If someone asked you to name which room in your home you would most like to swathe in opulence, which one would you choose?
While a cutting edge kitchen and a luxury living room to show off to guests wouldn’t go amiss, many people would opt for the bedroom. Offering a welcoming oasis from busy work and home lives and providing a special place to rest our heads and recharge our batteries, the bedroom is one of the most important rooms in the house.
Our homes may be our castle but our bedrooms are our sanctuaries, providing a cosy nest designed to block out the stresses of the day and give way to relaxation and well-earned sleep – but how should you get yours up to scratch?
Why invest in a luxury mattress?
Did you know we spend around a third of our lives sound asleep? Getting high quality and sufficient sleep is incredibly important for our health and productivity and can provide both the comfort and support that is necessary to enjoy a good night’s sleep.
Luxury is no longer synonymous with the unaffordable; in fact, there is an impressive collection of sumptuous mattresses out there that do not have to break the bank.
With all this in mind, here’s what you should look for in a luxury mattress.
Comfort mainly depends on the way a mattress is constructed and the materials it is crafted from. Memory foam is innovative technology that was originally developed by NASA which moulds to your shape as it reacts to your body heat.
Gently ease into slumber as the mattress conforms to your shape and stay warm as air circulation around your body is significantly reduced.
If you share a bed with someone who tosses and turns a lot in their sleep, you may want to consider layered pocket coil spring mattresses topped with latex and memory foam for a luxurious level of comfort. Since the springs work independently of each other, both of you will enjoy even, effective support and get a great night’s sleep.
Look for premium natural fillings like wool, cashmere and silk. A Royale Heritage Balmoral Mattress is crafted with these fine materials and finished with a high quality Belgian damask cover for a heavenly night’s rest.
Every last detail is important to make sure your entire mattress screams luxury, which is why the type of cover you select makes all the difference. Choose fabric woven with silk proteins for exquisite softness and cashmere for that additional touch of opulence. Alternatively, the temperature regulating technology in Outlast® covers ensures you don’t get too hot or too cold during the night.
The best luxury mattresses come with extra features to ensure first-rate comfort and convenience. No-turn mattresses, four corner handles for easy rotation and hypoallergenic mattresses are just some examples.
