Japanese bed: know the advantages and disadvantages of the furniture

The Japanese beds, known for their minimalism and their proximity to the floor, are one of the oriental furniture most used in the West, especially for those who are interested and want to follow the minimalist concept of "less is more", always present in the culture and decoration Eastern.

In this post, let's talk a little about these beds that are increasingly common in homes and home decor stores, what their configuration, their advantages, disadvantages and present a gallery full of models and ideas to inspire you!

What is the Japanese bed or Oriental bed?

But why the bed low? It is believed that the proximity to the floor can interfere with the quality of sleep, making it quieter and allowing the renewal of energy. This is because being with the body closest to the ground makes it easier for the earth to absorb the energies.

The traditional model consists of a wooden board, mat or mat with no feet and a thin mattress made with geese feathers, which can be rolled up during the day and stored in a closet to free up space for other activities.

Here in the West, this type of bed has been brought in an alternative way, which attempts to exclude the idea of ​​a bed frame with a platform and replace it with a plate or platform that supports the mattress, either lower, box or with standard height.

For this, there are several models of low platforms that are being sold in furniture and decoration stores, designed in planned furniture stores or even that can be made at home with big boards of wood or MDF or even with pallets, entering a concept of reuse too!

The advantages and disadvantages of having one at home

The Japanese bed is extremely attractive for being a model of easy access and handling, being a very economical option, with several options of styles, colors and materials, serving different styles.

For those who are in the minimalist style, it is the perfect option, because the Japanese bed does not have any type of adornment and usually have simple and straight lines. The underside of the platforms can also be used to create niches and drawers for storing clothes and other personal items, optimizing the use of space.

In addition, the height and mattress of the Japanese bed improves health and provides a perfect rest, with improved circulation, muscle relaxation and improved posture at bedtime. However, for those who are accustomed to sleeping in the high western beds, Japanese beds may be more difficult to get accustomed to, taking time and patience longer.

In the case of mattresses already used in the other beds, the adaptation can be faster, only counting on the question of height.

Another disadvantage, especially for those who have a Japanese bed with supports, is the issue of cleanliness which may be a little more difficult and constant, since the bed is closer to the floor. In this sense, beds with a solid or monolithic platform may be more interesting as they do not accumulate dirt on the underside.
