Whatever the case may be, any person in the world needs a good mattress to get a good night's sleep. What's more, beds don't come in cheap these days (the prices range from $400 to $500 for cheap single beds or $15,000 to $20,000 for the somewhat more expensive, king size kind).

The next step would be picking the right surplus accessories, such as mattress covers and the like. Various mattress covers have different functions, such as: providing additional comfort or protecting the bed from spills, leaks and bed bugs. The price range of mattress covers is about $30 to $200, presumably depending on the product's functionality and quality.
