The bedroom is the most important room in a house by Feng Shui criteria, and many articles expound on this topic. But the bed its self, apart from the bedroom, is the subject of much misinformation, so this article will attempt to cover some of the major concerns. The shape of the bed should be a stable square shape as most beds are. In the 1960’s there was a brief trend in having round beds (so Austin Powers!) Round beds are not practical and they do not provide a stable sleeping atmosphere. They make energy swirl, which might be okay for other activities besides sleeping. There is nothing inherently bad about a water bed, popularized also in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Since the water is totally sealed inside the bed, it would not even work as the water element if a room needed water present.
Any room must have its very own centrepiece which becomes the focal point of all the other items inside that particular room. For a bedroom, the focal point should be the bed. What better way to emphasize a centrepiece than having an oversized one? The wooden material gives the bedroom a natural, warm, and a homey aura to the room. This aura is important to naturally induce sleep and provide a relaxing feel to the room. Not only does the wood manifest good aura, it also makes it easier to design the interior as wood fits perfectly with almost anything such as wooden cabinets, dressers, coffee tables, and chairs.
The slats and connected bed frame should be able to take your full adult weight spread evenly over the entire bed. Although people often stand on beds, this is only on top of the mattress which evenly distributes the weight across all of the slats. If you find any weaknesses or cracked wooden beams, remove and replace these parts and ensure all connections and joints are tight. Your bed frame should now be complete, all you need to do is drop on the mattress and duvet and fix those hospital corners and the bed is ready for some serious sleeping. Creating a simple bed is really that simple, although clearly any woodworking bed plans you use or purchase will go into much greater detail, but hopefully this article has allayed any fears about the possibility of building your own bed from scratch.
