Bed Buying Guide

We believe the most important thing about buying a bed, is that you find it comfortable. When you think of how much time we spend in bed, this really is the number one priority.

We do not believe in giving our beds different comfort levels or advertising the spring count, as this should not effect your decisions when purchasing a new bed. Beds must be tried to see if they are a good fit for you. We encourage our customers to spend as much time as they like, trying our lovely beds!

We supply beds from two manufacturers - Sealy and Hypnos. Each manufacturer offers a wide range of models with various fillings and tensions. Our beds come in a choice of sizes, zip and link and special sizes upon request. Zip and Link is a great option if you want to have a mattress with two different tensions. They can also be ordered in a larger size of 200x200cm and they make delivery a little easier, as they come in two separate pieces.

Did you know that the base you choose will also effect the comfort of your mattress? Sprung slats or divans will give the mattress a softer feel, whilst a platform top divan or non sprung slats will offer a much firmer feel.

Do you suffer from allergies? We can advise you on the best mattress for you. We can even source a bed suitable for vegans.


We also have a range of electric adjustable beds, with one available to try in our showroom.


Turning your mattress - We would advise you to rotate and turn your mattress weekly for the first 6 months and then once a month there after. This ensures even wear from the beginning, which will help your mattress last longer. If you are looking for a non-turn mattress, we can also supply these. We would advise you to still rotate the mattress weekly and then once a month after the first 6 months.

How long should your mattress last? A mattress should be changed every 8-10 years. Leaving it longer than this will mean you could be sleeping on the springs and damaging your spine.

With so many options and choices we would always say to come into our showroom to try all of our beds and we will happily advise you, based on your requirements.
