A Wooden Bed can add style, elegance and character to your bedroom due to their distinctive appearance, however, there are many other benefits that you might not have considered until now. All of which are important when choosing the most important piece of furniture in the house.
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.
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.
What Type Of Bed To Choose? When you shop around for a bed, the bed frame is just as important as the mattress. You will find that the most common materials used in manufacturing bed frames are wood and metal. However, if you want to invest more on the mattress than the bed frame, you can opt for metal bed frames instead. Metal bed frames are much more simple, sleek and stylish and they are also cheaper. You can also have a headboard and footboard attached for added style. These bed frames are available in different sizes and they usually come in casters or wheels. For large bed frames, metal slats are included in their construction to provide extra support for the mattress and raised edges to prevent the mattress from moving or sliding off.
Note: When buying a wooden bed frame, it’s always best to choose a “Solid” timber frame as opposed to the much cheaper “Veneer” options you may see. Most often, cheaper alternatives, especially the famous Swedish brand, will use veneer to keep costs down. This might seem attractive in the short term but the veneer is susceptible to peeling and any moisture damage will quickly be evident and flare up.
