A bed is a very personal thing. A new bed with the right mattress can do wonders for your sleeping habits! You spend a third of your life in bed, so it’s vital that you make the right choice. Here’s some general information that will help you choosing the best bed for you.
Tips for how to choose bed
Take some time out and lie down.A good way to check if the bed you are lying on is too soft, too hard, or just right is to lie on your back, placing your hand in the small of your back and then trying to move it about. If it moves too easily, the bed may be too hard for you; if it’s a struggle to move your hand, then the bed is too soft. If you can move your hand with just a little resistance, the bed may be just right for you.
Try the bed in all of the sleeping positions you tend to use, not only on your back, and try a selection of beds for comparison.
If you share a bed, take your partner with you. Remember, it’s important a new bed suits both of you.
There are many different types of beds including poster beds, beds with under bed storage, canopy beds, and so many other types. Under bed storage is popular if you are limited in storage space but if you are going to put the bed up against the wall and won’t be able access the storage then there’s no point in buying a bed with drawers.
There are also many different types of mattresses. Choosing the right bed and the right mattress for you means you’ll get a much better nights sleep. The comforter, bedspread, quilt, or duvet cover you choose for your bed will likely become the focal point of your bedroom decor. Good quality bedspreads and comforters are made with matelasse, cotton chintz, chenille, or even velvet. These fabrics tend to have a tight weave and thick threads that increase the durability and opulence of the cover.
