When it comes to choosing the most appropriate beds for your yourself or your family members, you could easily find yourself overwhelmed by the sheer number of options. There are a plethora of choices, especially if you shop online or at some huge bed store. The question here is – How can you narrow down your search?

To help you out with this task, we have prepared this small buying guide that you can find useful when looking for new beds, bunk beds, blankets, sheets, bedspreads and all kinds of other bed accessories,


First and foremost, think about the size of the bed you plan to buy, as well as the size of your room. This will allow you to instantly eliminate a large number of options. If you have a large, spacious room with plenty of available space, you could consider getting a king sized bed. If your room is smaller, with less available space, make sure to go with a smaller bed, otherwise you will end up with a heavily cluttered room, or not enough space to even fit the bed.

Of course, in order to make the best choice, make sure to take perfectly accurate measures of the room you intend to place the bed in. Your choice of the bed should be largely dependent on these measures.

Next up, you will need to make sure the bed is capable of accommodating your body weight and height. If you plan on buying beds for kids, make sure they perfectly fit your kids, by being not too big or small. When it comes to the standard beds for couples, you will have a choice between twin, double, queen and king beds.


Once you have determined the size of the bed you need, proceed by determining the type that will provide you with the most comfort or the one that you prefer more. When it comes to the types, you can choose storage beds, platform beds, traditional headboard sleep units, canopy beds and more. Do not forget to consider whether or not your prefer just resting on a platform frame or having a mattress on box springs.

In addition, you might also need some extra storage, as well. If such is the case, make sure to look for beds that feature drawers, such as the storage beds or captain’s beds. You can also pick from a plethora of other platform beds that offer plenty of storage solutions for small bedrooms.


You should also compare various styles and designs, so as to choose a bed that will perfectly match the decor of your room and the rest of your furnishings. However, if you are not so keen of looking for a specific design, you can always go with an iron bed, which generally goes well with pretty much everything. If you decide to replace your current bedroom furnishings, you can easily find a plethora of furniture pieces that will perfectly match the bed you have decided to buy. By purchasing and adding a mirror, dresser, a chest, or some end tables, you can create a very comfortable and functional bedroom set up.

Finally, do not forget to compare warranties, shipping fees and prices, in order to get the best bang for your buck.
