Reasons Why Your Bed Height Actually Matters. When choosing a new bed, it’s easy to prioritise its comfort and design and ignore something as mundane as the height of a bed. However, contrary to popular belief, bed height is actually pretty important. The height of your mattress, in addition to your bed frame, can contribute significantly to the look and even function of your bedroom, not to mention your overall comfort when getting up every morning. Whether your bed resembles the 20 mattresses in Hans Christian Andersen’s The Princess and the Pea, or consists of a measly mattress on the floor, its height can significantly affect you.
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.
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.
Practical. A benefit of being flat packed when delivered allows that you can move the bed into any room of your house with ease, especially for those who have loft spaces. This would have proved impossible with a bulky divan base. It’s also easy to move with you when you change house. A slatted bed base also increases ventilation and airflow underneath your mattress keeping a fresh and hygienic sleeping environment.
The lack of storage can actually be a blessing. It`s always been hard for me to part with things I don`t really need -- think, my high school prom dress, old magazines, and makeup I`ll never use -- and when I had a high bed I just shoved everything beyond my bedskirt. Without any under-the-bed space to hide these unnecessary items, I`ve had to confront, and beat, my hoarder tendencies.
