Cool Summer Bedding For Hot Summer Nights

Saffron Marigold - Updated: June 26, 2020

Refresh your bedroom for the season by switching out your winter linens for summer bedding. Made with 100% cotton, our lightweight summer bedspreads and duvet covers will help you feel cool and comfortable on muggy summer nights. 

Choosing your summer bedding

It’s summer, so it’s time to lighten up–literally! Choose summer comforters and summer bedspreads made from breathable fabrics like cotton, linen, and bamboo. And after all, you’ll want to stay cool, because we all know how the air conditioning struggles to work well on hot days!

Summer bedding ideas

Find inspiration for your summer bedroom decor with whatever you find most relaxing about summertime.  For example, choose a coastal look if heading out to the water stirs feelings of peacefulness. Go for florals if tending your garden puts you at ease. When nothing sounds more relaxing than your toes in the sand and a drink in your hand, then a tropical vibe’s the one for you. From bohemian bedding to beach house bedroom decor, we have the right summer bedspreads and duvet covers for you.

Classic summer bedding: white bedding

Nothing feels fresher than white bedding.  After all, the best white bedroom ideas always begin with white bedding! Choose a soft cotton white duvet cover or white bedspread for a clean look that keeps you cool all summer long. Add a pair of white sheets and toss in a few patterned throw pillows for a dose of summer color.

Lakehouse love: coastal bedding

Retreating to a cool blue bedroom on hot summer nights sounds as serene as paddling through shaded coves on a summer afternoon. Easily transform your room into a coastal oasis with blue and white bedding. Pair it with a healthy dose of white for an elegant coastal design. Add splashes of red for a nautical look or touches of taupe as a nod to sandy shores.

Vintage-style: beach house bedding

Beach house style is easy, breezy, and charming. Vintage floral print bedspreads in cheerful colors conjure nostalgic images of childhood days at the shore. Bring those memories to life with our block print bedspreads for a look that’s a bright, beautiful, and fun.

Bright florals & tropical bedding

Whether you live out in the country or downtown, you can create your own tropical paradise in the summer or year-round! Choose our tropical bedding in prints that call to mind sweet mangos and fragrant gardens. For a true taste of the tropics, ditch the flamingos and seashells and go for natural accents like straw and wicker.

Tips for styling your summer bedroom

Inspired yet? You may very well want to keep the summer vibes going all year long! Whether it’s just for the season or throughout the year, the right summer bedding and decor can help you turn your bedroom into a sumptuous retreat.  

Hang gauzy white curtains

Replace heavy window treatments with white sheer curtains. Airy white curtains look beautiful in the summer breeze and help to create a peaceful, soothing, and summery space. 

Breathable sheets are a summer bedding must

You’ll be on your way to a great night’s sleep when you make your summer bed with lightweight bedding.  Avoid microfiber sheets in summer–they won’t breathe as well as cotton, linen, or bamboo linens.
