The 12 Best Places to Shop For a New Bed
I don’t know about you, but I feel like the biggest transition into adulthood came for me when I finally stopped letting my mattress float on a rogue metal bed frame and got myself a real bed. Apart from your sofa, your bed is the piece of furniture you’ll probably spend the most money on in your home — and the most time. Studies show we spend one-third of our lifetimes sleeping (or attempting to do so), so having a quality place to lay your head down at the end of the day is a must. But where to begin shopping for one? From affordable favorites like Walmart and Wayfair to luxury retailers like West Elm and Pottery Barn, the options can seem endless — which is why we rounded up our favorite picks to make things a bit easier on you. Whether your style is boho, Mid-century, or anything in between, read on for the 12 best places to buy a bed — whatever your budget.
