December 08, 2016 2 min read

So you’ve decided that it’s time to get a new bed. The fact that your mattress is giving up and that your bed frame is starting to sink a little is persuading you that it’s time. But you’re torn on whether you should upgrade your full size mattress to a king. And you aren’t exactly sure if you want to keep that old, rickety metal bed frame, or if you want to splurge on a center piece. Lately you’ve seen platform beds, floating beds, memory foam beds, and even a traditional mid century bed has caught your eye. You just can’t make up your mind. Well, never fear. This article will help you figure out your needs and your wants. Ultimately, you’ll be able to make a decision on what you want your next bed to look and feel like.

Your Size Matters

Are you a big or small person? If you’re someone who can still fit into kid’s clothes (and there’s no shame if that’s true!) you could probably stick with a full or queen size mattress/bed. However, if you’re someone who is big and tall then you may need to be upgrade your bed to a king or California King. And if you’re a famous basketball player who is much taller than the average human being, you may need to customize your bed.

And if you’re sleeping alongside someone else, you will definitely need a queen size. A full size mattress could possibly fit the both of you, but you’ll both feel uncomfortable throughout the night. And there’s no shame in upgrading to a King as well. It just means more space for rolling around.

Choosing the Bed Frame

Are you looking for something luxurious and magnificent? Or are you looking for something simplistic that will get the job done? Whatever the case, there are plenty of options for you to choose from.
