This National Bed Month, discover how the perfect Divan Bed, Base, Frame, or Ottoman can help transform your sleep.

National Bed Month in the UK, organised by the Sleep Council, highlights the importance of a quality bed for restorative sleep. This annual event prompts individuals to reconsider their sleep environment, emphasising the significance of having a comfortable and supportive bed for better sleep quality.

At Aspire, we are at the forefront of creating fantastic quality beds that optimise the essence of National Bed Month. From multifunctional Divan Beds to elegant Ottoman Beds, each product is designed with comfort, style and functionality in mind, catering to a wide range of bedroom decors.

What is a Divan Bed?

Divan Beds marry practical storage with bespoke aesthetics. At Aspire, our Divan Beds are all handcrafted at our factory in the heart of West Yorkshire.

The Grant Divan Set, with its sophisticated Napoli Linen fabric is the perfect mix of functionality and style. If you want to maximise the power of your space, choose from configurations with no drawers, two drawers, or four drawers, all featuring smooth ball-bearing glide movement for easy access to your belongings. 

The Olivier Divan Set exemplifies luxury with its Plush Velvet upholstery, providing extensive customisation options to accommodate a wide range of preferences, from subtle elegance to bold statements. This fabric elevates any bed to become the focal point of a room with its rich texture and visual appeal.

How to Get Better Quality Sleep

Quality sleep is essential for overall health and well-being, impacting cognitive function, mood, and physical health. To improve the quality of your sleep, it is crucial to establish healthy sleep habits and create a conducive sleep environment.

Establish a Consistent Sleep Schedule

Maintaining a regular sleep-wake routine is vital for improving the quality of your sleep. Going to bed and waking up at the same time every day, including weekends, helps regulate your body's internal clock, promoting better quality sleep.

Improve Your Sleep Environment

Creating a comfortable and relaxing bedroom environment is essential for quality sleep. Ensure your bedroom is dark, quiet, and cool, as these conditions promote better sleep. Even better, investing in a supportive mattress and pillows that suit your preferences can significantly improve your comfort during sleep.

Avoid Stimulants Before You Sleep

Limiting caffeine intake in the afternoon or evening can prevent difficulties falling asleep at night. Similarly, avoiding nicotine and alcohol close to bedtime can contribute to better sleep quality. These substances can disrupt your ability to fall asleep and stay asleep throughout the night.

Limit Screen Time Before Bed

Reducing exposure to electronic devices with screens before bedtime can enhance your ability to fall asleep easily. The blue light emitted by screens interferes with the production of melatonin, a hormone essential for regulating sleep patterns. Instead, opt for relaxing activities like reading or taking a warm shower before bed.

What is an Ottoman Bed?

Ottoman beds stand out for their sturdy construction and ease of use. The allure lies in their dual purpose; they offer not just a restful night's sleep but also come with a discreet storage solution. With gas-lift mechanisms allowing effortless access to storage, the space beneath the mattress becomes a convenient place to store bedding, clothing or any items that contribute to clutter, thus maintaining a neat and organised bedroom.

The Catherine Lansfield Soho Wing Ottoman Bed is upholstered in a durable and visually appealing twill fabric. The deep padding of the hand-upholstered, contemporary buttoned, winged headboard adds a touch of luxury and comfort, making it a perfect backdrop for relaxation and sleep. It's available in a variety of colours including grey, natural, and charcoal and finished with stylish solid hardwood feet.

Many of our ottoman beds offer vast storage easily accessed by gas lift pistons. The Catherine Lansfield is capable of lifting mattresses to 60kg with easy and safe access to the storage area, along with a dust sheet for cleanliness.
