BEDS

Beds

Beds are the main piece of equipment in the sleeping area: in addition to their primary function of relaxation, the bed structure is in fact constantly subjected to stylistic and formal experiments. For furnishing the bedroom, we offer comprehensive solutions that characterize the space through materials, colors, padding and fabrics in well-designed combinations. The bed has therefore been designed to effectively combine functionality and aesthetics, whether in a double or children's bedroom, a room with a study or a corner of a small studio. For so many different needs, often combined, there are many types of beds on the market: from classic double and single beds in all sizes and intermediate shapes; from a bed with a storage space that uses the space under the bed base, to a four-poster bed whose romantic aesthetics inherited from the past responds to new needs today; from bunk beds, ideal for small spaces or built-up height, to space-saving solutions in the form of fold-out sofas and fold-out or hidden models.

Functionality, design and styles: what influences the choice of bed

< p> When choosing a bed, the first thing to consider is the space available to avoid choosing a model that is too bulky. In addition, being a piece of furniture in close contact with the body and for many hours in a row, it is very important that it is made of durable, easily washable, natural, hypoallergenic and durable materials. Then the finishes, colors and components can be combined into a variety of models and styles for all possible functional and aesthetic needs. The basic element of every bed - the structure - influences the shape and aesthetics of this piece of furniture more than anything else. The bed frame can be made of wood, solid or plywood, varnished or natural, or metal. And the design of the structure may be towards the classic taste, with more extensive workmanship and padding, or a contemporary, minimalist style more suitable for space optimization. The slimmer and lighter structure of modern beds, made of innovative materials and technologies, allows you to minimize the load and place them wherever you want. The bed is therefore a mirror of the space that surrounds it, according to different styles: classic or contemporary, Scandinavian or ethnic, minimalist or full of decoration and upholstery, well beyond the simple purpose of sleeping and relaxing.

How to put the bed in the room? < / h3>

The sleeping area, a space generally dedicated to moments of relaxation, finds the main element of equipment in the bed, allowing for a perfect rest and the opportunity to lie down at any time of the day, sleep or even relax while watching TV or reading a book, even soft office for working with computers or tablets. The first variable that needs to be defined is whether it is intended to accommodate one or two people, and therefore is single, double, etc., with different intermediate formats. Formats to be compared with the dimensions of the room, as well as with the overall dimensions of door and window openings and in general: at least 50 cm around the bed, 70 cm if the wardrobe is opened nearby. On the other hand, if the space is small, the bed can be moved to the corner, thus dividing the side corridors in half, or it can be raised on the mezzanine and obtained under other functions. The height of the ceiling in the bedroom allows you to use both the canopy, almost a "room in the room", and the attic, lifting the upper part of the bed and integrating, for example, a wardrobe or a study corner under it.

Let's find out how it is made there is a bed: main components and materials

In the Western tradition, a bed is a complex piece of furniture composed of various elements. An essential part is the base that will accommodate the mattress: it can simply be a raised surface on vertical supports, called legs, or a closed parallelepiped, with or without an internal container, with a resting surface that can sometimes be in different positions, both with mechanical and electric. Then there is the mesh, the primary function of which is to support the body and the mattress; it can be made of steel with a more or less wide and rigid mesh or wooden slats, depending on the required flexibility. The base and base of the bed together form the actual structure of the bed, and the soft surfaces and padding characterize the cover, removable or not depending on the need for easier cleaning. A simple combination of bed base and legs, without a headboard, is also proposed as a unique object called sommier. Moving on to the design of metal beds, wrought iron and, from the 19th century, brass were among the most used materials over time, before being more innovative and cheaper, which gave rise to steel beds, aluminum beds, light alloys or carbon fiber beds, to those partially made of glass. The mattress is then decisive for comfort, as it inserts a soft layer between the base structure and the body. Depending on different requirements, it can be made of many different materials and layers, and hence of different heights. Then, in keeping with the oriental tradition, the bed was greatly simplified, down to one element, "futon", which in Japanese culture literally means "rolled up mattress". The Futon is actually a portable cotton mattress that can be used when needed while lying on the floor or on a mat with an insulating function known as a tatami, traditionally made from rice straw covered with rushes.

Accessories and components to increase the versatility of the bed

In order to integrate the basic elements of the bed, some accessories and additional elements have characterized styles and functions over time, in some cases becoming indispensable parts of modern beds designed. For example, the cover of the structure has enlivened the increasingly widespread type of upholstered bed, often offered by the same brands specializing in upholstered seats. Whether it is a fabric or leather bed, it has a wooden or metal frame with possibly fire-resistant polyester, polyurethane or latex foam. The cover can be fixed, quilted or capitonné, or removable, so it can be washed periodically and is easy to replace. An upholstered bed is often complemented by an indispensable headboard, the padding of which gives maximum expression and utility, just like the back of the sofa, and in the case of the latter, we can find beds with a high or capitonné headboard, as well as adjustable headrests, which, in addition to serving as a pillow or headboard, are fully adapted to people who rest or lean on it to read or watch TV. The headboard, moreover, as a very versatile element, it can integrate shelves or handles, supporting books or lamps, but also built-in lighting, as well as hide a wardrobe space, in a bed with a headboard for storage, useful for storing pillows and blankets until it becomes a real wardrobe . Not always present, with a function more aesthetic than practical, is the footrest, mirroring the headboard, but at the foot of the bed. As a load, it is located in the large bedroom. To complement the bed's volume, integrated bins and drawers fill the remaining space, often using the part between the mesh and the floor. The storage bed, although of ancient origin, has in recent decades developed new opening technologies to facilitate its use. In fact, the net lifting mechanism, tilted or parallel to the floor, allows you to easily store and retrieve everything under the bed, making it with a slightly larger base area, very useful in the absence or support of insufficient garments. To keep your everyday items tidy and close at hand, you can place bedside tables with doors and drawers or simple coffee tables next to the bed. Even one or more shelves, with or without integrated LED lighting, can fulfill the same function, especially when the free space is limited to the wall itself.

Single, double, French, queen and king size: let's discover all dimensions beds

Each country, people and tradition has developed its own nomenclature to define the dimensions related to the bed and its standards. Generally, in Europe, the most widespread division is into a single bed (in the width range of 75-120 cm) and a double bed with possible widths of 160, 180 and 200 cm, the most common of which is 180 cm. For example, in Italy, the dimensions of a bed, also called "squares", are divided into 5 categories, in ascending order: a single bed or a single bed, a bed with one and a half squares, then 20 cm more, next to the French bed, up to the matrimonial bed, and the currently rare triple bed or King Size bed, which met the need to accommodate the whole family with children. If instead we sleep in Portugal, Anglo-Saxon countries or North America, there is a new classification of single beds (single or twin beds), followed by Queen Size (160 cm × 190 cm) and King Size (180 cm × 190 cm). ), to the newer and more comfortable California King (183 × 212 cm) or Super King Size (180 × 200 cm). Similar classifications have also been adopted by countries in the area of ​​India and Indonesia as well as China, while the Japanese classification is in line with national standards. Generally, a single bed, due to its size, is intended only for one person, it is easiest to set up in a room's furnishings, in a seating corner in the living room or office, as a dormeuse, and also provide space underneath, with a few cm larger, comfortable extra bed for guests . In turn, the double bed is no longer intended only for couples, but due to its convenience, it is more and more often chosen by singles, ensuring a better psychophysical state after waking up. Due to its size, it requires a separate space, possibly away from the living area or raised on the mezzanine, turning from time to time into a relaxation zone, but also for work, with a computer or tablet.
