The size of the bed: what it is and how it is best to choose
It is very difficult to imagine a dwelling without such aa binding piece of furniture, like a bed. If you want, you can do without bookshelves, a closet, a chest of drawers, even without a table, but without sleep it is difficult to live even one day. Therefore, the size of the bed and its design has long been interested in those who are going to build a new home or decided to make a general renovation of furniture in the house. Special interest to this issue is shown by craftsmen, who make everything themselves in accordance with their preferences.
Why are standard sizes of beds so important?
In principle, any furniture for sleep can be dividedon two main parts: a frame and a soft filler (mattress). The first lifts the sleeper to the required height, and the second provides comfort during the rest. As a rule, they are made by different manufacturers. The typical size of the bed greatly increases the number of options for choosing a mattress and allows you to make a replacement if necessary. In addition, it makes it possible to adapt the sleeping place to a new location or to another person. For example, you can buy a softer mattress or frame, which provides better protection from drafts. For the manufacturer, the standard size of the bed serves as a guarantee that the products will fit the vast majority of customers. For furniture customers, it usually means an acceptable final price. This is due to the fact that the purchase of a non-standard mattress for the same bed will cost much more than usual, and it will not be so easy to find it.
Most often the length of the berth is 190see a few less common models in size of 200 cm. This is the most optimal size of the bed in order to fit comfortably on it with the pillow. Perhaps in the future they will increase, as the average growth of people on the planet is gradually increasing. As for the width, it directly depends on how many people will be on this furniture to sleep, two or one. In addition, this size of the bed depends on the manufacturer and on the standards of a country. Therefore, a single bed in width can be from 90 to 140 cm. By the way, in the CIS, a mattress whose width is 120-140 cm is considered one-and-a-half. This somewhat strange term means that one person will be quite comfortable on this bed, and if desired, two can also fit in. The width of double beds usually varies between 160-180 cm, sometimes reaching a value of 200 cm. Its length remains the same: 190-200 cm.If the sizes of beds for adults are allit is extremely clear, the dimensions of the children are very different and directly depend on the age of the child. Most often the size of the bunk bed is 170-200 cm in length and 70-90 cm in width. When planning the interior of the children's room, it should be understood that these are the dimensions of the sleeping place, and to them it is worth adding the distance that the staircase will take, and possibly the built-in wardrobe. As for the standard height of beds with a mattress, it (except for bunk furniture) is in the range of 40-50 cm. This is the most optimal size for a healthy person. But the height of the headboard can be any - there are no standards.
