Since we spend a third of every day in our beds, it’s important to choose the right one. Full size bed, King size bed, superking size bed – you choose.
Every night, we spend at least 8 hours in our beds, amounting to a third of our day. Whether or not we can sleep, and how refreshed we are in the morning, are both dictated by how well you choose your new bed. If you are not sleeping well, your bed could be one of the key factors.
Beds are not our cleanest of companions. We sweat during the night, we salivate, we go to bed dirty. Our beds end up soaking in these contaminants and also gathering dust and mites that could have an overall detrimental effect on health. These conditions, along with everyday “wear and tear” mean that a mattress has to be replaced about every 8 or 10 years.
Full Size and King Size Beds
If you are married or sleep with a partner, invest in a full size bed. Studies have demonstrated that couples cramped into a smaller space sleep worse, with both partners experiencing a loss of sleep and concentration the next day. The study showed that as the size of the bed increased, so did the comfort of the sleepers: best results were recorded ion a king-size or superkingsize bed. Of course, it is always possible simply to buy a new and bigger mattress, but make sure to take measurements of your bed before you take to the shops, and ensure that it fits into your living area.
A Good Sleeping Atmosphere
Sleeping well is about creating an atmosphere conducive to relaxation, where your body can relax comfortably. Look for a mattress that suits your circumstances: if you have a bad back, look for a mattress with enough give, but which provides ample support.
Mattresses are now available that create a good atmosphere for different sleepers. There are even beds that zip together to create two different mattresses. There are many factors to look at when buying a bed. If you have ever slept in a great bed, try to remember what made it so great. Even go as far as calling the hotel at which you stayed. A great bed is a treasure.
Beds and mattresses may be expensive, but when contrasted to the obvious health and lifestyle benefits, it is easy to see buying a new bed or mattress as an investment. Make sure to shop around until you’re certain you have the best deal. Visit local wholesalers.
