Asking what bed is best for sleeping is much like asking, “how long is a piece of string?” If there was a standard answer to the question of the best bed, there would be a standard bed and mattress set for everyone on the planet. Unfortunately, or perhaps, fortunately, there are so many options available to suit different people. Choosing a bed is a hugely personal decision, and there really isn’t a one-size-fits-all answer. When it comes to finding the best bed for sleeping, you need to consider these things:


  1. Mattress Type:

One of the most vital things to consider when buying a new bed for sale is the type of mattress. A mattress can make or break your sleep quality and be the difference between a happy night of shuteye and an exhausting night spent tossing and turning. When it comes to mattress firmness, your choice will be based on several things:

  • The Position that You Sleep in: Firstly, consider the position that you sleep in. As a general rule, side sleepers can get away with softer mattresses, whereas back and stomach sleepers might be better suited to firmer ones.
  • The Weight It Needs to Hold: Firmness level, while partly determined by sleeping position, is also determined by weight. Firmer mattresses are usually better equipped to deal with heavier weights, whereas softer varieties are best suited for lighter weights or children.
  • Your Personal Preference and Comfort: Theories aside, you also have to get a feel for what type of bed feels most comfortable for you. Consider your bed at home or the last time that you slept at a hotel. Hotel beds are usually somewhere in the middle, neither too firm nor too soft, much like our gentle-firm mattress varieties.
  • Medical Ailments: Sometimes, medical conditions will determine the type of mattress or bed for sale that an individual chooses. Our Orthopaedic range offers extra support to the musculoskeletal system, evenly distributing the weight so that pressure points are supported.


  1. The Size of the Bed and Weight Capacity:

Choosing the best bed for sale for sleeping is also all about the size of the bed and the weight it needs to hold. While a child or small adult might comfortably sleep on a single bed, it probably won’t do for a larger adult or two people sharing a bed. The size of your chosen bed will also be determined by the size of the room and the type of room. Consider whether the bed will be used in the main bedroom, the spare bedroom, or a child’s room. Weight and size considerations are paramount when choosing the best bed for sale.

  1. Budget
