Are you looking for a new bed? We are happy to help you properly prepare for this purchase. When purchasing a new bed, there are a lot of things that you should pay attention to. Perhaps the most important is choosing the right size. You will not be the first to buy a bed that does not fit in the bedroom. In addition, it is also nice that a possible bed partner also has enough space to sleep comfortably.

Beds come in all shapes and sizes, of course. Before you start looking for a new bed, determine how much space you have in the bedroom to accommodate the bed. If this is known, you can decide for yourself how much space you want to fill with a bed. For many Dutch people, the length of the bed is a very important factor. For example, the average length of a bed in the Netherlands is higher than in most neighboring countries. In the Netherlands, for example, you often see enough bed lengths of 220 cm. Furthermore, the size of the bed is a free choice. If you would like a lot of space between you and your partner, you should take a very wide bed. If you sleep alone, a very large bed may be a completely unnecessary luxury.

A bed is seen as a double bed from 160 cm wide. Of course, double beds are available in many different sizes. The most common sizes in the Netherlands are 160 x 200 cm and 180 x 200 cm.

There is generally talk of a bed as a doubter, if it has a width of 120 or 140 cm. 120 cm actually falls more under the single beds, but theoretically, you can lie on it with 2 people. This is also the reason that this size is called a doubter. You can just lie on it with two people, but you don’t have much extra space.
