The best sheets for hot sleepers that feel luxurious all night long

If you run warm at night, you know how frustrating it can be to wake up in a pile of sweaty sheets. Not only can it impact how much sleep you get but it can affect the quality of your sleep as well. The good news is there have been many advancements in bed sheets and sheet materials to help you stay cool and comfortable. Gone are the days of tossing and turning or sticking one foot out to regulate your body temperature. Here are our favorite bed sheets for hot sleepers that will help you wake up dry and refreshed.

What is the coolest material for bed sheets?

It’s important to understand which materials will help you stay cool and dry. Linen, percale, and eucalyptus fabrics tend to be the most moisture wicking and will keep you at an even body temperature all night long.

  • Linen is a breathable fabric and will trap less heat than, say, a cotton or flannel sheet.
  • Percale sheets have a tighter weave than most, making them feel crisp and cooler than other fabrics.
  • Eucalyptus sheets help regulate your body’s temperature and are “hypoallergenic and resistant to bacterial growth,” according to Heathline.

What sheets do you use for hot sleepers?

Brooklinen Linen Core Sheet Set

If you want a seriously luxurious sleep, you have to check out Brooklinen products. We love their Core sheet set for these reasons:

  • Made from 100% linen
  • Lightweight and soft
  • Washes like a dream
  • Comes in a variety of colors

Buffy Eucalyptus Sheet Set

Another ideal option for hot sleepers is this sheet set from Buffy. Their eucalyptus sheet is made from “300-single-ply-thread-count sateen-weave fabric woven from lyocell fiber,” and they are amazing because they’re:

  • Made from natural materials
  • Cool to the touch and naturally breathable
  • Moisture wicking
  • Come in a variety of colors

Slumber Cloud Essential Sheet Set

Slumber Cloud makes it their business to be the best choice when it comes to temperature-controlled sheets. They are more expensive than Brooklinen or Buffy, but with over 1,000 five-star reviews, the cost is more than worth it. Here’s why we love them:

  • Made from temperature-controlled “NASA-approved” fabric
  • Moisture wicking, so no stains or smells
  • Super soft
  • Comes in a variety of colors

Parachute Percale Sheet Set

Finally, Parachute makes a luxuriously soft sheet from percale. These 100% Egyptian cotton sheets are a fan favorite and have thousands of top reviews for these reasons:

  • Crisp and lightweight
  • Durable and washes well
  • Continues to soften with use
  • Comes in a variety of colors

There have been tons of advances in how fabric is made to achieve temperature-controlled sheets. This is important since research shows that night sweats affect 10 to 41% of people. Not only is it annoying but it makes for a restless night’s sleep.

Finding sheets that work for you can make your slumber much more enjoyable, and you’ll wake up less tired and uncomfortable. While there are many reasons for sweating at night — metabolism, mattress material, room temperature, and medications — the good news is investing in any of the sheets above will dramatically reduce your night sweats and leave you feeling fresh and ready to take on the day.

These are the best plants to put in your shower for a nature-inspired sanctuary
Adding a plant to your shower benefits both you and the plant
Bathroom with orange walls

Bathroom plants are a rising trend, and for good reason. Who wouldn't want to add a touch of refined nature or create a cozy farmhouse feel in their bathroom? Placing a plant in the shower, however, might seem a bit odd. The truth is, there are many benefits to having a plant in your shower, both for you and for the plant itself. We're going to discuss some of these benefits, and we're going to give you some ideas for the best plants to put in your shower. Once you've added a touch of nature to your shower, you'll wonder why you didn't do it sooner.

Why put plants in your shower?
Above and beyond adding a bit of color to your dim shower, there are some health and environmental benefits to keeping plants in your shower.
Less unwanted moisture
It's no secret that bathrooms tend to be hot spots for humidity. Excessive amounts of moisture, however, can have some adverse effects. Mold can grow around your bathroom, the paint on the walls can peel, and certain nasty bugs are attracted to moist places. A shower plant can help reduce unwanted moisture in your bathroom and minimize some of these issues. Since plants need water, they suck it right out of the air, providing the added benefit of not having to water the plant as often.
Cleaner air
You probably know that plants pull carbon dioxide out of the air and emit oxygen, right? But did you know that while this process is taking place, the plant is also filtering the air and pulling toxins out of it? With all of the cleaning products, hair products, and other nasty molecules that leave toxins in your bathroom's air, having a shower plant will allow you to breathe a bit easier and healthier.
Mental health benefits
Having indoor plants comes with numerous health benefits, but the most significant are the benefits to your mental health. We all know that plants are therapeutic, and studies have shown that plants help with stress relief, energy boosts, and even increased concentration and productivity. Why not reap all these mental health benefits right at the start of your day while you shower in the morning?
Elevated decor
Let's face it, indoor plants are beautiful, and they add so much charm and character to any room. Why not apply that same philosophy to your bathroom and shower? Having a plant in your shower is not only trendy and aesthetically pleasing, but it will leave you feeling like you're showering in the tropics.
The plants love it
Putting a plant in the shower not only benefits you, but it also benefits the plant itself. Many plants thrive in humid environments, so you'll see them flourish in your bathroom. If you tend to forget to water your plants for long periods of time, having them in an already moist area will allow you to feel less guilty about neglecting them.
