There can be no bedroom without a bed. But deciding what size bed to get can be confusing at times. Depending on the bedroom, your stage of life, and your stature, choosing the right size bed can make or break a bedroom. This guide will help you decide!
Starting with the basics, what are the different sizes of mattresses?
Bed size will be determined not only by the mattress but by the bed as whole; the frame, box spring, and mattress. The size is determined mainly by the design of the bed frame.
For instance, our queen Moondance Bed measures 62.5" wide and 84.5" long while our queen Monarch Sleigh Bed measures 64" wide and 92" long. When considering the size of the bed, it's important to measure your space and ensure that it will fit into your room.
Considering the size of your room is, of course, an important part of choosing the right size mattress and bed. For a very small room, it wouldn't generally be recommended to get a queen or king size bed. However, bed size is personal and designing a bedroom can often come down to working around the bed size.
If you want a larger bed but it takes up more space in your room, there are options to maximize your space by adding in under-bed storage and narrow end tables as opposed to wide nightstands. This way you can get your larger bed while still having enough storage space.
After personal preference, there are some important things to consider when it comes to space planning and choosing the right size bed:
Ask yourself all of these questions and have as much information as possible when you come in to buy a bed. This way our design consultants can sketch out your bedroom and help you to determine which size bed will work.
Whether you're working with a design consultant or doing it on your own, it's important to take pictures and measurements of your room.
Once you've considered the options and asked yourself the important questions, the best course of action is to go in store and test beds out for yourself.
Physically trying out the bed is the only way to get a feel for which size fits you and your lifestyle best. Our designers will work with you and work around the size of the bed, ensuring that your bedroom will be both comfortable and functional.
