How To Choose The Perfect Bed

There’s no better feeling than climbing into bed, stretching your legs and cosying up under a fresh set of bedding after a long day. You spend a third of your life asleep, so it’s important you invest well. The wrong bed can lead to many issues including back pain and restless nights. A good night’s sleep ensures a good start to your day. With that in mind, check out our handy guide on finding the best type of bed for you.

Make practical decisions

When making a large investment, it’s important to make sure you’re doing it right. First things first, it’s crucial you ensure the sizing is correct.

Analyse the space you have and decide on how big you want your bed to be. Start by measuring the maximum length and width of the spot you plan to put your new bed in and keep a note of the measurement.

If you’re more of a visual planner, place paper around the area to plot out potential positions before you measure to get an idea of how it will look.

Once you’ve found your perfect bed, it’s a good idea to measure the space again to ensure the bed frame, headboard and other potential accessories all fit within the space.

While we’re on the topic of space, use this to your advantage and think about how your bed could double up as storage.

If space is something you’re struggling with – whether it be a place to keep store your shoes and accessories or somewhere to keep your old photographs and keepsakes – consider a bed frame that comes with storage units built in.

Choosing the bed frame 

Choosing a bed frame comes with many factors. One factor being personal preference on design and the other being the practicality of it.

Each exceptional custom bed frame from Delcor is tailored to suit the customer’s individual preferences. Simply select your size and style dimensions and the team of experts will ensure your custom bed frames match seamlessly with your bedroom space.

Each made to measure bed frame is built by the signature craftsmen with the utmost precision and attention to detail, making your piece of bedroom furniture exactly how you once imagined. 

Completely unique and tailored to individual needs, the handmade, wooden bed frames are fully customisable. Simply select from a variety of elegantly modern, or beautifully vintage bed frame styles, then pick your desired colourways and signature upholstered fabrics and the team at Delcor will take care of the rest.

Style is everything 

Now comes the fun part. Choosing the right fabric and styling your bed is without a doubt one of the most exciting parts of purchasing a new bed.

Style is unique to everyone, we all have different tastes and ideas for our bedroom. Having the option to completely customise your bed with Delcor means you can make it exclusively yours.

If you want something authentic to a particular period or a fabric to match your existing furniture, the designers at Delcor will source it for you, from vintage damask for your Victorian sofa to Italian leather for your Boxer chair. Or, if you want to create a highly original look, they’ll give you interior design insights, such as how to choose a modern fabric for a period piece.

With a promise of using the highest grade of upholstery fabrics that meet the standards of quality and longevity, you can guarantee exceptional quality.

Consider the mattress 

A bed is nothing without its mattress. A mattress is unique to the person, what works for some people may not be great for others.

Whether you prefer spring, foam or a combination of the two, it’s always best to discuss your requirements with an expert.

Your mattress should match not only your needs, but it should also complement your bed frame perfectly.

When it comes to choosing a mattress for Delcor beds, nothing else compares to the craftsmanship offered by Spink & Edgar.

Quality is key
