Beds are one of the most important items in our lives. We are usually born in a bed and we invariably die in a bed! We get lots of pleasure from being in bed and the average person spends approximately one third of their life there.
In fact, no other major furniture item we purchase is as important to our well being as our bed. Whether rich or poor, we need to sleep.... and preferably in a bed!
Quality of sleep is vital to our health and an average of eight hours sleep will allow our bodies to re-energise for the next 16 hours of generally frenetic activity! It is therefore extremely important that we choose a bed, which can support our bodies correctly and one that can provide a comfortable, restful nights sleep.
In recent years, it has become abundantly clear to most people, that a good bed is needed to help us through our modern, busy lifestyle. Recent trends show that whilst the general public consider a bed to be a functional, long lasting item, they are now looking at bed purchases as an investment in their general health and well-being. More and more new beds are being bought and more money is being spent on getting a good nights rest. The old adage ‘you should aim to buy the best quality bed and the best quality shoes that you can afford - because if you’re not in one, then you’re in the other!!’ is as true today as it ever was!
The choice of beds could not be greater. Fashion is now coming into the bedroom, creating a market where you can choose beds in leather, wood or metal...and on the divan front you can choose from suede and leather bases, to ensure that your new bed blends in with your bedroom ambience.
There have also been lots of new, innovative developments in mattress specifications. Memory foam is now widely available with much emphasis on healthy, non-allergenic, high performance upholstery. In fact, here at Bedsupermarket, we have beds and mattresses to suit just about everyone. We work with leading UK and overseas bed manufacturers to help develop new support options with an aim to provide better quality products, whilst essentially keeping a keen eye on ‘value for money’ and improved durability.
We are constantly launching new beds and products and are usually first to market with many new specifications.
We also work closely with our raw material manufacturers to help develop new fabrics for bed production, which help with:
Air flow and temperature control
New bed spring systems, to combine comfort and long product life
Non-allergenic bed upholstery to offer a more restful nights sleep
At Bedsupermarket, we also take the best of what’s available from the medical market in terms of body support, comfort and durability, together with allergy free properties and develop all these advantages into retail beds that everyone can benefit from.
The average spend on a bed is approximately £500. Beds purchased with a value below this figure are fit for their purpose and can be very comfortable but above this price comes luxury and better, longer lasting support with superior quality upholstery materials.
If your bed is more than five years old, ask yourself these simple questions:
- Do you and your partner ‘roll together’ during the night?
- Can you sleep to the edge of your mattress without the feeling of ‘falling off the edge’?
- Are you restless during the night?
- Do you sometimes wake up still feeling tired?
- Do you have feelings of pins and needles?
If the answer is ‘yes’ to any of the above then it’s time to visit Bedsupermarket and choose the bed for you. Our range will have the right bed for you at a price you can afford. Treat your body to better support and wake up feeling more refreshed and ready for the day ahead.
When you use Bedsupermarket Sleep Consultants to help find the most suitable bed for you, give us your feedback and we’ll publish your comments so that other customers can benefit from your experience.
The demand for pure and honest materials is ever growing. This is why we at The Futon Shop has introduced organically cultivated cotton as a raw material into its extensive range of mattress fabrics. This mattress fabrics is called Organic Cotton because it is made from 100% organically grown cotton fibre.
Socially and ecologically consistent because the organic cultivation methods by no means detract from the natural qualities of cotton. This cotton is just as soft, strong and voluminous. Cotton breathes and is breathtakingly soft. One could ask that since we don’t eat or drink cotton, why make so much fuss about how it is produced? But the answer is simple: the ever more knowledgeable consumer is insisting on a more consistent approach to social responsibility and environmental management. As people see their children becoming increasingly sensitive to environmental factors, being able to raise them in clean surroundings becomes an ever more critical issue.
Sleep in fresh cotton Organic cotton is therefore very much in demand for the production of our organic mattress collections. It’s such a comfort knowing you’ll not be sleeping on pesticides.
Added value is that organic farming is environment friendly. The use of organically cultivated cotton is on the rise as never before. We know that in conventional cotton production, generally far too many pesticides are used. This is often due to the ignorance of local farmers. It is a fact that these pesticides pollute the groundwater and soil, and are dangerous to humans and animals alike.
Social benefit of organic Cotton is a mattress fabrics made from organically cultivated cotton. The fluffy cotton balls that spring from the opened seed cases of the cotton plant come to full ripeness on a ‘controlled diet’. Instead of being sprayed with traditional pesticides, they are pampered with a mixture of organic fertiliser, ground tea tree seeds and soap. The farmer no longer has to invest in fertilisers; he can source more than enough from his own land. His family is healthier, they need less medication… so organic cotton is definitely the future.
Peace of mind is that you can sleep with peace of mind on organically grown cotton. It’s the perfect way to make your contribution to a cleaner environment. Cotton’s intrinsic qualities are fully safeguarded in organic farming so that its natural softness and comfort are ensured. Organic cotton is an ideal raw material for a pure and eco-friendly product. Organic Cotton mattress fabrics fulfils all our expectations of a natural fibre. Its pureness and softness, its eco-friendliness in processing, its anti-allergenic and anti-irritation qualities, …
Ambitious and positive is that cotton accounts for about half of the world’s textile production. Organically grown cotton will undoubtedly play a leading role worldwide in tackling the negative social impact and environmental issues involved with cotton production. The demand for bio-cotton only started to show significant growth as from the year 2000. In order to underpin this trend, it is important that we increase our use of organic cotton; an opportunity for companies to join in as front runners in a promising future. Only by increasing worldwide demand, can the production of organic cotton continue to expand and have a greater impact on production capacity.

Why Organic Cotton?
* Organic farming is a healthier, more sustainable way of producing vegetables and fibers.
* Organic methods focus on soil health, replenishing soil fertility, promote bio diversity, and protect our air, water, soils and wildlife from toxic chemicals. Organic farming is also a powerful tool in the fight against global warming. It reduces our dependence on fossil fuels and stores carbon in the soil, where it boosts soil fertility instead of releasing it to the atmosphere as a greenhouse gas. Organic farming just makes sense—for people and for the planet. We use cotton is just about every futon we manufacture, because when properly used in a futon mattress the comfort and natural qualities make it ideal for every night sleeping.
