How to choose the right size bed for adults

>

According to SleepMaker, most people in New Zealand sleep on a queen size bed. Whilst this is the perfect size for some, circumstances change, so when buying a new bed, it makes sense to go big (space and budget permitting).

The average person spends about one third of their life sleeping, so you should make sure you choose a size mattress that will accommodate all situations. If you have a partner, it’s recommended that the bed be wide enough for you both to lie side by side, hands behind heads, without elbows touching. The mattress also needs to be at least 10cm longer than the tallest person.

A bigger bed should also improve your sleep quality. If you like to sleep sprawled out chances are you won’t be impacting anyone else, you’ll also be less likely to feel your partner moving around and there will be more room if your kids or pets join you.

How to choose the right size bed for kids

>

Choosing a child’s first bed is often a big deal for parents, especially if they are moving their ‘baby’ from a cot into a bed.

Although many people might be tempted to buy a single bed with a foam mattress, a king single with a proper innerspring mattress is a better option as the kid won’t usually outgrow it before they are into their teenage years. You should buy the best mattress you can afford as this will help provide better sleep quality and the right support for growing spines.
