Finding the Perfect Bed at Bed Bath & Beyond

A Guide to Choosing the Ideal Mattress for Your Best Night’s Sleep

As I entered the sprawling Bed Bath & Beyond store, I was immediately overwhelmed by the vast selection of beds. With so many styles, sizes, and features to consider, how would I ever choose the perfect bed for a great night’s sleep? As a restless sleeper prone to tossing and turning, I knew finding the right mattress was key to finally getting some quality shut-eye. I decided to explore all of the options at Bed Bath & Beyond to discover the best bed for my needs.

An Oasis of Mattresses for Every Kind of Sleeper

Stepping into the bedding department was like entering an oasis of mattresses. Rows upon rows of beds in all sizes greeted me, from twin and full to queen and king. I saw traditional innerspring mattresses along with more modern memory foam, adjustable air, and hybrid beds. Prices ranged from budget-friendly under $500 to luxurious over $5,000 for premium materials and features. I noticed kid-sized toddler and youth beds too for children’s rooms. With this vast selection, Bed Bath & Beyond has clearly got you covered whether you prefer firm or soft, basic or fully-loaded.

As I browsed the collections, some top-rated beds immediately caught my eye. Brands like Sealy, Serta, and Beautyrest are known for quality and comfort. I also spotted Bed Bath & Beyond’s own exclusive Therapedic mattress brand designed for exceptional back support. For smart sleep, adjustable bases from brands like Tempur-Pedic allow you to customize firmness and elevation. I was thrilled to see so many eco-friendly beds made from organic cotton, bamboo, soybean foam, and other sustainable materials as well.

Finding the Perfect Size for Your Bedroom

One of the most important decisions to make is what size bed best fits your space while allowing room to walk around. Bed Bath & Beyond has all standard mattress sizes from twin to California king. Twin and full size beds work well for kids’ rooms or guest bedrooms. Queen size around 60″ wide are ideal for cozy couples. For luxurious stretching out room, I consider a king size bed around 76″ wide the way to go. I also noticed some specialty sizes like twin XL which offer more length, and split options allow for adjusting firmness preferences.

Matching your mattress size to your existing bed frame or headboard is key. I saw a huge selection of bed frames, headboards, and foundation platforms to perfectly coordinate. Metal frames on wheels provide height and mobility, while upholstered headboards make a stylish statement. Plush tufted headboards create a glamorous hotel vibe. For small spaces, some beds have storage drawers built right into the base. With this range of accessories, you can find the ideal bed frame to complement your mattress.

Adjustable Smart Beds for High-Tech Sleep Comfort

As someone who loves gadgets, the adjustable smart beds immediately piqued my interest. With the press of a button, you can raise your head and feet to customize your position for reading, watching TV, or just relieving back pain. Some even allow you to control and monitor your sleeping habits through innovative apps.

Brands like SleepNumber and Tempur-Pedic offer adjustable air beds with dual-sided firmness controls. This would allow me and my partner to customize our own side. Others likeBeautyrest and Sealy have power bases that quietly raise the head and feet to any position. For the ultimate high-tech experience, beds from Reverie and Yaasa come with optional sleep tracking technology to monitor rest patterns. With these innovative adjustable bases, you can upgrade your bed into a smart sleep sanctuary.

Choosing Between Innerspring, Memory Foam, and Hybrid Styles

When it comes to the mattress itself, there are three main options – traditional innerspring, sinking memory foam, or hybrid. Innerspring mattresses contain internal coils for bounce and breathability. Leading brands Serta, Beautyrest, and Sealy use advanced coil technologies like pocketed springs to reduce motion transfer between sleep partners. I noticed some budget-friendly coil mattresses under $300 like Beautyrest, but higher end brands can cost over $2,000 for luxurious cushioning and support.

Memory foam beds provide contouring comfort by molding to your body shape. These felt amazing to sit and lie on in the store. Brands like Tempur-Pedic and Therapedic use proprietary foams that cushion pressure points while keeping you cool. I saw both all-foam and foam/coil hybrid options starting around $600, with premium memory foams running over $2,500 for the ultimate floating sensation.

For the best of both worlds, hybrid mattresses combine coils and memory materials. This gives bounce, breathability, contouring comfort and great edge support all in one bed. Top picks like the Beautyrest Black and Sealy Posturepedic Hybrid mattresses start around $1,000 for a queen size. For those not sure between foam and springs, the hybrid option seems like an ideal mix.

Finding the Perfect Firmness Level for Your Needs

Mattress firmness preference is highly personal based on your sleep position and body type. As a side sleeper, the salesperson recommended I look for a medium soft to medium firmness rated around 4-6 on the 1-10 scale. This softness cushions shoulder and hip pressure points. Back and stomach sleepers often prefer medium firm to firm around 6-8 for proper spinal alignment. Adjustable air beds allow personalizing each side’s firmness.

I tested out beds ranging from plush to firm and realized the medium support felt best. The salesperson also said your ideal mattress softness often differs between brands, so don’t assume a “firm” Bed X will be equal to a “firm” Bed Y. The only way to know for sure is to lie down and try the mattress yourself. Look for that perfect balance of comfort and support.

Choosing Between Classic and Contemporary Styles

Beyond comfort and support, I also want a stylish bed to tie my whole bedroom together. At Bed Bath & Beyond, I found everything from traditional tufted designs to sleek modern platforms. Brands like Sealy and Serta offer many classic flared, pillowtop, and cushioned beds with elegant detailing like piping and charm tufts. For a vintage look, metal beds have decorative bronze or brass finishes. Upholstered headboards come in soothing neutrals and traditional fabrics like linen. These styles blend seamlessly into formal bedrooms.

For contemporary cool, I loved the low-profile modern platform beds in materials like faux leather or wood. Some had storage drawers or shelves built into the base. The Malouf Weekender Modern Washed Wood Platform Bed caught my eye with its Natural Maple finish and understated low-slung design. For a pop of color, vibrant headboards liven up the room. This range ensures you can match your bed’s style to your interior decor.

Finding Quality Materials for Healthy, Eco-Friendly Sleep

Since we spend a third of our lives in bed, I wanted to make sure my mattress is made from healthy, sustainable materials. At Bed Bath & Beyond, I discovered several eco-friendly bed options for guilt-free sleeping. Brands like Nest Bedding and DreamCloud use materials like organic cotton, Talalay latex from rubber trees, and plant-based memory foams derived from castor beans. These renewable sources are respirartory friendly and cruelty-free.

I also noticed certifications like OEKO-TEX and CertiPUR-US that ensure plush mattresses are free from harmful chemicals. Soy-based memory foam, wool batting, and other natural materials promote breathability and moisture wicking. Bamboo, designed to resist odors naturally, also appears in cover fabrics and pillow fills. With these eco-options, I can rest easy knowing my bed provides a non-toxic sanctuary.

Convenient Ordering, Delivery, and Setup Services

Once I finally decide on the ideal mattress, Bed Bath & Beyond makes purchasing and setup smooth. I can order my bed conveniently online for delivery directly to my door in as little as 3-5 business days. For large purchases over $999, I may qualify for special financing options to split costs over time interest-free. This makes upgrading to that dream mattress more affordable.

When my bed arrives, the delivery team will even set it up in my bedroom and remove all packaging materials. For an extra fee, I can also add their expert assembly service to have them install my new bed frame and position the mattress just right. These perks alleviate the headache of wresting a bulky mattress into place myself.

Sleep Easy with 90-Day Trial Period and Guarantee

One thing giving me peace of mind is Bed Bath & Beyond’s sleep trial and guarantee. I have 90 nights to test out my mattress and make sure it’s the perfect fit. If it doesn’t live up to expectations, I can exchange or return for a full refund. They even provide free pick-up of the bed from my home.

All mattresses also come with a 10-year limited warranty against manufacturer defects. If any sagging, cracking or other defect emerges, the company will repair or replace your mattress. This ensures I’m investing in years of quality sleep ahead. Between the sleep trial and warranty, I can upgrade my bed risk-free.

Transforming My Bedroom into a Relaxing Retreat

Armed with tips, I’m ready to choose the ideal mattress, bed frame, and accessories to create my sleep sanctuary. I plan to settle on a queen or king size hybrid bed with adjustable base for high-tech comfort. A tufted upholstered headboard will give it a touch of classic style. Breathable natural materials like cotton and eucalyptus will provide healthy rest.
