If you are currently on a decorating splurge and you are seeking new furniture for your bedroom, then now is the perfect time to re-think the size of your bed.
Humans spend about 1/3 of their time in their bed, re-energizing for the next day. This is why it is crucial that you have the correct sized bed for your lifestyle.
Rethinking Your Current Bed Size
There are many reasons why you might be rethinking your current bed size.
Below is a list of the most common problems in the bedroom, and the relation to how the solution might help you as well.
One of the most common complaints between spouses or couples is that they both hog the bed.
If your mate is a sheet stealer and dominates most of the bed during the night, then it is definitely time for a larger bed.
Not only does this cause a lack of sleep, but it can also cause problems in the relationship.
A larger bed gives both people the added room that they need. If your room is somewhat small and you are worried about fitting a larger bed in the room, look into a platform bed.
This is a bed that is not as tall as a standard bed, and is raised slightly off of the ground. It gives an immediate addition to the walking space in the room.
If you tend to sleep "spread eagle", which is a term used to describe people who have to have a lot of space when sleeping, then you are in dire need of a larger bed.
Studies have proven that people who try a larger bed for one night have experienced a much more peaceful sleep because they subconsciously are aware that they have more room to move.
If you tend to have a better night's sleep when you are in a hotel room that has a larger bed than you are accustomed to, then you have already experienced this phenomenon.
Some people only need a few main pieces of furniture. If this is the case for you, and you have noticed that your room is too large and cold, then why not get a larger bed?
Many people would love to have the extra room for a larger bed, so take advantage of the space that you have. It will instantly make your bedroom feel more cozy and inviting.
Luckily, as a bed consumer, you are not limited to choosing just one style. There are a variety of new bed styles on the market that will flatter any room décor.
While queen and king size beds are still the most popular sellers, there are also the newbie's on the market:
"Olympic queens and California Kings"
The Olympic queen is slightly larger than the standard queen, but not quite as large as the king. If you are positive that you want a bed that is larger than a queen, but you are unsure if you have enough space for a king, opt for an Olympic queen.
It has almost the same width as a king, but less length.
If you are somewhat tall, and you get annoyed when your feet dangle off the end of the bed, then a California king would be perfect for you. They are somewhat smaller in width than a regular king, 4 inches narrower to be exact.
However, they are four inches longer. The only downside to Olympic queens and California kings is that they are somewhat harder to find in showrooms and furniture shops.
But, in most cases, they can be specially ordered for you. As the years progress, they will be much easier to find and more affordable.
