National Bed Month

By Sharon Dalzell @Dalzells_Beds

National Bed Month

As Spring approaches The Sleep Council, through its Bed Month campaign, reminds us that it might be time to be thinking about giving grotty old mattresses their marching orders – and invest in a better night’s sleep with a comfortable new bed.

Considering we spend a third of our life in bed, getting a good night’s sleep is essential to our health, well-being and productivity. Sleeping on the the right mattress ensures that we wake up refreshed.

The average lifespan of a mattress is around 7 years so it’s worth spending as much as you can afford to get a good quality, comfortable bed.

Not sure whether your bed’s up to scratch, then take the simple Bed MOT Test. This two-minute-test will help determine whether it’s time to buy a new bed.

If you answer ‘Yes’ to three questions, you’re not getting the best possible night’s sleep. Five or more ‘Yes’ answers and it’s time to buy a new bed.

Bed MOT Test

  1. Is the mattress seven years old or more?
  2. Would it be embarrassing if neighbours saw it without its covers?
  3. Does it make suspicious noises in the night?
  4. Did you have your best recent night’s sleep in a bed other than yours?
  5. Are you waking up more frequently unrefreshed and aching?
  6. Do you and your partner roll towards each unintentionally in the middle of the night?
  7. Do you have enough space to sleep comfortably?
  8. Is it sagging?
  9. Does it feel lumpy in the night?
  10. Is the bed too small to give an undisturbed night’s sleep?
  11. Is the divan or base uneven or sagging?
  12. Are the legs and castors worn out?
