Keeping the heat out

Curtains and blinds can help your home stay at a comfortable temperature. Thicker curtains keep out the sun’s hot rays and different layers in your windows also help insulate your home. So do cellular blinds, which have a honeycomb structure that traps air, a natural insulator, inside them.

Bed linen that helps keep the temperature right

Many types of fabric can help you stay comfortable in bed. Cotton, viscose, and lyocell, for example, transport moisture away from your body, helping you maintain a nice, even temperature. Linen is highly breathable and heat conducting, keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer.

Lie down and cool off

REXBEGONIA cooling pads and ROSENVIAL mattress protectors could be ideal if you’re too warm to sleep. They both make you feel cooler and you can even pop the cooling pad into your fridge before you use it, to increase the cooling effect. You can put it on a chair, too, as well as in your bed or pillowcase.

Cool comfort for your head, too

KLUBBSPORRE ergonomic pillows and KVARNVEN ergonomic pillows give you great comfort and support to help you sleep like a baby. And they both also have one special side that cools your head down if you’re too warm.

Some ice could be useful

When the heat is on, a colander full of ice comes in very handy for soothing washcloths, cold drinks, a frozen-water bottle (like a hot-water bottle, only the opposite), and more. It’s a good idea to collect the melted water in a bowl so it doesn’t make a mess.
