Beginners guide to buying from an online bed shop
Buying a new bed and mattress can be a big decision. Everyone is different, and that means everyone needs a bed and mattress suited to their specific needs. Here are our top tips to look for when purchasing from an online bed shop.
Do your research!
Before you go to buy a bed or mattress online, it could be a good idea to do your research on what type of bed and mattress could be good for you. Researching beforehand is particularly important for when you are looking for a mattress or bed frame, and it could be the difference between an uncomfortable night’s sleep and a good one.
Measure your space
Before buying from an online bed shop, it is essential that you measure the space that the bed or mattress is going to be. There would be nothing worse than ordering the perfect looking bed or mattress for it to not fit in the space you need it in.
Does the company have a working telephone number?
If the online bed shop you are considering using doesn’t have a telephone number, then proceed with caution, as we have heard about people purchasing online only to end up with a problem and not being able to contact anyone to resolve it. Indeed, as wonderful as the website is there are times when you still need to interact with a real live human. This could be for advice or to address any other issue, either way having a telephone number is a positive sign. Our telephone lines are open Monday- Friday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and we also have an WhatsApp chat service available Monday-Friday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Look at a size guide
To help you along whilst you’re measuring, looking at a bed size guide could be helpful. Bedroomking provides a handy measuring guide for all UK standard sizes and custom sizes on our website on www.bedroomking.co.uk.
If you have a smaller room or a unique-sized room, then buying a bed with storage underneath can be a great way to clear a clutter-free bedroom. We have storage options from divan base with 2 or 4 drawers, ottoman divan gas lift storage or metal gas lift storage.
