Don't let your bed get in the way of a good night's sleep


Research suggests that people who manage to get a good night’s sleep are more likely to be happy and productive in their daily life. Many people struggle to do this for a variety of reasons, one of the most avoidable is a poor quality bed and/or mattress.

The NHS offers the following advice for people who suffer from insomnia: 'make sure that your bed is comfortable. It’s difficult to get restful sleep on a mattress that’s too soft or too hard, or a bed that’s too small or old.' According to Boots WebMD: 'research also shows a new bed is more effective than sleeping pills, so if your mattress is more 10 years old consider replacing it.'

Fortunately, Dreams beds are designed to ease the aches and pains from the day. With mattresses that support the back, and frames that suit any type of décor. Whether you need a simple bed for the spare room, or a bold statement piece to take centre stage in the master bedroom, Dreams has something for absolutely everyone.

Suitable for every budget

Dreams' popular “under £200” range proves that just because someone is on a budget, does not mean that they have to sacrifice either the quality or the beautiful design that they would expect from a more expensive bed. With bedsteads ranging from £79, it’s easy to just choose the perfect mattress, to go with it, to ensure that they can offer the best night’s sleep possible.

Dreams offer a huge choice of both bedsteads and mattresses, from Divans, to beautiful wooden pieces. From simple bed frames for a child’s bedroom to luxury leather beds that come complete with a television that hides away discreetly. So, how can anyone possibly choose?

Well, with many beds now half price, plus an extra 20% off, Dreams are here to help. Spend over £100 and they will even offer free delivery.

Finish off your bedroom with one of Dreams' fantastic headboards. Available in a variety of shapes, styles, materials and colours, everyone is guaranteed to find the perfect complement or statement for both the bed and the bedroom.

Bedding and other accessories

Complete a bed with cosy bedding to help even the lightest sleeper, with covers that reflect your personality and match the rest of the décor. Don’t forget to pick the right pillows, especially if you have neck problems. Many people don’t realise it, but pillows are just as important as the mattress or bed itself in helping you to get a good night's sleep. It's worth investing as much as you can to get the very best support for your head and neck. Mattress protectors are also worth looking at, as these not only help to preserve and maintain your mattress, they also add an extra level of comfort to your bed.
