How to choose the perfect bed - A guide
Who doesn’t love their bed? The hours we spend there are a sanctuary of comfort and relaxation but when you start to notice you’re leaving a human shaped imprint on your mattress every morning, or if one of the leg supports looks a bit wobbly, it’s time to look for a new one.
Follow our expert’s simple advice on how to find the ideal bed and mattress for you and your bedroom.
Take the mattress for a test drive
Before you buy any bed or mattress, it’s so important to try it out before you commit. Unfortunately, we don’t mean hunkering down for a quick nap whilst you’re still in the store but do lie down in your regular sleeping positions to make sure it is comfortable and supports you in the right places. At Carpet Barn, one of the South’s leading suppliers of beds and mattresses, we encourage you to pop into your local store and try out one of our many mattresses for yourself!
Measure your bedroom
To avoid buying a bedstead that’s so big you can’t actually walk around it, make sure you measure the size of your bedroom before going bed shopping. It’s also a good idea to keep a tape measure on you at all times, just in case you need to whip it out in store to check those all-important dimensions of your chosen bed.
Consider other types of bed
There’s a whole world of different size and styles of bed out there so why limit yourself to a standard double? Give you and your partner all the room you need by investing in a spacious king size bed or, to really please the kids, consider buying fun bunk beds. If you don’t have a lot of space then a day bed offers fantastic flexibility as it can be a practical sofa by day, yet transforms into two singles or a large double at night.
Make the extra investment
There are few things that are more essential for your good health than getting a good night’s sleep, which is why it is important to invest in a decent bed and mattress. While it can be daunting to spend a lot of money on a bed, if it is the right one for you then it’s definitely worth it. After all, a quality bed will last for years and you shouldn’t have to change your mattress for nearly a decade!
Pick a headboard to match your style
Make your bedroom the sanctuary you deserve by choosing a statement headboard that complements your room perfectly. At Carpet Barn, you may be surprised to discover the vast selection of headboards we have available but we’re confident you’ll be able to find the perfect one that suits your impeccable taste and style exactly.
