Makin Mattresses: invest in your rest

Canberrans have never spent more time at home, which is why now is as good a time as any to invest in your rest. Changing your mattress is recommended every eight to 10 years, so if you’re in the market for better sleep – Makin Mattresses is your one-stop shop.

As always, the double sided, two-piece Bellissimo mattress is the hero product of the company. With a five-year comfort promise, you can be sure to know it will fit all your sleep needs, even if those change and you want to come back and swap it for a soft, medium or firm alternative.   

If you’re looking to invest in a new mattress but don’t know where to start, Makin Mattresses has some tips for you:

  • Look for a product that is double-sided and made in Australia. Australia has a reputation for making good quality mattresses and being Australian-made will mean a shorter wait time for delivery.
  • Be careful of discounting. Mattresses are usually marked up so they can be marked down to look like a good deal.
  • Buy direct from the manufacturer instead of a reseller. That way you cut out costs such as franchise fees and mark-ups.

Head into Makin Mattresses Canberra to find their factory direct prices every day.

  • Open 7 days
  • Corner Wollongong and Gladstone streets, Fyshwick

Chris Nowaczyk and his highly skilled team at The Works have over 15 years’ experience in kitchen installations and renovations.

With all their fit-out components produced locally in Queanbeyan, The Works can take a project from the design stage right through to completion and ensure work of the highest quality.

Chris said they design kitchens with workflow in mind to create a highly user-friendly environment that’s a delight to cook in.

“It’s’ more about workflow, how you’re going to feel and work in kitchen,” Chris said.

“Some of the team have a European background in kitchens, others here in Australia. We all have different points of view and are full of ideas.”
