Catch some Z’s in Style

Before you go all in and splurge on a new bed, let’s ensure you’re armed with all the knowledge you need to make a savvy decision.

In honour of World Sleep Day, we’ve got your back (literally) with a guide on what to remember when you’re in the market for a new bed. And while we’re doling out advice, let’s take a trip down memory lane and revisit some of our previously showcased bedrooms (below)

Choosing the right bed is a major life decision – you’ll spend a third of your existence in it, after all! Before you take the leap, here are some key factors to remember to ensure you make a dreamy decision.


While weight and build are important considerations, a larger bed means less partner disturbance and a more restful sleep! Trust us, a double bed may seem spacious enough for two, but a king-size bed is where it’s at for ultimate relaxation and the sweetest of dreams.


A good night’s sleep can make all the difference between feeling like a zombie or a superhero the next day! But when it comes to finding the perfect bed, it’s all about personal preferences. For some, a firm mattress is the holy grail of comfort, while others prefer to sink into a cloud-like softness. It’s like Goldilocks and the Three Bears, except there are seven billion bears, and they all want a different bed!

Getting a good night’s sleep is not just a luxury; it’s a necessity for maintaining physical and mental health. And let’s be real, a comfortable bed with the perfect mattress is the VIP ticket to achieving that. Don’t underestimate the power of a supportive mattress that’ll cradle your body in all the right places and leave you feeling like you just woke up from a 5-star hotel nap.


If you think about it, we spend about a third of our lives in bed, so it’s not surprising that investing in a good mattress is crucial for our well-being. It’s like choosing a good pair of shoes – you want something that fits well and provides support. And just like shoes, the right pillow can make all the difference in preventing pain in the neck (literally). So if you’re ready to upgrade your sleep game, go for a mattress and pillow that make you feel like you’re sleeping on a cloud – without the risk of falling off.

When it comes to testing out a bed, don’t be shy – think of it as a sleep audition! You wouldn’t hire a performer without seeing them in action, so why settle for a bed without trying it out? Get cosy, and don’t be afraid to roll around a bit; finding the right fit for your body type is the most important thing.


The right bed is crucial if you suffer from a debilitating medical condition. Your bed should be supportive, cushiony, and able to alleviate the pressure off your affected areas. If that’s not enough, throw in a built-in massage therapy system to help you say goodbye to all your health woes.


Sure, a bed’s primary function is to keep you comfy while you catch some z’s, but let’s not forget about the aesthetics! Whether you’re into classic or contemporary, there are bed styles out there to fit your personal flair. And don’t even get me started on the decorative headboards – these can really make a statement and tie your whole bedroom together. If you’re feeling fancy, check out the modern, low-profile beds – they’ll make you feel like you’re sleeping on a cloud.

Hopefully, we’ve given you some handy insights into the world of bed shopping. Keep these tips close by; you never know when they’ll come in handy! So go ahead and rest easy, have some sweet dreams, and a very happy World Sleep Day to all the sleep lovers out there!
