Modern beds and how you can improve your sleeping comfort
A healthy person spends about 7 hours a night in bed. With an average life expectancy of approx. 79 years, we spend a total of 33 years or 12,045 days in bed! But this time is not wasted. A good night's sleep promotes our mental health and improves our physical well-being. So the better you sleep, the better you can enjoy life too. To ensure this, you need a comfortable bed that suits your individual needs and of course the rest of the interior. In today's article you will learn what influence modern beds can have on our sleep and how to choose the perfect bed model for your own bedroom. Here are our tips!

Modern beds – criteria that you should consider before making your final choice
Before you even start looking for a new bed for the bedroom, children's room or guest room, you should ask yourself a few important questions:
How much space does the room have to offer? The size and type of bed depends first of all on the actual size of your bedroom. For example, a super king-size four-poster bed may not be the best choice if you only have a small bedroom. It might not even fit through the door! Similarly, a smaller bed, such as a Japanese-style futon or fold-away bed, might look lost and really out of place in a spacious bedroom.
Who are you buying the bed for? A child, a teenager and an adult have different needs. And we're not just talking about bed size. The mattress and bed frame also depend on the weight, height and health of the sleeper. As a rule of thumb, you can buy a large bed for a growing child, but not the other way around. And if you are buying a bed for the guest room or the occasional surprise visit as opposed to a bed for night use, this is also an important factor. Sofa beds and other foldable options are particularly popular right now because they are multifunctional and space-saving.
Modern beds affect all bedroom furnishings
Are bed boxes important to you? Smaller and minimalist bedrooms benefit above all from additional storage space in the form of bed boxes. This saves a lot of space for all the things and reduces clutter. However, not all bed frames have enough space to place bed boxes underneath. This must therefore be taken into account when considering the different bed types.
Which bed design suits your room furnishings best? You need a bed that blends seamlessly with the current decor of your bedroom. This is especially true if you don't plan to redecorate the entire space around the bed. Take a close look at your current interior design and decide accordingly. Modern beds come in all shapes and sizes, usually in neutral colors and with a typically minimalist look with little embellishment and decoration.
Wood or upholstered? Wood is usually the first choice of material for bed frames. It is versatile, durable, easy to clean and gives every bed character. Upholstered bed frames, on the other hand, fit perfectly into a cozy environment. These modern beds are great for adding a luxurious touch to your bedroom. They often have attractive headboards made of various soft textiles. This is just perfect if you want to read a book in comfort before bed. As a bonus, you won't break your toes if you accidentally bump into a padded bed frame. This also makes it perfect for the nursery.

The four-poster bed shines with luxury and extravagance
Modern beds support good sleep, which is essential for our health and well-being. As the centerpiece of any bedroom interior, they must also look chic and attractive. Furnish your bedroom nicely and thereby ensure your own healthy sleeping experience. We wish you many restful nights!
