New bed - what should I choose?

Which bed you choose depends on what you want from your bed and whether you have special problems or conditions that make your needs a little different from so many others. The typical things that Danes suffer from are back pain, headaches, pregnancy-related discomfort or generally poor sleep quality. Others, again, "just" want a good, sturdy bed at a good price.

Need a new bed? Consider these three types of beds

If you're looking for a new bed, you'll have to choose between these three types, all of which have their advantages and disadvantages. Click to read more.

  • Continental bed

    A larger bed with three layers. Provides a lot of relief and support.

  • Elevation bed

    Perfect bed for those who like to read or watch TV in bed

Box mattress - a robust and affordable bed

  • The price of a box mattress is 30 - 40 % cheaper than elevation beds and continental beds
  • It does not take up much space
  • The box mattress is quite light and therefore easy to move when cleaning or moving

Disadvantages of a box mattress

  • You risk choosing a too cheap box mattress that does not provide enough support and thus a bad sleeping experience
  • A box mattress is not as high as a continental bed, and therefore cannot provide the same relief
  • Many of the cheapest box mattresses are only available in medium firmness, which is not optimal if you weigh over 85 kg.

Krone box mattress

Cheap box mattress - this box mattress is available for only 6.000 kr.

This bed is a cheap bed at the dealer Sengetid.dk. The box mattress is a good choice if you want a good standard bed that does not cost a fortune, but is still good Danish quality. The bed has two layers of springs, which provide a really good comfort than just one layer. The top layer is pocket springs with 5 comfort zones. The bottom layer is Bonell springs, which give the bed a good stability, so it does not sink in the middle. You can choose a firm or medium top mattress, depending on your weight. This is also a big plus for this box mattress.The top mattress comes with a washable cover. For the price you get a complete bed with optional top mattress, legs and delivery to the curb.

The bed is available in these sizes(cm): 80 x 200 - 90 x 200 - 120 x 200 - 140 x 200 -180 x 200

Continental bed - a bed with three layers of mattresses and good support

The continental bed design originated in the USA, but has gradually become a popular choice of bed in Denmark too. The bed is made up of three layers: a box mattress at the bottom, then a spring mattress and a top mattress on top. With the three layers you get a bed that is slightly higher than the bed height we know from the box mattress. This gives you a feeling of being "up out of bed" instead of "out of bed". The continental bed looks great in the bedroom because of its construction. Especially if you choose a model with a bed base. When in doubt about which bed can provide the best support for you, you should definitely take a closer look at the continental bed. On average, a continental bed costs around €20,000, but you can often find it on offer at a significantly lower price at Better Nights.

Elevating beds are available in many price ranges and qualities. However, if you are considering an elevation bed, it is important to keep in mind that just because a bed has elevation, it is not necessarily the best bed for you. Unfortunately, there are many bad elevation beds out there where the mattress is not necessarily suitable for different positions. What determines the price of an elevation bed is the top mattress. It should be made to be in different levels. Next, the motor and the size of the bed and other details also have a big impact on the price.

Advantages of an elevation bed

  • Raised headboard can relieve headaches, snoring & colds
  • Ideal for reading or watching TV in bed
  • May relieve discomfort for pregnant women suffering from watery legs and heartburn

Disadvantages of an elevation bed

  • The mortar takes up space, so you can't store things under the bed
  • The bed is heavy & provides increased power consumption
  • A good elevation bed is often an expensive investment
