bboc. Bed Frames. September 16th , 2017.
Choice. Wooden bed frames come in many different styles varying from the sophisticated, antique to the traditional and contemporary. But the biggest benefit in choice is down to the colour and finish of the wood. Not only is there the type of wood to choose from, between the softwood’s and hardwood’s, but also the colour and finish applied to the that of the wood itself.
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.
Unique Customisation. Many beds that you will come across whilst on the search will be set sizes and designs (as you would expect). But what about those situations where “standard” doesn’t work? That difficult attic space, or to fit a custom size mattress? Customising a bed frame’s dimensions and appearance cannot be easier than with a wooden bed frame. Get Laid Beds are a company that provide just that service and allow you to chop and change any of the wooden beds in their range. Low or high, wide or thin, no headboard or an extra tall one, you can customise to meet your exact requirements.
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.
Feng Shui. According to Feng Shui expert Sally Painter, the height of your bed can determine the quality of your sleep, and therefore your mood, by the levels of chi permitted. Chi is an ancient Chinese term which can be translated as energy. She suggests the chi energy needs to be able to flow around your bed. Too short a bed can block this flow of energy, preventing you from good night’s sleep. Whereas too high a bed can leave you vulnerable to high levels of energy and a restless night. She states ‘the key is to go for a happy medium without blocking the space underneath your bed’, so to avoid getting out of the wrong side of bed in the morning, choose a bed that’s the right height.
