Use this checklist for selecting a bed which is durable, comfortable and suits your needs

A good bed is a big and important investment. After all if you don't get good sleep, your life doesn't move smoothly. With a variety of options available in the market, choosing the right unit can become a little confusing. Here are 5 factors that should be taken into consideration so that you make the right choice.

Measure the Size of the Bedroom
The size of the bed is determined according to size of the mattress that can fit within the bed. The most popular sizes are single, queen and king size bed. Know the dimensions of your bedroom and choose the most suitable design so that the room doesn't look bulky. There should be enough circulation space to move around the bed and the hinged panels of the wardrobe or drawers can open freely.

Choose the Right Style
When selecting a style, make sure that the design matches with the traditional, modern or transitional decor of the bedroom. Consider a bunk bed for the children's mattress room and opt for a four-poster bed only if the bedroom has a high ceiling. Sofa beds, folding beds and divans are ideal for compact homes or spare rooms.

Consider Storage Beds
Storage beds are space saving units that increase the functionality of the bedroom as they come with built-in storage. These beds are usually ideal for storing seasonal clothing, towels, blankets and so on. The different types of storage beds include:

Hydraulic: These come with a lift mechanism where the lid opens completely and it is easy to operate. -Beds with box storage: These are divided into two equal halves. One has to hold up the mattress to open the lids and access the storage. -Units with slide-out drawers: These are very convenient and comparatively easier to handle.

Select the Material
Invest in good quality beds as purchasing these is a long-term investment which lasts for years.

The different materials that are used for fabricating beds include teak, sal and rosewood, MDF, plywood, wrought iron and steel. Note that wooden beds are expensive, highly durable and give an aesthetically pleasing look while metal beds are comparatively cheaper and robust. Avoid using MDF ones as they are not very strong and durable. For the headboard you can opt for wood or an upholstered headboard panel if you prefer a softer base. The different types of upholstery materials include cotton, linen, velvet and leather.

Opt for Online, In-Store or Carpentered Beds
Before purchasing any bed, make sure that you have a budget in mind. Also, compare similar products to prevent yourself from overspending. You can purchase a bed directly from a furniture showroom. This is convenient because you can physically check the quality of the bed and lie down on it to check its comfort level. If you want to customize the piece as per your preferences then the best way is to go for a carpentered bed.

Nowadays beds are available online where you can order directly from the comfort of your home. Make it a point to go through the reviews, terms and conditions and return policy of the company before you commit and make any purchase.
