People often try to save a lot of money when they are buying beds. What they don't realize is the amount of time in their life that they spend in their bed. The average person will usually spend about a third of their life in bed. That is a great deal of time to be sleeping on a cheap mattress and base.
Having the wrong bed can cause you all kinds of problems so here are a few tips on what to look out for when buying a bed.

Try out the beds with the mattress you are selecting in the shop. You will then know if it is too hard or too soft for you. A harder mattress isn't necessarily better for you, only you will know. You might think that you get a bad back from having a mattress that is too soft, but in fact, it can be just because you have a mattress that doesn't support it well enough. A soft mattress can give as good support as a hard mattress as long as you choose the right one.

Make sure the bed you choose will fit up your stairs and into the bedroom. Not all bed come to pieces and you can easily misjudge how small the space is. Don't get a bigger bed if your bedroom is small. It can make you feel too crowded and that will make it harder to sleep. However, make sure the bed is big enough for you. If you regularly have children in bed with you consider spending a little more on a larger bed to make more space.

There is no point spending lots of money on a new bed if you put a low quality mattress on it. Get advice on the best type of mattress for the bed you have chosen. Don't wait until your bed falls apart before you buy a new one. On average you need to replace your bed every seven years. Think about this when deciding what price range of bed to choose.

When you are choosing a new bed, set aside plenty of time to look around different shops and at different types of bed. Don't feel pressured to make a decision by sales staff that offer you a good deal to buy straight away. Go out shopping with some idea of what you want. Have a price range in mind and know whether it is its size, the shape or the material it is made of that is the biggest priority for you.

Make sure the bed is suitable for supporting your weight. If your joint weight is quite heavy a firm mattress might not be the best choice. If you are buying the bed to share with someone else try it out together and lie on it to see how you would feel sleeping on it with them.

Over the average seven years of the beds life you will spend twenty thousand hours in bed so keep this in mind when you are searching for the bed and take time to choose the most suitable for you.
