A good night’s sleep

A GOOD night’s sleep is more important than most people realise. The health benefits are endless, and so are the negatives of not getting enough.

This is quite relevant to me at the moment, because, with this heat and a newborn baby, the lack of sleep is not letting me think of much else!So, having a nice comfortable bed and mattress to sleep on is essential, but choosing a mattress isn’t always easy.

The thing to consider, when buying a new mattress, is the support; it should support your spine, whether you are lying on your back or your side. Try them out in the shop, and ask for a pillow. Lay how you would at home. Going in a shop and sitting on the mattress does not tell you how comfortable it is. There are various types of mattresses, and price ranges.

Here are some of the most common types:

Open coil: these are sprung mattresses made from one continuous wire. They can offer different levels of firmness, and are in the more economical range.

Pocket sprung: these are higher-quality, sprung mattresses. Pocket sprung means that each spring is individually packed in its own pocket, keeping the mattress firm, and adapting to each person’s weight.

Memory foam: a very popular choice of material which is very comfortable because it molds to the body, distributing body weight evenly. Personally I don’t think there is any need for a complete memory-foam mattress; a combination of pocket sprung and memory foam is perfect, having the memory foam as the top layer. This way, you get the best of both worlds. The combination is called a hybrid mattress.

Bed linen also makes a great difference, and there is nothing better than good-quality sheets, especially in this heat. I recommend Egyptian cotton, to keep you cool and comfortable. Then, of course, comes the dressing of the bed.

There is nothing more attractive and eye-catching than a well-dressed bed! I know some people can disagree, and find nothing more irritating than having to throw all the cushions off at bed time, but I think it’s a small price to pay.

Comfort may be the priority, but the fun bit is to make it look luxurious by adding layers with throws, runners, different textures and colours, loose cushions … bliss!
