Buying The Perfect Mattress

We spend about a third of our lives in bed, so it’s important to invest in a quality mattress that supports our bodies and sleeping habits. Finding the perfect mattress can be an overwhelming experience but with the right support and knowledge, a good night’s sleep is only a mattress away!

The team at Beds n Dreams Helensvale have provided their top tips that will help you pick the right mattress that suits your sleep style and needs.

Try Before You Buy

Make sure you take the time to lie-down and try different mattresses before you make your final decision. Your sleep comfort preference is personal and one that only you can make. Are you a back, side, or stomach sleeper? Make sure to lie in your normal sleep position when testing a mattress.

Who Else Shares the Bed?

If you share a bed with partner, bring them along to try it out as well. Do you experience interrupted sleep because of partner disturbance? If the tiniest of movement awakens you, ask about a support system that can minimise motion transfer so that both of you can sleep soundly through the night!

Consider the Support You Need

There are several types of mattresses out there but it’s important to find the one that caters to your health needs. Do you suffer from back pain, aching hips or sore shoulders? Certain mattresses are designed to support different body areas and offer comfort levels to various parts of the body.

Whether support is given from individually wrapped and zoned pocket coils or from premium base memory foams, your mattress needs a supportive, high quality, and contoured foundation.

Size Matters  

Choosing the right size mattress for you is essential. Depending on your height, environment, sleeping preferences and partner, the size of your mattress may vary! From single to super king beds, the team at Beds n Dreams can help match you with the right mattress.


Most people don’t realise that the temperature of your body and surroundings are one of the key factors to a good night’s sleep! The Queensland heat and humidity can impact our bodies core sleep temperature, reducing quality deep sleep. Temperature controlling fibres and cooling foams regulate mattress heat levels to ensure a comfortable and cool sleep!
