A Feng Shui Bed Will Fix All Your Sleeping Problems

By Gen Y Copy Image source There’s only one thing worse than waking up in the middle of the night (because you drank one too many cups of tea before bed) and having to shuffle across the freezing cold tiles in your bathroom and that is not sleeping well.

Happiness Is A Quick Nap On The Sofa Bed

By Gen Y Copy Image source   This may sound a little sad, but there will come a time in your life where you second-guess the point of your spare room.

Be Our Guest: Getting Your Spare Room Ready For The Holidays

  By Gen Y Copy Image source   Everyone has a room in their home, usually upstairs, where the door sits barely-ajar for three seasons a year, only ever creaking open when you have something that needs storing out of sight.

By Gen Y Copy Image source   Believe it or not, I’ve just got back from an Indiana Jones-type adventure that took me across thirteen continents and two galaxies, before I ended up enduring a rather expensive taxi ride across the Forbidden Hills of Guatemala, all in the hope of discovering the ancient Scrolls of Bedgasm which, according to legend, hid The Four Rules Of A Great Night’s Sleep. The bad news is, I’m exhausted. The good news is, my exploit was not in vain for I am now considered to be the Harrison Ford of the bed world having

That’s right. Most people spend 33.333333333% of their day in bed, fast asleep, dreaming about Matthew McConaughey in Sahara (what? Just us! Damn!). Of course, there are exceptions to this rule. I mean, if you are a new parent then you’ve probably forgotten what the words ‘sleep’ and ‘normal’ mean and if you are a student
