Fobango can surely help you out with finding the right bed to help get you the comfortable night’s sleep you deserve. Follow our checklist to make sure that you are getting the right bed for your needs and we’ll make sure you get a great deal on it!

ŸSIZE. The easiest place to start is with the sizing. Your bed needs to be able to sleep you (and maybe your significant other!) comfortably. It’s not just the width you need to consider, but the length of the bed as well so don’t forget to check the dimensions in full. You don’t want your 6 foot 6 inch hubby’s feet hanging out in the cold! For kids, make sure you get a bed that will fit them as they grow.

ŸSPACE.  Make sure you have enough room to accommodate the bed you choose. Bigger isn’t better if it dominates the space you are putting it in. Make sure that you still have room for dressers, nightstands and just to walk around without always bumping into something.

ŸSTYLE. Choose a style that not only fits your personal taste, but that fits the decorating scheme you have as a whole. A classic poster bed may look out of place if everything else is a contemporary style. Everything doesn’t have to be an exact match, particularly in the kid’s rooms, but you want a bed that matches fairly closely at least.

ŸBUILD. Think about the headboard and foot board carefully. It may seem like a small detail, but if you spend a lot of time in your bed, kicking back watching movies on television for instance, you are going to want a lower footboard, if any, so that your view isn’t blocked. If you sit up in bed and read a lot, you’ll want a headboard that isn’t going to be uncomfortable if you are sitting upright – even if you stuff three pillows between you and it.

MATERIALS. Is the bed made from a material you actually like? Beds come with leather headboards, metal, fabric and wood so you need to know that whatever you choose is going to make sense for you. If you can’t cozy up to the idea of a metal headboard or one with a fabric, for instance, then it doesn’t make sense to choose those for no other reason but the aesthetics they offer.
