Sleep plays an important role in our health and these days it is more important than ever to keep our immune systems as healthy as can be. Lack of sleep can affect your immune system and studies show that people who don’t get quality sleep or enough sleep are more likely to get sick and/or take longer to recover.
In a recent survey of women across the USA conducted by WomenCertified Inc, data shows:
81% of women believe a good night’s sleep contributes to her overall health.
94% of women believe that the right mattress will prevent tossing and turning thereby helping her sleep better
43% of women said that increasing sleep discomfort followed by 21% who said needing to change the size of the mattress was a reason to look for a new mattress
40% of women surveyed believe that you should replace a mattress every 10 years.
78% of women stated cost was a reason for prolonging the decision to change a mattress followed by 36% who felt that their mattress was still in good condition after 10 years
Top sleep challenges prohibiting women from getting a good night sleep were: Back/joint pain, temperature (getting too hot/cold) and a close third place tie of tossing/turning, partner disturbance, and insomnia
Mattresses should be replaced every 8-10 years. While your mattress may look fine on the outside, did you know that an eight-year-old mattress contains more than 10 pounds of dead skin cells and the average bed is home to six billion dust mites. You read that correctly: six billion!
I don’t know about you but that alone makes me want a new mattress today!
Since you spend a ⅓ of your life on a mattress, it is important that the mattress meet your needs. Mattresses are not all the same. Making sure you have a good, clean mattress is key to getting good sleep.
While a mattress is a costly investment, think of it as an investment in your health. A fresh mattress will help you sleep better and in turn keep your immune system healthy.
The Shippable Scott Living Mattress by Restonic Mattress has made a huge difference in my sleep. I am so appreciative of the quality rest and sleep I have gotten lately. I would strongly suggest giving Restonic a try and you will find that the mattress is a balance of firm and soft – middle of the road. The mattress is so comfortable with the right amount of comfort for a full night’s sleep. The pictures shown are of a queen mattress – highly recommended.
The mattress comes in the mail, bubble wrapped, and completely covered and protected. This mattress is rolled and easier to carry up the stairs. I highly recommend carrying up to the location in the box, then opening and removing from the box where it will flatten very quickly.
The Shippable Scott Living Mattress has an individually wrapped coil base and has coil edging to provide extra support under the memory foam/gel top layer.
Restonic has earned the Women’s Choice Award as a highly recommended mattress brand by women across the USA and I can see why!
Staging sets the scene for your home. This allows a buyer to have an emotional connection to the space you have. Staging your space is done in layers.
Base: Primary Item
The most necessary items needed for the purpose of the room. For example a bed, a desk, a table and chairs
Layer 1: Secondary items that contribute to the function of the space
Side tables, lighting, occasional seating
Layer 2: Accent Pieces
Rugs, Artwork. These items accent the “style” or bridge differing styles with color and texture
Layer 3: “Icing” Pieces
These are comfort pieces and add to the luxury of the space. They beckon the viewer to feel compelled to interact within the space.
A well staged space will have a common thread that runs throughout the design. But don’t dwell on a single tone. Just as a song, a well staged room has highs and lows to engage a person using the space. Find a base color and accent with both lighter and deeper shades. Accent a room with accessories that round out the theme. Most items in a room should be a “middle” tone with a few special accents. Too many and there they get lost to an overstimulated mind. Use multiple fabric textures between the soft seating, the floor coverings and accent pillows.
The most challenging area can be closet space:
Notice the space is light and airy and is mostly white hangers and is not bulging with clothing. The majority of clothing was packed up to give a bigger feel to the room.
You will notice all white (Sherwin Williams Extra White) on trim, doors, and cabinets. The walls in most spaces is (Sherwin Williams Versatile Grey) and the Bathroom Vanity and Kitchen Island (Benjamin Moore Kendall Charcoal but paint from Sherwin Williams) the closet ceiling is a foam green to create a more spacious feel. Paint is an easy fix to stage a house and can add a large value to the end price. More pictures to come on the before and after.
