Room In Room: This Indoor Tent Creates A Warmer, Cozier Space Right Above Your Bed
Yes, it’s a ridiculous idea, but there are valid reasons for pitching a tent on your bed. In the case of the Privacy Pop, it was to create a private space, making it ideal for use in dorm rooms and shared bedrooms. The Room in Room, though, wants you to pitch a tent for energy savings, since it will help keep your immediate surroundings warm, allowing you to save on heating bills during the colder months of the year.
Made by iKamper, it’s an indoor tent that’s designed to be pitched right on top of the mattress, where it will conserve heat and keep the bed warm, making your bed a whole lot more comfortable to spend the night in. Once pitched, the tent can keep the temperature inside approximately 10 degrees Fahrenheit higher than the temperature outside, allowing you to feel toastier without having to crank up the thermostat.
Room in Room is able to do that by conserving and circulating the heat inside the tent, all while completely shutting out cold air from outside. A mesh on top of the tent serves as ventilation, allowing you to get fresh air while minimizing heat loss. Construction is a high-density cotton and polyester blend (tetron cotton) for the tent walls and aluminum for the frame and poles, with no floor, so you’re still sleeping right on the same mattress and bedding you’ve always slept in. Features include large, transparent polyurethane windows, an oversized zippered entrance, and various creature comforts, such as an integrated laptop stand, an overhead smartphone mount, and an overhead tablet mount.
A Kickstarter campaign is currently running for Room in Room. Pledges to reserve a unit starts at $70.

Room in Room tent aims to reduce heating bills by insulating sleepers
Winter season and increased heating bills go hand-in-hand, as no one would like to turn down their thermostat on a cold night. However, if you’re looking for economic ways to cut down energy costs, then Room in Room tent is one of the best options for you. Although it’s designed like a conventional camping tent, but this one is meant only for indoor use.
The floorless tent is designed to fit over any existing bed, and works by insulating the space around your bed. So, the cozy tent makes the interior temperature around ten-degrees warmer than the outside space of the tent. Thus, helps in reducing unnecessary electricity bills while you rest.
The indoor tent is made from a bespoke high-density polyester cotton blend called Tetron Cotton, along with 0.3 mm polyurethane windows over a frame of fiberglass and aluminum 601 alloy. Furthermore, it has a mesh vent on the top for proper air ventilation, whilst retaining warm air inside the covered area.
Apart from keeping heating expenses down, the Room in Room tent is also equipped with practical accessories to make relaxing in bed more pleasant. There is an adjustable laptop stand made of webbing and a polyurethane phone stand for watching videos. What else you could ask for in a cozy bed during winter?
It is definitely a perfect way to reduce heating costs by minimizing the use of thermostat and still stay warm. The good news is that this amazing concept has successfully surpassed the initial target amount i.e. $10,000 on Kickstarter and soon its production will start. The retail price is estimated at US $100 for a single unit and US $114 for double units. However, their shipping is expected to begin sometime in January 2016.
