Buying a new bed and mattress is a major decision. After all, your rest and relaxation are at stake. At Westend Bed Company, we offer a wealth of choices so you can find the right mattress to suit your sleeping – and waking – preferences.
Every mattress in our showroom in East Sheen has been specifically chosen by our expert team and is perfectly crafted and lovingly designed with comfort in mind. But which one is the ideal match for you?
There’s no substitute for visiting a bed showroom and trying out a range of the beds. The way it feels to lie and turn on the mattress is crucial. People enjoy different amounts of softness and firmness and it’s impossible to find your ideal bed off the page of a brochure or website.
Mattress comfort comes from the materials it’s filled with and the springs that provide support. The more turns there are in a spring, the more responsive and supportive it will be. More springs in a mattress create a more uniform level of support. If there are big gaps between springs, the mattress loses consistency and can feel bumpy – not ideal when you are trying to rest your body at night.
When it comes to mattress upholstery, different materials create a range of sensations when you lie on the mattress. Cashmere, wool, silk or alpaca are luxurious, soft materials that combine to produce different mattress densities. Natural latex is a high performance, temperature regulating material that can help keep you cool while you sleep. If you suffer from allergies, some mattress fillings are hypoallergenic and resistant to dust mites, such as wool and latex.
Side stitching is another important feature of a quality mattress. The Hypnos collection of beds, for instance, are all hand-stitched with up to three rows of stitching for total edge-to-edge support. These beds are also hand-tufted to create lasting mattress performance and comfort.
To ensure you find the perfect mattress, there really is no substitute for going to a bed showroom and trying a few different models. At Westend Bed Company, we have also developed personalised and complimentary sleep consultations to help our customers find their dream bed. Each consultation lasts for approximately 45 minutes and involves a lifestyle evaluation and sleep analysis with an experienced member of our team.
