It’s National Bed Month in March, so there’s no better time to upgrade your bed. The Resident, together with Feather & Black, is offering one lucky reader the chance to win one of Feather & Black’s best beds, the Louis king-size bed worth £6,749!

As well as the bedstead in a standard house fabric of their choice, the prize includes a Belgravia Mattress from Feather & Black’s exclusive London Collection. To see all of their fabric options, see featherandblack.com. If you’d like to upgrade the size of your mattress and/or bedstead, all you need to do is pay the difference.

Organised by The Sleep Council, National Bed Month aims to promote a better night’s sleep, and the best place to start is your bed. ‘It’s about reassessing your sleep quality and comfort levels,’ says Lisa Artis of The Sleep Council, which has developed a simple bed MOT (Mattress Obsolescence Test) – a two-minute-test that should be done every year after the first three to five years; and every six months after that. Find the test online here.

‘Research shows buying a new bed can lead to a real improvement in sleep – up to an hour extra – and if you sleep better you feel much better,’ says Lisa. ‘The right bed is extremely important to health and wellbeing because our sleeping environment will affect the quality of our sleep – which in turn has a big effect on how well we feel, both physically and psychologically.  A bed with the correct support, comfort and space will ensure you wake less, move about less, are less disturbed by your partner and are less likely to wake up feeling tired or aching. Remember to buy as big as you can and spend as much as you can afford.’

To enter the Feather and Black competition, visit your nearest London store (Fulham, Chiswick, Kingston, East Sheen & Tottenham Court Road) and complete a competition card, alternatively enter online at featherandblack.com/residentcomp. The competition closes on Wednesday 13 April 2016.
