Our Bedroom The Victorian House

Better Sleep (and a Giveaway!)

This post is sponsored by Sleep Number®.


I’m a more patient mom with enough sleep. A more creative designer, a better partner, a better everything. For me, getting enough rest means not pushing myself to stay up and do one more thing because if I can just get myself into bed at a reasonable time, I can usually fall asleep pretty easily. If you’re someone that has a harder time of it though (like my better half), Sleep Number has some great tips for better sleep.

Sleep Number Mattress

We’re loving our new mattress, and I’m pretty into checking the SleepIQ feedback that the bed provides. I knew from talking to Brandon that he doesn’t sleep as soundly as I do, but look at the difference in our data. And this is a big improvement for him! He used to get even less rest before.

Sleep Number SleepIQ data

Those numbers are from a few weeks ago, and it’s cool to see in the app how they’ve improved and changed over time. Brandon’s paying attention to his patterns and implementing some helpful sleep solutions, using that information to find better sleep.

I was thinking about it and I realized that we’re opposites with other furniture too. I love our teal couch in the living room because it’s deep and the cushions are so soft. He prefers much more firm seating, like our beige armchairs or the black and white sofa in the library. Having a mattress that adjusts on each side has been really great for us! I keep my side at 40 and he’s most comfortable at 65 — a big difference. It’s a fantastic bed for couples, and they can tailor the right solution for you in store.

    My bed is 16 years old. I’d say it’s time for a new one!

    My closest sleep number store is right here in Tallahassee, FL! My husband and I have very different sleep preferences. He likes the room cool; I like it warm. I like thick, fluffy blankets; he likes nothing more than a thin sheet. He likes a firm mattress; I like a softer. A Sleep Number mattress would go a long way in helping us find compromise in our sleeping arrangements!

    There’s a store less than 5 miles from my house in Austin. My biggest problem is that I wake up hot and sweaty every night because my current mattress retains heat like whoa.

    Looks like there are 3 locations in Orlando area less than 10 miles from me! My sister & her husband keep offering to let us try their bed – they love it. We need a new bed and have been considering a Sleep Number bed since we’re not sure the compromise we made last time really worked for us – he likes it soft and I like it firm. Thanks for the opportunity!

    There’s a store not far from me but I’ve never gone to try it out. I’ve got an old mattress and I live alone so I’ve never considered sleep number before. That app though is really a nice feature and I trust it more than a phone that sits on the mattress. Plus, I like that what feels comfy today may not tomorrow, so the mattress adjusts for that.

    Would love to see a check in after a few months to see how you two still love the mattress and if Brandon has improved more!

    my closest store is in greenville, nc. not sure if it’s a side effect of getting older (having just turned 40) or having kids, but i feel like my sleep quality has progressively gone down hill. the 14 year old mattress i have surely is not helping.

    My closest store currently is the Brooklyn-Boerum Hill location, but I’m moving at the end of the month and my new apartment is near the Buckhead – Lenox Rd (Atlanta) location. My husband has back problems and I have weird shoulder problems, so a Sleep Number bed would be great!

    Our closest store is at Mall St. Matthews. We need a new mattress because ours currently has two human-sized wells in it. I was unimpressed with how a traditional mattress has held up over the years, so perhaps a sleep number bed would be a good change.

    My husband and I can’t agree on an appropriate mattress firmness, our next mattress will likely need to a Sleep Number. He likes mattresses so soft that I feel like I’m falling into a sink hole and he feels like my firmer preference is rock-hard.

    My boyfriend and I just bought a house. I had been noticing that our bed wasn’t as comfortable as it used to be, but especially after the move and pushing and pulling up the stairs I just haven’t been sleeping as well. I started thinking about it and realized that the mattress is 11 years old now, so probably about ready for an upgrade!

    Portland Mine is the closet to me which is perfect because I go right by this store when I visit my daughter at college. My bed now does not give me any type of support anymore. The kids used it too much as a trampoline when they were younger. Yes, I also I had fun with the kids jumping on my bed but now I have to pay the consequences for having all of that fun. My dog also thinks my mattress doesn’t do the trick anymore.

    I’m surprised to see a store at the Galleria at South Bay! We slept on a Sleep Number bed several years ago at a resort in San Diego, and it was one of the best nights’ sleep ever. I like firm and my husband likes soft, so someone always has to compromise – it’s usually him since I have back & hip issues!

    Brand new store in Dedham, only 4 miles away from us! We’ve already been there checking out the beds, because we have the issue where my husband prefers a much softer mattress and I prefer more firm. I’d also be SUPER interested in analyzing all the sleep data to figure out just how much rest we’re actually getting :)

    My closest store is the West Omaha store, which is about 30 miles away.

    Sleep Number has been on my radar for a while – my husband needs a firmer mattress because of lingering back issues from his time in the military. I, on the other hand, need a softer mattress, because each time I sleep on anything too firm I wake up with backaches and my neck out is out of alignment. I feel like a Sleep Number might finally be the trick to getting us both what we need.
