There are lots of important objects in your house; sofas, TVs and fridges are all pivotal in our day to day lives. Without them, we simply wouldn;t be able to function properly. However, I reckon the most important out of all these objects are our beds. We spend so much time in our bedrooms and our beds are the whole reason as to why that is. There’s nothing better than having successful nights sleep and having a good bed goes a long way to helping us with that. That’s why, especially today when so much scientific knowledge is highlighting the importance of a comfortable bed, it’s vital that we make sure we’re buying the most comfortable beds possible. There’s a bit more thought that goes into this than you might think, but what actually is it? Here’s my guide to getting a new bed this year.
The first thing you need to think about is the mattress you’re going to buy. Mattresses are criminally underrated when it comes to a good night sleep as they literally provide the foundation for it, even if we can’t always see them. Without a good mattress, you won’t get all the potential comfort. Now, there are a few different kinds of mattresses that you could consider. For example, you could get a foam mattress. These are really popular and if you buy a good one, it could provide you with the ultimate comfort. Spring mattresses are another common choice for bed shoppers and could be just as good for you. You need to do some research into what you’d prefer, so look at more foam vs spring mattresses debates here.
Next, you need to have a good think about your choice of duvet and pillows. These are equally as important if you’re looking for a good night sleep- there’s nothing better than collapsing into your bed after a long hard day at work and being able to snuggle up into a luxurious duvet with your head resting on the most comfortable pillows. That’s why you need to make sure you’re not just buying the first sets you come across and that you’re spending time over this decision. If you chose poorly, you could be stuck with them for a while. Try to go into some stores to test out some duvet sets- some places allow you to do this.
You also need to have a think about the size of your bed. This is particularly the case if you’re buying an entirely new bed and aren’t just replacing a mattress or duvet, as in cases like this you should know the sizes you’re looking for. When buying a new entire bed, think about who you’re buying for. Do you live alone, or do you share a bed with someone every night? If it’s the latter, then at least a queen size bed is probably wise. Think about the bedroom size as well; if you buy a bed that’s too big, there won’t be any room left to wander around and store other things.
