Step by Step: Create Your Perfect Night's Sleep

Learn the basics of building your bed and creating your perfect night's sleep. The right bedding accessories are the key to a great night's sleep, and ensure that your bed is a comfortable place for relaxation and rest. 

Step 1. Protectors

Keep your mattress and pillows fresh with protectors. Good quality protectors will add longevity to your mattress and pillows by acting as a barrier that is much more effective than using only a pillow case and sheet. Protectors also allow for regular washing for maximum bedding hygiene.

Tip: Mattress protectors are great at keeping your mattress clean & fresh, and your mattress warranty intact.


Step 2. Topper/Underlay

Add comfort with a mattress topper or underlay. Mattress toppers and underlays make new, firmer mattresses feel softer and more comfortable. They can also be used to extend the life of older mattresses that may be starting to sag or are feeling uneven.

Tip: Mattress toppers with high GSM (grams per square metre) have a greater volume of filling inside, and are therefore likely to feel more plush and luxurious.


Step 3. Quilt

Get warm & cosy with the perfect quilt. An all seasons quilt is the perfect all-rounder for most Australian climates, but warmer or cooler options are also available to suit your preferred sleeping temperature.

Tip: Feather & down quilts are light and fluffy, while wool quilts are heavy and feel secure. Polyester quilts are a great middle-ground.


Step 4. Pillow

Improve your sleep with the right pillow. The most common type of pillows on the market are polyester pillows, which should be replaced every 18 months - 2 years to ensure that they giving you adequate support and are kept fresh. Be sure to wash your pillows regularly!

Tip: If you are looking for longer lasting pillows with extra support, consider latex or memory foam pillows.


Step 5. Bed Linen

Show off your style with fresh bed linen. Finish off your perfect bed with some sheets, pillow cases and quilt covers that you love the look and feel of. This is an easy way to breathe new life into your bedroom decor.

Tip: Keep it classic with white, or mix & match your bed linen colours and textures for a modern look.
