bboc. Bed Frames. September 14th , 2017.
Often a pine (Softwood) bed frame construction will be stained to show off the natural timber grain, or alternatively, a solid colour can be applied for a completely different appearance such as a modern white or matt black. Choosing a hardwood bed finish allows for a richer appearance, with the oak, cherry or walnut as examples providing a natural attractive deep oscillating grain which can also be matched against other furniture you may have in the bedroom.
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!
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.
No Dust Bunnies. In lots of cases, a storage bed frame eliminates some of the need for the most difficult kinds of cleaning in a bedroom area. Those without a storage bed frame are familiar with the many ways that stuff can accumulate underneath a bed. It’s not just dust, either—lots of items get temporarily “lost” under the bed over time, which leads to yet another great reason for having a storage bed frame that goes all the way down to the floor. If you have a weak knee, do yourself a favor and look at storage bed frame designs that will keep unwanted debris out from under the bed and help out if “spring cleaning” isn’t really your forte.
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.
