The best bed for you depends on what you want and need from the place where you go to relax at the end of a long, busy day. Taking into consideration things like support, size and the space you have in your bedroom can all make a difference to your choice, so think about these things when buying that new bed. There’s not much point putting an antique Louis the Fourteenth full size four-poster in your studio flat. Sure, you may feel like royalty when you lay your head down, but how are you going to work around it when you’re not asleep? Do you really want to climb over it?
A sofa bed would suit your needs much better and there are some great quality ones available that will be just as comfortable, and have the added bonus of being easy to pack away and use as a sitting area during the day. If you have space to spare, the wide range of king and queen sized beds will ensure you have a comfortable night whether you like to sleep curled like a cat or spread out like a starfish.
If that’s not your style, then it’s not a problem; single beds are a great way to save space if you have a smaller room, but don’t forget the useful under bed storage drawers that divan styles offer. A good way to vary this is to get a frame that appeals to you – choose from wooden, metal, leather and all sorts of other materials – and invest in some separate storage drawers that will accomplish the same space saving storage without the solid base.
If you need a little more support, a pocket sprung mattress will suit your needs well as it has firm support and is designed to spread your weight evenly. Say goodbye to those sore spots in the morning. Add a memory foam topper for an added touch of luxury.
