How to reduce snoring and get a better night's sleep

Roughly 45 per cent of adults snore. That's a lot of noise pollution. Not only does it mean that you, the snorer, often aren't getting your most restorative sleep, it also means your partner isn't sleeping well either.  

What is snoring?

Effectively, snoring is noisy sleeping that occurs occasionally or every night. When you sleep your throat muscles relax, your tongue falls backwards and your airway narrows causing your throat walls to vibrate. The vibration is known as snoring, and it can be a gentle sound or very loud.  

Factors that contribute to snoring include being overweight, nasal problems, drinking alcohol before bed, allergies, and, you guessed it, your sleeping position.

What are the best sleep positions to alleviate snoring or potentially stop it all together?

The best sleeping position to help with snoring involves raising the head of your bed to open up your airways and reduce pressure on our throat muscles. This prevents blockages in your airways.

But raising your head by stacking pillows high can cause you to wake up in uncomfortable positions with a stiff neck, and may not provide you with the restorative sleep that you need.  

Can Adjustable Beds stop snoring?

We don't think it is really that simple... We can offer all of the tools to help you find a position that could reduce or eliminate snoring but if you find yourself at home sleeping the same way that you always have then the simple answer will be 'no'. But position yourself well- head elevated and on your back and you may find that the answer to that questions is 'YES'!

Adjustable beds are becoming a popular lifestyle choice. Not only are they a luxurious way to sleep, they also have many health benefits not just helping you with snoring but many other amazing things as well.

An adjustable bed allows you to personalise your bed to your needs, meaning that you can raise the head of your bed to reduce the pressure on your throat muscles. All BLA Sleep Systems in Queen size or above come as a dual system, this means that the bed is effectively split into two individual beds, which means that your partner can adjust their side of the bed to their unique needs so that you both get your best night's sleep.

All of our adjustable beds come with a wireless remote and customisable memory functions so that you can save the position that best suits you.

A healthy and luxurious option, offering better quality sleep!

Adjustable beds provide a restful sleep and are known to help with many other health problems such as muscle aches and joint pain, sciatic and back pain, asthma and other breathing problems, as well as fluid build-up in legs and feet. And really that is just the start of the ailments you can find help with by sleeping correctly.

Sleep in pure comfort on our adjustable bed memory foam mattresses, or use our whole body massage function with different speeds and a timer to melt stress from your life and drift off to sleep.

How do you recommend people who suffer from snoring should be sleeping?

The best way to open your airways and help to reduce your snoring is to sleep nice and elevated in the head section of the bed. Positioning is key here!

Wouldn’t sleeping on my back increase my snoring at night?

Absolutely not, by raising your head, your airways become nice and open and your soft palate shouldn't fall to the very back of your throat and vibrate. Although some days you may need to sleep a little higher depending on your stress levels, how tired you are, or other contributing factors.

What is the correct position to sleep with snoring problems?

Head elevated and feet slightly elevated.

I have sleep apnea, is sleeping in an adjustable bed recommended?

Absolutely, there are many medical studies that confirm sleeping in an adjustable bed can assist with sleep apnea symptoms, however, we always recommend using your adjustable bed in conjunction with your CPAP Machine.

How does sleeping in an adjustable bed benefit my partner's sleeping?

If you are not snoring as often or as loud it means both you and your partner are getting better sleep- it's a no-brainer!

Is it ok to sleep with your head and feet elevated?

Yes. Raising your head during sleep prevents collapse of your airway, which reduces the risk of snoring and the problems associated with sleep apnea. If positioned properly, sleeping with your head and feet elevated can also relieve pain.

What if my partner and I need different sleeping positions?

Easy. We’re all different sizes, experience different ailments and have different sleeping needs. Better Living Australia’s adjustable beds are designed to let you and your partner personalise the position of your respective bed sides to enhance your own maximum comfort. Each side of your adjustable bed comes with a remote that includes memory preset buttons so that you can achieve your favourite sleeping position in seconds.

Customer Reviews

Why did I wait so long?

The beds are very comfortable and easy to use, very relaxing to go to sleep with the aid of massage feature. I suffer from osteo arthritis in both shoulders and lower back pain, I am able to sleep on my back now because I can ease the pain in my back by raising the head and foot of the bed.

So happy we made the purchase

We were delighted to come across a Better Living bed display at a local show where we were told that the bed would fit inside our existing frame. We made the decision there and then to purchase the bed. The delivery was so prompt we hardly had time to empty and remove the bladder of our waterbed.

Faysie ~ March 2022


The additional body support provided by being able to put our feet up has been SO relaxing and the massage helps us relax and go to sleep quickly after a hard day of farm chores. An added bonus is that both my husband and I can sleep with different adjustments in the same bed

Ruth ~ March 2022

Beyond expectations

I came home after major spinal surgery in the beginning of August 2022. My bed I had at the time was so hard it was impossible for me to sleep on it. The first night out of hospital I had to sleep on the couch with pillows to support me. The next day I called better living - they were amazing. They not only helped me choose my options, they had the bed delivered and installed the same day. I know they worked after hours to help me, and I cannot tell them enough how grateful I am for the excellent service and help they gave me.

Tait ~ September 2022

I should have done this sooner

I am so happy with my new bed! It does exactly what I wanted. The massage feature and being able to adjust the head and feet have helped with my aches and pains from being on my feet all day. I can’t thank Tarina enough. She listened to me and gave me great advice. The bed being endorsed by the TGA meant a lot to me.

Del ~ September 2022

Great service

I'm not one for spending money really (my wife says I'm a tightwad), but six years ago when I first lay on the Better Living Bed, I knew I had to buy one. Well, I can honestly say that I have never regretted once buying our bed. It's just so comfy and inviting that go to bed early now. Thanks, Better Living Beds.

Stephen ~ August 2022

Great investment!

So glad we bought this bed. It's Super comfy and we love all the features. Hubby sleeps much better now as he can elevate his head instead of stacking his pillows which has helped with his snoring so I can also get a better sleep now.

Far North Queensland ~ July 2022


Best bed we have had!

Have had the bed for 4 months now and are sleeping better than ever. The individually adjustable sides have made it easy for us to setup to what suits ourselves and the massage function certanly helps with a better nights sleep. It has been so good we bought one for our caravan.
