, or drape them around the Christmas tree. 

Change the Aesthetic: Create a welcoming environment where you and your loved ones can unwind. Small additions such as rugs, cushions, and throws can transform your living room into a festive retreat, perfect for cosy gatherings and relaxation. 

Bedding Matters: Don’t overlook your bedding during the winter. Consider investing in a heavy duvet or a thicker cover to keep you warm and snug during the colder nights. 

Sleep expert, Dr Daisy Mae shares tips on how to get a good night’s sleep this winter: “Limit your screen time before bed, the blue light emitted by phones, tablets, and computers can interfere with your body’s production of melatonin, making it harder to fall asleep.  

“Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, even on weekends. Consistency in your sleep schedule helps regulate your circadian rhythm and improves overall sleep quality.”

“Layering your nightwear and bedding is a must to keep the warm air in and the cold air out. A lot of thin layers is far better for keeping warm rather than one thick layer, as it traps the air between them. Opt for cotton or wool bedding and nightwear, and this will be the best method for trapping in plenty of warm air while keeping you comfortable. Cotton helps your body retain heat. Woolen bedding has been shown in medical studies to result in 25% more regenerative sleep than other bedding.”
