Say Yes To A New Bed This March For National Bed Month

Did you know that March is National Bed Month? It’s our annual awareness event that has been running for more than 20 years and promotes the importance of a good, comfortable bed for a great night’s sleep. Use this month to really look at your bed and see if it’s giving you the best possible night’s sleep. Remember it’s not always about a bed ‘wearing out’ but creating an optimum sleeping environment so you feel good and look good. Here are some deciding factors on whether it’s time for a new bed: – Is the bed seven years old or more? – Would it be embarrassing if neighbours saw it without its covers? – Does it make suspicious noises in the night? – Did you have your best recent night’s sleep in a bed other than yours? – Are you waking up more frequently unrefreshed and aching? – Do you and your partner roll towards each unintentionally in the middle of the night? – Do you have enough space to sleep comfortably? – Is it sagging? – Are the legs or castors worn out? – Does it feel lumpy in the night If you answered Yes to five or more, it’s definitely time for a new mattress! National Bed Month is a great opportunity to grab yourself a bargain as plenty of retailers will be offering some fantastic deals for the awareness event. Make sure you check out our bed buying video or bed advice before you go shopping though. Say Yes to a new bed this March! Lisa – The Sleep Council

    our double divan is about 15 yr old and we have replaced the mattresses (we have two to make it higher for us to get into) but the top one’s springs are now starting to spread and go ping in the night! I swapped it over to the bottom one and got one of those new foam toppers to make it more comfortable. However my husband, who is a very restless sleeper, falls out of bed occasionally and says its because his side slopes! I think its about time we got a new bed, but they are all too low to the floor for us oldies, what do I do?

      We would not normally recommend placing one mattress on top of another as this could lead to unsatisfactory support of the springs which in turn would give less than best performance of the mattress and could result in uneven wear and tear over a period of time.

      Whilst the modern trend is towards low profile beds, many of the more traditional ranges are still high and have very deep mattresses which increase the overall height further. May we suggest you look for brands such as Staples, Somnus or Hampton in a good quality furniture retailer or the bedding department of a store such as John Lewis or House of Fraser.

      Alternatively some companies provide bedsteads with adjustable height legs, try Beds Direct tel 01924 451584; Furmanac tel 01384 408844; Golden Night Beds Company tel 01924 469000; Millbrook Beds tel 0845 373 1111 or Shire Beds tel 01924 439898 for further information and your nearest stockist.
