Finding the Right Bed for You

When beginning your search for the perfect bed, so many of us focus on the headboard when in fact the most important part of a bed is the mattress! Beds are not only about looks, but also about comfort. Remember that you will be spending eight hours a night on your bed and a good might sleep is essential for living! Not only do you want the perfect look, you also need the perfect feel. Luckily at Baer’s, our interior designers have the knowledge of pairing the two together.

Size Matters

The size of the bed is just as important as the comfort level. If it’s just you, then a full or queen size will work. However, if you have a significant other or a big family or you just want some extra space, then you might want to think about investing in a king. Remember before choosing the right bed to measure your room and bring those measurements into the store. One of Baer’s specialists can take that information and help you decide which the perfect size bed for your space is.

Finding Your Style

Keeping design in mind, choosing the right headboard is imperative to creating the total comfort package. This step should always come second after deciding what size bed you need. There are so many styles to choose from that the decision making process can become overwhelming. “First, I like to get an idea of someone’s personal style. I will ask if they feel they are more traditional or contemporary. I have found that at my store in Boca there is a mix of everything,” says Wendy Rossi, a Baer’s interior designer based in Boca Raton. For the minimalist, a simple striped design like the Tommy Bahama Island Fusion Mandarin King Upholstered Panel Bed could be the perfect addition.

For the classy upscale look, a rustic design such as the Solana Upholstered Bed from Hooker Furniture breaks the mold of most boring bed frames. This tufted headboard with classic wooden footboard combination is finished with a natural wood creating the essence of old world charm.

The Mattress Test

Usually when you walk into a mattress or furniture store you have to test out each bed to see if you are going to be comfortable. Let’s admit it, a mattress is a huge purchase and a big commitment. Sometimes this process can be overwhelming and time consuming. At Baer’s, we have eliminated the guess work by partnering with Kingsdown’s bedMATCH™ technology to find the mattress that is best matched to your body type and favorite sleep position. Typically a customer shopping for a mattress will go through the 15 minute test, which means that they will lie on several mattresses for 15 minutes to see which they prefer. Not only is this not the most scientific way to choose a mattress, it is time consuming. With the Kingsdown bedMATCH™ you only need to lie on the test bed for 3 minutes! The test bed will use your personal profile information like height and weight, combined with over 1,000 scientific calculations to determine the best support for you.
