HOW TO BUY A BED
BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF SLEEP
Before considering buying a bed, our sleep experts created a few steps to follow in order to narrow down what bed is the best fit based on your needs as well as the type of sleeper you are.
Follow these easy steps when choosing your next bed?
As with everything else you buy, you first need to do proper research on the product you are about to purchase. Find out if the mattress needs turning, how it is kept clean, what is the life cycle of the mattress, and more.
Buy your mattress from a trusted brand.
Are you looking for a Spring, Foam or Memory Foam mattress? Find out the differences between these type of mattresses and which one are best suited. The higher the quality of the mattress the longer its life-span the more expensive it will be.
Disturbances from our partners are a common cause of sleeplessness. Rather buy a bigger bed, like a King size bed to make sure that the 70 times we toss and turn a night will not disturb your partner. Also, make sure that your new bed is long enough. Before you go out to purchase your new bed, make sure that you have the measurements of your bedroom and all access points to it.
The most commonly purchased bed sizes are:
- Double (137 cm),
- Queen (152 cm) and
- King (183 cm) size beds.
Take a good day out of your busy schedule and test the bed you are looking for properly. Rest in your preferred sleeping position (whether its on your back or side) for as long as you feel you need to assess the bed’s comfort. Do not shop for beds when you are feeling tired, as all the mattresses will feel great.
If you suffer from back pain, firm beds can alleviate your back pain, but an overly firm bed may aggravate your condition. Rather consult your local doctor or chiropractor to find out what mattress would be best for your back pain.
