I'm Going to Buy a New Mattress, Bed Frame, and Header and I Feel Overwhelmed! Can You Help?

The only way to choose is go to a store and lie on all the mattresses. Ask the salesperson abut their return policy. Nothing needs to "match". IF you buy a full sized anything, they are all compatible.

1. How can I raise my bed frame cheaply?

First you need a base. I suggest you go to the local hardware store and get the thickest piece of plywood. You need something that is the same size of your bed but rigid - actually have them cut it about 2 inches short lengthwise and widthwise so that the board is hidden on each side. Bonus - look on craigslist for old bed frames being throw out, wood, old tables or whatever. You have to look for stuff in your area and use your imagination a little. You might need a circular saw (or beg the person throwing out the wood to cut whatever for you). This could be free or $12 for the plywood at big box. Then I would use milk crates. How many you need depends on how stable you want your bed to be and how big your bed is. A basic twin with a board under it can definitely be held by just 4. You could add a couple in the middle and go 3 on each side if you want extra reinforcement. You can get these for free at some recycling centers or supermarkets. Myself I had a rig like this in college but used textbooks instead of milk crates

2. What do I order with my IKEA bed frame?

We just purchased the Norslund bed tonight. We asked an IKEA employee whether we needed slats or not if we were going to use a mattress and boxed springs. She told us that the slats are for if you are not going to use boxed springs and that we just needed the midbeam along with the headboard/footboard and sides. I think the IKEA website is a bit confusing because it says you have to purchase the slatted bed base, but you only need that if you are not going to use box springs. Edit: If you are planning on purchasing a king bed from IKEA to use with box springs, I would suggest buying the slats. Since king box springs come as two twin box springs, the midbeam does not provide enough support in my and my husband's opinion. If you are buying a twin, double, or queen, you really wo not need the slats since the box spings for those are one single piece.

3. Need help! Making a bed frame!?

An old cliche': "When in Rome, do as the Romans do." Or, stay home. Some people have not learned or have been raised to have manners, class or tactfulness. There is protocol in every aspect in life. For those who do not, ignore them when they speak in a different tongue - even if you do understand what they are saying. Remember - they chose the disadvantage with no encouragement from anyone. Let them shine in their lack of respect. Peace and Blessings (((Bansi)))

4. How to paint a rod iron bed frame?

You can rough it up with sand paper fine grade before your spray paint it

5. Would a twin mattress fit a full bed frame?

so your asking if the 2 things you have will fit. will you please check and tell me? I would like to know.

6. What mattress is best to pair with the NORESUND bed frame from IKEA?

You really should check with the IKEA personnel to get the correct answer that you are looking for. If you have a store in your area please visit them in person. The mattress base is obviously for the mattress to sit on which gives it extra support.

7. If I were to buy a new bed frame that was low to the ground, would I need to buy a new mattress?

as long as it is the same size frame, your mattress will work fine

8. How do you cut steel? is it hard and what tools do you use? I want to shorten my bed frame, it's a canopy and

Going Organic with Bed Frames
The bedroom is one of the most important rooms in the home. At the end of the day, it is where we all go to get a good night's rest, and get ready for the next day. We all need a decent amount of sleep daily - have you ever been cranky from lack of sleep? Well, if it's getting a great environment to be able to unwind at the end of the day, you might want to consider your bedroom's furniture. And, with the bed being the centerpiece of the bedroom, you might want to take a look at organic beds.What's so Special about Organic Furniture?We spend a ton of our time sleeping (about a third of our lives), and therefore spend a ton of our time in the bedroom. Conventional beds, bedroom furniture, mattresses and bedding emit unhealthy synthetic gases and toxins that can accumulate in the bedroom and in the home. These chemicals can enter the body through inhalation or skin contact. Considering the time we spend in the bedroom - sleeping each night, unwinding at the end of the day, or relaxing on a weekend - it is the bedroom furniture that we are most exposed to. Think about all the toxins you would be exposed to! Babies and young children are especially vulnerable to these. Even if the body has the means to get rid some of these toxins, a lifetime of accumulation means that not all of them will be removed.Organic furniture does not give off these toxins, and using organic bedroom furniture can improve the quality of the air in one of the most important rooms in the house. Organic beds, such as the popular kinds made by skilled Amish craftsmen, are made from organic hardwoods. You could go ahead and even fit an organic mattress on to it. This allows people to improve the quality of air in the bedroom and eliminate exposure to synthetic gases and toxins.What's the Deal with Amish Furniture?Amish craftsmen are known for their skill in making furniture. This group is popularly known to adopt a very simple lifestyle, but a less known fact about them is their skill in crafts. Craftsmen from different Amish communities from all over the United States, such as Minnesota, Iowa, Indiana, Ohio, and Wisconsin, among others, create masterfully-made furniture. Amish furniture, including beds, wardrobes or armoires, dressers, and other bedroom furniture, is made from 100% wood, without the use of particle boards and similar materials.The use of genuine hardwoods, such as cherry, oak, maple, and walnut, ensures the great quality of the furniture they create. Amish furniture is made-to-order, and can be customized to meet a customer's individual needs. Their works are designed for longevity, and will turn into heirlooms and antiques, considering the art and skill placed in their creation, and the sheer longevity of the pieces. Features of an Amish-Made Bed Once a customer has selected the type of wood that he or she wants their bed to be made out of, Amish craftsmen start their work. Amish beds can fit standard-sized mattresses, of course, but since they are made-to-order, can be customized to fit custom mattress sizes. Other changes that are popular with custom beds could be modifications on the headboard's size, or a higher bed frame. Footrails, which are similar to the rails to the left and right of the mattress, can also be included in a bed. Other custom options can include more bed slats installed (which can depend on what kind of mattress the customer will use), or the addition of shelves beneath the bed. These shelves can be detachable, or attached to the frame.Because Amish craftsmen infuse a lot of art in their work, Amish beds will be unique. Great attention is paid to the type of wood in each piece. Amish craftsmen's skills are passed down from generation to generation, making for a rich tradition of quality beds and bedroom furniture that is aesthetically-pleasing and very durable. As far as organic furniture goes, Amish beds are an excellent choice that any customer won't go wrong with. Other Organic Bedroom Options If you're already considering getting an organic bed, then it makes sense to get an organic mattress to partner with it. After all, if you're looking to improve air quality and have a more natural relaxing sanctuary, then an organic mattress is the way to go.An organic mattress is made with organic materials, such as organic cotton and naturally fire-resistant wool. Natural latex (which come from the sap of rubber trees) are also used. These materials make organic mattresses free from the pesticides and toxin-ridden flame retardants present in conventional mattresses. This is because standard mattresses are usually made of a core of polyurethane foam, which is a manufactured, synthetic material that is naturally flammable. Manufacturers need to use various chemicals called flame retardants to make them safe. It is these chemicals that are dangerous to health - various studies link common flame retardants such as ammonium polyphosphate, boric acid, PDBEs, melamine, and silica to various deteriorations in health.Specifically, PDBEs are linked to conditions such as behavioural changes, decreased sperm count, hearing defects, and thyroid hormone disruption. Cancer in laboratory animals has also been linked to PDBEs. Boric acid, while a relatively safe pesticide, is poisonous when accidentally ingested and can enter the bloodstream through inhalation. All these potential risks mean going organic for your mattress seems like a very easy choice to make.Quality Organic Bedroom Furniture for a Better Life Using an organic bed, mattress, and even other bedroom furniture can go a long way to improving the quality of health at home. Not only can organic furniture give off that relaxing aura of being close to nature, but they also have solid benefits by eliminating exposure to toxins that can cause unwelcome health conditions. Amish-made pieces of furniture also support the economy of the rural Midwest, as the woods harvested from states in the Upper Midwest and the skills of Amish craftsmen are used in their creation. Consumers can rest easier in their personal sanctuaries with a beautiful, unique, and healthier bed in their rooms.
