  • National Bed Month March 2015

    National Bed Month has now been running for more than 20 years andThe Sleep Council promotes the importance of staying healthy with the help of a good night’s sleep. The awareness campaign by The Sleep Council began in 1990 with the intention of using retailers like Memory Foam Warehouse to endorse the need for a comfortable sleeping environment

    Lisa Artis, spokesperson for the Sleep Council explains, ‘we are urging all retailers to get behind this annual promotion. It’s a great opportunity to promote the importance of a good, comfortable bed for a good night’s sleep’. The campaign is primarily an educational tool for the consumer, relaying the importance of a good mattress which should always be replaced when needed.

    The Sleep Council is a useful source of knowledge for consumers looking for a bed or mattress and what they should consider. The campaign not only raises awareness of the importance of a good night’s sleep for optimum health and wellbeing but provides helpful advice and tips to improve the quality of your sleep.

    Choosing the right bed can be trickNational Bed Federation Approvedy but if you follow The Sleep Council’s advice then you can look forward to great night’s sleep. As mattress buying is a big investment, consumers want to feel reassured they have bought a quality product. Simply look out for the ‘big tick logo’ and you will know that you have bought a bed from a safe and honest bed manufacturer. Created by the National Bed Federation, the ‘NBF approved’ logo means that bed manufacturers have been independently audited and authenticated as producers of hygienic and high quality mattresses. Jessica Alexander puts it simply, ‘The new NBF Approved logo means people can buy a mattress in the certain knowledge that it is safe, clean and honest.’

    This year, The Sleep Council have also released a revision of their famous Bed Buyers Guide. As demand for information on how to choose the right bed remains higher than ever, the guide gives consumers all the relevant advice needed to make an informed purchase. You can access the guide online from The Sleep Council’s website.

    Memory Foam Warehouse have an extensive range of NBF approved memory foam mattresses, providing a comfortable sleep night after night. With a shared dedication of highlighting the importance of a safe and hygienic sleeping environment, all our mattresses offer unique health benefits so you can wake up feeling refreshed.

  • Celebrating sleep for National Bed Month

    Join us this March to celebrate National Bed Month!

    This month at Memory Foam Warehouse, we're celebrating National Bed Month!

    National Bed Month is organised by The Sleep Council and reinforces our belief in how important it is to get a good night’s sleep. Spring represents new beginnings so March is the perfect time to contemplate your own health and well-being. One of the most important factors for overall well-being is undoubtedly getting a good nights sleep. Adequate sleep (as part of a healthy lifestyle) is proven to improve your concentration, performance at work, happiness, skin, weight and much more.

    Good nights sleep

    Here at Memory Foam Warehouse we love nothing more than sleep. There is no better feeling than getting in to a freshly changed bed and sinking in to a memory foam mattress. However, if you get in to bed and don’t feel this sense of comfort, it may be time to invest in a new bed or mattress (or both!).

    Before deciding whether it's time to upgrade your bed and mattress, we would advise answering the questions below from The Sleep Council

    Is the bed seven years old or more?
    Would it be embarrassing if neighbours saw it without its covers?
    Does it make suspicious noises in the night?
    Did you have your best recent night’s sleep in a bed other than yours?
    Are you waking up more frequently unrefreshed and aching?
    Do you and your partner roll towards each unintentionally in the middle of the night?
    Do you have enough space to sleep comfortably?
    Is it sagging?
    Are the legs or castors worn out?
    Does it feel lumpy in the night?

    If you answered 'yes' to five or more of these questions, we would recommend it's time to start looking for a new bed and mattress!

    To celebrate National Bed Month, Memory Foam Warehouse is offering 10% off every bed frame when purchased with a mattress of the same size.

  • Everyone’s Talking About Memory Foam Mattress Toppers!

    Have you tried a memory foam mattress topper yet?

    If not, it’s time to wake up and join the mattress topper revolution! Adding a topper to your mattress will create a sumptuous sleeping environment and can help to alleviate aches and pains.. you'll never want to get out of bed again! We recently heard a memory foam discussion on Heart FM in which the presenter expresses his excitement at buying a memory foam mattress topper. It seems the people of Yorkshire are pretty excited about memory foam too! You can listen to the full clip here:

    We always advise our customers that a memory foam mattress topper cannot solve the problem of an old dipped or damaged mattress. We do however, recommend a mattress topper to aid pressure relief and act as an additional layer of comfort to a firm or tired mattress. If your mattress is in a bad condition with lumps or dips then we would recommend a new memory foam mattress.

    Memory Foam Mattress Topper

    We stock a wide range of memory foam mattress toppers with a variety in density and thickness and a choice of covers for heat regulation during the night. You can read a bit more about how to select the right memory foam topper for you in our previous post 'How to Choose a Memory Foam Mattress Topper'. Or read for yourself on our review sites! The Memory Foam Warehouse has over 10,000 independent reviews across Feefo, Review Centre and Trust Pilot so you can find out what our customers are saying about our mattress toppers.

  • New Range Launch! 4th Generation HD Memory Foam Mattress Range

    Memory Foam Warehouse is proud to present our new 4th Generation HD Memory Foam Mattress Range: For Cooling Comfort throughout the night. This new 4G memory foam mattress will revolutionise your sleep with its innovation in foam technology. With this new range recently launched, we thought we’d share some more information on this amazing memory foam mattress and its benefits.

    4G Memory Foam Mattress

    Standard memory foam features a fully responsive design and offers a range of health benefits that promote a quality sleep. Memory foam moulds to the contours of your body, reacting to movement and body temperature and eliminating pressure points. However, due to the cell formation of memory foam and its absorption of body heat during the night, your sleeping environment can get a little warm. Whilst this can be alleviated with the use of a heat regulating Coolmax or Outlast mattress cover, a 4G HD Memory Foam Mattress provides a direct cooling solution in the advanced design of the foam.

    The unique open cell structure of 4G HD Memory Foam prevents the foam from compressing when bodyweight is applied. The ventilated structure creates a conductive pathway for body heat to pass through the mattress, creating a cooler sleeping environment. This is also enhanced by the gel particles infused in the memory foam, working with the aerated design to bring you cooling comfort all night long. The 4G design also reacts much faster to heat meaning the memory foam relaxes quickly in response to your body, reducing stiffness and creating a restful and comfortable sleep environment.

    All our 4th Generation HD Memory Foam Mattresses also include an antibacterial Adaptive Purotex mattress cover which works to combat common night time allergies. Purotex is an active probiotic which is woven in to the fabric to absorb mositure and eliminate dust mites so you can enjoy a healthy and restful sleep as well as experiencing superior comfort.

    4G Memory Foam Matress

    Why not see for yourself and enjoy a cooling, comforting night's sleep with a 4G HD Memory Foam Mattress today! As an introductory promotion we are offering £50 off each mattress in the 4G range including the 4G Deluxe, 4G Ultra and 4G Pocket. Enter voucher code '4GINTRO' at checkout to redeem. Terms and conditions apply.

  • National Sleep In Day: Sunday 26th October 2014

    In the early hours of Sunday morning, whilst we are all sleeping peacefully, the clocks of Britain will move backwards by one hour. Now, this is not an opportunity to be wasted - the nation is only treated to an extra hour in bed once a year! To ensure that your Sunday morning slumber is a total dream, we have compiled a list of top tips to help you create the perfect sleep in conditions ...

    1. Alarm-Free Zone

    There is only one thing worse than being rudely awoken by the dreaded sound of your weekday alarm on National Sleep In Day ... being rudely awoken by your partner's alarm! So before you hit the pillow on Saturday night, ensure that all mobile phones and alarm clocks have been disabled.

    2. Blackout!

    In preparation for National Sleep In Day, take extra care when closing your curtains. You want to ensure that every single beam of early morning light is kept outside, allowing your sleep in to pass undisturbed.

    3. Mattress

    At Memory Foam Warehouse we understand the crucial difference a good mattresses makes to the quality of your sleep. If you find your current mattress uncomfortable and unsupportive, your chances of a luxurious sleep in are very slim! Our memory foam mattresses provide full body support, pressure relief and luxurious comfort. Now that sounds like the perfect recipe for a lie in!

    4. Temperature Control

    The optimal room temperature for a good night's sleep is between 16 and 18 degrees Celsius. Most people don't sleep with a  thermometer on their bedside table, so simply ensure that your bedroom is well ventilated and that the tog of your duvet is suitable for the current season. In addition, our products come with the option of two SMART fabric covers, Coolmax or Outlast,  which work to regulate your body temperature throughout the night.

    5. No Alcohol

    Alcohol may help you to drift off initially, however it is definitely not a sleep aid. Alcoholic drinks play havoc with your sleeping pattern during the night, often disturbing your slumber due to dehydration. So, to make the very most of National Sleep In Day stick to soft drinks the night before.

    From all of us at Memory Foam Warehouse, happy National Sleep In Day!

  • #Wakeupcall for UNICEF's Emergency Syria Fund!

    People across the world are uploading their #wakeupcall selfies to Twitter and Facebook to raise money for UNICEF's Emergency Syria Fund.

    Stars including Jemima Khan, Jeremy Clarkson and Stephen Fry have joined the movement, sharing snaps of their sleepy morning faces on social media sites with the caption #wakeupcall.

    The devastating Syrian conflict, which has been raging on for three years now, has left 6.5 million children orphaned, injured and mentally scarred. This year UNICEF has already vaccinated over 2.8 million Syrian children against polio, whilst also offering psychological support. However, there are still millions of affected children who need to be helped.

    It is hoped that the #wakeupcall craze will raise both funds and awareness for the Syrian children, therefore allowing UNICEF to expand their work.

    To get involved, have your phone at the ready when you wake up tomorrow morning. Upload your #wakeupcall selfie, donate to the emergency appeal at and encourage your friends and family to do the same!

  • The National Mattress Scam

    How would you feel if you found out that your newly purchased mattress had actually been dragged out of a skip?

    Well, for a shocking number of people in the U.K. this nightmarish situation is a reality. Hundreds, if not thousands, of consumers are being conned every week by rogue traders selling used mattresses out of the back of their vans.

    Last week Jeremy Vine highlighted the national scale of the scam on his BBC Radio 2 radio show, with listeners calling in from across the country to share their experiences of fraudulent salesmen. Thousands of households have been left out of pocket with nothing but a broken, smelly or damaged mattress to show for it.

    Perhaps even more disturbing, however, are the counterfeit mattresses which appear undamaged to the consumer. It is impossible to see what is lurking under the surface of a pre-used mattress without opening it up, but we can tell you that it's not pleasant ....

    Plastic packaging and a clean mattress cover may seem like a good indication of what is inside your mattress - but don't be fooled by these tricks of the trade. Not only will a pre-used mattress contain the moisture and sweat of it's previous owner, but during its time in the trash a counterfeit mattress is likely to have collected dirt, mould, insects and their eggs, and even animal urine.

    The thought of sleeping on an unhygienic mattress is certainly enough to send shivers down your spine, however this is not the only issue with pre-used mattresses ... or the most dangerous. Many of the old mattresses which are being sold on do not meet current national flammability regulations, therefore a pre-used product could be putting your life at risk.

    The number of U.K. households using potentially flammable mattresses is so worrying that the issue has been raised in Parliament. Thankfully, the National Bed Federation (NBF) has taken action to stop the work of the dodgy dealers. Earlier this year the NBF introduced a new mark of approval, pictured above, to allow customers to sleep peacefully, safe in the knowledge that their mattress has passed the most up to date national flammability, health, hygiene and trade description regulations.

    For Memory Foam Warehouse the health and safety of our customers is more than a priority - it's a necessity. All of our memory foam mattresses have been rigorously tested and approved by the NBF, so if you are on the hunt for a good night's sleep at an affordable price, you need look no further!
