When is The Best Time Of Year To Start Using Your Summer Duvet Tog?

Posted on by Sleep Expert

Summer is coming, finally! To celebrate the return of the sun, we are looking at all the best ways to get your bedroom summer-ready. In the warmer months, it can be much harder to fall asleep. The sun rises a lot earlier, and if you don’t have black-out curtains or blinds, it could mean that you are also getting up much sooner. Not to mention how much the heat can also prevent us from falling asleep. In this article, we will be looking at what is considered a summer tog duvet, when to swap out your bedding for lighter ones, and some other changes you can make to get your bedroom ready for summer. 

What is Considered a ‘Summer Tog’?

Goose Down Duvet

Are you finding yourself tossing and turning at night? As it gets hotter, you may be finding it increasingly difficult to fall asleep. The night air can be humid and stagnant, causing us to have an uncomfortable evening at times. Being too hot at night is a common disturbance and can really affect our sleeping schedule. When it comes to your duvet, you want to ensure that you are using one that will help you combat this problem.

But what is considered a summer tog? Typically, a high-summer tog will range between 2-4.5. For any duvet with this tog, you will find that it’s much lighter and breathable, promising you a much more comfortable night’s sleep. We also recommend looking for natural fillings as well. Some of the best are silk or cotton.


When To Switch To A Lighter Duvet

The next common question is, when do you switch out to a lighter duvet? With the British weather constantly changing, you don’t want to be sweating throughout the night one day, then shivering the next. It’s important that you keep an eye on the ever-changing forecast and only swap your duvet out when you are sure the sun is here to stay. 

Of course, there are alternatives to this! You can grab yourself a four-seasons, or all-seasons duvet which will see you throughout the whole year. Or instead of swapping out your duvet for a lighter one straight away, you can settle for a 4.5 tog one which will be cooler than your heavy winter one, but still, be breathable if the air is to get humid. 

Other Changes You Can Make To Get Your Bedroom Summer Ready
