Most of us spend one-third of our lives sleeping, hence it makes sense to invest in a good, comfortable bed. However, it can be overwhelming trying to navigate the mattress market, especially for those who are shopping for their first bed. As a leading mattress store in Alpharetta, we are here to help you find the bed of your dreams. That’s why we have put together a handy guide that can make the buying process easier for you.
Whether you’re setting up a bedroom from scratch or planning a bedroom makeover, before buying a new bed, there are four things that you need to pay attention to, including budget, mattress, bed frame, and linens.
Mattress, headboard, sheets, and pillowcases, these things quickly add up. Luckily, there’s always a bed for every budget as prices in the world of mattresses can vary a lot. Before purchasing a bed set, you need to look closely into your budget and find out what’s best for your needs (and your wallet.) At Fred’s Beds, we recommend prioritizing your sleep needs over a few other expenses since you will be spending around one-third of every day being in your bed. We’re also happy to offer financing options that you can apply for either in-store or online.
According to Consumer Reports, the three most common mattress types are foam, innerspring, and adjustable air. However, it’s important that you reflect on your personal preference (and your partner’s) and weigh the different options that meet your standard. For example, if you like to play sports or exercise frequently, a memory foam mattress would be an excellent choice since it can help cushion your aching muscles. For sleepers who want their mattress to be both durable and comfortable, latex should be their go-to option. To help clarify your needs, we suggest you think about these questions:
Think about the area where you want to place your bed and the amount of space that it may take up. Here’s a list of bed sizes for your reference:
Also, don’t forget to measure the hallways, doorways, and stairwells. While it isn’t hard to maneuver the mattress and slightly bend it around a corner, you have to keep the box spring in mind as it is not as flexible. Additionally, you need to take into account your lifestyle. A full-size bed may fit your needs now, but in a couple years, a queen-size may be more ideal for you and your family.
Besides a supporting device for your mattress, a bed frame can also aesthetically enhance your bedroom décor. It needs to be structurally sound to elevate your sleep and support motion transfer. In addition to the traditional steel bed frame that we’re all familiar with, here are some other options available in the market:
Like mattresses, bed linens are another highly personal element when it comes to a bed set. When purchasing bedsheets and pillowcases, you want to focus on details like thread count, material, and pattern. These things may change, depending on the season and the climate where you live. To add a nice, aesthetic touch to your bedroom, you can also go for a color scheme for your linen and throws. Since your skin is in contact with your bed linens every night, why not spend some time researching and find the linens that can comfortably ease you into your sleep?
