If you aren’t delighted by your bedding, both functionally and aesthetically, you might just find yourself struggling to fall asleep at night or waking up in a bad mood come morning. The good news is there are steps you can take to revitalize your bedroom, creating a space that pleases the eye while meeting your needs no matter the weather outside. At Latest Bedding, we offer a wide selection of summer comforter sets for all tastes and budgets. Want to learn more about how bedding can impact quality of life and help you sleep easier? Read on for details. 

    What to Look for When Choosing a Summer Comforter Set

    Tell us if this sounds familiar: the temperature is well into the 90s, and your bedroom fan isn’t doing nearly enough to beat the heat. As a result, you lie awake for hours, tossing and turning in a sea of sweat-soaked blankets, only to get up exhausted the next morning. Whether you suffer from night sweats or simply tend to sleep hot, it might be time to swap out your heavy winter duvet for a summer comforter set that better meets your needs. Fortunately, there are plenty of lightweight sets that let you stay cool without sacrificing coziness. Here are some considerations when choosing a bedding option for summer.


    When it comes to summer comforter options, bedding material is one of the most essential decisions. After all, some fabrics are simply more breathable than others. If you want to stay cool and dry no matter how high the temperature rises, it pays to do your homework. While linen gets a lot of the hype when it comes to cool bedding, cotton is also a great choice for summer nights. Along with being highly breathable, Egyptian cotton is known for its moisture wicking properties. The last thing you want on a hot summer night is to lie down under heavy blankets that don’t let air and dampness pass through.


    You don’t have to be a bedding expert to know that heavy comforter sets are less desirable when the temperature turns warm. While thick, weighty comforters are perfect for snuggling up on frozen nights, summer sleepers tend to love bedding that’s light and fluffy. Depending on your preferences, you can opt for either down or down alternatives fills. Lightweight quilts are also good for summer as they provide a cozy bedding option that isn’t too stifling.


    Light-colored bedding might not actually keep you cool on sweltering summer nights. However, the odds are you’ll feel better if your bedding evokes all things airy and delicate. While those heavy plaids and deep hues are perfect for winter, summer sleepers are likely to rest easier beneath shades like blue, green, lavender, tan, grey, and cream. As a bonus, these cool colors are known to have a calming effect, and we could all use more of that these days.


    Tired of those stuffy winter comforter sets? Adding texture to your bedding can go a long way toward upping your summer style quotient. We especially love the way fringe, tassels, pintucking, and ruching make a space shine. For best results, use lighter accents that won’t weigh down your bedroom. It’s also fun to include accent pillows in a range of fabrics and textures. Options include silk, satin, linen, and even velvet. You can stick to lighter fabrics like cotton and bamboo for your sheets.


    Most of us can’t afford to redecorate our bedroom on a whim. The good news is you don’t have to spend a fortune to create an aesthetically pleasing space that’s perfect for summer. At Latest Bedding, we take pride in offering customers affordable, brand-name bedding by designers like Pure Parima, J Queen, Croscill, and Waterford. The end result is that you can enjoy lightweight, silky soft bedding without paying the prices common at department stores.


    Advantages of Having a Summer Comforter Set

    The heavy bedding that kept you warm all winter long doesn’t offer many advantages in summer and early fall. As families return from vacations and the kids head back to school, getting enough sleep is more important than ever, and it’s hard to do so when you’re sweating throughout the night. Here are just a few benefits of making the seasonal switch from winter bedding to summer comforter sets. 

    Improve Sleep

    It’s no secret that sleep plays a key role in daily life. Not only is proper sleep crucial for succeeding in school or at work, but it also helps us stay healthy, preventing illness, depression, and even disease. Naturally, it’s hard to get enough sleep when you’re spending all night tossing and turning under stifling blankets. However, it can also be tough to slumber when you don’t like the look of your bed. When you swap out your winter bedding for a soothing summer comforter set, you give your body the airflow it needs to rest easy while encouraging your mind to drift off. 

    Stay Healthy and Allergy Free

    Lightweight summer bedding can also help sleepers fight off allergies. One of the benefits of cotton is that it’s naturally antibacterial. In other words, bacteria and other harmful substances are less likely to cling to cotton than synthetic fibers. And because cotton is machine washable, you don’t have to worry about dust, dirt, and pet hair building up over time. You can protect your health and your skin while sleeping easy on even the hottest of summer nights. 

    Refresh Your Look

    Of course, investing in summer bedding isn’t just an opportunity to stay cool. It also gives you the chance to switch up your style. A new sheet set or comforter can be just the thing to refresh your look without breaking the bank. Even just adding a few throw pillows might be enough to bring a smile to your face whenever you walk through your bedroom door after a long day. 

    Top Materials for Summer Comforters

    It’s no secret that bedding material plays a crucial role in keeping sleepers warm or cool. But how do you know which of the many options available is right for you? If you’re looking for a breathable, moisture-wicking comforter set for summer, cotton and linen are among the top choices. Both woven from natural materials, these fabrics have a crisp, cool feel regardless of the season. As a bonus, linen is a natural temperature regulator, meaning it’s proven to keep you cool in summer and warm in winter. 

    Then again, perhaps you’re looking for breathable coolness that’s also exceptionally soft. If you want to experience the ultimate in luxury, it’s hard to beat silk bedding. While a little on the pricey side, silk is known for adjusting to your body temperature. Plus, the shiny weave gives the fabric an extravagant appearance. Consider a silk quilt set to keep you cool and cozy no matter how high the mercury rises. 

    Summer Comforters for Every Taste and Budget

    Clearly, certain bedding materials offer benefits in warmer weather. However, that doesn’t mean you have to settle for a summer comforter set that doesn’t meet your tastes or budget requirements. At Latest Bedding, we offer a broad selection of bedding designs in cool summer shades like white, sand, beige, pebble gray, and pale blue. Additionally, we stock plenty of accent pillows to make a stunning statement. In particular, bedding design experts are big proponents of patterns for this time of year. Consider classic designs like pin stripes or polka dots or go bold with awning stripes, florals, or even paisley. Here are just a few of the designer brand comforter sets perfect for the warm days still ahead.
