    Great sleeping tips from South Australia’s mattress experts

    Customer Enquiry

    Certain lifestyle changes can make a world of difference to the quality of your sleep, but what if your sleeping issues aren’t linked to your diet, work, and exercise habits? Dreamland has helped countless customers throughout South Australia get the quality of sleep they deserve by helping them make a few simple changes in the bedroom. 

    If your bed, pillow, and mattress is not right for you and your comfort needs, it’s highly likely that you’ll experience sleepless nights. As experts in the industry, we’ve shared some valuable sleeping tips to ensure you get better sleep.   

    Is a hard or soft mattress better for you?

    Your body type and age determines the amount of comfort you need. A heavier person generally prefers a firmer mattress, a lighter person needs more comfort to cushion their bones, and the elderly need more comfort and support. Choosing the right mattress helps to avoid back pain and allows the spine to rest and rejuvenate during the night.

    Do you wake up with pain in the neck or suffer from headaches?

    It may be that your pillow is too hard, too soft, too high or too low. The correct pillow is just as important as sleeping on the right mattress. Dreamland’s consultants encourage you to lie down and try a variety of pillows before you buy. Another of our great sleeping tips is to keep your pillow clean and fresh with a washable pillow protector. 

    Waking up tired, stiff, and sore?

    It’s the quality of sleep that counts rather than the number of hours we actually sleep for. Good sleep begins with a good mattress, so maybe you’re lying on the problem. Check your mattress for bumps, dips, and sags, and feel if any springs are poking through. If you’re rolling into the middle like a hammock, or feel that your mattress is worn out, then it’s time to invest in a new Dreamland mattress.

    How much should you spend when buying a bed?

    Generally you get what you pay for. Superior comfort, quality support, durability, respected brands, and genuine guarantees will cost you more. Buying a newspaper daily for ten years at $1.20 each time will cost you just over $4,000. Compare that to spending only $1999 on a top-quality queen size ensemble that still lasts you ten years. That’s only 55 cents a night. What’s more important to your wellbeing and your pocket?

    Does a mattress with more springs make it better quality?

    No. You can’t judge a mattress by the number of springs these days. There are so many brands on the market, including Posturepedic, Chiropractic, Miracoil and Pocket Coil that it can seem confusing and overwhelming. Latex rubber and memory foam mattresses don’t have any springs in them at all. Each mattress will feel different, so just lie down and try them. A Dreamland consultant will guide you to the brand and model that fits you best.

    A healthy bed leads to a healthy lifestyle

    We’re always getting asked for sleeping tips on how to achieve a healthy bed, especially from the many South Australians who suffer from asthma and allergies. A mattress is a great breeding ground for those little, nasty bed bugs. We shed human skin every night, and they just love to eat it. The majority of Dreamland’s mattresses are treated in some way to inhibit their breeding cycle. Also, be sure to use a good quality mattress protector to ensure you are sleeping on the healthiest bed possible.

    Do you deserve to be spoiled?

    If you want to have a massage, read a book or simply watch TV while comfortably sitting up in bed, an adjustable bed is a great option. You can elevate the head and knees, which relieves pressure on the lower back, similar to a recliner. Create a contemporary look for your modern home by putting two extra-long single beds together and enjoy the individual control and king size comfort. 

    Can you sleep anywhere?

    The truth is, some people really can. If you think you can sleep on anything and anywhere, try lying on the ground for a few hours to see how uncomfortable you feel. Then try a good supportive and comfortable mattress that looks after the spine, just like a comfortable pair of shoes nurturing your feet.

    Top sleeping tip

    Always try out a new bed in the morning. If you leave it to the end of the day when you’re tired, they will all feel the same. Don’t end up investing in a mattress that doesn’t suit your comfort level, regardless of the time of day.
