bboc. Bed Frames. September 18th , 2017.
Bed height. Bed height should correlate with your height and adjust accordingly if you’re fairly short or tall. Most mattresses are 16 to 24 inches from the floor, to judge which end of the spectrum your bed should be, sit at the edge of the bed. If your feet are flat against the floor and your knees are in a straight line with the hips, your bed is the right height. If your knees are above the hips, the bed is too low and if your feet can’t reach the floor comfortably, the bed is too high.
The lack of storage can actually be a blessing. It`s always been hard for me to part with things I don`t really need -- think, my high school prom dress, old magazines, and makeup I`ll never use -- and when I had a high bed I just shoved everything beyond my bedskirt. Without any under-the-bed space to hide these unnecessary items, I`ve had to confront, and beat, my hoarder tendencies.
Depth of Mattress. Depending on your chosen bed frame, your mattress should comply. If you’re after an extra thick mattress for comfort, opt for a shorter bed frame. Vice versa if you fancy a tall bed frame with lots of storage space underneath, a thinner mattress is best idea.
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.
Aesthetics. Finally, bed height is important because it can affect the overall look of your bedroom. For example, a lower bed can make a room look more spacious than a higher bed. However, if you’ve got a particularly tall room with high ceilings, a taller bed would appear more appropriate with the space. As well as plenty of storage, a tall bed offers a sense of refinement. While a short bed is literally more grounded and creates a laid back and minimalist impression.
