Having the right bedding and bed sheets makes all the difference when it comes to an optimal sleep environment. It can mean the difference between too hot, too cold, too rough, too soft, too thick, too thin, etc. Your bedding should change with the seasons so not only to provide you with better comfort but also to give your bedroom a refresh.

As I have said many times, when you consider how much time you spend in bed, 1/3 of your life, making a sound investment in bedding is well worth it.

If you find that you are sleeping too hot at night, you need more than just cooling sheets. Check out my SlumberCloud mattress pad review. It incorporates new technology that actually keeps you cool at night.

    I am a hot sleeper, and would LOVE reviews of products that help keep those of us who sleep hot from suffering. My partner bought a memory foam “gel infused” mattress retail without research, and I am now in a living hell. When I research gel toppers, etc, the reviews are all over the place, and it is hard to tell what will help. 🙁

Percale Sheets

Percale sheets have more of a crispy feel. Depending on construction, they can feel like a freshly ironed dress shirt or have a more relaxed feel. They are usually more breathable than a sateen.

Organic Sheets

Cotton is the dirtiest crop in the world. There are all kinds of chemicals used in growing conventional cotton but it doesn’t have to be that way. Organic cotton sheets are made without toxic pesticides that are harmful for the planet and workers. These sheets look and feel great. Organic bedding is becoming more commonplace as consumers are demanding more eco friendly and sustainable options.
