Must-Have Furniture Pieces for Your Master Bedroom

Your master bedroom deserves to be decked out in the best furniture, from the bed itself to all the must-have accessory pieces. Read on to see what types of furniture you just can’t do without, and what additional pieces can make your life a relaxing one. 

The most important piece of furniture in your bedroom is your bed, of course. The type of bed you choose has a significant impact on your lifestyle and your quality of sleep, so choose wisely. Consider what you need most—clothing organization? Extra storage? High style and plenty of room to relax? 

The size and type of your bed frame will echo both its style and function. A minimalist metal frame won’t dominate your master bedroom’s décor, but will complement it with elegance. But if you need more space, consider beds with storage. Many bed frames, especially the larger sizes that are used in master suites, have drawers that can store just about anything. 

Head to your mattress and bed store to look at other storage solutions, too, such as end-of-bed chests and drawer sets. 

While many homeowners might not consider a sofa-bed appropriate for their master suite, apartment dwellers and those with smaller homes may find them an ideal choice when space is at a premium. Futons are also ideal for those who are looking to conserve space without sacrificing comfort. In fact, a futon at the foot of your regular master bed can act as a seating spot for an in-bedroom media center and a quick guest bed in a pinch. 

The master bedroom is a spot for unwinding as well as sleeping, so a recliner wouldn’t be out of place for those who want a reading nook or just somewhere to put their feet up. 

Mancini’s Sleepworld carries a full selection of comfortable furniture for the master suite, the kids’ room, and anywhere else you want a comfy chair or sofa. Call us at (800) 641-5337 today to learn more. 

 

3 Problems From Sleeping on an Old Mattress

Tossing and turning and waking up with a crick in your neck often means your bed is to blame. If your mattress is giving you grief, it’s time to consider a new one designed to offer support and comfort. Old mattresses are far more trouble than they’re worth, and here’s why:

 1.      Chronic Pain: Back, neck, shoulder, and even leg pain can all be attributed to an uncomfortable mattress. Your beds and mattresses should provide the right amount of support and comfort to allow your body to relax, but if you aren’t supported or you’re experiencing bedsprings getting too friendly with your body, you’re not headed for a comfortable night.

2.      Insomnia: Bad mattresses can also deprive you of sleep entirely. Insomnia can be a cumulative condition, especially with aggravating factors like a worn-out, lumpy mattress. No sleep itself only leads to further problems down the road, such as increasing your risk of diabetes.

3.      Effects of Sleep Deprivation: Our bodies need sleep to function, and without this valuable recharge time our performance becomes affected. Irritability, confusion, and of course fatigue are all symptoms that can ruin a workday, and just about any day after a night without quality rest will bring these effects. 

Serious, long-term sleep deprivation can lead to issues with your physical and mental health, so if your old mattress is to blame, exchange it for a new one as soon as possible. Contact Mancini’s Sleepworld at (800) 641-5337 and ditch your old uncomfortable mattress for a new and advanced comfort system. Call us or visit us online to explore our selection, and get ready to sleep well.

How to Get a Good Night’s Sleep

Women are twice as likely to suffer from insomnia than men, but persistently missing out on a restful night can affect anyone. If you’re having trouble falling asleep, relaxation is key, and that means both during the day and at night in a comfortable bed. 

As this video explains, the first step to fighting insomnia is recognizing what is keeping you from sleeping. Letting go of the day’s stress isn’t always as easy as it sounds, but making your bed a “sleep zone” can help. Watching TV, a lot of reading, and other activities keep your mind going, preventing you from settling into sleep. 

Mancini’s Sleepworld can help you achieve the perfect recharging rest by finding you the perfect mattress and bed. Contact us at (800) 641-5337 for more information.
