How much free space do you need around the bed?
The bed is the main furniture in a bedroom, but you need extra space around it to be able to access it. But how much? One will need about 75-90 cm room either side of the bed as well as at its foot, with the more space corresponding to more luxurious arrangements. This means that for a 160 cm wide bed, you need a 310 cm wide floor space. At the same time, 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 160 cm wide bed to 235 cm in width. Creating an arrangement with the bed under lower ceilings is also ideal as often these spaces would be impossible to use, but the height of the ceiling should not be so low that it leads to regular annoyance or head injuries. Opting for a foldable bed can also be a space-saving option.

What is the best way to measure the space to fit a bed in?
Measure both the width and the depth of the space where you'd like to put a bed. The easiest 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 not diagonal, or else you would overestimate the available space. If the distance is larger than what you can stretch to, ask a friend to assist, or split the distance up into multiple parts. You can do this by either holding the tape down halfway 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 the floor, try putting down a pointy object like a pair of scissors there. Don't forget to avoid dead places where the piece of furniture won't go like electric sockets. Also it may be necessary to take the height of the space and the item into account wherever the ceiling is low.

From the history of furniture: The history of beds

The History of Beds

Four-poster beds were in all probability introduced to this country soon after the Norman conquest, although they were by no means in general use, the majority of beds being probably formed by alcoves in the wall.

None of the early beds, however, have survived, and almost the only remains of the Gothic period consist of some few posts. Of the Elizabethan period some specimens are still in existence, and an example is given in Fig. 1. In this early form of bed the front posts were separated from the actual bed, and supported a canopy or tester of extraordinary weight. The posts were usually of bulbous form and contained the typical cup and cover detail which was generally carved with nullings and acanthus leaf work. They were of very heavy and ponderous construction, and decorated with a preponderance of carving; in some cases with inlay. The tester was, as a rule, panelled.

1. Oak Four-poster Bed. The posts are nulled and the lower turned portion is of the cup and cover type. Elizabethan Period. Second half of 16th Century.

Contemporaneously with the four-poster was the trundle bed, a low structure probably used by the servant, and so made that it could be pushed out of sight when not required for use.

Another form of bedstead of a simpler type is shown in Fig. 2. This was probably made for the middle classes, and was similar in form to those in use at the present time, except that the foot consisted of two short upright posts joined by a rail. The bedding was generally supported by ropes interlaced through holes in the bed rails.

Questions and answers

How can one find beds using their size?

Finding beds in search engines on the web by measurements is not easy as search engines are best at finding words only. Also, when searching for beds to fit a given space, slightly narrower items would also suit. Even if some webshops allow searching for beds by size, searching many websites at the same time needs a different solution. This is where Furniture Ferret shines. Our systems scour many websites and index thousands of products so you can buy the one that fits perfectly.

How can I find the least expensive 220 cm long beds on Furniture Ferret?

On the search pages one can choose to order the results by their price (lowest or highest first), or relevance. Click on the button just above the first item, after "Order by", to change how the results are ordered. Sorting by relevance shows the bed at the top that contains most of the search terms, while sorting by price shows the cheapest or most expensive bed first. Change the order to "Price: low to high" to see the cheapest 220 cm long beds available on Furniture Ferret.

Our philosophy

We want to allow every one of us to live comfortably even if they only own a small area they call home. We search the Internet for thousands of desks, cabinets, bookcases, shoe cabinets, beds, tables, armchairs and more by size, to find just the right piece to go in that unused corner and turn it into a dressing corner, 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 - get furniture that lives with you.

Did you know? We are also present in many other countries. You can look for 85 inch long beds in Canada, 85 inch long beds in the US, 220 cm long beds in Australia or 220 cm long beds in Ireland.
