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.
Well there’s no reason why you can’t do this nowadays as there are a multitude of woodworking plans on the market allowing you to create any manner of bespoke furniture items for your house. In this article we’ll quickly run through the process for creating a bed from scratch using woodwork plans, so that you too can make a saving on a bed of your design. Now obviously this quick run through is designed to explain the straightforward nature of building a bed from simple materials, but as you progress in confidence you’ll be able to change elements in any set of plans and create a unique piece of furniture.
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.
