How to choose the right bed for your bedroom?
Planning to renovate your bedroom and want to replace the old furniture? Did you know that people spend 1/3 of their lives sleeping?
Choosing the right bed is
much more than a conscious choice. This is an investment you are making for your
quality sleep. If you want to forget the discomfort and pain in the body, you
should go for a well-designed model.
Many designers compare this purchase to choosing a sofa. You can find so many options in the market, differing in their style, design, workmanship and materials.
Where to start? In this article, we at Adara Furniture will focus our attention entirely on the bed – the largest piece of furniture in any bedroom. We will point out the most common mistakes and what to pay attention to in the conceptual project.
What are the most common mistakes when buying a bed?
Bed height is a factor that is often overlooked. What you don’t know is
that your mobility depends on it. You may be in your prime now and have no
problems with your muscles and joints, but for the elderly it is of great
The tall frame would make it easier for you to lie down and get up without straining your back. On the other hand, the short height puts more strain on the knees and joints.
Living in a small apartment can become a struggle for space. This also leads us to the second most common mistake, and that is - not taking storage space into account.
The bed is not just a place to sleep, it can increase the functionality of the room. Many models offer built-in storage - drawers, a lift mechanism, and more.
Style often trumps materials! Many consumers are attracted by non-standard designs or favorable prices and forget that the bed must first of all be of good quality and comfort. Therefore, we advise you not to follow this unhealthy practice.
If you are hesitant about what to choose, do some market research. Don’t forget to familiarize yourself with the thousands of possibilities that custom-made furniture offers you.
You should know that materials like chipboard and MDF are widely used, but their budget prices come from the average quality they offer. In contrast, solid wood bedrooms provide a perfect balance between style and quality. Natural wood is a strong and hard material that can keep its perfect appearance for decades.
Another mistake is buying a new mattress for the old bedroom. This may seem like a cost-effective solution, but it’s unlikely to improve your sleep. The base on which you will place the mattress is very important for your comfort.
If there are defects and damages on it, there is a high probability that they will affect the overall construction. Such a foundation would not provide the necessary support, and subsequently you will have to replace it.
How to choose the right bed?
Shopping for a bed is almost the same as buying clothes. If you think about
it, both have to adjust to your body.
The ideal bedroom should suit you - the size, weight and height of your body, as well as be comfortable enough for a restful sleep.
Experts advise that you should choose the largest bed that you will be able to fit in the bedroom, while leaving enough room to move around. If you currently live alone but are planning a family, it’s a good idea to consider a larger bed than a single.
Before choosing a particular model, we recommend that you answer a few questions:
- What bed do you prefer? – single ones are usually designed for 1 person and are suitable for smaller bedrooms and children’s rooms. A standard double bed is also not a perfect option for 2 people. For a comfortable sleep for couples, it is better to go for a bedroom according to the dimensions of the room.
- How tall are you? – the bed must be at least 10 centimeters longer than the tallest person who will sleep in it. He should not have to bend his legs or have them hang off the frame. If you are about 180 centimeters tall, this means that the required length is at least 200 centimeters.
- How big is the bedroom?– the bed should be proportional to the size of the room, because a small bed would look lost in a large space. On the other hand, a huge bed would make a small room even smaller. The best balance is when the ratio is 1:3 bed to bedroom. But this is not always applicable when the room is narrow.
