Did you know that the average person will spend around 318 months—or roughly one-third of their lives—sleeping in bed? That’s without considering all the time most of us spend lounging around in bed when relaxing!

Given the huge amount of time we spend in our beds, it’s clearly a good idea to invest in bedding that not only feels great to lie on but looks stylish in your room. For most of us, that means considering our sleep needs and preferences to decide on the perfect type of bed for your space.

If you’re not sure what to look for, or how to narrow down your options, we’ve got you covered. Here’s how to choose the right bed for your room.

Decide on a Bed Size

Before anything else, you’ll need to make a decision about the right bed size for your needs, as this will dictate the types of beds you might want to buy.

To consider bed sizes, there are two main questions you’ll want to ask yourself.

First, how big is your room, and how much space will you need available to walk around your bed? Second, how much space do you need to sleep comfortably?

Some people prefer a smaller bed to give them more room in their bedroom, while others sacrifice that space for a wider and more comfortable mattress. Balancing these two preferences can help you land on the perfect size for your needs.

Consider Different Bed Styles

Once you’ve decided on the right size, it’s time to consider the different bed styles. There are a few main types to choose from.

The most common types of beds are platform beds, which raise the mattress off the floor with a solid frame or bed base. You can find a huge variety of options to customize this traditional choice, from airy canopy beds to practical storage beds with drawers underneath.

Next are convertible beds, which allow the user to convert the piece into a different type of furniture. This includes things like a futon, pull-out sofa bed, murphy bed, and more.

In addition, you also have the option to choose unique bedding styles for multiple sleepers, such as bunk beds for children or trundle beds in the case of visitors.

No matter your personal preferences or your goals for the room, you can find a bed style that fits!

Visit a Bedding Store

The easiest way to see all of your options in person—and, more importantly, to test them out—is to visit a bedding store near you. Whether you decide to buy at the store or at an online retailer, visiting a bedding store can help you consider the look and feel of the bed style you’re considering. Check out the bed frames, lie down to test the mattress materials, and consider how the piece would look in your own room.

Find the Right Type of Bed for Your Room

With so many options available, finding the right type of bed can feel overwhelming. Fortunately, with a little consideration and a trip to your local bedding store, you can find the best bed for your room and your comfort needs. Do your research to find a bed that offers a great night’s sleep in a style that complements your bedroom.
