This month at QVC we’re focusing on catching up on our zzz’s as part of Sleeptember, an annual event run by The Sleep Council that raises awareness of the importance of sleep, what you can do to achieve a better night’s sleep, and what benefits a good night’s sleep can bring.
It’s an ideal time to focus on how well we sleep, as the mornings start to darken and it becomes harder and harder to turn off that snooze button! A good way to improve the quality of our sleep is by creating a calming, restful bedtime space – anything from the pillows we use to the colour scheme we surround ourselves with can make a huge difference.
Our Sleeptember range is a great place to start. Whether it’s adding a snuggly throw or transforming your bed from the base up, we have everything you need to build a bedtime environment that helps you to drift off comfortably. Read on for some of our top picks and don’t forget to check out the whole collection.
The right base
Ever wake up feeling stiff, achy and sleepy? A good mattress that supports you well and suits how you sleep can make a huge difference to how much shut-eye you get. One we’ve got our eyes on currently is Sealy’s ActivSleep Comfort Mattress. It has 1800 individually responsive pocket springs, designed to help provide support where our body needs it the most, as well as a layer of memory foam and a soft knitted surface fabric for amazing comfort. You can even get it with a smart-looking divan bed base with lots of storage!
Both excellent ways for helping you create the ultimate sleep environment, mattress toppers are a great way to give older mattresses a new lease of life or new one’s additional cushioning and depth, while mattress protectors help to increase the life-span of a mattress. This Dual Layer Anti Allergen Airmax Topper from Silentnight and Water-Resistant Protector from Protect A Bed are two of the best around currently.
Rest your head
Pillows play a significant role in how well we sleep because they directly affect the alignment of the body. Which is why having a pillow that is comfortable and works for your sleeping habits is so important. Offering superb support while remaining soft and breathable, some of our favourite pillows in the collection include Tempur’s Comfort Pillow Cloud and Silentnight’s Supremely Full Pillows.
It’s much harder to sleep when we are too warm or too cold, which is why the type of duvet you have can make such a big difference to how well you sleep. A versatile duvet such as the All Seasons Feather & Down Duvet from Northern Nights is perfect because it is adaptable for all seasons, featuring 4.5 tog and 9 tog duvets that can be clipped together to create a warm 13.5 tog winter duvet during colder spells.
Bedding that you love the look of and the feel of can also make a huge difference in how happy, calm and comfortable you feel when in bed. We’ve got plenty of great duvet cover, pillowcase and sheet choices in our Sleeptember range, including this beautiful Angelina Velvetsoft Duvet Set, delightful Kids Star Catcher Duvet Set and these Deep Fitted Sheets, all from Cozee Home.
Finally, it’s often the little things that bring everything together and it’s so true when it comes to where we sleep. The addition of a soft throw or your favourite cushion often turns something from ‘just a bed’ to your personal slice of ‘home haven’ – and we have plenty to choose from!
You’re sure to drift off into a restful sleep wrapped in the cosy comfort of this Alison Cork throw, and what better way to make your bed look beautiful and inviting than with this Leena Seafoam Cushion from Oasis?
We hope our Sleeptember range helps you catch more zzz’s this month and beyond. Explore the main collection for more fabulous choices and make sure to tune in for our Sleeptember shows to find out more, including top tips on how to improve the quality of your sleep.
