Welcome to Bed Buying Advice, the independent, impartial bed and mattress buying guide with professional advice that will help you choose the right bed or mattress for your needs.

The aim of this site is simple, to help you choose the correct bed, mattress or bedframe by demystifying the jargon and technologies associated with the bed and bedding industry.

To accomplish this we have provided a number of articles providing help and advice on common subjects which consumers tend to become confused about. We hope this information assists you in your purchase and that you find a bed, mattress, bedframe or headboard that you are happy with, one which assists you with your sleep for years to come.

One thing we can't stress enough is that the most important things you can do when purchasing a bed is to try them. Everyone has their own preference to both comfort and support and the best way to find your preference is to find a local, reputable bed retailer, have a chat with them, have a lie down on the beds and test them for at least 10 minutes. This way regardless of the beds advertised benefits you will be able to tell if it feels right for you.
