Individuals who have turned 50 have to invest in a decent bed to be able to sleep in style and comfort. It is very likely that you have invested a lot of money on a new kitchen, bathroom, holidays or sound systems. Why not invest in a king single bed that fully complies with safety standards? The best bed may not be the lowest in price but you achieve greater value for the money paid.
How to choose the bed that suits your requirements
The most common types of beds are the divans and the bedsteads. Divans have a deep-sided base with the mattress sitting on top while bedsteads have mattresses that sit on the slats within a frame. In terms of aesthetics, the besteads are better option however; divans provide more support and built-in storage under the bed. On the other hand, there is also the king single bed that can be separated into 2 beds and flat packed for easy assembly.
It is very important to measure the size of the room before buying a bed. The king-sized bed may be your best option because you are going to share it with a partner but will it fit the room? A standard double bed usually measures 4 feet and 6 inches wide which allows 2 persons at least 2.3 feet each of sleeping space. According to the National Bed Federation this is less than the space provided in a baby’s cot. It is also important to consider the length of the bed if the partner is more than 6 feet tall.
Another important factor is the mattress. If the mattress is already 7 years old, it is about to replace it with a new one. You certainly do not want to sleep in a soggy or lumpy bed because you will wake up with some stiffness and aches.
It is suggested to buy the bed and mattress together. If you are going to buy a king single bed and mattress, buy from the same manufacturer because the standard dimensions in one country may not be the same as yours. If you have to assemble the bed, make sure that it comes with a warranty.
