Ottoman Beds – Excellent Sleep and Storage Solutions

Space is something we all struggle within our homes, sometimes it literally feels like we are playing a game of jenga trying to manage everything in the small space we have. Most of our space is taken by our furniture, but the thing about furniture is that we need it and we cannot get rid of the essentials. One of the biggest pieces of our furniture is the bed. The thing is huge and takes up considerable space which can be utilized elsewhere. But what if there was a way to keep the bed there, and use its space to store things? There is such a thing, known as the Ottoman Bed.

So what is an Ottoman Bed you ask? Well, it is a bed frame or divan which offers a majority of its interior space for storage, how do you access that space? The storage is accessed by lifting the platform on top of which the mattress rests, creating a huge chest of sorts in which you can store your things and when you close the platform top, it becomes back into a bed. The platform is suspended by the means of tension springs or a hydraulic system that assists you in the process of lifting and raising the platform. The Ottoman beds have to which they can hold the load, so you’ll have to check with the retailer to find out how much your bed can hold. As compared to drawer storage beds, Ottoman Beds have much more capacity to the load they can hold. Of course there is also the case of single and double beds too, Double Ottoman beds can hold more but they are bigger so they take up more space as well. Single ottoman beds on the other hand cannot hold as much as double ottoman beds but the single Ottoman beds don’t take up much space. Though you’ll find a lot of retailers for the ottoman beds, but FDBeds are one of the best bed retailers out there. You’ll find a variety of Ottoman beds up for sale at FDBeds, and we offer free delivery as well.

The front lift ottoman bed offers a finish with high quality fabric, and a base with soft feel padding; it has a storage capacity of 0.72 cubic metres in a 5’0” size. The premium base offers the highest quality bases, with double carding on the platform that increases its strength and life. Like the front lift ottoman bed, it has a storage capacity of 0.72 cubic metres in a 5’0” size. The half lift ottoman bed fold in half instead of having to lift the whole platform up, it is only available in double sizes, whereas the others listed before it were available in single sizes as well. The side lift ottoman beds open from the side as compared to the front and it has a storage capacity of 0.72 cubic metres in a 5’0” size like the ones before it and is available in both single and double sizes.

So why not buy an ottoman bed today to look after your sleep and storage.

Choosing a Bed and Mattress for back pain

Choosing a Bed and Mattress for back painBack pain is something that most of us will suffer from at some time in our life. The Sleep Council report that up to 40% of the population will experience a problem with back pain every year. Some of the problems are caused by old age, some from wear and tear, and some from injuries. Once you have a back pain problem, then you are more likely to experience difficulty with sleep. Sometimes your bed and mattress can be part of the problem. At this stage you are likely to consider a new bed and/or mattress. Do not just go out and buy a bed that claims to be great for your back. Everyone will be different and there is definitely no “one-size-fits-all” solution. Your size, height and weight will help define the right bed for you. So choosing a Bed and Mattress for back pain is very important.

So what can you do?

Our advice, backed up by the Sleep Council, is to think carefully about the purchase. Do not just go for the cheapest, discounted bed available. Set out your requirements carefully to ensure that your bed provides you with correct support and comfort. If you are tall, then you may want to consider an extra-long bed, or probably more sensibly a bed that does not have a foot board. If you are well-built then a very soft mattress is unlikely to help you.

Also think carefully about the “labels” attached to mattresses and beds. Orthopaedic often means that it is just a much firmer mattress. It is not just the firmness that matters; it is the amount of support that the bed and mattress provide. An example of this is that we supply “Sports Mattresses” that have been designed with a range of features that not only alleviate pressure points, but also provide a better airflow around your body.

Firm Mattress for a Bad Back?

The conventional wisdom that you need a firm mattress for a bad back is being reconsidered, because experts now realise that it is more about the support to the right areas of the body (not just the back) rather than firmness that affects the comfort experienced. Better comfort equals better sleep. Better sleep equals better recovery. Sometimes a medium firm bed gives better support and comfort than a very firm bed.

The firmness of a bed is not the only factor to consider, after all a wooden board is very firm, but you will quickly feel uncomfortable on it because it does not flex to your body shape. If you are a small person then your weight will require less support than if you are a bigger person. What many people do not realise is that using different variations of springs and fillings will affect the firmness and comfort of a bed. The old methods of using horse hair or feathers were better than a wooden board, but we have come a long way with mattress technology since those days. Even mattress springs come in different designs and these will have different effects on supporting your body and bad back.

Now if you have a bad back and your mattress needs turning regularly to manage wear and tear, which is not ideal. There are mattresses that do not need turning – do not forget that a good quality mattress is likely to be heavy.

Choosing your mattress

Another mistake people make is to just go into a shop and lie on a mattress for a minute or two and make a choice. Think about times you felt comfortable on am mattress; that hotel, your friend’s house and try to find a mattress like that one. We recommend talking to our experienced staff and narrowing down your choice to 2 or 3 mattresses and beds. Then spend a good amount of time laying on the options you have chosen in a realistic sleeping style. Most people will come into our showroom and lie on their back for about 1 to 3 minutes and make their decision based on it being “so comfortable”. But how many of us actually sleep on our backs – if you do then fine? More of us sleep on our sides. It is more usual for discomfort to become apparent when you are lying in your natural sleeping position AND after a longer period. So lie in the same position you sleep in and try the mattress for at least 10 minutes. A reputable store will be more than happy for you to take your time making the right choice.

Sleep through the heat with FD Beds

We love the summer here at FD Beds. Long, warm evenings, BBQ’s with friends and family, picnics in the sun – what’s not to love? Well one part of the summer that isn’t as lovable is bedtime. We’ve all been there – tossing and turning at all hours stuck to the sheets? Being too hot to sleep is horrible, and it can leave you feeling exhausted, irritable and worn out the next day – meaning you can’t enjoy the summer sun during the daylight hours!

But fear not- we are here to ease your summer sleeping habits with our Blu Cool Memory Foam™! This is no ordinary memory foam, its unique properties ensure that it does not retain body heat. This means that while it still provides the same unique properties of memory foam, it does so without the heat.

Blu Cool Memory Foam™

Research shows that there seems to be an ideal temperature for sleep and when this temperature is very high, it can take you longer to fall asleep, and once sleep is achieved, it is more likely to be disturbed. With a Blu Cool Memory Foam™ mattress you are much more likely to keep you core temperature from rising as you mattress will no retain your body heat. This allows for a much more settled and better quality sleep!

So what are you waiting for?! Don’t let the hot summer evening affect your sleep and spoil you summer. Call us on: 01455 200 111 for more information about our Blu Cool Memory Foam™.

Other tips for keeping cool during hot summer nights-

Choose cotton sheets – Light bed linens made of lightweight cotton are breathable and excellent for promoting ventilation and airflow in the bedroom.

Drink plenty – Drink lots and lots or ice-water and keep some with you and in the fridge over night for a refreshing cool down.

Cold water bottles – During the summer fill your hot water bottle and stick it in the freezer to create a bed-friendly ice pack!

Cold sheets – You can effectively cool down a whole room by hanging a cold wet sheet in front of an open window. The breeze blowing in will help to bring down the room’s temperature

How to stop your bed becoming a battleground

How do you sleep in bed with your partner? Cuddled up in a cosy, spooning position all night? Waking up in a warm embrace? Our guess is no, because let’s face it, most of us don’t! Life is not a Hollywood blockbuster, and in reality sharing a bed with your partner isn’t always the dream we see on the big screen.

A lot of medical research into sleep habits over the last decade suggests that couples who share a bed are more likely to live longer and stay healthier than those who sleep alone. It’s believed that sharing a bed boosts emotional well-being and lowers the risk of depression, and we can understand why. It can be lovely to share a bed with your loved one and naturally many people find it very comforting.

With that said a decent night’s sleep with your other half can sometimes be a real challenge. From the sly stealing of covers to loud, irritating snoring, what was once a warm body by your side can quickly become a recipe for restlessness and arguments – a far cry from good health and happiness.

So what can you do to make sleeping as one a more pleasant experience? We have a few tips –

Try a bigger bed?
Did you know that average sleeper will turn over 60 times in the night?  It’s a wonder we don’t all fall out of our beds more regularly! For this reason, it’s important that you have enough space to move around, get comfortable and stretch out without disturbing your partner – and vice versa!

According to The Sleep Council, the easiest way to check if you have enough space in bed is to lie on your back next to your partner on the mattress, with your hands behind your heads, elbows out to either side. If your elbows touch, the bed is too small. We have a huge range of quality king size beds that are sure to give you and you partner the room you need!

Use two duvets
Another common cause of sleep disturbance between partners is stolen covers. It can be really irritating and can even cause arguments in relationships. The simplest solution to this issue we can find is to get your own set of bed covers! Having buying two duvets to cover each side of the bed separately stops cover-stealing and allows you to both have a cover in a tog and texture that you like.

Turn down the temperature
Being too hot in bed is horrible and very uncomfortable. It can make you more irritable and restless, and thus more like to get irritated by your partner’s movements! Our Blu Cool Memory Foam™ can massively help with maintaining a pleasant temperature in bed as its unique properties ensure that it does not retain body heat, thus providing the same unique properties of memory foam but without the heat.

Try a different bed
If your bed isn’t providing you with ultimate comfort levels, then you really are fighting a losing battle. Just like with overheating in bed, an uncomfortable bed can cause you to develop aches and pains which can make you restless. It’s much harder to get to sleep and much easier for your sleep to be disturbed if your bed isn’t comfy. A more suitable, comfortable bed is sure to help you and your partner sleep more harmoniously.

If you think your bed isn’t providing you with the night’s sleep you deserve, then please call FD Beds. We promise to help you sleep easy!

How much sleep do we really need?

We Humans need four basic things to survive – food, water, oxygen and SLEEP.

All of us need a decent amount of sleep to be able to function and remain healthy – it’s very important for our overall health and well-being.

Did you know that you actually spend up to 1/3 of your life asleep? That’s a lot of time, so it’s pretty important you make the most of it. The overall state of your sleep-health and how well you sleep remains a vital question throughout our lives.  It’s pretty common knowledge that getting a good night’s sleep is important, but too few of us actually make it a priority.

Our sleep quality and the amount of sleep we get in affected by so many different things, from stimulants like coffee and energy drinks to room temperature and or lighting.

Below is the National Sleep Foundations guide to who much sleep you should be getting for your age.

So sleep needs differ from age to age, lifestyle and health. To determine how much sleep you need, it’s important to consider not just your age, but also to examine what lifestyle factors affect the quality and quantity of your sleep such as diet, work schedules and stress levels.

When your bed doesn’t provide you with good support and comfort, it’s probably having a negative effect on your sleep. A lot people are unaware that their bed maybe one of the reasons they haven’t been sleeping well. Beds and mattresses especially do not last forever!

If you’re worried that you are losing out on sleep, or not sleeping as well as you once did, it could well be your bed. If you wake up with aches and pains or get a better night’s sleep elsewhere and not in your own bed it’s more than likely that a new mattress could seriously improve you quality of sleep and perhaps you quality of life.

We have literally hundreds of beds that we promise will give you a dreamy night’s sleep. For advice on which mattress we think would suit you, please feel free to select the live support option to the right of our website!
