Out With The Old And In With The New…Bed!

How to buy a new bed

The New Year signifies a time of change and transformation, offering us the chance to discard those things that hold us back.

For many the New Year encourages us to kick bad habits and establish new routines, from getting fit, eating healthier, to getting more and better sleep

Most adults need between six and nine hours of sleep every night and yet almost two-thirds of us suffer from sleep problems.

Buy the right bed and you could be buying into night after night of quality sleep,” says Lisa Artis of The Sleep Council. “Anyone who has ever slept in a really comfortable or really dreadful old bed will know how it can affect the quality of sleep.”

If you know you need a new bed, but are unsure what you want or what suits you best, check out The Sleep Council’s guide to the questions you should be asking yourself… Continue reading

Bed and Mattress Trends

Bed and Mattress Developments

Beds and mattresses have come a long way from their humble origins when people slept on a simple base of straw or other natural material. Over the centuries we have witnessed significant developments in the bed and mattress market.  With a range of mattress options now available including continuous/open spring mattresses, pocket sprungmemory foamlatex and orthopaedic mattresses to the latest ‘it’ item in the bedding industry, the gel mattress, there’s a model to suit every taste and style.

Buying a new bed is an important investment especially when we consider that we spend a third of our life in it. Getting a good night’s sleep is essential to our health, well-being and productivity. The right bed and mattress ensures we wake up refreshed and ready for the day ahead. According to research conducted by sleep expert, Dr Chris Idzikowski, sleeping in an uncomfortable bed could cost us up to an hour’s sleep a night. With The Sleep Council recommending we change our beds every seven years, it’s worth taking the time to buy the best bed and mattress you can afford. So, what are consumers looking for and demanding from their bed and mattress?

Latest Trends 

Bigger is better – the trend for bigger beds is growing. People are now opting for King Size and Super King Size beds so that they have more room to stretch out during sleep which makes disturbing a partner at night a thing of the past.  As The Sleep Council recently stated: [in] a standard double bed (135cm/4ft 6in) each person gets just 2ft 3in of space – less than a baby in a cot. Buying bigger is definitely better for a undisturbed night’s sleep.

Newer mattress types such as gel-infused memory foam mattresses have been brought to the attention of consumers as they sleep cooler than beds without gel. A great example of this is the Kaymed Gel Plaza 1200 Pocket Gel Divan Bed. Incorporating Kaymed’s revolutionary K3Gel technology this bed is clinically proven to sleep 3 degrees cooler than standard foam.

Latex mattresses have gained popularity over the last number of years and it is anticipated they will continue to do so throughout the coming years. Latex Mattresses, also known as Talalay Mattresses, are a premium bedding product. Derived from the sap of a rubber tree, Latex Mattresses have a distinctive, resilient feel which is incredibly durable and provides long lasting comfort and spinal support. Helping to disperse body moisture, latex also has anti-microbial properties, inhibiting bacteria, fungi and dust mites, benefiting those with allergies or respiratory problems.

The Spring Interior Bed still remains the most popular choice in the UK and Ireland.  Latest technological developments have seen bed manufacturers combine Spring Technology with layers of memory foam, gel, latex and other luxury finishes to create even better sleeping solutions for the future.

Products such as the Respa Platinum Mattress is a great example of this.  This fully hand-sprung model combines Pocket Springs with Talalay Latex, Italian Cashmere and Irish Lambswool for luxurious comfort and a healthier sleeping environment. This demand for healthier sleep solutions has also seen consumers opt for more natural products. As the bed industry becomes more environmentally friendly, we’ll see more natural hybrid beds and mattresses being introduced into the market.

Adjustable beds have been around for a number of years, but as the bedroom becomes a more multi-functional space consumers are looking for more modern rather than medical-looking products. Electric adjustable beds allow sleepers to adjust their mattress to their preferred elevation for more comfortable leisure activities such as reading, having breakfast in bed, watching TV or even to work on their laptop.

The Respa Flotation Comfort Electric Bed highlights this blend perfectly. With its stylish design including a choice of surround and headboard colour, this model also provides an ideal solution for those with Mobility Difficulties. Incorporating an inner pocket sprung unit with 35mm of Luxurious Memory Foam this electric bed provides individual Support for Head, Neck, Upper and Lower Back, Thighs and Feet.

What is evident though, is that both Bed and Mattress Manufacturers and Retailers are more aware of environmental concerns and the need for better recycling of old beds and mattresses. At Dalzells we provide a Free Collection and Recycling of Your Old Bed service throughout Northern Ireland, and Counties Monaghan, Louth and Dublin, in the Republic of Ireland. What’s more, we’ll also unpack and set-up and place your New Divan Bed or Mattress in a room of your choosing and dispose of all the packaging.
