A Buyer's Guide to Bedding

Follow this guide from Forty Winks to give your bedroom a makeover. 

The bedroom is a place to rest and unwind and a good night’s sleep is crucial to total wellbeing. A comfortable mattress and bedroom setting is an essential ingredient to sleeping restfully, but getting it right can be an overwhelming and a difficult task.

“A number of factors affect how long your mattress will continue to provide optimum comfort and support. Indeed, its useful lifespan will vary considerably depending on its quality; its frequency of use; the wear & tear it receives and how well it’s been cared for," says Forty Winks Group Manager, Kara Norris .

As a general rule however, even a good quality mattress, with normal use, should not be expected to last more than around 7-10 years.

“Be sure to do plenty of research to know the different options available and always head in-store to talk to a bedding expert before making the final purchase," says Kara. 

“Updating the bedroom can be easily achieved through a few simple design updates. Clever colour selections and complimenting surrounding furniture and furnishings can transform a dull and uninviting space into a bedroom sanctuary,” says Kara.

Forty Winks bedroom makeover tips:

·         Bring the outdoors inside with fresh plants, open windows and plenty of light.  
·         Consider clever storage solutions which maximise space.
·         When choosing colour, consider tones that make you feel comfortable and complement bed linen, carpets, curtains and soft furnishings.
·         Introduce an accent wall behind the bed for a feature.
·         Consider the bed linen theming you have chosen. You can highlight some colours from your linen to tie in the whole setting together.
·         Accessorising with pillows and throws is a great way to introduce bursts of colour.
