bboc. Bed Frames. August 25th , 2017.
High beds are much riskier. If I`m going to fall out of bed (which, fingers crossed, never happens) I`d much rather do so from a low height. I already have a habit of injuring myself doing everyday things (like sleeping), so anything I can do to minimize that risk is a plus in my book.
However! If you live with a partner who is gifted with a height that unfortunately is far taller than yours, or that falls a tad short, then you have a couple options. A tall bed (with a handy step that blends nicely in the bedroom décor) can give you a sense of opulence and regality whereas a short bed can make you feel grounded. The Japanese have been fans of low beds for centuries, in fact they’ve gone as far as creating the ‘Shikibuton’, a traditional bed that almost becomes the floor, it’s meant to connect the spirit to nature, but be careful if you have a bad back!
Durability. Metal bed frames are made to last for a long period of time and survive wear and tear. Sadly, most metal bed frames these days have iron content that can corrode easily. Nevertheless, these do have anti-corrosive coating to delay rust from appearing and if you do treat the metal bed frame with a new coating, it will still look brand new.
For children however, bed height and ease of getting in or out doesn’t seem to be the priority. If, like a lot of children, your child is adamant to get a bunk bed, do not fret. Bunk beds are an easy way of appeasing your child and saving space. The ideal height of a bunk bed is dependent on the floor to ceiling space you have available. It seems obvious, but if you’ve got quite low ceilings, you’ll want a low bunk bed to ensure your kids don’t hit their heads during every wake up call. The average height to leave between the top of their mattress and ceiling should be roughly 36 inches, but again if your child’s a little taller, there should be more room. For more information on bunk bed dimensions, it’s worth taking a look at House Plans Helper.
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.
