It’s the middle of summer and you just can’t seem to get a good night's sleep. You toss and turn, trying every position in an effort to stay cool but nothing seems to work. If this sounds familiar, it may be time for you to make some changes in your bedroom that will help keep you cool at night during hot weather.
Here are a few tips on how to keep cool while sleeping and getting a good nights rest even when temperatures rise outside. These tips are just a few of the ways you can keep cool in bed at night during hot summer weather and you’ll be sleeping peacefully in no time!
1) Choose the right bedding
One of the most important steps for keeping cool at night is making sure you have the right bedding. Look for sheets made from natural fibres such as cotton or linen as these materials are better at absorbing moisture than synthetics like polyester or nylon (or even polyester mix) which can trap heat against your body instead of allowing it to escape through evaporation.
Additionally, opt for light coloured bedding as dark colours absorb more sunlight during the day which can lead to higher temperatures throughout your bedroom come night-time.
2) Pick up a cooling mattress pad
A cooling mattress pad is designed specifically with hot sleepers in mind and is great if you don’t want (or don't have budget) for a new mattress. A cooling pad helps draw heat away from your body and can help keep you comfortable for the entire night.
3) Invest in a quality mattress
A good mattress is an investment, but it’s well worth it if you want to stay cool and get a good night’s rest.

4) Use a fan in your bedroom
Moving air helps reduce humidity as well as temperature which makes it easier to sleep through those hot summer nights.
A stand fan is ideal as you can move it around or ceiling fans are also great for circulating air throughout the bedroom - just make sure you get a qualified electrician to install it for you.
5) Adjust your thermostat
If you have air conditioning, set the temperature to around 18 degrees during the summer months. This should give you just the right amount of cooling and also help cut down on energy costs. Remember to keep your windows closed if you use air con though!
6) Close your blinds and curtains during the day
So that the sun can't warm up your room, it's best to keep your curtains and blinds closed if the sun shines in to that room. This is so that the room doesn't heat up during the day. You can open them again once the sun stops shining on the windows though.
With these tips in mind, you can rest assured that you’ll have a cool and comfortable night’s sleep even when temperatures soar outside. Visit International Furniture today for more bedroom furniture options to make sure you get a good night's sleep all year round. We look forward to seeing you!
