A good bed regularly replaced can make a big difference to how well we sleep, but if you’re not sure whether you do need a new bed or not, try our simple Bed MOT (Mattress Obsolescence Test!) today.
With normal wear and tear a bed should last around seven years – but our quick Bed MOT can help to determine if your bed has had its day – and night! It’s a two-minute test that should be done every year after the first three to five years; and every six months after that.
Research shows buying a new bed can lead to a real improvement in sleep – up to an hour extra – and if you sleep better, you feel much better. Remember to buy as big as you can, spend as much as you can afford, and look out for the National Bed Federation’s Approved big tick logo to ensure you’re buying a product that is safe, clean, and honest.
The right bed is extremely important to health and wellbeing because our sleeping environment will affect the quality of our sleep – which in turn has a big effect on how well we feel, both physically and psychologically. A bed with the correct support, comfort, and space will ensure you wake less, move about less, are less disturbed by your partner and are less likely to wake up feeling tired or aching.
Ideally try before you buy, as comfort and support are all down to personal preference. Take your time and spend at least 10 minutes lying down in your natural sleeping position – together if the bed is for two as it needs to be right for both of you.
Too often, people rush the bed buying experience – some spend less than two minutes trying them out! It’s a huge investment and time needs to be taken to choose the right bed.
