Many experts say that cooler temperatures help us to sleep better as the heat and humidity can disrupt our sleeping patterns and make it difficult to let our bodies rest properly. There are a few tips on how to keep cool even during the hottest summer nights. Get your best sleep no matter the weather and take a look at some of the ways you can ensure a restful night’s sleep.
Keep Sunlight Low
By closing any shades or curtains during the day, it can help limit the amount of heat that your linens may be absorbing without you even knowing it. This can reduce the warmth factor when it is finally time to go to bed. This is especially important if you use darker linens and dark fabric is known to absorb heat much more than lighter fabrics.
Add an Extra Fan to the Bedroom
Even if you have a reliable AC unit, it is always smart to have an extra portable fan that you can maneuver depending on how hot it may get especially in the summertime. Why not even place it right beside you on your nightstand for direct cooling and consistent comfort?
Change Out Your Bedding
When the hotter months come around, it’s best to change out your linens to a fabric that is known to keep you cool. Percale is your best bet when trying to eliminate night sweats. Made with a one-over, one-under weave pattern, percale provides higher breathability and results in a matte, crisp finish for a cooling, comfortable sheet. Try our Ultra Percale sheet set made with 100% Egyptian cotton and a 350 thread count for the summer sheets you’ve been dreaming of.
Switch to Coverlets
If you are a duvet or comforter person, it’s essential that you take note of how these common bedding pieces work in the heat. Normally, these may become too thick and hot to sleep with during the warmer months. Although you could pair a percale duvet cover with a lightweight duvet insert to keep cool, you may opt to use a coverlet or quilt instead. Thinner, lighter, and more breathable, coverlets provide a little extra air conditioning while you sleep, without sacrificing comfort. Our Egyptian cotton coverlets come in an array of colors and are diamond quilted for added texture and style.
