When you head to a mattress store, retailers have a lot of different types of sleep solutions to choose from. Generally, these sleep systems come at a standard height of about 25 inches or two feet off the ground. You can, however, adjust the height of your bed to however you see fit. Here are some suggestions when considering different heights of sleep systems.
For a Low Sleep System
Lower sleep systems are great for a number of reasons. You can take advantage of loft space with lower beds. They are better for pet owners. Many new parents also get low sleep systems so kids don’t fall too far off the bed. When you like to sleep lower to the ground, it’s best to get platform bed. While many simply place a box spring and mattress on the floor, that type of sleep system is designed to be placed on a frame. Platforms will give you the support your mattress is designed for but keeps your bed closer to the ground.
For a High Sleep System
You have more options with high sleep systems. You can purchase a high frame or loft your bed with lifts. You can choose between a platform style of bed or a traditional sleep system with a box spring and mattress. If you need storage, then under the bed storage is easy with a high sleep system. It also can discourage kids from climbing up or pets from jumping up.
Both high and low sleep systems can be difficult to get in and out of, so if you suffer from back problems or are older in age, the average height is the best option. Consider finding a height that compliments yours, one where you can easily sit down on the edge. That’s the bed height that’s just right!
