Create the perfect nights rest: Start Here

Create the perfect nights rest

A sound, refreshing sleep is vital to healthy living and wellbeing. So, making your bedroom a haven of comfort and rest is not something that should be compromised. The MyHouse buying guide for bedding, provides you with expert advice on the benefits of a bed topper, the importance of selecting the perfect sheet set, the difference between memory foam and down pillows, as well as every layer in between. These are the ultimate foundations for building your best possible sleep and best possible self.

 

Here’s our guide to creating your ideal bed:

1

Start with a Bed Topper/ Mattress Protector  

A Mattress Topper can improve the quality of your sleep and meet all your comfort requirements, at a fraction of the cost of investing in a brand new mattress. Key factors that you should be looking for in a topper include the below:

  • High Loft Fibre fill – This material is soft, non-allergenic, warm and breathable, and is designed to protect against dust mites/allergens, whilst also having a high warmth/comfort rating. For those who are busy, there’s an added benefit of being machine washable and easy to care for.
  • Feather fill – this is supportive, comfortable and luxurious. A feather base creates a supporting layer, whilst rich down ensures superior comfort. The St Anton Feather Topper was carefully constructed with 40% feather and 60% down which is an unbeatable combination for cushioning, comfort and support.

Selecting the Sheet Set:

It is more important to select your sheets based on the season, rather than solely on the thread count:

Autumn/Winter

You have two options which will create warmth during the colder months
  • Flannelette Sheet Sets - Made from 100% cotton, flannelette is wonderfully soft and snuggly. The fluffy nature of these sheets will feel warm instantly and will retain body heat throughout the night.
  • High thread count sheets –A higher thread count sheet will be thicker and cosier than a sheet with a lower thread count. More threads also allow for less airflow so that you can stay insulated within your sheets on those colder nights.

 

Spring/Summer

Breathability is what you’ll be looking for in those warmer months. We have two clear winners here:
  • Bamboo Cotton - this material is soft, light, breathable and versatile, the perfect formula for a summer sheet. The natural fibres will regulate body temperature and draw moisture away from the body, ensuring you get a seamless sleep all year round. Also ideal for those with skin sensitivities.
  • Milk Cotton – made from a delicately spun blend of brushed cotton and milk fibre, this sheet set is light and naturally luxurious. We are proud to be the first to market this eco friendly, sublimely soft and breathable product in Australia.

 

Transeasonal

If you’re looking for versatile sheets, suitable for all temperatures, look no further than the below:
  • Jersey Sheet Sets - Incredibly cosy and wonderfully warm to sleep in, Jersey stretch material captures everything you love about your favourite t-shirt. This material is low maintenance, versatile, affordable and above all, comfortable – you won’t want to take it off all year round.
  • Whilst Bamboo Cotton and Egyption Cotton are perfect for summer because of their breathability, cotton is also a great natural insulator, meaning these materials will automatically adjust to regulate your body temperature no matter what time of year.

Quilt time

You have three options when it comes to selecting a cosy Quilt;

  • Down Quilts - For warmth without the weight! Control your level of warmth without compromising on comfort with a luxurious feather down quilt. The more down content, the better the quilt will be for warmth and insulation. We have a family style Panorama, a supreme St Anton or the ultimate Chamonix which are all encased in a high thread count Egyptian cotton sateen cover.
  • Wool Quilts - As a natural fibre, wool has the ability to adjust to the body’s temperature. It’s breathable temperature control mechanism allows the filling to absorb moisture in summer and trap heat in winter. Again, you can select your desired level of warmth with the amount of wool filling within the quilt.
  • Cotton Quilts - Cotton is a natural material known for its comfort, quality and softness. Cotton is considered to be cooler than other quilt materials because it’s thinner, lighter and more breathable.

The Perfect Pillow

Understanding the fill and the casing, as well as knowing which sleeping position you favour, are keys to ensuring you select the right pillow for you. Our expert buying guide will help you discover your dream pillow which will lay the foundations for the perfect night’s rest.

Ultimate Luxury
A feather down fill will naturally form to your body providing a supportive yet cosy layer of comfort. The forever luxurious feathers in our Feather Loft Pillow are ultra-soft, but will maintain their shape to help support your head and neck whilst you rest. These pillows can last up to 10 years and are resilient and breathable because they are made of a natural material. Suitable for both back and side sleepers.

Memory Foam
This material moulds to your individual shape, encouraging good sleeping posture whilst delivering comfort. We have a range of memory foam pillows to support varying profiles to ensure your muscles are relaxed and rested no matter which way you sleep

Neck Support
If you suffer from tight neck muscles and need a little extra support, choose a Comfort Rest pillow or a Tamworth Wool Blend pillow. These contouring pillows encourage good sleeping posture, ease neck cramping and pressure point aches, and also assist in keeping airways open. Suitable for side sleepers.
