For 60 years, Prestige Beds have been the go to company for those seeking bed shops in Manchester and across Lancashire. They share their expert advice on how to get a good night’s sleep in the summer months.
Spring is here at last. The air is warming and the nights are shortening, which are the first signs that we’re due higher temperatures in our bedrooms. Your sleep may become lighter and more restless. But this is a great excuse to get rid of an older, outdated mattress and make way for a spring clean that’ll freshen up your night-time routine.
Here’s what a new mattress can do for you as the seasons change.
A cooler sleep base
Dense layers of material can be too warm for spring and summer. The thicker it is, the more heat it will trap. Plus, your current mattress could be 10 years old or more… Well-lived mattresses lose their ability to regulate warmth effectively as a natural result of compression and sinking over time. It’s much better to go for a contemporary model that’s been built with modern mattress design in mind.
Gel hybrid mattresses, for example, are very adaptable. They keep you perfectly toasty or cool because they absorb and regulate your body temperature. What’s more, they’re reliable. Gel foam inserts take many, many years to wear down. You’ll have an all-round mattress that fits the season, whenever the air changes.
It’s about your wellbeing too
During winter, we’re betting that you don’t open your window as much. And that makes sense; better to conserve heat than to let it escape. Yet your mattress hasn’t been exposed to fresh air for several months, leaving a masking of dust and (potentially) mites or bugs between the sheets.

Buying a new mattress means you aren’t exposed to any irritants. Start off summer with a fresh investment, and as you’ll have your windows open more during the following months, the condition will be maintained and you’ll have an irresistible, aired room to sleep in throughout the season and beyond.
You should always remain comfortable
Yes, we use less bedding than autumn or winter, but spring doesn’t mean you need to forgo a sense of cosiness. Far from it, in fact. Natural products can enfold you whilst letting heat out. 100% cotton is one of the finest solutions – a mattress topper, for example, will be totally breathable. The same goes for bamboo, another natural fibre.
Some duvets, meanwhile, are derived from wood pulp. They can align with a gel mattress to push the temperature down as you’re sleeping and wick away any moisture. With the added natural elements, you’re free of irritation too – and more comfort leads to sounder sleep.
