How much free space does one need 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? One will need about 75-90 cm extra space either side of the bed as well as at its foot, with the more space corresponding to more relaxed arrangements. In other words, for a 170 cm wide bed, you would need a 320 cm wide floor space. If this is too much, you can save space by pushing the bed against the wall on one side, especially if the bed is only used by one person. This creates a cozy corner, and would reduce the space needed by a 170 cm wide bed to about 245 cm in width. Creating an arrangement with the bed under sloping ceilings is also ideal as these spaces would be hard to use, but the height of the room should not be so low that it leads to regular annoyance or head injuries when getting into or out of the bed. Opting for a sofa bed can also be a space-saving option.

From the history of furniture: Old-Fashioned Bedsteads Part 1

"Upholders forbidden to mix scalded feathers and flocks with dry pulled feathers and clear down, in beds, bolsters, and pillows; and also to use horse-hair for down, neat' hair, deer's hair, and goat's hair, which is wrought in lime-fats, in quilts, mattesses, and cushions, because by the heat of man's body the savour and taste is so abominable and contagious, that many of the King's subjects thereby become destroyed. They were to be stuffed with clear wool or clear flocks alone, one manner of stuff. For their own use however, and not for sale, persons might make, or do to be made, any of the aforesaid corrupt and unlawful wares."

These regulations had been called out by the increas" ing use of mixed materials in the beds. In the Paston Letters," which are so interesting, is given the furnish ing of the bedroom of Sir John Fastolf, in the year 1459. He was a rich man, and presumably could have had anything he wanted, yet, as will be seen, his mattresses were not both of pure feathers. "In primis. I fedderbedde. Item I donge of fyne blewe.

Questions and answers

How to use color theory when choosing a bed?

The color scheme in one's room can be a result of necessity, 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 simply means that the colors in your home should be coordinated in some way, so that it looks like a unit, and not just a random collection of elements. This can be achieved by using a color wheel, and choosing colors that are either quite close to each other (as colors that are only different in lightness or intensity always go together, but small differences in the actual tone can also be fine), or quite far, for example on different halves of the wheel (complementary colors like red and green) or on different thirds (for example, cyan-orange-purple). Other color combinations are likely be somewhat jarring just based on how our eyes and brains process color. Associations with and emotions connected to colors are equally important, and there is no shortage of guides 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 very different in different cultures or just for different people. 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 stability, calmness and even sadness. Green is undoubtedly the color of nature, and is said to evoke safety, luck and envy (though in other cultures envy is yellow instead). White can be associated with peacefulness, cleanliness, innocence and emptiness, and, for example, mourning in India. Red is considered to be the color of friendship, energy, leadership, desire and revenge - a very wide range of feelings. But it is clear that in nature, it signals danger or importance, so you probably need to put it next to a calm color to allow the eye to rest. These associations are so varied that these guides seem to boil down to just one piece of advice: pause and think what the color means for you.

What is the best way to measure the space to fit a bed in?

Measure both the width and the depth of the floor space where you'd like to put a bed. The most accurate way is to use a measuring tape. Hold the start down at the edge of the area, and let it run to the opposite edge. Make sure the tape is parallel to the side of the space, or else you get a value larger than the reality. If the distance is larger than what you can stretch to with your arms, ask a friend to help, or divide what you need to measure up 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 measured on the floor or wall, and start a new measurement. If you want to avoid drawing on your floor, try putting down a pointy object like a pair of scissors there instead. You should avoid dead places where the piece of furniture won't be able to go like decorative strips. Also it may be necessary to take the height of the space and the item into account wherever the ceiling is uneven like spaces under the stairs.

Our philosophy

We want to allow every one of us to live comfortably even if they only own a small space they call home. We search the Internet for thousands of desks, cabinets, shelves, shoe cabinets, beds, tables, armchairs and more by size, to find just the right one to go under the stairs to finally get a dressing corner, or to find that extra long bed that is still narrow enough to squeeze through the bedroom door. From the kitchen to the living room, don't live around furniture - get furniture that lives with you.

Have you heard? We also operate in other countries. You can look for 65 inch wide beds in Canada, 170 cm wide beds in Ireland, 65 inch wide beds in the US or 170 cm wide beds in the UK.
