Comfort. Possibly the most important justification behind the significance of bed height, is that it affects your comfort and well-being on a daily basis. How easy it is to get in and out of the bed is obviously dependent on said bed’s height. You don’t want to strain your legs having to scramble out of a really low bed. At the same time, you don’t want to have to hurdle your way into bed every night.
However! If you live with a partner who is gifted with a height that unfortunately is far taller than yours, or that falls a tad short, then you have a couple options. A tall bed (with a handy step that blends nicely in the bedroom décor) can give you a sense of opulence and regality whereas a short bed can make you feel grounded. The Japanese have been fans of low beds for centuries, in fact they’ve gone as far as creating the ‘Shikibuton’, a traditional bed that almost becomes the floor, it’s meant to connect the spirit to nature, but be careful if you have a bad back!
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. For more information on bunk bed dimensions, it’s worth taking a look at House Plans Helper.
Some renters or homeowners who have chosen a storage bed frame will never go back to a regular “board and beam” type setup. Here are some of the top reasons people enjoy having a more permanent storage frame for a bed.
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.
