NEW YORK, Jan. 23, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Individuals shopping for a bed and mattress know it can be a daunting task, as they must consider comfort, style and budget. Top interior designers understand that it is one of the most personal selections they help their clients make and offer some advice in finding that perfect match.

When it comes to mattress selection, designers certainly agree that personal comfort is key. However, an important consideration that many neglect is the depth of a mattress. "Some mattresses are enormously deep!" advises New York-based designer Eve Robinson. "They can be very heavy and therefore make setting a bed cumbersome. Keep in mind that mattress thicknesses affect the bed height. I like to keep mattress heights around 24-27" above the floor."

"The bigger and higher the bed the smaller the room feels," adds Dallas-based designer John Phifer Marrs. He recommends a "low profile" bed so his clients "don't need a ladder to crawl into bed."

For those considering a lower profile mattress solution, Charles P. Rogers, legendary makers of quality beds and mattresses for almost 160 years, offers their range of platform mattresses.  The four styles – Gramercy, St. Charles, Biltmore and St. Regis – range in firmness but each features quality craftsmanship and is covered by the comfort exchange policy with a 20 year limited warranty so customers can relax and take comfort in their investment.

Choosing the right style bed can be exhausting as there are so many choices.  Palm Beach-based designer suggests that shoppers think about classic design.  "Design trends come and go, but when purchasing a bed, you'll want something that you can live with for years. Select a style that makes a statement without overpowering the room made with quality materials. For example, a four poster bed or an upholstered headboard with simple detailing creates a timeless focal point while the accessories can be changed to refresh the space for years." The simple lines and classic wrought iron of the Cairo or Campaign canopy beds from Charles P. Rogers speak to this advice and provide a dynamic frame for any room.

"Give me drama when selecting a bed, something that anchors the room and gives it a sense of style!" explains Marrs. "I love upholstered headboards especially with nailhead trim or four poster beds; they really make a statement."  The ultra-luxe Wing bed from Charles P. Rogers features this powerful aesthetic with its sumptuous leather headboard and hand applied nail head detailing.

"I prefer headboards and bed frames that are clean-lined and not fussy," continues Robinson. "I prefer beds that show off their legs rather than beds with skirts. A wood frame around a fabric headboard tends to dress it up a bit." The Newhouse platform bed features a contemporary look with its supple yet refined leather headboard and Mahogany rails.

With options ranging from specially crafted platform and trundle beds to timeless iron and brass frames, Charles P. Rogers offers value and quality as well as a relaxing sales process for both homeowners and accredited designers. Charles P. Rogers' beds are shipped direct all over the world and they are helping consumers sleep well one night at a time.  To purchase or for additional information, designers please visit www.charlesprogers.com
