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.
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.
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!
Even More Choice. If your looking for a bed to match your exact colour needs, to perhaps go with that flowery neon wallpaper you put up the other weekend (or maybe your questioning it now?), then you can always opt for an “untreated” finished timber bed. Somewhat more for the hands on approach of course, but by painting it yourself, the colours are endless to what can be achieved. We also offer a vast array of stylish Platform Bed frames and elegant Four Poster Beds. Have you ever considered a glow in the dark bed?
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.
