bboc. Bed Frames Wallpaper. August 24th , 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!
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.
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.
