Small double beds buying guide
There are a number of important things you should consider when choosing a bed frame. Most people start off with choosing the design that they like. This is very important as any bed must firstly fit into the décor of the chosen bedroom. It should also be remembered that the décor will usually change more frequently than you change the bed. Therefore try and choose a colour and style that will fit with various styles and décor.
Another important factor is the size of the bed. A small double bed is only 4 ft. wide therefore it is not very suitable for a couple, but it can be ideal for one person who likes a bit more space in bed. There are of course times when a 4 ft. bed is the only option, such as, the bedroom is not big enough to accommodate a larger bed. The height of the bed can also be very important. If the bed is too high off the ground it may be difficult for the person to get into and out of bed. This can especially be true if the person is elderly or disabled.
Choosing the style and look of the bed frame can be the most enjoyable part of choosing a bed. There are now a very large range including wooden, metal, or leather bed frames and within each category there are hundreds of choices by hundreds of manufacturers.
Wooden frames are generally the most common choice. These are available with plain or carved headboards, upholstered headboards or a mixture of both. Metal bed frames are now making a comeback as they are becoming much more ornate. A metal bed frame is usually lighter than a wooden frame which is easier to move around, making them ideal for a children’s bedroom. Because they are somewhat lighter they are very much easier to move around for cleaning underneath.
When buying a new bed the cost is one of the most important factors for everyone. There are very cheap beds on the market costing less than £100. These are usually very basic and ideal for a guest bedroom where it will not have very much use. If the bed is to be used every night it is important to buy a bed that will last a number of years.
It must also be remembered, what is the purpose of the bed? Primarily it is to give support and comfort to ensure a good night’s sleep. This is much more important than the style of the bed. The style is obviously very important as this is the part that is on show. It is the part of the bed that makes a bedroom look stunning and something to be proud of.
In conclusion before buying a 4 ft. double bed the following factors should be taken into account. Initially it must be decided who the bed for, what size of room the bed is to be situated. How much money have you got available to spend? What style of bed is most suited to you?
