We all know that a good night’s sleep is vital to our general health and wellbeing and that the right bed is more than just another piece of furniture.

The right bed means rest and relaxation and ensures that we get enough good-quality shut-eye so we can greet every new day feeling restored and energised. It is also the centrepiece to the bedroom – possibly the most luxurious and calming room in the house. So choosing the right bed for your needs is very important.

Stratford’s Carpetwise Curtainwise Furniturewise will soon be adding a brand new department to their one-stop-shop store, and will be supplying three of the UK’s most popular brands - Hypnos, Sealy and Silentnight, amongst others – so there will be plenty of top quality choices on offer.

Award-winning Hypnos Beds combine pressure-relieving pocket springs and layers of natural materials with Royally approved craftsmen. They have been making bespoke made-to-measure beds for over 100 years and focus on the pursuit of perfection and the delivery of a fulfilling night’s sleep.

Sealy BedSealy Bed

Sealy is the biggest bed-brand in the world and operates in over 50 countries. It has been in the UK for more than 40 years and their mission is to help their customers become deeper sleepers with a variety of options from beds with storage to hypoallergenic beds in a variety of sizes.

With over 60 year’s experience in the UK, Silentnight offer a wide range of beds and mattresses from single to king-size, divan beds with different options, and a choice of mattresses including pocket spring and memory foam.

When you visit the showroom in search of that perfect bed, what should you take into account?

A mattress needs to be firm enough to support you but also should conform to your body’s contours, so check how it feels by lying down on it in the shop. If it’s for two of you, test it at the same time to make sure there is enough space to rest and move, and that you are both comfortable with the same type.

The main kinds are natural fibre, pocket-sprung and memory foam. If you get hot at night, natural fibres such as horsehair, wool, cotton and down are best. If this is not an issue synthetic memory foam is just as good.

Once you have chosen that perfect bed, you can also buy a a guaranteed for 10 years mattress protector, bed linen and bedroom furniture at the same time in the department which will be opening in September.
