Relax! March is National Bed Month
According to research, more than 50% of people cite the reason for replacing their old bed is that it’s broken! And Sleep Council research suggests another third replace their beds because their old one is uncomfortable. Most people spend one third of their lives asleep, so it’s worth getting this important piece of furniture right to ensure a peaceful night’s sleep. And National Bed Month (1st-31st March) is the ideal time to do it.
If your bed looks tired and saggy, if you don't wake up feeling as refreshed as you did a year ago, or if you wake up with pains that disappear over the course of the day, then it's probably time to change your bed. The recommended life span for a bed or mattress is 7-10 years but with so many great designs and new technologies to choose from who can blame you for changing them more often!
So where should you start when looking for a new bed?
“It partly depends what sort of budget you've got,” explains Jessica Alexander from The Sleep Council. “You can buy a new (double) bed for under £100 - or spend several thousands. But you do tend to get what you pay for so it’s worth investing as much as you can afford.”
