The disadvantage of getting a toddler bed is it can only be used for some time. These beds can only be used for babies about one and a half to three and a half years of age. After that, it would be useless. This can be just an additional cost. So if getting a new bed for your toddler is as easy as you think, put it this way: weigh the pros and cons. Remember a baby would be the one sleeping on it so it would require a little more caution. Think also of your budget. If for the mean time you can only spend this much for a bed, then better to get a less costly one.
A headboard is not absolutely essential, but very helpful when a bed is near a low window. A solid headboard will pass as a faux wall and provide stability and block a draft over the head. Once in a while you may read about the shape of the headboard being significant and in my early studies I read a book which cautioned against having a headboard that looked like a tombstone marker. This should not be a big concern for anyone. There is nothing superior or inferior about a bed frame’s construction materials. Bed frames can be made of wood, metal or even some other material like marble. One can do without a bed frame and just sleep on a mattress or futon if they like. However, some rooms need the metal element and if so, then a metal bed frame can provide about 30+ pounds of metal just in the frame its self. Some bed frames have an overhang with lighting for reading and this is like a miniature beam over the head, possibly contributing to sleeping problems. It is also not ideal to have a bed with a mirrored headboard of a mirrored ceiling. The power of a mirror can be too strong in a sleeping area.
A bed is in fact a very personal space and it is best to not use a bed that was owned by someone else for a long time. In many cultures, a newly married couple will receive a new mattress and some people get a new mattress whenever they move into a new house. Many people instinctually do not want to keep a mattress slept in by a former spouse. There is a feeling by most people that residual energies, if not just memories, linger with the old bed and past relationships. Four poster beds with a canopy cover end up being good remedies for beds under exposed beams. The fabric of the canopy can deflect the downward pressure of a beam. That said, you don’t want a bed that is too large and overbearing for a smallish room. It is not good or bad Feng Shui to have night stands and you can ignore the New Age myth that a single woman needs to have two night stands in order to get into a relationship.
