If you or your partner are suffering from disturbed sleep, it could be a sign that you’ve outgrown your bed.
On average, people spend one third of their lives lying in bed, so it’s important to your quality of life that you ensure that your sleep environment is as comfortable as possible.
If you feel like your sleep is constantly being disturbed by the other person in the bed with you, then this is a sure sign that it’s time to invest in a bigger bed.
Beds are available in a variety of sizes, from the standard double, to queen size, king size, and even larger European sizes. Moving up a size may not be as expensive as you think and could have a significant impact on your health and wellbeing, helping you to feel more rested and refreshed.
Here are the top two reasons why people choose to invest in a bigger bed.
Disrupting each other’s sleep
Did you know that the average person wriggles around between 60 and 70 times each night? Sleeping in too close a proximity to someone else can cause your sleep to be constantly disrupted, making you feel tired and irritable the following day, and sometimes even effecting your health, memory and concentration. A bigger bed offers the space to move around freely without disturbing, or being disturbed by, your significant other.
You’ve had or are having a baby
If you bought your bed as a couple and have since gone on to have children, then your bed might be starting to feel a little cramped. Even if you swore never to bedshare with your children, they have a habit of finding a way to wriggle their way in when you’re too tired to protest! You may also find a bigger bed beneficial during pregnancy, when a growing bump can cause extra tossing and turning during the night and the introduction of bulky body pillows into the bed too.
