We have all been there before: It’s a summer night, sleep is on your mind, and hot, sticky sheets are you reality. As we make the transition from winter to warmer weather, you may want to consider making a few changes to your sleeping solution. No, it does not have to be complicated. Something as simple as a bedding change has the potential to completely change your sleeping comfort. Unsure where to start? The experts at Mattress Warehouse of Lenexa, Kansas, have the details here.
Tips for Summer Bedding:
While it may be obvious that you should peel off the flannel sheets during summer, have you considered what sheets provide the most breathability and optimal comfort? Fabrics like cotton, sateen, and jersey are all lightweight fibers that provide the ventilation needed to sleep comfortably on a hot summer’s night. While sheets like Egyptian cotton are sure to satisfy your sleep needs, these fabrics provide comfort at a more affordable price.
Remember how they said to not wear dark shirts in the summer when you were kid? Well, they were right. Darker colors trap heat, and your summer bedding is no exception. The solution? Stick with lighter hues — think whites and pastels — during warm weather months. In addition to keeping your bed cooler, these cheery shades will give your room an extra splash of color.
Just like mattresses, not all sheets are created equally. The weight of your bedding is a game changer during spring and summer months, so be sure it is a main consideration as you make this transition. And while choosing the most lightweight bedding may seem like an obvious choice, it does not always equate to enhanced comfort. For instance, those buttery satin sheets may be lighter in weight but more insulating than their thicker counterparts.
