Guide To Buying The Right Bed In Singapore
The bed is our sanctuary for rest and relaxation in our home. Choosing the right bed can take time and also requires an informed decision to help you make the purchase. After all, your bed is the little oasis of comfort to keep you warm, safe and relaxed throughout your sleep.
There are some things to consider before making your purchase. Are you looking for a large or medium size bed? Does the bed frame matter to you? Are you trying to save space? Here’s a guide to buying the right bed in Singapore.
How Do I Choose The Right Bed?
1. Size of Bed
The size of the bed is the first thing to consider. This would be one of the easiest decisions because it depends on the size of your bedroom and whether you are sharing your bed with a partner. But even if you are single, you can also go for a large sized bed if there is ample space in your bedroom. Larger beds give you space and comfort to stretch out and you can enjoy the entire for yourself.
The next thing is to think about the decor of your bedroom. Are you going for Zen or Scandinavian? It will affect the decision of the type of bed frame to purchase.
3. Extra Storage
Another practical thing to consider is if you are looking for extra storage space in your bedroom. Do you intend to keep your bedding under your bed? Having a storage bed helps immensely if you don’t have enough space in your bedroom wardrobe.
4. Types of Beds
One of the most bought in the market, divan beds come in platform style or with drawer space where you can store multiple items. There are also sprung edge divans which comes with more bounce. Bedding Affairs’ divan platform bed comes with customised leather of your choice.
5. Ottomon Beds
The ottomon bed offers extra storage for your bedroom. The storage space can be accessed by lifting the mattress from the side or bottom, which reveals a larger compartment within the bed. As ottomans allow you to use the entire base of the bed as storage, it offers a much larger storage space than drawers. Bedding Affairs’ ottomon bed also allows you to choose the colour of your bedframe and headboard. You are also able to get the bedframe with a mattress as a set.
6. Wooden and Metal Beds
A metal bed frame can add a sense of modern and chic style to your bedroom. A simple wooden bed frame can add a style statement as well, especially if you are going for the country or Scandinavian look.
7. Sofa Beds
Sofa beds are really versatile especially if you have limited space in your bedroom. If you are dressing up a guest bedroom, you can consider a sofa bed to allow your guest to sleep during the night and lounge on the sofa during the day. When choosing a sofa bed, make sure to find the mattress that is comfortable and durable.
8. Children’s Beds
As a parent, you will need to consider if you want a storage bed to keep your child’s books, toys and games. Also, if you have two kids who are sharing the room, you might want to consider a bunk bed. What is important is in picking a children’s bed that is both comfortable and cosy for your child.
9. Adjustable Beds
Adjustable beds are popular for their therapeutic effects if you are suffering from back pains, sore joints, acid reflux and even snoring. Adjustable beds allow you to elevate your legs or head at the tap of a button. Bedding Affairs’ Sleepthetic™ Bed Base Version X comes with massage functions, lumbar support, USB ports to under bed LED light to prevent falling. It also comes with Wall Hugger Technology where the bed base is able to adjust towards the wall so that you are not moved away from your bedside table.
