Past its sleep well date?

Is your bed is past its sleep well date? Is your mattress uncomfortable and saggy or is it time for a change of look in your bedroom? When you decide it is time to buy a new centre piece for your bedroom it is important to choose a bed and mattress that matches your style, lifestyle and sleeping situation. 

It’s easy to get carried away and only focus on how it looks!

But there’s more to choosing a good bed than simply its aesthetic appeal. From hidden storage to beds designed for specific mattress types, there is plenty to think about before parting with your well earned cash.

There are beds and mattresses for light sleepers, heavy sleepers, back sleepers, side sleeps, front sleepers and everyone in between! There are modern beds, traditional beds, beds with storage, electric beds, sofa beds … we could go on!

But what are the main points to consider when choosing your new sleeping companion?

Visit us

To make sure you’re choosing the best type of bed, simply seeing it online is not ideal. Visit us at Bennets Bedrooms in either Vilamoura or Almancil and try out the different styles, shapes and designs we have to ensure you find the best bed for you.

Don’t just look at it, lie on it

While you are in our store we suggest you try before you buy - yes that’s right lie down on every bed to see which one feels best for you. We’re all different and one bed isn’t made for everybody. People’s requirements for support will differ, so you need to be really comfortable with your decision.

The size of your room

Overall bedroom size should always be taken into account. If the bedroom is small, a massive bed won’t be for you. To relax properly you need to have reasonable space around your bed. If you’re buying for a multifunctional space maybe consider a sofa bed or how about an Ottoman bed? These are the best type for those with small rooms or little storage space.

Make sure it looks good as well as feels good

If you like a clean, modern and sleek look in your bedroom, go for a bed such as our Ritz Mammoth Plus bed set. However, if you like a more classic look, search for a traditional bed such as our Benjamin Victoria bed set. We have styles to suit everyone.

Beds and mattresses should work together

Where possible you should buy a new bed and a new mattress at the same time, because a new mattress on an old bed won’t last as long as it would on a new one.


No matter your bed or mattress preferences, buying a bed is one of the most important decisions you make for yourself and your family. Consider room size, mattress comfort and style preferences before choosing the bed of your dreams. And, trust us: That bed does exist - and it’s waiting for you in store today.
