What you need to know about picking your perfect summer bedding

Lets take a look at some tips for picking the best bedding so you can stay cool during those hot summer nights.

Material matters

When it comes to choosing summer bedding, material is key. If you live in an area where it’s warm year-round, you might keep the same bedding on throughout the year. However, if you live in a region with a changing climate, you won’t want to use your winter sheets in June. Similarly, you won’t want to use a linen sheet set in December.

Think about the thread count

Another important factor to consider when picking out your summer bedding is the thread count. While high thread counts are often mistaken as synonymous with luxury, that isn’t always the case. If you want to avoid trapping unnecessary heat, look for bedding with a thread count between 200 and 400.

And if you like to keep layers on your bed, choose a lightweight blanket so you can easily adjust as you sleep.

Color and pattern

Of course, the color and pattern of your bedding won’t affect your comfort, but it can definitely improve the experience. Luckily, there are plenty of cool duvet covers to choose from. Whether you like loud and bold designs or prefer a more minimalist feel, just remember lighter colors are better for reflecting sunlight and heat.

Size and fit

Before you purchase any new bedding, make sure you know the exact size of your mattress. Just because a sheet set is labeled for queen beds, doesn’t mean it’ll fit your mattress if yours is deeper than the average size. Double-check this before you make an investment and you’ll thank yourself later.

What is the best material for bed sheets for the summer?

Two of the best summer bedding materials are linen and cotton. They’re both light, soft, and breathable fabrics. Plus, a linen sheet can wick moisture away from your body throughout the night.

What bed sheets can I buy that stay cold?

Both cotton and linen will prevent you from getting too warm overnight. If you use a duvet, opt for a linen duvet cover if you want to keep cool while you sleep. Also, keep in mind how many layers you keep on your bed, as too many might cause overheating.

When it comes to comfort, quality is essential

When it comes to bedding, everyone has their preferences. Whether you like layers or prefer to sleep with minimal covering, there’s perfect summer bedding out there for everyone. Don’t be afraid to splurge a little, after all, we spend a huge portion of our lives in bed, so quality is key.
