Shopping for a new bed
Before shopping online for a new bed, here are some things you need to consider and think about first:
- Type. Think about the style you prefer and what you dislike about your current bed as well as whether you want a softer or firmer feel.
- Price and budget. Always look for value and not the one with the lowest price tag. Of course, there are many cheap beds or cheap bed deals available that are perfectly acceptable. Keep in mind though to look for a bed with a better support, construction and comfort that will last long but will still stay within your budget.
- Size. Does size matter? Yes it does! A larger bed is less likely to disturb your partner, if you have one. An ideal bed should be around 10 to 15cm or 4 to 6in longer than you or the tallest person you’ll be sharing it with.
- Check dimensions. Even if beds have the same name like king size, queen size, etc., they’re still not standardized, especially if the base and mattress are not from the same maker. Common European sized are quite different and several imported bedsteads are based in European sizes.
- Buy mattress and base together. If possible, make sure to try a mattress on a similar kind of base. These two are designed to work together and changing the base will have an effect on the performance and feel of the mattress. If buying online, make sure to ask the customer support of the online shop about this matter.
- Access all areas. If you’re worrying on how you can get the bed upstairs, keep in mind that almost all divans come with split bases, while most bedsteads are typically delivered in pieces for you to assemble. To avoid any delivery problems, tell the retailer about any possible access problems before buying like, tight corners or narrow staircases. Also, check the shop’s terms and conditions.
- After sales service. If you’re having a hard time deciding between a couple or more equally suitable beds, think about the services offered by the retailer such as warranty or guarantee offered, quick delivery, special offers and free disposal of your current bed.
Types of beds
- Divan. This is the simplest and most popular type of bed and there are numerous selections on sale. Basically, it is a base that you can add a headboard and bed mattress that are sometimes part of the bed package.
- Bedsteads. These are slatted frames and are normally made from wood or metal and comprised of legs, headboard and a base. They’re more a decorative option with different finishes, styles and colours to choose from.
- Storage bed. This type offers plenty of storage options underneath it. It’s a great option if you have a limited space but still want to have a little flair than a regular divan bed.
- Sofa and folding beds. These are compact and yet flexible beds that are ideal in guest bedrooms.
- Bunk bed. 2 beds in 1 for siblings sharing a bedroom.
- Cot bed. This is recommended for small kids since it is convertible and can help your little one make the transition from cot to bed.
Types of mattresses
Majority of mattresses in the UK comes with spring interiors, which provide the central support. Changing the thickness of the wire, spring construction, number of coils, quantity and height of every spring will alter the weight, feel, tension and weight distribution properties of every mattress.
A spring mattress can be zoned across its middle providing extra support for people with heavier shoulders and hips. A half and half on the other hand provides different tensions on each side of the bed or round the edge of the mattress to give it an added firmness.
This type if ideal for hot sleeper as they offer a great air circulation and a cooler and direr feeling compared to foam and latex. In addition, it’s also highly durable and provides great value for money as well.
Most foam mattresses are made from different layers of foam densities. Achieving different levels of support and comfort is possible because of their varying depth and density. They are suitable particularly for use with adjustable beds and slatted bases. The main types of foam in use are;
- Memory foam or visco elastic
- Polyurethane foam
This type is for you if you like your mattress to mould to your body’s contours and provide a personalized support. It also absorbs movement, so if you will be sharing a bed with a fidgety sleeper, this is a good buy. In addition, foam mattresses are flexible, soft and resilient that can last long since they can be regularly turned.
