Buying a new bed can be a difficult decision, because there are lots of things to consider. Here are our top five tips for buying a new bed:
The bigger the better – Larger beds are more comfortable. Not only do you have more space to stretch out, you are less likely to be disturbed if you’re sharing with a partner.
You get what you pay for – We spend a third our lives in bed, which makes buying a bed one of the most important purchase you’ll make. So spend as much as you can afford to.
Look to see if it’s NBF approved – It’s important you look for the National Bed Federation’s (NBF) ‘big tick’ mark of approval to be sure you’re buying a safe, clean and honest product from a reputable manufacturer.
Buy a base and mattress that work for each other – You don’t want to buy a new bed base if you’re mattress doesn’t work with it. So consider the type of mattress and well as the base when making a purchase.
Thinking ahead – It’s good to think ahead, you might have a static bed now and not need an adjustable bed but your needs or your partners needs might change so that an adjustable bed would be more suitable.
