Why choose a good quality king size bed?
With so many hours of your life spent in bed, you owe it to yourself to invest in a good quality bed. This means choosing a well-made bed and teaming it with a premium quality mattress. Although sleep experts recommend that you change your mattress every seven years as a minimum, your bed frame should last you much longer than that, so it is worth choosing a high-quality frame that is built to last with classic styling, which you will enjoy having in your home for many years.
A good night’s sleep is invaluable. The impact sleep has on our waking hours is considerable. According to the Sleep Council, 40% of the population in the UK suffers from sleep problems. Having a good quality bed can make a difference to both your physical and mental health. Sleepless nights are exhausting and can take their toll on your ability to concentrate and on your general resilience.
An old, damaged or poor-quality bed can aggravate back conditions, leaving you feeling achy and unrefreshed when you get up in the morning. Chronic fatigue can lead to many issues such as slower reactions, memory lapses and a reduced ability to process information, and has been identified as the cause of some major accidents. This means there is every reason to invest in a good quality king size bed.

A good quality mattress is not enough without the support of a robust divan or bed frame, and similarly, you will not get the most from your luxury bed if you don’t have a good quality mattress to use with it. The bed frame provides essential support for your mattress. A mattress can become permanently damaged if used with a sagging bed frame, and it will not give you the level of support you need.
King size is now the most popular choice of bed in the UK, having replaced the double to reach the top spot. Ideal for couples, it offers additional sleeping space but can still be accommodated in a typical double bedroom. For those sharing a bed, it is important to find a bed and mattress which will be comfortable for both of you. With the extra support they offer, heavy duty mattresses and bases work well for couples.
At Reinforced Beds, we have an extensive selection of beds available, with options to suit all budgets. All the beds we supply, no matter what the type of construction, are designed to cope with bigger weights and with heavy duty use. Whether you are looking for a king size bed for your own home or for commercial use in a hotel or health setting, we can supply a robust piece of furniture to meet your needs.
At Reinforced Beds, you will find a range of heavy-duty king size beds to suit all needs and all budgets, from simple styles for a minimalist setting, such as the Becky Bed to our luxurious four poster Warsaw bed.
Our beds are ideal for heavier people, and anyone who moves around frequently at night and needs additional support for comfort. They are also an excellent choice for older children who prefer extra space and tend to be rougher with furniture, for example, children and teenagers with autism.
In addition to having a natural tendency to be clumsier with beds, children on the autistic spectrum are twice as likely to have sleep problems. This makes it all the more important for them to have a bed that is not just robust, but also comfortable, supportive and spacious.
