Every summer we are reminded that getting to the right temperature is the key to a perfect night’s sleep. When we are too warm or too cold our REM sleep is interrupted, causing us to toss and turn. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information’s (NCBI) research
, our temperature is one of the most important aspects of how well we sleep at night. Your mattress could be partly to blame for your uncomfortably hot night’s sleep. With tempurpedic or soft mattresses, the warmer the material is the farther you sink into the bed. This makes warm nights even hotter, but there are ways to combat this unwanted heat. Try looking for mattresses with natural fabrics like cotton, wool, and latex for a cooler night’s sleep. Also, opting for innerspring and tempurpedic mattresses with cooling effects, means there’s no reason to suffer from the heat. Not looking for a new mattress? Then try looking for breathable materials for your bedding needs like cotton, bamboo, or silk, which allow for more airflow for those stuffy summer nights. Here at Wholesale Mattress Center, we want you to stay cool this summer and get the best night’s sleep possible. Here are a few of our best tips to battle the humidity this season.
If you are in the market for a new mattress this summer, look for natural materials to fight the heat. Typically mattresses with fabrics that are denser like foam are warmer, and looser fabrics like wool are cooler. Fabrics like cotton are always breathable enough to allow you to stay cool. Wool is often thought of as a warm material, but it is actually an insulator which allows it to regulate heat and humidity. While latex is thought to be a synthetic material, Talalay latex is actually made of natural fibers. These all-natural materials make latex a good option for staying cool this summer. Plus, it is naturally antibacterial and dust mite resistant! When looking for types of mattresses, go for a hybrid innerspring mattress. Innerspring mattresses are usually made with a layer of foam, fabric padding, and coils, which will allow air to flow through easily. Our own Brittany Cushion Firm
mattress is made with Pocketed Coil Technology, AirCool Memory Foam and SurfaceCool Plus Fiber for better support and temperature management.
If you are looking for a foam mattress that can keep you cool look for memory foam with cooling features.The Tempur-Pedic Luxe Breeze mattress
has ventilated TEMPUR-APR making it up to 8 degrees cooler than a normal mattress, resulting in a more refreshing sleep. No matter what your price range, we have the mattress you need to stay comfortable and cool this summer.
Are you tired of the heat, but not looking to buy a whole new mattress? Then try changing your bedding choices. For new sheets, look for breathable materials like cotton, bamboo, or silk that are naturally cooler by allowing air to flow freely through them. These materials wick moisture away from your body, so you can stay comfortable on those humid summer nights. Stay away from jersey or synthetic materials for your sheets. These are thicker and heavier materials, which makes air flow almost impossible. For a comforter, find a linen, cotton, or down blanket that is lightweight enough to keep you from sweating throughout the night. Another great addition to your bedding to stay cool this summer is adding a mattress pad. If your mattress is making you warm then add a thin cotton mattress pad for the summer. This is a great option that allows you to cool your bed down without having to buy a new mattress.
Don’t let your sleep suffer this summer! According to a Sleeprate study
, 80% of people say they sleep better in cool weather. If you are looking for easy fixes to stay cool this summer look at changing your sheets to natural fabrics or buying a cooling mattress pad. If you are in the market for a new mattress that will keep you cool, look for innerspring or tempurpedic mattresses with cooling features.
