There’s no place like home?

There’s no place like home?

The popular phrase “there’s no place like home” certainly worked for Dorothy as she frantically tried to get home from the Land of Oz, to the comfortable and familiar settings of her house and belongings. Many of us apply the mantra to the end of a holiday or work trip, sighing “it’s been great, but, I can’t wait to get back to my own bed”.

However, these days, most hotels and other accommodation providers pride themselves in creating a ‘home from home’ haven, with added luxury and comfort to enhance your stay, and at times leave guests saying “I slept better than I did at home”. When looking to recreate such an environment in your own bedroom, there are a few little changes you can make.

First of all, consider investing in a mattress topper. Whether you have a kingsize mattress, a double or a single, a feather-based or memory foam topper can transform your sleeping experience, as it adds an air of floating in the clouds.

Talking of mattresses, they are a vital element in securing a quality night’s sleep, and the decision as to which one to get should not be taken lightly. Go for a good quality product, which provides the right level of support for your body. Try a few out before deciding, as this will make difference between a restful or disturbed sleep.

Just a few simple changes, along with making sure the room is kept dark and free of distracting technology, can help transform your sleep environment, and ultimately the quality of sleep you achieve.
