Finding the bed of your dreams isn’t always easy, but we have some advice to help you get there.

#1 Size Out Your Space

Whether you’re in a master bedroom or a one-bedroom apartment, getting the proper measurements of your space is a must. Pick up your measuring tape and size your space, starting with your largest bedroom wall. Make sure to record your measurements and use them to determine what size bed will best fit your room.
#2 Build Your Budget

Create a realistic budget for your dream bed. Remember that budgeting for a bed is different from budgeting for a vacation. You’ll come home to this bed every day, and it might be worth splurging a little. Consider the features you value most, how much they’ll cost, and calculate a budget that reflects your financial goal and bed goals.
#3 Height Matters

Most people forget this step, but it’s essential. The ideal bed height varies greatly from person to person. The best way to determine the right height is to consider your height, age, lifestyle, and style preferences. A good rule of thumb (to ensure comfort) is to look for a bed that allows your feet to touch the floor while you’re sitting on the edge.
#4 Consider Your Style

Your bed is going to take up a lot of space in your room, so you want it to look good. You can choose from different styles, such as traditional, modern, minimalist, wooden, plush, and many more. Think about the style that will fit your interior design best and the styles you are typically drawn to– this should give you a clear idea of what you’re looking for.
#5 Make Room For Your Dream Bed

Okay, so you’ve found the bed for you– now what? It’s time to clear out your home so your new bed can squeeze through and get to the spot you want. Determine where you will place it (keep your measurements in mind) and clear the way for your dream bed to arrive. Remove any delicate items in your room until it’s all set up, and get ready to decorate your space around your brand new bed.
Finding the perfect bed may be stressful, but it will all be worth it in the end. Follow these easy steps to make sure you’re sleeping on the bed of your dreams for years to come!
