DOES BED SIZE MATTER?


 

Bed size is a really important factor to consider when purchasing a new bed. To get the best  chance of a restful and restorative night's sleep, you need to ensure that you have plenty of space to move while you sleep. This is particularly important in the case of two people sharing a bed, where inadequate space can cause disruption and a poor night's sleep, increasing the likelihood of tireness and fatigue. 

The British National Bed Federation reccomends that a couple sharing the same bed should be able to comfortably lay side-by-side in bed, with their arms behind their heads and their elbows out, without touching each other. Here at Solent Beds and Furniture we stock a wide range of beds in all the standard sizes, from small single right the way through to super king, helping you to find the right bed for that perfect night's sleep.
