How can I find beds by size?
Finding beds in search engines on the Internet by measurements is not easy as search engines are best at finding text only. Also, when searching for beds to fit a given space, somewhat shallower items are also suitable. Even if some outlets allow searching for beds by size, checking many outlets at the same time needs a different solution. This is where Furniture Ferret comes handy. Our systems scour many websites on the web and list thousands of products so you can buy the one that fits perfectly.

From the history of furniture: The history of beds

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 to choose the best color for a bed?

If you have the option to choose between different colors for a bed that fits your space, it is useful to know how different colors work together. The two things to consider for everything color is balance and associations. Balance simply means that the colors in one's room should ideally 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 do go together, but slight variations in hue can also be fine), or quite far, for example on opposite sides of the wheel (giving you 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 understand color. Associations with and emotions connected to colors are also important to keep in mind, and there are many 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 quite different in different cultures or just for different people. The associations are even often contradictory, which makes it even more difficult to use them as a guide. Blue is often associated with 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 this latter is yellow). Yellow is always a shouty color and can mean brightness, warmth, attention and energy (likely evoking the sun), except when it is dark and becomes brown, when it is said to be relaxing and comfortable. Red is considered to be the color of friendship, energy, leadership, desire and revenge, which is a very wide range of emotions. But it is clear that in nature, it signals danger and 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 guidelines seem to boil down to just this: pause and think what the color means for you.

How should I place a bed in a room?

The bed is the main furniture in a bedroom, but one needs extra space around it to use it. But how much? You will need about 30-36 in extra room on both sides of the bed as well as at the foot, with the more space corresponding to more relaxed set-ups. This means that for a 68 in wide bed, you would need a 128 in wide floor space. However, 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 can create a cozy corner, and decreases the space needed by a 68 in wide bed to 98 in in width. Creating an arrangement with the bed under sloping ceilings is also ideal as often these spaces would be hard to utilise, but the height of the space should not be so low that it leads to regular annoyance or head injuries. Choosing a foldable bed can also be a space-saving option.

Our philosophy

We want every one of us to live comfortably even if they only have a small space they call home. We scour 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 bed that is still narrow enough to squeeze through the door. From the hall to the bathroom, don't live around furniture - buy furniture that lives with you.

Have you heard? We also operate in other countries. You can look for 175 cm wide beds in Australia, 68 inch wide beds in the US, 175 cm wide beds in Ireland or 175 cm wide beds in the UK.
