Optimum bedroom temperature for sleeping


#1

My wife and I are locked in to what I guess will be a lifelong battle over the temperature of our bedroom overnight.

I like a window open at all times of year. Fresh air, low temperature and adjust bedding/bedwear as appropriate. She likes it warm, stuffy even. Fuck that.

What do you reckon? Chat encouraged.

Cold, ice cold please. I am yet to find a duvet that doesn’t make me too hot so I like the room to be chilly.


#3

Cold is fine, being too warm is a nightmare.


#4

yeah, I’m with you here. would sleep in an actual fridge if I could


#5

Prefer it cool rather than warm.

In winter we do have a very think duvet and electric blanket though.


#6

The only room I’m happy about having single glazed sash windows is our bedroom. Will always stick my feet out of the duvet at some point because I’m too hot.


#7

cold and dark, a tomb would be great


#8

How does your partner feel about this chilly room?


#9

We have separate duvets, I forked out a small fortune for an expensive warm one from John Lewis (!) to ensure her compliance in the matter.


#10

I’m with you, Crisps.


#11

warming bed up = easy as you like

cooling bed down = hell on earth


#12

It’s 16°, here anyway, September to March-ish. Anything higher is too stuffy, lower doesn’t take the chill off the room. No point having it on all night, though.


#13

I usually sleep in the spare room these days because then I can have the window open and fall asleep to the lovely outside noises (rain, distant cars, nearby drunks etc.)

The main bedroom is baking. I don’t like it.


#14

21 Celsius (°C) minimum. No open windows.


#15

That’s nocturnal insanity.


#16

Thanks man.


#17

:punch:


#18

Alright, Jay Kay.


#19

I think 15-16 degrees Celsius is optimum.
