bboc. Bed Frames. September 10th , 2017.
Appearance. Of course, the attractive look of the bed is often the big decider! With a huge variety of different design options, there’s always a wooden bed frame to suit. Why not go all out and treat yourself like royalty with a Four Poster Bed which is now becoming an increasingly popular choice regardless of room size?
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.

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.
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.
