Japanese Heating Invention ‘Kotatsu’ Combines Table and Bed into One

Winters are approaching and you need something to fight off cold and keep warm. To counter this predicament Japanese heating invention Kotatsu lets you stay warm in bed all day. The low lying wooden table is covered by a blanket that comes with a built-in heat source, which offers you space to place your legs, while blanket traps heat inside keeping you warm – as cozy as you’d be in bed.

The modern version entitled Oki-gotastu, the moveable table with an electric heater doesn’t insulate the house as central heating does, but offers an inexpensive and practical way of staying warm in winters.

Very simple in design, kotatsu consists of a small table with a heater beneath. To insulate the heat inside, a heavy blanket is placed on top of the table, which is then covered with a tabletop, thus offering an ideal place to sit and enjoy with family.

A great way to spend some quality time with loved ones (along with the cozy sleeping option) Kotatsu gives you chance to enjoy winters in style. Starting at $125 kotatsu can be used in any sitting arrangement, so whether it’s contemporary living or traditional, they are effective space heaters to enjoy winters.
