Help & Advice

How to choose the right bed for you...

The information presented on these pages is not designed to be a definitive bed buying guide. Our intention is to provide you with some general information, explain the terminology and construction of beds without blinding you with science and to give you some experience-based opinion in order to help you make an informed choice in the purchase of your new bed.

All the divan sets and mattresses in our recommended "Best Buy" range have been given our own firmness rating, but please remember that this firmness rating is based on a person of average weight. Persons of a greater than average weight may require a firmer bed, while those of a lower than average weight may require a softer bed. Remember also that this is subjective and many people will have a preference for a soft, medium, firm, or even a hard bed.

When shopping for a bed, it is always better to look for the best value you can get for your money, rather than the lowest price tag. There are, of course, some lower priced beds which are perfectly acceptable. However, generally speaking, the better the construction and the higher the quality of materials used, the more support and comfort your bed will give you. A better quality bed will also last longer and will give greater performance in its later years of life. So our advice would always be to spend as much as you can afford on the bed you are going to sleep in every night – it will pay you much greater dividends in terms of quality of sleep.
