Our Bed Guide

Let Highland Blindcraft help you make the right choice

We spend roughly a third of our lives in bed, between six and eight hours each night – so getting the right bed is so important. And that’s what we’re here for. To help you make the right choice at the right price. This guide will help inform you on the choices that are available.

And please don’t hesitate to call a member of staff if you want further details about any bed or mattress.

Beds made easy!

The various types of beds

Divans – these act as bases for mattresses and either have springs or a solid top which provides firmer support. Divans are available with drawers to provide additional storage. We can also make divans to any size you want, here in our workshops. Just ask for details.

Bed frames – available in wood, metal or leather. Available in all sizes: single, small double, double, king size and super king.

Headboards – these are, of course, an optional extra. Most divans are sold without one so you have a more flexible choice. Choose from our extensive selection of headboards and fabrics.

The various types of mattress construction

If you visit our show rooms – the graphic icons below, can be seen on the end of bed information panels. Look for the symbol that matches the mattress type.

OPEN COIL

Continuous open coil spring

This is a popular choice. Separate springs are arranged in rows and connected to one another by a spiral wire. An outer rod strengthens the mattress.

POCKET SPRUNG

Is a luxurious sleeping experience with the highest level of support. Each spring is contained in its own individual fabric pocket. This enables the springs to work independently of one another.

This offers unique support to the body, preventing pressure points

MEMORY FOAM

This is a relatively new type of material. It has a unique feel and responds to your body temperature and weight. It recovers its original shape when the heat and pressure is removed.

Memory foam is a combination of support and comfort, with good pressure relieving properties.

The various types of mattress firmness

If you visit our show rooms – the graphic icons below, can be seen on the end of bed information panels. Look for the symbol that matches the mattress type.

SOFT to MEDIUM

Ideal if you sleep on your side. It lets your shoulders and hips sink into the mattress while supporting the rest of your body.

MEDIUM

Excellent if you sleep on your side, but prefer a slightly firmer feel.

MEDIUM to FIRM

The ideal option if you change position a lot and sleep on your side and your back.

FIRM

An excellent choice if you sleep on your back or on your front with a medium height pillow.
