How to Choose the Perfect Bed For Your Room

Published on: February 6, 2019 | by: Rachel

Because we spend a good deal of our lives sleeping, our bed is perhaps the most important piece of furniture in our homes.

The material, size, and design of the bed frame, as well as the quality of the mattress, are just a few of the factors to consider when you’re on the market for a new bed.

Size

When deciding on the size of your bed, take into account the size of your room. If your bedroom has heaps of room, why not opt for a king size bed?

If your room is a little more compact, go for a queen or double.

Experts say that an ideal bed for two people should be wide enough for both to be able to lay down and keep their arms under their heads without touching each other’s elbows. Try it out tonight!

Plus, the bed should be at least 10 centimeters longer than the tallest partner’s height. Talking of height, it’s generally recommended to look for something that’s just slightly higher than your bedside tables.

Don’t forget to measure the area where you’ll put the bed before buying!

And make sure you think about the other pieces of furniture in the room, allowing enough space to move freely around.

Materials

When it comes to beds, there’s a huge range of materials and styles to check out. The most common ones are metal and wood, some covered with leather or textile (upholstered).

A wooden bed frame is durable and versatile, being suitable for both a modern or classic style. There are numerous options available, depending on the shade, texture, and type of wood used.

A bed frame that’s fully or partially upholstered in leather (natural or organic) or textile is great if you love a modern style.

You’ll find a variety of colours to choose from, ranging from bright and bold to the more classic beige and black shades. A bed with a leather frame adds some extra sophistication and style!

Metal is always fashionable when it comes to bed frames. A metal bed frame with special patterns and ornaments would be perfect for a vintage-looking bedroom, while one with straight, simple lines would look awesome in a minimalist room.

You also need to pay close attention to the frame’s ability to support the weight of the mattress, pillows, bedding, and, most importantly, the people using the bed.

So, choose a top-notch frame and remember that its main purpose is to support a certain weight while providing structure and style!

Picking out a bed for your room is, undoubtedly, a big decision. But by following this simple guide it won’t be a stressful one!
