Beds – buy the best you can afford

Whether your budget is ?200 or ?2,000, always make sure you’re getting the most for your money.

How do you decide how much money to spend on your new bed? If you’re lucky and money isn’t a problem, you can buy the bed that you really want and get a top quality mattress to put on top of it. Most of us, however, are constrained by what we can afford and can only set aside a certain amount of money to fund a new bed.

How to set your budget

The first thing to do is to research the types of beds and prices available. At Bed Next Day, we offer beds that start at just ?109 – although our most expensive bed is ?1249. This means that there’s a wide range of beds at affordable prices. Take a look at the styles available and the prices that are offered, so that you can see what type of bed appeals to you and how much you might have to spend to get it. Set a budget for the base or the frame, and don’t forget about the mattress. If anything, you should spend just as much or more on your mattress as you do on your bed. It is the mattress that gives you the support whilst you are sleeping, and the wrong mattress, or a cheap mattress could have a negative effect on the quality of your sleep. Combine the price of the bed frames you like and the mattress you need to help you set a guideline budget.

How to spend your budget

Once you’ve decided what you want, shop around for a bargain. If you can find a retailer that’s offering a good discount on the things you need, you may even be able to buy a better quality bed or mattress than you could originally afford. A little research and shopping around could help you to buy the very best that you can afford.
