When Is It Time For A New Bed?

When Is It Time For A New Bed?

Our bedrooms are our haven at home. They are where we relax and find peace after a busy day, and therefore, it is important to make sure that they are a calm environment. 

When you are looking forward to a great night of rest, the key is coming home to a super comfortable bed, so you can unwind each evening, and wake up feeling refreshed and ready for the next day. The most important part of creating the perfect sanctuary for a great night’s sleep is having a high-quality bed frame, and a good mattress too.

How Often Should I Buy a New Bed?

Most people buy a new bed every 6-8 years. However, when you choose a high-quality quality bed frame this isn’t necessarily the case. Looking for a bed frame that comes with a reliable guarantee ensures that your new bed will last.

Our collection of beds are handcrafted in our UK workshop and they come with a 25 Year Guarantee, so you won’t have to worry about finding a new bed frame anytime soon. Our beds are designed and made to last, you'll never need to replace one...ever! Choose a mattress that you love, and you’ll find that alongside a high quality bed frame, you’ll be able to create the bedroom of your dreams.

A good rule of thumb is to choose a bed frame and a mattress that complements the other. They are designed to work together, so changing one can impact the feel of the other. If you’re thinking about buying a new bed frame consider purchasing a new mattress too!

Do I Need A New Bed Frame? 

When you have owned a mattress for several years, it is usually a good idea to start thinking about getting a new one, as its wear and tear is likely to affect the quality of your sleep. Some signs that your mattress needs to be replaced include, waking up with aches and pains, and your mattress appearing lumpy. If these apply to you, your sleep can be improved by a brand-new mattress. 

However, you may also need a new bed frame to support your brand-new mattress properly. Your bed frame is the foundation of your mattress, so, if you don’t choose the right one you could end up having an uncomfortable night’s rest. A high-quality and durable bed frame, that is built to last, will benefit your sleep long term.

What Should I Look For When Buying a New Bed?

When looking to buy a new bed, there are a variety of factors to consider:

  • Longevity

  • By choosing a bed frame that is sure to last, you won’t have to worry about replacing your bed anytime soon. Look for a new bed that comes with a reliable guarantee for that added peace of mind.

  • Styling

  • Whether you’re looking for a bed that will be the focal-point of your bedroom, or a one that will make a subtle statement. Decide which look you’re going for, and then look for bed frames that will suit your choice of decor.

    For example, if you’re looking for a bed with wow-factor, our Kenton Black Bed Frame is a showstopper. With its dark painted frame and dramatic design, it’ll create a boutique hotel style in your bedroom. Alternatively, if you prefer a sleek, smooth finish our Gosforth Bed Frame is the perfect choice for those who enjoy a modern, minimalist and unfussy style.

  • Size

  • Selecting the right size of bed not only ensures your comfort, but also harmonises with the layout of your room.

    Choosing a super-king sized bed may not be ideal for a smaller room, however the option of a double bed could be exactly what you’re looking for. Decide which bed sizes will fit into your space, and then consider which would suit your needs. If you find yourself wishing you had a little more space overnight, upsize from your previous bed for a luxurious bedroom refresh!

  • Materials

  • Choosing a bed made from top-quality materials is a sure way to ensure its longevity. Also, deciding on a bed frame with sustainability in mind is the perfect way to ensure your newest home decor addition doesn’t cost the earth. 

    Here at Funky Chunky Furniture, we proudly create solid wooden furniture with top-quality timber in our UK workshop. Funky Chunky Furniture’s Sustainability Pledge is a promise to do our best, and we ask you, our customers, to pledge the same. Enjoy your new bed even more, knowing that you’ve done a little bit of good for our planet. 

    Which Bed Is Right For Me? 

    Picking the perfect bed can transform your sleep overnight. However, there are various styles available, so how do you choose the best bed frame for your bedroom? 

    First, consider what style of bed will suit your bedroom the best. For example, if you have a bedroom with a low ceiling, perhaps it is a loft conversion, then a low bed frame is ideal for you. Our ultra-low Pandon Bed is the perfect option for a handcrafted wooden bed frame that will make the most of a low ceiling height. 

    Alternatively, if your bedroom is on the smaller side, you could choose a bed frame that helps to make your room appear more spacious. The Baltic Bed is a quirky design which creates the illusion that the solid wood bed is floating! This makes it the perfect style for smaller bedrooms as the feel of a bigger floor area helps to open the space up. 

    Another choice of bed frame is one with a lot of storage space. Whether you are in need of some extra space or you’d just like to declutter your sanctuary. We love the Amble Bed, with its many storage options, including floating bedside tables. It is an absolute must to maximise your bedroom’s storage space and help you to relax in the comfort of your calm and tidy home. 

    Overall, there are some great options when it comes to choosing a long-lasting, quality bed frame. So, don’t let an old bed affect your beauty sleep!

    Update Your Bedroom With New Accessories

    If you’re refreshing your bedroom, you could use some new accessories to add the finishing touches to your room and make it your sanctuary. Choose lighting that gives a warm feel to your bedroom, or opt for staple lamps that match your style of decor. For example, if your bedroom is a calm Scandi-inspired space, this grey lamp is the perfect addition to your bedside table. 

    Another great option for adding that all-important serenity and calm to your bedroom is choosing soothing fragrances, and the relaxing flicker of candlelight to help you unwind.
