Untitled-1Is it time you bought a new bed?

Take the test! If you answer yes to any of these questions, you should certainly consider buying a new bed:

  • Is your bed more than ten years old?
  • Can you feel springs or ridges in the mattress?
  • Do you or your partner disturb each other when changing sleep positions?
  • Does your mattress dip or sag where you or your partner lies?
  • Do you and your partner end up rolling towards each other during the night?
  • Do you often wake up tired even after a good seven or eight hours sleep?
  • Do you need more space to sleep easily?
  • Do you often get a better night’s sleep away from home?
  • Does your mattress feel lumpy?
  • Does it make noises when you move during the night?
  • Does it look used or worn?
  • Are the base, legs or castors lumpy, worn or wobbly?
  • And finally – would it be embarrassing if anyone saw it without its covers!

Things to consider when choosing your new bed

It’s essential you get a chance to try out your new bed before you commit to buying it – you’ll be spending a lot of time in it so you need to make sure it’s absolutely right for you! Here are a few tips to ensure you make the right choice:

  • Always lie down in your normal sleeping position.
  • Buy it for comfort and support – not firmness alone.
  • Think big – larger beds can be more comfortable.
  • A bed is a base and a mattress – don’t think of them in isolation.
  • You get what you pay for so try to spend as much as you can afford.
