Most people think that when a bed is too big, it is because someone made it too big. The truth is that everyone is different, and the best thing for our bed will be based on our needs and wants. Many people have the same idea as us – a monthly budget and needs. So, what is the big deal about a custom bed? It is a great way to couple our budgets with those needed features to perfect our beds. This article discusses when it is time to switch to a custom bed like a Wyoming king bed.
1. When our current bed does not fit well.
If we are used to sleeping in a certain size bed and decide to get a new one, it is better not to buy a standard-sized mattress from the store. Although all of our mattresses are available in sizes ranging from 20×60 up to 60×200, we recommend getting one that fits the exact measurements of our old beds. Otherwise, if we change beds, we may discover that the new mattress does not feel good against our bodies or is uncomfortable. This could even cause back pain or other health issues. In addition to this, we might find ourselves having to move furniture around just so both beds can fit into a small space. We always recommend getting something that feels good and comfortable no matter where we sleep.
2. We want more than two feet of headroom.
There is nothing more uncomfortable than sitting in an uncomfortable chair or lying down on an uncomfortable couch. Therefore, we need extra room under the covers to rest comfortably. This means we will have to sacrifice some square footage to maximize the comfortability factor. If our current frames measure 80 inches long x 52 inches wide x 43 inches high, buying additional headroom will require going larger (90-100 inches long x 55-62 inches wide x 44-50 inches tall) or smaller. Larger frames offer more support and headroom but at a higher price tag. Smaller ones have less space but are easier on our back. Go with a custom model like the Wyoming king bed if we have specific ideas about how much space we need.
3. We need built-in storage.
Beds without storage drawers or cabinets tend to look odd. It is important to keep everything organized so our belongings will not be lost in plain sight. A storage system makes it easy to keep all our things protected and easily accessible while giving off a sleek, clean finish. Storage options vary depending on our style preferences. Some models feature drawers, others open niches and others include hidden compartments. Whether we choose a nightstand or dresser-style model, finding a design that works with our decor is easy when we know what features we would appreciate.
4. Our bedroom already looks busy.
A custom model provides plenty of design possibilities. Consider using wood veneer panels, paint colors, drawer pulls, light fixtures, artwork, etc. There are also ready-made designs designed to resemble various styles such as contemporary, traditional, rustic, and modern. All of these options add character to any room. The choice is ours. Just remember to match them with the other elements in our rooms.
5. We want to customize a pre-existing bedframe.
The beauty of a custom frame is its ability to transform the appearance of an existing piece. The most common ways to do this are adding custom drapery panels, wall hangings, or window treatments. But there are many other great ways for customizing a frame too. For example, we can select material(s) like leather, velvet, satin, damask, silk, burlap, linen, cotton, polyester, suede, vinyl, metal, jute, bamboo, and wool. Or we can go with a special color scheme such as white, black, brown, pink, red, orange, green, blue, yellow, purple, or black. Whatever we opt for, we can ensure that our new frames offer the same quality and durability as any other furniture item.
Before choosing to buy a customized bed, we should keep in mind that our goal is to get a unique product that can blend into any type of bedroom setting. Also, when looking for a customized bed, make sure it has enough room underneath the mattress, so we do not hit our knees or toes when getting up in the middle of the night. Make sure that we measure accurately before ordering!
