Down duvet experts at Downduvet.co.uk share their secrets of a good night’s sleep and how you can make it happen…
We spend approximately one third of our life in bed. Even though we go there to sleep, we all have those nights where we just can’t nod off. We can’t get comfortable. We’re too hot. Now we’re too cold. The pillows aren’t right. It’s either too dark or it’s too light. Your mind won’t go to sleep. Did you remember to shut the gate? Those are the nights you’ll knowingly appreciate a quality bed the most.
There is a lot to be said for spending money on the things you use the most often. The Sleep Council recommends changing your mattress every seven years (during which time you’ll have spent a massive 20,000 hours on it!) – but how many of us actually do pay attention to what we are sleeping on and in?
We see cars, kitchens and furniture as investments and we can always justify a pair of new shoes, but a mattress and bedding is often relegated to the bottom of the priority list when it comes to spending your hard-earned cash. It’s no wonder we don’t all sleep well when we scrimp on somewhere we spend so many hours!
Luckily, there’s good news and a good night’s sleep in sight. There’s a reason why we sleep so well in hotels, and it’s not just because we don’t have to get up for the daily routine of housework, gym visits and looking after the kids. It’s because the little things like a quality goose down duvet make a big difference. The feeling of crawling into a comfortable bed with a light yet still warm and cosy duvet is second to none.
A perfect eiderdown down duvet, crafted from the very same finest Icelandic goose feathers found in some of the most luxurious boutique hotels and even Buckingham Palace is seen as an investment as well as an indulgence. While a duvet may not be for life, you’re going to get a lot of use from it as long as you look after it. Duvets are not just an investment in your home, they are an investment in you.
Whether you have a good or bad night’s sleep does hugely impact on your daily life and there really is no better time to treat yourself (or be treated to) an indulgent but oh-so necessary quality duvet than when you get married. Start your married life together sleeping easily and waking up happily. While a gorgeous dinner service is nice to have, you’ll most likely save it for special occasions. You’ll appreciate a quality duvet every single night.
You can literally be given the gift of a good night’s sleep by investing in a luxury down duvet from the downduvet.co.uk website. While prices do go up to £8,569 for the most luxurious duvet, you can bag yourself a double down duvet from £1,349 or a king-size down duvet from £1,889. When you work it out, this costs less than 10p per hour. That’s 40p, per person, per night based on use for a minimum life of 15 years – a small price to pay for a good night’s sleep.
