Space Saver vs Standard Beds

Image of a Space Saver Bed

At Get Laid Beds we are frequently asked about the difference between our space-saver and standard height beds.

Space-Saver Beds:

Here is an example of one of our space saver beds. As you can see it sits very low down which is very ideal for saving space. These tend to be used in attic bedrooms and apartments as space-saving is quite essential in these types of properties. The main difference between a standard-height bed and a space-saver bed is that they take up less floorspace as the bed frame itself is smaller than it would be with a standard-height bed. This gives the mattress a floating effect, no legs sit at the feet of the bed, meaning that it saves vital room and you also won’t experience the pain of catching your toes on the legs of the bed.

Sleeping In Cycles: Feeling Refreshed

When we sleep, we do so in several different stages. First, we enter a light sleep. Then a deep sleep, and finally a dream-state. These stages often happen several times in a night, and run in cycles of roughly 90 minutes each. This may sound like it doesn’t matter, but sleep cycles can be used to your advantage.

Have you ever found yourself exhausted when waking up, despite a long nights sleep? You’re sure you dozed off at around ten o’clock, why are you still so tired? It’s likely you woke up in the middle of one of these cycles. When you interrupt a cycle, you often drag your brain out of a deep sleep or dream-state, and it can leave you feeling groggy and disoriented. It can have a serious affect on your concentration throughout the day, and will affect things like your attention span and your response times.
