As a place where we spend at least a third of our lives, the bedroom is undoubtedly one of the most important rooms in the house. Most bedrooms contain cupboards, chests of drawers, and other optional storage furniture, but every bedroom needs a bed! So, choosing the perfect bed is a critical decision to make when designing your ideal bedroom.
In the UK, housing space is at a premium, and developers build many new homes to modest dimensions to fit more homes into a limited area. As such, in many UK homes, there will not always be room for a king-size bed along with other necessary bedroom furniture. But this does not mean you can't arrange your bedroom in a way that is comfortable, relaxing, and with sufficient storage.
In the UK, there are six standard bed widths, ranging from 2'6" (small single) to 6'0" (super king). However, although not all beds are the same length, there are only two standard bed lengths. These are 6'3" for all beds measuring up to 4'6" wide and 6'6" for super king and king size beds (5'0" x 6'3").
Let’s face it we only tend to go out and buy a new bed when it literally comes to the point of the bed actually falling apart.
Have you ever wondered why your bed is raised off the ground and not just a mattress on the floor? Even though there are still some who prefer just a mattress on the floor the modern bed tends to be raised off it and this begs the question as to why?
We spend over a 1/3 of our lives in bed so when it comes to buying a mattress and a bed, size really does matter. Be it Super King Size, King Size, Double or Single everybody has their own preference.
A mind boggling 80% of UK adults experience back pain. Around 4 in 5 adults (80 per cent) of adults experience some form of lower back pain at some point in their lifetime.
