The bedroom is a place where you spend a third of your life, while rejuvenating your senses and getting rid of the previous day’s tiredness for a fresh day. The kind of mood you’re in on the following day depends on how well you sleep and how well your bed treats you. Moreover, when you are spending hundreds of dollars for a bed, you not only want it to be comfortable, but also want it to last a long time. The market today is flooded with beds of all types and makes, which come with a promise of durability and comfort, making the choice a little more difficult. Here are a few things you should consider while buying a new bed.
• Size of the bed:
You don’t want the bed to be too large or too small for you. The first thing to consider while buying a new bed is the size you want. If buying a double bed, make sure that the when you and your partner lie in it, there should at least be an extra six inches of space on the both sides for extra comfort. Moreover, before finalizing the deal, make sure that the bed you’re purchasing will easily fit inside your bedroom.
• Try the bed:
Don’t go by the good looking wooden carvings on the backrest, after all you won’t be using it for any comfort. Before buying the bed make sure you and your partner try it out by lying down for a few minutes. Also make sure that you try all the sleeping positions you normally are in at night.
• Bed Comfort:
Unlike the common conception that the most expensive product will also be the most comfortable isn’t entirely correct when choosing a bed. Bed comfort depends on the materials used while constructing it and the mattresses put on top of it. A comfortable bed is the bed that offers you the best support. Since all of us have different body types and we all sleep in different postures, the best bed for you will be the bed that will offer you the best possible support. A very soft bed will make you slouch, leading to problems with your back and a very hard bed won’t be comfortable at all. Moreover, if you suffer from back problems, do consult your doctor as to what is best for you.
• Bed Floor:
Another thing to check before you finalize the deal is the height at which the bed’s floor is. Ideally, your bed should be low floored, which will give you an easy sit and get up posture. However, there should still be enough space under it so that you can clean the underside with a vacuum cleaner, without moving the bed.
• Boxed Beds:
Even if they cost a little more than beds with no storage options, boxed beds will help you de-clutter your bedroom. They also give you ample space to store your blankets and quilts, which you’ll only be using during winter months.
• Don’t forget to bargain:
Not all beds come with a price tag and most retailers simply give you an estimated figure of the price of the bed. Before finalizing the deal, make sure that you bargain with the retailer as most retailers are often expecting this. However, if you’re buying a bed from an online retailer, make sure that you surf through the webpage of different retailers to find the one that suits your budget.
