The summer season is upon us! Well, almost. Either way, you can never be overly prepared for summer, and if you’re looking for inspiration on how to choose the right bed sheets for this season, then read on. We’ve prepared a really handy guide for you on how to pick the best sheets for summer to help you enjoy this season in comfort and style.  

 

Materials

Egyptian cotton: Cotton is considered a no-brainer when it comes to choosing bed sheets for the summer because it’s a highly breathable material that will effortlessly keep your body cool during those balmy summer nights. However, not all cotton is the same and some types are more breathable and comfortable than others.

Come summer, nothing beats Egyptian cotton when it comes to keeping cool during sleep. That’s because this material is woven from long-staple fibers, with threads that are smooth, sinuous and durable. The best part is that the more you wash Egyptian cotton sheets, the softer they get, so you’ll be able to enjoy that soft, luxury feeling against your skin for longer, and it’s also hypo-allergenic and won’t lose its durability over time. Our Valentino 1200 Thread Count Egyptian Cotton Sheets is a marvelous option for the summer, as it has all the qualities you want in an ultra-comfortable summer sheet set.

 

 Linen: Linen sheets are a summer staple for many reasons. For one, they has thermal properties, which means that they adapt to your temperature to keep you cool when it’s hot and warm when it’s cool. They’re also hypoallergenic, highly durable and very breathable, which is great. And because it naturally looks creased, linen material is very low maintenance, and you’ll be glad to know that it’s moth resistant as well, which is a huge plus during the summer. All in all, linen sheets are a great option for summer because they’re durable, comfortable and super soft. Check out our Paola Linen bedding collection.

 

 

 Bamboo: Another fantastic material for bed sheets during the summer is bamboo. Similar to linen, it’s highly breathable and hypoallergenic; it feels incredibly soft and silky on the skin and is highly durable as well. While creasing is one of the biggest concerns when it comes to bamboo sheets, there are non-wrinkling bamboo sheet varieties available out there that don’t require any ironing, such as our Bali Bamboo Luxury Sheet Set, which is available in 12 different colors and comes with a free pillow.

Also, bamboo is a marvelous option for eco-conscious consumers because it’s made from sustainable bamboo grass, which not only grows fast, but also utilizes less water and does not require the use of pesticides to grow.

 

 

Thread count

You might also want to consider thread count when shopping for summer sheets. This refers to the amount of threads that have been woven into each inch of fabric of the material you’re buying. For example, soft and superior-quality materials tend to have a higher thread count, hence the luxurious feel that they have.

 

 Prints and colors

  • A touch of white: Not only is the color white soothing and cooling, but it makes the space feel lighter as well. Having white sheets can instantly lift the mood while relaxing you at the same time, the perfect combination of emotions after a long hot day, no?
  • Go for stripes: Stripes are an ideal way to add color to your bedroom during the summer without overdoing it. They will also make your room look less cluttered than it actually is, while adding a certain contemporary flair to it as well.
  • Add a splash of color: Even for those people that like to keep their bedroom palate in simple pastels, the summer is generally the best time to introduce some color. Toss a few colorful pillows and a matching throw like our Clarissa Large Oversized Throw Blanket, over white sheets. Or choose a unique sheet set with embroidered edges for added texture and dimension.
