Choosing a Bed to match Style & Needs

If you want a good night's sleep, you need a good bed. The quality of your life depends on good sleep, so a bed is clearly an important investment. There are a few simple principles to getting the desired result.

First decide on the size of bed you would like. Will the bed be the centrepiece of a bedroom, or stand with one end against a wall? You should be able to walk comfortably around the bottom end and two sides when it is in position. Make sure that there is at least four inches of extra leg space for the tallest person who will sleep in the bed. There is nothing worse than having your feet hang out the end of the bed.

It's always a good idea to buy the largest bed your budget and bedroom can stand, especially if two of you will sleep in it regularly. But keep in mind that the bed must be of a shape that can fit inside an entrance to your home and can be carried upstairs, if necessary. If you are putting the bed into a small box bedroom always ensure there is enough room to assemble the bed & put in place before you buy.

There are three broad types of beds for permanent use that are suitable for adults: divan beds, bedsteads and storage beds. The single most important element of the bed is the mattress. Modern quality are designed to fit all base types & can give suitable support regardless of the base type. To prevent movement during the night, it is bed if the mattress fits snugly on the bed base.

Choose the most comfortable mattress by researching the types available. If you are asthmatic, choose a well protected mattress such as a Hypo Allergenic one, as even the best quality beds collect mites. If you are one of the millions of people who always get hot in bed, do not opt for a foam mattress unless it comes with a stay cool or similar type mattress cover. If possible it is also worth sticking to cotton bedding to reduce both static & heat. Contrary to popular belief a hard mattress is not always the best thing for a bad back, so always try and get a supportive mattress rather than just hard or Orthopaedic as choosing the wrong mattress could cause the back problem to worsen.

The most popular bed style is still the divan bed. The base may have extra springing to support the mattress above often called a sprung edge or sprung base. This does not make the bed better or worse it simply provides a different feel to the sleeping surface. The most common divan base type is the solid top or platform top as it is known in the trade. One of the advantages of a divan bed is its price and ease of movement. The base may be dismantled into two halves, making for easier delivery into an upstairs bedroom. Divans usually have options to have storage in the base, which can be as drawers or sliding door base or as now available the ottoman storage base. This is when the top of the base lifts up so you can use the full under bed to store things. The divan can be finished off with a new headboard to match the decor of your room.

Bedsteads or bed frames as many people know them come in wood, metal, leather, fabric or a combination of them all. They can be very decorative, from sleek modern designs to ornate carved four posters with curtains. They are usually more expensive than divan beds as the frame is usually sold separate from the mattress. The base of the bed will vary from bed to bed so its worth knowing the feel of the bed on the base you choose. The most common base is sprung wooden slats, which give a very similar feel to that of the divan bed. It's important to choose the mattress that fits perfectly in the bed frame. The only real disadvantage with bedsteads is that they have no hidden storage options, but you do have the option of storing goods under the frame itself.

We hope you found this article useful & will help you the next time you buy a new bed.
