How to Choose your Bed
Try! We always recommend that you visit our store to try out a bed before purchasing it.
Feeling numb? A good way to check if the bed you are lying on is too soft, too hard, or just right is to lie on your back, placing your hand in the small of your back and then trying to move it about. If it moves too easily, the bed may be too hard for you; if it's a struggle to move your hand, then the bed is too soft. If you can move your hand with just a little resistance, the bed may be just right for you.
Take it easy: take some time out and lie down. You spend a third of your life in bed, so it's vital that you make the right choice.
Roll with it: try the bed in all of the sleeping positions you tend to use, not only on your back, and try a selection of beds for comparison.
It takes two: if you share a bed, take your partner with you. Remember, it's important a new bed suits both of you.
Different Types of Bed
The dimensions of a bedstead are greater than a divan base equivalent, but the mattress size required remains the same.
The mattresses we sell are sized as shown, and our bed linen is made to fit those sizes. Be sure to check that the mattress size - and even the bed linen - is compatible.
Points to Consider
It's worth spending as much as you can afford to get a really good mattress.
