I don't know about you guys, but after a long and tiring day, literally the *only* thing I look forward to is resting on my comfy bed. Let's be real: It may not be obvious, but our beds have probably been one of our most prized possessions since like, forever. LOL! It's where we get to chill, relax, and be ourselves. For some, it may even be the spot where they spend most of their day. And at a time where work from home and online classes are considered part of the new normal, I think we can all agree that having a comfortable bed to come home to is so, so important. 

If you're thinking of switching things up a bit in your room, finding a proper bed that'll fit your preference and lifestyle might just be a good place to start. In an exclusive interview, Cosmopolitan Philippines reached out to interior designer and contractor Monica Banks of Style & Build for her thoughts on what it takes to score the *perfect* bed for your room.

What are some of the different bed design ideas available in the Philippines and how much do they cost?

According to Monica, "The most common bed designs used in a Filipino home are: wooden bed frames, metal bed frames, upholstered bed frames, bunk beds, and loft-type beds. Wood and metal bed frames are the most affordable and prices usually range from P5,000 to P20,000 for a queen-sized bed. [As for] bunk beds and loft-type beds, [they] are commonly seen in shared bedrooms among families or dormmates. Prices [for these] range from P10,000 to P20,000, depending on the material and design. Upholstered bed frames and headboards are generally more expensive compared to the other types as it uses materials like fabric, foam, and other decorative elements. Upholstered headboards [are not only *aesthetic*] but [they] also add extra comfort and back support. Prices [for upholsterered headboards] usually range from P20,000 to P50,000, while the more high-end options have prices above P100,000 (for a queen-sized bed)."

Here are some factors to consider when choosing a bed design.

Think about the size of your bedroom.

Monica advised, "The size of your bedroom should be your top consideration when buying a new bed. Make sure that the bed would be proportionate to the room and the number of users. If your bedroom is also a multifunctional space (in a sense that you also use it for studying, working, and/or gaming), then there should still be enough space left to accommodate those activities." Trust us, you don't wanna stress over an overcrowded bedroom!

Visit different stores and suppliers.

In case you need to hear it, you gotta shop wisely! It helps to prepare a budget and actually stick to it. Friendly reminder: Don't just buy on impulse. Make sure to do your research and check out all kinds of stores and suppliers. "Visiting multiple stores and suppliers allows you to compare and try out different designs, prices, and quality," Monica said.

If you don't live alone, consider the preferences of the other people living in your space.

"If you share a room with a partner, sibling, or roommate, make sure to choose a bed with them," Monica added. "Share your insights on what type [of bed] you both prefer and [discuss] your budget range." Don't make rash decisions and consult other people first! If you're not confident about your selection, you can always ask a professional, too. :) 

Invest in multifunctional pieces.

Pro tip from Monica: "If you don't have enough space for your belongings or if your room is smaller than average, then consider using Ottoman or Murphy beds. These are the best solutions if you want to increase your storage capacity."
