What bed do you choose?

Beds are essential furniture in the home. I love my bed, and often, after a hectic day at work, all I want to do is jump into my bed and sleep off. Funny thing is I’m not alone, and most people feel the way I do. Even medical experts suggest that a good night’s sleep forms an integral part of a healthy lifestyle. Just how do you expect to enjoy a cozy sleep, and when your bed is as good as Styrofoam?

The modern bed is the combination of the frame or support and the mattress. An ideal bed is a set up of the structure and mattress working in harmony to give you a perfect night experience.

Furniture stores offer us a wide variety of beds: wooden, metal, plastic, folding beds and even Inclined beds.

What bed is perfect for you? What bed should you choose? Those seem like easy questions, but I’ll tell you that buying an ideal bed can be a difficult decision. A bed that is less than ideal for you might have you waking up with joint pains and pressure points. Luckily, these pains are not severe and usually disappear within fifteen to twenty minutes. 

To avoid story that touches, let’s take a look at what you need to know before opting to buy a bed

How do you know which bed to buy?

There are several designs out there for you to buy. The problem is picking one. Perhaps, a bit of a personal backstory would help.

 A few years ago, I was faced with the decision to choose a bed that guarantees a good. It’s not only Drake that loves his bed. For someone as indecisive as I am, I find myself in a pickle when faced with this kind of decision. To make things easier for me, I went to the mattress store with my pillow. After picking my preferred choice, I lay down on the bed as I would when sleeping. I did this for fifteen minutes. The idea was to know how each bed felt on my body. It worked! I was able to pick a good bed for me. Several years after, the bed is still serving me well.

However, you don’t have to go through the same stress as me.  It’s far easier now, and you don’t have to go to the store anymore. Just get on your phone and order one. But, make sure you do your research before you make your choice. If you are going to be sharing the bed with your partner, I recommend you make this a joint decision. 

What kinds of beds are available for you?

The type of mattresses each person needs depends on personal preferences and body structure. These are some of the best types of beds for you to pick from:

  • Innerspring mattress
  • Latex mattresses 
  • Air compressed
  • Adjustable 
  • Memory foam
  • Hybrid beds


Innerspring mattress

Also called the coil mattresses, these are the most popular types of mattresses. They are the most widely used mattress around.  As the name implies, the innerspring mattress is designed with coils and springs placed inside to provide support and bounce to the human body. 

The physical structure of the innerspring mattresses supports enhancements like memory foam and latex foams. 


Due to the durable nature of the springs, the innerspring mattress lasts for a very long time, an average lifespan of seven years; they are pretty affordable too.


The springs or coils have a direct relationship with back support.  Some brands do not fit the beds with enough springs.

Latex mattress

Latex mattresses are built from natural and synthesis materials. They are famous for their bouncy properties and cooling nature. It is recommended for people with allergies.


Latex mattresses are eco-friendly. They also have antimicrobial properties 


These mattresses are built for firmness. If you prefer a soft cushy bed, this is not the best choice for you.

Air compressed mattress

These mattresses have a similar design to the innerspring mattress. However, the springs are replaced with columns of air. It can be readily adjusted to suit the preferences of whoever wants to sleep at that particular time. It has excellent use in hospitals 


The air compressed mattress is used as a back support for patients with backaches. 


If you don’t make your bed firm enough, you might wake up with backaches.

Adjustable mattress

These mattresses can be adjusted to varying angles. It can be modified to fit the preferences of whoever wants to sleep at that moment. The material is flexible enough to be subjected to strain in different angles. The physical structure can be changed based on the sleeping position

Memory foams

As the name suggests, memory foams are produced with foams of different densities and texture that contour to the shape of your body.

The foams contour around your body structure to give you a good night’s rest.


By conforming to your body structure, it reduces the pressure points. If your partner is a restless sleeper, you won’t be disturbed by their moment because the memory foam absorbs movement.


There are claims that memory foams can get extremely hot. This is due to the absorbance nature of the foams

Hybrid beds

Hybrid beds are innovative designs of two different types of beds. It was designed to create a perfect bed that maximizes the pros and minimizes the cons of these beds.

For instance, a latex and memory foam hybrid would improve the bounciness of memory foam and provide a cooling effect for the bed.


It’s the best type of bed. It is best for sleepers who want the best of both beds

Depending on your choice and your budget, you should make a decision that works for you. However, do not compromise on the quality of your sleep.
