What would be your top 3 things for a good and serene night’s sleep in a guest room ?
For me it would be the temperature being nice and cool, the palette of the room being soothing – certain hues such as reds or some yellows and loud wallpapers are a stimulant so a nice calm shade of white to keep your mind clear or think blues, greys and deep greens to relax.
But most importantly it would be the comfort of the bed. So I gave this quite a bit of thought when updating our spare room recently because obviously we want our visitors to feel really welcome. We spend 1/ 3 of our lives sleeping so it’s got to be right ?
I did quite some research in to mattresses and found Sleepbear who ticked on all of my ‘ initial interest ‘ boxes on paper being that they offer a trial period of 100 days trial meaning you can avoid wandering around shops lying on mattresses in front of strangers ( unless that’s your thang of course ), very quick delivery, a 10 year guarantee.
All of Sleepbear’s mattresses are hand made in the UK by their family run business right through the process.. There’s a little video on the website showing you it all which I found pretty interesting. The mattresses have 3 layers. For this double mattress for our guest bed the top layer is 4cm thickness of a very perforated high quality pure latex that naturally regulates your body temperature and offers extreme comfort , then 6cm of memory foam that moulds and adapts your to your sleeping movements and then a 16cm super dense base which is the firm foundation and offers the support needed.
What is really cool about Sleepbear ( and my daughter’s were extra impressed by this bit ) is that they have teamed up with Polar Bears International and give a percentage of proceeds each year to the organisation.
What better way to actually review the Sleepbear Mattress than to ask the girls to try it out and make a rare appearance on the blog. Then I tried it out the second night… y’know just to be totally sure…
Here’s the girls’ review of their night’s sleep in 5 words …
Relaxing, soft, bouncy, comfy and delightful !
I found my night on the mattress really good. I don’t always manage to sleep through the night but I did and felt well supported. So much so I didn’t actually want to get up in the morning to be honest.
So we are looking forward to our first guest staying now that we know it’ll keep them comfy.
