Keep it Cool, Not Cold
For optimal sleep, it is recommended to keep the thermostat around 67-71 degrees at night. This thermostat setting helps your body maintain its natural core temperature.
If you are still feeling the heat even with the air conditioning? Try turning on a fan to help circulate the cool air throughout the room.
A common mistake to avoid is turning the thermostat down so low that we surpass this optimal temperature. Instead, set the thermostat and try incorporating our additional tips below!
Lighten Up your Down
An easy fix to prep your bed for optimal summer sleeping is swapping your down insert for a lighter weight option. Our Serenity Light Down Comforter is a breathable, light-weight option that is perfect for sleeping in warmer temps. Another favorite? The Caribbean Light by Yves Delorme. Both options are crafted using top-grade white European goose down that provides loft for insulation and lightness for freedom and comfort.
Crisp & Cooling Percale
On a hot night there is no better feeling than slipping into a set of cool, and crisp sheeting. Percale is woven with a looser weave as compared to a sateen. This looser weave allows the fabric to have better air breathability and lends itself to be ideal for hot summer nights. Available in varying levels of thread counts, price points, and patterns we have a percale sheeting collection that is just right for you.
Not a fan of percale? Summertime is linen’s time to shine. The fabric is woven from a flax plant and has natural cooling properties, making it even more breathable, moisture-wicking, and absorbent than cotton. It is also one of nature’s strongest fibers, and holds up incredibly well to washing. It gets softer with time. Bring home a set today, and enjoy it for years.
Light, Airy Blankets
Perfect for summer, these lightweight blankets are great for warm climates or for those who sleep warm year-round, regardless of climate! We also love the casual approach these layering pieces bring to the bedroom.

Block Light…Enter Sleep
Besides feeling as fashionable as Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s, a sleep mask also has many incredible benefits for sound slumber – especially in the summer months when the days begin much earlier. Eye masks provide complete darkness which leads to deeper sleep. Our absolute favorite? The Branche 100% silk eye masks are a luxury for your eyes – and may just be the cure to your sleeping troubles!
The team at Bedside wishes you a very happy, fun filled summer! We hope you enjoy this wonderful time with family and friends. Come visit us in store to help you set the style for summertime sleep. We will see you soon!
