This month is National Bed Month, so what better time analyse your sleep and see if your bed needs a refresh!

There are some signs to look out for that could mean your bed is on its way out, and all of these could be affecting the overall quality of your sleep.


Finding the Right Mattress for You

Getting a great night’s sleep is important for not only your health but it will also improve your mood the next day. In order to help you get the best night’s sleep possible, you need a great mattress – everyone is different so you need to find the best mattres for you. In this blog we explore a few aspects of a mattress which you should consider before buying.

The Cost

One of the biggest complaints when buying a mattress is the price, but a higher price doesn’t necessarily mean a better night’s sleep. The average price for a good quality mattress is between £500 and £1200. Although they are more expensive mattresses on the market, the majority of these have the same quality of cushioning and support as the more affordable mattresses.


How to Get a Good Night’s Sleep

More and more often, people are understanding the importance of sleep as part of a healthy lifestyle. In this article, we’re sharing some tips to help you get a good night’s sleep:


When trying to sleep, it helps if you aren’t too hot or too cold. A way to ensure this is to purchase suitable bedding for the winter and for the summer. If you’re too hot, you may find that you get restless in the night, and if you’re too cold, you may find that you are unable to fall asleep.

Your mattress can play a big part in temperature regulation also. Mattresses with natural materials will be the best for this.


If your bed is not comfortable, you will not get a good night’s sleep. Ideally you need comfort, space and support from your bed to give you the best rest possible.

Which mattress you should get will vary from person to person due to their body shape and weight and also due to personal preference. When testing mattresses before purchase, ensure that you try one with a base similar to yours at home or you may feel like you’ve made the wrong choice once you get it home and realise how different it feels.

It is recommended that you replace your mattress after 7 years of use to ensure that comfort, support and cleanliness can be improved. (more…)

How Your Bed Affects Your Sleep

On average, we spend around a third of our lives asleep, and we require a fair amount comfort and support to make this possible. A mattress that is old or cheap will not provide you with the necessary support required to prevent any aches and pains, nor will it provide the comfort required to improve the overall quality of your sleep, so it may be time for you to invest in a bed that will give you a great night’s sleep every single night.

According to the Sleep Census, 46% of people wake up in the night due to an uncomfortable bed. This means that nearly half of all people in the 5 countries that were surveyed are not getting a good night’s sleep due to something as fundamental as their bed. People with good quality sleep see many benefits, such as improved mental performance, sped-up weight loss and reduced stress levels. They are also able to fight off illness better and will have improved relationships with friends, family and co-workers. (more…)
