Getting a good night's sleep is paramount. According to the National Sleep Foundation, adults need at least seven to nine hours of sleep nightly. A comfortable bed can help you rest better after a long day and get the recommended amount of shut-eye.
Hypnos, a family-owned company in Great Britain, has produced handmade beds for more than four generations. With a philosophy of quality and comfort, the Hypnos trademark is a handcrafted calico encased pocket-spring bed. The attention is in the details as the mattresses use only natural fillings and the springs are balanced. The mattresses are routinely tested for quality and fit for royalty. Among Hypnos clients is the Queen of England.
In July 2008, Kaymed Beds introduced a line of beds with a fully adjustable electronic inflation system that users can make as soft or firm as they choose. The system includes six individual air sacks that support the head, lumbar and legs. Users should be able to find a comfortable position with more than 4,200 combinations available.
The Swedish company Hastens was named by CNN Money and the New York Times as a comfortable means to fall asleep, but the price tag could be an issue for many. Hastens uses horsehair as the filling for its mattresses versions, declining to use latex in any of its products. Hastens beds are expensive, though, with some models costing $60,000.
