Finding Your Perfect Mattress


Walking into a mattress store for the first time can be stressful – a lot of the beds can look similar and can even feel similar. There are several factors to think about when you are picking out a mattress – size, support systems, allergies, firmness – the list can get overwhelming, but being prepared for your mattress shopping experience will make your decision much easier.

When you go to shop for a mattress, knowing what you are looking for is very important. For example, if you have a lot of problems with pain while you sleep, you want to focus on the beds that are specifically designed to ease pain while sleeping. But still, how do you choose a bed and know that it is the right bed for you?

Mattress technology is constantly advancing so it is important to visit a store to test out the newest technologies and innovations. Once you have arrived in the store, we suggest testing out the mattresses by using the SLEEP test. This process of testing mattresses is designed to help you carefully consider the most important factors of mattress shopping.

Here’s how to take the SLEEP Test:

Select a mattress that’s right for you, size and comfort are important.

Lie down on the bed in your natural sleep position.

Evaluate the level of comfort and support and be aware of your individual requirements.

Educate yourself about each selection to understand the investment in rest and rejuvenation.

Partners should always be considered when making a choice.
We have created an extensive range of innovative products that offer pressure relieving comfort and support systems to conform to the individual weight and movement for everybody. This provides reduced partner disturbance combined with healthy sleep components which help you to maximise the quality of your sleep.

Please let us know if you would like any assistance in selecting the mattress that is right for you!

    I love the fact that you mentioned the level of comfort and individual requirements because that is what matters at the end of the day.

    Hi,we are about to buy a new bed. Because we like the softest bed possible we were thinking of researching for a latex or memory foam bed(maybe a Tempura) or a quality coil/pillow top. We traveled this weekend from our home in Wollongong & stayed at the ARIA in Canberra & really liked the AH BEARD ARIA CANBERRA bed there & if we could purchase that bed we would probably do so. We would be very grateful if someone from AH Beard could kindly contact us with advice as soon as possible.
