Want a new bed? New pillows? New quilts? New bedding?
Buy a new bed online for less - and sleep better.
You spend a third of your life in bed! So why not buy the best bed
you can afford?
Feng Shui puts importance on the direction your bed head points and
that sleeping with your feet to the door is bad!
In some cultures the feet of the bed will be placed in bowls of salt
to ward off evil spirits.
When you're selling a house making the bed look really lovely has become
more important. It's no longer enough to iron the duvet cover you need
to dress the bed with luxury cushions and throws.
Do you sleep badly? Does your bed creak and groan when you roll over?
Is your mattress saggy or poking springs into your back? If you've not
had a new mattress for 10 years then it's almost certainly time to buy
yourself a new bed.
You spend one third of your day in bed - so why don't you make the
most of this time by having a comfortable bed that supports you properly
and allows you to get a good nights sleep? We function better after
a good night's sleep.
When you sleep better you feel better during the day. When you feel
better you work better. Imagine feeling fantastic every morning when
you wake up! Imagine waking up and feeling like you've had the best
night sleep ever! That could be you if you invest some money in a new
You can have sleep problems caused by stress, illness or physical discomfort.
If your mattress is uncomfortable then how will you sleep well?
The benefits of a new bed include a better nights sleep. A new bed
will be comfortable, clean and made with more modern materials. You
can buy a new style bed, a bigger mattress, or a high quality mattress
that'll improve your sleep.
By buying a new bed you'll achieve all these benefits instantly - one
might say overnight!
Another good reason to get a new mattress is the fact your old one
will be home to millions of dust mites and lots of old skin cells. You
also lose 0.24L of sweat every night - so your mattress absorbs some
of this. Dust mites can cause major allergies for people, and although
there are things you can do to get rid of them, the simplest and quickest
way is to buy a new mattress.
If you think about the cost of a bed over its lifetime - say 10 years
then the cost per night is minimal. A £500 bed would only be about
13p a night over 10 years - not much when you think about it. A £300
is only 8p per night!

Making the bed - How to make a bed look beautiful
The first step to creating a beautiful bed is to pick the right bedding
and use a mix of fabric styles and colours and textures. Smooth satins
look lovely against contrasting smooth sheets or throws. if you have
matching pillow cases then don't have these as the bottom or top pillows
- use a plain one perhaps on the bottom, then the matching one and then
another plain but maybe coloured one on top. This contrast adds to the
appeal of the bed and additional small roll pillows can also be placed
on the bed.
A folded throw can be used to add colour and contrast. Sometimes a
second throw in a different but similar toned colour can look very attractive.
Sometimes old style fabrics and eiderdowns can be used to make a bed
very stylish. beautiful quilts and comforters are available in designs
and colours not always available in modern colours.
Often in showrooms they'll use special padding to ensure the bed looks
extra comfortable and styled.
A bed is supposed to support your body as you sleep. If your mattress
does not support you or supports you unevenly your muscles will not
eb able to relax properly and you will wake tired and uncomfortable.
A pocket sprung mattress has the springs in separate "pockets"
wihtin the mattress which enables them to act independently of each
other. An ordinary sprung mattress has the springs all fixed together
and so there is more give which can cause problems if your partner is
a different weight to you, you may roll together.
