Getting a good night’s sleep can be challenging during summer, however simple tips and change can make your bedroom summer ready and help you get some peaceful sleep. By making some of these practical changes, you are better positioned to get some comfortable sleep despite warmer nights.
In this post, we are explaining some easy ways to get your bedroom summer ready and sharing some best mattresses for summer. Let’s dive in.
Getting your bedroom summer ready: easy ways to sleep better during summer
Change the bed linens (bedsheets, pillow, comforter etc.)
This is the first basic step of giving a quick summer makeover to your bedroom. We all use plenty of warm quilts, comforters and thick bed sheets during winter to stay warm and cozy. But now, it is time to say goodbye to all those warm bed essentials. Summer is the time to flaunt light-colored, airy and cooler bed linens. Summer-appropriate bed essentials offer effective temperature regulation and help you sleep better at night.
Pay attention to the color scheme too
Next, it is important to pay proper attention to your bedroom’s color scheme too, and by this we don’t mean that you must paint your wall a new color. By making some smart changes, like changing the curtains and bedroom accessories, or using summer theme wallpaper, you can easily incorporate light and cooler colors in your bedroom. You can use teal, pastel or any bright and light color of your choice. This color change creates a relaxing, sleeping environment in the bedroom and makes the bedroom a welcoming space during hot sunny weather.
Scientific study suggests clutter and unnecessary stuff in the bedroom increases stress, anxiety and disturbs sleep quality. Thus, it is important to adopt a minimalistic approach and keep only those things which are essential. Decluttering not only creates more open space in your bedroom, but it helps in improving your mental health and sleep quality as well.
Add a natural touch (plants, flowers, etc.) to your bedroom
Nature has amazing healing properties. It helps in reducing day-to-day stress and plays a vital role in the prevention and treatment of various lifestyle diseases like hypertension.
Of course, spending time in nature is the best option, however, it is not possible for everyone because of various reasons (hectic schedule etc.). To get these amazing benefits, you can add a natural touch to your bedroom in summer. Add some indoor plants or fresh flowers to your bedroom décor to create a calming vibe. This small addition can change the overall bedroom environment and offer you a restful sleeping experience.
Select the right material
Next, it is important to choose the right quality material for your bed essentials during summer. Cotton and linen are the best choices of fabric to use during summer. These fabrics offer good breathability and effective temperature regulation and help you sleep better. We recommend fabrics with good moisture-wicking properties as this absorbs moisture and keeps you cool during hot summer nights.
Use correct mattress
Your mattress is one of the most important aspects of your sleep. Summer nights can mean uncomfortable and interrupted sleep for many. While the surrounding temperatures play a role in it, but even your mattress could exacerbate things. Some mattresses (like memory foam mattresses) retain body heat and make you sleep hot at night. Thus, it is important to select a mattress that offers effective temperature regulation and keeps you cool at night. Natural material mattresses like natural organic latex mattress offer temperature regulation. Choosing a mattress with a natural or cooling mattress cover like pure cotton or aloe vera based cover too adds to the comfort.
Is the Natural latex mattress the best mattress for summer weather?
Selecting a good quality mattress depends upon various factors like your body weight, sleeping position etc. and you can select any mattress that satisfies your unique sleeping needs. However, a natural latex mattress possesses many outstanding qualities which make it a suitable mattress for summer.
Natural latex has an open-cell structure. It permits excellent airflow and offers excellent breathability. Natural latex also offers effective temperature regulation and keeps you cool at night. Moreover, natural latex has amazing hypoallergenic properties. They offer natural resistance to dust mites and allergens. This helps you sleep better at night.
With these incredible features, natural latex can be the best mattress for hot weather to improve your sleep quality.
