Did you know that most of us spend one-third of our lives in bed, everyday we go for sleep for 8 hours. We do spend a lot of time in bed and the bed we spend it in as a lot to do with how comfortable we are during the night and day. You should also care about your bed because a good night’s sleep is essential for a good day head.In conclusion a bed is a long term investment, because usually you will have it for about 10 years.

Have you been having difficulty sleeping lately? Do you toss and turn, wake up in the middle of the night, or have an ache in your back? The problem might be less bout your body and more about what your body is lying on. Abnormalities in your sleep routine could be signs that you need to buy a new mattress and box spring. But what’s the best way to shop for a new bed set? This article will give you some suggestions about buying a bed that will be just right for your body. 

The most important thing that you should look for, while buying a bed, is the comfort. Unless and until the bed is comfortable, you won’t enjoy sleeping on it. Therefore, you should always sit for a while on the bed and check if you can feel the comfort or not.Here are some questions you should ask yourself when you are thinking at comfort:

How does it feel?
If you cannot find a comfortable position no matter how you lie, you probably have the wrong mattress. The “right” bed or mattress will cure your insomnia or sleep, but a bed or mattress that’s uncomfortable or unsuited to your needs will add to sleep problems. 

Choose a good mattress
The mattress is the heart of your bed and the part of the purchase you should spend most time and money on. The secret of having a good night’s sleep is the mattress and bed base you choose. Always remember that a ‘bed’ is a mattress and a base working together, you should not consider them in isolation and should ideally always try them together.

If you go on vacation and sleep better on the hotel bed than on your bed at home…you may need a new mattress. Pay attention to how your body feels in the morning. Aches and stiffness could be a sign that your mattress needs to be chucked. There are all kinds of mattresses these days, but when choosing a mattress, it all depends on you and what you like.

For instance, if you sleep on your stomach, you would probably prefer a softer mattress. If you sleep on your back, you may want something more firm. The only way to find out is to try out the mattress. Go to the store, lay on the mattress for a few minutes in the position you usually sleep. If it’s not comfortable, move on the next bed. 

Don’t be afraid to test out the mattress in the store! And if you share a bed with someone, be sure to shop together. Test mattress support by lying beside your sleeping partner you shouldn’t roll toward each other and one person shouldn’t feel motion as the other leaves the bed. If a bed is too soft, you will sink into it,putting unnecessary strain on your muscles, or roll towards the middle. If it is too hard, it will not mould to the contours of your body.

Bed size
The general rule of thumb is to buy the biggest bed you can fit into the room. The larger the bed, the more room you (and your sleeping partner) have to move in the night without disturbing each other.

If you have a small bedroom, you might not have room for a king size bed, even if it’s really what you want. So you can see how the size of your room is one factor to consider. That said, the bed obviously has to fit the bedroom. Remember to leave enough space to easily get in and out of the room and to allow for opening windows, cupboards and closets. 

How to find a great bed
Many people make this mistake just buying the first thing to have a place to sleep that night.To find the best for you, ask friends, lie on some in the stores, spend a night in a good hotel, and try as many as you can.In this way you’ll improve your experience and you’ll send your money wisely.

Now if you want to buy a new bed you just have to go to a showroom and try as many beds as you can. Take your time and try more than one bed in the showroom so ensure you make the right choice. To test a bed, make sure you are wearing comfortable clothes, take off shoes and outdoor clothing and lie down on the bed.

Don’t just sit on the edge and bounce up and down, actually lay down and stay there for ten minutes or more. If the store doesn’t like you doing this then they’re in the wrong business, and you should take your money to a different store. Do not be embarrassed about lying on the beds in the showroom, as that is what they are there for.

    If you really want a great mattress, check out Posture Pedic. They have the BEST mattresses. My only complaint about Tempur and Posture Pedics is that you can’t flip the mattress over. And they mold to your body, so I guess you have to buy a new one every ten years? I’ve had mine for two.

    Mmmm….I think TempurPedic beds are overrated. They talked it up with the whole NASA story. But honestly…I think there are better mattresses out there.
