What bedroom you're buying it for?

If you are buying a bed for your spare bedroom, your budget doesn't have to be big, as it won't be used on a regular basis. At the same time, a single mattress is something that you might want to spend money on. It will still be on your budget.

A single divan bed with a head would be a good addition to the bedroom, and it will add style as well as comfort to your bedroom.

If your single bed or mattress is for your main bedroom, you can get a pocket spring mattress with a filling that will give you a good feel. For comfort memory, foam or latex material would be a good option. You may also consider wool and cotton mattresses. You may buy a fabric bed or divan base that will go with your mattress.
