FAQs About Bed Frames in Singapore
The bed frame that the mattress sits upon plays just an important role. Having a bed frame can help to maximize your sleep quality and prolong the durability of your mattress. You can look at the bed frame as the foundation for your mattress.
Yes, a bed frame will definitely make a difference to the look of your room and sleeping comfort. Unless you want your mattress on the floor like the Japanese, who have successfully avoided using them for hundreds of years. You may think that a bed frame is like an unnecessary expense but it’s best to keep your mattress on a bed frame as there are many reasons for it.
1) Feng Shui
If you believe in Feng Shui (the ancient art of space harmonization), a bed frame can allow your chi (energy) to circulate when you sleep on a bed that is raised above the floor. If your bed is on the floor, your energy will stagnate and it will affect your sleep quality. As hot air rises and cold air sinks, you will be more vulnerable to the cold air.
2) Your mattress might easily get infected with mold and insects
The futon (Japanese foldable mattress) is different from the western mattress and their home is made with tatami floors. It’s easy to air both the mattress and the tatami floor as the Japanese will usually keep the futon in the morning. Whereas a western mattress is too large and heavy to be moved around. Due to the lack of circulation, the space underneath the mattress will become an ideal environment for mold and insects.
3) Save space in your tiny room
The homes in Singapore are well-known to be small. You can save a lot of space with a storage bed frame.
A good bed frame can offer you a better sleep quality and help prevent noise disturbance like squeaking, creaking, sliding sound. As a rule of thumb, a good bed frame can last you about 8 years before it eventually becomes worn and loses its structural properties. A not so good bed frame will make your mattress become lumpy due to inconsistent support from the bed frame. Many of us will keep the same bed frame until it breaks but refreshing your bed frame is just as important as changing your mattress every 8 years for quality sleep.
To choose a bed frame you need to match your mattress and your ideal comfort preference with the different types of bed bases that are available in Singapore. The most common bed frames are the Divan Bed Base and the Slatted Bed Base.
1) Divan Bed Base
A divan bed base comes with a solid base and a spring base. If you need extra support for your mattress and looking for a firmer feel, you can choose a solid base. A spring bed base is to give your mattress a more bouncy feel.
2) Slatted Bed Base
Slatted bed frames have been around in Singapore since the early 90s. You might have seen your grandparents metal bed frames where the bed base has gaps between them. In modern days, wooden slatted bed base is becoming a popular trend among Singaporeans as our love for the Scandinavian-theme home renovation continues to rise. The slatted bed base offers support for the mattress without altering the firmness and slowing the process of sagging.
In A Nutshell
Regardless how premium or high-end your bed frame is, it will still look different when it’s placed in your room due to the overall design. As you set out to touch up, renovate or refurbish your bedroom, your bed frame is the most important object in your room. You can either purchase your bed frame based on the color of your existing walls, floors and furniture or vice versa.
