FAQs - Beds


Q: How often should I change my bed?

A: Of course, that’s up to you. But you should change your mattress when it starts to wear – an old mattress will not support your body, and you will sleep badly and wake up with aches and pains.

Q: Can a good bed really improve your sleep?

A: Yes. A supportive bed with a comfortable mattress prevents your body from sagging when you are asleep, which in turn minimises the amount you toss and turn.

Q: Should I buy a divan or a framed bed?

A: Again, it’s a personal choice that has a lot to do with the look of your room. Divans are upholstered box with built-in drawers which give handy storage space, but many people are choosing framed beds as a fashion statement.

Q: What size?

A: That depends on two things – how big your room is and how much space you like when you sleep. We even know of customers who buy a king-size bed because their kids jump in with them during the night and they need the space!

Q: Twin or double?

A: Again, it depends on how you sleep. Some couples say they sleep better apart – perhaps one partner turns over a lot, or snores – while others prefer to snuggle.

Q: Do children need good beds?

A: Just as much as you do – even kids can wake up with a sore back! Make sure the bed you buy is robust to stand up to climbing and jumping, and has a good supportive mattress.

Q: Is price important?

A: There are a lot of beds around at the moment that manage to combine strength, durability and low prices, so you don’t need to spend a fortune.

Q: What’s your top fashion tip?

A: Faux leather is a real hot ticket at the moment – it’s reasonably priced, but has the luxe appeal of real leather. Very chic in a contemporary room.
