Home improvement projects are often framed in a grand context – extending the property, redecorating the home, going green by installing solar panels or priming the garden for a barbecue summer (even if 2019 is turning out to be a damp squib).
These are all perfectly respectable home improvement ventures and installing a renewable energy system in particular is worthwhile. However, sometimes the smallest improvement can make the most dramatic difference to a home. Indeed, sometimes all it takes is a new item of furniture.
One of the most important rooms of the home is the bedroom, which will ideally be a relaxing and quiet environment. Whilst homeowners take great care in ensuring that the bedroom is suitably decorated, the bed is often overlooked. Moreover, the quality of mattress is usually given scant regard when this is arguably the most essential component of the home. Indeed, sleep is obviously important to all human beings. Numerous studies have established that, on average, adults require around eight hours of sleep each night. Furthermore, the quality of this period of sleep predominantly affects the frequency at which sleeping disorders occur, which are themselves linked to a number of serious health conditions such as heart disease, cancer and various mental disorders. More generally, a bad night’s sleep can also contribute to muscular and joint pains, especially those affecting the back.
Therefore, a high quality mattress and bed are sensible purchases that could be classed as home improvements. Top quality mattresses such as the Miracoil 7 Nova Dream Pocket 2100 are designed to provide the perfect sleeping experience and can seriously improve sleep related health – even if a mattress in excess of £1000 raises the blood pressure!
