Single Electric Blankets
Single electric blankets are really affordable to buy and run, so they make a great option for students who want to keep cosy in bed without running up a huge heating bill. Check out our range below - there's something for everyone!
Something for Every Budget
Single electric blankets are a great way to keep cosy on a budget. Single beds can get chilly in the winter as you’re likely in there on your own. They offer more flexibility than a hot water bottle as they allow you to choose your own heat setting, and they warm across the whole bed rather than one area.
A Blanket for Any Single Bed
While they’re all lumped into the same size category, not all single beds are the same size. That’s why our range includes something for every single bed and mattress! We’ve got fully-fitted models with an extra-deep elastic skirt that can fit any mattress height, elastic straps, tie tapes, or overblankets.
Perfect for Students
Single electric blankets are ideal for student accommodation! They don’t use much electricity and can be used to keep students warm throughout the night. If you’re a student looking for a low-cost way to keep warm, you should go for a simple but affordable model. If you’re looking to buy the blanket as a gift for a student, why not treat them to a premium fleece model? These blankets are extra-cosy and perfect for sinking into after a hard day’s studying.
How to Fit Your Electric Blanket
Most electric blankets these days are designed to fit to your bed. You should fit them directly onto your mattress, then put your fitted sheet on top of that. Then you can add your duvet on as normal.
Who Can Use an Electric Blanket?
Electric blankets are suitable for almost everyone, including older children who are not at risk of wetting the bed. The models you can see above are also safe to use for people with pacemakers, though you should consult your doctor if you’re concerned.
If you have diabetes or another condition which can cause your skin to feel numb, we recommend consulting your doctor before using an electric blanket. Every model you see above is fitted with an overheat protection system which prevents them from getting too hot, but if your skin is sensitive to heat it’s best to see your doctor to be sure.
You can safely use fitted electric blankets with most types of memory foam or memory foam mattress, although we wouldn’t recommend it. This is because the heating elements inside the blanket can interfere with the way the foam shapes to fit your body.
Babies, toddlers, and very young children at risk of bedwetting shouldn’t use electric blankets.
