To enjoy great sleep, having a bed that is well matched to your body type and sleep habits is crucial, yet so often people rush this important purchase. So take your time, try several different models, and ask as many questions as you need to when you visit a Sleepyhead retailer. Most of all, don’t think of your purchase as an expense – but an investment in a new you – physically, mentally and spiritually. Our Sleep Selector is a useful tool to help you identify what you need and match you to a great bed. If you like to research and compare check out our Bed Range which gives you detailed information about the different beds in our range. While you’re researching, we suggest you find out more about the pillow options. Most people don’t realise how important having the right pillow is to a great night’s sleep. A sleep solution with the combination of the right bed and pillow for you will truly transform how you sleep.
Everyone has their own comfort preferences and Sleepyhead has a wide range of beds to cater to every unique need and comfort preference. Many of our beds feature a pillow top which adds a soft cocooning comfort layer to your bed. The internal foam and spring technology within a bed gives your body the support it needs to get a great sleep, whilst the pillow top creates the softness on the top of the bed. Everyone’s preference is different, so have a think as to whether you prefer a shallower comfort layer or a deeper comfort layer that will contour to your body. Nothing beats experiencing a bed in person so when you’re in store make sure you check out the different comfort layer options in your bed choice.
A great sleep needs a great pillow. The right pillow will work in unison with your mattress while supporting your head & neck, to assist with spinal alignment. With 25% of your bed to body contact body being with your pillow it’s vital to ensure your pillow provides the right level of comfort and support. We have a range of heights & feels to choose from so you can pick the best fit for your mattress.
To keep your sleeping area hygienic, invest in a protector for your mattress. This will ensure your mattress has a longer lasting life & you sleep on a healthier sleep surface. Pick one with more cushioning to add an extra layer to your bed, or pick a protector that maintains the feel of your mattress with the same protection.
There’s nothing quite like the feel of crisp, cool, new sheets and the right sheets are a vital ingredient in the perfect night’s sleep. Thread counts and fabric types are often used to confuse consumers. Thread counts advertised in excess of 500 are commonly created by spinning multiple lower-grade cotton threads together, the result can often be sheets that wear far quicker and pill far easier than quality sheets with a lower thread count.
Duvets are not only there for warmth & comfort, but with the right choice your duvet can help keep your sleep area healthy & your body at the right temperature. Consider the fibres & fills of your duvet and pick one that suits your sleeping needs.
After this time, if used regularly, a bed may have deteriorated by as much as 75% from its original condition.
Dampness and water absorption within a mattress will also reduce the quality of your sleep and the bed feeling cold to sleep in. We lose as much as 500mls of moisture a night that goes directly into your mattress. Sleepyhead’s commitment to innovation has included research and investment in fabrics that promote drier sleep. Mattresses are also the ideal home for dust mites and can cause irritation and restless nights for those that are allergy sensitive or have asthma.
The more room you have in your bed the better quality of sleep you will have, especially if you’re sleeping with a partner. Space around you helps promote undisturbed sleep. Two people sleeping together should select at least a queen and preferably a king or super king size bed to give you adequate space for. It also pays to take into account younger family members who may end up sharing your bed. They may be little, but they can take up a surprising amount of space!
Interrupted sleep caused by your partner moving around during the night is a common occurrence for many of us. We have different technologies such as Sensorzone and Swisstek which help to minimise this partner disturbance. If this is an important consideration for you, make sure you let your salesperson know.
There are other things that you may want to consider, as they may influence your choice of bed. Have a think about how important these things are so you can discuss them in-store with your sales person.
Wear loose fitting clothing that’s comfy and easy to get up and off the beds. You don’t sleep with your shoes on so feel free to remove your shoes if you want to.
If you sleep with a partner, it’s best to try the beds together. Move positions while your partner lies in their most comfortable position. This will enable you to determine how effective the bed is at minimising partner disturbance. Make sure you give a chance to focus on your individual needs and how the bed feels for you.
