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.
There has been much written about how it is supposedly bad Feng Shui to store items under a bed and an over-emphasized notion that air currents need to pass freely under a bed. I have never been able to correlate anything negative resulting with a client who has stored items under their bed, be it sweater boxes, earthquake supplies or exercise equipment. This is a popular myth that one can ignore. The color bed spread, pillows and sheets that one uses in accordance with Five Element Theory is uniquely reliant on the energies of the room, created at the time the house was built. In other words, there are no generic colors that should be used or not used. Ideal colors for a room are partially based on the orientation of the house and the location of the bedroom within the house. There is no specific height that a bed needs to be. Some people prefer a high one, others a low one. This is subjective and to your liking. Kids often like bunk beds and the low ceiling that the upper bed provides for the lower bed. It is very womb like and protective. While this might feel claustrophobic for an adult, it is okay for kids.
Who wouldn’t want a comfortable and a longer sleep time for their babies? It’s what the doctor has told us all these years -- give our babies enough sleep every single day. So let’s give our babies the comfort that they deserve. One of the things that you have to decide while your baby is growing up is when to change their beds. Is that crib in the room a bit smaller now for your toddler baby? Smaller beds would mean smaller space for them to move around. And the smaller the space, the less comfortable it is to sleep at. So decide now whether to get your baby a toddler bed or a regular single bed?
