According to CDC data, one out of every three Americans says they don’t get enough sleep. Our lack of sleep is an epidemic, and there are many contributing factors. Stress, lifestyle, and mobile devices are all keeping us from the good night’s sleep we need to function.

One aspect of your life that shouldn’t contribute to your sleeplessness is where you sleep. Are you in the market for new bedroom furniture? Do you know how to choose a bed that’s right for your body and your space?

Read on to learn all about how to find the perfect bed for your space and your body.

Bed and Mattresses Work Together

Choosing a bed is about finding something that works with your space. If you’re in the market for a new bed, also consider if it’s time to buy a new mattress.

The average lifespan of a traditional spring mattress is eight years. An old mattress can interrupt sleep and cause body aches and pains. Not purchasing a new mattress when needed can harm your health and quality of life. 

The Right Theme

Your bed is the centerpiece of your bedroom. Though a bare-bones design might work for a college student or young bachelor, the right bed for you functions within the design aesthetic of your bedroom.

You have two options when choosing a bed. You can choose a bed as the catalyst for a new bedroom theme, or you can find a bed that fits an already designed room.

Height is Crucial

The height you choose depends on your mobility and design aesthetic. A too high bed might be a challenge for those with hip, leg, or back issues. A too-low bed presents a cleaning challenge.

Before you buy anything, make sure to take measurements, and don’t forget to include your mattress height when taking them.

Think of the Room

Are you outfitting your luxurious main bedroom? Are you shopping for a guest or spare room, or do you live in a city apartment with limited space?

There are types of beds for all of these scenarios. A canopy bed or sleigh bed might be perfect for your main bedroom, while a guest room bed complete with storage might be what you need for a guest room or small apartment.

Space is a premium for many so making sure that you have enough room for the bed you choose is important.

How to Choose a Bed

Quality sleep is so vital to your health. A quality bed that works with your space is a necessity for every adult. You’re not a college kid; you deserve a well-crafted bed.

How to choose a bed? There are so many styles and types of beds, but the one that’s right for you is the one that fits.
