Summer can be an exciting time, but it can also be a struggle when it comes to getting a good night's sleep. The hot and humid weather can make it very challenging to stay cool and comfortable throughout the night, particularly if you don’t own one of our exceptional designer mattresses. Different people prefer different kinds of comfort and support, so we have a wide range of mattresses on offer. Whether you like your mattress soft or firm, or you prefer pocket springs over memory foam, there’s something to suit everyone here at Taskers of Accrington.

A good mattress is one way to go, but there are several other effective ways to stay cool while you sleep in the summer.

Choose breathable bedding

One of the best ways to stay cool while you sleep is to choose breathable bedding. Materials like cotton and linen are known for their breathability, which allows air to circulate and wick away moisture from your body while you sleep. In the summer, it’s best to try and avoid synthetic fabrics like polyester and rayon as much as possible, as these materials are designed to trap heat, which can make you feel really hot and uncomfortable during those warm summer nights.

Take a cool shower before bed

Taking a cool shower before bed can help lower your body temperature and make it easier to fall asleep. The cool water will help you feel refreshed and relaxed, and it can also reduce any inflammation or irritation you may be experiencing due to the heat. Plus, a cool shower when the weather is warm is by far one of life’s greatest pleasures, so if you’re looking for the ideal way to unwind after a long day then hop in the shower and gradually lower the heat until it’s at a nice cool temperature. If you’re feeling up to the challenge - lower the temperature before you get in and see if you can conquer the cold!

Consider a fan or air conditioner

Using a fan or air conditioner can help circulate cool air throughout your bedroom, making it easier to stay cool and comfortable while you sleep. Position your fan or air conditioner so that it’s blowing directly on to you, or buy a ceiling fan for your space, as this gives you the added bonus of providing a cool breeze from above. We would say though that a ceiling fan might not fit with your bedroom design scheme, so you may want to give it some thought before you commit to having one installed!

Position yourself effectively

Believe it or not, your sleeping position can have a significant impact on how cool and comfortable you feel while you sleep. For instance, sleeping on your back is the best position for staying cool, as it allows air to circulate freely around your body. On the other hand, sleeping on your stomach can trap extra heat underneath you, and leave you feeling hot and uncomfortable.

All in all, staying cool while you sleep this summer is all about finding the right combination of techniques and strategies that work best for you. Plus, having the right kind of bedroom furniture to help you create a cool and calming atmosphere won’t hurt either.

Plus, each of our Harrison Spinks mattresses feature a winter and a summer side, so you can stay comfortable in bed all year round!
