As we head out of winter and into spring, the weather starts (hopefully) improving, the days become longer and everything takes on a fresher feel. Now is the perfect time to give your home, and in particular, your bedroom a refresh for spring.
Throughout the dark, cold months of winter we often look at our homes and resolve to give them a revamp in the New Year. Dusting off the cobwebs of winter, spring is the perfect time to spruce up your home including your bedroom which can often get overlooked.
Industry experts often advise changing your mattress every 7-8 years but it is important that your bed is judged on how comfortable and supportive it is and not solely on its age. Regular mattress replacement also has a number of health benefits, for example helping to reduce the build-up of asthma-triggering dust mites. These little critters love mattresses as we each lose around 285ml of fluid every night and shed 6kgs of dead skin cells each year making your mattress the perfect home for dust mites.
Spending the time choosing a quality bed that suits your individual requirements is a valuable exercise as buying a bed is an investment in your future health and wellbeing. A lack of quality, restorative sleep has adverse effects on your short and long term health. Did you know that regularly losing sleep as a result of stress or an uncomfortable sleeping arrangement has the same effect on your brain and reflexes as being drunk?
Brent Cooper, Managing Director at Westend Bed Company, said: “A restful night of quality sleep is vital for good health and it is important people give it the attention it deserves. Irritability, short temper and a lack of concentration are all symptoms of sleep deprivation. If you want to work well, enjoy good relationships with your loved ones and work colleagues then improve your sleep quality.”
With decades of experience in the bed industry, the team at Westend Bed Company are pleased to offer every customer a complimentary sleep consultation to help them find the correct model, support system and style of bed for their individual requirements. The team are also happy to provide advice on how to take care of your bed to encourage longevity.
As the weather begins to improve, choosing a bed made of natural materials will help to regulate your body temperature during the night creating a more comfortable and restful night’s sleep. Brent said: “We are pleased to offer a wide variety of beds and mattresses at Westend Bed Company, many of which are handmade with natural materials. For instance, the beds in the luxury Diamond Collection from Marshall & Stewart contain materials including cotton, lambswool, cashmere and hand teased horsehair which naturally helps regulate temperature and efficiently manage moisture control. Our team are always on hand and happy to offer advice on finding the best bed for you.”
In addition to being the flagship showroom for Marshall & Stewart’s Diamond Collection, Westend Bed Company is also home to the largest selection of Hypnos beds in the UK.

We recently bought a new Marshall & Stewart Sancy mattress set and life has just got better and better because of it. Not only is it beautifully made but we have now had the best sleep ever. We had never appreciated what a difference a decent mattress can do…and now just cannot wait to get to bed. Sleep has got deeper and better. The quality is second to none…and the best bit is…it feels as though you have the bed to yourself as you cannot feel someone else moving around in bed with you. Our new mattress is absolutely the best thing we own. I wouldn’t change it for anything else. It’s completely wonderful.
