Beds don’t last forever – life span is affected by factors such as the quality of the bed, care, amount of use and sleeping each night versus occasional use of spare beds.
The right bed is extremely important to our health and wellbeing because our sleeping environment will affect the quality of our sleep – which in turn has a big effect on how well we feel, both physically and psychologically.
First, you’ll want a bed that’s big enough for you and your partner. But how big is big enough – king size, queen size or normal sized bed? There is only one way to find out: Lie on the prospective bed with arms stretched on your sides. Now that will give you an idea on how much space you require (plus your partner’s).
Of course you need to consider your height, too. The idea is that you need as much space to be comfy as you sleep without falling off or waking your partner up. And, yeah, you need to make sure it fits comfortably in your bedroom, leaving enough space around.
There are hundreds of different types of beds on the market today and there is no specific type for a back problem etc. The best advice is to try out as many different types as you can and find the one you feel most comfortable lying on.
Then comes the bed’s height. You’ll want to get on and off the bed with ease, which in other words means the bed frames should be of right height. Again, it’s best to try getting on and off the bed while you are choosing the right one.
Lastly, carefully consider the brand and the price. Though all cheap beds are not bad but then branded ones have a lot going for them like quality, warranty…the works. They wouldn’t have become well known for nothing. You should really check out the beds from the Bedroom range at Tesco Direct. They stock a great range of products at everyday prices.
Remember, you’re going to spend many hours on your bed during the years, so it’s worth taking a little time and effort in the beginning to make sure you make the right choice.
Happy buying and sweet dreams!
