How to choose the perfect bed

How to choose the perfect bed

Did you know that the average person spends over a third of their life in bed? Whether that’s sleeping, resting or watching TV, we spend more time in bed than we potentially realise.

With this in mind, it is more important than ever to pick your bed carefully and assess all of the issues and challenges you may face. We know how important it is to get a good night’s sleep and your mattress really is key to this.

Here some of our top tips below to ensure you know what to look out for when choosing your next bed or mattress.

Look at the different types of bed

With so many bed options to choose from, it is important to choose a bed that is in line with your needs and the space you have to work with. From divan and ottoman beds with various storage solutions and to leather and metal bed frames, the bed you pick is totally down to the style that suites your home.

A divan bed is an idea solution if your bedroom is short on accessible storage space. With a variation of draws and layouts, a divan bed can work for even the most awkward of bedroom shapes and layouts. An ottoman bed is also a great space saving solution as they have a large under bed storage area which is perfect for storing items such as clothing and bedding. The mattress pulls over the storage space so the items inside aren’t visible in your bedroom.

Get your mattress right

A great night’s sleeps all come down to your mattress. As the mattress is the part you actually sleep on then this should be your main focus when purchasing a new bed. As with beds themselves, there are a huge range of mattress available to suit all tastes and requirements.

It’s important to assess your natural sleeping position, whether or not you have any aches and pains than need to be supported and the level of support you prefer.

A back sleeper requires more support than a side sleeper, a firm or medium firm mattress is recommended to provide essential support to maintain the natural alignment of the spine if you are a front sleeper and a side sleeper requires something that molds closer to your body.

Think about the space

While this may not seem to be the most important factor when you’re picking a new bed, it is important to consider the size of your bedroom before you purchase a new bed or mattress. A super king may be the bed of dreams, but if you’re only just fitting a double in your bedroom now there’s not going to be much room left.

To relax properly in your bedroom you also need a reasonable amount of space around your bed without feeling cramped and overcrowded.
