Things You Should Know Before You Buy a Bed

2 Dec, 2015


An average person spends one-third of his/her life or 8 hours every day sleeping. We all need to sleep in order to recharge our bodies and to remain healthy. Beds help you get a better sleep and provide for relaxation and comfort that enhance your quality of sleep.

The beds are the bedroom furniture pieces that are not purchased often. You can know some aspects related to bed shopping in order to make your bed purchase rewarding and easy. The bed-buying guide below will help you to enjoy your night sleep, mid-day naps, needle points and book reading in a better way. 


Things you must know before you purchase the bed
You must consider your bedroom size and its dimensions before you purchase the right bed for it. You should also know the size of bed beforehand and the size of the mattress you will require after you purchase the bed. The return process may be complicated or may require time. Hence, it is important that you purchase your bed with adequate knowledge beforehand and have the perfect fit.

DIY (Do It Yourself) Measurements
You need to measure the room area and select the size of bed that can be comfortably placed in the room. Leave adequate space for movement and for placing at least a side-table (you will require it). If you have space, then you can also go for the footboard and headboard. By measuring the space, you will be able to know beforehand whether you can place the nightstand, mirror, bench, wardrobe, chest of drawer and other furniture that can be placed in the room.

Companies and retailers want you to know your bed size before reaching them. Most of the business they get is through referrals and word-of-mouth. You will be more satisfied with a precise purchase and will bring more consumers to the company. So do not feel shy and express your requirements freely when you do the bed purchase.

You are almost ready
After covering the above-given aspects, you are now almost ready for the bed purchase. I say almost as you still need to know whether you need the foundation or box spring and the mattress. If you are purchasing a daybed or futon, you do not require a foundation. Else, you do. The mattress should be of the same size of the bed. Twin mattresses match with twin beds and full bed mattresses with full beds. You can also use your earlier mattresses if they are in fine shape. The technology related mattress manufacturing has vastly improved, and you may like to search for the more comfortable options.

Bed Frames
Bed frames are offered to you in different sizes and include the bed rails, double-end engineered frames and the slat system. These are designed according to the beds that you order. Below is a chart that can help you to match your bed frame size with the size of the mattress.
