Maybe It’s Time to Replace Your Sofa

Aside from beds, sofas are also among the top comfort providers in every home. They’re also typically considered as big ticket purchases, which is why for most households, sofas should last a long time. But, like other furniture that gets a lot of use over time, you should know when to swap your old couch for a new one.

So, how do you know if it’s the right time to get a new sofa? Here are the top signs:

1. The materials are already falling apart.

If your couch is already full of tears and patches, accompanied with some foam spilling out and spring peeking, you should definitely toss it to the curb and get a new one. Especially if it doesn’t have an inner frame that you can still salvage and have reupholstered, sofas that are literally falling apart should already be replaced.

2. The frame is starting to warp.

If your couch is already losing its original shape, then it’s high time you should get a replacement sofa. A misshapen couch wouldn’t have the right support and could break any time. This makes it perfectly unsafe for your family, so replacing it with a new one is important.

3. It doesn’t fit the new home you’re moving into.

If you’re moving to a smaller property like a condo or apartment, bulky sofas may not literally fit into the small space. Especially if your new home is in a high rise building, maneuvering a large object in its utility areas may be impossible. Getting a new one could be a lot easier option in cases like this.

4. Deep cleaning won’t thoroughly clean it anymore.

Through the years, your sofa may experience different ways of use. It may cause stains and dirts that are hard to clean and remove, not to mention accumulated dust and possible molding. If this is the case, maybe it’s better if you just replace your old couch with a new one. It could even help lessen allergic reactions and illnesses in your home.

Available in a wide array of shapes, sizes, and designs, there are tons of options when it comes to pillows.

When you say pillow, the rectangular ones are the first thing that will come to mind for a lot of people. As most of us only use pillows for sleeping, the standard bed pillows are the most commonplace for the general populace. Standard size measures 20×30″ but variations are also available that can go up to 20×72″.

How to Find Out if a Mattress is Right for You

Being in the home furnishing industry for nearly half a decade already, we know just how challenging it is to find the right mattress. While there are tons of options available, it doesn’t necessarily make the choosing process easier and can even be a bit confusing at times.

This is why when asked, we always say that personal comfort should be the very thing you look for when shopping for a mattress. Aside from your budget, your personal comfort should be the deciding factor in making the call in which mattress you should get. Why? It’s pretty simple: if you’re not comfortable enough in your bed, you will find it difficult to fall asleep, rendering the mattress useful in the end.

As mattresses are not exactly cheap, your comfort should really be taken into great consideration when purchasing one. Since you’re already spending a good amount of hard earned money to provide you some comfort at the end of the day, wouldn’t it be just ideal for you to find an actually comfortable mattress to put your cash in?

To make sure that you’ll find the right mattress for you, here are some some tips:

  • Actually lie down on the mattress to get it’s feel for at least 10 minutes. This way, your body can get a good idea in how the mattress feels for longer periods of time.
  • Make sure to lie down in your common sleeping position. This can give you a good heads up whether you’ll feel strain on your pressure points or not.
  • Try as many mattresses as you can. Salem Beds, especially, offer a wide range of features and designs, so trying out just a few may cause you to miss out on other options available.
  • Never hesitate to ask your Salem Bed promodiser questions.

Extra tip, especially if you plan to purchase a Salem bed through our website: try our mattresses in one of our dealers or outlets first. It may seem counter-intuitive, but, then again, since you’re spending a good amount of cash in a mattress, it’s best if you are familiar with the item you’re going to purchase online. Besides, there are also a number of perks from purchasing through the website, like free delivery for orders P5k and up (for Metro Manila only), so you can still opt to test out a product in store and purchase online.

How to find out if a mattress is right for you? You’ll feel it once you’ve tried it. If you’ve found yourself getting cozy on top of the bed and ready to fall asleep despite the harsh lights of the furniture store, then take that model home.

Sky & Sea: Kiddie Beds for Shared Rooms

sea and sky

As your family grow, it is just common to find yourself needing to sleep train your children. Moving them to a big kid bed is an essential part of teaching them how to do things on their own and giving them a taste of individuality. This also gives parents the chance to bond with each other once again, after having their little one the be all of their lives.

If your family ever find itself in such a situation, investing on a bed that your little one can grow up in would be a practical move. Instead of buying a new kid bed every year or so to accommodate their growth spurt, opting for a regular bed is a more ideal option. With a quality regular sized bed, you don’t have to worry about your kid’s feet dangling at the end of their beds at night for at least up to 7 years.

For your little one, you can choose anything from the wide range of Salem Beds’ products. However, a mattress alone will still leave you fretting for a base and additional accessories, so an all in one bed is always our top suggestion for little kids’ bedrooms. In this case, we often recommend the Sky and Sea beds.

Sky Bed

Mixing comfort and functionality, the Sky Bed is a great choice for growing kids. Not only is its plush surface ideal for sleeping, but it also comes with a built in bed frame with storage. These drawers are ideal for storing clothes and toys, making them the best options for your little one’s bedroom.

Sea Bed

If you want to up the ante and ensure a complete bed set for your little one, the Sea Bed is an excellent Salem Bed option. This model ups the Sky Bed’s offerings, as it comes with a matching headboard. A no-fuzz solution for busy growing homes, the Sky Bed can definitely solve your little one’s bedding challenges in a jiffy.

For growing families, being practical is a priority alongside the children’s wellness and safety. Comfort, however, shouldn’t be sacrificed, so why opt for anything less than a high quality Salem Bed? With our years of experience, you can definitely rely on us for your little ones’ good night sleep.

Multi-functional Bed Bases for Growing Homes

salem beds salem products

For many homeowners, their abodes are continuous work in progress. Especially for starter families, buying furnishing their spaces completely in one go is just not financially wise and possible. This is why many opt for affordable options first and just replace them as needed along the way.

Bed bases and frames are some of the most easily neglected accessories for the bedroom. Most starter homes are fine with having their mattress on the floor for the first few months of living independently. The mattress is usually a bigger priority, so unless an opportunity comes up, bed bases tend to take the back seat for furniture shopping.

The thing with bed bases, though, is that they are also great parts of your bedrooms. Aside from elevating the mattress to let you maneuver around your space easier, they can also help you get more out of your floor area.

Take our Osmond and Orlando bed bases for example. These two products offer a lot more than just support and extra height for your mattress, making them some of the best purchases for starter homes.

OSMOND salem beds

Osmond

The Osmond is Salem Bed’s trundle bed base, designed to hold two mattresses. It is much like the Nite & Day trundle bed except for the fact that you can choose which mattress to go with your bed. For Nite & Day, you get regular innerspring mattresses, but for the Osmond, you can opt for a foam mattress on top instead.

ORLANDO salem beds

Orlando

For those who want their beds to be a bit more functional, the Orlando bed base is a great choice. Designed with two drawers built in to the frame, this Salem Bed product doubles as bed support and storage. Perfect for those who have limited living space, the Orlando is a must-have for most growing homes.

If you’re ready to transition your starter home into something more permanent but not yet prepared for some big investments, the Osmond and Orlando are some of the best options to give you more bang for your buck. You can also discover more Salem Beds options at www.Salem.ph.
