The right time to replace your bed

Buying a bed is a big deal and can often feel like a purchase for life. But, just like your mattress and other pieces of furniture, your bed isn’t built to last a lifetime. In fact, your bed will be ripe for replacement after around 10 years, as it will have gone through more than its fair share of wear and tear over a decade of dreaming. Even after 7 years, a replacement bed could be the key to unlocking a better night’s kip and although you’ll want to get your money’s worth, you can’t put a price on sleep.

How to notice if your bed needs replacing?

There are many tell-tale signs that your bed is getting in the way of quality sleep. It’s time to conduct your very own bed MOT!

Firstly, think about your own nightly sleeping experience. If you’ve been tossing and turning in the night, waking up with aches and pains or can feel springs under the surface when you’re lying down, it’s possible that your bed needs to be upgraded. Creaks, moans, cracks and other noises are also big indicators that it’s time for something new so keep an ear out for your bed’s cries for help!

Beyond the feel and sound of the bed, you can also visually inspect whether there are signs of significant wear and tear. If you notice that the legs of the beds are worn out, the base of your bed is on the saggy side or your new mattress has sustained some unwanted damage, it’s time for a new bed!

Choosing the right bed for you

If you’re taking the plunge and opting to upgrade your sleep station, take a bow and get out that tape measure. Getting your measurements right is the most important step on your journey to better sleep as you need to know what dimensions you’re working with.

Once you’ve embraced your inner architect and got your bedroom mapped out, you can figure out what size bed will be best for you and your space. If you’re a solo sleeper who likes to spread out during the night, then perhaps a double bed is the way to go. Or maybe a king size bed is needed to cater for your partner’s flailing limbs in the night! You should also consider whether you need some extra storage from your bed and then turn your mind to aesthetics to figure out what kind of look you are going for from your interior design.
