Buying a New Bed

TOP TIPS FOR BUYING A BED

If you live for 75 years you will be asleep for around 25 of those years that, 9,125 days.

Not quite as long as sleeping beauty.

You want the best possible night’s sleep that you can afford.     So here are some tips to help make the right decision for you.

Do your research. Check out the websites of our British bed manufacturers, there’s a wealth of information on there. Visit an independent bed retailer, they will also be able to advise you. Always try the beds and don’t buy online!

Types of Base                                                

DIVAN BASE
SLATTED BASE


Types of Mattress

LATEX FOAM
MEMORY FOAM
POCKET SPRUNG MATTRESS
OPEN SPRUNG MATTRESS

SO WHAT GOES WITH WHAT?

On a divan base you can use sprung mattress or memory foam mattress.

On a slatted base you can use a sprung mattress or a latex foam mattress.  You can use memory foam on a slatted base but make sure it is compatible.

Latex foam needs to be well ventilated and It is not recommended to use an electric blanket with memory foam or latex foam,

SO WHAT DO WE SUGGEST?

  • Buy the best you can afford. 
  • Beds are functional.  I would go for a divan base  if you like the look of a  frame bed then choose a divan base over a slatted base if you can.
  • If you are choosing a frame bed, then choose wood or metal, they are harder wearing and easier to repair.
  • My choice of mattress would be a pocket sprung turned mattress.
  • Buy toppers separately.
  • Always follow the manufacturers guidelines and turn the mattress as recommended.
