3 Tips For Choosing The Right Sized Bed For Your Bedroom

Everyone always seems to want to purchase a larger bed. After all, who wouldn't benefit from having a larger mattress that allows you to roll and move around without having to worry about falling off the bed? However if your bedroom is on the smaller side, a large bed could make your bedroom feel cramped and uncomfortable, potentially compromising your sleep and overall experience in the bedroom. Hence, it's extremely important to choose the right sized bed, and one that can give you ample room to breathe, move, and sleep comfortably. Struggling to figure out how to choose the right sized bed for your bedroom? Here are 3 tips that will certainly help you to do so!

1. Measure your bedroom

The first and most important thing to consider when picking your new bed and mattress is the size of your bedroom. As much as having a big bed is great, it's also important to ensure that you'll still have sufficient space to comfortably move around your room, without having to contort your body in different shapes and sizes. Similarly, while you can always push one side of the bed against the wall to maximise the amount of space in your bedroom, this could certainly be an issue when sharing a bed with others, as one person will constantly have to get on and off at the foot of the bed or climb over the others that they're sharing the bed with.  

Hence, before you checkout and finalise your purchase, take some time to measure the size of your bedroom. With access to the exact dimensions of your bedroom, you'll be better equipped to make a more sound purchase decision so that you won't end up purchasing a bed that's the improper size for your bedroom. 

2. Start experimenting with different sizes 

Now that you've gotten the exact dimensions of your bedroom, you can start shortlisting and narrowing your choices. Take a look at some of your top choices and take note of their dimensions. Then, using some painter's tape, mark out the footprint of these beds (focus on the dimensions of the bed frame since they're often slightly larger than your mattress) on the area where you plan to place your bed.

After marking out the space for your new bed, you'd also want to ensure that you still have ample room to walk around either side of the bed and the foot  at least 90cm. You'd also want to ensure that you'll still be able to open any closet doors or drawers in your bedroom. If everything looks good, you can now finalise your purchase and wait in excitement as you await the arrival of your new bed! If not, don't get discouraged and keep on shopping. There's certainly a bed out there for everyone, so just continue shopping until you find the right one! 

3. Consider storage beds

If you've done the measurements and realised that you could afford a larger bed in your bedroom, as long as you took some of your other pieces of furniture out, you might want to give storage beds a chance! Often times, when trying to determine what sized furniture to get, there always seems to be this dilemma between a larger piece of furniture versus a larger amount of storage space. Thankfully, with storage beds, you'll be able to enjoy the luxury of a larger sized bed without necessarily having to sacrifice a large amount of storage space.
