Sleep Guide

‘Helping You Find The Perfect Nights Sleep’

When it comes to your new bed, one size certainly doesn’t fit all. Here at our Honley showroom, located a short distance from Huddersfield, we start by finding you the correct support, be it on a firm, medium or gentle mattress, and then focus on finding the comfort you desire. We make the bed buying process as enjoyable as possible offering expert advice about your posture and support, free delivery and installation. Ultimately, at Sleep Matters you don’t just purchase a luxurious new bed, but a great night’s sleep.

‘Supporting You While You Sleep’

As we have mentioned, finding the correct support is crucial to getting a great night’s sleep. If the mattress is too firm it can create pressure on your shoulders, hips and knees and lead to a restless night. If the mattress is too soft, it will cause intense pressure on your lumber region, causing you to feel stiff and sore the next day. The right mattress tension will support and contour to your bodies profile, keeping your spine perfectly aligned during the night.

Receiving the right support in bed is paramount to a great nights sleep

‘Rest and Relax’

Once we have agreed on the support you (and your partner) need, we can then take as much time as required to find you the right level of comfort. Comfort levels vary, depending on the amount of springs, layers of fillings and type of mattress you want. For instance, a pillow top mattress features a sumptuous layer of fillings and springs, which is permanently attached to the core mattress underneath –  perfect for those who prefer the feel of a gentle mattress but need a firmer support.


Sleep soundly knowing your mattress is supporting you correctly throughout the night

‘What You Need To Know’

How do I go about choosing a new mattress?

The most important thing, when choosing your new mattress, is to find the optimum support level for you. Finding the correct support is crucial to promoting a good sleeping posture which in turn will ensure you have a great night’s sleep.

Shouldn’t I just try and find a mattress with a similar feel to my old one?

Certainly! If you have been happy with the quality of sleep your existing mattress has provided you with over the years, then we will take you through our extensive range to find a mattress that has a very similar feel to your current one. However, finding the correct support depends on your weight, height, build and even your preferred sleeping position, so it’s important to understand that your needs may have changed since you last bought a mattress- after all how much have you changed in the last ten years?

How will I know what the right support for me is?

To determine which is the right support for you, we will look at how your spine is aligned when you lay on our three levels of support: firm, medium and gently supportive. Then, with guidance from our team, you will feel when the support is right.

What if My Partner and I need different tensions?

The benefit of buying a bespoke bed from our store is that we ensure your mattress is made to meet the specific requirements of both you, and your partner. We offer dual tension ((half and half) and Zip and link mattresses, meaning you never have to compromise on support at Sleep Matters.

Can I continue to use my existing base?

Whilst we do recommend buying a new base with your new mattress to extend its life, some people do choose to order a mattress on its own

. It is important to let us know, when in store, what base you intend to use the mattress on so we can advise you accordingly. Our mattresses are designed to contour to your body, but equally they also contour to your base – so if that has dipped or is no longer supportive in any way the mattress is likely to follow suit.  Whilst it may be acceptable now – you’ve got to ask yourself will it last another ten years?

Should I buy a Sprung or a Platform top base?

This completely depends on the mattress, a sprung base works in conjunction with the springs of a pocket sprung mattresses, especially those with a high spring count, and ultimately improves its longevity. A Platform Top base, works particularly well with foam products, and provides a sturdy foundation.

Do I have to pay for my new bed all at once?

Here at Sleep Matters, we request a small 10% deposit when you order your bed. Then, once your new mattress arrives with us, we collect the remaining balance and arrange a delivery date and a time that suits you.
