We are giving you the power to create your bed, go beyond the final changes, and tailor it to your needs. You can create a bed that is perfect for you, keeping in mind how it will be used and what every aspect of the design should look like. Creating a bed can be an intimidating task, especially when you are not sure where to start. From space considerations to the design and layout, a bed is a complicated piece of furniture with many dimensions. Here are a few ways to get you started.
1. Custom size mattress
The custom size mattress is one of the easiest ways to start. Knowing the dimensions of your room and considering how you are going to use the bed will give you a starting point for your design. If you have a smaller space and want to create an intimate setting with a softer feeling, it might be worthwhile to consider a low-profile box spring or low-profile foundation.
2. Choose a good bed frame material
A bed frame is the first thing people notice when they enter your bedroom. A nice wooden frame gives it a more classic look, while metal can be more modern looking. Wood is more solid and provides the bed with a sense of permanence, whereas metal tends to be sleeker and more unobtrusive. Choosing a good bed frame is a wonderful way to make the bed a focal point and ensure it is not just hidden in the corner. There are so many assorted styles and varieties of wood and metal that it is wise to make a slightly more contemporary or trendy selection.
3. Memory Foam
Memory foam mattresses and toppers often referred to as memory foam, are all the rage now. Not only do they provide an elevated level of comfort, but they also have several health benefits. For example, the material can keep your body more relaxed than traditional mattress materials. Memory foam can also mold your body by gently contouring and accommodating your body’s natural curves and providing added support. This is an excellent feature if you want a softer mattress but still want the support of a traditional bed frame.
4. Pillow Top
Pillow top mattresses are becoming increasingly popular. These mattresses are made with more padding, which makes them extremely comfortable to sleep on and thicker and heavier than traditional mattresses. Pillow tops tend to have more padding around the edges and help reduce pressure points as you rest. This can help keep you from waking up in the middle of the night or tossing and turning into uncomfortable positions throughout the night, leading to a better night’s sleep.
Sheets can be a straightforward way to change the look of your bed. For example, if you want to create a bed that looks elegant and expensive, consider using plain cotton sheets or have a slight design. If you want something more modern, consider using fitted sheets contoured for your mattress and use solid colors with patterns or just solid colors. You could also choose a patterned sheet with fun colors for a more playful appearance.
Comforters are great for covering up your bed, but they can also be highly decorative. If you want a more traditional look, then consider using a solid color that goes well with the rest of your room. For example, you could use an ivory comforter or a pastel pink or purple color to create a more feminine look. On the other hand, if you want something contemporary and stylish, then consider using a patterned comforter that complements the space around it.
