Three tips for better zzzz’s from The Brick Sleep Ambassador, Tessa Virtue.


Invest in a mattress tailored to your sleep style. “ Consider other needs like reading or TV-watching comfort,” says Tessa.


Choose a soothing bed palette. Try a soft grey linen headboard and matching sheet set.


“Don’t forget pillows! They represent 30% of your sleep comfort, so be sure to ask the sleep experts what best suits your needs,” says Tessa.

Choose Your Mattress

Here's what to consider when making a decision


Set a budget

Mattresses run from hundreds to thousands of dollars, so it’s helpful to have a price range in mind before you shop. The average mattress lasts seven to 10 years, so your investment will get plenty of use!


Know your type

Foam, innerspring, pocket coil, plush or firm – there are as many mattress types as there are sleepers! The right support can make the difference between tossing and turning and waking up feeling great.


Try it for comfort

Online shopping is fast and convenient, but it’s not the best way to choose a new mattress. Visit The Brick to lie back and test out your mattress options in our showroom.

What is your Sleep Style?

“When choosing a mattress, choose one that suits your usual sleeping style. Take your time testing it out – there’s no rush,” says Tessa Virtue. Here’s a basic guide to get you started.

Size Matters

Choosing the right size mattress comes down to preference and room space. Measure your bedroom to see if you can spare the square footage for the mattress of your dreams.

Quick tip: Use masking tape to mark off mattress dimensions on your floor. This will give you an idea of how well each size could fit your space.
