Your New Bed: How to Get it Right

Wednesday, June 03, 2015

We all spend roughly a third of our lifetimes asleep, that means we spend a lot of time in bed. So, if you haven’t upgraded your bed for a while, here’s what you need to think about before buying your new one.

● Size
There’s a lot to take into consideration when choosing which size bed is right for you. First of all, you need to think about the comfort that the bed will offer you. You don’t want to feel cramped in the bed. Your size and height, as well as that of your partner, should be taken into consideration as it will affect the amount of space you’ll need.

The size of your room is important too though. Measure your bedroom carefully and think about how much floor space you’re prepared to sacrifice. Your main choices for a double bed, from smallest to largest, are Double, Queen, King and Super King size.

●● Headboard
A lot of ordinary bedsteads will have a built-in headboard so you might not have to worry about getting a separate one. If you want the easy option, you should definitely seek out a bed that comes with a headboard. It takes a little of the hard work out of the task.

There are lots of benefits of buying a divan or any other kind of be without a headboard though. For a start, it allows you to personalise the bed, choosing the headboard you want give you more creative control over how the bed looks. Most of them just slot in place too, so you should be able to do it by yourself.

●●● Mattress
The most important part of any bed is the mattress; that’s why it’s so important to get the one that’s right for you. How the bed feels when you lie on it and how comfortable you are at night is predominantly decided by your mattress. There are lots of different types of mattress to choose from.

The most conventional kind is the pocket sprung mattress, most of us have slept on one of these before, so you’ll know what you’re getting. But memory foam mattresses are now becoming very popular for variance reasons. They mould to the shape of your body giving you the maximum amount of support possible.

●●●● Sheets and Covers
The bed sheets and covers you choose for your bed should be functional, but they mainly matter because they dictate how the bed looks. You should pick out designs that fit in with the overall theme of your bedroom, you don’t want to have a bed that looks at odds with the rest of the room’s design.

Besides the design, you also need to think about what material you want. Cotton sheets are known for their comfort and softness, especially if you choose Egyptian cotton. Poly-blend sheets are another option, These don’t wrinkle very easily and are a lot easier to maintain. You might want to choose different sheets for different seasons too, you don’t want to be too hot in summer or too cold in winter.

Getting your bed right is vital, you can only get a great night’s sleep if you have a great bed to sleep on!
