If it's time for you to get a new bed or mattress, don’t be put off from buying from an online bed shop.

Here are our 5 top tips to buying a 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 or mattress could be good for you. Researching beforehand is particularly important for when you are looking for a mattress, and it could be the difference between an uncomfortable nights sleep and a good one.

The general rule of thumb is if you sleep on your side, you should look for medium soft to medium firm mattresses that cushion impact points. If you are a back and stomach sleeper, you should look for medium firm beds that have only light conforming.

Measure your space

Before buying from an online bed shop, its 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 be in.

Look at a size guide

To help you along whilst you’re measuring, looking at a bed size guide could be helpful. Bed Guru provide a handy measuring guide for all UK standard sizes and custom sizes.

Consider custom sizes

If you are unsure what bed or mattress size to get, it could be worth looking into custom sizes. Bed Guru can make custom-sized mattresses, bed frames and divan bases, handmade to order for your unique space. Whether you want your new bed or mattress wider or narrower, shorter or longer, higher or lower, Bed Guru can design build and deliver your customised bed to your home, hotel or anywhere else.

Consider storage

If you have a smaller room or a unique-sized small room, then buying a bed with storage underneath can be a great way to create a clutter-free bedroom. There are three types of beds that might work for this, including a divan base, an ottoman base, and a zip and link base. If you are interested to know how much storage you would have with these three bases, then you can read Bed Guru’s storage guide here.

Pros of buying a from an online bed shop

Great deals and prices

Shopping from an online bed shop means that customers can browse an entire range of products that they might not always be able to see in a physical store. This means customer can get the best deal and price for their budget a lot more easily!

Bed Guru will deliver straight to your door, take the bed or mattress up to your desired room and even take away your old bed or mattress for free.

Choices, choices, and more choices!

Online bed shops are not limited by a physical store space, and so they can hold a lot more stock, which means more choice for customers. People shopping for beds or mattresses can filters products to suit their needs, such as price, colour, size or material. This is great for people who want to find exactly what they want straight away.

Easy shopping experience

Buying from an online bed shop is very convenient for the customer. There are so many physical bed shops available, and this can make for a very overwhelming shopping experience if you go to a shopping complex with lots of stores. However, shopping from an online bed shop can be an easy experience as you can do it from the comfort of your own home, in your own time, day or night.
