You’ve just returned from a dream honeymoon! The food, the villa, the service – it was all fit for royalty, but now you’re back at home and suddenly the bed is little too hard and the mattress is not quite big enough to comfortably fit the both of you. Suddenly you and your hubby find yourselves struggling to fall asleep, only to wake up with a sore back and in a bad mood – not quite how you pictured your first few weeks of marital bliss. You both decide that a new mattress is the answer to your sleepless nights, aches and pains. It might even be the secret to a long and happy marriage!
However, there are a few things you should know and do before shopping for a new bed. To help you choose the right mattress Dynamic Bedding, manufacturer and exclusive supplier of quality beds to The Bed Shop, suggests these four side-steps to avoid commonly made mistakes:
- You don’t discuss your expectations
Think back to that honeymoon bed. Did you both sleep comfortably, blissfully even? Yes? What aspects do you think contributed to this? A quick chat about what you both want and expect from a bed will save you some time and energy when you’re out shopping. Communication is key when buying a mattress – if there’s something you like or don’t like, make a note and discuss with your partner or even the sleep consultant. Chances are that there’s mattress that will address both your needs, like Dynamic Bedding’s Hybrid Range. It offers the necessary support and comfort so you won’t have to compromise on the quality of sleep you get.
- You don’t take your (different) sleeping styles into consideration
Everyone has a different sleeping style and it often happens that partners do not share the same style. Different sleeping styles can have a massive influence on the quality of sleep you receive. If you’re not sure what you’re sleeping style is aside from back, side or stomach you can ask your partner. Chances are that if you’re a deep AND restless sleeper they’ve made a note of this because they’re probably a light sleeper that falls asleep and wakes up in the same position. Memory and gel memory foam as found in Dynamic Beddings’ Therapeadic Deluxe Bed or Hybrid Deluxe Gel Beds offer great support and stability for partners that have to deal with rock and roll sleepers.
- You don’t check the warranties
No one reads the fine print. This is nothing new, but when you’re buying an item that has to last for at least 10 years you need to check the warranty and safely file your proof of payment. Dynamic Bedding’s Mattress either come with a 10, 20 or 25-year service warranty and covers manufacturing defects that are caused by defective workmanship or materials (T&C apply). You can also rest assured that our Bedding materials are SABS approved. This means they’ve been put through the SABS process of certification and has passed performance and quality assurance tests which meets qualification criteria stipulated in a standard, specification or regulation.
- You don’t take your physical needs into consideration
Do either of you suffer from sports injuries? Does your husband need to hunch down in order to walk through a door? You might fit comfortably on the bed, while your husband’s feet just flop out at the end. Back and hip injuries also require added support for which Dynamic Bedding’s Orthopeadic and Hybrid ranges offer the necessary support. These physical needs should be taken into consideration when you’re shopping for a mattress and it’s also why you need to shop for one together.
