7 expert tips for a better sleep

Get more energy in your life with these 7 expert tips on how to style your bedroom for a better sleep.

Feeling tired?

You've read a million and one articles about how to sleep better, exercise more, go to bed earlier, drink water, stress less, reduce caffeine intake, you’ve heard it all before. But did you know that your sleep environment can affect the quality of your rest?

So let’s start with some basic changes you can make in your own bedroom to help you catch more zzzz’s.

Here are seven expert tips for styling your bedroom for better sleep.

1 Reduce the Clutter

You don't have to jump on the Marie Kondo minimalist bandwagon but clutter can be anxiety-induing. Got piles of paperwork or clothes to put away? If you can't keep stacks out of your room, store them in a closet, chest, or cupboard at night. It will remind you of your to-do list to keep your sleeping space clutter-free to give your mind room to breathe.

2 Soothing Colours

Vibrant colours are fun, but it's best to use soothing, calming tones in the bedroom if you have trouble sleeping. Keep things neutral and calm but if you love bright colours, use them as accents instead of bright feature walls or on large spaces. Cool colours or soft pastels are a great place to start.

3 Layout is Everything

Work with what you have to create a useable layout. Avoid being cramped with a mattress that's too large for your space and make sure to use clever storage solutions if you're working with small square meterage. Feng Shui your pathways to the door or ensuite and ensure that you won't be tripping over anything at night and that you can easily get ready in the mornings.

4 Ambient Sounds

Try a white noise machine at night or use an app from your phone to produce ambient, repetitive sounds that can help you fall asleep much quicker. It creates a calming environment and allows your mind to focus on something while you drift off. Ambient noise can also block out any external noises which could interrupt your night.

5 No Office Zone

Ban any reminders of work. Setting up a home office in your bedroom is a bad idea and if you're stuck for space, get some sort of a room divider like a privacy screen you can put up at night to block the view of your desk. The experts say your bedroom should be used for sleep and sex. Try not to work or exercise in the bedroom.

6 Window Treatments

If you have light coming into your windows from outside or if you're a late riser, investing in blackout shades could help. Glow in the room at night can interrupt your circadian rhythm, which goes for blue light from electronic devices. Cover your phone or TV at night or better yet, ban these devices from the bedroom altogether. No budget for new blinds? Try a sleep mask instead.

7 The Bed Itself

And last but not least make sure you have a comfortable mattress. And invest in really nice bed sheets. We spend 1/3 of our lives asleep and just think about what we spend on vehicles! You'd be surprised how many sleep issues could improve when you sleep on the right mattress.

A sleep environment should feel like your own personal sanctuary. Your ideal bedroom is the place that makes you feel relaxed and at home. Of course, how you style your room is highly personal, but as long as you feel good and calm in your space, you're giving yourself the best chance to have a restful sleep that leaves you feeling fresh and recharged when you wake.

Delivery Timing and Expectations

We are NOT an 'Amazon' type business and we are NOT a bed-in-a-box either. We are a family business based locally in Melbourne and we actually care about the quality of product we sell and the quality of sleep we promise. For this very reason, we don't compromise on time or quality and make every mattress to order ~ tailor made by hand specifically to our customers needs.

Now sometimes this may take a little longer, but rest assured once you receive and sleep on one of our mattresses, you'll soon understand and appreciate why we are super proud of our master tailors and the quality products we make ~ for you! Quality like ours takes time and is well worth the wait.

PSSS. So please don't compare us to other brands promising to ship next day or ones that are made overseas.

Please see below shipping times based on Metro Locations

  • 5-10 working VIC/NSW
  • 10-14 working days SA/QLD
  • 14-21 working days QLD

Regional deliveries may take up to 2-4 weeks, based on your location.

Please contact our friendly sales team for more up-to-date timings.

What is included in your white glove delivery service?

Our white glove delivery service is a premium offering that sets us apart. When you choose this service, you can expect a dedicated two-person team to handle your mattress with care. They will transport it to your desired location, place it directly on your bedframe, and ensure a seamless and hassle-free experience for you. Additionally, we offer the option to remove your old mattress and responsibly dispose of it, saving you the trouble of dealing with its disposal. This comprehensive white glove delivery service prioritizes your comfort and convenience every step of the way.

What happens to my old mattress?

Metro locations: for a fee of $100, we will collect your old mattress and take it to a mattress recycler. Unfortunately we can not offer our mattress collection service in regional locations at this stage.

Do your mattresses come in a box?

No, our products are made using high quality materials which do not allow them to be compressed, rolled and squashed into a box. When this is done, quality is compromised and we don't do that.

How do I choose the mattress that is right for me/us?

We have carefully engineered two feels in each model, these two feels will please most. If you are looking for rock hard or super cloud soft, you are in the wrong place.

Comfy-Medium, our most popular feel is supportive with added comfort. Firm-Support is a little firmer and is comfort with added support.

Feel free to give us a call if you would like to discuss the options with one of our trained staff.

Are Dusk&Dawn mattresses environmentally friendly?

Yes, all Dusk&Dawn mattresses are made using Australian made foams and fabrics. We proudly use GECA (Good Environmental Choice Australia) and Oeko-Tex certified materials ensuring the most environmentally responsible products.

What type of bed frame do you recommend?

Our mattresses are designed for best performance when used in conjunction with our matching classic slimline base as part of a total sleep set. 

Where can I try your mattresses?

Right in the comfort of your own home! You have 100 nights to decide if you are happy with your selection. It certainly beats 20 minutes in a mattress shop.

Can I order over the phone?

Unfortunately not, for your security all orders must go through our website.

Do you have AfterPay?

Yes, we also accept ApplePay, Zip and PayPal too.

How much is delivery?

Our Delivery service is 100% FREE in metro areas, Australia Wide. For regional areas it's $250 flat rate. Certain regional areas may experience some delays in delivery. Please ask us for accurate delivery times.

What areas do you deliver to?

We are currently delivering to most regions of Australia excluding NT & TAS ( for potential deliveries to these areas please email support@duskanddawn.com.au ), including regional areas. Due to current freight delays and ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, regional deliveries may take up to 3-4 weeks. Please ask us for accurate delivery times.

What bed sheets fit the Signature mattress?

Due to the height of the Signature mattress being 38cm high, we advise you purchase 'Super Queen' size fitted sheets for a Queen size mattress as they will fit more comfortably around your mattress. These can be found at most bedding retailers across Australia including Adairs.

Is there a trial period?

We want you to be completely satisfied with your new mattress. For this reason, all Dusk&Dawn mattresses come with a 100 night comfort guarantee. During this time you can test your new mattress out in the comfort of your own home. You must own the mattress for a minimum of 30 nights from the date received, this will give your body the adequate time to adjust. If between, night 31-100 you still are not satisfied with your sleep, then let us know and we will arrange to collect your mattress and adjust the firmness before returning it right back to you FREE of charge. 


Please... Don't pay retail prices?

We are sold purely online. If we were to sell to popular retailers, our prices would be double and they would make huge margins. We want to pass those saving on to you - the customer. We pride ourselves on value for money. Quality Australian made workmanship using only premium materials. You simply won't get this quality of build at these prices at the major retailers. They need to make a big margin to pay for staff, lease or bricks and mortar.

Do we offer a refund?

Yes we do offer a refund. But first:

1. You must go through 1 Comfort change first as per our Comfort Guarantee policy;
2. And then if you are still not happy after a further 30 nights of sleeping on it, we will happily refund your money (Minus the shipping cost of $250).
