bboc. Bed Frames. September 28th , 2017.
Getting into, and out of, bed is basically a mini workout. Squats are all the rage right now, and instead of paying a huge fee to take a legs-based fitness class, I strengthen mine everyday doing something I always do: Squatting down to get in bed.
Lifespan. Another benefit of having a wooden bed is that it can be changed over the years to give it a second, third or even fourth life. With sanding, staining and painting options (if needed) you can always refurbish your bed to develop with your tastes. In theory, all you would need to do (providing the bed frame is cared for properly) is replace your mattress after the recommended amount of years. Whereas with divan bases it is highly advised you change your bed base and mattress at the same time.
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.
Environmentally Friendly. Wood is the most widely available renewable source on earth. Growing in abundance, forests provide an endless source of timber that when sustainably harvested will continue on forever. Most pine imported to the UK is usually FSC or PEFC certified to ensure it’s from sustainable sources which are replanted when harvested. But if you’re not sure, you should always check.
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.
