Beware Marketing Hype

We have been in this industry for a very long time and we have seen it all over and over again — marketing hype! The use of exotic fibres, the reliance on well known brands and the marketing of “unique” spring systems are all part of the spiel used to market beds.Let’s have a look at how a mattress is made and how it is marketed. And then, let’s seperate the wheat from the chaff. These days, the majority of mattresses are built using one of two construction methods. Think of a mat...

Big Brands vs. Sleep Space

...There are a number of factors which come into play here, starting with our business structure.Firstly, we are a truly independent family business. This means that we don’t pay rebates and fees to a franchise head office. It also means that our suppliers don’t pay rebates to the same franchise head offices. All of these rebates must be built into the final price. This can mean at least a 20% difference in price before we even get to the construction of our beds.Secondly, we do not build in...

No Cost Quote & Advice

Now, we have plenty of people living in two and even three storey homes. The need for putting three or four bedroom homes on a very small footprint necessitated this. Unfortunately, this usually comes with the hassle of tiny, narrow stairwells. More and more we are encountering issues with not being able to get King, Queen and sometimes even Double beds up these stairs. We can avoid these problems if we know what to expect when we deliver and install. For that reason, we offer our...

Mattress Construction

We specialise in two iconic New Zealand mattress ranges, each hand built in New Zealand featuring pure New Zealand wool. These Dreamwool and Woola mattress ranges are all hand built and made to order. Unlike large mass produced mattresses which come off an assembly line, each one is hand crafted for its future owner. When we say a mattress has pure wool in its construction, we don't mean thin strands of wool blended with synthetic fibres, we mean pure wool. Similarly, wh...

The Perfect Fit: Finding the Right Size Mattress for You

Just like our wide range of mattresses, we’re all unique. Each of us have different body shapes, sleeping positions and living spaces, which is why choosing the right sized mattress is so important — have a partner that takes up more than their fair share of the bed? Upsizing could solve that. Are you tall or someone who tends to move down the bed while sleeping? A king single will provide you with a bit of extra leg room. Whatever your requirements are, at Sleep Space there’s a p...

New Zealand’s largest range of hand built bespoke beds!

Unlike the production line products that most major bedding brands pump out, at Sleep Space our hand built beds are handcrafted with integrity.  When we say we use natural NZ wool - that’s exactly what we mean, not thin strands of wool combined with synthetic fibre. When we say Merino - that’s what you get. We can even tell you the station the merino was sourced from! When we say we use latex - it is the best and purest available, not the cheap filler infused product...

Unpacking the ‘mystery of the mattress’ - what is really in your mattress?

It’s quite simple really, once you know what you’re looking for, but retailers will try to confuse you at every turn to give themselves an advantage in their quest for your hard earned dollar. Firstly, once you get past the marketing terminology that is put there to convince you that the best mattress for you is exclusive to the particular shop you’re in, you will find that, in most cases, the almost identical product can be bought from any number of retailers. In a minute we will go throu...

Why an adjustable bed IS for everyone!

Did you know that ONE in FOUR New Zealander’s are not getting enough sleep? You may think that you are well rested – but the truth is, adults need at least seven hours of sleep a night. And teenagers and children need even more! So why is it that we are struggling to sleep well New Zealand? Some of the reasons are pain, discomfort, and generally not being able to relax with the busy lives we lead. We are in an age of Go, Go, Go! Everything is fast-paced, and it can be hard to settle down at ...
