Quality sleep is what plays an important role in our day-to-day lives and activities. Our mental and physical health ultimately depends on it. So when you start to experience nights where you're not getting enough sleep, or you're finding it hard to relax in general, it can negatively affect your mood and how you feel throughout the rest of the day. That's why we're here to make sure that you have help when you need it most. We're passionate about ensuring our customers can get a night of better sleep with the help of our Canadian-made furniture and a new mattress that suits their particular needs. Your bed is the focal point in your room and quite possibly the most important piece of furniture that you’ll ever own, so ensuring it looks and feels good is very important. 


Here are some tips to follow when it comes to creating a bedroom for better sleep:



1. Say Goodnight To Electronics

Did you know that using electronics at night, particularly 30-60 minutes before bedtime, can interfere with your sleeping patterns? For both kids and adults alike, saying goodnight to your electronics before you go to bed, such as your phone, tablet, laptop, or TV can limit the amount of blue light you're intaking, as well as decrease your alertness. You want to feel sleepy, not be distracted by your electronic device. The more blue light you expose yourself to, the more alert you may feel.

2. Use Calm & Neutral Colours

As tempting as it is to introduce a vibrant and fun wallpaper or colour to your bedroom, this can actually negatively impact your sleep. You should design your room with muted colours and pastels in mind, like light blue, green, or more neutral colours like white and beige. Use vibrant colours in accents like artwork or decorative pillows for your bed instead. Overall, using a calm, cooler and lighter colour can decrease one's stress levels, blood pressure and heart rate. They're also easier to decorate with!

3. Your Mattress Makes A Huge Difference

Replacing your mattress may seem like a daunting task at first, but it may make a huge difference in the way that you sleep, and feel. It's especially important to have a good mattress according to your specific needs, like if you need a bed that's more firm or soft, one that has massage settings and lets you adjust your head and feet, or a mattress that simply fits your new bedroom space. 


A great example is Serta’s Motion Essential Adjustable Lifestyle Base. It has a wireless remote that lets you adjust the head and foot of the mattress and whisper-quiet massage settings to help lull you to sleep. 


Whatever you need, we have the right bed for you that can suit your needs so you have a good sleep every single night. And to make your shopping experience hassle-free, we can help you choose the best Canadian-made bed for you and your room both in-person or online.

4. Less Clutter, More Room

Just as important as it is to lay your electronics to rest or design your room with certain colours, keeping your bedroom clutter-free is also a good way to ensure you get a good night’s rest. It is important to keep your bedroom a bedroom, not a space for stuff. A cluttered bedroom can create more anxiety instead of helping you to relax and wind down for sleep. After all, your bedroom should be an escape from the chaos of your everyday life. 


A great way to declutter and organise your bedroom is by getting a bed with built-in storage space. Durham Furniture’s Milestone Collection features a lift bed that lets you store things like bed linens under your mattress. Out of sight but still in reach. Another thing we love about Durham Furniture is that their hardwood furniture is handmade in Durham, Ontario. Not far from Smitty’s Hanover showroom. 




Sleep Better With Smitty’s!

We tend to get so wrapped up in getting through the day that we forget how important it is to get our nights ‘right’ as well. Getting a night of good sleep helps restore your energy so that you can seize the day ahead with confidence. Ensure you get proper sleep by following our recommendations: put your electronics down, design your room with calm colours in mind, and utilize the Smitty's team to find a mattress and storage solutions that work best for you and your bedroom. There are mattresses (and pillows) designed for every type of sleeper. Our sales consultants can help you find one that suits your needs, so make sure to speak with our experienced consultants to ensure you get the right ones. We even have a “Sleep Test” machine in our stores that allow you to determine the type of mattress and firmness you should be shopping for.
