How much free space should I leave around the bed?
The focal point of a bedroom is the bed, but one needs some space around it to be able to access it. But how much exactly? You will need about 75-90 cm room either side of the bed as well as at the foot, with the more space for more relaxed arrangements. In other words, for a 140 cm wide bed, you need a 290 cm wide floor space. If this is too much, you can save space by placing the bed against the wall on one side, especially if the bed is only used by one person. This creates a cozy corner, and reduces the space needed by a 140 cm wide bed to 215 cm in width. In addition to this, it is possible to skip the extra room at the foot of the bed - you can put it flush against the wall, or you can place shelves there to save space and add to the feeling of a safe, enclosed space. Opting for a sofa bed can also be a space-saving option.

How to choose the best color for a bed?
The color scheme in one's space can be a bit accidental, but it has considerable effect on the feelings you get from your home. The two main things to consider for everything color is balance and associations. Balance means that the colors in your home should ideally be coordinated in some way, so that it looks like a unit, and not just a random collection of elements. Usual techniques to achieve this are considering a color wheel, and choosing colors that are either quite close to each other (as colors that are only different in intensity of lightness always go together, but small differences in tone or hue can also be fine), or relatively far, like on opposite sides of the wheel (giving you complementary colors like blue and yellow) or on different thirds (for example, red-green-blue). Associations with and emotions connected to colors are also important to keep in mind, and there are many lists for these from those by 19th-century Impressionist painters to modern interior design guides. In all likelihood these associations are cultural and learnt, which means that they can be quite different in different cultures or just for different individuals. The associations are even often contradictory, making it even more difficult to use them as a guide. Blue is often connected to productivity, but also calmness, stability and even sadness. Green is undoubtedly the color of nature, and is said to be associated with safety, luck and envy (though in other cultures this latter is yellow). Yellow is always a shouty color and can evoke warmth, brightness, attention and energy (likely because of the sun), except when it is dark and becomes brown, when it is said to be relaxing and comfortable. Red is regarded as the color of friendship, energy, leadership, desire and anger, which is a very wide range of emotions. But it is clear that in nature, it signals danger and importance, so it should be put next to a calm color to allow the eye to rest. These associations point in so many different directions that these guides all seem to boil down to just one piece of advice: pause and think what the color means for you.

From the history of furniture: The history of beds

The idea of entirely covering the wood-work with material died out soon after the end of Queen Anne's reign, and many fine examples of 18th-century beds are in existence.

Fig. 4 is typical of the Chippendale period.

4. Mahogany Four-poster Bedstead. The posts are fluted for part of their height and rest upon cabriole legs. Chippendale Period. About Middle of 18th Century.

Beds, however, were not exclusively of the four-poster type. The form illustrated in Fig. 2 was continued in the 18th century, the cabriole leg being generally used in the Queen Anne period, and having a projecting portion surmounting the front legs somewhat similar in design to an inverted cabriole leg minus the foot. The back was generally shaped with a series of round, hollow and ogee motifs of the usual Queen Anne character, the edge being moulded and the centre space either veneered or covered with material. Fig. 5 is a further example of an 18th century bed, and is of the Chinese-Chippendale style. The tester is in the form of a Chinese pagoda, the corner ribs of which are decorated with acanthus leafage. The bed is lacquered, a treatment which was still to a certain extent continued from the Queen Anne period.

5. Four-poster Bed in the Chinese Chippendale style, decorated with lacquer. Chippendale Period. About 1760.

Towards the end of the century the beds were designed on a lighter scale, especially in the treatment of the posts and the tester. Fig. 6 is typical of the latter half of the 18th century. The shaped cornice moulding is decorated with the small pear-drop pendants usually associated with Hepplewhite. The back is covered with material.

Questions and answers

How can I search for beds by size?

Finding beds in search engines on the Internet by measurements is difficult as search engines are best at finding text only. Also, when searching for beds to fit a given space, somewhat shallower items would also suit. Even if some outlets allow searching for beds by measurements, searching many shops at the same time needs a different solution. This is where Furniture Ferret shines. We scour many outlets on the Internet and index thousands of items so you are able to find the one that fits perfectly.

How do I measure the space to fit a bed in?

Measure the width and the depth of the area where you'd like to put a bed. The most accurate way is to use a measuring tape. Hold the start of the tape down at the edge of the area, and let it run to the other edge. Make sure the tape is parallel to the side of the space, or else you would overestimate the available space. If the distance is larger than what you can stretch to, ask a friend for help, or divide the distance into multiple parts. You can do this by either holding the tape down partway through and continuing running it while letting the first end go, or by marking how far you have measured on the floor or wall, and start a new measurement. If you want to avoid drawing on the floor, you can position a pointy object like a pencil there instead. You should avoid dead places where the piece of furniture won't go like skirting boards. Also it may be necessary to take the height of the space and the item into account wherever the ceiling is low like in loft rooms.

Our philosophy

We aim to allow everyone to live comfortably even if they only own a small space they call home. We search the Internet for thousands of desks, cabinets, shelves, storage units, beds, tables, armchairs and more by size, to find just the right piece to go next to the bed and turn the room into a practical office, or to find that extra long sofa that is still narrow enough to squeeze through the door. From the hall to the bedroom, don't live around furniture - choose furniture that lives with you.

Have you heard? We also operate in other countries. You can look for 140 cm wide beds in the UK, 55 inch wide beds in the US, 55 inch wide beds in Canada or 140 cm wide beds in Ireland.
