Trend Alert: Low-lying Beds
These days it seems like beds are at an all time low. Many mattresses no longer require a boxspring, and some modern bed frames rest only a few inches above the floor. Some consider this trend inconvenient – who wants to squat that low just to get in and out of bed? Others see it as an innovative and sometimes necessary design choice.
For rooms with lower ceilings, a lower bed is an obvious choice, but even in a room with a higher ceiling, lowering the bed is a simple and stylish way to free up some wall space for decoration.
In terms of practicality, lower bed frames can be used for extra storage space and even upgraded to house power outlets and USB ports.
Whether for convenience or aesthetic, low beds are catching on. If you choose to feature a low bed in your bedroom, make sure the rest of your furniture fits proportionally.
