Reasons Why Your Bed Height Actually Matters. When choosing a new bed, it’s easy to prioritise its comfort and design and ignore something as mundane as the height of a bed. However, contrary to popular belief, bed height is actually pretty important. The height of your mattress, in addition to your bed frame, can contribute significantly to the look and even function of your bedroom, not to mention your overall comfort when getting up every morning. Whether your bed resembles the 20 mattresses in Hans Christian Andersen’s The Princess and the Pea, or consists of a measly mattress on the floor, its height can significantly affect you.
Practical. A benefit of being flat packed when delivered allows that you can move the bed into any room of your house with ease, especially for those who have loft spaces. This would have proved impossible with a bulky divan base. It’s also easy to move with you when you change house. A slatted bed base also increases ventilation and airflow underneath your mattress keeping a fresh and hygienic sleeping environment.
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.
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.
Age. Your age is also likely to affect the bed height you’re after. An older person needs a bed that they can easily get in and out of without straining their body. A bed that is too low will be a struggle for joints, whereas a bed that is too high will require jumping onto the mattress each evening. If this applies to you, correlate the bed height to your height to ensure maximum comfort.
