Choosing The Right Bed For You

Getting a good night’s rest

The value of a great night’s sleep is so often underestimated, but choosing the right bed for you can make sleepless nights a thing of the past.

We spend virtually half our lives snuggled up in bed

If we don’t have a good night’s sleep, our days are in jeopardy of going pear-shaped. So what does it take to get a great night’s sleep? Finding the right bed is key. But as we all know, when shopping for a bed it’s difficult to know what the inside is like, and on the outside one bed looks just like the next. So what exactly should you be looking for when choosing the right bed for your own personal situation? And what actually goes into making the ideal mattress?

Our friends from Simmons – one of Hirsch’s suppliers of top-end beds – have a factory in KwaDukuza and offered to take us on a tour of their factory, and to find out why their Pocketed Coil Technology mattresses have seen millions of people over the last 140 years reluctant to get out of bed in the morning. Why? Simply because it was just too comfortable!

Research is key

When Simmons conducted research one of the key questions they asked consumers was this: What was the most important consideration when buying a bed? The majority of people said they wanted comfort and a mattress that was supportive – hence the pocket coil system that was patented by Simmons.

The experts at Simmons were quick to point out the importance of trying out a mattress in the shop before making your final decision. And there’s a very good reason for this. When you lie on a mattress, hundreds of individually pocketed coils adjust independently to the weight and contour of your body, giving you the correct back support, motion separation and a great night’s sleep!

We love local

When we were given a tour of the Simmons factory, we marvelled at how spotless it was. We loved the fact that the mattresses are made up of a combination of locally and imported components, and that the memory foam that goes into the mattresses is manufactured especially for them. Other important considerations when buying a bed? A mattress protector is essential to help eliminate dust mites, and a good pillow – like the Simmons pillows made with micro coils – enables airflow.
