Choosing the right size bed?

Choosing a new bed? Before you buy in a rush, desperate to score that brilliant bed deal, check you've got the size right. Its best to allow at least 45cm of free space either side of the bed for enough room to vacuum and change the sheets. Note that divan beds come in the same size as standard mattresses, and if you're ordering a bed with drawers underneath for storage, allow enough space for them to open. Bedsteads also require more room than divans.

For those who are looking for a bed to sleep two adults sharing, a king size or super king bed will provide a comfier night's sleep than a standard double. Both sleepers should always be able to lie on the bed with their hands behind their heads, elbows out and not touching. The bed should also be 10-15 cm longer than the tallest personal sleeping in it. 

Here are the choices:

  • Single: 90cm x 190cm
  • Small double (often called a queen): 120cm x 190cm
  • Double: 135cm x 190cm
  • King: 150cm x 200cm
  • Super king: 180cm x 200cm

Which bed style to pick?

Divan or bedstead? For a dramatic statement, pick a bedstead. For anyone with a small bedroom, we suggest a divan with storage hidden in the base, and you can match it with a headboard, too.

Consider choosing an adjustable bed if you use it not only to sleep in, but to watch Netflix, catch up on work emails or have a medical condition. With options for raising your head, legs and body, in double versions, each side can be adjusted individually. You will, however, have to purchase a specially made mattress at the same time. 

For those who want a storage savvy bed to lay their head, take a browse at storage beds, where both the base and mattress lift to reveal masses of storage within.

How do I know the bed will be comfy?

You should always try before you buy when it comes to a bed. Even if you want to try in store and then purchase online, don't be shy when it comes to testing it out. Stretch out fully on the bed for up to 10 minutes, making sure to change position. After checking the size suits your body, be sure to read reviews online to see others opinions. If the bed is for you and a partner, lie on it together and ensure the bed suits you both before purchasing.
