bboc. Bed Frames. September 01st , 2017.
Often a pine (Softwood) bed frame construction will be stained to show off the natural timber grain, or alternatively, a solid colour can be applied for a completely different appearance such as a modern white or matt black. Choosing a hardwood bed finish allows for a richer appearance, with the oak, cherry or walnut as examples providing a natural attractive deep oscillating grain which can also be matched against other furniture you may have in the bedroom.
Comfort. Possibly the most important justification behind the significance of bed height, is that it affects your comfort and well-being on a daily basis. How easy it is to get in and out of the bed is obviously dependent on said bed’s height. You don’t want to strain your legs having to scramble out of a really low bed. At the same time, you don’t want to have to hurdle your way into bed every night.
Maintenance. Wood is a natural product and requires minimal maintenance and upkeep whilst being very easy to clean. A lacquer and protective finish will always be applied to ensure the timber is sealed. It will take knocks and scrapes well and can always be easily repaired should accidental damage happen.
Feng Shui. According to Feng Shui expert Sally Painter, the height of your bed can determine the quality of your sleep, and therefore your mood, by the levels of chi permitted. Chi is an ancient Chinese term which can be translated as energy. She suggests the chi energy needs to be able to flow around your bed. Too short a bed can block this flow of energy, preventing you from good night’s sleep. Whereas too high a bed can leave you vulnerable to high levels of energy and a restless night. She states ‘the key is to go for a happy medium without blocking the space underneath your bed’, so to avoid getting out of the wrong side of bed in the morning, choose a bed that’s the right height.
Choice. Wooden bed frames come in many different styles varying from the sophisticated, antique to the traditional and contemporary. But the biggest benefit in choice is down to the colour and finish of the wood. Not only is there the type of wood to choose from, between the softwood’s and hardwood’s, but also the colour and finish applied to the that of the wood itself.
