It's National Stop Snoring Week!

Thursday, 23 April 2015

If you’ve been rudely kept from your slumber during the night by a snoring partner — or if you’re the snorer yourself — you’ll know that snoring can be pretty annoying. But did you know that beyond that, it can be a health concern? This week is National Stop Snoring Week, and the British Snoring and Sleep Apnoea Association is raising awareness about sleep apnoea and the possible health risks it can present.

Happy Allergy Awareness Week!

Monday, 20 April 2015

It’s Allergy Awareness Week! As the weather gets warmer, you have a whole host of new allergens to contend with. Not only does hay fever start to rear its ugly head around this time of year, but pesky dust mites can find their way into your home, causing dust allergies that can really disrupt your sleep. Dust mites can be a problem the whole year round, but they prefer warm, humid environments, and a dust allergy can make other allergy symptoms, including hay fever symptoms, much worse.

Rising Stars: Healthosleep's Memory Foam Mattresses

Thursday, 26 March 2015

Did you know that memory foam has its origins in space travel? That’s right, one of the bedding industry’s most comfortable components was created by NASA! Originally created to provide better crash protection and seat cushioning for pilots, memory foam has since been used for sports equipment, medical purposes, and of course, mattresses.

But up-and-coming manufacturers Healthosleep want to get back to memory foam’s space roots, as demonstrated by their brand new Space Collection! These are top-of-the-range memory foam mattresses, each containing at least 75mm of high-density memory foam for outstanding comfort and support.

Mattressman Gets Behind the Nook Appeal!

Thursday, 19 March 2015

We are delighted to announce that this year we have pledged to raise £25,000 for the Nook Appeal! East Anglia Children’s Hospices (EACH) hope to build a purpose-built hospice, the Nook, for life-threatened children in East Anglia.

The Nook, which will be based just outside Norwich, will have some fantastic new features for the children and families who visit, including a larger and more accessible care area, hydrotherapy and sensory rooms, en-suite bathrooms for all bedrooms, a quiet “haven” and an outdoor play area. It’s a brilliant cause and we at Mattressman are really looking forward to playing our part in making the Nook a reality!

We have already donated £10,000 and have lots of ideas for how we can raise the other £15,000 over the course of the year. You can find out more about the Nook Appeal, as well as keep an eye on our progress as we work towards our fundraising goal, on our Nook Appeal page! Alternatively, you can have a look at EACH’s work at, or read more about our involvement here.
