What are you looking for from your bed? Comfort? Style? Space? Support for your back? The answer is that you are probably looking for something that provides all of the above. A good bed is perhaps the single most important piece of furniture in the home. Unlike some exceptions like Madame Thatcher, who is reported to have sleep only 4 hours per night, the vast majority of us need plenty of sleep to function. Scientists suggest that we should get between 7 and 8 hours of good quality sleep each night to live healthily. If you are sleeping on an uncomfortable bed it is going to be difficult to fulfill your quota. Worse still, the quality of your sleep is likely to be marginalised and you are not going to wake up feeling refreshed in the morning. A good night’s sleep can make a difference when you have a busy day ahead and/ or young children to attend to early in the morning.
Good sleep is achieved by following habits. We help ourselves to feel comfortable and relaxed by keeping to the usual routines. We all have a particular side of bed that we like to sleep on and a particular side or posture that we like to take when ‘falling to sleep’. If you usually sleep on your side, for example, you are probably going to find it difficult to get to sleep on your back. The same rules apply for your bed and a new bed can sometimes take a little while to get used to. Therefore, when you are choosing your bed or headboard, try to go for something that will not take you out of your usual routines. If you usually sleep on a low bed frame that is close to floor level, choose a low bed frame. If you usually place your bed against a wall, choose a frame that can fit the space. The main objective is to create a calm and attractive space that you will find comfortable to sleep in. Our solid wood, Far-East inspired bed frames and head boards are designed to create an air of peace and serenity in your bedroom.
