    Beds - how much have you spent

    Might seem like a silly thread, but i am just about to spend a small fortune on a decent bed.

    Have spent in the past as well, but not for a long time and well in need of a decent bed now.

    So off we go to the bed shop we go, 40-50% off to two of the best brands Sealy and Sleepmaker....

    lie down on the cheapest one, a Sealy at $1000, normally $1800.00 ... nice bed, but not posturepedic

    Then we try the $ 2000.00 one, normally $4000.00 ... yeah ok some difference, but not sure if its a $ 1000 difference

    Then on to the $ 3000 ... normally $ 5400 !!!! .. wtf who pays $5400 for a bed !!!

    But its starting to feel very nice ....



    So is it all worth it, has anyone spent that much on a bed, and if so what were the tangible benefits on top of a good nights sleep.

    My brother spent 2000 on a bed... I spent 1000... mine is still the most comfortable bed I ever lay on 13 years later... no sag... perfect absorbness... no wonder I sleep solid every night without waking...

    Forget the price... and just find a dreamy feeling bed...

    I spent about AUS$8K on my last bed....but that wasn't in LoS...that was for my last new house in NZ

    I probably really should buy a good bed here...I'm just loathe to pick up yet more possessions

    That must have been hand-made at that price? Did you sleep well on it?

    Do you sleep just as well now... or miss your bed?

    Ahhh sleep! A subject so near and dear to my heart I just got a chubby.

    Spare no expense on this. I started sleeping like a log after I got a good bed. A slight back and neck problem I had went away as well. It affects everything from your energy levels to your mood the next day.

    There are some good stuff out there too. Not even kings used to have access to the sort of luxuries we have today.

    And with that thought, I'm gonna grab a book and hit the royal hay. Let us know what you end up with.

    Night, fuckers.

    Funny we just picked up s new bed..asked for the hardest one they had 1000 bucks back to 499 and love it. Sales guy said on special no one ever buys them this hard in Australia.55555
    Have had pillow top all singing all dancing like sleeping on a cloud type but if you have issues with bad backs etc may in the long run not help.
    I can sleep on a thin Thai sleeping mat quite happily or the floor but would prefer not the floor so take my likes with a grain of salt.555555

    I brought a expensive top of the rang bed in China. It was about 3k aust. It was nice to sleep on and maybe in oz close to 8k or more.
    I also brought a few hard cheaper ones. When I split with the wife she kept the good one. At first the cheap one was hard to sleep on but after a week or two you get use to it. For me i wouldn't waist my money on the expensive ones.

    As you spend 1/3 of your day there , seems like a false economy not buying the best mattress you can afford , I've got a King Size bed , but like the Superkings that most hotels I've stayed in seem to have

    Recently bought a 5' Bed Butler Classic mattress in UK for just over 300, pleased with it so far and would not want to spend much more; it sits on a solid wood base. Bought a 5' pocket spring with a mixed foam top for THB9500 and a steel frame for THB3000, quite pleased with them but it seems that the 6' super king is the norm because most bedding is sold in that size, having to take spare sets from UK. The benefit of the steel bed is that it cannot be eaten by bugs and I can put storage boxes underneath.
    Good advice, your body needs to sleep on a new mattress over a couple of weeks for both to get "run in" 555.
