Even if some webshops allow searching for beds by size, checking many webshops at the same time needs a different solution. Furniture Ferret to the rescue!

How should I place the bed in my room?
The bed is the main furniture in a bedroom, but one needs some space around it to access it. But how much exactly? You will want to leave about 30-36 in room on both sides of the bed as well as at the foot, with the more space corresponding to more relaxed arrangements. This means that for a 85 in wide bed, you need a 145 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 creates a cozy corner, and would reduce the space needed by a 85 in wide bed to about 115 in in width. Equally, it is possible not to have any extra space at the foot of the bed - you can put it flush against the wall, or you can place a cabinet there to save space and further enhance the feeling of a safe, enclosed space. Opting for a sofa bed can also be a space-saving option.

What is the best way to 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 easiest 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 not diagonal, 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 assist, or divide what you need to measure up into multiple parts. This can be done 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 reposition the tape to complete the measurement. If you want to avoid drawing on your floor, try putting down a pointy object like a pair of scissors there instead. Don't forget to avoid dead places where the piece of furniture won't be able to go like decorative strips. Also don't forget to measure the height of the space wherever the ceiling is uneven like in loft rooms.

From the history of furniture: Old-Fashioned Bedsteads Part 2

This will is dated June 2, 1617.

"" The ioyned standinge bedstead mentioned was not probably as handsome a one as is shown in Figure 205, which belongs to about this period, and which is of the type known as " stump " from the fact that it has no foot -board. This bedstead is of oak, carved, with pan elled head-board, and beside it is a joined table and stool. The pewter bell-candlesticks are also of this period, and the room is furnished as closely as pos sible as it would have been in the first quarter of the seventeenth century.

There are not many such beds as these already men tioned, and our interest centres on the beds which found their way to this country, some of which still survive, although the very earliest have gone the way of their owners. I find there were four styles of beds in use, say from 1660 to 1830, — the high four-post bed, the

"" field bed, the low four-post bed, and the French bed. In addition are shown a settee bed, stretcher, or day couch, as it was called, and a Dutch bed-chair, because rare specimens of these are still occasionally to be met with.

There was also the slawbank or built-in bed, which was a feature in so many of the houses built by the early Dutch colonists who settled about New York, New Jersey, up the Hudson in Albany, Schenectady, etc. I do not include these, because they were taken out of the houses when the bed was relegated to a room of its own and no longer was part of the furniture in kitchen and best room.

How to choose the best color for a bed?

If you can choose between different colors for a bed that fits your space and budget, it is helpful to know how different colors work together. The two things to consider for everything color is balance and associations. Balance means that the colors should be coordinated in some way, so that the space 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 intensity of lightness do go together, but small differences in the actual tone or hue can also be fine), or quite far, like on opposite sides of the wheel (complementary colors like blue and yellow). 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 also important to keep in mind. It is quite probable that these emotions are cultural and learnt, which means that they can be very 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 associated with productivity, but also calmness, stability and even sadness. Green is clearly the color of nature, and is considered to be associated with safety, luck and envy (though in other cultures this latter is yellow). White can be connected to peacefulness, innocence, cleanliness and emptiness, and, for example, mourning in India. Red is regarded as the color of friendship, willpower, leadership, desire and anger, which is a very wide range of emotions. But it is clear that in nature, it signals danger or importance, so it should be put next to a calm color to allow the eye to rest. These emotions point in so many different directions that these guidelines seem to boil down to just this: pause and see what the color means for you.

We aim to allow every one of us to live comfortably even if they only own a small area they call home. We scour the Internet for thousands of desks, cabinets, shelves, shoe cabinets, beds, tables, sofas and so on by size, to find just the right one for you to go in that unused corner and turn it into a practical office, or to find that extra long bed that is still narrow enough to squeeze through the bedroom door. From the hall to the bedroom, don't live around furniture - choose furniture that lives with you.
