How to Cool Down Your Bedroom When it’s Hot?

Hello, Dear Friends.
Today I am publishing a guest post from a very interesting site TUCK

How to Cool Down Your Bedroom When it’s Hot Outside?

When it starts getting hot outside, you may feel your bedroom temperature start to rise and become uncomfortable. It’s tough to sleep when you’re feeling hot. You may find it difficult to relax and fall asleep under the covers, or you may wake up in a sweat.

If you have central air that can keep up with the heat, turning down your home’s thermostat is an obvious choice for maintaining a cold bedroom. But if your home feels hot, even at night, there are steps you can take to make it cooler and more comfortable.

Use a fan. Whether you install an overhead fan or put a powerful one in the corner of your room, a fan can make a difference. Even if the air in your room is warm, a fan can cool it down by a few degrees, and offer a breeze that can feel refreshing when you’re overheated.

Choose natural, breathable bedding. You wouldn’t sleep on flannel sheets in the summer, but you may not realize synthetic fibers can have the same warming effect. Instead, you can make your bed with natural, breathable fibers including cotton and bamboo.

Cool down your mattress. Your mattress can retain heat, especially memory foam mattresses. You can cool it down and reduce heat retention by adding a cooling mattress topper for the summer.

Use blackout curtains. With sunshine comes heat. If you have windows that get sun, especially in the afternoons, make sure they are screened or better yet, covered with a blackout curtain to block room warming light. These curtains can help keep distracting light out at night when you’re trying to sleep, too.

Turn off electronics and lights. Avoiding screen time in the bedroom is generally a good idea, as the light emitted from screens can interfere with your circadian rhythm. In the summer, turning off electronics including your TV, computer, and other appliances can cut down on the heat they emit as well. It’s a good idea to turn down or turn off lights as well, as lights can emit heat like any other electronic item.

Repurpose your hot water bottle. Bring your hot water bottle out of summer hibernation. Instead of filling it with hot water as you would in the winter, fill it with cold water and put it in the freezer, then place it in between your sheets to cool them down before you get in bed.

Don’t take hot showers. A hot shower can warm you up — and it can also heat up your bedroom. When it’s hot outside, turn down the water temperature and avoid letting the water run for an extended period.

It’s no fun to sleep in a hot bedroom. Even experts say that temperatures above 75 deg F may interfere with sleep. Keep your bedroom as cold as you can during the summer months to enjoy a good night’s rest.

Hello, my dear friends!

Today I show you my project. A renovating a bedroom.
Morning light, beautiful pions on the table, good start of the day. The room looks lighter and more comfortable. I like here that soft colors of the room contrasted with industrial elements. The concept of design was industrial chic. For this project were used the natural materials for flooring and furniture. I really hope that you like it.

1. Bamboo flooring

It is actually a grass that shares similar characteristics as hardwood. It is durable, easy to maintain and is easy to install. Bamboo is sustainable and made from natural vegetation that grows to maturity in three to five years, far less than the twenty year trees can take.

2. Cork flooring

It has anti-microbial properties that reduce allergens in the home, is fire retardant, easy to maintain and acts as a natural insect repellent too. Cork, like wood can be finished in a variety of paints and stains to suit any color scheme or design style. Its durability allows for uses in any part of the house.

5. Reclaimed Hardwood

There are two types of hard wood to consider. Reclaimed wood is ideal as it reuses existing wood from trees that were chopped down a long, long time ago. Salvaged wood flooring can look beautiful in older homes or in a beach cottage.
The other option is to purchase hardwood labeled FSC certified. This is a designation by the Forest Stewardship Council and they promote the responsible management of forests throughout the world with a focus on adhering to high social and environmental standards.
