The bed is one of the most important elements of furniture because it directly affects the quality of sleep and regeneration of the body. Read the architect’s tips on choosing a bed.
The bed should be firm and stable, and therefore guarantee to be long-lasting. Wooden, metal, or refined plywood frames, which can be seen in the finish or upholstered with fabric, and other materials, must be made in a way to form a rigid structure, which can not move or make irritating noises during movement. Pay particular attention to the strength when purchasing children’s beds, because their playfulness can create stronger and more concentrated loads.
Bed Base and Mattress
A sturdy bed should have a bed base that will ensure the correct position of the spine, muscle relaxation, and quality sleep. They are most frequently performed of slats and can be classic, flexible, reinforced, with automatic adjustment, etc. When choosing the bed base, further consultation with the experts employed in specialized centers for the sale of bed bases and mattresses.
A quality mattress is an essential element, which together with the base ensures quality rest. Ergonomically designed mattresses are the best choice for children and adults.
The chosen mattress should be at least 20 cm longer than your height and the width will be conditioned by the number of persons as well as the physical build of people who sleep on it. The width of the mattress for one person is 90 – 100 cm and for children’s beds recommended width is 80 cm. Mattresses for two persons can be of different sizes but typically are in the range from 140 cm to 200 cm. Custom-sized mattresses can also be produced.
In the last place is the design of the bed itself. The attractive appearance of the bed should be one of the reasons for the selection, but certainly not the only one.
Nightstands and Under-The-Bed Storage Ideas
Ensure a minimum of 45 cm of communication space along both sides of the bed, and if it is not possible to accommodate the desired nightstand use a bed with a broader framework. Lack of storage can be solved with the selection of a bed with a box for linen. The selection of materials and colors should be compatible with the existing interior for the final atmosphere.
The bed is a very important element for furnishing the living space, so devote special attention to choosing your bed to ensure a healthy sleep.
