Choosing a Bed
What to Consider

People often keep their beds well beyond ten years and then have to replace them for all the wrong reasons such as back pain, worn cover, tired fillings, exposed springs and lack of support. A bed is rarely changed because it has reached the end of its ten year life span.

CHOOSING AND BUYING A BED IS
AN INTENSELY PERSONAL CHOICE

Finding the right combination of both the bed and mattress will give the ultimate degree of support to suit your needs. Many people think that buying a new mattress will give them a brand new bed. However, it's very important to establish the condition and type of the customer's existing base. If it is old - the new mattress will follow its worn contours thus bringing no improvement. Similarly - different types of bases may make the mattress feel different from the shop floor model.

SO HERE ARE OUR RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Purchase a matching set and try a range of beds for comparison!
  • The right bed is one that is comfortable and supportive
  • Different people find different beds comfortable so it is important to try a range of beds for comparison
  • If the bed is for two people, it is also important for both to try the beds


THINGS TO AVOID WHEN CHOOSING YOUR BED

Prodding with your hand is no use, especially pocketed sprung mattresses that are designed to depress with your full body weight. Sitting on the edge of the bed will also give a false impression, particularly if the divan has a sprung edge. The only proper way to test a bed is to lie on it - preferably both on your back and side for an extended period of time.

THE CORRECT WAY TO CHOOSE YOUR BED

Test how well the bed supports your spine lie on your back and try to slide your hand into the small of your back:

TOO SOFT
You will find it hard to slide your hand into the small of your back

TOO FIRM
You will find it easy to slide your hand into the small of your back

CORRECT SUPPORT
A snug fit means the support offered by the mattress is ideal
