simple living // a comfortable bedroom for Rufus…

Rufus is 10 this year! Can you believe it?!  I can’t.  Over the past few months he has grown and changed, wanting to spend more time in his bedroom reading or drawing, enjoying his own private space.

I asked him, what he would like to have to make his room more comfortable, thinking he would say a book shelf, or a new duvet cover. But his answer ranged from a TV, a fridge!?, a PS4 and a new mattress as, in his words, his present one is ‘lumpy’.

Well, I can do a mattress kiddo, but TV and fridge will have to wait until you leave home!

His current ‘lumpy’ mattress is a cheap sprung mattress that came with the bunk beds we bought on-line a few years ago.  I totally get why he says his mattress is uncomfortable.  It is. After many sleepless nights of bed hopping when the boys are poorly, I know first hand that his mattress is lumpy.

Our own mattress is one of those amazing memory foam ones, and in comparison it is like sleeping on a cloud.  So with this in mind, I looked around for an alternative for both boys, and came across Emma Mattress. Made in the UK, these brilliant mattresses arrived rolled in a cardboard tube, easy to post and easy to maneuver up the stairs to the bedroom too.   With a quick snip of the plastic it was unwrapped and unfurled within seconds to reveal a super comfy bed fit for a king.

Emma Mattress offer both free delivery and free returns, with a 100 night trial period, they are that confident that their mattresses will not need returning, and you will be sleeping better in no time.

He is delighted with his new mattress, and spends his time playing in his room, and even ‘styling’ his space. Enjoying bringing up the sheepskin and a few cushions to make his room even more comfortable.  I feel there is another blog post coming on – sharing how Rufus would actually shop and style is room.  Without a fridge and TV of course!
