bed-fi

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 

We spend so much time here do we have any bed nerds?

 

I am thinking of getting an adjustable bed. It would double as the most elite way I can think of watching movies or relaxed gaming beating sofa with foot support by some margin.  

How durable are those electrical motors generally and how expensive to replace?

 

The idea came after getting a new apartment and our living room is close to a road which give me all kind of noise I never had to deal with before. Better isolation in the bed room and no need for a recliner. 

 

One thing I wonder about is ergonomics. Is there a scientific fact we should all lie flat or is that just traditional way of sleeping?

I have had motors go out in an old model after maybe ten years which means it probably had better motors than today's stuff.  Best thing is to sit up and remove any load during actuation.  I noticed IKEA is carrying a semi modular setup now.  I think for price, support and availability I would go that route as long as those motors aren't poorly rated.  Haven't researched them myself.

 

I'm really not into the motorized bed thing anymore and I think a more ideal situation is to have the screen come to you via drop down and such. tongue_smile.gif  I prefer to set the sleep timer and doze off on a flat bed.  I couldn't do that on an adjustable bed as a side sleeper.

 

Currently I'm more interested in thermal management of bedding materials.  Also removing as much synthetic material from my sleep area as possible that can potentially degrade and become airborne or inhaled.

 

Ergonomically I think people are biased to side or back sleeping so I would move from that point forward in your research.

I don't know. The bed - technically and legally - belongs to my cat. She prefers flat surfaces.

Though I'm thinking about picking up a chaise lounge or a Eames chair for lounging with music and movies.

That´s the sad part can´t take the cats along with me :(

 

Pretty much decided on a bed. More complex then I thought. Thought of IKEA of course but have no local IKEA store where I can try. But they have done great in tests compared to much more expensive brands. Particularly regarding durability. But there is so many new models coming out all the time and all type of local brands.

Sorry about the kitties. frown.gif

There's nothing better than going to sleep and waking up with some cuddles and purrs.

Would also like to know. I've thought about beds a lot but the money just isn't there and my bed is fine as is. It is only a twin(high schooler=bed all to my self) i'm large but i get a nice cozy fit.
What about pillow-fi? My mom used to just buy the cheapest pillows for me but after looking into it, better pillows are only a few bucks more and for something you spend 1/3 of your day on it really is a smart investment.

King Koil ftw! I don't really know much about beds but my current bed is very (make that super) comfy.

Aerobed.  You can take it with you and it offers near infinite adjustability.  Concrete is surprisingly nice as well, especially in the summer.

Something i noticed that was pretty funny, we buy new cars and all kinds of gizmos but don't really consider a new bed. Most of my family still uses some old relic, when you will spend 1/3 of your life on the thing and they say good health is the foundation for good health. How many of us run benchmarks and test for "synergy" on these things? popcorn.gif I wonder if a bedding forum exists somewhere where people post impressions n stuff..............trading one for another like they do with headphones. "Oh this week i tested a new number on my sleep number" regular_smile%20.gif

And, uh, you don't want to trade bedding materials.  eek.gif

Delivery would be expensive and will take a long time. Trading internationally would be interesting.
