The Sleep Council BBG_2014_cover-lo-res-141x300 Need A New Bed – Check Out Our Updated Bed Buyers Guide  We’re very excited about our newly updated consumer leaflet the Bed Buyers Guide that is packed with the latest advice on the types of bed available – and the latest ways of buying them.

Nearly 20 years on from when the free booklet was first published, demand for information on how to choose a new bed remains as high as ever.

The new guide offers tips on why and when to choose a new bed; what style, what size and what price; how to try before you buy; and the types of mattress, base, pillows and toppers available.

The Bed Buyers Guide is available, free of charge, from our website here. If you would like a hard copy of the leaflet, please call our leaflet line on 0800 018 7923.

The foundation of good sleep is a comfortable, supportive bed, regularly replaced, ideally every seven years. And our month-long awareness campaign – May be time for a new mattress – is encouraging you to take a look at your mattress and see if it’s offering the levels of comfort or support that it should.  Even a mattress that looks OK may not actually be OK.

If you’re not sure if it’s time to invest in a new bed, answer the questions below. Three ‘Yes’ answers and you’re not getting the best possible night’s sleep. Five or more and it’s time to buy a new bed!

  • Is the mattress seven years old or more?
  • Would it be embarrassing if neighbours saw it without its covers?
  • Does it make suspicious noises in the night?
  • Did you have your best recent night’s sleep in a bed other than yours?
  • Are you waking up more frequently unrefreshed and aching?
  • Do you and your partner roll towards each unintentionally in the middle of the night?
  • Do you have enough space to sleep comfortably?
  • Is it sagging?
  • Does it feel lumpy in the night?
