Have you ever gotten out of bed and felt as though you were too high or too low to the ground? Bed height is a very important factor, as you don’t want to struggle to get out of your bed in the morning and put too much pressure on your body. Continue reading to learn how to find the ideal height for your bed.
Test It Out
Your bed height should generally be proportionate to your overall height. If you think your bed is the wrong height, put it to the test by sitting on the edge of your bed. If your knees fall below your hips, that means your bed is too low for your height. On the other hand, if your feet dangle and don’t touch the floor, your bed is too high. For the ideal bed height, your feet should be able to rest flat on the floor, with your knees aligned with your hips.
Choosing The Perfect Height Of A Mattress
There are many ways to identify your perfect bed height by using a few everyday items found around your home. For example, if you have a standard 18-inch dining chair, take a seat and try to get up without using your hands to help push you up. If you have difficulty standing up on your own, it’s likely that a low-standing mattress is too low to the ground and will cause problems getting out of bed.
If you have a higher mattress or are thinking about purchasing a bed that is higher off the ground, find a 24 or 30-inch bar stool to sit on. If it is too hard to get yourself in and out of the stool, it will be hard to get in and out of bed. Remember that mattresses are much softer than the arms of a chair, so if you rely on the arms to push yourself up, it is not the right height for you.
