Before Buying a New Bed

Buying new bedroom furniture, beds in particular, require a little more thought than simply stretching out on your potential new bed in the showroom or choosing one based solely on its looks.


We spend a good portion of our time asleep. So it’s no big news that choosing an appropriate and well-built bed is crucial for your well-being. Buying new bedroom furniture, beds in particular, require a little more thought than simply stretching out on your potential new bed in the showroom or choosing one based solely on its looks.

Buying a new bed is an investment, and if you choose wisely, one that should last many years. Don’t rush into buying a new bed; rather, take your time to investigate and purchase the best fit for you. We’ve put together a few tips that will help you choose a new bed that’s right for you:

1. Make up your Mind on the Best Bed Size.

Beds come in all kinds of sizes, even custom-made odd-sizes. But keep in mind that an odd-sized bed will require an odd-sized mattress and bedding; which can be very hard to come by. Take your initial cues from the size of your bedroom. If you have a massive master suite, you can go for a king sized bed, but if your sleeping quarters are somewhat cramped, opt for a smaller sized bed.

Next to your bedroom size is the number of persons who will be sleeping in the bed. If it is just for a solo sleeper, you may be fine with a twin bed or double bed. If you’re going to be sharing your bed, then opt for the biggest bed possible.

2. Set your Best Bed Budget.

New mattresses, bedding and a new bed can run up the bills quickly, so make sure that you set a budget before you enter the purchasing process. Do buy the best bed that your budget can afford, and if it means skimping a bit on bedding or other bedroom furniture, it is well worth it. A good bed will add to your health and will continue to be in-use for many years, so purchasing a quality bed will pay off in the long run.

3. Inspect your Bed’s Construction.

You won’t enjoy making repairs on your newly purchased bed, so take the time to assess the bed’s construction before you buy it. If it is made poorly or from cheap materials, you may want to move on to something of better quality. Beds made from solid wood are often better built and will stand up to the rigorous task of sleep! Children’s beds in particular should be sturdy enough to handle their often boisterous use.
