With summer making its way towards us, it is time to make changes around the house to match the weather. To make your bed and bath linens summer-ready, you will need to replace them periodically. Not only will your fresh printed bed sheets keep you cool and dry during these hot months, but they can also be a time for new beginnings. In this blog post, you'll learn how to create a refreshing bedroom atmosphere with a few simple changes to your bedding.
What Are the Ingredients for A Refreshing Bedroom?
A fresh bedroom starts with a few minor changes. One of the most obvious is switching out your bedding. If you're tired of all that extra heat, consider changing your sheets to something cooler and lighter. But don't stop at just the sheets - it's also time to replace your pillowcases, duvet cover, and even your comforter if you have one. A light-coloured duvet cover helps reflect some of the heat from the sun, while a dark comforter will keep you warm during those cold nights. You can also switch to the SPACES Temperature Regulating range of comforters that will wick moisture away from you and regulate its temperature to match that of your room.
How Often Should You Replace Your Bed and Bath Linens in Summer?
If you want to keep your bed and bath linens summer-ready, don't wait until the middle of a heatwave to buy new sheets. This year, start shopping for new bedding now. Then, as soon as winter ends, start saving up for that perfect set of organic cotton sheets. You can buy your cotton bedsheet online and bath linen products through the SPACES website.
But the actual question is, how often should you replace your bed and bath linens in summer? The answer is once every two years or so to make sure your linens are summer-ready. Even with proper care, bedding will experience wear and tear from everyday use.
No matter what climate you live in, it is important to change your bedding during the hotter months to avoid any health risks associated with mould or mildew build-up on your sheets.
Tips For Buying New Linens
There are a few key things to keep in mind when buying new linens. First, consider the weight of the fabric. If you want something lightweight, cotton is ideal. This material will breathe and help you stay cool during the summer months. It also absorbs moisture well, which can be useful if you're prone to sweating at night. Cotton is also easy to wash and dry and becomes softer with every wash. You can find cotton bath robes in a variety of colours in the SPACES Exotica range.
Next, consider your bedding preferences. Cotton is a good choice for these items if you prefer a more traditionally styled duvet and pillowcases. However, if you like modern fabrics and prints, choose something made from polyester or silk instead.
Finally, decide on your budget before shopping for linens. You may find that some sets seem expensive but offer exceptional quality and others that are cheaper but not quite as high-quality. It's up to you whether you want your linens to last a while or be inexpensive enough that you can replace them often with no consequence.
Storage Tips for Your Linens
We recommend storing your sheets, towels, bathing robe and other bed and bath linen in an airy, dark, cool place away from direct sunlight. In addition, it's a good idea to clean your linen closet (or storage space) once every six months or so to avoid mildew.
For summer linens, don't forget the importance of checking for stains or fading before storing them away. You'll want to replace any items that are no longer looking their best.
Maintaining Your Linens
It's best to wash and change your sheets every two weeks if you use them consistently. If you do not use them regularly, then at least one change per season is recommended. This will ensure that your linens are neither too hot nor too cold during the cooler seasons. Make sure to check the wash instructions for your bedsheets so you can preserve and use them for a longer time. You should also ensure they dry completely and store them properly in your linen closet.
